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

Lenses

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.”
