    Hello from just outside Boston, MA (Arlington, to be exact.) I would consider myself an advanced amateur, and mostly shoot lifestyle-type stuff (my kids, my family, vacations, etc.) I've done a little bit of professional work... a couple weddings nearly 10 years ago, and occasional stuff for work as well as a church where I'm also the music director.

    I've dabbled in Fuji for a few years with an X100T and it's almost always been my favorite of my cameras. I shot Nikon most of my life, and up until recently my baby has been my old Nikon D3 which is bullet-proof and reliable (along with a nice 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8, and 50 1.8). I just got an X-T3 and the 18-55 lens and love it so far. The camera is definitely a bit more complex than I expected but that's a good thing, in my opinion.

    I was very close to buying a Sony A7iii instead after using one for a week on vacation, but it was actually Fuji's lens selection that made me stay Fuji.

    I also still shoot a fair amount of film. My favorite film cameras are my trusty pair of Minolta X-700's, my Leica M2, and a Canon AE-1P.

    I do free-lensing on occasion with an old Canon 5D classic.

    Glad to be part of this forum and can't wait to learn.
    Dave

    Welcome Dave!
    A great start kit you've got there.
    I still shoot canon, nikon & BW film, too. We are all learning here and I believe we would/should never stop.
    Show us some of your work.

    Happy shooting.

    P.S. I've heard that the X-T3 Silver takes better picture than the black one. ;)

    Well then, I’m in luck! I happened to pick up the silver one! I went it to the local camera store hoping to buy the black one but they only had the silver in stock, and I’m glad I got that one. It looks great, and matches my X100T!
