A nice list of equipment!

I have done a similar one at home, but for the purposes of insurance! I thought it would be a good idea to maintain a list of equipment, including valuations and serial numbers, in case anything/everything gets nicked or the house burns down! When you include valuations, the list gets really eye-watering!

I was also wondering which is your sharpest lens, based on what I've seen of my own. I would say that your 85mm f1.8 would be the sharpest, possibly by some margin, even allowing for the 24-105L. Certainly, mine is sharper than my 24-70L. Do you agree?

Hi Janey, i know what you mean about the kit! i bought a 17-40 and hoped my partner did not notice! it sort of looks like the 24-105! lol you have some really lovely portraits in your portfolio can you share your methods? how do you find the lightsphere? i was thinking of getting one but is it worth it?

Kind Regards

Julie

Thanks Steve, I definately think the prime lenses are the sharpest, I have had some fantastic results with the 60mm macro in the past. I am really pleased with the 24-105mm lens though...thats L glass for you!

Well the lightsphere does produce quite nice results...it just looks really silly! LOL Regarding my lighting, I have got a shot of my studio in my p/f..pretty basic but it suits my needs. My biggest tip is never under estimate the power of a reflector!
