Frequently asked “What equipment do you use?”, John has supplied the following list of some of his gear.

Lenses


“The most important items of all in the kit bag are the lenses I use. If they are not of the highest quality, then even the most expensive camera body behind them will be a waste of money.”
 
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14 mm 1:2.8 PRO Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40 mm 1:2.8 PRO Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 40-150mm 1:2.8 PRO Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 EZ Lens

Olympus MC-14 1.4X Teleconverter for the M40-150mm PRO Lens
Cameras


“Most folk know that I use Olympus cameras and their Zuiko lenses but they might not know why. I look for quality of build and performance, leading edge technology with ease of use, value for money; and I like to travel light. Olympus have met my criteria ever since my first OM1 SLR in 1976.”

Apple iMac 27 - I have transferred all of my photographic work to this outstanding machine. How did I ever manage without it?

Jobo Giga Vu Pro - A must for reviewing images on its 4 inch screen whilst on location and for showing clients. (I said I liked to travel light and I certainly don’t want to lug a PC around with me.) It saves me a fortune in contact prints.

 
Acer V193 in my ‘PC Darkroom’ - Not used so much now but it's useful for checking website appearance and image management on a Windows PC.
