A basic recommendation list

If you’re new to Fuji or you want to upgrade your gear, there are different camera/lens combinations that may work for depending on your photography preferences and your budget. The different recommended prime lenses are there to complement each other, whereas the zoom lenses (1 or 2) generally cover the whole range needed.

For a basic camera comparison on the current top models, have a look at my feature comparison page.
