My Three Cameras

Nikon Z50

Leica Q
As I wrote in my previous post, I only need three cameras.  The Nikon APS-C Z50 is mainly for travel.  It is a very light camera, less than one pound. My Leica Q its for family photos especially for the holidays.  The Q has a sensor of 24 MP and a 28mm f/1.7 lens.  Therefore, it shoots 24MP at 28mm, 12MP at 35mm, and 7.5MP at 50mm. The Leica Q2 is exactly the same camera and lens with a 46MP sensor. The main difference is that it shoots 46MP at 28mm, 30MP at 35mm, 20MP at 50mm, and 7.5MP at 75mm. To upgrade it would cost met around $3,250, if I can sell my Leica Q first. It is a big decision, but I have time to make it, if I really need to upgrade.

The Nikon Z7 is Full Frame Camera with a 46MP sensor. I will use it as my main camera for shoots around Los Angeles. The complement of lenses for the Z7 are:

Zoom Lenses

AF-S Nikkor 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED-Fish
Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 S
Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S
Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD

Prime Lenses

Sigma DG 15mm f/2.8 EX-Fisheye
Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S
Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF Lens for Sony E
Nikon Z7

Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD
Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 Lens for Sony E

It is also my main camera for Macro/Table-Top Photography.  For that purpose I have the following lenses:

Sigma DG 50mm f/2.8 EX Macro
Sigma DG 70mm f/2.8 EX Macro
Sigma DG 150mm f/2.8 EX APO Macro
