    MM that looks a bit OTT, can't find a price though and those bags make Billingham's look like a paupers choice.

    I think the iPad is essentially a bow on the package.

    It's eleven grand at Harrods. I admit that I have all save one of the lenses, and I don't have the flash, but otherwise, I'm pretty much there.

    Here's a game - what would you put in YOUR case...?

    It's funny - I have the ugly version of all of that. As in a black Pelican case and a beat-up Domke. In my pelican case:

    - X100
    - XT1
    - 1 spare battery for X100 and 2 spares for XT
    - Chargers for both, and 1 electrical cable
    - Some filters
    - 14 f2.8
    - 27 pancake
    - 35 f1.4
    - 56 f1.2


    ...and there's enough room for an 18-55 and a 16 f1.4, maaaybe also a 23 f1.4. At some point the 16 will replace the 14, but the 18-55 is the next one to acquire. 23 would just be overkill / gravy.

    So silly they bundle it with a 16GB tablet with no memory expansion option. Should have at least gone for a 64GB model, it's not like this set is going to be cheap anyway.

    I have a full ยต43 set up so I would give it a miss : 2x GX7 2xEPM2 12mmf2 17mm2.8 25mm1.8 45mm1.8 Olympus's 14mm 2.5 and 20mm1.7 12-32, 14-42x 14-140 40-200 Panasonics and 30&60 2.8 sigmas both Oly Body cap lenses and a Lensbaby tilt shift thing. There are the Oly kit lenses some place too, half the lenses came with bodies and worked out free, I really need to reduce the number. A think tank and Billingham bags to hold it all, I just wondered what it would cost.

    I spent more than that on my first Digital SLR with a few Nikkor lenses. It's worth about $50 now.

    I'd put in an X100 and 10 Grand :biggrin: and then disappear for awhile.

    "vulcanised fibreboard"?

    Is that as cheap as it sounds?

    sawdust and glue is not cheap.....and then they add some sort of rubber? Sounds 'spensive.

    I want one made from unobtainium and Alien hide. Bet that would be unobtrusive and wear well. Rumour is Sigourney Weaver has one as a handbag...

    Bill,

    2_camera_solution_006_Medium_.JPG

    I consider myself astonishingly blessed: I would put in my case what I actually have in my case:the FZ200 for its 1200mm (e) reach with stabilization and the LX100 for its see in the dark capabilities. Two EVFs show me pretty much what the sensor is seeing, and no lens changing or exposed sensors for me. And, like they said in the Mazda commercials: "zoom-zoom." In short, with those two, I am a lean, mean, picture-taking machine. . .

    Now, if you could please direct me to a shop where I can buy generous supplies of talent and competence, I'll be all set.:biggrin:

    Not incidentally, I get change back from my eleven grand.

    Cheers, Jock

    Take out all the Fuji gear and replace it with Leica, cover the case with exotic leather in red, violet, and grey. Then bump up the price 10x. Oh and up the iPad to 128g for free!
