Hi. I've been trying to research macro lenses for a GH4 on line. I'll spot macro lenses that say they are for micro four thirds but then will specify a line of cameras other than the GH4. Wondering if anyone can recommend a macro lens that will work on the GH4. For what it's worth, I want to be able to film insects -that is pretty small subjects - and that at a comfortable, non-intrusive distance - if that's possible. If a powerful enough macro for my purposes is hard to find for this...

I have been thinking of upgrading my lens (which now is the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS) that came with my canon EOS Rebel T1i. I have found some lenses at a nearby local shop for a nice price but am not sure if they are better than the one I have now, and if they are whiwh one should I pick knowing thet my main requirement is a good zoom. 75-300 CANON 1:4-5.6 EF III 90-300MM CANON 1:4.5-5.6 75-300MM CANON ULTRASONIC 1:4-5.6

Hi there, my 1st post in this section of the forum...I tend to "lurk" for the most part, but try to be active now an again! Ive just got a V1/FT1 and J1 recently, so was wondering what to expect in regards to image quality for close up/macro photography. My subjects being Butterflies/Reptiles/Dragonflies/Bugs etc. I have a D700, and both the nikon macro/micro 105mm VR lens, an also a Sigma 150mm F/2.8 APO DG macro lens too. But to be honest, most of my close up/macro work is shot using a...

Hi all, I have a Canon 500D camera. The AF suddenly stopped working with my Sigma lenses: 10-20 1:4-5.6 DC HSM 18-35 1:1.8 DC There are no noises it looks like it's not even trying to do anything apart from the flashing red af points.   Manual focus works fine, the camera can sense the correct focus. I've tried the camera with my Tamron 90mm and the AF worked fine. I've tried the Sigma 18-35 lens on my friend's camera and it worked perfectly. I've blown out any dust in sensor cleaning...

Hi all,, i'm still using a good-old 1dmark2 body, which doesn't have built-in external flash control function as recent models of EOS. I wonder if there's any flash controlling transmitter available for 1dmark2 body --> which enables me to       ● remotely adjust the light amount, and/or       ● switch the metering mode(ETTL vs Manual) , and/or       ● ratio and(or) Group settings  regardless the lack of built-in function in its body. I'm currently using    - yn600ex-rt    - Sigma 500dg...

I just recently received a canon 50mm F1.4 which seems to be extremely soft wide open, is it the lens or is it normal? This is a shot with f1.4. It is not a bad shot, all of the shots are very similar to this one. This is a shot with f2.2 which is a lot more sharper. Another thing I wonder about, my friend has Nikkor 35 f1.8g which is WAY sharper at f1.8 than my canon at f2.2.My camera is 500d, if this should matter. I am really surprised by the quality of the photo.

So, I started with a Rebel XT, moved on to a T1i... I'm now looking to upgrade to a new Canon body. With regards to the sound of the shutter/mirror specifically, are all the Rebel models pretty much the same in terms of how loud it sounds? If the T6i/T6s shutter is as loud as the T1i, then I definitely won't be considering it.  At this point, I'm 90% convinced I'll be to a 70D/7D mk II/6D (*maybe*) for a quieter shutter. I've watched a few youtube videos of recording the shutter noise for...

I know this is an often-asked question, but I have a very specific set of needs that I would like to solicit advice for. I currently have a T1i and am planning to upgrade to a new body before the end of the year. My main interest is with live-music photography, and what I'm looking for is focus accuracy, and good high-iso/low-light performance in an APS-C body. I mainly shoot with the 17-55 2.8 and the 135 2.0L. I don't care about video, fast burst modes, large buffers or sports...

Hey folks, I'm a novice photographer and have been learning with a Canon Rebel T1i along with a kit lens (18-55mm) and a 50mm prime.  I feel I'm ready to move on and upgrade my camera and I know this camera is quite a bit outdated now. My wife and I travel a bit and I love to practice photography as we go.  I've been wanting to downsize from the size of a DSLR to a mirrorless but still have great quality pictures.  After a fair amount of research and comparison of specs within this site and...
