Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III
Sony Alpha a6500
Sony Alpha a7
Real nice camera when size is important. Great IQ.
Finnaly gave in and got myself the a6500. Wonderful camera. Like it much better than the a7r2 which is in danger of being sold. It is fast, small, light, has all the things I need. Not sure what else I could be asking for.
Another incredible Amazon deal. So I got one for my vintage lenses. MF is a joy - unlike on the a7r2. And IQ is still very good. Downside: Slugish and loud. Wih MB IV latest firmware, even decent AF with many lenses in Advanced Mode.
Sony Alpha a7R II
Canon EF 135mm F2L USM
Canon EF 16-35mm F4L IS USM
It is a great camera, yet I tend to like the a6500 more. EVF is bad for MF (shimmering). Ergonomics and menue could be better.
A wondeful lens that works like a charm on the A7R2. In combination with EF2470/2.8L or EF1635/4L covers all bases.
Great IQ at very good price. Glad I can mount Canon zooms onto my Sonys. While it is a bit large and heavy on the a6500, for lack of options I sometimes take it as only lens when walking cities.
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5–5.6 IS STM
Excellent, yet large and heavy. But worth taking when speed and IQ matter. Changing lenses is often just not an option. It is as sharp as my primes even at 2.8.
As good - if not better - than the oen w/o IS and again, much better value than the Sony offer.
Sold the Sony because this one offers comparable if not better IQ at a much lower price. It is part of my travel light set with the EF-S 1855 and EF-S 55250. Well made plastic body. AF works mostly well (but not as good as with the EF in low light)
Canon EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM
Canon EF-S 24mm F2.8 STM
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN (Sony E-mount)
Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN | C for Sony E-mount
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN Art
Only issue is with AF-S @ f2.4 and f2.8. Otherwise a really very good lens.
Sony E 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 PZ OSS
Sony E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
Sony E 20mm F2.8
I have seens worse images. Good for casual shootings and when on the bike.
It is all about size.
Sony E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS
Sony FE 28mm F2
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
All in one for trips with the a7r2 in APS-C mode.
A very good FF lens. If only two lenses, this one and the FE85/1.8 (or EF135/2).
Love size and weight. If I can only take one lens, this is it,
Sony FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Sony FE 85mm F1.8
Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS
Excellent lens. Outstanding sharpness and rendering. Only downside is "by wire" MF
Excellent nice lens, good price, excellent sharpness even wide open. Yet small and light.
Also an excellent lens, but large and heavy. Worth taking when IQ matters and for close ups.
Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Super Wide Heliar
Zeiss Batis 18mm F2.8
Zeiss Loxia 21mm F2.8
Mine is an excellent copy with sharpness across the frame.
The 21, 55 and Canon 135/2L make a perfect combo on the A7R2. All you need. Using all three in FF and APS-C, one has the full range of focal lenghts from 21 to 200mm at a very high quality.
