Swarovski, in my opinion, can't be beaten in the high quality optics market. I use my 10x40 EL binoculars and an 80 HD with a 20x60 zoom eyepiece.”

Canon Cameras and Lenses

“I use several Canon cameras for all of my photographic work. The sharpest and fastest lens on the market today, which is a must for anyone serious about photography, is a Canon 300mm 2.8 lens. A nice all-round lens is the Canon 100-400mm lens. I now also use a Canon 600mm F4 IS  MK2 lens,and a Canon G1 X.

For Macro work, I recommend a 100mm IS Macro lens. Of course, let’s not forget the standard 50mm lens, which should always be close at hand. Converters are 2X1.4 and 2x plus extension tubes. The superb Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens.  & 70-200 2.8 IS”

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

“With 22.3 million effective pixels, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III's sensor only has 1.2MP more than the 21.1MP Canon EOS 5D Mk II that it replaces. However, it has 4.2MP more than the 18.1MP Canon EOS-1DX at the top of Canon's DSLR lineup.”

“Whereas the Canon 1DX has two Digic 5+ processors, the 5D Mk II has just one, which in combination with its eight-channel readout means that it has a top continuous shooting speed of six frames per second.”


“The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has the same 61-point wide-area autofocus system as the flagship Canon EOS-1DX. This is a big improvement on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, which has nine user-selectable AF points and six assist points, giving a total of 15.”

“Of these 61 points, 41 are cross-type and five are dual cross-type points, which is great news for accuracy. The customisable AF presets introduced in the Canon EOS-1D X are also available, which helps when shooting more challenging subjects according to Canon.”

Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Optically, the lens is excellent, resolving a lot of detail with a high level of contrast. For those serious about their macro images, the Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a great lens.
