  • Let's get this out of the way - at the moment there are no alternatives to the Nikon 14-30. Not on the Nikon, Sony, Canon, or any other mount. There is simply no other lens that combines the ...
  • Jared Polin manages to combine the technical competence of Ken Rockwell with the on screen presence of Adam Sandler. Whenever one of his videos pops up on my YouTube feed I take the opportunity to ...
  • Wow, $150 for a "dumb" adapter? Can't imagine what the AF one will cost some day. The dumb equivalents to FTZ are less than $15 on eBay and supposedly quite good.
  • Yeah, FSS on the Z bodies israther poorly implemented. I set the step size of mine to 10 and it still takes well over 10 shots to cover the range from nearest focus to infinity. To me that is ...
  • I hope that you are right. But chances are that the 14-24 will be priced into the upper 2000s, possibly even low 3000s, which will put it out of reach for me for 3-5 years until prices come down ...
  • All the images posted here by the OP are wide open at 14mm. Your image is 15mm f/8. There is quite a bit of apples vs oranges going on over here. The few times people have done head to head ...
  • Replied in RE:
    Corner to corner sharpness of this lens is great even after corrections. More or less on par with anything out there that is even remotely in the same price class. Anyone who uses the extreme ...
  • Huh? Are you implying that putting a 14-30 on a body it was designed for is equivalent to putting a 35mm lens on a MF body?
  • Testing a lens without corrections is like looking at a girl without makeup or a pushup bra. You get the unadulterated truth, not some fantasy. You can then choose what fantasy to apply yourself. T ...
  • The rationalization of the mediocrity of this lens in the vignetting and distortion categories is getting comical. Just a month ago lenses with a 1. 5 eV vignetting wide open were decried as ...
  • There is a simple solution for that - a bit of lead pencil on the threads of the adapter rings and the lens.  Never had a seizure.
  • Replied in Vignetting
    ALL early access reviewers sold their soul to Nikon and presented glowing reviews of a lens rife with strange compromises.  Gross vignetting and gross distortion patched up by software.  Did ...
  • That is going to be a long wait :-)
  • BT are superb in quality, but you pay dearly for the privilege. A Haida polarizer will get you ***at least*** 90% there at less than 50% of the price.  Choose your poison. Before you buy a 72mm ...
  • After traveling with the Z6 + 24-70 and now shooting for a couple of days with the 14-30 I can say that I wish they had sacrificed some size and weight and not be as heavy handed with the ...
  • Let me make sure I have this right - you are running a Rokinon EF mount with an EF to Z adapter and you are getting metering, IBIS and EVF all working? Metering works as in you set the body to A ...
