Currently my daily carry is an X-E1 in a mirrorless mover bag. There are times I carry the a99. It's about 50-50. I have the the E-M1 on pre order so that's probably going to change some what.

I was told a long time ago by a Leica tech don't fix it if you have no issues. Every time you open one its one less time you can.

I have a D800 and although I love the output it's not my favorite camera to use. If I could just put that amazing sensor in my a99 I would never want for another camera.

The best camera you never liked?

The one you bought and everyone else seemed to like but for what ever reason you just didn't like.
Me I think was the EP-1 and EP-3.
