I agree with you. One very good lens from 24 to 200mm is the same range I have with 2 lenses. I just need some therapy to help me change.

Just do it. I did it years ago and NEVER miss it. I had an A350 with full kit of lenses, gear etc, before that I had olympus cameras and a full set of lenses and gear. I sold it all off and bought a Fujifilm X10 and X-S1. I do not miss my other gear one bit. I am starting to add to the collection with some doozies like the X100, RX1R, RX10 iv and ii, and others. The same amount i spend on a mid range lens I get another awesome point and shoot that takes amazing photos and/or videos.

Set yourself free! ha ha.

I wish that more manufacturers would make NON ICL cameras with great internals. Like a fuji MF camera with a nice 10-200mm lens on it and done.  I would buy that in a heartbeat.  Or a sony RX10 v. include an optional battery grip, if they could widen the lens to 18-600mm equivalent and a few other things...I am IN!

Congratulations Rodrigo!

First a single entry:

Reynisfjara Beach

Then a few Exhibits:

Gljufrabui Waterfall

On the way to Jokulsarlon, I saw this valley with a glacier, waterfalls, and a rainbow. I always wondered what a b/w rainbow would look like. Now I know.

The Mighty Skogafoss in B/W

And the famous Sorting Hat from Hogwarts: Kirkjufell

Aloha,

Val

Nice Val The last one is incredible..Should have entered it

Whether one likes it or not large parts of plains and hills in Western Europe are used to produce power. In particular in the German Eifel this is very visible. 10-20 years no windmill to see..

Hello All,

In 2019, I was able to go to Colorado in April for a work-related conference. Afterwards, I spent a few more days visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, near Estes Park. These are three photos from that trip, and all are entries.

Sam

With the long exposure the water in the second picture is visualized wonderful!

Great topic for a challenge! Definitely limits my animal shots though, since over 90% of them are of horses (guess they count as pets?).

Landscapes aren't my normal thing, but I do try occasionally!

Thanks for looking!

Cathy

First time I was in Monterey after an extended work trip my first feeling was: this is paradise!

Re: ***Mini Challenge #641 "Black & white nature photography"

Actually there is one thing holding me back, DOF.

I have a 1" and APSC sensor cameras and there is a noticeable difference in DOF. 1 to 2 stops with APSC and considerably more with the 1" sensor.

I love mine as travel camera, but wouldn't use it professionally (for events, for example).

Oostvaardersplassen Flevoland (the Netherlands)

..that's about the nature we have in overcrowded the Netherlands. About 60 km from my home. Often go there for a walk, in particular in the evening. Wildlife is a lot of water birds and occasionally a fox..
