    lol - this seems to be a trend with recent Nikon cameras. My D7000 had them too.

    Nice combo. I gotta ask: oil spots? Those dots on the LHS are from the camera? Since you seem amused, i assume these can be removed?

    Yes, it's a known issue with the D600. For the first couple thousand shots the camera sputters oil onto the sensor cover. They can be removed either by cleaning the sensor yourself or sending it to Nikon for them to clean. I'm not troubled by it because I rarely stop down enough for them to show up and the prospect after cleaning the sensor once after a few thousand shots doesn't bother me. Knew all about the issue before I bought the camera.

    Now lets see some cameras!

    E-M5    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/1.8    1/25s    ISO 3200

    Don't tell my E-M5...the Fuji X-10 is still my main squeeze. It replaced my GF-1 + 20/1.7 combo, but then got replaced by the E-M5. Now they exist in harmony, and though I reach for the E-M5 more often, the X-10 is my favorite.

    I use it with the Fuji hood and UV filter always on, so there is no hassle with lens cap. The thumb grip is a nice ergonomic plus.

    If Fuji can pull a Sony move here and jam a 1" sensor in to this body, and keep the fast lens, I think it would replace my :43: kit.

    Squeeze & squeeze again

    Despite flicking formats, the combo I keep coming back to is the GX1+25mm due to it's size and superb image quality - I did wonder if getting rid of the GF1+20 was the right move, but this combo is proving an even better tool and one that draws me back time and time again.

    Still rippin' with the EM-5.

    I've the EPL-1 as a backup but probably should consider selling that one...but then I wouldn't be able to take photos of the EM-5 :wink:.

    Photo shows the 14mm Panasonic mounted, but I've since acquired the Olympus 15mm and it has become the "lens cap" of the camera.

    self-consistency - or a rut?

    Here's mine:
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/3.5    1/25s    ISO 400

    Oh .. wait ... that was then ....

    This is now:
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/3.5    1/20s    ISO 400

    Striking how sort-of similar they are:
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/3.5    1/50s    ISO 400

    What hath 50 years wrought?

    I like those stands. Always makes me uncomfortable when the lens rim rests on the table.
  13. I have a few of different brands (Pentax, Leica, and I think Minolta)... I used to be involved in retail and acquired them from now defunct retailers I used to work with. They actually sit in my display case for my old M3 and Canon Rangefinder IVSB (haha. used to be a Titanium M6 which I sold). I borrowed them to take this photo... IIRC, the red one is suppose to be an original dealer stand that was provided to display the M3 (and a little later the M2). The white one (i think) was provided to the dealer to showcase the then new M6 classic.

    I really liked this thread surprised it didn't really take off, but here's my contribution. My first real camera and the sigma 30 on it that I just got last night.

    Mine. If you notice on the PM1, I happily removed the triangular metal ring (meant for the neck strap).
