Re: How not to choose a camera system.

Eventually in 1973 I decided to buy a quality SLR with money I had saved up and went for a Topcon Super DM with 50mm lens which was a bargain at 99 from Cameracraft in Green Lanes, London (usual price 250)... I bought a Minolta Vectis S-1 with a range of lenses. We all know what happened to APS - digital came along and everyone abandoned it, so you can't even buy the film nowadays.

? choice of system was Olympus 4/3rds so I invested in an E1 and over the years added various lenses and cameras. Then Olympus decided to ditch the system for Micro 4/3rds. I was so disgusted I decided not to go down that route.

My choice of mirrorless system was Samsung. I loved the NX30 and eventually added the NX1, which was receiving rave reviews, and a rake of lenses. Then in short order Samsung pulled the plug and ditched camera production altogether so if anything goes wrong with my equipment it's a paperweight.
Haven't recently bought a Nikon, by any chance?

Too much Oly gear.
Panasonic GM5, 12-32, 12-35, 15. Laowa 7.5.
Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.
