    Thanks! The set I posted is split between the Sony 55-210, the Sigma 30mm 2.8 and a Pentax PK-mount 50mm 2.0. The macro shots were taken with the 55-210 or Pentax 50 with a Konica Minolta close-up lens.

    Not being happy with the colours from my DSLR I went back to film about 6 months ago. I love the classic cameras...

    There's nothing quite like medium format hasselblad or cheap full frame camera. Few shots from my trip to Nepal and around my town...

    I felt like making some bad decisions so I have an x100s on order and this thing and a lot of accoutrements arriving.

    I have tried the following cameras (with good lenses where appropriate), first hand, for extended periods of time over the last two months (or longer):

    1. Sony RX100
    2. Fuji X100S
    3. Olympus OM-D EM5
    4. Ricoh GR
    5. Nikon D600

    And, I have tried many other cameras throughout the last 7-8 years, including Leicas, Canons, Nikons, APS-C, Full Frame, 1.3 crop, etc. etc. etc.

    The camera that stands above the rest - for my needs - is the Ricoh GR. Unless you shoot sports, or need (really, really need) exceptional 6400+ ISO quality in huge prints, it is simply put the perfect photographer's tool. It has its negatives, but for style of photography and for what I am after, it is second to none. It's completely customizable (buttons, functions, menus), completely one-hand operational, exceptionally light while being robust, with a gorgeous 28mm lens and no AA filter. The quality of the images are quite frankly mind-bending.

    My two cameras that I am keeping are the Ricoh GR and the Olympus OM-D EM5 with a couple lenses (mostly for photos of my daughter at a distance, like at a play or performance, etc.)

    I cannot say enough good things about the Ricoh GR. :slayer:

    Played around with the Ricoh GR, and it's pretty awesome. Lack of viewfinder killed it for me though. I found it had serious issues at low light. The controls, menus, etc were A++. Ended up ordering an x100s instead, but the GR was pretty rad.

    Which bronica is it? The 6x6 or 645 format? I love square format, especially after getting hasselblad. It's a different experience shooting it and it's great for everything, not just portraits.

    It's an sq-a 6x6. Taking some getting used to; haven't gotten anything developed yet. I'm not used to not having a TTL light meter

    Which lightmeter have you got? I use Sekonic l-308s, 95% of the time in incident mode. It took me awhile to get used to it, but having perfect exposure every single time is something that I enjoy a lot. I'm looking around for a 2nd hand L-758d, since I want a spot meter. As incident mode metering doesn't work too well for slide film.

    Here are a few, while not outstanding, that I'm proud of recently:

    Neat shots! For the first roll through I just used my Nikon FE, which was probably risky but I couldn't wait. The Sekonic I-308 works for you? Haven't invested in a meter yet.
