    I knew that stuff was piling up a good bit around the kitchen counters. So I convinced my wife that we needed a cabinet of some sort to hold all my random photography bits. Anyway, found a nice cabinet and set it up. The situation is actually worse than I thought LOL!


    There are also 3 other P&S cameras which are out of sight. A Kodak DX7440, a Sony something or other, and the Fuji Finepix F20 I shot this with..... Gotta start selling some of this stuff!!

    What is it about photo gear? It just keeps accumulating...

    I'm pretty bad, but I've cut down a lot in terms of bulk now that the entire Canon system is gone (although technically I still have a 300D, 50/1.8 and a Sigma macro, all on permanent loan to my cousin...)

    At least with mu43 it's smaller gear so you can get more in a cabinet.

    My M43 stuff is a bit more than I bargained for. E-M5, E-P5, GX7 bodies. O15mm lens cap, O12-50, O40-150, O17 f1.8, PL 12-140, PL100-300, PL25 F1.4, PL 12-35 f2.8, ROKINON 7.5mm.
    Adapted legacy glass: Canon FD 100 f2.0, 50 f1.4, 50 f.18, 50 f3.5 Macro, Konica 50 f1.7, Mamiya-secor 50 f1.8, OM Zeico 50 f1.8, OM Zeiko 24 f2.8
    A couple of slow, manual zooms (junk) and a handful of wide angle adapters, extension tubes, and filters.

    I still have my Nikon D60 with a couple of AR lenses and the OM 35mm body as well as the Konica TC 35mm body. I don't know how all this happened :wink:, but really it needs to stop and consolidate. Perhaps I should sell all the M43 but the 12-35 f2.8 and the 2 primes, and get the O-M1 body......

    Looks good, but I don't think I'd want to have all of mine in one place like that... I might get hassled!

    You have an understanding wife... I need to keep my stuff in at least 6 different locations, so she can't keep track of which cameras and lenses I own (she can't see the difference anyway) ;)
