Panasonic DC-FZ80K Final Thoughts

"Love this guy."

It is light and easy to carry with you. Only gripes are slow focus and short battery life. Mirrorless has come into it's own. The Panasonic DC-FZ80K was with me at all times. I will be upgrading to a better lens when finances allow.

"I'm a bonehead."

The Fujifilm is an awesome camera as most already know. Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with. So having a backup battery is what I would consider a must. Overall, its a great deal, with the body and lenses alone. I have used the camera for some time now.

Fujifilm X-T30 Body Black Final Thoughts

"That is fine for me."

Camera takes beautiful pictures. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. And, the EVF stayed in my bag nearly the entire trip. Since this is a new camera not all Fujifilm accessories will work. Mirrorless has come into it's own.
