  • Thanks Paul - that is what I feared. Frankly it would make more sense at that price to buy a used Canon EF wide angle lens or a Samyang manual RF mount lens. I'm not going to be able to do it on ...
  • Not sure how many adapters before IQ deteriorates but it looks like I could get this and then mount to my Canon EF to RF mount adapter? I wonder about infinity focus as I want it for Milky Way. htt ...
  • I have four Nikon lenses , none with a manual aperture ring. I have just bought a manual adapter to use with the Canon RF mount. I was expecting to have manual control of exposure via shutter ...
  • Ah, thanks, I didn't know that.
  • Thanks for clarifying.
  • Is that IBIS, lens or both? I am experimenting still with the R7 and 100-400mm RF. At what shutter speed would you consider turning it on again. (Sometimes we are often forced to lower than ideal ...
  • Thanks for the replies. So far I have been quite happy with my Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 for the Milky Way with my D500. So I have sent off for a Nikon F to RF adapter for that to see how that works. If ...
  • Given the original requirements mentioned in your first post I think you made the right choice given the difficulties and limitations of all options.
  • Created discussion thread Lens to use on R7 for Milky Way
    ...... and some landscape in general. Just got an R7 and don't have a wide angle lens. Don't want to spend vast amounts as will only get limited use. SO I am wondering what will be best. A used ...
  • Alistair - big thank you. I discovered I had somehow set bbf to eye detect which would presumably be responsible for almost all of the above problems and some others as well. It seems ok now with ...
  • Thanks Alistair. I have a feeling you are right. Having tweaked many settings and customised buttons I may have something in there that I'm not fully aware of its function. Whilst I am an ...
  • Sorry to be off topic a bit but there are a mounting number of R7 AF issues threads. I'm still experimenting but there are a lot of variables that I can't get my head round. LIke today, to pass ...
  • That last shot would be simplicity itself to a bog standard DSLR surely with single spot focus? Is it getting over complicated?  Can you disable most of the fancy AI stuff? https://www.flickr.com/p ...
  • Replied in R7 BIF help
    Yes, despite using the settings from the two sites recommended above I am finding it still a bit hit and miss. Also  including with owls flying in front of reeds (but a long way in front). I think ...
  • Hmm. I've been using electronic shutter in servo mode , H burst (not H+) and have found that in a group of several images at high shutter speeds over 1/500 sec on relatively static subjects some ...
  • The Nikon - F mount is the name of Nikon's long standing standard mount still going and can be AF or manual. A bit like Pentax K-mount which has also not changed. I've not chosen Nikon Z because I ...
  • Perhaps they prefer Canon mirrorless to Nikon but don't have an unlimited budget to rebuy their excellent Nikon lenses in expensive Canon RF mount?  In some uses, like astro for example, manual ...
  • Thank you. That is very informative and I hadn't thought of adapting the Nikon lens. I can still use that on y D500 when at home but was more thinking of when travelling because of lightness. ...
  • Created discussion thread Lens for R7 for wide angle astro
    So I'm new to Canon, new to the R7 and new to mirrorless so not picked up all the nuances yet. I am am reasonably happy with my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II - on my Nikon D500 for the Milky ...
