These are pretty affordable lens prices, guys. I don't know why you're complaining. Compare it to Sony's higher end lenses and these are very affordable. The Medium Format lenses are also decently priced for the format, even compared to Pentax's 645 line up.

The 60mm seems to be a good deal; it typically hovers around $599. I think I may bite.

Although Amazon currently lists it at $399 as well, the 3 camels state the lowest it's been was $446 with an average cost of $555.26. A savings of $156.26 is most certainly a slick deal! I could do without the excess garbage but the lens cap tether is an added bonus for sure!

Well composed and edited photos are going to get you the most mileage if you're looking for "good photos". Experience is cheap, but you pay for it with your investment of time. Basically, go out and practice, and pour over photos of others to get yourself in

Having said that, you'd probably want to move into something like a XT-30 or Sony a6400. Keep in mind that you're really buying into the lens system. Personally I would bet on Fuji over the Sony in the long run in the APSC sensor size category.

Otherwise, you could consider s full frame system. The Nikon D750 is a classic and pretty affordable, but due for an update soon. You could look for a Sony a7ii or a7iii (depending on your budget) if you prefer to stick with mirrorless. The Nikon opens up a lot of lens possibilities with the F mount and lots of excellent 3rd party lenses. Sony is always pushing the envelope and is clearly in the game for the long haul.

You are looking at the medium format lenses. The XF lenses are very affordable for what your getting. Much better than what you get in a Sony at this price.

Yea I've learned that. Lol my pics were average at best and now I have took time to really practice. And my pics are actually professional looking now. I've went from a couple great pics to taking 200 photos and 150-180 of them looking good with good quality colors n tones. I like what the a7ii and the a7iii but the lenses are expensive. I guess I'm just used to being spoiled with mft. Because most mft lenses are 500 or less except my 12-35 2.8 which was 900 when I bought it 4 years ago.

By professional I just mean has the qualities like good low light performance and can shoot good photos all the time. Which I know kinda is more or less based off how well you know how to shoot. I love the gh4 it gets quality pro level photos. I just want something else lol. That can get better quality and higher megapixels because the gh4 is at 16 megapixels . And I want something above 20.

So if you had to rank them in order from this is the one to only get this one if you can only afford this? from the xt-30. A6400, a7ii and I, D750 or any other camera that you would say performs well at wedding or other pro level events. Which would you buy in order?

Got it. I shot M43 for a while. I love the system, but there were just limitations that I didn't want to deal with. Particularly with action and indoor sporting events.

In order: D750, Canon 6Dii, XT-30, a6400, a7ii (it's a good value, but the a7iii is really, really good...)

I think Fuji offers a similar value proposition when it comes to lens costs. Not quite as good as m43, but better than many FF cameras.

I'd highly recommend doing a little research on lenses for the various mounts, and then head over to eBay to get an idea of what the used costs are. If you're not adverse to buying used, you can find some decent deals on used lenses.

Native mount manufacturer built lenses if bought on sale can be sold for very little depreciation if you take care good care of it(not including kit lenses). I already wish I had got the 56mm in the last sale. Will have buy used or gray market if I need it now. I've been monitoring prices and the 60mm, 23mm 1.4 and 55-200mm are good deals for the X mount. Other retailers such as bhphotovideo etc. are also matching these prices. I ordered some off photosavings with their 10% off email signup code but they don't have a lot of stock as they are a small outfit though they are a Fuji authorised dealer.
