I also get a kick out of the two shots where Surapon is in the picture in shadow silhouette with his cameras sticking out of the shadow and away from his front. Cool!

I have lived in very humid places for years and never worried about it, but you have to understand the causes to prevent any issues. The best way to prevent fungus is to use your gear, sunlight stops the problem. If you have to store stuff or use it intermittently then this is the most economical and fun solution I have come across.
As for the DR and color, that's precisely why I want an EVF: I want to compose using what the sensor can see, so I have a better idea of the final image. This is another plus for EVF.
So you want a better idea of what the in-camera JPG conversion will look like, if displayed on an uncalibrated monitor with low resolution and a poor color gamut? Sounds like a big minus for EVF to me, particularly for anyone who shoots RAW...
Looks like the 100mm non-L macro is what others are using
RL, do you have a favorite set of ND filters you typically like to carry? Everything takes up space and weight so I figure you have 2 or 3 that you use that work best and offer the most versatility. I've put off buying these because I figured I would eventually just purchase a variable ND filter from probably Singh-Ray with some filter adapters. But of course that's expensive so I keep putting it off. Thoughts?
For my NDs, it's all LEE filters. My polarizers are all B+W screw on and combining both together get me what I need.
1. 2 stop pro glass LEE ND.
2. 10 Stop glass Big Stopper LEE ND.
3. 2 stop resin hard and soft edged LEE NDs.
4. All the wide angle adapter rings.
If I use a polarizer, I use B+W Kaesmann x-s slim mount filters then the Lee system on top. It works pretty well @ 17mm with some slight vignette but disappears by 19mm. I have no vignette if I just use the LEE system alone.
Good filters are worth the cash and actually hold some value over time. I like to buy once and use them for years instead of cheaping out and getting something subpar and having to buy again. I don't have experience with Singh ray filters and Don't own a variable ND.
My last post to wrap up this thread. A final goodbye to the 17-40L for me and looking back at some of my favorite photos it captured before it's sold on evilbay.
How do you transfer images? With a card reader, you generally see the folder architecture, so you'd see the '101' folder.
Personally, I have extra cards - the card with the images doesn't get formatted until the set is at least triaged (so I know it's complete) and stored on the internal SSD and at least one external HDD.
