    You have the wrong girlfriend.

    Mine encourages me to take what equipment I want. Encourages me to take photographs and never complains about waiting. And if I decide not to take camera equipment thats ok too.

    Time to trade in your girlfriend for a newer model.

    you've assumed a couple things wrong. 1/my girlfriend doesn't mind waiting around for me to take shots and she's extremely encouraging about me taking over the laundry room and turning it into a darkroom and having all kinds of photographic shit lying around with no complaints. 2/she only tells me to condense my equipment, 'cause i bitch about having too much. 3/she's too awesome to "trade in"...also, trading in would assume that someone else is willing to date me.

    But when it comes to carrying heavy cameras, wasn't there a guy called Oskar Barnack or something like that?

    Considering the amount of gear mentioned in your OP I recon you would have to trade her in for a Mule or perhaps a sherpa so keep her and start listening to what she says.

    When I needed to travel with a medium format camera load to capture images that would be enlarged to 8x10 or larger and I needed to travel with a light load, I usually carried one body and three lenses (wide, normal, and telephoto). Instead of carrying a second medium format backup body, I carried a small 35mm rangefinder with a normal lens.

    Sounds like you might want to consider a Hexar AF. Wonderful lense, built like a tank, silent operation. All in all a great camera......
    Never met a camera I didn't like...

    Contax G1 is the choice I'm currently exploring. The 45/2 Planar T* is a winner for sure. My camera and 45/2 cost me about $300. Lenses run about $200-250 each for the common 28-35-45-90 lenses, $500+ for the 21mm, $1000+ for the 16mm. I do appreciate having a compact RF that focuses to 0.5m minimum with the 45mm. It has full manual exposure plus auto exposure, 16sec-1/2000.



    Contax G1, 45/2, Provia 100F





    In the shot of the house, I can tell the screws in the doorbell button are phillips head - sharp enough for me!

    The question is can you surrender yourself to a compact AF camera? I'm coping just fine - its a bit of a break chasing the kids indoors and actually being able to keep up.
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!

    They look more like Posidrive to me!
