Ricoh GR III
Sony a7
Sony a7R IV
Pocketable, very sharp lens, good sensor and pleasing output. Snap-AF is very helpful. An absolute joy to use. It's with me all the time.
Super small and light with excellent portability. Incredible size to image quality ratio. Battery life is not good though, so keep spares or charge it via a power bank.
Upgraded my A7RIII to this. I loved that one but the RIV made it even better. Big resolution boost and many other more incremental improvements. Such a nice camera.
Samyang AF 35mm F2.8 FE / Rokinon AF 35mm F2.8 FE
Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro
Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN Art
Much, much better than expected. Super light and compact. Image quality is great, especially for the price.
Extremely sharp! Nice focal length, quick autofocus, nice amount of functions on the lens and very well built. Very good choice for macro, probably one of the top choices for E-mount!
Incredible sharpness across the frame already when wide open. I am so impressed! Great bokeh too. Some distortion is visible but easily corrected and not an issue. Autofocus is really swift and it's very well made. Such a good buy.
Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS
Sony FE 35mm F1.4 GM
Sony FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Expensive and some CA wide open but incredibly sharp. Really enjoyable to use. Probably my favorite lens on the system so far.
Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 Di III RXD
Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD
Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 Di III VXD
Small, lightweight and sharp like a prime. A good compromise in size versus performance.
Sits on my camera most of the time, very universal focal range and super sharp.
Super small and light telephoto zoom, great image quality and really fast autofocus. Incredible package with an added manual close focus on the short end. The compromise is a bit of distortion.

Enjoyable camera, the optical viewfinder made it a totally different and fun experience. Unfortunately, at this low resolution the worminess from the X-trans got intense really, really quick.
Great image quality and an overall package. AF is pretty bad and burst rates are low. But for a single shot camera it worked great.
Was very pleased with it, missed certain things like USB-C and faster card slot for clearing that buffer. But otherwise great image quality and superb AF.
Fujifilm GFX 50S
Sony a7R III
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9
Great image quality from the sensor, enjoyable slower process in comparsion with other systems. The autofocus is pretty terrible and the menu needs work.
Outstanding image quality, never felt that I am missing anything. Menu system is quite clunky, but you'll never dig around in there after having it properly set up. A7RIV replaced it.
Good, not great. Image quality is fine, nice stabilization and usability. Not enough for me to keep it. Lenses are hit and miss and the shutter button is way too sensitive. A bit too big and bulky for what it is, fits some people ergonomically better than me,
Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS
Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS
Sony E 35mm F1.8 OSS
Not very sharp but cheap and compact. Not much to say really. It worked fine.
Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
Sony E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Slightly unwieldy, but the image quality was very good and did not disappoint. Upgraded to the GM for the massive size and weight difference.

Considering the price, it's not great. In regards to the sensor size the performance is ok. My sample was clearly beaten by the Tamron 28-75, even wide open.
Loved it! Cheap, fast and lightweight. Only exchanged it for the Sigma 1.4 DG DN for the aperture.
Tamron 100-400mm F4.5-6.3 Di VC USD
Sony FE 35mm F1.8
The only real point worth mentioning on this lens is the CA. Otherwise it is incredibly good and absolutely worth the price. Superbly sharp and so satisfying to use,
