  • Replied in Excellent!
    Although I do not own either the K-1 or the DA*60-250mm, any additions to LensFun are always great to see. Have you submitted them to GitHub/SourceForge? I use LensFun extensively though DigiKam, ...
  • I totally agree. I've been trying to convince myself of reasons to get a K-3 II but because of the K-5 iis's performance there simply is no business case I can make (that the missus would agree to ...
  • absolutely not! The high-ISO shots I have seen from the K-1 are much better than I can achieve with my K-5 IIs (which is no slouch either). It is just one of the many considerations to take into ...
  • Replied in Hama
    Hama is relatively low-end, sold at store such as MediaMarkt and the likes. Some minimal degradation may be unavoidable but a good CPL should never tip your shots over into the "unusable" category. ...
  • but not on the link you posted, turns out a bit cheaper. Thanks for writing up your experience.
  • In the country I live in one reaches the international border in approximately 2.5 hours drive  so the lens should do fine. If you are located in a large country (I assumed you were in the US) I ...
  • The US never had democracy to begin with. The presidency is bought by the one with the biggest mouth and the biggest purse. The 2-party system is almost as bad as the one-party "people's ...
  • Replied in Since when
    is it something specific to the USA? Europe already changed 2 weeks ago. I've never ever understood why people are so opposed to DST, it seems to work just fine and has done so for a long, long time.
  • 3rd-Party lenses are merely lenses manufactured by someone other than the camera manufacturer. You buy such lenses new in any (web)store and you can read up on how they rank by looking at lens ...
  • I use a Linux laptop for ease of use, access to cutting-edge versions of free software, low cost, better operation speed on relatively limited hardware and internet security. I think both are very ...
  • and I cannot find anything overly complicated with it. Every decent website nowadays has a few layers of extra verification with a few additional steps to follow. Pretty darn standard if you ask me.
  • Replied in Bedankt!
    Ga daar toch eens kijken, niet zo ver uit de buurt.
  • If it is just the camera and you just sling it over your shoulder and might get away with it but any goods purchase outside the EU over the €430 are subject to import duty and VAT when you arrive ...
  • Looks great!
  • I've now got both the Porst as well as the Revuenon - quite different beasts really. The Revuenon beats the Porst on ease of use primarily due to its conductive mount which shorts out a few pins ...
  • Created discussion thread Revuenon 55mm/f1.2
    I already shared a few shots with its Porst cousin some time ago but now that this little gem has arrived, I can share some of its output:
  • which you didn't read? The replies are all here, take your pick.
