AlexBakerPhotoz's current gear

Nikon Coolpix AW100
Nikon D600
Sony Alpha NEX-6
I'm a fly fisherman and SCUBA/snorkler so I always need something small and waterproof, I got this to the replace the Olympus Syylus 1039 SW I had for a few years that eventually became MUCH less waterproof and was not very sharp.
Great, great camera. The D600 is a game changer. Moving from D7000 to D600 was so easy. It's virtually the same body ergonomically.
Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F3.5-4.5G ED VR
The classic standard
Great lens. Very sharp. I had the older version and traded it in on this one and it's sharper and has VR.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G
Tamron SP AF 200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD (IF)
Really loving this lens. Totally glad I got it over the f/2.8 to save size and weight, since it's very much a field and travel lens for me. Very sharp on the D600!
Awesome IQ!
Light, very portable, very good IQ, a real bargain. This lens is often overlooked, but I love it.
Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX
Epson Stylus Photo R2880

I love it more and more as time goes by. Got it new Sept. 2012. Makes really excellent images, its a bit big and heavy, but I've gotten used to that too It's a great buy.
Great B&W prints and color too. But really special with B&W.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5

Sharp and fast, I sold it moving to FX. Great lens though.

Tokina AT-X Pro 12-24mm f/4 (IF) DX
Good and sharp, I loved this lens a lot for landscapes and tight places, but traded to it's big brogher the FX 16-28mm when I got my D600
Other gear:
  • Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 5 with Anthropics Portrait Professional, Topaz Black and White Effects and DeNoise 5 plug-ins
  • Bronica S 2 1/4" medium format, not the best camera in the field for sure, but good Nikkor lenses. I have 75mm and 150mm lenses, an eye level prism and assorted stuff for it. All antiques now

  • Nikkor 50mm f/1.4
  • Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 macro
