I went to Maryland with the wife for a little vacation this past week. I had to decide what I wanted to bring with me for camera gear. I wanted to go light and unobtrusive, so I decided that I'd go a bit retro and take a small film body and some fast primes.

My bag was packed with my FM2n, forgoing the MD-12. For lenses I went equally light and fast. I took with me my 24 f2.8D, 35 f1.4 AIS, Zeiss 50 f1.4, and for longer work I took with me my 105 f2.5 AI. A C-P filter rounded out my kit.

For film I had a mix of color print and some slide film. I took only 200 ISO for print, and 100 ISO for slide, allowing for the fast glass to cover the lighting variations. While I didn't shoot much indoors, the lens and film had me covered quite well.

While I will have to wait a bit to get my results back, I was quite happy with my gear selection as it was never a burden to carry and never got the stares and comments I get when carting around my D700 and 24-70 f2.8G lens.

Happy Shooting,

JCA
