Some Gear Recommendations

Every now and then I post a short blog listing a few of my gear recommendations. This is in no way definitive and it is purely based on my observations and experiences. Others may have different opinions. This is only an abbreviated list of stuff that just comes to mind. I’m sure I’ve forgotten to mention some great vendors and equipment.

The one and only reason why I’m even posting this is because I’ve found that so many photography enthusiasts spend a great deal of money on junk gear only to have to buy something all over again – money wasted.

But here goes…

Note: I’m not even going to get into cameras, but my advice is to stay with a top brand like Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji etc.

Really good Canon lenses:

Canon TSE 24mm (the optics on this lens are incredible)

Canon 70-200 f2.8L (all-round fantastic performer)

Canon 24-70 f2.8L (wonderful lens with great bokeh)

Canon 50mm f1.2L (solid build, great optics and bokeh)
