I started to update my camera insurance list yesterday, deleting stuff below a certain value/age, and adding new items purchased in the last year. Everything I bought in the last year added up to completely new system, except for the body and VG, but lightweight. I have always had a second body, preferably the same as the first, so they can be rotated to balance shutter actuations, but the second body is no longer a spare - it has its own system. Item__________________Main system_________________Light system Standard zoom_______24-70mm f:2.8 (82mm)______28-75mm f:2.8 (69mm) Wide angle zoom_____15-30mm f:3.5-4.5___________19-35mm f:3.5-4.5 Tele zoom____________75-200 f:2.8-3.5______________100-200 f:4.5 Macro________________105mm f:2.8_________________Set of 69mm 'filters' Ubiquitous fifty_______50mm f:1.4__________________50mm f:1.4 Teleplus DGX_________1.7x__________________________1.4x (primarily to cover gap from 75 to 100mm) Flashgun_____________Metz 44______________________Sony mini gn=20 Everything from the 'Main' list I already had, and everything from the 'Light' list I bought new or new/old-stock (the wide and tele zooms chosen by high rating and weight). Now the crunch bit - I have lost 4mm at the wide end, and 60mm at the tele end - but have reduced my load from 6.5Kg to 3.1Kg, including the bags. Has there been a quality loss? Yes, but nothing that can't be fixed by stopping down a bit - lots of light out here - or 'in post'. Do my back, shoulders and legs appreciate it? Damn' right they do! Just so I don't feel too much like a wimp, has anybody else here done something this drastic, so they can continue to wander over the countryside looking for landscape shots, or along the seashore for the dawn or dusk seascape? Be a man/woman/other, and 'fess up - you'll feel better for it!
