I use email, the Web, texting and What's App. No longer can sleep at night. Mind is always working. iPhones, Ipad and laptop. Constant distractions and by touch screen on my car. It would probably kill me to start up with all these other anti sanity social media sites.

Mike, Gotta go with the Leica M10-D. Technology takes a back seat to the purist.

Mike, your problem is that you are a liberal (same problem if you were a conservative). What I mean is that if someone tags themselves with a label then they are already giving up on spontaneous self expression. Quit the labels and think for your self. After 8 years, I just bought a new car, a 2019 VW Jetta 40 MPG sedan. Could not be happier. Goes so well with my Fuji X100f. Have a bright and sunny day.
Fuji X-Pro2 with Fuji 14/28 and the 35/2 for my "tele".
always been a classic Nikon guy (F, FM2n, FE), but years ago I tried out the Pentax cult. After about a year I went back to Nikon (luckily I never sold my stuff). Just more sturdy (at least to me). And price? The FE was $75 and the F was $25, okay I paid $200 for the FM2n. So good luck Pentax folks.
My Pany/Leica 15/1.7 lens (I know that is a 30mm field of view) really lives on my Pany GX8. Glorious.

That is a hellava a story. I have a weatherproof Pany kit (GX8 and 12-60). Been through a lot of sea spay down here in Florida, Everglades mud. Next time it snows here in South Florida, I will try out the 4 month snow thing just to keep you honest.
My Leica M7 because it has all the technology I need. I send the negs to Precision Camera along with a flash stick. In a week or so I get digital photos on my stick. At this point, I am as digital as the next guy.
Happy Chanukah and Festive Greetings to all.

Right now the GX8 with the Pancake 20 mm f1.7 II is my go to street shooter. Got the GX8 with the 12-60 deal. That lens is a tour de force. Love the whole rig. Love the weight (came from Nikon), love the ergonomics.
Oh how far Leica has strayed. From the gritty street fighter M, outfitted with a 50 mm/1.4 lens taking a 43 mm filter to behemoth needing an 85 mm size filter!!!!! weighing in at 1,065 grams!!! Obviously the SL was made for RAW wrestlers, I guess.

As a Pany GX8 owner I was told that the newest firmware had a sufficient work around for shutter shock. Anyway never had any in the first place. And oh yes the GX8 is starting to get more use than my Leica's.
Thom is cranky but intelligent. I like it. He certainly is not a poster boy for Nikon.

George Martin and the Beatles was just pure magic.His passing reminds us, once again how timeless it was and is. R.I.P.

Do not agree, Mike. Islam is at war with the West. Wake up!! This is not going away. Concentrate on defeating it not coddling so called innocents.

Those Ricoh's (aw Pentax's)are like little tanks. I love my K-5iis. Thinking of adding the Real Ricoh (the GR)as a pocket camera. Yehaa!!
