JROSE: Sony A7's (II and IIR) are amazingly good. You'll enjoy them. Then again, a film Leica is amazing, too.

That's what I've heard. I almost bought an a7 Monday but a friend convinced me that the second iteration is worth the extra cash. I think I'll keep stuffing the piggy bank until I can get myself an a7ii w/ the 24-70 kit lens.

A Fujinon-W 210/5.6 lens for the Graflex. I think at this point I've gotten the trinity of a wide, standard and tele for LF.

JROSE: Let me add that having gone from Fuji X-PRO2 to Sony A7II, it's pretty much a lateral move that gains IBIS for adapted lenses... and worth it on that score. BUT the A7RII... that camera is amazing!! Bought an Open Box.... but the photos literally scream at you, "What else could you possibly ask for?" I run a collection of Zeiss Contax CY and Loxia primes on the camera.

What else? Oh... so I bought a film camera: Leica M4-2, Zeiss ZM 35/2, Zeiss ZM 50/2 and a Leica Tele-Elmarit 90mm with some B&W developing and bulk loading supplies. Film photography is fun! Digital is amazing, too.

I've been shooting mainly film for the past few years which is exactly why I sold my digital. Not even a day later, I was kind of regretting it and then I came across an a7ii at Best Buy. Does that camera every feel great in the hands... not to mentioned substantially smaller than my D7000 yet it has a full frame sensor!

Now I just need to muster up the courage to go grab one

Flashpoint StreakLight 360 (Adorama version of the Godox AD360) with wireless power control and triggering. Powerful portable flash that. Makes my Nikon speedlights feel like toys. The powerpack for the Streaklight can power my SB24 for the times I want smaller and automatic exposure.

Nikon 45mm f2.8 P On my Nikon FM bodies this makes an extremely light and compact package. Had been thinking of this setup for some time but after using an Elmar 50 mm f3.5 collapsible on my M4-P lately, I like the benefits of going small & light.

Nikon PB-4 bellows with PS-4 slide copy adapter. Start of strategy to scan my old slides.

Just keep in mind that the sensor cover glass is thicker on Sony cams, so if you have any rangefinder lenses wider than 50, there will be some ugly smearing at the very corners of the images, especially at wider apertures.
I learned this only after getting A7ii

There are a couple of ways to get around the problem, kolari mod (expensive) and a front end filter solution (not tested on many lenses, so might be a hit or miss)

Otherwise it's a fantastic camera, I just love that it can take any old lens with an adapter. Focusing is a breeze on still subjects with focus magnification. It can even autofocus mf lenses if you decide to get a techart pro adapter, i'm still undecided if I need one.

This weekend I found an Olympus Centurion APS SLR super-zoom for $5. I put new batteries in it (which probably are worth more than what I paid for the camera) and it seems to work just fine. I cleaned dust off of it, and programmed the date and time. It's like a tiny version of the big iS-1 I bought a couple of month ago and have been enjoying perhaps too much. Both of these cameras will probably be little more than curiosities in 20-30 years, assuming I can find APS film by then, and assuming anyone still runs the expensive minilabs for developing APS film.

Just got a Zeiss Ikon Taxona. Square format 35mm. Gave it a clean up but it's still got the terrifyingly stiff film advance lever threatening to rip the film at any moment. I'm not sure there exists a copy that doesn't have a stiff wind on to be honest. Put some stupidly expired Polaroid branded film in it for a test roll. If the results impress, it might replace my Minox as primary pocket camera as I'm going off auto-exposure lately.

A year or so ago I swore to myself I’d never buy another bag…

Two weeks ago I bought the Peak Design Everyday Sling.

Superb quality and finish. I love the way it hugs my back, but with the strap extended, can be swivelled around to my chest, so I can change lenses etc.

Without being overly large, it’s deceptively spacious and accommodating when needed but packs small when not. So far, it’s proving ideal for my Fuji X-Pro2 and three lenses, batteries, charger and Kindle etc when I travel

Right now, it’s the last bag I’m going to purchase. But I’m not making this a promise.

My kids have begun showing interest in (film) photography, "playing" with my beater cameras, figuring out how things work and how different camera & lens settings produce different effects.
I can't let them have all the fun, so I picked this up for myself.
