Photo gear

"Camera equipment itself does not take pictures - photographers do that"
(quote by John Shaw, amongst my favourite nature photographers)

...nevertheless, for those who might care, here is a brief description of the photo equipment that I am currently using.

I mainly do landscape and travel photography and enjoy working slowly and deliberately, using fixed focal length ("prime") lenses rather than zooms.
I also seek lenses that allow me to get as much as possible right in camera, without having to resort to the crutch of post processing in order to "fix" defects such as chromatic aberration, flare, etc.
