San Diego Comic Con has come and gone once again. Although we are sad to see it go, I was able to come home with a ton of good memories and a lot more fun photographs from the week. While I normally bring my trusty Olympus OMD and a plethora of light weight, high quality micro four thirds lenses, I decided to change things up and take both the Sony Alpha A7II and the Fuji X-T1. I discuss my experience using a different system and my apprehension about moving outside what is tried and true platform. Needless to say, my worries were for naught and I came home with some images I am very happy with. Below are all my favorite SDCC photographs taken with the Sony Alpha A7II .

Like my brothers, I am a gear head. Any opportunity I have to try new camera equipment, I jump on it like bees to a hive. Not too long ago, a friend offered me deal on an amazing mirrorless camera from FujiFilm, the X-T1. He had recently joined the Leica Owners' Club and no longer needed this retro-modern looking body. Initially I was hesitant, but couldn't resist the lens adapter package he threw in. Maybe one day he'll let me mess around with his 35mm Summicron.
I spent a majority of the winter holiday immersing myself with the X-T1 and found the camera extremely fun to use. Fuji is known to have spectacular JPEGs and I decided to put it to the test. You can read more about my findings below.
Update: Since writing this post, I have added the Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 lens to the arsenal and will eventually report my findings about this well received prime lens.
