  • Of course, the speed booster is part of the optical system and as such, it participates in the system's properties. Being a focal length reducer, it reduces the focal length of a lens. However, it ...
  • Thank you - found and done, mystery resolved. So it was a RTFM case. I thought the setting you mentioned was for continuous AF when shooting, but in Canonese continous af mode for shooting is ...
  • I am fairly new to the Eos M5, but I have a number of old(er)  EF lenses I also use adapted on my Sony A7Rii. It seems that the M5 always prefocuses, other than the A7 (there it is a menu item). Wh ...
  • On several occasions in this thread I've come across the conception that a speed booster would reduce the focal length of a full frame lens. However, the booster just offsets the crop factor ...
  • Agree. I just checked my Lightroom catalog and I am at attempt nr. 29633. That is since I started using Lightroom, some ten years ago. None of the 11633 slides and negatives from my analog days ...
  • Adapting a Nikon Kiron mount 105mm 2.8 to a Fuji X-mount camera like X-T4 shouldn't be a problem. I use mine on my X-T2 as well as on my Sony's with the appropriate adapters, and without a problem. ...
  • Take the A7rii with kit lens and a nice old 85 to 100 mm manual focus lens that will cost you litle and  learn to shoot with and without autofocus Discover what you really want and need, and ...

    In DMF rotating the focus ring automatically engages 6x magnification and focus peaking - if set to on. Center button press gives you 12x magnification - all the time holding your AF-on button. Alt ...

    As does my newly arrived A6500. But I'm not ready yet to swap my A7Rii for a iii with some additional bells and whistles. Good to keep in mind, however
  • Replied in Update us!
    Great, thanks! Indeed on DMF I get automatic 6x magnification when I keep AF button pressed and activate focus ring, and 12 x magnification when I press the center button. Hadn't found that one ...

    I wrote a detailed descrition (quoting your latest post) 2 h ago:-O. Are you in threaded or in flat view? Or need any more info?
  • Replied in Update us!
    Ouch! I'll try. The simplest way is using "DMF" as autofocus mode, If you haven't changed anything on the set-up, keeping the shutter half-pressed and rotoating the focus ring will give you a ...
  • Replied in Update us!
    I found out that the trick is in 3 functions: AF On, Focus Settings and AF/MF Toggle. I have AF on on C2, Focus Settings on C1 and AF/MF Toggle on AF/MF, but any 3 buttons would do. In AF-S or AF-A ...
  • Replied in A7RII?
    Of course the menus are a disaster, without any logic behind it. But once the camera is set up, you hardly need them. I have AF/MF set to Control toggle, C1 to Focus Control and C2 to AF on. AF ...
  • Replied in A7RII?
    One of the reasons why I love my a7rii's af is the option to switch directly from af to mf. Just one button and I can check my focus at 12x magnifucation and correct it manually. Works great if ...
  • In the early 90's I was so happy with my F801 with autofocus, because my eyes are not that great. But autofocus technogy grew into something you need a MSc degree for to use it, and I was so happy ...
  • On my A7Rii I have several mf-sets. Nikon-mount: Mir 24H-2.0 35, Nikon E 50-1.8, Helios 50-2.0, Nikon E 100-2.8, Kiron 105-2.8 macro, Vivitar S1 200-3.5 Canon FD: Sigma superwide 24-2.8, 28-2.8, my ...
  • How about trying some old CCCP lenses? I enjoy my Mir 24H (35mm 2.0 Nikon mount) and Helios 81 (53 mm 2.0. Nikon mount) quite a bit. Still looking for a Kaleinar 5 (100mm 2.8) though. bobcom
  • I Have a Fringer Ef -Fx adapter to use some Canon lenses on my Fuji X-T2. Looking for an affordable superzoom, I find the Sigma 18-200 os hsm ll one of the better and smaller alternatives. Does ...
  • So you are up to another bankruptcy exercise? A7iii with the two Tamrons is a great combo, but when looking for tele you are in for a disappointment. I have an A7(Rii), but use it mainly with ...
