Camera - 10/Lenses-9

A brief description:

Camera: EOS 1V, simply the best film SLR. I shoot only slide film with it now, and the results are really great. Through the years, I came to appreciate the full potential of the camera. Canon used to say that 1 series cameras were designed to work as an extension of your vision, and they certainly do that. The camera simply does not get in the way, and delivers time after time, in all sorts of rough terrain.

Lenses: right now, I have settled for the 24-70 L, 50 L, and 70-200 f/4 IS L. I do mostly landscape and travel, so I need the flexibility of the zoom lenses, together with robust construction quality. The L zooms are simply superb for that. As for the 50 1.2 L, there is already enough said about it in this forum; but I bought it to shoot between f/1.2 and f/2 with Provia 400 slide film, and it sure delivers.
