Would you buy the same brand system you have now?

Yep. All I'd change is I'd go FF with a 6D.

The bokeh from that lens is maybe nicer than the bokeh from my 200 2L....

I think I would go for the 50 Cron APO though.

I believe that APO 'Cron was built almost specifically for your MM - as it is capable of showing every little flaw in a lens.
On my M240, the little 50 Summarit I currently have brilliant, I would say its the sharpest lens I have ever used.

Personally I need the speed though, the summilux would probably be enough, but why not go all out ? Not chasing Bokeh or minimal DOF for portraits, more the ability to shoot in the dark at slightly longer distances, recently I have had a few great opportunities for a brilliant photo, but was stuck at f2.5 1/4sec at 6400iso on the M (one was a candlelit church) with nothing to brace against.
Nearly 3more stops of light gets me to 1/30 (a summilux gets me to 1/15)
That kind of darkness is getting to the limits of focusability too - the 1DX gave up focusing in that light

I'd PROBABLY stay with Micro 4/3, but I'd give Fuji a serious look. For sure, I'd be sticking with mirrorless, and I'd be sticking with a system with a rich and varied offering of prime lenses as well as zooms.

It would depend on who had the best full frame with enough money left over for a decent collection of lenses.

My 5D has opened up a whole new world of bokeh and interesting old glass.

I would buy Canon all over again. I believe that their long supertelephoto lenses are the best available anywhere. Plus, the Canon system is in very widespread use, which makes it easy to get parts, service, swap lenses with friends, etc.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I would seriously consider switching to the Fuji X-T1. I might do that sometime next year anyway. The DSLR kit seems to get bigger every time I take it out. If the X-T1 would keep up with my daughter, then I think that I could really love the smaller size of the kit. Being able to use some FD, LTM, and M mount lenses also really intrigues me.


Photography is just a hobby for me.

Would probably consider moving to Fuji X-T1/equivalent.

Of course I would have a different system.

But the system I have now was the right for me when I bought it, and that's what matters.

I'd switch to a system that offers an EVF. Or Nikon for the native film era lens awesomeness..... and Toshiba sensor. Not too comfortable going mirrorless just yet outside of Sony due to the repair horror stories I've heard.
