After unpacking most of our things, I had planned to assemble all the gear in one grand photo shoot. It would include two Qs, two X-5, K-5 K-5iis and K-01 bodies, a goodly number of primes and several manual and autofocus zooms. Alas, one box is missing - so the second Q and Hanimar 400mm (along with who knows what else, as that box was packed almost a year ago) is unavailable.
Part of the motivation for a group shot is that it's just 2MS (too much stuff) and a goodly amount of it will be leaving soon. I can no longer justify assembling a great kit that only shoots yard images. We make plans often to go places and see things, but when those don't happen the gear does nothing but sulk in a corner of the house and call me a gear collector not am image maker. My plea is No Contest.
The K-01 will be leaving first as the deal is essentially concluded. A few primes will depart (still debating this one) and the 18-250 plus manual zooms, leaving the 28-90 and 100-300 Quantarays and an 18-55WR to do the zoom work. Which K-5 variant stays is also up in the air. My wife will decide whether she prefers Q or X-5 for her shooting, and I will keep a copy of her choice as well.
Pentax has a new camera in the rumor mill, a small-body K-S1; if it pans out for specs I may let both K-5 bodies go and take the small route instead. I continue to seek the ideal smaller camera (most recently picking up a Nikon 1J1 - 2MS strikes again!) so perhaps the new Pentax can serve all needs at once?
As I so often say, we shall see.
