I like the Jpeg better. I'm such an amateur
You are being sarcastic. But using JPEG is convenient. When I was using the K200D, I was shooting JPEGs, until I realized that I could tune the exposure to exactly when I wanted from the RAW without inducing JPEG artifacts.
After shooting only Raws for years, I now sometimes shoot JPEG, it's so relaxing, but of course once done, that pretty much game over in terms of tuning the image, there is only 8 bits in JPEGs.
I think, Fuji are and are going to be even more popular, because their MILC basically replace former P&S compact cameras, but with better IQ.

There is of course always the effect of joy when buying and discovering a new camera. After 6 months of use, whether you bought a new camera or not makes not difference.

I just purchased a used Fuji X-T1 and Fuji 27mm 2.8 pancake lens as a complement to my Pentax K-3 camera. Total cost $825. I'm hoping to use this as a quick street camera/vacation package that will compliment my K-3 along with my DA 14, FA 31, DA*50-135, FA 100 2.8 and F*300 stable of lenses.

Are there others that shoot both Fuji an Pentax together? How do you like this combination? I'm due to receive the camera and lens sometime late next week so I don't have any first hand knowledge as of yet.
Would you mind letting me know where you found this set-up for $825?
I was thinking about doing the exact same but lowest price I can find is $1200!

I am looking at new~

I didn't buy new. I bought used in excellent like new condition on eBay. Camera was $550 and the lens was $275. I've had both for over a month now and have since purchased a Fuji 14mm lens for $425 and a 90mm for $830. The 90mm was a new open box with warranty from Samys Camera.
