  • One thing worth pointing out is that none of the three adapters have a tripod socket - I've tried the 17mm with an adapter (the filter one) on the R and it was VERY VERY front heavy - nikon seemed ...
  • I have the 17 and 24 - i want the 50mm but not sure i "need"it, the 17mm sees the most use for me - mainly architecture, realestate and industrial/infrastructure/construction work (the later of ...
  • No Worries - I got mine the next day - it's very sharp and i'm happy with that but i'm running into annoying AF issues - i've spent a little while calibrating it (i also got the dock as i have the ...
  • Just ordered the 24mm ART thanks to ebay having their 20% off tech sale (AUS) that conveniently started today :) I checked it out in a store yesterday but diddn't pull the trigger mostly because i ...
  • I'm very happy with my 24-70mk2 at 24mm and f2.8, but recent;y can't seem to shake the want for an f1.4 - this isn't a need that is going to pay off in a business sense, just a personal ...
  • Created discussion thread Weird/corrupted border on G1x mk3 files
    Anyone seeing this in Lightroom? - it's only on a few shots so far that i've noticed, weird Black strip down the left side and a smeared border on around the others (this is at ISO 6400 if your ...
  • Replied in Lens cap fault
    You can put a 37mm uv/protection filter on the front - thats how i've been using it for a two week trip to hong kong and Japan - didn't use the cap once, but did wipe the filter a fair bit as it ...
  • Replied in Image quality?
    About to go on 2 week holiday with the camera and no computer - hopefully Adobe will have a present for my on my return :)
  • Replied in Image quality?
    No worries mate... It's smaller, lighter, faster, doesn't zoom as far but wider, definitely more useable which was my problem with the old G1x I also forgot to apologize in the original post - I ...
  • Replied in Image quality?
    spent the morning grabbing some shots on the way to work. These are out of camera jpegs in Large (fine) with picture style set to standard (i know it has sharpness at 5) I'm still going to save my ...
  • Nice - this is in line with what i'm getting - excellent center sharpness for sure
  • I am definitely a Back Button person, but on this camera and even on my Ricoh GR where the button is actually in the right spot under my thumb it's just not comfortable - I think it's a ...
  • Added 20 photos to their gallery

  • Replied in Image quality?
    I've only taken a couple of shots so far - and i'm keeping an open mind due to looking at JPEG files (once ACR supports the camera i'll probably never shoot another jpeg with it) Initial findings ...
  • I picked the camera up yesterday - still haveing a play and haven't left the house with it yet - but i have set it up for how i'd like to shoot it (except for RAW at the moment since i can't use ...
  • Created discussion thread G1x mk3 hits Australia
    Ahhhh - the long wait for the battery to charge... Smaller than i'd expected - and yes, thats a 37mm filter and no, the peak wrist strap doesn't fit through the lug on the side of the body (so i've ...
  • Looking these shots i get the feeling things will look sharper once the camera is supported in ACR - my 5D3 almost went back to the shop because of JPEGS making me think everything was alittle ...
  • Great to hear - I remember almost returning my 5D3 i was that disappointed in the JPEGs coming out of it, i think it was a rather long wait for ACR to get a profile into lightroom, i also seem to ...
  • Any further thoughts or findings after two/three days or so?
  • I may be alone in this, and seem to be - but i really like my Nikon 1 cameras, the V3 and J5, the 6.7-13mm, 18.5mm and 32mm lenses are great and the kit zooms are ok too - the only reason i think ...
