About me:

It's the lenses that make the difference and not the cameras (as long as they are better then the sensor)

joger's current gear

Sony a7R III
Leica APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4 ASPH
Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G
Best camera todate until we get the 60 MPixel Sensor in an A7 body.
Almost flawless travel lens. Light, compact and optically outstanding. Only weakness is the flare resistivity. Highly recommended!
Better than most primes in its focal range and relatively compact and light
Sony FE 135mm F1.8 GM
Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM
Sony Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA
Simply one of the best ever built 85 mm primes
Outstanding optical performance
Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Super Wide Heliar
Zeiss Loxia 21mm F2.8
Zeiss Loxia 35mm F2
The Heliar III in Sony FE mount is a stunning example of modern plus traditional design. Light, sharp and affordable - thumbs up for Voigtländer!
Unparalleled in size, weight and optical performance

joger's previous gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EOS 5DS R
Sony a7R II
Trusty workhorse. By today’s standards o.k.ish but unparalleled when it was released. Sony‘s first A7 beat it easily.
Nikon Z7
Nikon Z6
Canon EOS RP
Canon EF 135mm F2L USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
Did not like the push pull design and most of all the image quality above 250-300 mm is sub prime compare to other offerings n the market (price independent)
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L
Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8
Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D
Nikon AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D
Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D
Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye
Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
Canon EF 70-200mm F4L IS USM
slow aperture, quite heavy and not much grain over the 70-200 f/4.0 in reach - a classic loose - loose situation
Canon Extender EF 1.4x III
Canon Extender EF 2x III
Sigma APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM
Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8
Zeiss Batis 18mm F2.8
Samyang 135mm F2.0 ED UMC / Rokinon 135mm F2.0 ED UMC
Loxia 21 is clearly better and smaller
optically o.k.ishbut mechanically an ugly piece of lens
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF
Zeiss Loxia 85mm F2.4
Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS
Not as good as the Loxia 21 but larger and heavier.
mechanically a masterpiece but speed and weight and optics are best case mediocre
O.k. Performance but excels nowhere

unreliable AF and susceptibility to flare and harsh light - a very expensive lens for the money you have to pay for it
