    I recently sold all my back breaking Canon gear and made the switch to Micro four thirds an Olympus omd e-m1 and a handful of lenses to start and I asked myself why I didn't make the switch years ago. My pictures are just as sharp as my 1ds mkiii, although the full frame had a shallower depth of field off the bat however I fix that with a faster prime on the Olympus.

    My prints are tack sharp and my clients can't tell a difference between the Canon and Olympus, which is all that matters when it comes down to it. IMG_4558.JPG IMG_4554.JPG IMG_4556.JPG

    I finally got a GoPro 6. Also got a dome port for under/over surface photos and underwater filters. Waiting for the floaty hand grip. This thing is ridiculously small and has an iPhone app.

    I have a Nikon D7100 that's set up with a Tamron SP 150-600 F/5-6.3 Di VC USD superzoom lens for bird photography. I also carry a Nikon D5200 fitted with a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 1:3.5-4.6G lens for landscape and people photos.

    I've recently added a nice Nikon FM film camera with 50mm f2 Nikkor to the collection. I paid $2.78 for it due to it being sold by weight.

    I have a Nikon D5500 with a 10-20, 16-80, 70-300, and 35 1.8. Also still have my N60 film body, but I don't know if it's of any use since I sold off all my screw drive AF lenses, and all my new ones are DX.

    Today I picked up a Go-Pro Hero 6 for under $5 in a grab bag at the GW as-is. Works and looks great but is missing a few accy's like the bolt for the mount and a suction cup. Think I'll use it as a dash cam when I go on trips. My wife wants me to flip it and make a good profit. The rest of the stuff in the grab bag was trash. I guess that is a score.

    I have a Canon 7D and 20D for times when I really feel like taking photos. I have a bunch of lenses and a couple of flash units to match. Those accessories cost a pretty penny, but the cameras I bought used when they could be had for a song. Both are old now, and folks generally want the latest and greatest.

    For snap shots until recently I have used a Lumix DMC Z7, but now I got my first smart phone, a HTC m8. The phone camera has amazing quality, and it's always there. I do miss the zoom of the Lumix though.

    I have a second used Lumix for underwater shots.

    I have also kept my very first SLR, a Minolta XD-7, with a small set of lenses and some other more or less collectable older Minolta SLRs. I have those for nostalgic reasons only. I haven't shot film since the first day I got a DSLR.

    Since every post about photography should have a photo, here is one from my train spotting days in the early 1980s. Minolta XD-7, MD 75-200mm f/4.5, Agfa CT18 slide film.

    What happens when you sell off the piles of audio gear?

    Got the Sony α7R III and the Sony/Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70 mm F4 on sale, but returned it (bad reviews). Waiting for the FE 16-35mm, F2.8 GM to come on Friday and the FE 24–105 mm, F4 G OSS lens is back ordered.

    This thing is a wee bit bigger than my Panasonic LUMIX GH-2, but substantially heavier.

    Full-frame mirrorless at 42.4MP. Oh yeah.

    Had the Sony A7II, upgraded to the A7RIII. I really like the bump in MP, and the improvements over the A7II.

    Yeah, the A7R III and 24-105 (and a couple primes) is pretty tempting, but I'm just too invested in Nikon to make the move.

    I almost went with the D850. It's huge in comparison. I like going light.

    You can adapt all your Nikon glass to a Sony, so think of your investment only in terms of camera body and see how you feel then.

    I've thought about it but that 24-105 seems like a pretty dang nice lens. I'd probably adapt my primes but I'd have to get the 24-105.

    Guy at my local brick and mortar camera shop said that a surprising number of pros are switching to Sony stuff.

    I decided to flip it and that went well. My spouse is happy now - I think.

    Picked up a Nikon® COOLPIX W100 waterproof camera....I keep this on my motorcycle for snap shots. Not high end by any means but gets the job done!

    I don't have a smart phone so I always carry one of these with me where ever I go.

    Do the adapters work well? No issues with AF accuracy or speed? I’ve heard Canon lenses work well on the Sony mirrorless cameras but Nikon lenses are problematic. And I expect screw drive AF isn’t supported?

    I only use old manual lenses on my Sony's so can't say if the adapters for the later lenses work or not.
    I have used a TAP adapter with my manuals and it works a treat as they say.
    With my A7ii, all my lenses are now stabilized and autofocus too when using the TAP adapter. I usually don't use it though as I find focusing myself helps keep me involved with taking the picture, a lot like shooting film used to.
    I do have one native Sony lens, the 28mm f2 which is super sharp and pretty light weight too.
