alfredo_tomato's current gear

Olympus OM-D E-M10
Olympus PEN E-PL1s
Olympus PEN E-PM2
The EPL1 is a solid performer. It may not be the fastest camera, but it produced fine images. That's what its all about. It sold me on Olympus.
Warning, Men In Black reference below. This is the Noisy Cricket of cameras. Big results from a tiny camera.
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6
Panasonic Lumix G 14mm F2.5 ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G 25mm F1.7 ASPH
Sigma 19mm F2.8 EX DN
Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN
You don't need to break the bank to get good glass. The Sigma 19mm and 30mm are very good budget lenses.
My go to lens. Big bang for the buck.

alfredo_tomato's previous gear

Canon PowerShot S50
Canon PowerShot G10
Actually it is the Canon Powershot s110 Digital ELPH 2.1mp. This camera wasn't listed, so i added the closest camera.
Another tough as a brick camera. When not shooting photos, I could crack walnuts with it. It served me well for years.
Built like a tank. A good performer at low ISO. Finally shelved it when the sensor got so dirty it became a chore to edit them out.
Olympus PEN E-PL1
A classic. Made me a fanboy.
Other gear:
  • Brownie Hawkeye Plastic fantastic. Nice little camera.
  • Brownie Six-20 When not using for photography, it makes a nice lunch box.
  • Pentax Spotmatic A fine hunk of metal.
  • samsung maxima 80GL
  • Yashica D I loved this camera.
  • Yashica Electro X
