    Adapted Adapted lenses, any make, for any camera

    I haven't seen a general thread for any adapted lens. Here are a couple of things shot with the Sony a7ii using an old Zuiko 75-150 f4 (one of my favorite zooms for decades), with which the river stone with fossilized ferns was shot, and the Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8, which has become the...

    Pocket zen camera?

    I'm trying to think if there is such a thing as a truly pocketable camera that is quick enough to document the things I encounter while living daily life / hiking, yet also engaging enough to encourage me to slow down and "converse" with the scene and really take my time to consider the image...

    Micro 4/3 So what other camera alternatives are there to the OM5?

    I'm been holding out for the latest version of the em5/OM5, and now that the announcement is official, I'm a bit underwhelmed. It's still a decent camera and it would be a significant upgrade from my current generation m43 cameras, and there's still a fair chance I will end up getting one...

    Micro 4/3 Camera / Lens Recommendation for a Young Newbie

    My DD has at last expressed an interest in photography. Inevitably this will lead to a request for a camera of her own to replace her old, now broken Kodak Easyshare. Second hand, just in case this proves to be a fad, but not too old as, if she develops an interest and my M5iii is commandeered...

    @MountainMan79's post and responses from @JensM and I in the Acquisition thread got me to thinking. Many of us had parents, grandparents or other relatives that were into photography. And like us, some were heavily into it while others were casual users. The result is that a few of us have been...

    This is not my area of expertise but was there ever a compact film camera with a lens that has an f/stop larger than f/2.8? They mostly seem to be f/5.6 or even smaller. I know the Ricoh GR compacts were f/2.8 and they were a premium compact back then. Is that as large as it gets?
