Sergei Yurin is an excellent example that a photographer produces great photography, not the camera.
Pundits will say, “You’re insane. Are you actually insinuating that your puny micro four thirds camera can compete against my full frame Canon 5D?”
No, what I’m saying is that there’s a skill element in photography. There isn’t a shadow of a doubt that equipment does help to an extent, but if Tiger Woods bought a $12 golf club at Walmart – he’d still crush you in golf. Get the point?
For seven years, Yurin has used a Canon 5D Mark II, among other Canon cameras, along with a variety of Canon L glass lenses. That was until he switched over to the Micro Four Thirds January of 2013 – specifically, the Olympus OMD E-M5 (see the lenses he currently uses below the gallery).
With Yurin’s permission, we’ve happy to showcase his work on m43:
Yurin’s current setup is as follows:
- Olympus E-M5
- Olympus E-P5
- Oly 75/1.8
- Oly 45/1.8
- Oly 60/2.8 macro
- PL 25/1.4
- Panasonic 12-35/2.8
- Oly 9-18/4-5.6
