Re: E5 or 35-100 f2

Just in passing, in the end I found the move to FF unsatisfactory, because the weight I was carrying around was (literally) insupportable. And I'm a big chap, who works out.

I regretted handing my FT / HG gear to Eva, I still think it was the optimum for my kind of shooting.

The compromise I reached was to run a second system - MFT. However, that system is now so good it makes the FF gear semi-redundant.

I am now choosing between selling off all the FF gear on the basis faster MFT bodies will be along soon, or selling just the D3 and getting the forthcoming D800, which will once again offer true DR and speed benefits over MFT.

If anyone cares

Oh, and as for FT gear: the main problem is that, while it is to my mind the best system, Oly have abandoned it. So the choice (which Eva is now making) is whether to make the best of it while it lasts, or sell it while it has value.
