I'm going to be looking for a mirrorless something ILC. I find that although I still really like my Pentax gear, I just can't hold it for long without getting pain in my wrists so I need to sell it all. Bummer, really, its good stuff. I'm even having trouble with the Panny FZ1000, which is as large as my K5, but a bit lighter.Yup. Been there, had it cleaned, got a message that first time sensor cleaning was done as a courtesy, but officially it fell outside the warranty because it was not a weather proofed camera and this thing should be protected from the elements and dust. Next time I'd have to pay for it, and I should preferably carry the camera in a case. Which I now do, in the ridiculously large leather never ready thing Panasonic created for it, and which totally negates the advantages of a pocket sized camera. I still like the camera, but seem to prefer to carry the Pen F with 17 nowadays.
Mu43 has many small ILCs. The Pen F, the GX85, EM5II, etc. are all pretty small compared to the the DSLRs. Fuji XT10/20 is also pretty small.I'm going to be looking for a mirrorless something ILC.

I enjoyed following your project over the month Marlof, well done
Very well done, Marlof - and giving meaning to everyday observations is something we should do more often. At the beginning, I failed to see the appeal and purpose of it, but your images were impressive, and very soon, they really started to grow on me. It's well worth carrying the project through!As promised: day 31 is a collage of the previous 30 photographs.

thirty days of gas by Marlof Bregonje, on Flickr
A bit of a background on this project: I am fascinated with human influence on landscapes. I know a filling station is probably not the most attractive subject for most people. My thesis was that the repetition of such a subject could add meaning, and even change your perspective on the single images. If I've proven that is up to the viewer.
And of course, these months once started to cure us from GAS.
The end product will probably be a book. You can find a PDF version (it's big: ca. 60 MB) in my OneDrive.
I had this combination for many years. I may still have the 40 tucked away somewhere. It may explain my attraction to the Panasonic 20 1.7 and the Fuji XF27 2.8, both of which have the 40 mm equiv. focal length and small cameras like the Pen F and X-T10.One more from the X-E1 + Rokkor 24mm/2.8. For this final day of January 2017, I share the camera I will be using in our next photo challenge, beginning tomorrow on sister site ForeverFilm. I call it FiF - Film in February - although the name isn't official. In this image, the Pentax MX is sporting my mint condition Tokina 17mm/3.5, which I received just yesterday. A few test images have shown this lens to be as nice as I hoped, although I plan to use it mostly with my X-T1. For the film challenge, I will mostly use a Pentax-M 40mm/2.8. It has been a fun ride with you folks, and there have been many top notch images shared over the last 31 days. 'Till next time.
