  • I am also an architectural photographer and I use a Canon TS-E 17mm lens on an A7RII body with no issues. It doesn't lose any more IQ at full shift than it does on my EOS 5DIII. I imagine the Laowa...

  • Ah, o.k. I remember now, it is a different process to the lenses, the firmware is downloaded through the optimisation pro app. Keeping up with firmware is a full time job these days.

  • What am I missing here? I can't find a download link on the MC-11 firmware page. I have for past downloads and can see it on all of the lens pages. It has been a long week, maybe I am losing it....

  • I think there are workarounds. It's a good thing it has that 1/32,000 second shutter. That and ND filters would cover for a lot of the times when you would normally go below 640 ISO on other...

  • Weird conversation about the comparison with the human eye. I didn't think it was possible to study the bokeh of the human eye. Maybe it's just me, but as soon as I try to look at things that are...

  • I am pretty sure that when Sony start to produce long prime lenses they will take the weight of their bodies into account with the position of the control rings and tripod foot. In a way it will be...

  • Hey kpaddler "Buy a used Sachtler at half this price".

    If that was possible I would. The cheapest Sachtler I can find is twice this price. Which one are you thinking of?

  • I'm in Australia. Sony Support for A series cameras isn't even close to Canon or Nikon. It's not a global thing.

  • The camera looks really good. The A7 RII is good for what I do too, I bought one. I have been shooting with Canon for many years. I am a CPS member and get great service, and quickly, on the rare...

  • I really like the background blur in these shots. I ended up selling my Canon EF 135mm f/2 ages ago, because the blur was so messy, and haven't had a prime in this focal length since. The Canon was...

  • I'm very pleased to hear that you woke up. Not everyone commenting on this article seems to have achieved that. Still, it is good to see that this fresh approach to seeing things has inspired some...

  • Nicely executed and beautiful compositions, as well as very smart. Love the silhouette of the girl's head lined up with the sun to make a halo in the last one.

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    Yes, I agree that link is pretty obscure. I was also referring to the point and shoot part of the business, which is a big part of sales. Many of those cameras have been re-branded Lumix models. I...

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    " . . . . but when has purchasing a Leica ever been a strictly rational decision?"

    It definitely was from the first prototype, in the early 1900s and through WWII. Along with the Contax it was the...

  • Commented on a photo in the Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art sample gallery sample gallery

    This image shows what struck me with the first images I took with this lens. The colour fringing is really quite pronounced, yet reviews, like the DxO one (that places this lens at the top of the...
