Jeff2013's current gear

Sony a1
Sony a7R IV
Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
What can I say, WOW, what a camera!!
Great camera.
The newest lens in my stable. In my limited use it appears to be outstanding; however, it is really heavy... not a travel lens. :) I like the compression of he 135mm ART, but will use this lens when space is more limited. Update: Having shot several portrait sessions, now, this lens is absolutely killer!
Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro
Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art
Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art
Best macro lens I have ever shot.
Replaced my Sony GM 24-70mm f2.8 with this lens as the Sigma is noticeably sharper at 70mm f2.8, where I shoot it a lot. However, to be honest, I prefer primes and do not use it much.
I need six stars for this lens. It is amazing!!!
Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN Art
Sony 1.4x Teleconverter (2016)
Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS
I replaced my big/heavy Sigma 85mm f14 ART HSM lens with this DN lens. My HSM lens was amazingly sharp across the field, and I now have this level of performance in a much, much more compact & lighter package.
This lens is outstanding! Very sharp lens at 400mm. I think it is sharper than the excellent Canon 100-400mm II that I had.
Sony FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM
Sony FE 135mm F1.8 GM
Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS
I replaced my GM 16-35mm f2.8 with this lens. This new Sony lens is amazing and 12mm relatively distortion free images adds a whole new dimension to my photography.
What can I say... this lens is nearly flawless.
Excellent lens.
Sony FE 20mm F1.8G
Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM
Sony FE 35mm F1.4 GM
Excellent lens!
Nice lens, although I am not as enamored with it as some users claim to be.
Outstanding sharpness and lack of optical flaws. This would probably be my desert island lens.
Sony Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA
Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD
This lens is very sharp wide-open!! It almost makes my excellent 55mm f1.8 look soft at f1.8. Lens contrast wide-open is outstanding. I no longer miss my old Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART as I think this lens is better, overall.
Outstanding for a super-zoom. I bought for travel use, combined with my GM 12-24mm f2.8 and Sony 20mm f1.8.

Acquiring this lens would probably land me in divorce court. :)

The fiddly pop-up viewfinder and eyecup keep this camera from five stars.

Sony SLT-A77 II
Nikon D810

This might just be the best camera I have ever shot. I wish better lenses existed for it.
