Re: u4/3
If you're still looking for the 14 next year, let me know. I'm hoping to add the 7-14 to my kit by then, and my 14 will be redundant.

Re: Florida Trail in Dec/Jan- advice sought on both gear and logistics
My partner and I have done one section of the FT, in Ocala NF, so we're hardly experts (and I hope some of them chime in here.) The Florida Trail Association was very helpful when I called them...

Re: Down Jackets, sooo many options...
I sold my Patagonia and Montbell insulation layers and bought a Western Mountaineering Hooded Flash jacket. It's expensive, but I love it. Well designed, with a great hood, handwarmer pockets, ...

Re: Lumix Micro 4/3 thoughts?
I have the 14/2.5 prime. It's a great little lens, but it's not really necessary if one already has the 14-42 zoom. I got it because I had only the 20mm. I've since added the 45mm Olymp...

We own a pretty good m4/3 kit and use it extensively. +1 on the G-3 camera. It has a built-in very high quality EVF and a better sensor than the GF-2, plus more manual controls. It can be had for $...

Re: rain wrap
Yeah, rain wrap (or rain skirt.) I have a request into the MYOG maker in our house for one. When my nylon hiking shorts get soaking wet, it's hard to stay warm, and rain pants work only in the ...

Re: GX1

Photon Freedom Micro (White)
The newest version is the Photon Freedom To The Max, which uses some sort of new technology in the LED that doubles brightness while not using any more battery power. Nice. The Doug Ritter edition ...
