Camera shopping completed

for now anyway.

August 20, 2011 — So here’s what I ended up getting, no surprises:

  • Canon EOS 5d Mark II
  • Canon EF 24-105 f/4 L
  • Voigtlander 20mm f/3.5 (manual focus)
  • Rokinon (rebranded Samyang) 14mm f/2.8 (manual focus, manual aperture)

Go big or go home, eh?

These join the rest of my gear:

The rest of it being:

  • Canon EOS Rebel (6MP)
  • Tamron 28-200 “superzoom”
  • Tamron 200-400 (why did I buy this instead of say, a prime 300mm?)
  • Canon “nifty fifty” 50mm f/1.8
  • Canon 15mm fisheye
  • Couple of Canon kit lenses, one from the digital Rebel, one from my first camera, a film rebel I bought in 1994 or so.

Took the above shot with a Panasonic Lumix point and shoot, handheld at 1/5 sec — not too shabby.

Too bad there’s not much interesting scenery around where I live.
