    Off To Crete (hooray)

    Just tidying up the loose ends, then we're off to the airport.

    My Lowepro Orion trekker finally bit the bullet after 10 years of hard labour, so I bought another one - the water bottle won't fall out of the saggy elastic sides for at least 5 years

    Here it is:



    Last year I was packing Leica and Sony kit, which was a tight squeeze, and made for a lot of compromises

    This year is a bit different:



    and in there are
    2 OMD bodies
    9-18
    75-300
    12-50

    1 M9 body
    WATE (+frankenfinder)
    35 fle
    75 'cron

    kindle, ipad, chargers, batteries 43 to M adapter. Of course I can use the M lenses on the OMD as well.

    . . . . anyway - you guys have fun . . .

    all the best
    Jono

    Does put into proportion how small these mirrorless offerings are when you consider it not as the size of the body but the size of the overall package.

    Exactly Ben - so I have a focal length range from 16-600mm and several nice primes into the bargain; and it's light enough to carry for miles

    If you believe in the "it's the camera you have with you" mantra, then it's a good way to go, and I still have the quality for when I really need it. If I need more resolution, then stitching is a perfectly viable proposition.

    At the last minute I managed to sneak in another M9 body and the panny 20 f1.7. Small kit is fab.

    ...and anyone who runs into Jono and suspects that his body is a M10...he simply responds "can't you see man, it's a M8...everyone knows only the M8 has a the left side of the top plate flat"!

    Enjoy, will be nice to see your pics. I'm spending the day "Polishing" my sensor in hope of some decent weather later in the week. It's what new age pensioners do.
    Would be nice if you could post some good weather back to the UK, can't wait for you to bring it back.

    Hi chaps. Why not just pop over here to check it out. 35C. Not a cloud in the sky, water crystal clear and the beer is COLD.
    Who caress about cameras. Mind you, I can assure you that an OMD with the 75-300 can pop up with some pretty surprises!
