Yesterday I said goodbye to the Fujifilm X-S10 which had loyally served me for the past year.
I really liked this body but with the X-S20 officially announced, it was time to go if I wanted to make the most of the resale value. Although I only owned this body for just over a year, I did use it quite a bit. The majority of the time it was in electronic shutter so thanks to that I had roughly 1600 actuations only.
Currently I’m still unsure if I’ll replace it with the new X-S20. On paper the body seems like the most likely candidate and if the price was similar to how much I paid for the X-S10 then it would be a no brainer. Although the US pricing is quite fair, here it is launching at just under $2300 AUD.
For that price you can also get the Sony Alpha a7C for $2269, the Nikon Z5 for $1861 and Canon EOS R8 for $2364 (even the older RP is only $1499). All of these are full frame cameras so for me it’s hard to justify spending so much an on APSC camera.
I plan to wait until the end of the year and if Sony do release a competitively priced a7C II, I may just sell my existing Fujifilm 33mm prime and go all in on Sony Full Frame. If not, I’ll simply wait for a good sale on the X-S20 and pick that up.
Regardless of what I do, I’ll be sure to post about it. If you’ve enjoyed this, please subscribe below to be notified of future posts.
