Well, despite all my vows not to make this about equipment, I bought a new camera. Not just a new camera, but an entirely new system. Its an Olympus OMD EM1 Mark II which is a micro four thirds type camera. The advantage of micro four thirds is that you get high quality with compact size and light weight, along with a wide, very wide, selection of lenses and accessories. Here's a few examples: a portrait, fourth of July fireworks, an artist's studio, a very handsome cat, another portrait, and a nature photo of a footbridge over a stream in dappled light.
