  • Even Germans (as well as Austrians and Swiss) themselves say: Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache...!

    ;D

  • Leonard, Thanks a lot for your feedback. Yes, I certainly have outgrown my childhood, but no, the point isn't 'what do I buy next'. I'm just in the process of upgrading to FF, and since I plan to ...
  • Hi, I found an offer for a Nikon EM combined with a Vivitar 135mm/2,8. I hate to ask stupid questions, but can I use this lens on a D610? :-) If so, how does it compare to the Nikkor 135/2.8 AI(S)? ...
  • What about the Sigma 50mm/1.4 EX DG? Would that be an acceptable alternative? (Since no one knows when the Sigma Art 50mm/1.4 DG shows up?)
  • Hi Stacey, Thanks a lot for your feedback! :-) Do you mean "busy" in the following sense? http://www.flickr.com/photos/thedigitalfly/4636358199/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/thedigitalfly/4281894635/ ...
  • Hi Dino, Yes, that's quite amazing. Although the max setting might be way too much for my taste. BTW: What do you mean by 'dodge in the middle for a milder effect'? This might be of minor ...
  • My bad! I thought of the rotating focus ring...
  • Scott, I really appreciate your feedback - even though you might have changed over to the opposite camp. ;D I just don't see why a focal length of 50mm should be inappropriate for shooting people. ...

    Thanks, Luke! Great compilation, very helpful. And a lot of food for thought. :-) Apropos 50mm: I make extensive use of the Nikon 35 f/1.8 when shooting kids with my D90 (1.5 crop), in other words ...
  • Rservello, Thanks a lot! :-) I'm of the same opinion, I prefer buying two or three lenses of high quality to building up a huge arsenal of mediocre lenses... But before I spend a great deal of ...
  • Replied in 80-200 f2.8
    Stacey, Thanks for your input. I'm sorry to say that I'm not very enthusiastic about zoom lenses. And what's more, the 80 - 200 f/2.8 is HUGE... PS. I hope I didn't disturb your private ...
  • Replied in My Experience
    Raymond, Someone told me that the Zeiss 135 f/2.0 requires Live View when shooting wide open, for the simple reason that the lens is incredibly sharp and therefore doesn't forgive any imprecision. ...
  • Thanks Howard, Didn't take that one into consideration! :-)
  • Dodi, MANY thanks for your feedback, it has been of great help to me! Now I've got appetite for the 105 f/2.5! The more so as these lenses should be available at reasonable prices. The Zeiss 100/2 ...
  • 9ck, many thanks for the valuable information! :-) Even for me coming from the D90 the clustered AF points of the D610 were something unexpected. But I guess that's the price you have to pay when ...
  • Bob, thanks for your reply! The 85 f/1.8G is relatively inexpensive, so I'll definitely give it a try. I'm sure I'd love the shallow DOF of the 85 f/1.4 G but I cannot afford it (now).
  • Hugo, Many thanks for your feedback! Is there a huge difference between the 105/2.5 and the 105/2.8?
  • Created discussions Advice for portrait lenses
    After using a D90 for more than five years I finally made the switchover to full frame - and I have absolutely no regrets about picking the D610. :-) But having an FX body is only half the story, ...
  • Dennis, Thanks for your great feedback! :-) But isn't $600 a stiff price for an APS-C 35/1.4, too? Anyway, in my home country (Austria) I never saw any discounted prices for Fuji lenses. That's ...
  • Frederick, I agree with you, equipment is overrated. This is why I try to reduce to the max: Apart from the D90 which accompanies me for more than 5 years now I never bought a DSLR. And with regard ...
