Pretty much using my X-E1 and RX1 for everything these days and enjoying them both a lot. I haven't been able to convince myself to pull the trigger on selling my DSLR yet, but it's tempting.


It seems like we're in exactly the same situation. I have sold all DSLR gear except 5D and two lenses though and the rest will go as soon as I find the time and energy.

I'm only using the RX100 and thinking of selling off a lot of Nikon stuff. I haven't been interested in shooting at all for a while, but when that inevitable FF mirrorless shows up I might be on it again.

Until then, I'll just buy more bicycles!

Current gear:
NEX-6
Lens Turbo
Nikon 35/2 AIS
Nikon 50/1.4 AIS
Nikon 300/4.5 EDIF AIS
Nikon TC14
Fujian 35/1.7 CCTV lens
3X Nikon FE2
2X Konica Big Mini

Future gear:
Sell Lens Turbo and get Speed Booster.
Once I do above, I'll get an F mount wide (14, 15, 18mm)...
OR- forget the above, I may just get the Sony 10-18/4 OSS.
I'll quite possibly pick up a FM3A if i find one cheap in Korea while I'm there.
I'll be shooting a lot more film up there, since it is cheaper to dev/scan.
MIGHT pick up another film M body (M2, Ikon, possibly M4) and a Voigtlander 35/1.4...
MIGHT pick up another D700.

Ok, I'll play. I'm getting tired of GAS and gear lust in general. I've been rationalizing my gear and selling off a lot of gear. Recently, I've nearly sold my entire Hasselblad medium format digital system and most of my Nikkor lenses, but decided to reacquire a Nikkor 85. What I have left are

D800E
85/1.4 G
28/2.8 AIS
NEX-7
Speedbooster
24/1.8
50/1.8
10-18/4 OSS
55-200 OSS (I hardly ever shoot tele so an average one that is superlight is more than adequate)
Hassy 28/4 HCD (on ebay)
Canon EOS M w/ 22mm ($299 was too much a bargain)
Ricoh GR (my current goto camera for street shooting)

Future plans:

Buy either NEX-7 update or FF NEX. During this process, I realize that even though I have migrated my use to mostly mirrorless, none of these mirrorless can fully replace a DSLR yet so I will keep my D800 w/ 85mm till I feel FF NEX is ready to replace it. The D800 w/ 85 will be around for when I want to shoot people. I will keep an APS-C NEX, even when FF comes to NEX, simply because I don't believe FF NEX lenses will be small, and for more than 50% of my shooting, I don't need the narrow depth of field.

For FF NEX, I would like to see an 85/2 and 28/2. Since acquiring the GR, I have changed my preference for 35mm to 28mm.

Yup, as a matter of fact seeing the impressive work you've been producing with the mirrorless gear has been a major motivator behind my selling off my DSLR. The main issue I still have is subject matter for the moving kids I tend to photograph a lot lately, I will miss my Nikon's continuous AF and tracking.

I'm currently debating trading up the 28/2.8 Elmarit ASPH, CV 35/1.2, and Summicron-R 35 for a Summilux-M 35 ASPH. But dang, I had $3k in my head as the price, the FLE ones are still $4k used. Ouch.

Like some here, I also have way too much stuff.

Canon bodies:
5D (dont want to sell, too cheap now, useful as second body)
5D2
7D (mainly for airshows)

Fuji:
X100 one of my most fun cameras for the family
XE-1

Lenses:

Canon
40mm STM (I like pancakes)
100mm f2.0
400mm f5.6L
70-200 F4.0L (my oldest lens, got this one waay back when shooting EOS3's)
70-300 F4-5.6L IS (bought cheap cos it has a few small marks on the front element, fun to use at airshow when close to the airstrip)

Zeiss
21mm ZE
25mm f2.8 ZF.1
35mm f2.0 ZE
50mm f1.4 ZE
50mm f2.0 ZE
100MM f2.0 ZE

Voigtlander
90mm f3.5 Apo-Lanthar (cos they were being sold off cheap due to being discontinued)

Leica R
180mm f3.4 Apo-Telyt
35-70 f4.0

Sigma
35mm f1.4 A

Mamiya (on Mirex)
55mm N
80mm C
120mm f4 A Macro (80mm, 120mm + mamiya 1000S bought in local store for 199 :-)

Olympus

35mm f2.8 PC (Multi-Coated version)

Fuji

18-55
14mm

Can you see a theme, I can't resist a bargain :-)

As for the Zeiss 35 and Sigma 35, only one will survive long term, same for the Zeiss 50's.

Long term I'd love a Canon 24mm TS-E II, I walk around london a lot and shoot a fair amount of atchitecture so would be uber cool for that, also maybe a few stich panos.

Will probably pick up a few more AF lenses, my manual focus skills can't keep up with 9 month old daughter.

Current State of Gear:
Sony A99
Nex3
and a pile of old film gear which I'm not even sure if the shutters are calibrated on.

Lenses In use:

Mamiya 645 on chipped mirex:
35mm N
45mm N
55mm N
80mm C Macro
80mm f1.9 N
120mm Macro A N
300mm ULD f5.6 N

Leica R:
28mm f2.8
50mm cron
50mm lux
90mm f2.8
180mm f2.8

Leica M:
(I have it but I haven't used it in anger with the nex since getting it)
35mm f2.8
50mm cron
50mm collapsible f2
50mm collapsible f2.8
90mm f2.8
135mm f4

current plans:

short term: chip the adapted R lenses to enable steady shot
lens purchases: 110mm f2 Hasselblad + Mirex
200mm Mamiya f2.8
another Mirex 645m so I can chip that and handle long lenses as well.
unpressing lens purchases: 14mm ronikon and 24mm tilt shift ronikon

Camera plans: used RX1 when they get cheap enough, converted to wide spectrum with the flash converted to IR.
If someone comes out with a FF mirrorless in a small format with SSS or sensor antishake I'd reevaluate things. Though I won't go back to nex without SSS unless they do something very surprising as my m645 lenses really rule out the whole small camera ideal. I've found that with the choice of fast or tilt I prefer tilt.

I'm in a pretty good state with gear at the moment: not too much, not too little. (Okay, slightly too much.)

Stuff I use regularly:
Sony A850
Samyang 14/2.8
Sigma 35/1.4
Rokkor 58/1.2
Minolta 85/1.4 G
Minolta 100/2.8 Macro
Sony 70-300 G

Nex-5N
CV 15
Sigma 19
Contax G 28
Sony 35/1.8
CV 40/1.4
Contax G 45
Jupiter-3
Leica 60 Macro
Contax G 90

Rolleicord Vb

Pentax 67
55/4
105/2.4

Stuff I should sell: There's a Sony a55 that my wife mostly uses, or when I want some extra telephoto reach. I have a couple of APS-C alpha mount lenses that probably should get sold. There's also a Nikon F3/T that's in great shape with a fantastic Nikkor 105/1.8, but I just don't really care for 35mm film. I have a couple of unadapted Rokkors that I use with the NEX, but they may go.

Stuff I'd like to buy: I'd love to get something around 24-28mm equivalent that's really great across the frame. I have the Sigma 19, which I like but don't love. Thinking about the ZA 24/2, or possibly leitaxing the Contax 28/2.8, but I'd prefer it if it was a solution for my NEX. The only option there that is intriguing is the 18 SEM, but that's more than I want to pay. Sure, I'll look into the FF NEX when it's announced. I'd be interested in the next version of the Ricoh GR or RX1 if either one had a tilt LCD.

John -- You absolutely do not have too much stuff! And -- you are right about the 24 TSE, but you also want the 17 TSE (maybe without knowing it yet!). And I don't see the 50/1.2L on your list. . . just sayin'!

Makten -- Maybe if that second picture was a super-accurate rifle from Sako! Ha-ha!

currently:

x100

mamiya c220 w/ 80 f/2.8

leica m6 w/ 35 f/2

canon, 17-40, 28, 40, 50

i wanna sell the leica rig and get like a used xpro with a 35 (50 equivalent) so i can cover 35-50 with digital rangefinder-esque cameras, and call it a day.

and i'd buy a new 50 for the canon if they updated the p.o.s. 1.4

D600 & D7100, range of lenses from 16mm to 400mm. I could part with the D7100 body. Good body, but I love the D600 IQ.

Still have NEX 5N, and mostly using for a travel/family snaps cam. Kept the ZA24 lens, and use that all the time, right now it has the G90 on it.

Thinking about a RX100 type camera, since I picked up a dirt bike for riding some of the high country and desert this year. Not really sure I want to take the bigger cameras along for those adventures, though at this point the 5N would be the cheapest body (in terms of replacement cost) to pack...

OH, still have my 7D & some teles that I need to get listed and sell!

Hi Michelle,

You should get one of those new Hasselblad cameras based on the RX100. The extra big handle is well suited for bike gloves.

I hear they're "stellar"

It would die of embarassment to be seen with me! I am probably too ghetto to ever even be in the same room as a Stellar, anyway. And that's cool with me!

If we're talking 'non work' as someone else mentioned, my list is:

Currently: Minolta Hi-Matic 7s2 & Ilford HP5.

Future: I'll probably add an RX1, but in no rush, and I'd still likely use the Hi-Matic occasionally.
