What do you shoot with?

I shoot with a Sony A7 II and I currently use four adapted manual-focus lenses: an M-mount Voigtlander 35mm F1.2, an M-mount Leica Elmarit 90mm F2.8, an M-mount Voigtlander 21mm F1.8, and an R-mount Leica Telyt 180mm F3.4 (all except the 35mm were purchased used). Of them, I use the 35mm and 90mm the most.

The first manual I purchased was the Voigtlander 35mm, when I was still using an NEX (APS-C). My thinking was: "I really want to try working with a fast manual prime, this one would give me a roughly 50mm field-of-view on the NEX, and if Sony ever comes out with a full-frame camera, I'll still be able to use it." If the question is really about what I use to 'make' my photos, I also certainly consider Lightroom to be an important part of my photo-making process.
