Matsu's recent activity

  • Actually Sony’s own original statements about the E mount described the mount as optimized around an APSC sensor. They’re now trying to ret-con their own marketing by saying it was conceived for...

  • Nothing about the company’s recent products or marketing suggested anything other than snake oil.

  • Some of the usual Godox sources are indicating that an AD200*Pro* is immanent. Ad 200 with AD400Pro color stability? Could be useful...

  • Might end up being Z-mount camera’s... I’m genuinely impressed by how well the FTZ appears to work. I had another play with it yesterday. You basically have native functionality in many respects - ...
  • Replied in Canon 15-35
    appears to be the better concept. Canon's 15-35 appears no larger, takes an 82mm filter, and reaches a crucially useful 35mm at the long end.  This is not to be underestimated because for shooters ...
  • There's not much use for the shorter flange in typical 70-200 lenses, rear most lens is well clear of the throat already. If they change anything it might be to try to speed up AF from generation ...
  • Don’t be surprised if the 70-200Z is essentially a warmed over 70-200FL - different housing, an extr control ring, same or very similar optical formula, and a little bit of mount conversion welded ...
  • Replied in enjoy
    I’ve owned all three, VR, VR2, FL, and thought they are all great. The focus breathing really isn’t a deal breaker even though some people are really bothered by it.  What really sets the FL apart ...
  • Replied in enjoy
    Its currently the best 70-200 money can buy, for any system.
  • Do you also want softer less well corrected lenses?  Because that's the tradeoff.  Nothing about the new mirrorless mounts will give you inherently smaller lenses unless you resolve to also make ...
  • Cross brand adaptation rarely works well, seamlessly and without glitches, especially where it concerns metering and AF.  With the exception of Canon EF to RF and Nikon FTZ, there haven’t been ...
  • I think you really are best served here with a small square filter set and a good low profile holder that can stack 2 so that you can play with densities and hard/soft grads, and maybe even some ...
  • The only ways to stop a VariND from creating an uneven polarization pattern are: 1.) To reduce the field of view so that the light is largely oriented the same way across the frame.  UWA runs into ...
  • Heliopan is the best, but you will get X pattern interference on your UWA. Get a small square set or a bunch of regular NDs in different densities.
  • Quite interesting. Would be sort of neat if they designed it like a Nikon 24-70G/E, so that it extended towards 70mm and retracted to reach 200mm. Then the hood would protect the extending barrel ...
  • 24-70 is probably my most used as well, but I drop below 24  just enough to necessitate a switch to the 14-24 at least some of the time.  I have a 28-50-85 set that I use for more quiet occasions, ...
  • Good, then they know they're missing an opportunity. :-) I speak only for myself naturally.  Though I'm a heavy Nikon user.  Have used pretty much every full frame pro body since the D700/D3, don't ...
  • This camera body means almost nothing to me, but the lenses are very interesting, two in particular: 15-35 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8.  Now we don't know anything about these, and the details do matter ...
  • It came late, but APS film would have failed regardless.  135mm compacts were just as small, and the film was cheaper with greater variety of stocks and developers.  APS was about automated ...
  • Because digital capture allows reproduction ratios that punch well above their weight when compared to film, there's a tendency to forget that 35mm (135 format) was always the traditional "small" ...
