I am a new follower and love looking at all the kits that all the followers have posted. For many years, I have been the guy on travel that hauls the big Pro DSLRs with a full compliment of lenses. About a year ago I had the opportunity to go to Australia and in an attempt to break the trend, I left the DSLR’s at home an took a Leica M9, Leica M6 TTL and Panasonic GF1. It was difficult at first knowing that I did not have the flexibility of the DSLR’s and all the lenses but at the end of the day, I am so happy I forced myself to do it.
Fast forward to this month (a year later)… I am taking my first trip to Tokyo and I think I have my kit selected for the trip. The following kit is what I have selected thus far. Its a two body kit (I am on the fence on whether or not I am taking the M6 as a third body). The kit is as follows:
- Leica M9
- Sony RX-1
- (Not pictured – Leica M6 TTL)
- M Mount Zeiss Sonnar 1.5
- Leica 35mm 2.5 (Summarit)
- Leica 24mm 2.8 Elmarit
- Tenba Messenger bag. I just picked up the ONA Union Street Messenger bag and I am considering swapping it out.
- Leatherman Multi-tool
- Surefire LED flashlight
- Tiffen filter holder with various ND filters and polarizers.
- Thinktank SD card wallet
- Manfrotto Carbon Fiber Tripod
- (not pictured) Manfrotto table top tripod
- Moleskine Notebook
