As the title states, what is new in your bag for 2014?

I changed much more than I expected

Cameras
-------------------
- D600 earned its spot as my primary camera (D3 as backup)
- Selling my D800 bodies
- Plan on carrying an rx1 and an a7 (w/55mm) as second bodies/backups

Accessories
------------------
- All manual Godox flashes (Cheetah), both the 850 speedlight and the bare bulbs
- Sold all of my nikon flashes
- May swap my 24mm 1.4 for a 24-70 2.8 since I am transitioning to a few primary gigs. (consistency)


Edit- Might get some new clothes too.

I suspect that by 2015 or 2016 we'll have a full featured and full frame mirrorless system. When we do, we'll make the switch. Until then, we'll probably keep things pretty low key with purchasing.

We switched to d4 bodies because nothing else had the AF performance we needed. Also switched to 24-120s because we're cool.

Layman's explanation as to why this would be a good upgrade?

Smaller, lighter, less mirror slap, quieter, and less AF calibration issues. Chimping in the viewfinder can also be nice. You loose some of the magic of an optical finder, but if your goal is to consistently get the job done, they have some potential benefits.

Shooting Oly M4/3 along side my D3s setup. More and more of the limitations are being ironed out, so I'm getting more comfortable with the idea of going mirrorless.

I brought my Sony RX1 to one wedding this year so far. I think its a little slow to use, but I might use it from time to time this year because the IQ is awesome.

I am in love with that lens. It is a shame they did not simply make an FE version of it for the A7/A7r

Agree. I'm thinking they'll make a 35 1.8 at some point. I'm really really hoping for some zeiss primes (24 f/2, 35 f/1.8, 85 f/1.8).
