KariP's current gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Canon EOS R6
Fujifilm X-E3
Great camera from 2016 - today in 2021 a bit outdated, but usability and IQ is still great. Heavy and big compared to new R series
Just bought this in June 2021. Probably it has everything I will need. Only 4,5 stars because the learning curve is a bit steep because there are so many finesses. Great ergonomics, shutter sound soft and nice. AF is something from "The Future" - extremely fast.
Fujifilm X-H1
Canon EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II USM
Canon EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM
After reading several tests i finally bought this - and i'm also going to use it. Wildlife - mostly in the archipelago. After some testing i'm convinced that this is my best lens ever.
Canon EF 35mm F2 IS USM
Canon EF 50mm F1.4 USM
Fujifilm XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS
Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR
Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8
A great system with Fuji X-E3 or X-H1 Good IQ and very useful traveling lens. Makes prime lenses unnecessary in most cases.
Really small and flat - very portable and pocketable with X-E3. Optically very good
Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R
Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
The resolution is better than i expected. IQ is very much in the same class as with 18-55 Bokeh looks good - a bit restless in some difficult cases. This lens focuses fast!
Great IQ - AF is rather slow
Sharp, fast, silent focusing - images are great. The lens is really heavy !
