thx a lot for getting back @moto @marlin ...well recently i'm mostly shooting product photos and such. though i would use it as my "go to" camera which means that i'd shoot anything with it. taking it on city trips, longer vacations, shooting portraits and/or landscapes etc. ...

i'm not a professional photographer, not at all, but i'd say i have a great "eye" for what i can tell...just want to take some good pics that's all ;)

any other suggestions while we're at it?

cheers and thanks in advance.

Good point @marlin regarding Sony battery life, they made improvements on the mk2 but still not great. I carry 2 batteries in good weather, 3-4 in cold.

@marlin what Leica lenses did you have?

@marlin my brother swapped from a Canon 5D to the Nikon equivalent (D800E, I think), but largely uses an Olympus OM-D because it's smaller and lighter.

He finds it suitable for most of what he does. Sure, the Internet experts reckon you need something more serious for landscape photography, but he gets better results than most of them. :)

@moto, I had 21/3.4, 28/2, 50/1.4, 90/2 and a 135/3.4 these were the actual lenses from the line up in 2013.

@Graeme, it dosen't matter today what you use, they all very good, so that the photographer itself is the limiting factor (except some specfic tasks). If I really want to be light I'll use my Sony RX100IV, but have to live with it's limitations. (see below)

@Finn666, sounds like a Sony A7 would be a great and the logical choice.

If you feel any passion in photographic and want a better haptic a Fuji X-Pro or a Leica M would be a good choice as well. Of course there is no autofocus, but it sounds like it isn't really needed.

To me personal a setup desicion only boils down to:
- is it passion
- or if you a pro
- if you have some specific needs
- want a universal tool
- or want to document your daily life with more or less interesst.

To me it is passion, but also want the best tool for the task. Leica covert to 100% the passion, they are a joy to use, the haptic is second to none. If you have once gotten spoild with awsome Leica lenses you don't really want anything less in quality. But I really missed the opotunity to shoot my dog in action, extrem wide angles in f 2.8 for the milky way and a good ISO performance at ISO 6400. Since I only can afford one system I changed to Canon, mainly besause of the TS 17/4.

Just picked up a Fujifilm X100F, it’s bloody great. Coming from an entry slr it feels great in hand. Haven’t got out to shoot properly yet but I’m excited to use it.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

I took my mom to a Lenten fish fry this evening and they were kind enough to let me go inside the church. The stained glass and marble were beautiful.

Used to take mirror selfies, then I read of some dude on here or selvedge style forum, who used his TIMER function on his cell phone. So I tried it out by propping/leaning my cell against two objects (shed door frame and tool box on a shelf) bout chest height and used the 10 sec delay and 3 shot burst. Turned out way better than I thought it would--outdoor indirect sun light helps and screw the flash.  Trial and error gets you dialed in on angles, poses, and distances. Takes many, delete most, only share the flattering ones!
 
Def no camera pro, but way better than indoor mirror pics that I used to post, and gives a whole new world of perspective on how you look with different combos, and feel it propelled my style game up a few notches.  Mirrors lie.  Yes, you feel like a douche but its worth it for the growth potential, and its fun to share your new/old IH goodies with the world.

Love to read what @rocket @Haddtoo 555 @Appfaff @den1mhead, @Cole  @BloodnThunder @neph93 @twin @summ3rhays  @madmonday @Max Power @Signal11 @mikebarhoot @motojobobo @Jordan23 @Matty123 @spitfiredealer and all the rest who I'm forgetting do to get their shots, so we can keep this bad ass thing that we all love growing strong. Really pumped on the current state of wdywt thread but always room for growth and new blood!!!

Personal I just use my Iphone connected to a bluetooth shutter remote (Amazon). Put the phone somewhere and shoot some pics. Sunlight is your friend, as well as shooting a few more pics, since you can always delete em. Try and error and don’t overthink the lot... it’s about having fun and not work imo...
