TheLastMan's current gear
Second DSLR (Dec 2011) My ideal camera. Only limited by my skill and the lens I put on it.
Good all-rounder. Reputation for variable quality but I have a good copy. AF is very quick, accurate and quiet. This is the lens I leave on the camera.
Fantastic lens. Small, super-sharp, great colour and contrast, brilliant macro, beautifully made. The lens I use for small objects, natural scenes (rather than buildings and towns) and still life.
Great focal range. Sharp if stopped down a tad. Solid build. AF hunts a bit. Use it less than I thought I would. I find the 18-135 is long enough for most uses.
Good general portrait and walkaround lens. Very sharp and fast. Not wide enough on APS-C for much landscape / streetscape work. It is my lens for photos of people.
TheLastMan's previous gear
My first digital camera (Nov 2002). My eldest son still uses it!
Second digital camera (May 2004). Bought for wife, used by whole family. Still used by youngest son.
First DSLR (June 2007) A great camera, sadly stolen.
Kit lens stolen with the K100D
Sold. Poor lens, only redeeming features was it was small, light and cheap! Replaced by 55-300, miles better optically.
Sold. Not enough reach for my taste these days. Replaced by far superior 18-135.
