Canon daily user kit:

Note: underlined items are my regular use kit.

- Canon Digital SLRs:
EOS 5D Mark II w/BG-E6, EG-D Focus Screen, Arca-Swiss Quick Release plate
EOS 7D Mark II w/BG-E16, A-S QR plate.
EOS 7D Mark II w/BG-E16, A-S QR plate.
EOS 7D w/BG-E7, A-S QR plate
EOS 7D w/BG-E7, A-S QR plate
EOS 50D w/BG-E2N, A-S QR plate, EF-D Focus Screen, WFT-E3A
EOS 50D w/BG-E2N, A-S QR plate, EF-D Focus Screen, WFT-E3A
EOS 50D w/BG-E2N, A-S QR plate, EF-D Focus Screen
EOS 30D w/BG-E2, E1 hand strap, A-S QR plate
EOS 30D w/BG-E2, E1, A-S QR plate
EOS 10D w/BG-ED3, E1, A-S QR plate
Six BP511/BP511A per camera: 10/30/50D, five chargers.
Four LP-E6 per camera: 5D Mk II, 7D & 7DII, six chargers.
Note: I really like pairing up 1.6X and FF cameras. The 7D or 7DII is a very good matchup with the 5D MkII - thanks to shared battery tech, same memory cards, similar control layout, features, etc. I struggled with learning the AF system on 7D, but learned to get consistent results! There's a similar, though not quite as steep, learning curve with the even more complex AF system in 7DII.

- Canon Film SLRs:
EOS-3 w/PB-E2, E1 grid screen, A-S style QR plate
EOS-3 w/PB-E2, E1 grid screen, A-S style QR plate
(have also used and/or owned: Elan 7E aka EOS 33 elsewhere in the world, A2E, 1VHS & others)

- Prime lenses:
EF 20/2.8
EF 28/1.8
EF 50/1.4
EF 85/1.8
EF 135/2L
EF 300/4L IS (two), A-S style QR plate
EF 300/2.8L IS, camo LensCoat, A-S style QR plate
EF 500/4L IS, camo LensCoat, A-S style QR plate

Possible future Primes:
- EF 14/2.8L II (the jury is still out if I even need so wide a lens, I might opt for the much cheaper manual focus/manual aperture Rokinon/Samyang/Bower, since I expect this would be a lightly used lens)
- EF 24/2.8 IS USM
- EF35/2 IS USM
- EF 200/2L I.S. (Oh yeah! I'll beg borrow or steal for this one eventually!)
- EF 800/5.6L I.S. (Yeah, right! Not likely until the Lotto comes thru for me. Just dreamin')

- Specialty Lenses (Macro, Tilt-Shift):
EF 100/2.8 USM Macro (non-IS), t'pod ring B, A-S style QR plate, hood
EF 180/3.5L Macro, t'pod ring, A-S style QR plate, hood
Tamron SP 60/2.0 Macro/Portrait with hood
MP-E 65mm with t'pod ring, A-S QR plate, lens hood
Tamron SP 90/2.5 Macro (manual focus/aperture, Adaptall-2, chipped/focus confirm)
EF 24/3.5L TS-E (first version) hood (two hoods: OEM and rubber/flexible)
EF 45/2.8 TS-E with hood

possible future specialty lenses:
- EF 17/4 TS-E Tilt Shift (oh yeaaaahhh! gotta get it! looking for an excuse or a job that will require it so I can build it into the price.)
- EF 90/2.8 TS-E (eventually... when I have a job that needs it, I'll get it)
- Venus Laowa 15mm f4 Macro/Shift lens.

- Zoom lenses:
EF-S 10-22mm (just purchased used, wanted to compare w/the Toki)
Tokina 12-24/4 (which works to 18mm on full frame, by the way).
EF 24-70/2.8L
EF 28-135/3.5-5.6 IS (backup for the 24-70)
EF 28-135/3.5-5.6 IS (yes, two of them, these are nice, light "walk-around" lenses and great loaners, too)
EF 70-200/2.8L IS (first version) w/A-S style QR plate
EF 70-200/4 IS w/tripod mounting ring B
EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Mark II, Hejnar Photo Tripod foot, Lens Coat.
Sigma 28-70 (only usable on the EOS-3 and 10D, it's older AF chip causes errors w/later DSLRs, but it cost me all of $8 used)

Note: I'm mostly a prime lens shooter, but there are times when a zoom is essential. Considering getting a Sigma 70-200/2.8 OS when it comes out, to have a backup for the Canon. The 120-400 Siggy is interesting, too.... altho I'm concerned about frequency of repair reports, though. I'm not a fan of push/pull zooms so have largely ruled out the Canon 100-400. Eventually I'm sure I'll upgrade to the EF 24-70/2.8 II and EF 70-200/2.8 IS Mark II, but I'm not in a rush to do so. I am very impressed with the Canon EF 200-400/4L IS USM 1.4X... except for the price! Still, it might replace several pricey primes.

Canon EOS M5 with Arca-compatible L-bracket

Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN lens very nice short telephoto
Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 II lens... another superb lens, but manual focus and I needed AF.
Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Macro lens vintage manual focus/aperture, 1:2, Adaptall2 EF-M mount.

Daily user point 'n' shoot:

- P&S Cameras:

Canon PowerShot G5 - Sweet little camera and easy for a Canon shooter to learn to use. Only 5MP, but shoots RAWs (some later G-series don't!). ISO is somewhat limited (400 max, and that's not all that "clean"). Purchased for $40. Strap & cap but no battery. No worries, I have plenty of BP511s. Plenty of 1GB and 2GB CF cards, too. I like that this camera uses CF memory! Also got the matching Canon 1.75X (TC-DC58N) tele conversion lens for another $6. It cost me about $12 that to get the adapter tube (LA-DC58B) to be able to fit the conversion lens. More recently I've bought the Canon wide conversion lens, too (WC-DC58N, approx. 0.7X) for about $35. It's kind of silly... The conversion lenses are about as big and heavy as the camera itself! And the viewfinder is no longer usable, once the conversion lens is installed. Might get a 220EX or similar flash to use with it, too. The built in flash is pretty wimpy and drains the batteries pretty fast.

Canon Powershot A640 - with WP-DC8 underwater case (40M/130ft), ACK-600 AC power adapter kit. I got the UW case locally used for $7, so had to track down and buy the camera to use in it! Luckily it came with some useful accessories. It shares the WC-DC58N and TC-DC58N conversion lenses with the G5, though it needs a different LA-DC58F adapter tube with them. Nice little 10MP camera. Can't shoot RAWs, though. It also can't be used with a hot shoe style flash. I'm looking for an underwater slave-triggered flash to use with it.

Canon PowerShot A510- all of 3.2MP! 4X zoom. It was used, a little beat up... and all of $26. I figured what the heck! Besides, Maria Sharapova has a really cute dog with a French accent and she's far hotter than Ashton Kutcher can ever hope to be. He's funnier, though.

No wonder people hold these things at arm's length and use the LCD screen to frame 'n' focus! The VF has horrific parallax error at close-up and macro focus distances.

Transcend 2GB SD memory (three). $24 new. Let's see now.... I think I can shoot about 6000 images with the 3.2MP camera and these three tiny cards (hope I don't lose 'em), before having to download. Locally, in a pack of three these were cheaper than 1GB and 512MB cards that were only available singly, and actually getting pretty hard to find at all.

Duracell NIMH Rechargeable Batteries (six) and Charger - After seeing how fast some of these little cameras eat alkaline AAs, I quickly ran out to get some rechargeables! $20 new. If they weren't so damned expensive ($20 for six, w/charger, really is a good deal), and the chargers such a pain (cheesy plastic, four batts at a time, 5-6 hours), I'd probably switch to using them for all my flashes, etc., too! Maybe I'll add some four at a time, but I probably need 40 or more for my 'real' shooting kit! Large packs of alkaline AAs are easier, and pretty cheap.... for now.

- Case:
LowePro REVO 40 Compact Camera Case, Black w/Black Suede Trim - $2 used. Bought this hoping to use it with my incidence meter, but that won't fit. However, the A510, spare batteries and thumbnail size SD memory cards all fit into the itty bitty case just fine! It slip-locks onto my belt to carry the entire 'system' easily, or it'll fit nicely in my car's glove box or center console... no prob!

Under $75 total... For the entire A510 frickin' setup. That's damned cheap photography :D

Konica (Konishiroku, Konishi, Rokuoh-Sha & Sakura):
I've used Konica SLRs since the 1970s. In fact I still have the first one I bought used - a T3 classic - and it still works perfectly (it's had one CLA done, in the 1990s). Over the years I've collected nearly all 35mm film models made by Konica/Konishiroku from before WWII up to about 1991, as well as most lenses and accessories. If you are seeking info about Konica, please get in touch. If I don't know the answer to your questions, there's a highly active user group/discussion forum at http://tech.groups.yah​​/ (external link), where I'm one of the five moderators and approx. 1000 members worldwide.

Konica SLRs, nearly all 1960-1987:
F, FS, FP, FM, Auto-Reflex, Auto-Relfex P, T, FTA, A, T'2', FTA'2', A'2', A3, A1000, T3, T3'N', TC, T4, FS-1, FC-1, FP-1, FT-1 and TC-X. Also Wards variants: SLR700 in chrome and black. Seeking FS-W, FS in black, Autoreflex W, and FT-1 Pro Half. Besides TTL, seeking other Revue variants.

- Primary user SLRs: four FT-1 & four T4 w/Winders AR

Konica Hexanon lenses, most primes 21mm to 800mm. A few Hexanon zoom lenses. Some older zoom lenses were pretty darned good... Many others were not. Hexanon 80-200/3.5 is pretty good. 35-100/2.8 Varifocal is decent, too. Some Hexar lenses (in K/AR mount, these were budget lenses)

Third party lenses for Konica K/AR mount:

- Tamron SP Lenses - I've used a number of these interchangeable Adaptall and Adaptall-2 mount lenses over the years and they can be quite good: 24mm f2.5, 90mm f2.5 macro, 80-200/2.8 zoom, 180/2.5, 300/2.8, 400/4, and mirror lenses 350/5.6 and 500/8. The beauty of these lenses is their interchangeable Adaptall2 mount... Which are widely available to fit many different SLRs, ranging from vintage to modern. So it's easy to swap a lens from one camera system to another, as needed.

- Tokina ATX Lenses - Some of these lenses were quite good too.

Konica System flashes - most, plus a few Sunpak & Vivitar flashes.

Konica Macro system - most items: lenses, bellows, extensions, helicoid, auto rings, dual releases, etc.

Konica RF & VF 35mm cameras - most models 1930s thru early 1990s:
Rubicon (x-ray, ~1938). Konica '1' - most variants: pre-MIOJ, early MIOJ & MIOJ, f4.5 & f3.5, Hexar & Hexanon lens, Konirapid & Konirapid-S shutters. Konilette 'I' (teal plastic top), Konilette 'II' (matte 'chrome top), Konilette 'II-m' (built in meter), Konica II, IIB, IIB-m, IIA, III, IIIA, IIIM, Konilette 35, S, SII, L, EE-Matic, Auto S, Eye (half frame), Auto S2, EE-Matic S 'New', EE-Matic 260 (126 film), EE-Matic Deluxe, Auto SE, Auto S1.6, EE-Matic Deluxe 2, EE-Matic Deluxe F, Auto S261 (126 film), C35, Electron, C35 Automatic, C35 V, Auto S3, C35 FD, C35 EF, C35 AF, C35 EF 'New', C35 EFP, C35 EF3, C35 AF2, Pop, C35 EFJ, C35 MF, AF3, MG, MG-D, EFP2, MR70, AA-35, MT9, EFP3, MR70 LX, Genba Kantoku, MS-40 (military special), Z-Up 80, Tomato, Kanpai, Z-Up 28W, MT-100, Off Road 28WB Wide, Revio CL (APS). Most Wards variants. A few Revue variants.

Seeking Aiborg, other Off Road models, and Recorder half frame models. Seeking Konishiroku film cassettes for early Konilette, too.

Konica RF & VF Camera Accessories - Copy/macro stand and macro lens for Konica '1', various Auto-ups, Konicameter, Konicameter LV, Cherry Flash Gun, Koniflash, Koniflash III, Konilette Flash, Koniflash IIIM, X-14 Flash, X20 Flash, X20N Flash, Flash Cube Holder (chrome & black)

FOR SALE: KONICA 'OFF ROAD' CAMERAS I have available eight or nine Genba Kantoku and MS-40. These are the Japanese and military versions of the original Off Road model. The cameras are all ex-British Army. Condition is most certainly used, some rougher than others, but I am only selling the ones that test as working. I provide a copy of an instruction book with each one sold. Very reasonable pricing. Trades for other Off Road models considered. Lens is 35mm wide angle, f3.5 I think . It's sharp with good color rendition. Please inquire.

The Off Road/Genba Kantoku is a specially gasketed and sealed camera that can be used safely on the beach, in mud, splashing about in the surf or your hot tub at home, etc. While not a true underwater camera, it's got armor glass over the lens and can be rinsed off under a faucet, when it gets dirty. It's a 35mm-film camera with a wide angle lens and essentially program-only, AF-only function. Dead simple to use.... Just a few buttons. Built in flash. Takes great pics and will survive places most other cameras won't! Search the Internet for additional info on the 'cult classic' Konica Off Road.

One might ask, why have a 'fume room' at all? Well, at the going prices for these things used, I'm just not willing to sell it. It's all in storage now. But if time and space allow and I ever start shooting lots of B&W again, i know I'll want to make prints with this, then digitize them with a good flatbed scanner. Ever scan B&W negs? Not good, even with the best film scanners! C41 B&W film scans are okay, but I'd miss some of the rich old silver based emulsions, not to mention working them with the Zone System.
