5D(c) with ze35/2, ze50/1,4, Tamron 90mm 2.8, 135L.


Love the 35mm focal length (and my 35/2) but may consider selling the 35 to replace it with the x100s for easy travel and pick up a ze25/2 or the canon 24/3.5 to get put some distance between the 35mm and the 50mm.

Or maybe a 21/2.8 (or oly 21/2 or ze18/3.5) and/or explore other options for the 85/90mm focal length?

It's fun to think about even though I know I'll most likely stay with my current kit.

Since my gear is now film, that makes it ALT!!

Nikon FM2
24mm f/2.0 AIS
50mm f/1.2 AIS
55mm F/2.8 micro AIS
85mm f/2.0 AIS

I need to add a second body so that I can be more flexible on ISO/Color. Either a second FM2 or perhaps a FE2. For lenses, I think I'm good.

All digital gear is being sold off: Canon Rebel XT (), 85mm f/1.2 II L, 20mm f.28, 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, 100 mm Macro L, 300mm f/4 L, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon 24mm f/1.4, Nikon 35mm f/1.8, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8.

i had this period during winter and spring when I lost inspiration for photography. I sold a lot of stuff including the Olympus E-M5 and all micro 4/3 lenses. Then I sold a remaining older camera and a couple of lenses. Then i did nothing until some time ago when i bought the RX1. I'm slowly starting having fun again with the camera.

Current gear for use:
Sony RX1, somewhat pimped so it is more a tool than a toy
Velbon CF legs with an Arca-Swiss p0 head

In a drawer, for no rational reason, not sold yet:
Leica Elmarit 60/2.8 Macro
Olympus OM 24/2.8
Olympus OM 50/2.0 Macro
Leica Telyt 180/3.4
Pentax SMC-P FA31/1.8 Ltd

Yes, I should keep on downsizing.

In the future I want to (obviously) reduce to one Pentax body (preferably full-frame, but possibly just the K-3 or whatever major APS-C body is next). If Pentax brings out a high-quality FF I might sell off my Nikon kit, but there's something amazing about the D700 that tells me I'll probably never sell it.

I'm not sure my m43 kit will hang on, honestly, though I love some of the lenses. I'm also thinking about ditching the RX100 in favor of the GR. If I do that, I'll probably sell something to fund a Sigma 18-35/1.8 for the Pentax kit.

I'm pretty hopeless in general.

I'll play along.

Canon 5D MkII
- Tamron 28-70/2.8
- Canon 70-300 IS
- OM Zuiko 18mm (trying to sell it, too wide for my taste)
- OM Zuiko 24/2 (if I manage to sell the OM 18, I may sell this one too and get a TS lens)
- Leica Summicron-R 35/2 (thinking of selling it to get a 35/2.8)
- Sigma 50/1.4

I'm constantly struggling with the tought of selling all the Canon equipment. I might do it if a new generation of the Fuji X-Pro satisfies me. Then I may use the Fuji with a speedbooster to satisfy my "fullframe look" needs.


On the compact segment:
- Fujifilm X100
- Nikon V1 + 10-30mm VR

I'm pretty satisfied in this regard, one camera complements the other and both are fun for everyday use. But I admit that sometimes I play with the idea of selling both to get the Fuji X100s and/or the Sony RX100 II.

Running two systems, here's my current gear:

Micro 4/3
Bodies:
Olympus OM-D E-M5
Panasonic GX1

Lenses:
Panasonic 8mm fisheye
Panasonic 7-14mm
Olympus 9-18mm
Olympus 14-42mm II R
Panasonic 14mm f/2.5
Sigma 19mm f/2.8

Lenses:
Fuji 14mm f/2.8
Fuji 35mm f/1.4
Fuji 60mm f/2.4 Macro
Zeiss 90mm f/2.8 Sonnar (Contax G)

Lenses I adapt to both systems

Canon FD 50mm f/1.8
Canon FD 50mm f/1.4
Canon FD 135mm f/2
Canon FD 70-210mm f/4

Konica Hexanon 50mm f/1.7
Konica Hexanon 57mm f/1.2
Olympus OM 50mm f/3.5 Macro
Olympus OM 200mm f/4

Future plans
I'll be selling a lot of the above over the next little while and not buying a lot to replace it...major gear reduction. The Panasonic 7-14mm will be sold, as will likely the Sigma 19mm and possibly the 45/1.8, but I haven't decided on that one yet. I may end up keeping the Sigma just because I don't think it'll bring much money to be worth selling it. Of my alt lenses, I'll be selling the Rokkor 50/1.4 and 135/2.8, my Hexanon 40/1.8 and 50/1.7, my Oly 50/3.5 Macro and 200/4 and my FD 50/1.8 for sure. I may sell my FD 200/2.8, but I haven't decided yet. I just need to get around to placing them up for sale and taking the pictures.

I don't have a lot of purchase plans, though. I might get the Fuji 55-200, but I'll know more about that as I have a review sample coming next week, so I'll do a hands on deciding there. When the Panasonic 150mm f/2.8 comes out, I may hop on that, but I'm not sure yet. About the only lens I KNOW I'll be getting is the Fuji 56mm f/1.2, which I will probably pre-order. I will likely sell the Fuji 60mm when that comes in.

Oh, and not really a purchase, but I plan on getting my Panasonic GX1 converted for IR sometime soon, so that'll be cool.

Given I sold off the vast majority of my kit over the last year, my setup is pretty simple right now.

Bodies:

OM-D
Bessa R

m43 lenses:
m.Zuiko 12-50
Leica Summilux-DG 25/1.4

LTM lenses:
CV 35/2.5 Color-Skopar
Nikkor-S.C 5cm f1.4

Plans:

Short-term:
Oly 9-18
Panny 14
Oly 60 Macro
Oly 40-150

Long-term:
Oly 17/1.8
Second m43 body (likely the OM-D 'Pro')
MMF-3
Oly 50-200 SWD
Oly 14-54 Mk.II
Oly 11-22
M film body, Zeiss Ikon or M6
M/LTM 28mm lens, Probably CV 28/3.5, maybe ZM 28/2.8
M/LTM 75mm lens, Probably CV 75/1.8, maybe CV 75/2.5
M/LTM modern 50mm lens, Probably ZM 50/2, maybe CV 50/1.5
M/LTM fast 35mm lens, Probably CV 35/1.4, maybe CV 35/1.23
Panny 35-100
Oly 12-??/2.8 (if ever announced)

The latter are pretty much in order of planned acquisition (and yes, I do plan to acquire some 4/3rds glass for my m43 system)

wow, I'm almost embarrassed to even list mine here since there is so little compared to you guys:

Current:
NEX-6
35/1.4 Contax
90/2.5 Tokina
Grandfathers old Praktiflex FX (very old/beat up)
58mm F1.9 Meyer Gorlitz Primoplan (very old/beat up)

Future:
-FF NEX if it ever comes
- something wide/ultra-wide that takes filters... will see how FF NEX plays with RF glass before deciding
- 180mm 2.8 ED AiS
- Old FD or AiS super tele
- maybe a native AF lens for FF NEX - a "normal" pancake or near pancake would be ideal
- astrophotography gear (tracking mount and a body with a modified IR filter or a dedicated cooled astro camera with
narrow bandpass/IR filter rig)

Obviously got a lot of saving up to do

Edit: Forgot to mention the "for sales":

G 28mm f2.8 Biogon mint
G 45/2 Planar with minor coating marks
thought I'd mention them... for reasons

Wow.

My gear:

Leica M8
28mm Summicron ASPH
50mm Summilux ASPH

Future Gear:
Leica M240
18mm ASPH or 21mm 3.4 ASPH
90mm Maco Elmar


That's it. Serious GAS in this thread...

wow, I'm almost embarrassed to even list mine here since there is so little compared to you guys:



Shed loads of gear has absolutely nothing to do with photography.

jcolwell, when my wife complains about the amount and cost of my considerable gear pile, I can now just show her yours and say "Hey, it could be a LOT worse." Wow.


Maybe Bif will chime in, and then I'll feel a lot better.

Well, it certainly has quite a lot to do with photography, since it's all photography gear. But it has absolutely nothing to do with how good you are as a photographer.

If I had to, I could cut my gear to my OM-D, 9-18, 25/1.4, 60/2.8 and 35-100 and it would fill about 90% of my shooting needs, and I'd work around that other 10%. Or, I could live fine on my Fuji X four lens setup right now for most of my stuff (though if I went all Fuji, I'd probably pick up the 55-200 to fill the long end needs).

The rest is special case stuff or things that just make getting a certain look easier (like shallow DOF, or a little extra speed, or an extra-wide view, or super telephoto stuff, which I don't shoot that often, but I certainly do shoot).

I do have too much gear right now, but I'm going to be selling most of my manual focus glass, keeping only my Rokinon 85/1.4, FD 50-300L, 135/2 and maybe (but probably not) my 200/2.8 of the lenses I actually paid any real money for. I'm also keeping my FD 50/1.4 (got it for under $50 because it was jammed...fixed it myself...not really worth it to sell), Hexanon 57/1.2 (gives a great look and I got the lens for FREE, so I have no money invested in it), FD 70-210 f/4 - got this for free from my Dad's old kit.

Hehe. I have a lot of lenses, and you have more, but not exceptionally more...but the average cost of your lenses is about 4-5x the average cost of my lenses, so, um, yeah...
