A Versatile Small Lightweight Camera

200115-074253-JEH20 It is raining today with the temperature at 41 degrees F.  I was hoping for more fog than rain, but that doesn’t seem to be the case this morning.  I therefore chose an older picture that I took just a few days more than two years ago with my Olympus E-M5 III camera and the 14-150mm zoom lens, to rework and use to illustrate a point I needed to make to myself.

I would like to minimize the amount of photography gear that I have, and preferably reduce it down to just one lightweight camera.  I therefore decided to sell them all except for my Fujifilm X100F camera and make it my one and only camera for the future; but, I thought some more.

My types of photography would be limited with only the X100F camera and lens and I wouldn’t be able to continue with various subjects, etc., even though I like the X100F camera better than the Olympus micro 4/3 camera.

As I thought some more about my photography I thought about what I like to do most with my images; i.e., process them and play with different styles and moods, over and over.  To maximize that aspect of photography, I still need a wide variety of images made in all types of weather with a wide range of focal lengths.

I have therefore decided to not sell any of my cameras at this time, but to concentrate on using my Olympus E-M5 III camera.  Depending on how the future unfolds, I may later decide to sell all but my Olympus camera and take on the challenge of getting the most out of it.  I may also purchase some more lenses for it to maximize my opportunities.
