  • You shot those at f/8; the test would be more sensitive if the lens was wide open. It looks to me like the right side is out of focus. But that could be from the camera not being square to the ...
  • Replied in Does that work?
    I'd guess that if you're set to manual focus, then accidentally touching the focus ring moves the focus. The only way to get out of that is to go to autofocus (maybe) but then the lens will try to ...
  • Replied in 43mm on APS-C
    That is a weird focal length. It's exactly the diagonal of a 35mm frame but out in limbo (for me) on a crop sensor camera. What do you use it for?
  • Even the steering? That could get exciting.
  • How much are you willing to pay for the best lens? They get pretty expensive. What do you want to photograph?  How big are they? Do they bite or sting? All those questions affect any recommendation ...
  • Well, this is Nikon. If you put an old Nikkor on a D3200, the camera won't meter with it and you have to set exposure with an external meter or by guessing. On higher-end Nikons, you can indeed ...
  • What I do is take a picture or 2 with my phone in the same area that I'm using the camera. Then I add the location to the camera's photos after I get home. But it sounds like you'll be unable to ...
  • I have a zoom and I'm happy. I'm happy because I don't have to use it.
  • An odd restriction. But perhaps of use. I sometimes do this as a composition exercise in my neighborhood but I wouldn't consider it on a special trip. I see that you don't actually have the focal ...
  • Because wine comes in 1.5 liter bottles and they didn't want children to get confused.
  • Replied in Interesting
    Do you find that to be a useful focal length for 6X7? I think 77mm is well into limbo for both APS-C and full-frame 35mm. But at least they're consistent.
  • I have both the 50mm and 85mm f/1.8G lenses and I also prefer the out-of-focus rendering of the 85mm; the 50mm is sort of harsh.
  • That's a great lens and you'll be able to focus it quite well using the EM's split image screen. It may not be that easy to manually focus on your D7100 because it doesn't have a good focusing screen.
  • That seems like a good analogy. As it happens, I like both computer music and playing in a band. But I see them as quite divergent activities. So I might like having the camera do heavy lifting on ...
  • I don't have a 50mm f/1.2 but I do have some other AI-S lenses and they don't have that prong. I'm pretty sure the lens will work perfectly without it and can't really figure out its function.
  • I have a Sony RX100M3 for travel (they're up to M6 now). It's very compact and better than my phone (iPhone 6) primarily because it can zoom; the phone has fixed wide angle coverage. The Sony also ...
  • I often re-edit images that I like. I take a snapshot in Lightroom so my existing edit is saved, then I go at it again. Sometimes, it's better, sometimes it's worse, sometimes it's the same, ...
  • Most interior lights do not have the same color temperature as flash, which is pretty close to daylight. If you're using direct flash as the primary light source, then that's what white balance you ...
  • This novice would be disappointed if the adapter did not work with AF-C.
  • Replied in Pretty sure
    The trick is, you have a lens in the way. A lens is a device that transforms angular deviation into lateral deviation. Here is a sketch: The red rays entering from the left parallel to the optical ...
