DAILY PROMPT: KEEPING UP WITH MYSELF

Since you asked …

I want the Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens at a mere $999. It’s never on sale. It would be perfect paired with a new Olympus PEN E-P5. Also, I would very much appreciate the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Leica DG Summilux. These two lenses in combination would let me shoot in very low light without flash yet get fantastic quality.

I don’t know about the Jones’. Are they photographers?

I don’t expect to get either lens or the new camera. I’ll gratefully work with what I’ve got, my latest addition being a long yearned for Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix II. It has turned out to be as good as advertised and I’m having a blast with it. I’m basically a happy camper, photographically speaking. Of all the things I own, my cameras give me the most joy. Hard to regret them.

But … oh … those lenses. And the new line of Olympus 4/3 cameras are so sweet. I’m allowed to yearn, aren’t I?

  1. We all yearn. I am personally yearning for a dishwasher, salivating over different makes and models. It’s quite pathetic, actually. 😀

    • And we don’t use ours anymore. It’s easier to just wash the few dishes we have than loading and unloading the dishwasher. No one EVER wanted to unload it.

      • Ack! I would kill for one! You ship me yours and I’ll send DSB up to build you a cabinet in its place! 😀

        • You know … that’s not the worst Idea I’ve heard. We NEED cabinets and you would (probably you wouldn’t, actually) be surprised how hard it is to find a good carpenter. They always seem to live at least a few hundred miles away and are booked through the next millenium!

          • Marilyn, I live in an actual city and it’s hard to find a good carpenter, especially one who does finish work like kitchen cabinets. And talk about expensive! Whenever I do happen to get a dishwasher, my cabinets will have to basically be re-worked because they were custom-made about a million years ago and are very odd, according to DSB. And I can’t believe you don’t use your dishwasher…seems like we always have loads of dishes piled up, even though I do them everyday, although both DSB and I are guilty of using three or four cups a day depending on what we are drinking. 😀

  2. When I sold all my Big camera gear I regressed back to 3 fixed focal lenses, the Fujinon 18mm F/2.0, 35mm F/1.4 & 60mm macro F/2.4. With an APS-C sensor and no moire filter to detract from sharpness I can easily shoot at ISO 6400 with available light. Image quality is King in my way of thinking so the decisions I made for lens choices were guided by that mantra, and 1/2 off the price for those 3 lenses. 🙂

  3. I am still using my Sony Cybershot point and shoot. It is obviously a camera for a beginner like me. It is great for low light filming and I almost never use a flash indoors or outdoors. When and if I graduate to a camera with interchangeable lenses, that might change.
