Abacus"- to be replaced this summer by a K-5 or the new mirrorless K-01[/quote]

Nice I really want that K-01, if anything just to look at.

relax, you're better than most professional photographers. keep carrying nearly nothing.

Thats not fair as it really depends on the job or what you are trying to do. I get that your eyes are the most important thing and Henri only used a 50mm lens ect.......

Well, Poagao's got "the eye". He can take stuff with his phone camera that leaves all the fancy SLR users in the dust. My coworker also has it, she can frame stuff so beautifully it's like a setup. Those of us who lack the skills/experience/"the eye" make do with fancy equipment and a lot of Photoshop.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

He actually had some stuff inside the bag, but you didn't notice.

I have a Sony fullframe DLSR A850, the accompanying pack of headache tablets (neck weight), typically a Minolta AF 3.5-4.5/28-105mm, a prime lens Minolta AF 1.7/50mm (using it since 1999), a prime Sony SAL 2.8/28mm and sometimes a fisheye Sigma EX DG 2.8/15mm or a Cosina (actually Soligor) 3.5-4.5/19-35.

The latter is a lens with good optics, but built-for-Minolta and tends to break after a year on the rougher Sony AF. However the Ebay price is constantly going down, so I just replaced it with the next Soligor/Cosina/Voigtländer/...

There is now sometimes a non-fullframe Sony DSLR A230 as backup in my bag as well, an older 10M-pixel DSLR, which is small and light. Because the big Sony had the mirror flying off once during shooting - it shocked me to the bone.

Sometimes I only bring the small Sony and the 28mm prime lens and enjoy how light it is. Sometimes I am daydreaming of selling the other heavy stuff on Ebay... :aiyo:
