The Gear I’m Bringing to Tokyo Japan:
It’s that time again…vacation time lol. This time around, I’m going back to Tokyo. I haven’t been in a few years, and quite frankly, I miss it. I miss the sounds, the smells, the lights, and the amazing food! This time around, I am going to try Fugu (puffer fish sushi). Wish me luck :). I’m also bringing a couple of things with me to review.
One of the items that I will be reviewing is the Leica M10. I really need to thank Bergen County Camera, and the Leica rep for this. I haven’t really touched an M since I bought my SL, and I haven’t really had much time to use it yet, so it’ll probably take a little getting used to again. But I must say, it does feel like an old friend. It is an absolutely beautiful camera, and I can’t wait to use it. I will be bringing three lenses with me: the 35mm Summicron ASPH, the 18mm Super Elmar, and my favorite M lens, the 50mm Summilux ASPH. A simple, light kit that should basically cover all my bases for street photography in Tokyo.
The other item that I am reviewing is the new Hadley Small Pro. I’ve been using this bag for a little bit, and it is a perfect match for the M kit. It is also a fantastic bag. I have the original Hadley Small, and I have to say, I love the Pro version’s improvements. My first impressions post will come next week, so stay tuned.
As for reviews, I know I said I would finish the Fuji reviews before I leave but I just didn’t have the time. My apologies, I’ve been really busy but in the next couple of months, you will see why :). So, please bare with me, those reviews will come after I return. I will also write up my Leica 90mm APO Summicron-SL ASPH review. I will have plenty of examples in that review. I’ve been really working on getting good pics for that lens review :).
As always, thanks for stopping by! I will try to update stuff here while I am gone. As I said, I will post a first impressions of the new Hadley Small Pro. I will post a lot of stuff from Tokyo on Instagram, so if you haven’t yet, you can join me there too :). Take care!
