  • A 16 or 17mm fisheye would give the same field of view but would be curvilinear rather than rectilinear .
  • Replied in East Bank
    The water theme continued (loosely ; - )
  • Apples to apples, objectively one usually wants to start with the worst case examples and work up from there rather than cherry pick the best results from one sample, but that is an entirely ...
  • I must have missed the conversation at that end of the bar. Most of what I hear and see is how bad the corners and edges are on the modern hi-rez senzors. Corners and edges that were not a problem ...
  • It is kind of interesting to read some of the contorted logic used to rationalize buying legacy film lenses, along with trying to find a body to use them on, adding focal length reducers, proper ...
  • Replied in New snow
    Evening light.
  • One doesn't necessarily have to post to get comments or likes.  Maybe just something to add to the mix? I liked the mill set but didn't have anything worthwhile to say about them  ; - )
  • There's something evocative about the last. Maybe it's the straight backed chair in the stern. A working boat? Nothing is wasted? Nice set.
  • A great idea! With a little over a year of the a7ii trying its best to train me to be better, an eclectic bunch... January, path (E-1 & ZD 7-14, ooc jpg) April, Town Meeting (Voigtländer 28mm f/1.9 ...
  • Replied in Shimming
    There are a couple of ways to adjust thread mount adapters that are short. The basic idea is to shim (add thickness) so the lens racks in closer to infinity at the infinity stop. You can unscrew ...
  • Not a book, but it is a decent primer: Lens Genealogy Part 1 By Roger Cicala Published August 18, 2011 "If you shoot with a good-or-great quality wide-aperture prime lens chances are high that it’s ...
  • The light in the first is wonderful.
  • If you want something similar to the Nokton, the closest to it is probably a Summilux, the 28 or 35. Both the 17.5 and 25 Noktons are in a class by themselves. The 25 is probably the best m4/3 ...
  • I've been using legacy lenses on digital camera bodies for about ten years. I'm not really interested in playing with legacy glass, it simply offers an extended tool set. The best camera bodies to ...
  • The male of the species. They don't usually display in the fall. Or, at least I don't connect the behavior with this season. It's more of a spring fling thing. Double glazed + screen.
  • Watching the antics of a flock of sixty or so wild Turkeys for half an hour and the term “turkey trot” might help explain the analogy. The more, the merrier ; - )
  • Replied in POCD
    POCD or PoCD: Plan of Conservation and Development. Starting in 1996 every town was required to have a plan, updated every ten years by the PZC (Planning and Zoning Commission). The idea is to set ...
  • And Roosters. Different days, same players. Pardon the double-glazed lack of clarity. The windows stayed closed as they tend to spook easily.
  • Some recent . . . 10/15 10/27 (same view as above, different perspective) Nearby meadow 11/03
  • Replied in Taron
