  • Thanks kikivrany, I was familiar with the photozone tests, and I have heard that the DA70 is  sharp across the frame, even wide open. The problem was I don't have equivalent tets for the tamron ...
  • Thanks for all the responses, I would love the 77 classic limited , but it currently costs ~3 times the price of a used 70 limited. based on this and the positive feedbacks here I was leaning ...
  • Hi Tom, I have the Pantax-F 50mm F1.7, do you think it would be worthwhile to upgrade to the new 50mm F1.8 ? the price is definately super attractive, and the AF is proabaly a little more quiet ...
  • thanks Geoff, I hadn't really considered that, The pentax DA70 is indeed small and the 28-75 and 85mm and 90mm are huge by comparison. The weight isnt really an issue for me, and I don't do enough ...
  • thanks xmeda, all the recommended lenses sound great but are out of my current budget (cost between twice and three times the options above) except for the 18-50 which covers a range I already have ...
  • Created question thread portrait lens question
    Hi everyone, I wanted to consult with the form on a possible lens purchase. I'm pretty sure there is at least some LBA involved, and I deinfately dont really "need" it but I was thinking of ...
  • 1. very nice lenses, I'm a bit jelous :) 2. I'm probably not qualified to be giving adivce on this, so take the following with a grain of salt 3. both the focus on the eyes and the focus on the ...
  • wow, that is a great shot (the pollen totlly upgrades the shot). colors are out of this world.
  • congratulation on the win. the image is very nice, I'm a bit jelous. how did you do the lighting /background
  • I didn't like the withe theme either. too bright for me and I see no advantages over the current dark theme.
  • Replied in Super macro
    short answer: 1. the lens can shoot insects quite well, but you have to be relatively close. 2. the lens itself is a 1:1 macro, to get it into higher magnifications you would need extension tubes ...
  • Sorry, it may well be an optical illusion. I havent measured the effect is just seemed that way visually.
  • my 2c: 1 and 2 work well as B&W , and add a more gloomy look which suits the photo. 3 and 4 don't work well in B&W and color is preferable here (I also don't like them very much in color, sorry..) ...
  • Hi, here are my 2c: 1. the second version is definately better than the first one posted. 2. nice smile and eye contact from the subject, thewater fall dosn't take anything away from the subject ...
  • yes, much better (but you did miss a section, see in the image below). definately less disturbing visually. is now a well composed rural landsace with fewer distractions.
  • my problem with the second edited image is that the power lines were removed in a way that leaves visible arifcats. you can see the "ghost" of the wires in the coulds. this looks unnatural and ...
  • I'd go with the second one, here is my reasoning: 1.  too much water with almost no texture is a bit boring.  in the foreground strongly asymmetrical which bugs me for some reason (I think this ...
  • I have the FA 28mm F2.8 as well, I generally agree with the above. the lens has a short focus throw, so you can expect it to focus quickly even though it is screw driven AF. it woks well and is ...
