I’ve been thinking about an upgrade from my K5 and I think I’ve found it. The Fuji X-H1. 24Mp, 5 axis IBIS, weather sealing and a great looking grip (especially so for a Fuji) top display, etc. The only fly in the ointment is the eye watering cost of Fuji Lenses. :( Even the kit lens is £500. There is an adapter to use my existing Pentax lenses but only of course in fully manual mode.

Yeah I think Fuji is in the market Pentax should ahve been in. Olympus too, but I think Fuji has really nailed that slr/rangefinder in a modern package feel the best.

All those things that were once Pentax only type strengths, such as weather sealing and sensor stabilisation etc are now found on many other brands. Plus it can do video better than 2012 spec :chin:

And I love their take on the top screen. Modern but functional, and doesn't look like a 1980s calculator screen.

I’ve pulled the trigger on one of these. At just under £700 it was too much of a temptation. Also bought an 18-55mm to go with it as it was affordable and gets good reviews. Next up is a X-K adapter.
