Thanks for the friendly welcome.
I know enough about photography to know that I really don't know very much, despite about 40 years experience! ;-)
I do some domestic interiors photography for estate agency, but for my own interest I like a mix of landscape (I do many rural walks), architectural, street, and a little nature oriented.
I now favour making my kit as simple and minimalist as possible... looking for the ideal all round camera!

G'day mate

Another 'Welcome aboard' to the forum - you'll find heaps of others here who are enthusiastic about 'photography' as well as 'camera' :)
ps- you say that your desire is for "minimalist" ~ years ago I abandoned SLRs and went for fixed lens superzooms (now using Panasonic only) and have never regretted it. One camera, all-in-one, all the features one could ever ask for ... beaudy-mate

Thanks for the info, Phil. I'm definitely interested in superzooms, especially if I can get something that includes a fairly wide angle for doing interior room shots (plus a hot-shoe). I was put off Panasonic by the complicated menu system of my Lumix GX80, but another member assures me that every camera's menu structure is different from the next, even from the same manufacturer. If you've experience with more than one Panasonic maybe you can comment?
Cheers
Stewart

Stew ... I have made 5 attempts to send the following PM without success so here it is 'public'
G'day mate

Before I go off into options and settings and all that stuff, maybe you can help via giving me some idea as to your shooting style, subjects and 'where do your pics end up'? ie: are you selling? do you need a specific sensor size of a specific reason? what lenses you have & use at the moment

You may find it easier to chat off-line via email ... "Phil Jones"<Ozzie_Traveller@Yahoo.com>
Hope this helps

Phil

Roger - I get the msg "Msg too long - over 420 characters"
