This is for the older photographer, that gets tired from all those years of carrying 8x10, 4x5, 120 cameras. Rest old timer.

You get what you pay for. Did they only charge $500 for a full days shoot?

I like this old Belarusian saying.

cosinaphile: its a shame american tech companies seem to self-destruct .... I suspect they spend too much effort trying to perform on a quarterly basis and do not look to a long sustained health as a corporate goal

@Mark Apple have too much money to go broke.

In reply to:

sh10453: This opens a new big window of cheating.
A lot of "professional" crooks will be selling this as a Canon L lens, after some minor legend changes, and quite many buyers won't be able to tell the difference.

I think Canon owes it to its customers, especially the "L" customers, to take legal action to force 3rd parties like this to design such lenses in a way that they cannot be "easily" modified and passed as Canon L lenses.

@sh10453 More choice is always better. Canon have been crooks for years with their Japanese business practices...which they learned from America 😜

In reply to:

CaPi: Amazing that Canon customers seem to need even more lens vendors. ;)
I was under the impression that they already had the widest variety to choose from.
Btw I would think that the featured offering would compete with other 3rd party lenses rather than oem equipment

It’s really for the Sony users...but keep it quiet 🀐

This crazy Japanese seller wants almost US$44,000.00! Some sellers are real rip off merchants. alte_sammlerstuecke on eBay is a good example (use to be suntory_hibiki & nikon_and_wine)

In reply to:

brian: X1D has a filter pack. XPan does not. XPan lenses have a short exit pupil distance - especially the 30mm and 45mm. As a result, you get significant filter-induced astigmatism, which Hasselblad is either ignorant of, or else is intentionally remaining silent about. Those who have tried to use short focus Leica M lenses on Sony A7 series cameras will know what I am talking about, since its the same issue (e.g. "corner smearing")

I have had the same problem with my Contax G lenses on my A7 bodies. Only the 90mm is usable. Same problem with some L39 rangefinder lenses as well.

virtualreality: US people are sickening. If you don't want a gun pointed at you, why don't you start by banning fire-arms?

What it comes down to is simple. Do you want to have the right to keep a dead object, or do you want the right to have a living person.
