Thanks - I often have the 7.5 on the Olympus Air A01... either connected to iPhone or shooting "blind"

I was considering an Air A01 just to stick my Rokinon 7.5 on for blind shooting too. Maybe next time Olympus has the 20% off coupon in their reconditioned products in the US I'll grab one. I always wondered if there was a way to stick a hot shoe mounted optical finder on there that would represent a 35-50mm equivalent field of view but abandoned the idea once I priced some of those old optical finders.

I really missed the small size of my E-P5 and 17/1.8. My E-M1 and L bracket and 12-40 just seems big at times. I was shopping for a small Olympus body and 17/1.8 when I ran across a good deal on a Fuji X100s today. New gear picks should be up in a couple of days.

Looks great looking camera and fantastic shot (y) Can see you're also into the peak design straps. I really like the easy swapping between neck and wrist strap
I decided to give Peak design almost exclusive rights.
I have the sling, slide lite, cuff and a clip on the way.

So do we count the X100s as mirrorless or does this go in the Point and Shoot forums? :D

You'd think I was old enough to know that I shouldn't take a nap right before it's time to go to bed, and then to not drink a cup of coffee after said nap

Since I'm awake I took a picture, inspired by Brian's Fuji shot. Mine's not nearly as well executed. Here's some camera porn for your late night enjoyment. My m4/3 AF prime kit. The Panasonic/Lumix GX85 with the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 mounted. Clockwise from the right is 15mm f/1.7, the 25mm f/1.4, and the 42.5mm f/1.2

That 75mm is a bit of a 'God' lens isn't it.

It's very good, though each of these lenses have their own unique way of rendering a scene. The 15 is more contrasty and uber sharp wide open, the 25 has the prettiest OOF rendering, and is just special in the way it draws a picture. The 42.5 is equal to the 75 in every way, not to mention being a stop faster. It and the 25 are my indoor goto lenses, the 15 and 75 go out for walks with me.

Yes, whilst I don't have the 15 and 42.5, I do have the 25 and you're absolutely right. It's obviously not a real Leica but there is something about the way it renders an image for sure.
