Sorry to hear your news, you are making a noble sacrifice and a shame we won’t be seeing any more of your outstanding macro images. Hopefully you get the best prices and in the future maybe things will improve and you can replace the kit.

Thanks everyone.
Thanks to some advice, I'm going to try and hold onto the macro gear, and drop back to apsc so I may still be around.
So if anyone has a k5iis, k3 or k3ii they're not using and fancy trading against any of the above. Just let me know.

Thanks everyone. It's very heart warming to read these.

I think I have a way to raise enough funds for now without losing all my gear.
For now,
Deals nearly sorted on
K1
15-30mm
135mm
If anyone has a 100mm filter system we could do a partial trade for the 150mm set.

It was quite a shock to read your post Derek.

It's hard to know what to say other than it has obviously hit you hard. You seem a strong, determined person with a massive positive attitude which will
hopefully carry you through this difficult time. My thoughts are with you and your family...all the very best and I hope your very inspiring fund raiser is
hugely successful.

I hope you're able to keep something that will allow you to continue posting here as otherwise the site and forum will be greatly diminished by your absence...
your landscapes, bugs and experimental light stuff have been truly inspirational to me personally and i'm sure to many more people on the site.

All the Very Best...

The number of posts here must tell you the regard in which you are held Derek. I'm sorry about your sad loss and wish you well. You'll be missed.

Cheers everyone.
It's looking like I'll still be around.
With my own old k3ii and a few lenses.
Tbh my concern is for my daughter, and in all fairness is there anyone here that wouldn't do whatever was needed to try and make sure that everyone was alright.
I think she'll be ok, just going to be a long road for her.
In all honesty, it's a great forum we have here, with a huge community spirit which is invaluable.
Much appreciated everyone. 👏👏👏👏👏

"Oh no... He's not going.. He'll be posting more of those damn bugs. I cant match.....!! Nearly as bad as those other guys that do the trains...." Lol Great news Derek... It wouldn't have been the same. K3ii isn't that much of a step back.
