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
Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II
Sony a6000
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.
VERY complicated camera and quirky, but when you've worked it out, it's terrific. Brilliant AF with one square as target, tracking off, C-AF on silent low speed (18ffs), for running photography. I love it.
Sony Alpha NEX-6
Sony Alpha NEX-7
Canon EF 100mm f/2.0 USM
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM
Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM
Not brilliant but you wouldn't throw it out and it's dead light.
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 28-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM
Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L 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.
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.
Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM
Terrific lens dead sharp wide open. Very light.
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO
Great lens and very sharp. AF not as quick, I think, as 70-200 but it has the extra reach and is lighter.
Super lens. Clutch may drive you mad in which case turn it off (in camera settings). Supersharp etc.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 Pro
Sigma 1.4x EX DG Tele Converter
Sigma 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art
This is amazing. Sharp, contrasty, superb AF, light, very good close up. Works almost equally well with the 1.4 teleconverter.
CA at edges..
Sigma 2x EX DG Tele Converter
Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN | C
Sony E 16mm F2.8 Pancake
Surprisingly good with Canon 300 f2.8 IS L.
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
