Porst M42 manual camera (ca. 1970)
Canon Ixus (APS
Canon EF Lenses:
Sigma 10-20/4-5.6 EX DC HSM - takes care of most of my wide angle requirements
Tokina ATX 17/3.5 Pro
: nice sharp wide angle lens. A bit slow to focus. Positively crappy lens hood/cap
Canon EF-S 18-55 (only used for reverse macros since getting the 17/3.5 and Sigma 10-20)
Sigma 30/1.4 EX HSM DC
(my most used lens nowadays
Canon 50/1.4 USM (beautiful for portraits
Tamron 28-75/2.8 (bit of a lackdown, my copy is soft wide open, but sharp at f/4.0
(purchased used, f/2.8 speed and bokeh, but f/4.0 price 8))
Canon 28/1.8 USM
: fast, sharp, very similar to 50/1.4, but just not as sharp and fast as the Sigma 30/1.4 EX.
Canon 50/1.8 MKI: Optically identical to the new MKII version, but with metal lens mount and much nicer 'feel'.
Small, sharp, fast, my only reason to upgrade to the 50/1.4 was the higher 'keeper ratio' with the 50/1.4.
If you pay attention to the background in your image (peculiar bokeh of that lens
), it's a great lens.
Carl Zeiss Planar 85/1.4 ... unfortunately I could not get a good adapter to mount this beauty in Rollei QB mount on my 20D
M42 mount lenses:
Jupiter-9 85/2.0 manual M42 lens
Carl Zeiss Jena 135/3.5 Sonnar MC manual M42 lens
Carl Zeiss Jena 135/3.5 Sonnar 'Zebra' manual M42 lens
Tair-3 300/4.5 manual M42 lens (part of 'photo-sniper'-kit)
Manfrotto 3021 Pro tripod w/QR tilt/pan head
Manfrotto monopod w/ QR
Metz MZ40-II with EOS adapter (manual mode only) ... definitely an area of improvement
Tamrac Velocity 7 ... small, inconspicuous, packs the bare necessities
Tamrac Velocity 9 ... great bag, packs all my EOS gear and is still on the small side
