Mike -'s recent activity

  • Too bad.  Sony shows about the best detail of all of'em, with the new D850 being close. I have Canon 6D and 5D IV, Nikon D810, Sony a6300 and a9 II. As I said, the Sony's (yes, even the little ...
  • no text Mike
  • Replied in Very excited
    I've got a Sony copy of the big Sigma. It's really not bad sharpness wise when set around F-8 aperture.  All zooms have a "happy spot" around F-8, +/- one step, for the best detail. I guess it ...
  • If Lou talked to them as he writes, maybe there's some unintentional hard feelings on 47th Street Photo's part..! Mike
  • Have you read over any of the reviews on this website, and others ? That's how I get information like you seek.  Pick something you "think" you like, and read the review(s).  Then move on to the ...
  • The 18-135mm and the 50mm for indoors and the big one for out of doors. Don't dismiss the 70-300 lens yet, the kids WILL get bigger and the "play" will move out doors, not so much indoors..!  Then ...
  • Nothing wrong with this kit - My current kit: Canon 80D 18-135mm IS USM Lens + 70-300mm IS USM II Lenses. Just learn what you have a little better.  Like...do you know that all zoom lenses have a ...
  • Why compare too lenses NOT in question..? Kinda silly, right..! But comparing the two in question...pretty close, DXO wise, (though they are on different cameras !) While the mount is different, ...
  • Two of my many cameras are...the Canon 6D and the Sony a6300. Both capture fine images, with good detail.  The a6300 maybe a little better detail with a good lens.  The Canon lineup of lenses suits ...
  • Paul - That's one thing I found in the videos and some of the reviews, that the 18-135 is sharp in "some" areas, but the 18-105 is sharper/as sharp in more of the zoom range areas. In my quick ...
  • I researched lenses for my a6300 for a while, and eliminated all but the 18-135 and the 18-105. After watching YouTube video after video, all the reading, I bought the 18-105 (only have the money ...
  • Marty - The second comment is a false statement. MOST APS-c cameras have internal mirrors. The a6xxx line (and others from Sony) do not have internal mirrors bouncing around creating vibration. And ...
  • Tim - I agree with Lensmate. Camera wise, it's there ready (or done?), to be fixed. another $75 for a big part while more than you wanted, should afford you a better camera in the long run. JUST ...
  • Created discussion thread Why is it that some people...
    I know I'll probably get a bunch of comments from the same folks that this question is about...but...! This question comes from years of reading this (fine by the way !) web site along with other ...
  • I don't know anything about the xt10... But the Sony a6000/a6300, is a MUCH better camera (picture detail wise) than the Nikon.  I know this because I have them both (a6300 - D5300). Whatever you ...
  • I'm down to one or two air shows a year now, but in the past it been four or five a year. Camera brand...most everything..!  From cell phones, Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony..! So why the question ?  ...
  • That's why I don't do what you do.  I'm proud of you, always follow the crowd, that way, you'll always be second best. I find things that are usable (in this case VERY usable) and use them ! Never ...
  • My a99 II "would be" my primary camera...BUT for the lens. My Canon 5D IV is my primary camera "because of" the lens.  If Sony (or someone) had one closer to Canon's 35-350 (ish) zoom with the ...
  • Replied in Adapt
    Learn...learn to adapt..! People whine about small cameras, like the Canon SL1 and II While I don't have huge hands, I wear a 3x motorcycle glove.  And yea, the human body has a remarkable ability ...
  • That article fails to mention people that HAVE to do things...VERY quickly. Various race vehicle drivers, like going 320+ mph in just a quarter of a mile. Or a few years back the guy who went ...
