Aberaeron's current gear

Fujifilm X20
Nikon Coolpix P500
Nikon Coolpix S32
Great picture quality and looks fab.
Sold Oct2016
Great in tough conditions and for kids. Poor image quality as soon as light isn't ideal.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1 (Lumix DMC-TZ6)
Olympus OM-D E-M10
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6
Still here after all these years! My wife uses it mostly these days.
Looks great and is nice to handle. Still makes me think hard when using it, which is sometimes good but sometimes not. Well featured.
One sold Nov 2016, one kept. Still my favourite to hold and use.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 (Lumix DMC-GX80 / Lumix DMC-GX7 Mark II)
Sony SLT-A57
4K Photo. Yumm! A bit gothic to look at but works very well.
Like the G7 but with 5 axis stabilisation. Bought 30th Dec16
By today's standards it mainly lacks focus points. Lenses mostly external focus, noisily. Otherwise a great performer. Slightly outclassed by the features on M4/3 cameras but use it for variety. A future classic? Probably not, but it should be.
Olympus 9mm F8 Fish-Eye Body Cap Lens
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1.8
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ
Fun in miniature
Sterling portrait performer
Compact, but not my favourite. Fitted with the auto lens cap it is very compact and convenient
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 OIS
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / Power O.I.S
Heavier than any of the cameras I attach it to. Great quality all round.
Much sharper than I thought it would be and much better performer than the Sony 55-300 kit lens.
My favourite all-rounder and carry-everywhere lens.
Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS
Sigma 19mm F2.8 DN Art
Sony DT 35mm F1.8 SAM
Compact when not in use and possibly sharper across the frame than the Oly 14-42, and usefully wider angle, but not quite sure about it yet
Sharp looks and performance for a reasonable price.
Both DT primes would rate better if they were silent internally focussing
Sony DT 50mm F1.8 SAM
