WhiteBeard's current gear

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8
Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm F1.4
Prime camera, bought July 2011 until an encounter between laser show and sensor...
New prime camera as of Sept 2016. So far, so good but definitely noticeably heavier than the G3. Feels good and even looks great in two-tone finish.
Truly excellent if a bit noisy sometimes.
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-45mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-200mm F4-5.6 OIS
Samyang 7.5mm F3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT
The oldest zoom in its category and I still haven't found enough reasons to change.
Pretty good and luggable all-around tele at low cost. Just try to use it around F7.1 / F8.
Actually, badged as Rokinon. Fun to work with but focus ring has too much friction.
Other gear:
  • Rokkor 100mm F3.5 Macro With MC-µ4/3 adapter makes a superb 200mm equiv. macro lens (but damned heavy).
  • Rokkor 58mm F1.4 With MC-µ4/3 adapter (20$) makes a great 116mm equiv. F1.4 portrait lens for my G3.
