9VIII's current gear

Canon EOS 1100D (EOS Rebel T3 / EOS Kiss X50)
Fujifilm X-E2S
Fujifilm X-E3
For what it is, how old it is, and what I paid for it, even the cheapest Rebel is still a great value.
Fuji JPEGs are fun to play with. Set everything to -2 (color, sharpness, shadows, highlights) if you want images closest to unaltered RAW.
Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
Fujifilm XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ
Kamlan 50mm F1.1
Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG Macro HSM
Cheap and fast. Not amazingly sharp wide open but not too soft. Depth of Field is too thin for regular MF Assists, punch in and visually confirm focus if you want to be sure.
Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art
Other gear:
  • Mitakon 35mm f0.95
  • Oshiro 500mm f6.3 For a $100 lens, build quality is very decent. I haven't tested IQ yet but at a glance it doesn't look bad.
