Switching to Fuji?

I’m considering trading in my Nikon gear for a move to Fuji.

Here’s the possible conversion I’m considering:

Nikon gear Fuji gear
Nikon D5500 Fuji X-T20
Tokina 11-20 f2.8 Fuji 10-24 f4
Nikon AF-P 18-55 f3.5-5.6 Fuji 18-55 f2.8-4
Nikon 50mm f1.8G Fuji 23mm f2

Is it worth it? Please comment below!

Photography showcase – Venice

Venice is beautiful at any time of year, but the light can be particularly beautiful in winter and, if you’re very lucky, you can get some magnificent sunrises and sunsets.

Trip report – the Balkans

I spent three weeks travelling in the Balkans region of Europe this summer. The trip took in eight countries – Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo and Greece. It was a whistle-stop tour of the region, and as such my conclusions on Romania and Greece (from this trip), if not the other countries, are tentative. In fact, the main countries that I felt I actually got somewhere near to grips with were Serbia, Bosnia and Albania. Of course Romania and Greece aren’t technically in the Balkans, while Slovenia and Macedonia are, but unfortunately I didn’t have time to visit those. Next time!

Travel itinerary – Three weeks in the Balkans

This is my itinerary for three weeks journeying through the Balkans, more specifically visiting the eight countries of: Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo and Greece. OK, so two of those countries aren’t technically in the Balkans, and could have been replaced with Slovenia and Macedonia. However, flying into Romania made logistical sense while Greece was a nice beach destination to end the trip with.

AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Review (vs AF Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 PRO DX)

Background

I bought my first wide angle lens about six months ago – the Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 – and took it with me on a trip to Jordan. You can see the results here – all images were either taken with the Tokina or the superb Nikon AF-P 18-55. Just as this trip was ending, the Nikon 10-20 was announced. I was immediately interested – not only was this lens cheaper, it was also lighter which, as a travel photographer, appealed. Today the lens arrived and I’ve had a chance to test it out versus the Tokina in a variety of conditions.

AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR vs AF Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 PRO DX – which one to get?

As a new convert to wide angle lenses, I was very interested to hear about Nikon’s latest wide angle lens, a direct challenge to my recently bought (though potentially still returnable) Tokina 11-20 f/2.8. How do the two lenses compare?
