  • That is quite amusing. Those Minolta SR-Ts were gems especially the 50/1.4 Rokkor which I am fortunate to own one in "as new" condition
  • Just joined the forum: "Sea Caves I" in Ayia Napa, Cyprus using DJI Mavic Air
  • I think I may have confused you. I have NO intention of going back into wedding photography. Yes, I'm shooting 3 weddings (Covid allowing) in 2021 for friends. One in London (where I'll rent R5/6 ...
  • Indeed MAC - no more weddings. I'm shooting 3 weddings in 2021 for 3 good friends (all location weddings). For one of these (in London) I'll be hiring R5/R6 with RF glass. For the others I might ...

    I'm very excited about that combo - trouble is how to sneak €1700+ out of the family account without the wife noticing... I better start selling gear starting from the seldom used 22/2

    I was just using from the collection of lenses I own - I would not dream of shooting a wedding with that lens. The one you suggest or the very capable Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 would be better options ...

    Wow sounds quite a bike. The M6II will not be going mountain-biking. The M50 (which I am definitely keeping) will continue to be my go-to camera for the shoulder rig. Will do for sure. My aim is to ...

    I still have my Black Rapid Double strap from my wedding photography days, so: M50+15-45 (or 18-150) +Canon 570EXII flash on one side M6II + EVF + 56/1.4 on the other side ... and I'm back shooting ...

    Thanks I am not looking to buy the 32/1.4 at this point. My lens tally at the moment is: Canon 15-45 Canon 55-200 Canon 22/2 Sigma 56/1.4 I am not using the 22 much so I might be looking to sell ...
  • OMG you brought back so many memories - Greek weddings last ALL DAY (10am for bride prep until 4AM last man standing! - none of this "I'll shoot until the first dance" here otherwise you will get ...

    Hi. I have found one company that does the M6ii plus EVF for €999 which sounds reasonable although for an extra €99 I get the kit lens as well - who is the company doing the 1098 deal? The Athens ...

    "Hideous but necessary EVF" - I totally agree Any deals available in Europe - I cannot find anyone selling this combo (body plus the EVF) in Europe for a reasonable price?
  • Nothing wrong with the Zenit, John. Lots of my friends had them when we were teenagers - Zenit E,  I seem to remember with Helios lens? Is that right Alastair? I started in 1970 with a Canonet QL17 ...
  • You make a very good point. No, I'm not desperate for a top-quality 24-105 as I'm not shooting weddings any more (just the occasional in which case I'll rent), so that should not be the defining ...
  • Replied in Sigh..
    I have a E-TTL passthrough cable (for shooting using umbrellas etc) but I honestly don't think that the EVF will work on top of the hot-shoe passthrough ( I seem to recall someone explaining why ...
  • M50 offers higher fps and some reviews claim more accurate focusing .. My "former 24-105" was the very capable Sigma 24-105 f/4 OS Art but "camerasize" didn't have a picture of it... so I used the ...
  • Replied in Sigh..
    I take it you don't do any flash photography and/or video work with external microphones?
  • Go on I'm listening AND interested The rig on the left is your suggestion, the rig on the right is what I sold and the middle is a "typical" EF-M configuration (here shown with M50 and EF-M ...
  • I may take you up on that although using flash will be an issue and secondly I doubt I'll find a shop here in Cyprus that will have the EVF in stock to try out. Sound advice
  • They most certainly did - we waited months for a firmware upgrade. What a joke
