Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Review Date: Nov 23, 2020 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Workhorse camera, solid build, dual card slots
Getting outdated

I have a MkIII as my backup camera, and it's such a solid workhorse. Even as it's sister the MkIV has a touchscreen and a few other bells and whistles, the MkIII provides consistently good images and better autofocus. I love that it has dual card slots so I can create a backup as I shoot- ESSENTIAL for weddings. Even now that it's a couple models outdated, I will still keep it as my backup/second/go-to camera.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Nov 23, 2020 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Flexible, versatile, great colors, fast focus
Can sometimes be too crisp for fine art photography

This lens is my workhorse for situations where I need to work quickly, capture a lot and deliver standard images. Great for event photography, portraiture in a pinch, and for a fast paced environment. I love being able to cover all of the standard focal lengths and have the versatility.

The skintones aren't as creamy and even as some of the nicer fixed prime lenses, but they will still edit nicely. This lens is nice and sharp and will deliver solid images every time.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Nov 23, 2020 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Gorgeous skin tones, beautiful bokeh, such a creamy fine art look to this lens
The chromatic aberration, especially at the low f-stops desired for fine art film emulation is very intense. Sometimes so much so that I can't clean it up all the way within lightroom.

This lens is attached to one of my cameras for every session. A beautiful lens that is a very versatile focal length and has fantastic fine art film emulation qualities. It's sturdy and well built- be prepared for some weight, but it's so worth it for the image quality. Overall I love this lens. My only complaint is the extreme chromatic aberration that comes with my lens... it's very intense sometimes.
