Great to see you on the thread Dean I imagine life has been busy or we'd have seen you more often. Life definitely has a way of intruding on pleasure... I'm up at 5 a.m. today, not my regular rising time since I'm not a farmer and don't have a full-time job... but there is work to do at Sue's condo AND I know I have to get my car out of the driveway before 7:30 a.m. or I'll be homebound while the contractor paves my road...

I'm actually selling loads of gear and doing a total re-shuffle and trimming down. I've used everything lately ... M43, Leica, fixed lens film rangefinders, video cameras and the list goes on & on. D800E is going too as it's never used.
I'm most comfortable with Nikon though and I just love my FM2 and want to stay in one system again.
I'm thinking of getting a Df and changing the focusing screen for a better manual focusing experience. I think this cam should have been a lot better than what it is, but you can't complain with that sensor in that nice looking body.
