10 Reasons to Sell your M240 and buy a FujiFilm X100T

Fuji X100T

Today The Street Shooter wrote about his decision to switch to the Fujifilm X100T from his Leica M240/35mm Summicron kit.

His 10 Reasons for Switching:

  1. His Review of The X100T
  2. Manual Focus Isn’t a Big Deal
  3. The Size of The X100T
  4. Peace of mind
  5. It’s Quite
  6. Built in Flash
  7. Flash Sync at Any Speed
  8. The Hybrid View Finder
  9. The APS-C Look
  10. Fuji Color and X-Tran

You can read the full article here if you want to dive into his reasons, but in my experience as a Leica owner there are more rational reasons to switch away from M temporarily between releases that he probably isn’t admitting to his readers or maybe even himself. For one, it’s highly likely that a new M will be released around photokina so now is an ideal time to thoroughly test a new camera system if you’re considering switching to maximize your trade in/resale, selling a M at the right time can save anywhere between $1k too $2k, which kind of makes the X100T free if he did well selling. The M240 is still a capable camera, but it’s ISO and flash performance aren’t anywhere near a modern Fujifilm camera. I look forward to his why I switched back article after photokina, unless the new M disappoints.
