A RETIRED musician, photographer, pastor, worship leader, guitar teacher, traveler (with my wife)…

Camera: Canon 5dMk3, M, M3 and an array of lenses…

Love portraiture, landscape, HDR, and close up work. Have a multi-strobe setup for portraiture with shoot through soft boxes and shoot through umbrellas

I have an array of vintage ''all-manual'' lenses from the 1970s - old Zuiko, Nikor, Tokina and Sigma glass - a 70-210mm Nikor & a 55mm micro Nikor (1:2), and a Sigma 400mm. All are adapted to work on my Canon bodies, and all can be had for a fraction of the price of new auto-lenses, and take amazing pics.

I have a couple 50mm f/1.8 & f/1.4 Zuikos. And I have a 50mm Nikor f/1.4 as well (very sharp and fast). It lets in twice as much light as an f/2.8 which means one more shutter speed wide open for available light indoor work.

I have a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, a 50mm EF f/1.4, an EF 100 f/2.8 L, a 70-200 f/4 L, and a 17-35 f/4 "L". All these are above average sharp, quick and typical, and produce the expected Canon color balance.

I have a LensBaby 2.0, Lensbaby Composer and a screw on ultra-wide lens element.

I also have macro extenders tube (25mm) and a cheap set of tubes that go all the way from 11mm all the way to over 60mm when assemled together.

I also have a 12mm and 25mm set of Canon coupled macro extension tubes. I really love close up photography (it's not all macro, but it's closer than expected).

I use the Canon 5dMk3 for portrait work, experimental shoots, macro and other serious work, and the Canon M & M3 (mirrorless) for travel. Actually the M3 is somewhere between a Canon T6i and an 80D stuffed into a very small package.

The M & M3 with 3 lenses, an extension tube, and ND filters weigh about 3 pounds and go in a light over the shoulder bag. Great for hauling around all day.

The Canon M resolution is great, the lenses sharper than most kit lenses, and the EOS-M 11-22mm amazing for landscape (compares to a 17mm-34mm lens). The sharpness on the EOS-M 55-250 is similar to that on my Canon EF 70-300mm. Not as sharp as my "L" glass, but I've printed 20"X30" landscapes with it which have amazing color and contrast. And the EOS-M 18-55mm is great for mid-range shots, and video interviews.
