  • Created question thread 15-85 problems
    I have an M3 and a SL-1 and rented a 15-85 to try on both cameras but ultimately didn't have a chance to try it on the SL-1. So this image is on the M3 with the canon adapter. The lens has been ...
  • Created photo thread help with 15-85 lens
    I have an M3 and a SL-1 and rented a 15-85 to try on both cameras but ultimately didn't have a chance to try it on the SL-1.  So this image is on the M3 with the canon adapter.  The lens has been ...
  • Thanks for the info and the picture.
  • Created question thread M5 histogram question.
    I have the M3 with 11-22, 22, and 18-55.  So I'm aware of most of its advantages and disadvantages.  It seems that the M5 addresses most of the problem areas. Could anyone that now actually has an ...
  • Thanks for the help.  I did what both of you suggested and it works.  However, since I don't use bbf all the time, I programmed it to C1 on the mode dial.  Of course I have to move the dial back ...
  • I was afraid that I wasn't clear....  I'm try again.  Shooting in af-s, the way I have it set up is so that when I press the ael button, it will autofocus on whatever I have the spot pointed to. ...
  • Created question thread yes, another a6300 BBF question
    I have my a6300 set up for back button focus with the with the lever set to AEL and then simply pushing and holding the associated button.  I might be more dense than usual, but is there any way ...
  • I forgot to add that one of the features that I really like on the M3 and M5 is the ability to use the 4x3 aspect ratio.  I used a 4x5 and 645 film formats a great deal and appreciate that Canon ...
  • I started with Sony with the nex 7 and loved the tri-nav system.  I now have the a6300 and use the nex 7 as a backup.  Personally, I wish that Sony had used two control dials on the top plate.  I ...
  • I don't think I would list IS as a positive since it is only for video and is just digital as well. Certainly looks as though the M5 is ergonomically solid.  I'm hoping the splat button location is ...
  • I used cornerfix with the 15mm Voigtlander on my older nex 7 and it worked fine.  Interestingly, I did not need cornerfix on my a6300. However, with my M3, cornerfix did not work as well.  I played ...
  • I thought they used the same sensor.  No?  Others have indicated that there is really no IQ difference between the GX8 and Pen-F.  Could you elaborate on the differences please?
  • My biggest concern would be vignetting.  I have a Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 that I tried on my Canon M3 and the vignetting made it absolutely unusable.  I realize that doesn't mean Leica lenses won't ...
  • Well, I only have a sample of one.  I bought a nex 7 with the 18-55 when it first came out.  My lens echoes most of the online reviews.  It's sharp in the center but degrades rather quickly as you ...
  • You might want to look at Photozone as they have reviewed both lenses.  If you look at the tested resolution figures, the 12-60 is better than the 12-32 at 5.6 and 8.0, which are the apertures I'm ...
  • The metabones T adapter works very well with my a6300 and 2 canon ef-s lenses that I own.  Both are for the sl-1.  They are the 18-55 stm and the 24 efs.  They focus very fast and accurately.  I ...
  • I have the a6300 which by all indications should focus better than the a6000 with the Fotodiox.  I bought the Fotodiox and the first day it worked intermittently than totally quit. I thought I ...
  • thank you, Brian!   I am using 3.1.1 and have set "camera default" as you suggested.  Also, the files are the original raw files from the cameras.  The files from the xe1 and the nex 7 are still ...
  • I might add that if I open the Fuji and Sony raw files in Camera Raw, they look fine, not dark at all.
  • Created question thread iridient question
    I've started using Iridient lately and have found something I don't understand.  I've been going back through some older images from Olympus em5, Fuji xe1, and Sony Nex 7.  All the images from the ...
