  • I still own an FZ200 but it is now fairly old technology. Still a great camera since it is f2.8 out to 600mm but you do give up a lot with the sensor. The FZ1000 has the better sensor but gives up ...
  • I'm going to hit this from a different perspective, personally I think IQ can be highly over rated unless of course you are shooting for some types of publication. But honestly the N1 system is ...
  • Sounds like you have it pretty well covered. Only thing that I thought you missed was a backup battery but looks like you got that as well. Lens wise, the two you currently own should cover you ...
  • If you aren't going to use the cameras dedicated lenses I wouldn't do it. Let me qualify this by saying I have not used the Sony but own the M1. However I have adaptors for my EOS M to Canon EF, ...
  • Replied in Faulty Design
    It does feel like a troll. If it had be a legitimate problem I'm sure all of us 70-300 owners would like to know so we can watch out for the same issue. I know if I had a problem I would post a ...
  • Replied in Great shot!
    Perfect timing, great photo, thanks for posting!
  • Just checked looks like the iris on our N1 lenses shut when the camera is off so that would lessen the chance of frying a sensor.
  • Had this happen to me years ago shooting with my M6 in Bermuda. Since there is no mirror and I had not capped my lens the sun was able to burn a hole through the second shutter curtain. I noticed ...
  • Thanks Jack, I wasn't familiar with the Sony so looked it up on B&H. Spec wise it's pretty impressive and I like the design in terms of shape as it's bang on with how I imagine a DSLR should be ...
  • I own the 70-200 f2.8 plus the Sigma 50-500 and it really boils down to what I am shooting. I find for outdoors/birding I put the Sigma on the 7D II and on the 5D II put a wide zoom such as the ...
  • Only thing I might add is that when I do any extended travel I try and keep my system consistent in terms of batteries and chargers since the biggest problem might be if I loose or damage a ...
  • Hi your old J1 lenses will work just fine. I've seen a few J1's that have had hits to the bottom corner where the battery door is located. I picked up mine cheap because the previous owner had ...
  • Thanks! Worth trying your lens, the adaptors I purchased were out of Hong Kong via eBay and ridiculously cheap. Only thing to watch out for is the quality as Daniel points out. Make sure they can ...
  • Personally I would stick with the dedicated Nikon 1 lenses or at most the FT1 with a Nikon lens. The reason being that with adaptors on any other type of lens you will have to shoot in full manual ...
  • I dunno, I drive a 2000 Saturn with 280,000 clicks. Gets me from point A to B nicely. I wouldn't highly recommend it unless you had a good knowledge of mechanics as it is reaching the point where ...
  • Unfortunately your equivalence theory underscores your fatal misunderstanding of the fundamentals of lens design while fully supporting my arguments. e·quiv·a·lence the condition of being equal or ...
  • Replied in Not so!
    And what were their production figures? Never said it cannot be done but your entire aguement is becoming more and more irrelevant as you spiral closer and closer to my initial observation that ...
  • Replied in Not so!
    Pretty much the entire statement, read the attached link. You also missed a key factor lower cost due to increased production otherwise referred to as economics of scale, which I pointed out ...
  • Replied in Not so!
    Yup realize that as sensor size decrease lens size would as well. Granted that makes you wonder why folks want to attached DSLR lenses on these smaller bodies….. However I suspect you over ...
  • Have you tried the focus tracking? I've been playing around with it for a while and find it pretty handy on subjects that aren't moving too much. More a matter of compensating photographer drifting….
