In 2022 I finally made the big upgrade from the a7r2 to the A1. With the R2, the AF performance had caused me buy only MF voigtlanders (14/4.5, 21/1.4, 40/1.2, 110). The 200-600 proved to be an exercise in frustration, leading to the A1 upgrade.

A friends wedding caused me to get the sigma 24-70 and 85/1.4, as it's a bit ridiculous having the A1 and no AF lenses other than the 200-600, and Sigmas because I'd blown my budget on the body. I'm finding the 110 a bit frustrating, might try the sigma 105 to see if fast AF helps with moving bugs. No plans to move on otherwise, hoping the rumored a1 firmware might bring some focus stacking enhancements for macro.

There's a view amongst some that the magic of the Q, if it exists, lies in the original and just as with the SL is lost in the upgrade.

Rethinking my A7IV purchase as it's not the travel cam I really wanted and given I have the A7RV maybe go back to the A7C as that travels better. Stick the Tammy 20-40 on it with the Laowa 14 in the bag and im off and can be sort of a backup. I have a desire for a Leica Q2 to be honest just don't like the money output. Not at this point in my life. Sony needs to make a better travel cam .

Yea that Leica Q2 Reporter continues to stick in my head. A lot of times travel involves using my 24GM on my A1 almost exclusively...FOV-wise this would be close enough, so I know it'd get use. I also know I'd need to sell my 24GM along with a few other lenses to justify it...not there yet.


I need something fun so I actually get off my ass and shoot too. Lots of years here and still need that push to shoot.

I’ve had both (Q and Q2) — magic is still there (at least for me).

Take it everywhere and amazing pictures right out of the camera.

I managed to build mine back up again even though I really didn't want to.
A7C
Loxia 25
Sony Zeiss 35 1.4. Got it used and really sharp and happy, but big. Would prefer the GM but I saved a lot of money.
Sigma 45 2.8. My fav walk around.
Voight 50 1.2 My go to one lens for the day option.
Loxia 85
Sony 200-600. Love it but in the winter don't use it much. I can handle heavy and big but add cold in the mix and it is a hassle to take.

Bodies:
Sony a6400
Sony A9

Lenses:
Sigma 30mm
Sony 70-350mm
Tamron 28-75mm
Tamron 70-180mm
Sony 200-600mm

I am looking at buying an ultrawide (probably the Sigma 14-24). I will consider selling my APSC kit and buying a second FF body. Maybe a used A7IV.

thinking about my desire for smaller lighter zoom kit for travel so considering selling my a74 and buying the a7r5 and pairing with the sony aps-c 2.8 g zoom and new fast primes.

all i need from the a7r5 is the extra resolution but the better evf and lcd will be appreciated. no interest in going backward to the a7r4

The x100v was my prior everyday carry camera and as much as I loved it, something about the Q2 files are just “special”. I’m not sure how to explain it but they are lovely.

Sony A7C
Sony 16-35mm f2.8 GM
Sony 20mm F1.8
Sony 35mm f2.8 ZA
Ricoh GR iii

I have the GM because I like to vlog between 16-20mm and my favorite focal length for portraits is 35. ZA is for small events where i'm only shooting photos. Got the 20mm recently to see if it could replace my GM since it's so much easier to vlog with size and weight wise. Using APSC mode on it to shoot photos at 30mm. Still undecided whether to keep it and sell the GM. Thinking Tamron 20-40mm might be a better fit though.

Also just got the GR iii as an everyday carry but i'm also highly considering a Fuji x70 if i can get my hands on one, or maybe an x100f.

Spare a thought for the Sigma 18-50 APS-C zoom. I bought it for the same purpose (on an A7R4) and the results are excellent

So, here's my kit for photo and video. I am trying to decide how and where to upgrade, as currently, I have no issues
aside from 30 minute time limit on the older camera bodies for video. Just not sure how much I want to spend. I love the A9 speed, I love the A7r3 sensor and faster mechanical shutter. Sometimes I shoot photo and video at the same event.

A9
A7r3
A7SIII
Sony FS5II

16-35GM
24-105F4G
Sigma 24-70 ART
Batis 85F1.8
24F1.4 GM
Zeiss 555F1.8
Zeiss 35F1.4
Sony 70-200F2.8 OSS II

My kit hasn't really changed since late in 2022.

My main cameras are my Kolari Vision UT sensor modified A7rII used for particularly WA M-mount lenses and my A1 for my E mount lenses made by Voigtlander and Sony. Other camera bodies are my A7rIII and a stock A7r and a Kolari Vision V3 modified A7r. I also use my Sony bodies (mainly my A7rIII with a smaller grip than my A1 which I also use) as digital backs for my Cambo Actus Mini with full tilt capabilities with a series of lenses.

My M-mount lenses many of which I use with the TTartisan 6 bit Leca M to Sony Adapter include:

Voigtlander 12mm f5.6 Ultra Wide Heliar VIII VM modified by SK Grimes to use 62mm filters
Leica M WATE with my discontinued Phigment Leica M to NEX adapter
Leica M 24mm f3.8 Asph
Voigtlander 28mm f2 Ultron II VM
Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon ZM
Minolta CLE MC 40mm f2 M-Rokkor
Zeiss 85mm f4 Tele-Tessar ZM
Voigtlander 90mm f2.8 Apo-Skopar
Leica M 135mm f4 Tele Elmar V1

Leica R:

28mm f2.8 Super Angulon PC (mainly used on Cambo Actus but will use with my Sony Camera Bodies)
50mm f2 Summicron E55/V2
100mm f4 Bellows Macro lens (used mainly on Cambo Actus)
180mm f3.4 Apo-Telyt
80-200mm f4 Vario Elmar

Voigtlander E mount

50mm f2 Apo-Lanthar Asph
65mm f2 Macro Apo-Lanthar Asph
110mm f2.5 Macro Apo Lanthar

Sony

100-400mm f4.5-f5.6 GM
200-600mm f5.6-f6.3 G
1.4X and 2X Teleconverters

In mid/late October 2022, I added the Laowa 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift Lens in Canon EF mount to be shared between my Cambo Actus Mini in Sony E mount and my Sony bodies with a Canon EF to Sony adapter. I have just added a Novoflex Canon EF to Sony adapter which will hopefully as my other Novoflex adapters hit or almost hit the infinity stop for the Laowa lens and replace the Urth Canon EF to Sony adapter that is quite short for infinity focus.

Additonal Lenses for Cambo Actus:

Series of Apo Enlarger lenses made by Schneider Kreuznach and Rodenstock in focal lengths of 40mm, 50mm, 80mm, and 105mm.

55mm f5.6 Rodenstock Apo Digital in Copal 0.0 Shutter
90mm f5.6 Schneider Kreuznach Apo Digitar in Copal 0.0 Shutter
120mm Schneider Kreuznach Makro Symmar HM in Copal 0.0 Shutter
150mm f5.6 Apo Sinaron (Rodenstock 150mm f5.6 Apo Digital) in Copal 0.0 Shutter

Additional Large Format lenses and macro lenses made by Rodenstock, SK, Leitz/Leica, Canon, and Minolta
