I'm excited about the 27mm lens - it's tiny, like a body cap. I reckon I could fit that and the camera in my coat pocket for climbing mountains where my Mum lives - might even be possible with the 18mm. Not possible with the 5D due to body size, even with the pancake lens - and the weight would be weird in a pocket. So even if I don't end up selling my DSLR, I'll have a great travel camera. Pretty much bi-winning.


Congrats!! I really like my Fujis :)
Much cycling such kilometers.

OS if you decide to sell the Canon I may have a buyer.

Good to know, thanks!

I might have a buyer in the UK. I assisted a Uni friend with a wedding in September and, obviously, we talked a little bit about gear. I said I was constantly tempted to trade down to smaller kit now I'm not really working and prefer everyday street/travel photography. He was keen on it as a second body, but I'm not sure how keen/if he's got the funds. Always good to have options!

Picked up a Pentax K1. Initial impressions have been really good. Also picked up a 40mm prime lens (pictured attached) second hand which is showing a bit of promise :)

Bagged me a Nikkor DX 40 mm micro. Boxing day sales knocked $100 off the price. I'm glad they make cheaper lens for beginners/hacks like me. I went out before and just snapped a few hand held shots and the detail is really good but I have to be close.

Nice one!

I use all Nikon at work now. To the point where I forget how to drive my canon gear sometimes. I really like it. The new D850 is far and away the best camera I’ve ever used.
