Damoo's recent activity

  • For a number of years, I had only the 70-200mm f4L IS with the Zeiss 135mm f2. But, for travel & travel street photography, I have started carrying the 70-200mm f2.8L IS II with 2X Extender.
  • I. My question is which option should I go for, and based on your photography which option have you gone for and/or is your go to setup for events and general shooting? -> If I travel to places ...
  • Yesterday I tried to compare a 6D RAW vs 5D Mark IV RAW image in lightroom as to how much I can push the images. Needless to say that the 30MP images with a better DR provided a far more ...
  • Replied in Value?
    There is no better lens one could ever make that beats the Canon 70-200 mm 4L IS for an f4 lens in 70-200mm category. It is simply a waste of time to compare Tamron or think of other brands. The IS ...
  • Perhaps my copy was a great one. Nevertheless, there are not many lenses that beat the 70-200mm f4L IS in terms of IQ. Just an year ago, I bought the 70-200mm f2.8L IS II because I wanted f2.8. I ...
  • If its VC, then G2 ticks the box very well. Definitely a significant improvement over G1. Enjoy ur toy !!!
  • The G2 is leaps and bounds better than the G1 in VR. Tamron's efforts were focussed to keep it as the USP and its clearly visible. I tried G2 hands on and despite the awkward zoom ring working in ...
  • Well put Aftab. I was thinking of adding a Sony A7R II and use it along with my canon lenses. Nikon D750 almost made me jump ships. But I had a good look at my canon lenses and with the new 35mm ...
  • If you have the 35mm f1.4L II, there is no need or little need for 85mm f1.4 or the 100mm L for travel. I own all the three - 35mm f1.4L II, 85mm f1.2L II & 100mm L f2.8 IS. I will either take the ...
  • The AF on the sigma 24mm f1.4 was better than the 35mm f1.4. I must call the 35mm f1.4 sigma art a disaster in AF just that many people don't admit it so openly. The sigma 24mm f1.4 L has ...
  • Replied in 35mm L II f1.4
    This is an astonishingly great lens. With the 5D IV, it is superb. Yes, there is vignetting and AF is not blazingly fast but IQ is amazing. I am okay to stay on Canon side to forego some DR on the ...
  • I do own the Leica system my dear friend. I use a Typ 246 with 50summilux and 35summicron.
    I do not own the TL system but being a Leica customer, I do get invites from the shop when new products...

  • I believed that I shall carry the best lenses I have. So, for portraits, I carry the 85mm f1.2L II during my travel. It has been serving me well. Until recently I felt the need for a 35mm f1.4 or ...
  • Well, M43 is when I can travel in a budget airline, where 7kg is the maximum luggage (check in luggage needs to be purchased), or shoot for 3-4 hours by grabbing some time during business travels...

  • Leica TL Summilux 35/1.4 is generally priced around $2300-2400. Not >$3500. The optics are better in the Leica with aspherical elements reducing CA, better clarity & sharpness. So, let's leave the...

  • I bow with respect Dan.You put it so right. Zeiss news release on 25mm f1.4 explicitly states 'Even at full aperture, there are hardly any color fringes. The finest details can be reproduced in ...
  • Must say, when I pick this lens to shoot, I feel happy to be on Canon side. An extraordinary lens. Absolute gem. I would say without a doubt, it even beats Leica 35lux.
  • How many would want to get one? Just purchased a 35mm f1.4L II. Perhaps couple of years down the line, I can fancy buying one. From the specs, sample photos, it is quite appealing.
  • Replied in MF
    The entire Leica M world relies on manual focus. I am a Leica user and 3 of my lenses - 21mm, 35mm and 50mm are manual focus. Further, I do use Zeiss 135mm f2 APO. Fantastic and buttery smooth ...
  • 1. Just to let you know, if you look at the MFT charts and practically try, the 16-35mm f4L IS is amazingly sharp at f5.6 to f8.0. Unless you really need DoF, you can try to shoot at f5.6/f8.0. 2. ...
