WhiteBeard's current gear

Canon PowerShot S100 (2000) (Digital IXUS)
Canon PowerShot S2 IS
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3
13 years old and the battery is still holding its charge; amazing! Very pocketable and sturdy. Still use it also.
2005 Super Zoom; I still use it.
Prime camera, bought July 2011
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-45mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-200mm F4-5.6 OIS
Samyang 7.5mm F3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT
At this time, still the best wide-tele zoom for µ4/3 for the price...
Pretty damn good and luggable all-around tele at low cost.
Actually, badged as Rokinon. Fun to work with but focus ring has too much friction.
Other gear:
  • Rokkor 100mm F3.5 Macro With MC-µ4/3 adapter makes a superb 200mm equiv. macro lens (but damned heavy).
  • Rokkor 58mm F1.4 With MC-µ4/3 adapter (20$) makes a great 116mm equiv. F1.4 portrait lens for my G3.

A lot lighter and brighter than the previously described Rokkor 100mm macro+ adapter, but better?

As much fun as my old 21mm F2.8 at 1/2 the weight, but not for 1100+$ !!!
