Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III
Sony Alpha DSLR-A850
Sony SLT-A77
I couldn't resist an open-box deal at Best Buy ($460)! I swear I am not a gear head. :D
Purchased used, 2013. $1079. 19,533 shutter actuations. Got the grip later during a sale at KEH for $119.
Sony SLT-A77 II
Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM
Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM
Currently my go-to camera. Got the grip from KEH for $100 with a 1/2 price coupon during Xmas season.
Bought this lens for ONE photo that I take every year.
Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM
Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM
Sony 135mm F2.8 (T4.5) STF
My go-to portrait lens.
Legendary.
Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G SSM
Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM
Sony DT 16-80mm F3.5-4.5 ZA Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T*
Manual focus broken, AF works just fine. Just a really outstanding lens otherwise.
Sony DT 35mm F1.8 SAM
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD
Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD
The 600mm does make a difference compared to other XXX-500mm zooms.
Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro
Adobe Photoshop CS6 extended
Portrait Professional Studio
I really like having layers to work with.
Default settings have too much smoothing, eye whitening, etc for me. So I duplicate the photo, use PortraitProf on the dupe, then turn down layer opacity to tone things down. Usually 30-50% opacity is good for me.
