Hello folks Ok, this comes somewhat as an odd question but the pretext for actually asking this is because I found a pretty good deal for a Nikon 1 32mm f/1.2 lens at a clearance sale. Loving doing low light photography it sounds to be one kind of a dream lens, especially where the street price is around 850$ otherwise. The thing is, I already own a Nikon J1, which is a very enjoyable camera, and I was wondering how suitable the J1 is having this f/1.2 lens mounted or if it would be somewhat...

Price difference these days is negligible, but most review sites are NOT very helpful with a comparison. And what of the UWA Tokinas vs Sigmas? --Sensors capture and render that light, so best sensor always wins despite glass outlasting the sensors.

I am wrestling with the title question and no one I have talked to can answer it...yet. The Nikon P900 can go to 2000mm optical. But this is not about the P900. The question is really "how far away can a long lens resolve feather/eye detail in a large bird...eagle for example.  Here is my argument..... I believe that a lens must have some optical properties tied to physics that says for example that any lens can resolve small detail only to a limited distance. Beyond that distance the lens or...

Saw on their web site that my LCS got in a used Panasonic 14mm F2.5, so popped in on my way to work to check it out.  It's the v1 version of the lens, and it appears to be like new.  Seemed sharp on my camera, so I snapped it up! Questions:  1. I see in older threads the statement that the v1 and v2 vary only in cosmetics.  Is that correct? 2. Anything I should watch out for using it on my E-M10ii? it's my first non-Oly lens. 3. How much distortion does the GWC1 wide converter add?  I'd like...

I recently went and got a M43/EF speedbooster from Metabones -- I went their website to download the newest firmware, and when I opened the EF-M43 Firmware, the app opened up as reading: (Metabones App v2.1 (E-mount v.48)) I tried the windows link, as well as the EF-E Smart Adapter Link, and all of them came up as: (Metabones App v2.1 E-mount v.48) My speedbooster is not being seen, and I am curious as to whether Metabones has the wrong firmware link up, or there is something wrong with the...

Hi, I just received XE2 kit bought from Adorama yesterday. Tried to update the firmware. I think the camera came at v2.1 from the Exif info in the jpeg. I could not find function in the menu to check the Firmware version? Here are my dilemma: I format a SD card in the camera, downloaded v4.0 firmware from Fuji web, and copied to the SD card. After Insert to the camera, turn it on, push "Disp/Back" button, it didn't show the "Firmware info" like instruction. Anything I missed?    Thanks for...

This lens will not AF on my EM1.  I have asked Metabones to comment.  CS acknowledged my first two e-mails but no further response over more than two weeks. The lens will AF on a Canon body.  On my A7R it AFs slowly and inaccurately (which is OK).  I bought the combo principally for my EM1. On the EM1 it does not move the focus motor at all.  In SAF, it shows the focus point.  If I manually focus (in SAF), it will report lock when the shutter button is half depressed, The body reports focal...

Hi Folks, My GX8 is on the original firmware (doesn't support the dual IS etc). I deliberately held off updating the firmware straight away to see if there would be any gotchas such as the dual IS actually degrading the performance in some cases (this was in V2.0 right?) So what is the consensus - is all ok now? no problems updating the firmware to the latest version? (which see is now 2.1 - so I'm hoping any glitches in 2.0 are sorted?) TIA Ga.

I just updated to version 3 of the A7Rii firmware (from v2) and took a couple of pictures. I uploaded to Lightroom and discovered the filename has changed from DSCnnnnn.RAW to _DSCnnnn.RAW. I don't believe I changed anything else that might have resulted in this difference, and I can't find anything in the menus that might fix it. I googled for this issue and searched the forums without getting a hit so it's either just me or no-one else is bothered by it. Has anyone else noticed this? Is...
