It looks like we are finally going to get back out in the field to teach and shoot!!!!!  I  have been organizing my gear into bags for each kind of work I do.  The first bag above is my Travel and Americana bag. It contains:


A Fujifilm X-Pro 2 body

16mm f 2.8 lens  (24mm equiv.)

23mm f 2 lens  (35mm euiv.)

27mm f 2.8 lens  (40.5mm equiv.)

35mm f 2 lens  (52.5mm equiv.)

50mm f 2 lens  (75mm equiv.)



This Grab and Go small bag holds my Fujifilm X100V and the Fujifilm converion lens that makes that camera’s lens a 25mm equiv.  The X100V has a 23mm f 2 (35m equiv.) lens.



This is my Extra Lenses bag which holds mostly specialty and fast aperture lenses.


It contains:

8mm Fisheye Rokinon f 2.8

Fujifilm 14mm f 2.8 (21mm equiv.)

16mm f 1.4 (24mm equiv.)

23mm f 1.4 (35mm equiv.)

56mm f 1.3  (84mm equiv.)

60mm Mqcro f 2.5  (90mm equiv.)

90mm f 2  (135mm equiv.)

55-200 f 3.5-4.5  (82.5-300  equiv.)



Finally my Nature, Landscape and Air Travel General Assignment bag.


It contains:

Fujiflm X-H1 body

Fujifilm X-H1 body with battery compartment

10-24 f 4 Wide Angle zoom lens (15mm-36mm equiv.)

16-80 f 4   Mid Range zoom  (4mm-120mm equiv.)

80mm macro f 2.8 ;ens  (120mm equiv)

55-140 Telephoto zoom  (80-210 equiv,)

100-400 f 4.5-5.6 Long telephoto zoom lens  (150-600 equiv.)

TC-14 for 100-400 and the 80mm macro  extends the long zoom to 840mm


The assignment bag is a Think Tank Advantage Rolling bag, all other bags are Domke bags of various sizes.  Each bag also includes cleaning supplies, hex wrenches and spare batteries.


All images were shot with the Fujiflm X-S10 and the 18-55 lens. I plan to add this year a Fujiflm X-T4 to the system.

All lenses are Fujifilm XF Series lenses with the exception of the Rokinon fisheye lens.

    My system sounds very similar with the exception of the telephotos.
    For very light carry I use the X100V.

    For general, Americana and landscape I have narrowed my collection down to a pair of X-T4’s, Samyang Fisheye, 60 macro, 10-24, 16-80 and the new 70-300.

    I have sold off both of my heavy telephotos, primes and other zooms. The 16-80 stays glued on my black X-T4 and the other lenses rotate, as needed, on my silver X-T4. My back is very happy. I have done long day trips with this combo so far and it seems to work for me.

    This my system forever more. (Until something new comes along!!!)

    I notice an L-Plate on all the bodies. What brand are you using, Bill?

    All the best
