Right now I am debating selling the Sigma DP3M. I want to commit to the Fuji system. I may also sell the Ricoh GR. Now, I love the Ricoh GR for the compactness. Quite frankly it is perfect for carrying everywhere. But like my sister, I tend to use my iPhone for snapshots these days as it's so much easier to place on all my websites, Facebook, Flickr and such. I know the quality isn't as good coming from the iPhone, but the convenience factor is. I am trying to simplify my life with less gear so as to get what gear I have left my full attention ins getting to know that system. So far, Fuji is winning out. I honestly was checking out the Sony A7 series, but because the colors of the files do not compare to this of the Fuji, which I find much more appealing, I went for the Fuji. I also like the Fuji company in how they support the photographers and listen to them. Fuji has better customer service and their lenses are divine. I like APS-C as the files are big enough for me. Now do you see the fix I'm in? Makes sense right?
These files below are from my Fuji X-T10 and 35mm F/2 WR Lens. What do you think? Do you think they are worthy shots compared to Sigma DP Merrill? Yeah, I know the Merrill would show more detail, but the shots below seem to be awesome in detail as well, though not "Sigma DP Merrill" awesome. The compromise for better camera user experience, lens changing & ability to shoot in very low light are worth that compromise for many applications. Yes?
The shots below are from the Sigma DP3M. I like the Fuji colors slightly better, but that's me. The detail on the Foveon files are much better than Fuji, but I don't think most people would notice this. The only time I think it would be an issue is in landscape photography where files are blown up to huge poster sizes. What do you guys think?
Lastly, the Ricoh GR shots below.
The Ricoh GR has no viewfinder, which I'm finding I need in my later years. I tried the external optical and just couldn't get used to it. The Ricoh has kind of a slow AF at times, especially in lowlight. I find it hunting a bit. Still, it has one of the sharpest 28mm equivalent lenses I know of. Nothing is as sharp except maybe the 28mm Leica Summicron.
...lastly the Canon S95, which the iPhone can almost replace in many ways.
Here are some shots below using the Canon S95
So now I have to think long and hard. I kind of like the variety of gear, but long for a simpler solution.
