    Sigma The Sigma 15-30mm EX DG Lens - Revisiting modern vintage glass!

    I've been gravitating towards smaller, lightweight lenses. I used to chase around fast apertures and big glass, but now I'm more content with smaller lenses that still exhibit excellent sharpness, pleasant rendering characteristics and cheaper prices! Also one thing I notice lugging around a...

    Sigma The Sigma 15-30mm EX DG Lens - Revisiting modern vintage glass!

    Lately I've been researching all the various wide angle lenses you can get for a modern DSLR. After shooting mirrorless for awhile and witnessing the smallness and simplicity of compact M-mount wide angle glass, especially the Voigtlander 15mm f/4.5 Heliar lens, I've been searching for a DSLR...

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    Venues are totally missing out not building temporary installations that are easy to setup while integrating photo ops, creating social media hype and attracting customers all-in-one. For example, I saw a bunch of these LED light tunnels when I was in Bangkok. People love these! Street...

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    I've also noticed the opposite with film photographers in Japan. Many will showcase their work in small print galleries and some photographers will have little or no exposure on social media. I also find such a support network lacking at least here in a city like Los Angeles. Maybe I should...

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    One thing I noticed is that dedicated camera usage in the west is down, but in many parts of Asia people still like using both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. In fact, because camera equipment is so expensive, I find the craft to be more well respected. I notice used camera equipment in Asia tends...

    Google Pixel 3 (I think I'm done with "traditional" cameras)

    I'm probably old school, but I prefer traditional cameras any day of the week.

    7Artisans 35mm f2 Sonnar-Design lens review

    Quick question for those who have this lens. How are the corners? I also have a Voigtlander 40mm 1.4 Nokton, that I usually shoot at f2-2.8 for daily shooting. The lens is very sharp stopped down and I only shoot wide open when I need the light gathering at night. Can I expect better corner...

    Fuji XE-1 or NEX-6 + Lens Turbo?

    Thanks for the replies guys! I ended buying Luke's XE-1. Now I'm trying to decide if I should get the Zhongyi Lens Turbo II or the Roxsen Focal Reducer. I have the Roxsen for M43 and I have no complaints. Though if the Lens Turbo II is a bit better, I'd have no problem paying a little extra for it.

    Fuji XE-1 or NEX-6 + Lens Turbo?

    A couple of questions for those that use Fuji for adapted lenses: - How does the focus peaking compare to other cameras (like Sony, Panasonic, etc.). - Is the EVF laggy when panning the camera? I really have no plans to invest in native lenses if I go Fuji or Sony, so AF performance isn't a...

    Fuji XE-1 or NEX-6 + Lens Turbo?

    Part of the reason I was considering the Fuji were for the jpegs. I really just want this rig to be a SOOC MF setup with minimal PP. The A6000 seems to be another option, but price-wise + focal reducer is more than I want to spend.

    Fuji XE-1 or NEX-6 + Lens Turbo?

    I'm considering picking up either a used Fuji XE-1 or NEX-6 and a Lens Turbo so I can use some of my Nikon MF glass and get close to the FF look without having to buy another Nikon FX DSLR (I have two already). Prices on both cameras have dropped and I'm not really interested in spending all...

    The new Nikon Df is beautiful

    The Nikon 50mm 1.8 G is top rated, I think in order to best it you'd have to go with the new 58mm 1.4 G, or for ultimate sharpness the Zeiss Otus 55mm 1.4!

    The new Nikon Df is beautiful

    I don't see much size advantage with the A7/R once you equate lenses: http://camerasize.com/compact/#487.395,495.353,ha,t
