This rose in my kitchen was taken with a Sony A580 & Grip fitted with a Sigma 105mm EX macro lens.

Shot hand-held – and yes that’s a problem at half life-size, hence the ‘bokeh’.

Currently, I’m using a Sony Alpha 580 (donated to me by Sony) and I have a selection of lenses from Konica Minolta, Minolta or Sigma.

I’ve used Panasonic stuff occasionally previously but if it’s not with the Sony, it’s with a Nikon these days.
