Terrible attack of GAS

Have just bought,,, wait for it;
Item 1 E5.
Item 2 50-200 swd.
Item 3 Ec 14.
Item 4 HLD 4.
Item 5 FL 50.
Oh my lord what a steep learning curve I have undertaken. After an E 510 I expect to be on quite a journey.
When I said " I need something to carry it in," they gave me a cardboard box!!

Re: Terrible attack of GAS

Ahh, I see! I falsly assumed 2950 would get you all this stuff new. And I wondered, why anybody would purchase a FL-50 instead of FL-50R, if money seems not to be an issue ...?!

Enjoy your great kit,
Falk

Re: Terrible attack of GAS

I did have a strict bidget of 3000 tops so some compromises had to be made.

Re: Terrible attack of GAS

I too have a strict budget of 3000.

...or less.

Now I want to see some side-by-side E-5 & e-510 crops illustrating resolution and dynamic range.
That'll be all nostalgic.
Dragonfly's seem popular all of a sudden.

A nice comprehensive cardboard box of stuff there.
