  • Replied in Not so!
    And what were their production figures? Never said it cannot be done but your entire aguement is becoming more and more irrelevant as you spiral closer and closer to my initial observation that ...
  • Replied in Not so!
    Pretty much the entire statement, read the attached link. You also missed a key factor lower cost due to increased production otherwise referred to as economics of scale, which I pointed out ...
  • Replied in Not so!
    Yup realize that as sensor size decrease lens size would as well. Granted that makes you wonder why folks want to attached DSLR lenses on these smaller bodies….. However I suspect you over ...
  • Have you tried the focus tracking? I've been playing around with it for a while and find it pretty handy on subjects that aren't moving too much. More a matter of compensating photographer drifting….
  • Likely a combination of cost, weight and design. Fast glass tends to get big and heavy granted Leica was able to cover this with the 28-600 f2.8 (constant) on the Panasonic FZ cameras albeit with ...
  • Replied in Best of Three?
    I wound up with a good selection of lenses for the Canon FD series since primes were a lot sharper then zooms back then (late 60'). When I flipped over to EOS around 87 I bit the bullet and ...
  • Replied in Best of Three?
    Ok that is good to hear. Taking apart a lens isn't much fun! I have had to 'field strip' a lens or two in my time but not highly recommended.  This was a Sigma 28-200 K mount that I picked up with ...
  • It's a great lens for the price. My current walkabout/sketching lens on the V2. In terms of investment my take on all of this is, if you enjoy using the camera and it works for you then it is worth ...
  • Replied in Best of Three?
    Interesting, for me and the type of equipment I use one would think that the DL might be something I would consider. Oddly enough nope, even though I wrote about my paranoia of interchanging ...
  • Replied in Best of Three?
    That is good to hear about the N1's. Troubling about the FZ200 though. Granted I have seen this type of issue with fixed lens cameras in the past so it doesn't exactly surprise me especially given ...
  • Replied in Best of Three?
    I think I'm doing the same thing as you Tord. Picking up gear suited to the situation. As much as I like the idea of lens interchangeability one thing I discovered when shooting with the EOS M is ...
  • Replied in I hope so.
    For someone like me it would be more a matter of convenience as I would be using multiple bodies. For example I shoot with Canon (yeah I know why do I have a Nikon) but having bodies that used the ...
  • I guess I looked at this a bit differently having just ordered the 70-300 yesterday. If the system gets killed that will mean that components are going to be a lot more difficult to come by except ...
  • Thanks! Think she will like the new lens, I placed an order for one up here. They are very hard to come by it seems as the dealer says it will take up to 4 weeks to get one and my guess is that it ...
  • I have the 10-100 as my walk about lens on my V2 it is a lot larger and heavier then the 30-110 but more useful for what I need. I wonder if the J5 might keep dropping in price a bit more as it is ...
  • Hi Tord, thanks for this post! Wife just dropped a bombshell on me this morning. Had been talking about my Nikon 1 V2 and finally buying the 70-300. She tells me she doesn't really like her 7D ...
  • I suspect this is where you are going to run into trouble, a $400 budget. It feels a bit optimistic given your wish list for primes. The 18mm is going to burn up almost half right out of the gate ...
  • Would have been nice to be longer as I do a lot of nature macro work but given the price point of $299 USD at B&H I'll more then likely pick one up. Even at the early adopter price.
  • 1. The widest zoom or crop with your feet when possible. I had to qualify that one as I had a picture of someone walking off a cliff while transfixed on their LCD. 2. As a street photographer I ...
  • Can't say I've ever had a bad experience as a customer. Can't say I've had a bad day experience as the guy behind the counter either. But I have seen a salesperson ignore someone because they ...
