  • Maybe not the same problem but i had problems with my old sigma 50mm 1.4 with an adapter on a EOS R. The problem was solved by turning off all the inbody lens corrections like distortion, ...
  • Replied in Just curious
    I got the EOS R also recently, i had also doubts between the R and R6. My doubts where also the lack of IBIS in the R. I solved that with the 35 IS for wider shots and the 85 IS or my EF 70-200 ...
  • I like the macro perspective though to get more dept feeling. But for insects it's not ideal because of working distance. Overall i like a 35 because i find it very useful in a urban scenery.
  • Grumble converses in pure pleasure when your retina gets pleased by  the beautiful arrangement of pixels caused by your new 35. Money is like water it needs to flow to keep it fresh.
  • Never thought about the electronic shutter on the Eos R, will need to test it sometime. The mechanical shutter is not too noisy though. On the M6II i never used it either i believe, i did a test ...
  • Thanks for the likes and replies. The toad shot was like a yoga exercise: fully stretched forward with flip screen towards me. Slowly i pushed the lens in front of the toad so he wouldn't be ...
  • Hello, I'm new to the EOS R and yesterday i got my first lens for it the RF 35 1.8 IS Macro. Just sharing some photo's from my first walk with this combination. I'm impressed with the IQ. I have ...
  • There should be an option: expo.simulation in the camera tabs. This controls realtime view of the exposure. I have the R so no ibis, but i believe ibis and lens is are simultaneous on.
  • Thanks, good to know.
  • I agree with reservations. We all want less noise in high iso but with maximum low iso detail, i believe you see this also. The only discussion is who is "owner" of the noise: Pentax or the user ...
  • Replied in 100% crop
    These conditions of low contrast in bad weather is for lenses costing 10 fold a challenge, so i think this 100% crop is as good as it gets. The AF looks good enough in these situations. Thanks for ...
  • Thanks for showing these. For me the first three/four images the focus plane is more upfront you can see the DOF transition in the plants.Because the bird is not that big in the frame i guess that ...
  • Congrats, I use the old 77 regularly with an adapter on Canon gear, i get great portrait shots out of it. Is it better then the Canon 85, measurably NO. If i show clients the results of the ...
  • Thanks Paul, Hopefully some with the K-3 III and children or a spouse or even with a large friend pool will do some portrait shots in different light conditions. I have no proof but i always ...
  • Yes i mean K-3 III and K-3 II, i saw others also refer to them as K33 or K3.3 and K3.2. So i inherited that acronym :-)
  • Hello, The reason i left Pentax was purely because of the Savox AF, i still have the K20D / K-01 / Q. I still have a lot of primes: 15 Lim | 21 Lim | 35 macro | 43 Lim | 55* | 77 Lim | 100 macro | ...
  • Replied in Some...
    Yeah this discussion over two long treads is reaching biblical proportions. Pentax will burn in hell for this death sin in photography, how noise or lack off can give this emotions on either side. ...
  • Replied in Some...
    This is thinking in the past how it used to be. When the sensor is live all the time and is mapping the noise to use in the next image. Like only use the created map in the darkest area's on the ...
  • Aperture and shutterspeed is physical changing the amount of light what hits the sensor, changing these variables controls the real amount of light. So in this regard you CAN test noise levels, as ...
  • Maybe with a hotshoe phone holder, i use one on canon camera's for video or night photography. Thanks to the OP for making this review
