About me:

I've taking photos for over 30 years. I still have most of the gear I've bought over this period - not because I'm a collector but because I keep my cameras too long and, for what I'd get for them, they're just not worth selling. The lenses -they never go out of date and I still use them all.

Film gear
Fuji az-1
Nikon FG
Nikon F100

Digital
CP900 (my first dabble with digital in 1998 - not impressed)
D70 (my second dabble with digital - impressed)
D200 (really great camera and the end of film for me)
D2X (nice but even at base iso the DR is too narrow and it blows highlights in a very ugly way)
D700 (does everything really well - my last dslr? - no!)
X100 (my "go to" camera for every-day use - lovely jpegs)
D600; Df; D810; D500 (all great)

My attempts to find a 'carry around' camera
LX3 (ok in raw under iso 200)
EPL-1 (nice jpegs, can use old nikkors, but cannot live with its af or noise)
X10 (best so far - great form factor, iso range, jpegs.... everything except the viefinder which is not as good as I'd hoped)
V1, J1 and V3

Lenses (all good, a couple are great)
AIS 50 1.2
AIS 28 2.8
AIS 105 2.5
AFD 24 2.8
AFD 50 1.8
AFD 105 2.8 micro
AFS 300 4
AFS 300 2.8
AFS 18-70 (d70 kit lens, suprisingly good)
AFS 28-70 2.8
AFS 70-200 2.8
1.4 extender

Lots of accessories.

    Like a lot of others here, this was the start of digital photography for me. I'd tried several non-dslr type digital cameras before (coolpix 900, 8700, canon pro1) but it wasn't until the D70,...
