Nah, you can develop film without a darkroom and just scan the negatives into the computer. My entire setup fits in two small tubs, and that includes my film dryer. I use a copy stand and camera to scan, but I am keen to try a nice scanner.Mine is also buying cameras.
35mm, 6x6, and 4x5
Looking for a 6x7 or 6x9.
I need to set up a darkroom, so that I can use the cameras.
It's apparently been almost 3 years so I thought I'd see what I wrote in this thread back in 2018. Man, was I off on predicting the future. Who knew I'd turn into more of a prime shooter? My current 3 lens lineup is the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5, the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, and the Olympus 45mm f/1.8. These three live in my man purse that goes everywhere. One of them (usually the 20mm) is on the camera and the other two are on back caps that are glued together.
I MIGHT end up switching the 45mm out for either a Helios 44-2 or a Sigma 30mm f/2.8. I don't have either at the moment but they are both on the wish list ;-)
Sounds like me right now. I've been buying lenses, but I can't really go out to use them. lol.
Oooh you also have the PL 12 and PL 15. I have those two, and would love to add the Oly 8mm FE...For say on holiday to cover everything, has to be 5 for me. Oly 8mm FE, PL 8-18, Oly 12-100, PL 15, Pana 42.5 and PL 100-400. If only 3 allowed, then the 3 zooms. As the 5 lenses I mention are still within my weight limit, with an EM1.2, I also take a PL 12 1.4 for astro and Oly 60 macro.

There is no "replacing" going on. That assumes lenses are going away. Which just doesn't even make sense. What is wrong with you? ;-)I have the Helios 44-2 and at 58mm it is too long to be a true replacement for your 45mm f1.8
With a focal reducer of .72x I get much closer to the FOV but of course no AF. Fun lens though, and if you can get the lighting right that swirly bokeh.
