Stuff I use…

I almost exclusively use the Nikon DSLR FX system… mostly because I’ve been entrenched in this system since about 1995 and it is extremely familiar to me. For the most part, moving to a new camera is quite rapid and in-camera controls change infrequently. The F-mount, unchanged since 1959, allows for a very large selection of classic Nikon lenses, if need be (over 400). Here’s what’s currently in, or usually fairly close to, “the bag(s)” :
