ljclark's current gear

Fujifilm X100S
Fujifilm X20
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 (Lumix DMC-FT3)
The familiar X100 improved. A great camera for walking around.
Just enough upgrades from the X10 to make it worthwhile. (I use it to shoot all my eBay sales items.)
Replaces my Minox sub-minis as a pocket camera.
Fujifilm X-Pro1
Fujifilm X-T1
Nikon D300
These replaced the D200 and Fuji S-5 Pro. Nikon needs to get off their collective backsides and give us a D400.
Carl Zeiss Biogon T* 2,8/21 ZM
Carl Zeiss Biogon T* 2,8/25 ZM
Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 4/18 ZM
Standard kit. Favorite Lens. Sharp. Contrasty.
Standard kit -- for the wide end.
Fujifilm XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS
Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 R
Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R
Fujifilm XF 35mm F1.4 R
Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
This is a "Wow" lens. I'd guess the best yet produced by Fujifilm in the X-mount.
Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R
Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro
Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH
Standard kit. Basically a faultless lens.
Nikon AF Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8-4D IF
Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E II
The other soccer war horse.
Sigma 1.4x EX DG Tele Converter
Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM
Tokina AT-X Pro 11-16mm f/2.8 DX
Replaced the Nikkor 12-24 and is at least as good, plus one stop faster.
Tokina AT-X Pro 50-135mm f/2.8 DX
Voigtlander 12mm F5.6 Ultra Wide Heliar
Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Super Wide Heliar
Fills a nice niche for APS lenses.
Crazy wide.
Voigtlander 35mm F2.5 Color Skopar
Voigtlander 75mm F1.8 Heliar Classic
Nokia Lumia 820
Lovely lens. Underappreciated.
Other gear:
  • Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home This bag holds my Leica M9 5-lens standard kit (total of 5 lenses with 35mm mounted) plus a Fuji X100, Fuji EF-x20 flash, Voigtlander multi VF, batteries, etc.
  • Leica M6
  • Leica Summicron-M 90mm f/2 (Canada) Standard kit. Nice to have a fast 90mm.
  • Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 pre-ASPH Standard kit. Not as razor sharp as the ASPH f/1.4 to 2, but I prefer it from there to smaller apertures.
  • Nikon AF Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 D
  • Nikon D300 #2
  • Voigtlander 28mm f/1.9 Ultron ASPH
  • Voigtlander 28mm f/3.5 Color-Skopar

ljclark's previous gear

Ricoh Caplio GX100
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 (Lumix DMC-FT2)
Fujifilm FinePix X100
Blame this camera for getting me hooked on Fujifilm.
Fujifilm X10
Lytro Light Field 8GB
Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro
Looking forward to the improvements the X20 will bring.
Piece of junk. Returned it in a matter of days.
Leica M8
Nikon D1X
Nikon D1H
One of my first two "real" digital cameras.
One of my first two "real" digital cameras.
Nikon D200
Olympus E-1
Olympus E-3
Significant upgrade over D100. Good AF for sports. Replaced the D1H/D1X.
Great shooter. Wonderful ergonomics. Slow AF.
One or two years behind the power curve. Oly missed the mark, and the camera lost the size and ergo advantages of the E-1. Had it a month before I sold it and abandoned 4/3.
Olympus E-500 / EVOLT E-500
Olympus E-510 / EVOLT E-510
Leica M9
Ricoh GXR S10 24-72mm F2.5-4.4 VC
Ricoh GXR A12 50mm F2.5 Macro
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR
A true shooter's camera. Wish the IQ was better. Replaced by the Fuji X20.
AF would stop working. Nikon never admitted to the problem that hundreds have reported. Not good for FF -- and not a great lens for APS-C.
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF
Olympus Zuiko Digital 11-22mm 1:2.8-3.5
Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-54mm 1:2.8-3.5
Nothing to write home about. Replaced with Tokina 11-16.
Olympus Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter EC-14
Carl Zeiss Touit 1.8/32
Carl Zeiss Touit 2.8/12
Overpriced compared to Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 -- which the Zeiss does not out-perform. Relies too much on software correction. Just not up to Zeiss standards.
