->> Of coarse so far I disagree for some thing. I am working on a personal project in New Orleans mostly shot with Leica but recently I have needed af more and more and walking around with the sony 7 r k11 with a 25 f2 basis the 35 distagon 1,4 and the 55 1.8 with the 7 r k11 and a sony 7s is so much easier then with a canon 5d mk 111 and similar fast or faster glass which you need as nothing touches the 7s for low light. My shoulder age 58 is much happier then with the canon stuff. I still use canon for sports. But when I need prime lens af I have gone to sony. Fuji has a nice system but not as good for low light as sony and it seems as a friend told me and digilloyd has not confirmed they have a green bias to there files.

->> The Sony cameras are pretty nice. I use an A6000 for sports, a7s for video and A7RII for portraits and crowd shots. The A7Rii with the Metabones IV adapter and Canon L glass is a nice combo.

@David
I have found Fujis work well in lowlight (as with all cameras there are limitations). However, the new XPro2 is phenomenal in low light.

->> David- With the Xpro2, I've gotten nice files at 12800, but have not tried 25600 yet, primarily because in the lowlight the situations, I found that 6400 and fast glass is more than adequate. But I've also been surprised in some lowlight situations. how high the shutter speed (as I like to shoot Av with the Fujis).

Also, worth considering, is that, as best I can tell, Fuji has a bit wider array of faster glass (16mm f/1.4, 23mm f/1.4, 35 f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2).
