  1. Can totally appreciate where you're coming from, Les. I tend to get a bit sentimental over inanimate lumps of metal/glass and plastic (Mrs G thinks I'm not the full quid as a result). Cameras evoke memories of places I've taken them, hence my Nikon F3 will be saved from the 'burning house'. 2nd on the save list is the Nikon D700, but all the other bits of kit, I'm not so bothered about. I'm selling the X-H1 and the Mitakon 35 but the X-Pro2 stays as it's finally won me over. For some time I've thought about getting back to motorcycling (I gave up 3 years ago as a result of my meds making me a bit dizzy) and had set funds aside for another bike. Truth be told, I get so much enjoyment from photography, and if (or rather when) I get it wrong it doesn't hurt as much.
  2. Been mulling this over for at least a couple of years - buying a Leica M. Wanted one for as long as I can remember, but been putting it off for ages. These last few weeks I've been planning to slim-down my kit, and instead of just buying stuff on a whim, making a note of what I actually use - a slow process! Shooting a few friends' weddings has focused (sorry!) on what I actually need, and in doing so means I will have a lighter kit bag. The above Voigt 35 will work on my X-Pro2, which will mean the (rather wonderful it as to be said) Mitakon 35 will be up for sale. Or...'f*ck it - life's too short' Arriving on thursday...

  3. First time back at Belton House for us, since Christmas in fact. It doesn't get that much use, but took my D700 along today - should really use it more tbh. Storage-friendly file sizes (from just 12MP) and with the most gorgeous mono jpegs. Shame it's so bulky, noisy and darn heavy. Pulling faces by Boxertrixter, on Flickr Nikon D700/AF-Nikkor 85-1.8D
  4. Perfectly good reason to me, Barry.
  5. I'd just given Harley a brush - he pretends to not enjoy it, but when treats (in this case dried sprats) are on offer, he'll behave like an angel. The stare by Boxertrixter, on Flickr
  6. Plums are ready - best get them picked before this little b*gger gets in there: Sunlit plums by Boxertrixter, on Flickr The totally bloody amaze-balls Ricoh GR III
  7. Too right it was - if my EL was worn, I"d have snapped this up prrrronto. Mike's a gent too.

  10. Fuji's own 'plastic fantastic'. It's definitely the former, but having only just picked it up this evening I'll have to wait to see if it's fantastic. I've had both the Fuji 35 lenses (the 1.4 and f2) in the past - the f2 is a lens I respect, the 1.4 is one that I love. The Mitakon 35 has now taken over as my favourite 35mm for Fuji though, but I needed (ok...wanted) an AF 35mm in the bag. Sure it doesn't have the aperture ring, the mount is plastic but for 150 quid what's not to like? Plastic fantastic by Boxertrixter, on Flickr
  11. Nice one, Eamon - it looks fabulous, and with Peter having built it up for you, it'll sound great too.
