Fuji X-T1 Replaces Nikon D800

I recently decided that I wanted a smaller lightweight camera system. I ride motorcycles a fair bit and like to take my camera gear with me. The D800 and associated high quality Nikon lenses are fantastic but they are heavy and take up a lot of space in a bike pannier.
About 18 months ago I bought a Fuji X-E1 and although I was fond of the images it could produce and the small physical size it let me down in many situations due to its slow handling and average EVF so I sold it on.
Recently I went to try the Sony A7 but again wasn't impressed by the "slow" handling of the camera. While in the store I picked up the X-T1 and instantly bonded with it. I now have the X-T1, 18-55mm, 10-24mm and 56mm f1.2 lenses and they really are amazing. The Nikon gear is being sold off as I write this.

Grab shot with the new 56mm f1.2 while walking back to my office after purchasing the lens a few moments before.
