On article Pride and joy: shooting the Olympus PEN-F in Austin (285 comments in total)

Anyone upgrading from the original EM5-OMD to the new Pen-F, and if so what benefits are you looking for over the OMD?

I always had my eye on a X100 since I like the rangefinder 'type' cameras but the new Pen-F may have checked the Fuji boxes and a few more.

beenthere: Have the predecessor, the TG-2. Dropped it off a boat near Mexico and had to hire a diver to get it from ~200 feet down. Dropped same camera off a mountainside in NM and it fell/rolled/bumped for about 300 feet down a hillside. Still have it, still works great. Tough camera!

Hhhmmm, sound like you need a camera strap.

Pandimonium: Why buy a mirrorless indeed....

And soon much quieter especially if you're shooting in a classical concert type setting or during a ceramony.

ARB1: So, will Sony now upgrade their RX1r to include an EVF in addition to many other items then put it on the street for $1,000 less

Naaaa, I didn't mean $1,000, since MSRP is $2,799 I was thinking more along the lines of $1,799. Even around $2,000 it it had a few more bells and whistles and an EVF I'd surely consider it.

Nice bag but I think I like my fstop Kenti better. I've dragged my Kenti all around the world and it never failed me, and I like the look better also.

So, are Nikon and Canon just sitting on their hands, especially Nikon geeezzz. I would by a Nikon like this in a second since I've been a loyal Nikon guy for decades, but damn, how long should one wait?

On article Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge (733 comments in total)

Holding firm for the time being with my D800 and EM5, but waiting for my next move. It looks like either a new Sony FF or an Oly EM1 II, or even a Fuji X Pro 2 when they come out. Either way my D800 will probably be my last Nikon after almost 40 years of shooting Nikon. I have a feeling I'm not alone.

My fstop Guru and Kenti are my favorite backpacks by far, and the guys at fstop have been great to deal with. I've taken my Guru all around the world and it still looks great and has served me very well. I have a small and medium ICU for my Guru, small for my MFT gear and medium for my D800 gear. I use my Kenti around town and for light travel because it's great for street photography.

ARB1: Bag without the Leica dot $59.99, with the Leica dot $399.99.

True, it was more of a crack on Leica pricing than on the ONA bags. I think ONA makes some beautiful bags and if I had know about them prior to purchasing my Billingham I certainly would have given ONA a serious look.

Question, I travel a lot with my camera (just got back from Spain, Morocco and Portugal) and one concern I often have with backpacks is security and being able to add some type of additional security to the bag. I like the look of the ONA Camps Bay and Bolton Street Backpacks but is there a way to add additional clips to make the backpack more secure when in crowded areas? I've done this with my f-Stop backpack but I wouldn't mind having another backpack like one of the ONA's if I could secure it better. Especially since a photo of your Bolton Street Backpack shows a passport in the front pocket which is an area I'd suspect a pick pocket would focus on most.

On article Hands-on with new Olympus PRO 8mm and 7-14mm lenses (295 comments in total)

What a sweet travel combo: E-M1 II (when it arrives), 7-14mm f/2.8, 14-40mm f/2.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8. Since I already have the 14-40mm f/2.8, and if the new E-M1 is a big hit, I may just sell my D800 gear and move totally to MFT and add the two additional lenses- we'll see....

It looks like a camera with a really bad growth of some type on it.

Photomonkey: Here is the FF Olympus we've been waiting for. ;)

You may be right. I may be selling both my D800 and Oly OMD.

In reply to:

Mike FL: For us to take advantage of IBIS, Sony (and 3nd parties) needs to release some FE mount zoom lenses without OSS as Lenses are much cheaper and smaller without OSS/OIS.

Wait and see.

May be time to sell my D800 with all its lenses.
