Re: i shoot mf lenses most of the time
In reply to Tom Caldwell, Feb 4, 2014

I dare to say i have gathered quite amount of mf glass. 7 full frame and 4 c-mount.
the full frame lenses give me quality, the c-mount lenses are just for fun/night shooting (6-12mm f1.4)
i shoot mf lenses a lot, more than my native (i own just 2)
my favourites are the minolta 50mm f2, tokina 28mm f2.8.
the minolta must be focused using magnified view since it has a narrow dof.
the tokina can be focused without magnification, although its not fail safe.
i tap the screen and i have full magnified view, half press the shutter button, and normal view pops up. simple and effective.
