    LA-EA4 arrived so I can give the aging Minolta glass a workout! Pleasantly surprised how small it actually is when fitted.

    I said I was done buying for a while but I now have a Pro Runner 450 AW II. The only bag I could find to fit everything in :rolleyes:

    I need to go back and find something smaller too I think as I couldn't carry this long :p. I would like something just big enough to fit the 24-70 and 70-200 with a couple of pockets.

    I’ve got the thinktank retrospective 7 for that for when I want to go light with up to 3 lenses. Can’t recommend it enough

    Been given a Canon AV-1. An old FD mount 50mm 1.8 and a 80-200mm Komuranon lenses (3x tele added as an experiment). Works perfectly, not sure what I'm going to do with it. Clean it up and learn how to use it I guess.

    Old Minolta AF 135mm f2.8 for the A7II, a lens I've always wanted to try and finally picked one up at the right price.

    £122. Picked it up from philnortonphotography.co.uk - he is an ambassador for NISI in the UK. VERY responsive, has a FB Page for his site, replies pretty quickly if you're interested. As you've seen in the other thread, it produces excellent results, I am very pleased :)

    In terms of cheapness, I think its relative. I have been wanting a 10 stop filter since I borrowed one back in 2013 to go to Iceland from a member here. So it has been a long time coming.

    The expensive bit is now I want ND Grads and what not and they're all £122 a pop :o

    Also its nice to know you have systems like the "Old Wine Country" setup which make this look cheap!
