    It's quite nice up here today. I ate lunch outside.

    Cogent analysis of the polis' and courts' utter fail in punishing dangerous driving and suggestions on how to improve things:

    I think a lot of us don't really want gaol time for dangerous driving without major consequences, just the morons off the roads.

    Well, I do see the appeal of the full frame A7, but it's rather large, isn't it? One of the reasons I'm keen on these MILC/CSC options is that they are small and light so are good for touring and hiking.

    I couldn't see a 2nd hand A7 for the sort of price you're finding (but I only checked eBay). I will cogitate a bit...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did look at the Sony offerings, especially the a6000, but I had entirely overlooked the full frame ones cos I figured they would be too expensive, especially because of the lenses. I see that you can indeed get a lot of adaptors, but an EF-S one which supports setting the aperture (it is electronically set) is quite pricey - probably more than I paid for the original lens!

    Any thoughts about the lens lineup between Fuji and micro 4/3?

    After many years of not taking pictures, I'm thinking about having another crack. Currently I have a Canon 350D + 50mm f/1.8 but I don't really feel locked into the Canon ecosystem. I am rather tempted by these newfangled mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. Based on a quick browse I like the sound of both the Olympus OM-D E-M10 II and the Fujifilm X-T10.

    Plan A is that I resume photography a bit more seriously and acquire a handful of lenses and eventually (2-3yrs) a fancier body. Plan B is I use this with the kit lens for general snapping. I reckon the odds are currently 80:20 A:B

    I would appreciate the hive mind's opinions, particularly regarding the range of lenses in the two systems esp primes at the cheaper end of the spectrum. I am pretty ignorant regarding what is available. Current budget around £600 for body+lens. Internet has EM10 + kit zoom for £400 and a few plausible looking lenses around £200 but I'm going to Shenzhen & Hong Kong in a few months so might be able to get for a fair bit less there.

    I got my wife a wooden leg for Christmas. It wasn't her main present, just a stocking filler.

    My house more than likely predates BS anything, but I am well aware that ceiling joists have a much smaller design load to support than floor joists. Professional advice is probably necessary, rather than all youse internet experts! :P
