Jakub Kubica's current gear

Sony a7R
Sony a7S
Canon EF 100mm f/2.0 USM
Downside - loud "double" shutter (no EFCS).
My only complaints: compressed RAW and very low quality plastic screen - durability on the average side. Anyway... best camera IQ wise, something that beats good old Canon 5D (I version).
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM
Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro
To my surprise it works fast with metabones IV and A7s.
Best lens ever - period ! (for those who understand what this lens is created for...)
Noisy AF, focusing ring is unusable.
Voigtlander 35mm F1.4 Nokton
Very soft @1.4 on Sony A7s. - but very fun to use !

Jakub Kubica's previous gear

Kodak DC215
Olympus E-10
Fujifilm FinePix X100
Total c*ap. Fixed focus, RS-232 inferface. 1mpix - some retro feels from this kodak shitcam.
Poor colour reproduction, ISO 80-320... bright lens but almost no DoF control.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Olympus E-1
Olympus E-400 (EVOLT E-400)
Low dynamic range and strange lines in shadow areas (just poor CMOS sensor implementation). Anyway - very durable and reliable piece of equipment for ordinary/undemanding photoshooting.
Very durable, with pleasant colors and great external white balance sensor. 5 mpix only, low iso very nice.
Last Olympus DSLR worth using. Last one with Kodak CCD sensor.
Olympus E-510 (EVOLT E-510)
Pentax K200D
Sony Alpha DSLR-A300
;-( Dynamic range limited to dangerously low levels. Very poor Panasonic cmos sensor with "crying" noise pattern in the shadows. Unsuitable for HDR multishoot due to uneven noise distribution and lack of CDS (something that Sony implemented).
Used only as backup. Very poor viewfinder, low iso quality quite ok.
Sony Alpha DSLR-A900
Sony 50mm F1.4
Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM
Workhorse with very loud mirror slap :)
Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-54mm 1:2.8-3.5
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm 1:4.0
Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG Aspherical HSM
Nice but boring lens, sealed is a plus.
Excellent piece of glass, Olympus created masterpiece here. Super well corrected, high contrast.... this one I will remember.
