  • The OP has bought a true macro lens , that will give much better results than a close up dioptre on a zoom lens . And still better than on a good prime lens . If the one he has is a screw drive ...
  • But what you wrote was ; Which is not quite correct . Adapted lenses off DSLRs mounted on cameras with a decent grip and a central EVF , (not left hand sided like a rangefinder ) handle just the same .
  • I put my 16-50mm on one of my old 7000AF's to see what happens . Initially on putting fresh batteries in it does it's usual where it puts the odd numbers up until you set the ISO ( as it didn't ...
  • Depends on what camera and lens combination your talking about . I've an a7Riv and grip , with a Minolta 300mm f/4 lens on it the handlings exact the same as when the lens is mounted on a DSLR or SLR .
  • Replied in Sony A77ii
    Think of how big a snowman you could build in three months , that should see out global warming and be there for centuries to come ! And don't forget all those grilled penguin sandwiches . ;)
  • You can't go wrong with it , especially paired with one of the smaller bodies . Definitely recommend .
  • I forgot to add . Go for the full frame lens as you can also use it on the apsc camera as well , giving you two fields of view . Two for the price if one if you like . The 12mm is only suitable for ...
  • That's cleared it up . If you click on the "forum" tab at the top of the page , then "all forums " all the forums come up on the screen . The E mount lens forum is immediately below the A mount ...
  • Depends what angle of view your talking about . Do you want an 18mm lens for full frame or 18mm for apsc ? If the field of view on full frame lens is 18mm is required then the apsc lens would need ...
  • Nikon users always show great pride in Nikon for how compatible their lenses are aver many decades . Yet the earlier non AIS lenses don't fit on most bodies , film or digital , you can't alter the ...
  • But did you clean the contact point in the camera first as well as the battery holder ? You still haven't said yes or no . If that's dirty , you won't get any power from the battery into the camera . ...
  • The SSM lenses just have a built in drive to focus the lens , non SSM or SAM lens have a mechanical connection from the camera body to drive the gears . All use the same aperture control .
  • Yes , but did you put new ones in this camera ? I don't meant out of a pack of four , you put two in this and two in another , as if one of those four were faulty , that could be the problem . It ...
  • Try breathing on the lens immediately before taking the shot ( you'll probably need to focus first and set to manual focus ) , the condensation will soften the image slightly , but the bright ...
  • O.k . Two things . Back to the first question first . Did you put fresh batteries in it ? Second thing , going off memory , as I'm not at home to check mine because I'm on holiday. Unlike almost ...
  • As pointed out in my previous post , you were looking at a generic picture of the lens , probably Nikon F or Pentax K mount , not the lens you were buying . Nothing weird , you just need to look at ...
  • No fancy electromagnet's in the lens or anything else fancy like like that . So when off the camera the spring loaded aperture is fully closed . If you have any A mount gear , try taking a lens off ...
  • Have you put fresh batteries in ? It's usually an indication that the batteries are low , so you can see in the viewfinder they need replacing . The next thing that happens is the shutter doesn't ...
  • There certainly is . So have you worked it out yet ? ;)
