  • Only got the camera and lens back today. When we get some blue sky days will check it out properly with both RAW files and jpeg shots. Initial shots on a gloomy low light grey sky day were not ...
  • Yep, new lens is sharper across the frame. Camera and lens still responds like a Canon 40D and kit lens - i.e. default images are relatively soft but if you wind up the sharpness you get a uniform ...
  • Lens returned to supplier for replacement. Hope the next one is better!
  • Created user reviews First impressions

  • My Mid 2010 machine which has recently been upgraded with a 1Tb fusion drive seemed to be slow to respond when you clicked on something. Somewhat disappointing to say the least. Trawled the ...
  • Used to use FastStone with Windows but now use Lyn on my iMac. Cost me £15 or so but there are very few free photo viewer programs for Mountain Lion etc. Very silly name for a program but it does ...
  • Bought one, new, on Ebay. Had to wind it up to f8 to get it properly sharp in the centre, all 4 corners were too soft. My Pany 14-45 did much better at 14mm. In the end sent the 14mm back and got ...
