About me:

We live in history. The most interesting photos to me are the ones which weren't taken
today. Today's mundane is tomorrow's priceless gem.

Gearóid Ó Laoi, Garry Lee's current gear

Canon PowerShot S90
Fujifilm X10
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000
Tiny and weighs nothing. Fuji X10 has better IQ but this one isn't bad. Great at base iso
If you want a REALLY light camera with a great lens and good in poor light, this is it. For its sensor size, it's great
Canon EOS-1D X
Sony Alpha NEX-6
Sony Alpha NEX-7
I find this to be a great camera. AF is very fast, you can set up three customised settings and it has a highlight protect feature which is invaluable.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.0 USM
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM
Not brilliant but you wouldn't throw it out and it's dead light.
Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 28-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM
This is phenomenally useful. Mine is sharp edge to edge wide open at all FL. Perfect for a wedding. I've dropped it three times and it's still perfect.
Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM
Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
Got this in as new condition, secondhand. Only negative is that it's heavier than the Sigma 300 it replaced. It is however a bit sharper and the AF appears a bit better. I think the Sigma had better bokeh, but overall I love this lens. It also works extremely well with Sigma APO 2x converter.
Terrific lens dead sharp wide open. Very light.
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Got one secondhand in pristine condition. Really sharp at all FL, great AF.
Great lens and very sharp. AF not as quick, I think, as 70-200 but it has the extra reach and is lighter.
Sigma 1.4x EX DG Tele Converter
Sigma 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art
Sigma 2x EX DG Tele Converter
CA at edges..
Surprisingly good with Canon 300 f2.8 IS L.
Sony E 16mm F2.8 Pancake
Sony E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS
Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS
Other gear:
  • Canon EF 28-70mm F2.8 L Old but great lens.
  • Eos-1Dx second body
