Re: Split duty, Fuji Pentax Sigma

My gear has now split down the middle. All action and long tele work is Pentax. All street and camera club outing are Fuji. Some scenery shoots are Sigma though. Macro work gets split between them. I tend to be a slow methodical shooter so Fuji's AF issues are not a big deal. It is nice to be able to grab the gear most appropriate to my shooting needs. Viva le difference...

Pretty much describes me. My Pentax was mostly for birding in the beginning, trips on the water, out in the desert etc. When I needed rugged, and maybe a little tele. Fuji was for street photography or times when I was taking it slow, looking to frame nice scenes etc. Still that way, but my new K-01 might change that as it's been coming with me for street photography more and more. Q lives in my bag for times when I need want a camera handy and not too concerned about IQ.
