I spent many years building up a collection of DSLR gear but some time ago I switched to a mirrorless setup with a Fujifilm X100T but after wanting some zoom sold that and went with a Fujifilm X-T1 which I enjoy very much. To date I have resisted picking up additional lenses, but I’m not sure how much longer that will last.
