I am moving away from Canon who I have been using since going digital.
I have decided rightly or wrongly to go with the Fuji X-T1 with the 18-135mm lens. The Fuji body and lens weigh about the same as the Canon 5DII body on its own without a lens. The 18-135mm lens was the deciding factor in the end, it has an 35mm equivalent zoom range of 28-200mm. With the Canon gear I use, I have a 24-105mm lens and take a large number of shots at 105mm.
My feeling is that I would have used focal lengths beyond 105mm if they were available in one zoom lens. I own a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS lens, a superb lens but very big and bulky and most important heavy.
So my current thinking on a general standard camera bag contents is the Fuji X-T1 with 18-135mm lens (28-200mm in real terms!) and my Canon 5DII with a Sigma 12-24mm zoom.
I can always can always put Canon 100-400 lens in the car if the need arises.

The new camera and lens should arrive tomorrow morning in time for me to charge the battery and use it in North Devon tomorrow afternoon!
