People are always asking my favorite lens, or what camera I shoot with, and though I wrote a post a while ago, What’s inside my camera bag, I need to update it! All of these links are affiliate links to Amazon, which means, if you purchase an item I’ve shared about (within 24 hours) I earn a small percentage, at no extra cost to you. This helps fund the time and expenses for me to run this site, so even if you don’t purchase right away, if you come back to my site and click on a link when you do buy, it will help me in my efforts to share all the free stuff here even more!

Below, you’ll find the camera I currently shoot with, and the lenses I use. You’ll notice 2 different 85mm lenses. The 1.8 lens has been my favorite for portraits, but it kinda broke, and I upgraded to the 1.2 recently, which I’d been contemplating for 2 years. You can see why, it was a BIG purchase! I also have 2 50mm lenses, the first being the 1.8, which I recommend in my Say NO to Auto book, as being the best and least expensive learning lens, at $100. I used it for years, then upgraded to the 1.4 which is still pretty inexpensive for a nice lens. I only have the 1.8 listed below.

If you’re not sure what camera to buy to start with, I always say to buy a basic model, and get great lenses. Here are my tips and where I started with a comaera on this post: How to decide what camera to buy
