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
Canon EF 135mm F2L USM
Leica APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4 ASPH
sharp, extremely good bokeh - maybe the best "Bokeh-machine" from Canon to date
Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G
Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM
Sony Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA
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!
Apple iPhone SE
Apple iPad Pro
11" 1 TB 6 GB RAM - just a gorgeous travel companion
Other gear:
  • HP DesignJet Z3200 Photo 12 Ink Gicleé FineArt 24 inch (=620 mm) printer with large gamut
  • iMac PRO 10C V64 display, noise level and speed are phenomenal

joger's previous gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Sony a7R II
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L
Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8
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)
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
slow aperture, quite heavy and not much grain over the 70-200 f/4.0 in reach - a classic loose - loose situation
Canon EF 70-200mm F4L IS USM
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
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF
Zeiss Loxia 85mm F2.4
optically o.k.ishbut mechanically an ugly piece of lens
mechanically a masterpiece but speed and weight and optics are best case mediocre
Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS
Apple iPhone 5
Apple iPhone 6
Apple iPad Mini
Apple iPad Air 2
Other gear:
