Default New Bayer Sensor APS-C Cams from Fuji

Could this be a precursor to a Bayer XT?

For what it is the X-A5 + XC15-45mm, with a 24MP CMOS sensor, and a whole
bunch of Fujifilm goodies, and ability to use all the X-mount lenses all for
$600 makes this a pretty good entry into the mirrorless World for folks
trying to keep costs down, or looking for lightweight kit.

As far as a Bayer X-T goes, that does not seem to be on the cards with the
X-H1 (with OBIS) almost on us, and still using the 24MP X-Trans III. Then
with the X-T3 to be announced in the third quarter of 2018, and speculated to
have a new APS-C sensor somewhere between 24-30MP with no confirmation
whether it will be X-Trans, or Bayer, but the concensus is it will be a new
X-Trans IV(without OBIS).

Nice to see the better macro capability. I'm still using a G10 for macro
instead of sticking a +3 on the X-E1.

Which lenses are you using on your X-E1?

When you speak of +3, are you refering to extension tubes?

Have you considered upgrading your X-E1 to a new X-E3, the X-T20/X-T2, or
even this new X-A5?

The new generation of X-series cameras are leaps, and bounds ahead the first
generation such as your X-E1. I currently find myself owning an X-E2, an
X-T2, and an X-E3, along with four Fujinon primes, and two zooms.

Which lenses are you using on your X-E1?


I have three zooms and an 18 mm; not the lens they used to claim as a
macro/portrait, I forget which that is, but it's not what I would call a
macro lens.

When you speak of +3, are you refering to extension tubes?


No, close-up lens. Actually I meant +10, getting confused because I use
+3 on my glasses for close up work.


Have you considered upgrading your X-E1 to a new X-E3, the X-T20/X-T2, or
even this new X-A5?


I'd certainly like an X-T2 body, and the long zoom (for sports) one of
these days.

The new generation of X-series cameras are leaps, and bounds ahead the first
generation such as your X-E1. I currently find myself owning an X-E2, an
X-T2, and an X-E3, along with four Fujinon primes, and two zooms.


I realise they have improved a lot but I don't have unlimited funds. And
I still reckon the X-E1 and the original lenses are pretty good.

You should get pretty good results with the extension tubes, otherwise there
is always the new XF80.

You might have an opportunity for that X-T2 body near the end of the year
after they announce/release the X-T3, and if the have a repeast of their
discounts. I guess you were not able to take advantage of the discounts last
year. There were some good deals on those long lenses the 50-140 & the
100-400. That was my opportunity to pick up the XF16mm f/1.4 which is an
absolutely amazing lens.

Didn't think the discounts were good enough last year, but certainly
keeping my eyes open.
