Re: Just bought my Df a new toy


There's no optical difference between the AI and the AIS versions. That mainly had to do with the stop down rate of the aperture blades. That allowed for Shutter Priority shooting on the FA.

Mine isn't quite all there. It is a recycled unit from an MRI. And has no aperture blades at all. So, only wide open shooting with this one. That doesn't bother me as I wanted it for rendering point light sources as points at night. Which means wide open anyway.

The restriction was well worth it as I paid all of $600 for it.

And the AFS 58 doesn't do the point light sources like the old Noct does. I have yet to see if the new Z Noct does, but I'm betting it does.
