Canon EOS 6D Mark II

My first full frame camera, second-hand, but almost unused before, solid work horse. The only thing that makes me a bit scared sometimes is the fact that it doesn’t have two card slots for backup, but other than that it’s everything you could wish for.

Canon EF 50mm f/1,8 STM

The go-to for daily use lens, sharp, f/1,8, lightweight. Some people would scoff at the fixed aperture, but to me it’s a plus to always keep you vigilant about composition!

IRIX 45 mm f/1,4 Dragonfly

My personal favourite for taking staged full portrait photos. Manual focus, but excellent sharpness, great light and bokeh, all for a reasonable price. Just except quite some weight, as Irix lenses are lots of glass and steel.

IRIX 150 mm f/2,8 Macro Dragonfly

Another favourite of mine, usually for macro, but can also take some nice detail pictures and even longer range stuff – just expect to be quite far from your subject. Worth the sharpness and fun, though~

LENSBABY Velvet 85 mm f/1,8

Very practical portrait lens, can be sharp around f/8, but open it to f/2 and you get a nice, glowy softness. Sometimes it can be too much around f/1.8, though so you might want play with it for a bit.

Laowa 15mm f/4 Wide Angle Macro 1:1 SHIFT

Lens for figure work and other stuff where you want macro style closeups, but want to leave the surroundings in the picture as well. f/4 is very solid for a lens of this type, and you even get basic Shift functionality, so the only downside, really, is the fact that it tends to bump into your macro subject.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

Another practical zoom lens, handy for vacations and other situations where you’d prefer to bring one lens instead of two or three ones. Suffers from lens creep a bit, but you can learn to live with it. Newer version fixes that, but in my opinion its improvements aren’t worth doubling the price tag.

IRIX 15 mm f/2,4 Firefly

Less often used wide lens – lately I only dabble in wide photo and astrophotography, for which this lens is a great option. A good option if your friend needs photos of their flat to sell, though!

Canon EOS 850D

A camera I used for about half a year, but I learned eventually that APS-C is not my cup of tea, big reason being my glasses. Sold it back and got full frame eventually.

Canon EF-S
18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM

Set lens for the 850D above. Fairly practical longer focal range (~220 mm full frame equivalent!), but the light amount and sharpness isn’t anything to write home about.

Canon EOS 1300D

My first actual camera – it was a wedding gift, so I used it to capture the honeymoon and then many great memories, like some of the very early pictures of my son. Looking back, many pictures have mediocre quality, of course, mainly because of the lens, but the emotional value fully compensates that.

Canon EF-S
18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III

Kit lens for 1300D that I’ve used for few years – not the greatest, really your typical average lens. But it can take photos and that’s what you want in the beginning, right?
