  • All depends on your situation but for me the experience comes first and photos and video second.   The FZ1000 is an awesome camera even in low light and is my go-to travel unit.
  • Let's keep the conversation here open but on topic.   No political comments or inferences from any perspective.    Posts that cross the line even a bit will be deleted.   This is a Retouching ...
  • Replied in My thoughts
    Get the adapter.  EF lenses if you have them will work great with the camera and actually you will enjoy them more on a mirrorless system. I have a slew of lenses but it all depends on what you're ...
  • It's still listed on the Samyang US Site. $699. Adorama has it for that price, which is what I paid for it and NOW they include the lens station so you can update the firmware. I bought mine back ...
  • Another reminder and for those that have been flagged warned and received PM's around inappropriate behaviors here, there will be no more.  Break the rules again and you will be bannned. We're ...
  • I agree. The 84mm f/1.4 is a GREAT value and offers terrific performance. I have the Samyang version and docking station so that I was able to update the firmware thus enabling Canon's IBIS in my ...
  • I made the move and am blown away by the capabilities of this camera.   The MKII focused very well for me but the eye focus and accuracy of the R6 IMO are light years ahead.   I love the focusing ...
  • Created discussion thread REMINDER for ALL Retouching Members
    The last nearly two years have been tough on all of us. Let's please make sure, however, we move forward here at DPR in ALL groups not just here in Retouching that we do so in a positive, ...
  • I've really enjoyed it over the past several weeks.  I use it with the R6 and the thus the latest firmware not only has focus on-point nearly 100% of the time just like with my Native Canon Lenses ...
  • ^^ this.   Keep in mind you don't need the latest and greatest in lenses to make for a spectacular camera system. I have several Canon L Series 1 lenses from the early part of the 2000's and they ...
  • Replied in 90mm Tamron
    ^^ Time flies by for sure.  Pun intended as it relates to that last pic   :)          Good to see your name again.  I recognize your name as I too go way back in terms of years here at DPR.  My ...
  • with Samyang it's about the firmware.  Again, I just upgraded the 85mm f/1.4 and IBIS works great.    Very cool on so many levels but having a lens like this and even my Gen 1  EF-24-70L f/2.8 ...
  • In short, yes, older EF lenses IS work well with the R6.   Th point of the video however is to show not only that but also the performance of the EF Lenses with the adapter overall.  In short ...
  • Third party wise, It does depend on the specific lens. I have 3 third party lenses. The first is a Samyang 85mm f/1.4. Natively it does NOT have stabilization but with the most recent v3 firmware, ...

  • As already noted, the above has been too processed for anyone to make a reply on the lens itself. The image here probably says more about the camera than the glass. That said, I've considered the ...
  • Replied in Pretty Good
    I tested mine the other day but the one that I put controlling our internet and security system.   Let's face it, with Covid, etc. the kids and everyone working here, when the power goes down I ...
  • I would imagine on most really good primes that would be the case.   Overall from a design stand point lenses here are just like glasses and contacts/lenses for the human eye.   The closer they ...
  • Agree.   The extra bit of heft and size on EF Lenses doesn't bother me.   Optically speaking the newer lenses are indeed better but even still, are they worth buying them all over again for slight ...
  • Replied in 90mm Tamron
    I have a Tamron lens, the SP 90MM F2.8 Di VC USD 1:1 Macro that is several years old but has been absolutely amazing for me. https://www.dpreview.com/products/tamron/lenses/tamron_90_2p8_vc Built ...
