MisterHairy's current gear

Fujifilm X100F
Sony Alpha a7 III
Sony Alpha a7R III
A lovely little camera, with an excellent pancake lens but third party support for the X-trans sensor is less than great, even now, which although not Fuji's fault (their own dire software is though), still counts against it.
It's good, it's quiet, it's fast and accurate, it's an excellent but boring camera which will forever be in the shadow of the superior R version.
After a few years using the original a7r, I am happy to report that with good lenses, this is a truly excellent camera. Paired with the Loxia lenses, this camera is capable of taking some amazing images.

Bollocks in the corners and edges at 24mm but the more that i use this lens on the (only slightly) lower resolution A7iii, the more I like it.The centre is always sharp and stopped down a bit and at focal lengths above about 30mm, so are the edges. It is small and light and is actually a very useful lens.
The best lens I never use.
Sharp as all hell but masses of purple fringing.
Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS
Sony FE 85mm F1.8
Zeiss Loxia 21mm F2.8
A nice but very far from spectacular lens.
An excellent lens although one with significant field curvature. I consider this to be a plus point for my use as it brings closer objects at the periphery of the image into focus. This lens is easily as good as the larger ZF/ZE DSLR lenses.
Zeiss Loxia 25mm F2.4
Zeiss Loxia 35mm F2
Zeiss Loxia 85mm F2.4
This may be the best lens that I own. Excellent clarity and sharpness right out to the corners. Better, in that regard, than the 25/2 ZF.2 lens.
It is not often possible to distinguish the output from this lens from the Sony 35/2.8 which is much smaller, lighter and cheaper.
Just fantastic. Clear and clean images right from wide open and stopping down only serves to increase DOF. Wonderful!
