X Faktor Photo's current gear

Canon EOS 7D
Canon EOS M
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
The nurtured (spoiled) workhorse in my stable. Bought (when it first released) with the 28-135 for the price of the body only, $1600 (7% tax included!)
Sponsored Gear (Freebie!) Great all around lens, nothing it can't do. Weather sealed, Image Stabilization, constant aperture, wide-to-tele zoom.
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM
The sharpest lens I own, F4 does it. Goes everywhere with me. Best $200 ever spent.
First L lens that I ever paid for; extremely sharp, Build Quality: 9.0; However, I had noticed white balance and contrast inconsistencies in certain frames when shooting high-speed. Peculiar.
Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM
Incredibly sharp. So far, the most reliably weapon in my arsenal.
Other gear:
  • Canon EOS 1N 35mm Professional Film Body + Power Booster (MSRP$3500 circa 1995) eBay $150
  • Canon FD 50 1.4
  • Sigma 180mm F3.5 DG EX Macro Sigma's rare full-length macro lens, Incredible lens, I used it alot with high-speed telephoto shots before I bought the 70-200 F4L

X Faktor Photo's previous gear

Sony Alpha DSLR-A300
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Sony DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM
This camera got me into the SLR world. Bought for $800 new, sold March 2013 for $170. Digital depreciation.
"Freebie!", in quotes because I saved a few hundred $ when I bought it with the 7D, so I can say I got it for free.
Sony 75-300mm F4.5-5.6
Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM
Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro
Found it on an old Minolta Maxxum in my garage, sold it with the a300
Alpha Mount | can focus up to the glass | excellent focal range | Sold for $200ish
Was great till the AF broke.
Other gear:
  • Canon FD 200 2.8 S.S.C.
