If you are like me, then you like to peer into your fellow angler’s fly box, you are curious about what rod, reel and line combination he is using (you even ask to try it out sometimes!), and you wonder what camera gear he is carrying in his backpack. Hence I thought you might be interested in glancing into my trustful Dryzone Rover Löwepro photo-gear backpack. My religion is Nikon. I use a D7000 body. It is not a professional full-frame body, but does perform incredibly well. I combine it with the following lenses:
- An AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens. This is my work horse, the lens I use in most situations. Very sharp, wide angle.
- An AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens. Excellent zoom with vibration reduction which enables sharp pictures from far away even without tripod.
- An AF Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 DX lens. Perfect for portraits, low light conditions. Blurs the background efficiently while the subject in focus stands out. Does not forgive focusing errors!
- An AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8 VR lens. Crystal sharp lens for close up photos like fish portraits or fly shots. I also use it for more distant shooting, as its lens quality makes up for excellent quality photographs.
I top this equipment with a Nikon SB-600 flash, a tripod, and spare SD cards and batteries.
