What’s In My Kit

My Sony Kit

Imagine my surprise when, after updating and adding to my kit I logged on to update the page and discover that I didn’t have one.
I was sure that I did, since this is exactly what just happened. But, now here I am creating a page for my kit.

Why you might ask. Why do you need a page for that. I don’t. But I want to add one, so here it is.

Starter Kit

I started my journey in Photography, like a lot of photographers and beginners did with a starter camera. Mine was the Sony a6000. It’s actually a pretty decent camera, that served me well…except in lowlight.

The Duke of Camera Bodies

The a6000’s lacking lowlight capabilities is what drove my need to upgrade to the Sony a7iii. And that was the only reason. I wanted the ability to shoot after sunset and though the a6000 did allow you to do that, the images were noisy and autofocus didn’t work so well.

So here we are today, with my mostly complete kit. I say mostly because I have all the lenses I need for what I do and plan to do. But there is one “nice to have” lens that I’m thinking about. It’s the Sony 70-200 G Master 2.8. Do I need it, no, do I want it…yes. And that’s what will drive this purchase. Probably sooner rather than later. Time will will tell.

The Kit

So without further ado;

  • Sony a7iii
  • Sony 28-70 Kit lens
  • Sigma 24-70 2.8 DG DN Art
  • Sony 16-35 2.8 G Master
  • Sony 85 1.4

I do have other lenses that I was using with my APSC body. The Kit lens that it came with, a Sigma 16mm 1.4 and Sony 55-210. They also served me will but I don’t use them anymore. There really is no need. I’ll save them and the body for when my son who also shoots, wants to mess around with Mirrorless.

So there you have it, that’s my kit…for now.

Until next time…
