Current digital kit: Canon 5DII and Fuji X-Pro1. Slightly different lenses for each. I have a wide-angle on the Fuji and 50mm for the Canon. Both have 40mm pancakes but the Fuji is like a compact camera with that attached and that's for ultimate portability. Weirdly I like the same focal length less on that camera though.

If I'm dreaming: Leica M10 and MM. I'd probably want 35mm and 50mm lenses. A 28mm eventually, maybe. I don't shoot much wide-angle. I would happily trade my current kit for one Leica and 35mm. I'm having a slight issue with Leica lust at the moment.

My current kit consists a 1Dx and 1DsIII. The 1DsIII only has 35K shots on it so I may wait to upgrade. I would then add another 1Dx or 1DxII.

Updating mine, as I've changed a few things, sold some cameras, bought some, etc.

Currently using 1DIII for my action and birds/wildlife/weather​.
For the rest, I now just take a Fuji X100S when I want minimal kit (truly minimal), and for formal stuff when I am taking kit, it's a Fuji X-T1 system with lighting and several lenses.

So, Canon and Fuji side by side.

Very best,

I have a T4I and a 6D. My rule of thumb, if I am going on a plane I take my crop (smaller and lighter) travelling by car I opt for my 6D and external flash. Works for me.


CANON 6D | 77D | 50mm 1.8 II | 28mm 2.8 | 85mm 1.8 USM |15-85 f3.5-5.6 IS USM | 70-300L f4-5.6 IS USM | 24-105L f4 IS USM | 17-40L f4 USM |18-200 f3.5-5.6 IS | 55-250 IS STM | 10-18 f4.5-5.6 IS STM | Flashpoint TTL Zoom Speedlight

I don't ever carry two bodies, any more. Depending on what I'm shooting, I take either 6D or 80D. If I could afford a 5D4, I'd only need one camera.

Well, it seems things have changed a bit. I will be back to carrying two cameras once the weather is decent for outside work. I've had a desire to shoot some film for a few months, and just about have my 'new' gear setup.

Camera #1:
Elan 7NE. I can use all my EF lenses on this one.

Camera #2:
Yashica FX-D, 28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.9, 135mm f/2.8, 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5.

The bag fits both bodies and maybe two lenses for each, depending on which lens I grab. I can't wait to see if there is any discernible IQ difference between say, my $10 Yashica 135 and the $800 135L, both shot on Fuji film. My guess is not much.

Really kind of depends on what I am shooting. If it is wildlife, I take both 5D IVs, one with the f/4 600mm MII and a 1.4 Mark III extender and the other with the 200-400 f/4 EXT lenses. If I am shooting landscape, then I take my 11-24 and my 24-70. Otherwise, for normal everyday stuff, the 24-70 stays on one body and the 70-200 on the other. I still need to get a filter kit for the 11-24, but they are outrageously expensive, since they mount from behind the front of the lens (and use bigger filters!).

Not sure what you are referring to. Can you clarify? I don't think it was unclear on what I take or why. If you are referring to my decision not to purchase the filter kit for the 11-24, it's because I retired early due to health reasons and really don't need it right now.

I just thought the perspective on the cost of the filters was a bit humorous after listing about $25,000 worth of camera gear. Just HOW EXPENSIVE are those filters?

I wrote and re-wrote several replies and then deleted them. Your condescending tone with regard to my purchases was enough. How I spend my money now is my decision and mine only. The original title of the thread was "What is your favorite two-camera body combination?" and I thought I answered that. With regard to your final question, the filter holder is about $350 and each filter is 180mmx180mm and runs $300-$400. Since I already have a heavy investment in 100mm Lee filters, I just didn't see the purpose of adding more filters or carrying more filters. Enough said on this.....
