About me:

It's the lenses that make the difference and not the DSLRs (as long as they are better then the sensor

joger's current gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EF 135mm f/2.0L USM
Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM
x 2 The current state of the art sensor technology from Canon - but not compare to the Sony 36 MPixel sensor which has 40 % more linear resolution and 2 ½ stops more dynamic range
sharp, extremely good bokeh - maybe the best "Bokeh-machine" from Canon to date
maybe the best consensus of weight and reach and optical plus mechanical performance - a dream come true lens to own
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
Canon Extender EF 1.4x III
small & light - the perfect walk around lens - in other words: what's not to like about this lens?
sharp & light - the perfect budget zoom for travel - best optical quality of all current slow zooms from Canon
almost no degradation in AF speed dn optical performance when used on the 300 f/2.8 L IS USM II
Canon Extender EF 2x III
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L
Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8
not as good as the 1.4x III extender but still in combination with the 300 f/2.8 L IS USM II a very good combination - easily outperforming the bare 70-300 L at 300 mm wide open
the defacto best wide angle lens from all brands - with 115° angle of view

joger's wish list

Sorted by most recently added.

Sony Alpha 7R
Added Nov 10, 2013
the camera I'd have wanted from Canon to fit perfectly my lenses
Other gear:
  • Canon 46 MPixel FF body with enhanced image quality I've tested the 5D III and the D800E and both are just a tiny bit better then the 5D II in terms of image quality
  • Canon 7D II Hopefully with all new sensor design. The current Canon cameras reflect the design of the 2004 EOS 20D
  • Metabones Canon AF & EXIF MK III mount adapter

joger's previous gear

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
Did not like the push pull design and most of all the image quality above 250-300 mm is sub prime compare to other offerings n the market (price independent)
slow aperture, quite heavy and not much grain over the 70-200 f/4.0 in reach - a classic loose - loose situation
Other gear:
  • Plaubel Peco Profia 5x7" (13x17 cm negative format) optical bench
