Smile 2012 Wish list

I'll start with mine:

Done deals
- Fuji G670 --> loving it
- Hexar AF --> great camera. 2nd time for me. Will keep this one.

May be
- Nex7, but it'll turn my 35 Cron into a 50, so love to have a wide angle to go with it. Perhaps a 25 mm Biogon.

Enjoying the dream
- A 24mm Elmar to pair with Nex7, instead of the Biogon.
- the latest 50 Lux.
- M9.

What would GAS bring you this year?

Why 24mm Elmar instead of the 25mm Biogon?

Okay I'll dig!

Definitely
5d mkIII or 5dX or whatever it'll be called
canon 50mm ef f1.4 replacement (if it comes this year)

Interested in (but won't necessarily buy)
x-pro1 w/18 & 35
(or)
e-m5 w/14 & 20

Film gear
Darkroom printing gear inc. decent enlarger
Make as many fibre prints as possible!

That's all I can think of for now.. I've been hanging out for the 5d replacement for a while - my wonderful old 5d is getting a bit long in the tooth for a primary camera. It's possible the x-pro1 might replace the DSLR primary depending on how good it is.

Not sure I have any equipment on a list that I'd actually end up with this year. The new 35/1.4 ASPH is on a more long term wish list. And this computer is going to need replacing on the soonish side...

I am hoping to print on some Polywarmtone again before the year is out. The machine has been installed, and the room is being readied. Not sure how long the curing time will be- but this really does trump all the Kodak news of late.

To Get: Maybe a 24mm 1.4 for SLR use. Maybe an X100 if I find an amazing price.

To Move Along: A raft of stuff . . . Gotta get on that.

I am in the process of selling a bunch of stuff. I will be left with just my s95 as my digital camera.

Maybe, the XPro Fuji w/35, or maybe X100, or maybe the OMD w/PanLeica 25.

Or maybe not. I don't know for sure.

A good job, lower unemployment, no war with Iran, Republicans and Democrats get it together, together, and realize WE elect them.

Then, maybe, I'll be able to think clearly about some new gear.

A strange combination, indeed.

This IS a wish list, right?

Simplify and manage. Film for black and white and digital for color.

For the b&w...a Summilux 80mm R lens on the R4. For color, a digital camera that will do what I want for a change.

Get more paying gigs.

Thinning the herd. Simplify,simplify, simplify.

I've heard about some Biogon being wobbly. Whether that's a prevalent problem or not, I probably take a chance on a Biogon if I were to buy a WA. The price difference between it and the Elmar is a bit much for me.

Exactly what I'm doing as well. I'm putting my DSLR up for sale very soon. Once that's gone, all I'll have left for digital is the old LX-3.

Honestly, what I most want from 2012 is a way to end my incessant GAS and be content with a really well-rounded film and digital collection that I now have.

More than anything, GAS drives me bat crazy. I hate myself for spending more time that I should coveting and researching gear when I could be spending that time making more photographs.

So my wish list for 2012:

-An end to my GAS

Ciao!

More power to you Trevor if you can end GAS. Good to see some of us are trying to get out of it.

I'd done that myself. For over a year I concentrated on shooting with one M camera and one lens, all the while spending nothing on new gears until a few weeks ago.

With only one config available, I started to feel I needed to expand my gear chest a bit to grow as a photographer. Whether that's a self delusion or not remains to be seen, but I'm enjoying the new gears quite a bit and the pent-up desire is gone at least for now.

With all these folks wanting to clean their cupboards, it's too bad we're all scattered across the globe; imagine the swapmeet RFF could have!

With a flash and a tripod I'll be set. (I already have the X100.)

The only other thing I'd like to do is sell a Fed 2 so that I can repair or replace my Zorki C and shoot some film.

Getting to enter the university I want to go to. Tough, as my mark is +- what they ask for and it's not quite sure. I hope...

Photography wise, getting to shoot more; if time allows. Seems to me that 2012 will be more interesting than last year.

And important, to get this damned recession kicked out; but it seems that it likes to be here and won't get better for quite a while.

I already got my one of the stuff on my 2012 wish list - a 28 asph. Elmarit. Now my next one is more modest, a tripod! I am planning on a different kind of photography this year, so I need it.

I want to pick up a 50 / 1.5 Nokton this year & maybe replace my 25 & 35 Biogons with a 28 Summicron.

Might look into an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra as well, or other portable strobe / battery pack combination. This will depend on a range of factors though, as I'm likely moving to London (from Sydney, Australia) for work mid-way through the year, so the purchase of this will depend on finances & will probably only occur once I'm over there, to save on the shipping.
