What's in the Bag?

What's in the Bag?


I upgraded my primary body and several of the lenses I use most last year.

Before pulling the trigger I did a lot of research and was tempted by many of the great systems on the market but I decided to stick with the Canon 5D, now in it's 4th generation. 

Next time around I might go with one of the lighter mirrorless systems but for now I still like an optical viewfinder and a solid chunk of camera in my hands.

The sensor performs really well at higher ISOs and the new AF system is fantastic.

For lenses I went with the 16-35 f/4 IS, putting a premium on the Image Stabilization over maximum aperture. That lens is also sharper than the 16-35 f/2.8 which is twice the price so I think that's an easy choice as f/4 is a good match for the improved sensor and AF system.


Next up the 24-70 f/2.8 II. I might have been happy with the f/4 IS version but unfortunately that lens just isn't very sharp at 50mm wide open and that put me right off it. This second version of the f/2.8 is sharp at all focal lengths and it's really important to me to deliver consistent results.

And finally the new 85 f/1.4 IS. This lens is a bit of a beast but it's very fast to focus and looks great wide open. Much sharper than the 85 f/1.2 is at the wider aperture and so much faster to focus.

I also have quite a few older lenses covering from 8mm to 300mm but I only use those for specialist purposes.

I'm hoping that Canon will introduce a 50mm f/1.4 IS to match the quality of the new 85, that would really please me.
