I have followed the this thread with interest and I am surprised that there has been no discussion regarding clip on lens for the smartphone. I only mention this because I now use the iPhone as my primary means of taking pictures and am looking to purhase a set of snap on lens for it. So I was hoping to read what others thought about them before I went and bought some.
Anyway if anyone has any knowledge about using them I would be grateful to hear what you think of them.

Doing bird photography means hauling out the Dslr and big lens. It is nice to have both. The 4/3 is a good compromise for one who wants a do it all camera. It is relatively small and can handle a variety of lenses. Plus, with an adapter it can use vintage lenses (like my old Canon FD's) and get great shots.
remphoto... don't get me wrong. I am sold on interchangeable lens cameras, cameras with built-in zoom lenses, and cameras with fixed focal length lenses. I have, and use, them all.

I use a Ricoh GR for street photography. This incredible camera has an APS-C sensor and a fixed (equivalent of) 28mm lens. It's very small with a sleek, clean form-factor... and great IQ.

I also use the Sigma DP Merrill cameras, each of which has a fixed focal length lens. These cameras provide an absolutely stunning image quality, at the price of a little less operational convenience and a quirky, though effective image processing software. For the price, size, and image quality, these cameras are fantastic. For cityscapes, landscapes... the rendered detail is absolutely stunning.

No camera meets all needs well. Thus, depending on the application at hand, there is a huge range of diversely different cameras that may be appropriate.

After 4 years of saving up and 27 gifts cards later I finally got my camera of choice and am thrilled. Been waiting so long the model numbers upgraded several times.

Fuji X100F, its beautiful to look at and hold and still gets good reviews. It reminds me of my dear Opa (Grandpa) whom we would not so patiently pose for as young children. He finally got his final camera, a Leica, at 70 plus years and took lovely photos.

The Fuji is outside my patience level and certainly my skill set. I'm vowing to be patient with myself, use the many online resources and webinars to learn my camera and take beautiful photos with it.

I know the camera has limations regarding zoom but Ive been using my android phone for the last 5 years. I have enjoyed some good photos so I'm really looking forward to a real camera.Click image for larger version
