  1. Truly impressive list of equipment. While the OMD is not going to beat your Mark 3, you’ll definitely get competitive results especially considering the smaller form factor. You’ll find your T1i and Nex 3 not so attractive anymore too.

    • Believe me I am a light weight compared to some other photographers. I have four choices in terms of bags for any outing with my dSLR. The Lowepro 400AW fits everything and I use it for extended trips. The smaller bags I use for all my local stuff. I usually take my camera with the versatile 24-105mm attached, then if I need reach, grab the 70-200. If I am shooting landscape, I grab the 17-40mm along with my set of filters. Manfrotto 055cxpro3 for short outings and the Gitzo traveler for longer treks. All of my portrait stuff (stands and light modifiers) fit in one duffle and I take it for location portrait sessions (mostly family). I am not a big fan of “bring everything just in case” and choose to travel light whenever possible.

      • True, can’t take everything but on car trips you can toss in some extras. Flying in tough. Have to choose wisely. You like the Gitzo? Is it carbon?

      • John, I just recently got the Gitzo and yes it is the carbon version, GT1542t. I have only used it once, but it folds up nice and small, and is super light (2.2 lbs) and stable (not as stable as my full size Manfrotto though). Fully extended it is a bit short, but that is the price you pay for a compact folded size. With the center column fully extended, it reaches eye level for me though (I am 5’11”).

      • Thanks. I have the large RRS carbon which handles the wind well but it’s not easy to travel with. It does just fit in a carry on but takes up half the space. Will take a look at your model.
