    So long to the great mount that is F, the cameras that have brought me such joy and given me great files. Thank you D90, D3000, D200, D80, D5000, D70, D100 and especially you franken brother the Fuji S5. So I have sold the last of my Nikons and will be selling the Fuji and all the lenses in due time, I looked and none has been used for 6 months since I picked up a cheap G3. Now I have no idea what to do with the funds I get apart from a 25mm, don't want to upgrade the cameras unless I can get a GH2 or G6 for less than £250, well it'll be fun.

    Save a few of your favorite lenses if you can afford to, maybe even that S5. I know I regretted selling my S2. Nikon is bound to come out with something interesting in the ILC dept soon as I think they are finally getting the fact that the world is not ready for Nikon 1.

    Nah, not getting rid of any of my Nikon gear.....Or Minolta, or Konica, nor Leica, nor Pentax.... I can still use the lenses on my Oly, so why would I ? They are all just tools anyway...

    Well part of the reason to say goodbye is the weight, I may keep the 35G and get a D3200 but I am more tempted to get a used Leica, never been really happy with the flapping mirror.
