About me:

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

KariP's current gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Fujifilm X-E3
Canon EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II 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 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 35mm F2 IS USM
Canon EF 50mm F1.4 USM
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.
Fujifilm XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS
Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR
A great system with Fuji X-E3 or X-H1 Good IQ and very useful traveling lens. Makes prime lenses unnecessary in most cases.
Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8
Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R
Really small and flat - very portable and pocketable with X-E3. 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!
Great IQ - AF is rather slow
Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
Epson Stylus Photo R3000
Phase One Capture One Pro
Sharp, fast, silent focusing - images are great. The lens is really heavy !
I'm trying to replace Aperture... IQ is superior. The DAM is not very easy with this software
