About me:

Most vivid memory as photographer: getting booed at the FSU baseball stadium ca. 1982 for approaching and taking pics of the aftermath of a collision at home plate while working for the Florida Flambeau (FSU paper). Equipment then: Nikon F3, 4 Nikkors, some off-brand. F3 motor-drive that took 8 AA alkalines.

doug wever's current gear

Olympus OM-D E-M1
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm 1:1.8
Amazing camera, still getting used to the EVF. Been with Nikon until the OM-D E-M1 and came home to Olympus. Love the E-M1's nod back to the old film SLR's.
Used a rented one but am ordering my own.

doug wever's previous gear

Nikon D70
Nikon D700
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR
Other gear:
  • Nikkor 25-50 f/4.0 Bought when stationed in Okinowa, Kadena, AB, 1980.
  • Nikkor 500mm f/8 Mirror Also had various off-brand lenses for the F3, I remember one in the early 80's that was a 35-140, not great sharpness but 4X was remarkable at the time without a major investment like my 50-300 Nikkor.
  • Nikkor 50-300 4.5 (1980) Bought used in Okinawa, Japan, off-base for around $500, 1980ish
  • Nikon F3 (original) Bought at the Kadena AB Base Exchange as soon as available for around $500, and additional $315 for the motor drive when it became available. Found I still preferred my OM-1 and OM-2 though. Really.
  • Olympus OM-2 (ca.1978) Favorite camera ever, along with the OM-1, the latter which could shoot without batteries. Added numerous lenses not listed below.
  • Zuiko 135 f/2.8 & 50 f/1.8 ca. 1978, a teenager brand new to photography, the 50mm was a kit lens; and the 135mm f/2.8's $179 price tag at the Lackland Air Force Base BX seemed breathtaking at the time.
