  • I assume I know the answer. If a particular lens fits your shooting style and habits well, you become a 24, a 28... 85 or 105 or whatever guy. Another person would surely handle the same lens at ...
  • I regularly read the posts of anotherMike in this forum. Very detailed, very precise. I bought a few very important lenses for my kit based upon his reviews and comments and never regretted. So its ...
  • I've been doing bird photography and also my wife. The clear lesson after all these years is: you are never long enough. If you go for full image quality with a DSLR is way to costly and ...
  • Whenever I'm out for some causal shooting with no specific aim, it's the Ricoh GR. Light, pocketable, easy to carry, yields good images and after several years in existence still the most rational ...
  • Still there seems to be no better rational solution to this equasion.
  • Sorry, you will have to find it yourself. I do not remember where I found it.
  • The switch from D800E to the D850 was very meaningful for me so you will certainly not regret it. I would happily go for the ML, but I am already in posession of the D850.

    … I started a thread titled: "Time for a new GR?" https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55673280 My post contained the following tables: Ricoh GR I - Aug 21, 2006, 8 MPix, 1 year and 2 months later came

    I have an advantage. ;-) It's already afternoon 3 o' clock here.
  • Replied in Very similar
    To support the Milvus 25/1.4 and a D850 I use a Gitzo 1227 LVL tripod and RRS BH55 (51 is a mistake). Here is an image made at night at a railway station made with this setup:
  • Replied in verybiglobo
    The main reason for dreaming about an Otus 85 is a review by a guy called verybiglebowski, published on January 5, 2016 here at the Dpreview Nikon lens forum. In this review he compared three 85 ...
  • Replied in Leica, no...
    Many years ago I was mesmerized by Leica, the legend and its fabulous lenses. But as years passed and I learned more and more about photography, I arrived to a solid conclusion that there are ...
  • For quite a few years, until recently a Nikon 24/1.4 G that was my main bread and butter landscape lens. Just a few weeks ago I bought a Milvus 25 and the difference is very noticeable: a very ...
  • True! Thanks for the reminder! I just checked E-bay and have seen an OTUS 55 ZF.2 for rougly the same price  as the price of the Milvus 25/1.4 before the 300 euro discount - around 2400 euros. (For ...
  • Replied in Well...
    Would you like to tell this to Zeiss lens guru Lloyd Chambers? ;-) I also do not see too many people chiming in to support your cause. ;-) But sure, if someone would toss a 50/1.5 planar towards me ...
  • Andre, sure, many of us would love to like the 55 Otus and quite a bit, but its price… I had certain difficulties coughing up the doe even for the discounted Milvus 25. I'm quite aware what an Otus ...
  • … I wish we had something of similar caliber at 50mm. Yes, the 50mm Art is there for sure,also with AF, but now we know what Zeiss Milvus lenses are capable of, something similar - a lens with ...
  • Replied in Well...
    … I have not seen much praise heaped on this lens, but rather on the 50/2. You seem to be in a narrow minority…
  • Compared to the combined price of the Otus 85 and the Milvus 25 the D850 is just an "accessory". Get it and problem solved. ;-) On the serious side: the Milvus is available in ZE mount too. Also ...
  • Mike, first, thank you for you valuable advices. second, a big surprise awaits you when you finally get a D850 and mount your Milvus 25 on it. A mighty lens on a mighty camera! Family affairs now ...
