Chris Mak's recent activity

  • 600mm f5.6 equivalent to the Canon DO and Nikon PF lenses with fast AF motor. Weight around 2.5 kg. Chris
  • Of course! In the spirit of this thread: "Pentax considerations", I would consider m4/3 and Sony FE/Loxia, systems that revolutionized travel photography, and leisurely photography in the broadest ...
  • I see, that is unfortunate. I prefer looking through an optical viewfinder myself greatly, but at least for manual focus, the EVF is a blessing with its easy and infallable 100%zoom. On the Pentax ...
  • Saying this as explicitly as you do, it is a given that you have never shot with a A7RII(III) + Zeiss Loxia combo. Say what you will, but anyone with a bit of a photographers heart will have to ...
  • The Sigma lenses for Sony FE are a bad example, they are indeed really only DSLR lenses with built-in adapter to get the right registration distance. Sigma stated a few years ago, when Sony was ...
  • A f1.2 prime lens on the current best m4/3 sensor, or even your 16mp Sony m4/3 sensor, should have to be enough for most situations. I remeber shooting f2.0 on the Olympus E3 in concert venues. Now ...
  • Very nice shots! I still get slightly nostalgic when I see an Olympus combo of this quality, having left Olympus when there was no E5 successor (being a birder also). I had lenses like the SHG ...
  • I get what you are saying, and have to agree to a large degree. Looking back through years of images, it is always the enjoyment in photography that sparks the imagination, and it really does not ...
  • Nice images Arijit! "Your" ringnecked parakeet presently also roames our large cities ;-) Chris
  • Looking at the real high end FF camera offerings by Sony, Nikon and Canon, the K1 is of course a budget option. And there is nothing wrong with that, or with budget cameras in general. But looking ...
  • I went FF with the 36mp standard cmos sensor Sony A7R, and later on upgraded tot the 42mp BSI sensor A7RII. A very significant sensor improvement i.m.o. so much so that a Sony 28mp BSI sensor ...
  • Perhaps, But I doubt there would be enough reason for existing users to upgrade. And Pentax may not bring many new people in with such a body either. The original K3 was a modest hit for what it ...
  • The situation with Pentax is very different from that at Nikon around the time of the D500 launch. Nikon was perhaps not so willing, but very, very able to bring out an APSC body that is at ...
  • Replied in K1, Photos 2
    Beautiful images, the 35mm sigma art shot is very nice! Chris
  • Love the Wooly necked stork, Arijit! Chris
  • Thanks, you are absolutely right. I was searching "wood pigeon' but it is the rock pigeon that appears the ancester of our city pigeons. Still never saw this color scheme before. It was in an area ...
  • Created discussion thread Just a "normal" pigeon?
    I spotted this pigeon a few weeks ago in very early morning light. It struck me that I had not seen a pigeon with these colors before. Does anyone know: is this just a normal woodpigeon? thx Chris
  • But surely it should work with the matching sigma 1.4TC? If not, use on a Sony body is seriously compromised. Chris
  • Always handheld. I do own a tripod, but it has been collecting dust as long as I remember.... The Sigma 500mm f4S is still the most likely candidate to replace my DA560mm. Having used the Sigma ...
  • Thanks for posting your impressions. I am looking for a next level prime lens and the Sigma 500mm f4S is the most likely option. I would seriously prefer it on a 42mp body though, instead of a ...
