It's crazy, due to a mildly autistic glitch and bewildering guy/girl/me ? stuff , - I tend to prefer twin cameras - things remain intangible , more than one seems to help reinforce ' input ' . This is fine with model buses , USSR Leica-likes etc , but digital cameras ??!!
I said it's crazy !!

Used Leica Digilux 3 & Panasonic L1 body with cheap 4/3rds Olympus lenses - colour+mono . I love the deranged finder style and handling , though the massive Leica f2.8 zoom is too unbalanced .

Sony A290 35mm f1.8 & A390 used £100 mint with a nostalgic Minolta 35-80 /52-120 , my favourite for architectural details / cars [ I don't do people except GrandDaughters ]
The handling seems familiar i.e. safe , from my Minolta AF days .

These remain a cameras which I am comfortable with .
I also have a Pentax K10D which seemed to blow out the completion at the time with a couple of FA lenses 'cos they cost little .
It does not integrate as well .

I then chanced on a Pentax K-S1 , zoom+35mm which seems instinctual , I love it - believe me , this is exceptional .
I am seriously considering a second blue body on close out , again , so covering 35mm and the 35-80 FA zoom from K10D days.
This is seriously unexpected , retirement , at near 70 having hit the possibility of more 'toys'.
This camera is such an advance with it's clear finder and screen with excellent IQ - even at f2.5 .

Is Pentax the only brand with green rings on the lens? If it is, then I saw 2 today. We have a greatfestival this weekend. It's Dinagyang and almost all photographers in the city are going wild.

Yeah, I think it's only a 70-300 and a 400mm, plus some ridiculous 1000mm patent.

I was at Shanghai Hongqiao Airport and another traveler saw my K-S2. He thought it was a 645. Lol.

But he didn't recognize my Sony NEX-6 had a FA43 Limited attached via a Lens Turbo II.

He did ask me about the K-S2, and I told him that it probably uses the same 20MP sensor as the Sony a5000, and has a very good dynamic range for a crop sensor camera.

I recently took some pictures at a charity boxing event in Plymouth that my stepson was taking part in. Anyway it was only after looking at the images on my computer I realised the official photographer was using a Pentax K-3.

Wonder how old her bag is? Minolta, and especially Yashica, havenʻt been around for quite some time now.
