Mr Darma's current gear

Nikon D2Hs
Nikon D40
Nikon Z5
The only Nikon developed sensor and it is based on JFET rather than the ubiquitous CMOS. Filmlike results and a joy to use.
The tiny DSLR with a CCD sensor has never let me down. Great little snapshooter.
What can I say other than that I love this thing.....absolutely love it. Besides the Noct and the 200mm f/2 Nikkors, I can shoot all my Leica lenses at a reasonable cost. The focus is just as accurate as the rangefinder and the view is unobstructed.
Pentax K-01
Pentax K-1
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Pentax mirrorless which was designed to use all the legacy Pentax glass without an adapter. The image quality is excellent but the concept was a dismal failure. I keep it as a curiosity.
My all time favorite DSLR.
surprisingly excellent
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 200mm f/2G ED VR II
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 ED-IF
Nikon Nikkor Z 58mm F0.95 S Noct
A monster of a lens but the best full telephoto lens obtainable (see DXOmark). Shares the shelf with the Noct,
I still love "the Beast"
My review says all I have to say about this nonpareil of a lens.
Pentax smc FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited
Pentax smc FA 43mm F1.9 Limited
Pentax smc FA 77mm 1.8 Limited
the full frame Limiteds are about equal to my Leica glass. Love the three of them.
Other gear:
  • lots of legacy Leica, Pentax, Nikon and Rolleiflex gear film stuff
