dbaechli's current gear

Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS)
Fujifilm X100T
Fujifilm XF1
Got a red one. Not this horrible pink *g*
For the time being, I am keeping the X100S. They are both just simply beautiful and almost perfect in handling. The X100T has quite a couple of things that make me like it a lot. On the other hand, I prefer the buttons layout / handling of the X100S!
Got it in brown finish. Beautiful design. More a bit of a fashion accessory, to tell the truth.. ,-)
Nikon Coolpix P300
Samsung TL500 (EX1)
Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D)
Will that little thing -eventually- help me to get over the imminent loss of the 7D? We shall see. So far, I kinda like it with the smaller lenses (ok, even with the 50 f1.2).. The touchscreen handling really makes up for the lack of wheels and buttons..
Fujifilm X-T1
Leica M8
Olympus OM-D E-M1
Beautiful camera, awesome iq - one of my favourite. Since the last fw update it is dead silent and super fast (in terms of f-stop *g*) in bright sunshine with a wide open 56 f1.2 lens.
What can I say? Once in a lifetime you need one to.. know you want yet another one? The M8 is quite dated and I feel it. Still, it's built like a tank but feels pretty old-school. Not sure if the newer Ms feel much different, though.. ,-)
Ever and ever again I am surprised by the iq you get with an mft sensor. The serial speed on this cam is simply awesome. I'm still longing for that 40-150 f2.8 to complete my 12-40 f2.8.. But - I'm not quite there yet.
Olympus PEN E-P1
Olympus PEN E-P3
Sony Alpha 7
This just belongs into the collection. One of the first mft's out there and I still love it.
Gave it away to the daughter of friends. Now I've got it back. Classic mirror-less digital system camera. My first. Might stay ,-)
I love what you can do with this cam. FF plus legacy lenses - at that price? A dream come true.. (with some flaws I hope they'll fix with a series II a7S, at a likely affordable price tag).

dbaechli's previous gear

Fujifilm FinePix X100
Fujifilm X10
Fujifilm X100S
Sold and bought the X100S.
Beautiful compact Fuji with great viewfinder. Sold it to.. get some other stuff.
Actually, this is all you need. Ever ,-) Still, got the X100T. Would have kept it if it wasn't for the money.. And electronics (that will be outdated in 10 years, I reckon, like with most digital stuff)..
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100
Canon EOS 5D
Canon EOS 40D
Sold it. Didn't warm up with the Panasonic.
Sold. Got a Sony a7 full frame.
Sold to friends and got a Canon 7D.
Canon EOS 50D

Sold and got a Canon 40D.
Nikon D200
Nikon D300S
Canon EOS 7D
Sold it and got a D300S.
Sold it together with all my other Nikon gear. Awesome camera, but at some point it is just too much equipment/different systems.
I am having a hard time with my 7D. I feel like selling it, but -emotionally- I am not sure if I am ready ,-) 2015: eventually sold..
Olympus OM-D E-M5
Olympus PEN E-P5
