  • Ernst, Wow! I hope you find the black and white scans of Captain Beefheart's concert. He was also known as Don van Vliet. As far as 135mm lenses are concerned, I would recommend the Tamron 135/2.5 ...
  • Chris, I think the best option for you would be the A7rii. It has a wonderful evf, has silent shutter and in-body IS. You could also use your Canon lenses with it. Leica makes nice cameras and ...
  • The Voigtlaender 35/2.5 in Leica m mount is pretty compact and not too bad in the corners on the a7. Centre sharpness wide open is very good indeed.
  • I really cannot see what advantage you may get by switching to mirrorless. As a backup body, probably some. The a7rii has a silent shutter and it means a lot. I don't know whether it degrades ...
  • The 90/2 R summicron is a very good lens and it is built to last forever. I see that you have listed in your equipment the 90/2 apo m. Use this lens on the Sony and forget about anything else. If ...
  • I think Fuji manufactures only the lenses, Hasselblad maintain that they design them. Bodies and sensors - not the foggiest.

  • 52/1.2 is the lens. I've tried quite a few fast fifties, with or without focal reducers, you name it. The 56/1.2 is sharp wide open, the bokeh is gorgeous and the xt1 and xt10 have silent ...
  • I have both Canon and Nikon and cannot give definite advice. Go to a camera shop and try both with lenses of focal lengths and speed that are available in both brands. Look at the files on your ...
  • Hi Steven, in re Pentax 55/1.4 dsm Ventzi points out that it was only during this test that he managed to appreciate truly the brilliance of this lens. I don't know how the author quantifies that ...
  • Excellent write up, Ventzi! The Bulgarian text is a wonderful mixture of artistic and technical writing. I quite liked your description of the whimsical Noctilux that is not supposed to be extra ...
  • There are only a few Nikkor dx lenses. I used to use the 12-24 DX with the Nikon d800e and after 15 mm the lens stops vignetting. The lens is very good even wide open and the distortions are well ...
  • The worst thing - they stopped using the name Asahi on their bodies and lenses and this has been going on for nearly forty years! Inexcusable. Perhaps the Asahi brewery should start making ...
  • If one judges by the quality of the K3 and of the midformat offerings (especially the 645z, which according to some is the best camera on the market), the new 35mm Pentax will be very good indeed. ...
  • I may be able to suggest another combination that would give you relatively shallow dof for not a lot of money. Get the Samyang 85/1.4  in Nikon f mount and then get a focal reducer and give it a ...
  • Replied in Mike...
    I paid 2000 euros for a mint Leica m 90/2 apo summicron. Was it dosh well frittered away? I don't know. Love the lens, though. I almost ended up buying the Nikkor 300/2 AIS ED in the original f ...
  • Elvis has just left the building. Those are his footprints out there...
  • Дорогой Ираклий, You are an irreverend mocker :-))) You might like to have a go at illustrating or visualising some частушки. For your theatre designs, do you draw inspiration from the Russian ...
  • Shigzeo, thank you very much for your thoughtful post. I have the a7 and perhaps I should concentrate on using the leica glass I have with this body. My thinking is that if the M240 (P) has been ...
  • Of course it is a mistake, IMVHO. Crippling of functionality. I had the m9p and exchanged it precisely because of the lack of live view. There are quite a few lenses that are just as good as leica ...
  • Fuji makes the Hasselblad HC lenses. Some authors say Fuji also deigns them, others maintain that Fuji produces only according to Hasselblad specifications. I haven't read anything about Fuji ...
