Equipment Check!
(this is the alt GEAR forum)


Bodies Now:
OM-D
E-PL5
EOS-M

Lenses Now:
PL25mm F1.4
Oly 60mm F2.8 Macro
Olympus 14-42mm II R
Canon 22mm F2
Olympus 40-150mm mFT

Considering for Future:
E-P5 + VF4 + 17mm F1.8 kit
X-M1 + 16-50mm kit
* Some sort of UWA lens solution


I recently sold off all my NEX gear and consolidated a bunch.

Thinking about returning my E-PL5 and EOS-M to take advantage of the E-P5 kit deal they're running right now with the VF-4 and Oly 17mm F1.8. I would simplify my life of course through much fewer batteries and chargers since the OM-D and E-P5 share batteries. I would also be back onto just a single mount as well as gain superior IBIS and overcome the E-PL5's critical flaw, a low resolution screen with very limited framing real estate...

However, I'm not sure if the Olympus 17mm F1.8 is as good as the Canon 22mm. The Canon 11-22mm UWA zoom also looks very small and very good since Canon says it's superior to their well regarded Canon 10-22mm. The EOS-M's shot to shot blackout, big AF boxes, and lack of flip screen is driving me nuts though.

The Fuji solution however is also very tempting. They have an incredible line up of primes and the new kit zoom samples look very solid especially at 24mm wide. The body in silver with brown leather is also super attractive although not out till September. My only concern is no EVF option (don't want the size and no flip screen on the E1) and not getting the most you can get out of the files in ACR.

I have zero interest in the FF nex solution. I almost died in Costa Rica on some rocks carrying full frame gear, tripod, and lenses, not doing that again.

What are you guys planning?

M9 + ZM 50/2, 50/1.5, 35/2, 35/2.8; Leica ASPH 28/2.8; CV 40/1.4 MC.

NEX-5R: primarily for video along with one of the lenses on top. C/Y 85/1.4 for longer distances.

Forgot about my m42 Takumar SMCs 55/1.8 and 50/1.4: to be mounted to NEX-5R.

OM 55/1.2 for sale (when I get around to post it!)

Nex-5n, 6, and 7, with 16/2.8, 18-55, 30/3.5, 35/1.8, 55-210 native lenses. The 5N is a backup, the 6 is my wife's and occasionally my second body on excursions, 7 is my main body.
Touit: 12/2.8
G: 90
M: CV15, 21SEM, 28/2.8 ASPH, CV35/1.2, ZM50/2, 135/4
F: ZF 100/2, CV 180/4
R (with SB): 35/2, 60/2.8

I just sold my ZA 24/2, so I have an LA-EA2 with no lenses for it. Might sell that too. On the fence about the ZF100/2. Great lens, but too big.

Waiting to hear about the Nex-FF. If it happens, I will likely sell the R35/2, and consider upgrading the 28/2.8 ASPH to the 28 Cron, though the 35 Lux is also attractive. Might also get an M 50 Cron or Lux, because the ZM50 has flare issues.

I'm not planning anything, I'm happy with what I have
an x100s for everyday use and an xpro1 with the 18 and the 35 for when I need a little wider or longer.
For my holidays in Greece I'm taking just the x100s and I added a pocketable lumix which is waterproof to 3m, I didnt look at any other specs. $150 on special.

Have all of this...

D800, 28/1.8G, 50/1.4G, 85/1.8G, 24-120
RX1
RX100 (may sell and buy MII)
Nikon V1, 10-30 kit zoom (wife's)
Oly OM-D x2, 12/2, 17/1.8, 25/1.4, 45/1.8, 60/2.8, 75/1.8, 7-14, 12-35, 14-150, 35-100, 45-175, 7.5FE
Leica Summicron R 50/2 with Leitax mount for Nikon
OM 21/3.5
Voigtlander 40/2 (Canon mount, from old 5D2 kit, selling some day)

Plans...

Selling off some m4/3 lenses (12/2, 17/1.8, 14-150, 45-175, maybe 45/1.8) due to redundancy after recent acquisitions
Selling Voigtlander 40/2
Keeping m4/3 as system camera, and for some travel
Don't need RX1 but a great travel solution with RX100, and the IQ is just astounding, often prefer the output to D800
Keeping RX100, what I carry in my work bag all the time and when I don't want to annoy others with a ton of photo stuff, and it consistently impresses IQ-wise, love the fill flash on it
D800 and just a few lenses for pics of my kids and their cousins and friends (CDAF AF tracking just doesn't cut it) and for serious photography. Also camera I grab for photos around the house since i don't have to lug it far.

Want to rationalize the whole kit a little bit, perhaps to RX100, OM-D and D800. But I enjoy the RX1 so will likely keep.

If I kept just one camera, it would be the OM-D.

I could also shoot with just an X100s or OM-D with 17/1.8 or D800 and Sigma 35/1.4 or RX1 and be happy (fast 35mm or 40 equivalent).

Hopes...

Nex FF is great, and that PDAF on sensor closes the gap a lot on AF tracking, in which case the D800 would go and be replaced by Nex FF and/or Oly OM-D successor with better AF tracking.

Glad you didn't die.

I'm planing my core set of lenses on a FF EVIL that can mount M & SLR glass.
I'm not using my EF gear hardly at all, so its days are numbered, but have been holding onto them because I keep toying with the idea of going pro, but I don't want to turn what I love into work, but if the NEX FF ticks all the boxes, I could possibly get by with just that.
Manual focus will continue to be my focus, but I may buy one or two AF lenses if the AF gets close to my 1DIII, and that WILL spell the end of my DSLR days.

I've been paring down my Alt stuff -- for non-EF mount, I'm down to just the Leica R 60 macro and Contax C/Y 50/1.4 for my "quality Alt", having divested my ZE and several "R" lenses. The whole RB67 system will be on the chopping block soon, as will some of the FD lenses, like the 85-300.

We're just starting. lol
Seriously, I just wanted a small set of lenses from the OEM's to see how different their design philosophies differ, plus mixing and matching was/is great fun, one trio I used lots was:
Nikkor 24/2.8, Rokkor 58/1.2, and Super-Tak 85/1.9 if nailing focus was easier with my 1DIII I wouldn't have bought my NEX, and would have waited for a FF mirrorless.
