  • Replied in illusion
    that is the only thing which is important. it is, more than you think, otherwise I wouldn't be able to produce great photos. Only I don't think that equivalence is important for what I'm doing, ...
  • Replied in illusion
    No I mean 35-100mm 2.8 and you can save me the equivalence crap. Sorry, I'm a practical photographer and not a gearhead, I take photos and make money out of them. and my photos are always great, ...
  • Replied in illusion
    That is because you never had a chance to shoot an 8 hours event using two FF dSLR cameras with 24-70mm f/2.8 on one and a 70-200mm f/2.8 on the second. I did it for many years and believe me, the ...
  • Well this is a very interesting assumption so let's see. The following series of 15 photos was shot using 5 cameras. A Canon x400 P&S camera, a Sony F828 bridge, A Sony R1, Canon 40D and Camon 5D. ...
  • Exactly. For example, we may assume that within the context of visual properties, for a certain case, one may only be interested in avoiding motion blur and keeping a desired brightness. While ...
  • Funny that you mention it because I did exactly the same test but comparing it to a 45mm f/1.8. We were shooting the Venive Carnival last year and I took one portrait shot with my em5 and the ...
  • does this also means that effectively, depending of course on some assumption, f/2.8 = f/2.8 or is that term banned here too? Just asking Moti
  • Oh I see, is there a difference? moti
  • Thanks for popping in. Now the thread will reach 150 in no time just due too equivalence fanboys of both sides ;-) Cheers Moti
  • I think that you didn't read my post because I was actually talking all the time about the 50-200mm which is not a bad lens with bluish tint as you think and btw, the 12-50mm isn't one either. Moti
  • That all depend on how you looked at the prints. When I pixel peep, I always discover lots of flaws with any lens. That's why I stopped it. I believe that the real advantage of the 40-150mm ...
  • yes, there will be but you'll be able to notice it only if you print large and look from close distance. If you will look at the prints from a normal viewing distance, depending on the contend, ...

    This is one of the best sources ever. The Strobist moti
  • There is nothing misleading or in fair with it. Everyone who can read, could clearly se that I mentioned several times that I talk about a second hand lens. Therefore, it is up to everyone to ...
  • Sorry you are right, I forgot the adaptor. My bad. Moti
  • All that is true but I wasn't trying to compare apples with apples, I just tried to point out that  there are alternative deals that maybe are not exactly the same apples, but by all means can be ...
  • At least this is what the brigade of fanboys believes whenever they are involved in one of the utterly stupid equivalence discussions that pops up every now and then like mushrooms after the rain. ...
  • Here is what I think. It goes without saying that the new 40-150 f/2.8 is great lens and if combined with the 1.4 TC, you'll get an additional range of 60 mm. Not very exciting because this will ...
  • That is true, you do lose about 1/2 a stop towards the end of the zoom range and of course you get a wider zoom range. But than people would invest more money for a 1.4 tele converter forgetting ...
  • I guess that you are missing the opportunity to spend lots of money on something you already have. I paid less than 500$ on a mint 50-200 swg and I really can't see any reason to switch. But I have ...
