What's your 2014 1 camera, 1 lens setup?

I think mine will be the EPL1 with Hexanon AR 40/1.8 in the high contrast b/w art mode.

One thing about this mode is that the auto exposure functions rarely work, the dynamic range is minimal. But the feeling from the output is highly organic.

I guess I have a few more days to decide.

I will probably get myself a Rolleiflex TLR, maybe a 2.8E. But I would have a hard time to put aside the XPan and Mamiya 6 for the whole year. So let's see.

My 2014 combo will be Zeiss Ikon ZM with Biogon 35/2 and thinking of the 365d project...

If I was going to take the plunge (1 camera, 1 lens for a whole year), I'd have to choose between the X-Pro1 with 35/1.4 or the X100s. Hmmm....

Leica III f.

It's at YYe getting a CLA, new shutter curtains and beam splitter.

Summicron 50 mm SM lens.

Although I just bought a III C. Maybe that one as a backup.

Making a push for M9 and 50mm Elmar-M.

Love the incredible compact setup, added a gordy wriststrap and grip.

For me, it will be the X100s. In the process of trading in my D7000, 16-85 and SB700 for the 100s. I've lusted after this camera for a long time, wondering if a fixed 35mm equivalent would work. I finally decided it would.

Looking forward to using this little gem. I ordered it from Samy's Camera to save on the sales tax (i'm in NY)

Best
Paul

I was wanting it to be my OM-1n with the 21mm f/3.5 Zuiko. However, ever since the 2013 Christmas Giveaway, I cannot put this XA3 down (35mm f/3.5 Zuiko). I think I'm in love!

I'm looking forward to trying this idea out with a CLE / 40mm M-Rokkor combo. However I'm also realistic enough to recognize that I likely won't be camera-monogamous this year.

Pentax MX and 28/3.5 Pentax-M. Just for a change from rangefinders.

Incidentally, there's no logical reason why I should prefer it to my OM1n and 50/1.8 - the bodies are much the same - but perhaps it's that MX shutter release that seems to be so well-synchronised with my picture-taking reflexes that taking a picture becomes one single action that ends with that precise and perfectly defined clunk.

On the other hand it might be because in the 1970s and later I spent many many happy years just with a screw-mount Pentax SP1000 and a 28/3.5 Super Takumar, using Tri-X and Kodachrome 25, occasionally using a Super Takumar 55/2.0. It was all I needed then, and perhaps it's all I need now.

Hmmm, for personal work it would have to be my M4-2 and 35mm pre ASPH Summilux.
Loaded with Tri-X.

I always start with great intentions but my ADHD personality seems to get in the way. I worked for 20 years with my K1000 and M50/2 but since I started picking up other cameras I can't seem to stay with only one for very long.

But, my Christmas present to myself this year was a Leica Null Series replica. I have really been enjoying the enforced change of pace so I am going to start the year using the Leica O. The lens choice is pre-determined.

I am going to work with ISO 400 film since the 3.5 maximum aperture on one end, and the 12 minimum on the other with the Anistigmat provides big limitations. I have a lot of Arista EDU Ultra on hand as well as some Tri-X. I also have a lot of EK XX which is very flexible and can easily be used between ISO 200 and 800.

As usual I have too many choices.

M2 & 35/2.8 Summaron. This combination has been my companion since October 2013 and shows no sign of slowing down.

Thanks Helen, it's the combo my admirers do the most admiring from
Ricoh GXR-M with VF-2 viewfinder, a Leitz LTM -> M adapter, Voigtländer Heliar 2.0/50mm nickel lens.

Tack sharp high-key, high-contrast portraits, it's close to a signature look, I'd say...

Sold more stuff today, in line with my 2014 resolutions of clearing shelves, to end up in the new year with:

M4-P - 50mm - f/1.2 for film and
M9 - 35mm - f/2 for digital.

(secretly keeping the 28mm elmarit asph hidden in my pocket though... for those moment.)

I did just this for a lot of 2013. Great combination in every way. I won't be sticking to just this in 2014 though. Maggie's C Biogon 35 is a strong option for me too, and there's no way my stealth black MM and tabbed Summicron will sit on the shelf. Or even my Rolleiflex. I like Pioneer's plan with the Leica 0.
