  • Replied in around 150...
    Hello! In working order and about as many in parts/defunct etc. Only counted the working ones for the poll. Best, Alex
  • Replied in Instgram
    Hello! You miss the point - known to the very platform in question is what matters. "Influencers", "content creators" etc all build their own fame and can make a living that way. On a personal note ...
  • Hello! ... and giving it the look it commands: old SD10 snap Best, Alex
  • Created discussion thread May the Force... Sigma Edition
    Hello! ... Wishing all of you a new year as free of worries and problems as possible! And to go with the catchphrase, a GIF attempt on my smartphone with the SD14 and 15/2.8 fisheye (single frame, ...
  • Replied in yes and no
    Hello! Since I do own MFT cameras with the respective functionality as well I do see more of a problem in the capture process and not at all when it comes to processing. You can create all kinds of ...
  • Hello! To me this was a major annoyance as well - with the 600/4.0 in my case especially (it did not bother me as much with the few shorter VR lenses I own). I have to say that I seem to notice it ...
  • Hello! It seems to be normal, since I get the same behaviour on my MKI bodies with VR lenses that are adapted via the FTZ. Best, Alex
  • Created discussion thread May the force...
    Hello! ... you know the rest... ;) Just checking by to wish all of you a new year free of worries and with good light. And in order to go with the N1 theme and the catch-phrase in the title, here ...
  • Hello! It is only now that I realized a difference in my 1 series cameras being able to operate with modern Sigma Art lenses adapted via the FT1. Many of my Art lenses (like the 14/1.8 or the ...
  • Hello! Thanks for the update - even though it is a very sad one! Been wondering where he went after my seven year hiatus here too. Best, Alex
  • Hello! Let's see what Nikon Austria will charge - I'll post an update as soon as I get a quote. Btw, it may be worthwhile to create a database of serial numbers for affected lenses. Maybe there is ...
  • Hello! One of my 32mm lenses has just developed the stuck aperture / broken aperture failure. It will not open wider than f/2.0 and close  down beyond f/8.0. I bought it new in late 2013/early 2014 ...
  • Hello! Gave your RAW a go in a Smartphone App (Snapseed) with pseudo-HDR: Out of interest - what was the colour really like on that day? I guess this here is too cool? Best, Alex
  • Hello! Thank you very much for the large samples! That really helps evaluating this lens' performance! Best, Alex
  • Hello! Having large hands as well, I do find the Z6 way more comfortable than my Z50. It is not painful for me to use it, but trying to reach the (standard) ISO button also puts strain on my index ...
  • Hello! Lovely images, but the sizes posted make it impossible to judge anything but the keen eye of the photographer. Could you perhaps post a full size image or a few substantial 100% crops please? ...
  • Hello! They were FD and Nikon G to MFT, dumb adapters, both bought through and shipped by Amazon (no marketplace or third party seller as far as I can tell). Would not have doubted them to be ...
  • Hi Dan! On or off camera does not make a difference with my lenses. Best, Alex
  • Hello! My Z primes are also sort of off when stopped down - in practical use I have found that to be a non-issue for me though and can say that they mostly give smoother bokeh than most other ...
  • Hello! Re Metabones non-Speedboosters - I have to say that I was extremely disappointed with the two non-Speedboosters I bought after owning (now) a total of eight Speedboosters and loving those. ...
