About me:

Trying to become a better photographer, slowly. Amateur ...

KariP's current gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Canon EOS 80D
Fujifilm X-E3
It is natural that cameras gets better - it is evolution. 80D has made a longer leap this time. The sensor - and the image quality i get is much better than it was with my 7D... especially DR. Best Canon APS-C camera so far.
Fujifilm X-T1
Canon EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II USM
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
A very special camera ! Great for traveling Electronic silent shutter is sometimes useful. AF is not perfect - 80D is better
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.
This + 10-22 + 7D was my favorite combo when i did not travel light... Good but not perfect - optically. Very good with FF body and CO1 automatic corrections.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
Canon EF-S 10-22mm F3.5-4.5 USM
Canon EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM
Very nice IQ - only the aberrations or problems with perspective that all suoerwide lenses have.
Very useful traveling lens.
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Fujifilm XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS
Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS
Very sharp!
A great system with Fuji X-E1 or XT-1 Best IQ of all zoom lenses i have used. Makes prime lenses unnecessary in most cases.
Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR
Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8
Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
Really small and flat - very portable and almost pocketable with X-E1. Optically very good
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!
Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R
Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
Epson Stylus Photo R3000
Great IQ - AF is rather slow
Sharp, fast, silent focusing - images are great. The lens is really heavy !
Phase One Capture One Pro
I'm trying to replace Aperture... IQ is superior. The DAM is not very easy with this software
