  • I would not call this lens totally useless, but it is true it is one of the least used lens in my collection. Perhaps the DOF offered by N1 is minimal, so it really doesn't matter if its aperture ...
  • Hi Master Huang, May i know how much would that cost me to fix if my CX 70-300 failed? want to know so I can adjust how much money i should spend on this lens used.
  • With these type of lenses on the roadmap, EF-M sure is heading end of the road. I suspect the 22mm, 32mm lenses are just skin-change lens with same design and same lens elements.
  • Even worse, Sigma and Tamron might not risk producing RF-S mount lens for the system. There have been compatibility issues of 16, 30, 56 primes people are complaining about while Canon just dont ...
  • Do these deals happen regularly? I rarely seen one throughout my lifetime. Perhaps Canon dont do hese deals on my country. However if it ever happens, i have my eye on M50. I hope they have got ...
  • Actually 80% of the conveniental users are like that. They are not engaged in the community, mainly use their cameras for the first year then leave it in a drybox after a year of boring photos. ...
  • Indeed, this presents a better than ever opportunity to buyer Canon EOS M series used. Sooner or later people will be rushed to sell their EF-M gears at significant discount.
  • Its a decen deal, so bad im in Hong Kong. I agreed the Japanese dealers often sell good quality stuff but their asking price are often rediculous!
  • Delighted to hear from your experience. Today i have purchased my used 32 F1.2 at steep discount knowing it can be fixed, i can finally feel the peace of mind owning one.
  • I wont really consider NX Mini as another option, given you only have 3 lenses to choose from (the 9mm kit, 9-27mmkit and 17 1.8 prime). In most occasions, 9mm kit is the only lenses you could ...
  • Pretty flowers you have got! Generally, i use my J5 for streetphotography and snapping so when i bought the 85micro i have a very clear vision that it would be used for candid photos, snaps, ...
  • It is almost impossible to get N1 brand new nowadays, if that is a concern perhaps its really time to move on fix lens 1" camera like Canon Sony Panasonic models. To me clinging on N1 is mainly due ...
  • Nikon 1 is an unique system which no other platform can easily replace, its more like pentax Q turbocharged with high IQ and extreme AF speed, done correctly, it can be used professionally too. ...
  • The 85micro isnt a sharp lens even on DX F mount according to online resources i have just read. However, it somehow have shown better colour than my 40Micro and native 30-110 lens (both looks ...
  • Created discussion thread This boy is huge on my J5 (DX 85Micro)
    Against all odds, i have finally acquired this fantasy lens I have dream of every night. It is huge in size but lightweight enough i won't complain. The lens isn't as sharp as i anticipated from a ...
  • Test shot with the newly acquired 85Micro lens on J5.
  • Agreed, a magic lantern for J5, with vlogging features. But im super sure Nikon will be motivated to stop this from happening.
  • Replied in Condition
    Your comment reminded me one thing I hated the most.... is people who are hoarding gears for the sake of profit but show utterly no interest or appreciation on the item they are selling. I saw them ...
  • As a newbie camera hoarder / collector, i must say, buying used gears on ebay is probably the dumbest thing anyone could do. Almost all gears with some collectible value are jack-up ridiculously. ...
  • Thank you Paul, your story is enlightening. I was worried so much my N1 collection might kick a bucket one day now knowing Master Huang is here to help, i shall keep going. Just bought my 40mm ...
