Hi folk! Well I've returned from my latest adventures and five months of intensive travel photography, across a whole bunch of different locales and situations, has got my thinking about the evolution of my kit and gear for the future. I never thought I'd reach this point but at the moment I'm happy with my interchangeable kit. Everything I have serves it's purpose and serves it well, and it's been about a year now since I've bought (or actually wanted to buy - shock horror...) a new lens. The new 12-40mm has me tempted for its quality and sealing, but frankly it can wait for my next adventure to somewhere damp and cold (Baffin Island perhaps?). That said, the hole I have been feeling, and the one that's stirring my previously dormant G.A.S., is that of a quality compact. If you've followed any of my posts here you've probably gathered that I'm pretty into 'adventurous' outdoorsy stuff. Of late I've been getting more and more into shorter, more serious trips that respond well to the 'fast and light' ethos. This is mainly in the form of very rough, off-track hiking and slightly less hectic trail-running. Over the past 6 months I've begun to feel that my OMD kit is a bit of a hassle for this kind of stuff, and frankly my iPhone just isn't cutting the mustard as a compact replacement. So, here's what I'm after... - A compact, quality body that will complement, not replace, my interchangeable gear for the stuff mentioned above, and probably also for a fair bit of travel/street photography. A few things to consider... - I've been shooting primarily with primes for nearly two years, so while I'll certainly consider zoom options they definitely aren't a requirement. - I have high expectations regarding IQ - none of the 'rugged' compacts I've used have met these. - Price is a consideration, but it's not the most important element. - I don't have any of the compact MFT primes (14/f2.5, 17/f2.8, 20/f1.7), if you were going to suggest a compact MFT body. Suggestions? I've got a fair idea of what I'm interested in, but I'd like to see the direction others would take without any prompting :smile: Cheers!
