  • True, but then it would have had at least one reader less, because I find the "slide show" format to make reading so uncomfortable especially on the small screens I mainly use (netbook, tablet),...

  • The ultra-thin filter stack would be needed to really retain the full image quality of a lens designed for film, and possibly the sensor would need specially aligned micro-lenses, too, like the ...
  • Nice. Can you say something about how that setup compares to the Olympus 50-200/2.8-3.5 (preferably SWD) in handling, AF and perhaps IQ? Unfortunately, my good old 50-200 needs either repair or ...
  • Nice. Definitely one of the more interesting EF lenses for adapting to Micro Four Thirds, as there simply is no equivalent native solution available for Micro Four Thirds yet, and there never was ...
  • Replied in Wrong again
    I can't "shut down" anything here, as I am neither admin nor mod, you can perfectly well continue to write whatever you want on every topic you choose, including what you wrongly and maliciously ...
  • Replied in Not good
    But if it really helps your well-being to put the boot in, never mind, carry on!
  • And that's where I leave it at, as I don't feel inclined to waste even more time in defending myself against your blatantly false interpretations of what I wrote. Have a good day, Robert
  • Replied in Yes, I did
    Yes, I did, every minute of it, and after watching it I felt really, really sorry for the wasted time. Everything I needed to know was already said in your post and could have been presented in ...
  • I can't believe I just watched a video of a guy whining about an obviously defective adapter for close to half an hour.
  • One other option, perhaps, comes to my mind, if you can get a good (second-hand) deal: the first Panasonic m43 with IBIS, the GX7. It's a great little camera and includes a viewfinder, too. My own ...
  • Yes, but the old Olympus 12 MP sensor is not something I would consider anymore today, it is far behind the later 16 MP sensor not only in resolution, but in noise and high-ISO performance, too. Th ...
  • AFAIK, the Micro Four Thirds protocol basically is the Four Thirds protocol (if I'm not completely mistaken, the FT/MFT adapter simply connects the FT pins to the corresponding MFT contacts), plus ...
  • While I don't think IQ is the foremost reason to switch from a DSLR to a mirrorless camera, and while, of course, there still are many good reasons for staying with the DSLR, too, there indeed are ...
  • I don't think it's just a variant of the Commlite adapter. The tripod connector isn't detachable, for example. And there's a functional reason, too, because the adapter has a dedicated mechanical ...
  • Interesting indeed. I've found a first quick hands-on report that sounds at least promising: http://www.pcmag.com/review/349648/fotodiox-fusion-smart-af-adapter-nikon-to-sony Given the few small ...
  • The thing is, none of the current digital instant-print solutions are even remotely as convenient as the classic Polaroid camera.

    Which is why even today Fuji makes an astoundingly high portion...

  • Actually, if both the focal reducer and the teleconverter were "ideal optics" (which of course don't exist in reality) without any image degradation whatsoever, the result of using them combined ...
  • Of course one of the Sony A7 variations would be the most straight-forward camera choice to adapt old (35mm) lenses. But I think it's still not completely stupid to adapt lenses to Micro Four ...
  • Commented on article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D40

    #717: As I said, the D40x, just like the D60 "a D40 with 10MP", is something completely different, and no wonder it outperforms "a couple 14 MP point and shoots" in about every aspect. If you have...

  • I suspect I'm one who contributed to those posts you're a bit sceptical about ;-) – let me try to state things maybe a bit more precisely... The light ray angle problem is indeed a wide-angle ...
