I'm selling my 7D and 50D [7D sold]

I don't generally like to sell my gear, maybe because sometimes I get too attached to these objects, maybe because I took so many good pictures with them, I don't really know if there's any logical reason or not, but I have to face that even if I still "love" them,  at the end they are still useful gear that are taking dust on my shelves because I don't use them anymore, and the more I wait, the more their value goes down. And even if part of me still doesn't like the idea, I don't see why I have to keep my old cameras on those shelves, and I better sell them, so at least someone else can use them. So, before putting them on adverts.ie, I wanna see if I can find someone else interested to by my old, but still perfect 7D, and the still good but not perfect 50D.

Fuji X-E1 vs Sony NEX-6 Shootout

I've never been too much attracted by mirrorless cameras, most of them are ok but I personally think they are still too far away from the quality I can get with a proper DSLR, or even just the simplicity of control the camera settings, as I'm always shot in manual mode, so I constantly play with aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and I don't really want to get lost in some silly menus like most of the mirrorless. Ok this video shows up the differences between two of the most popular mirrorless you can find on the market, but what it actually stands out on this video is the image quality of the Fuji X-E1, especially on the dynamic range and high ISO performance. Personally that's the only mirrorless camera I would actually buy, maybe even because I always loved their cameras as my very first prosumer camera was a Fuji S7000, which nowadays it looks way outdated but back in the mid 2000 was an amazing little camera. Anyway, if you are thinking to buy a mirrorless and you are undecided between the Sony NEX-6 or the Fuji X-E1, you should see this video made by Chris Niccolls of The Camera Store.
