    Fuji (Sigh) Another lens purchase on the horizon

    I made the mistake of wandering into the electrical store in Heathrow last week, assuming that they wouldn't have anything interesting. Unfortunately, they had a 100-400... It was big and heavy but not as much as I thought it would be. The OIS works really well and I want to start getting...

    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...

    Leica 7Artisans 75mm 1.4 M-Mount lens announced!

    7artisans 75mm f/1.25 lens for Leica M-mount specifications and sample photos - Leica Rumors This lens looks like it's going to very good at a reasonable price. Link also has samples and they look great! 7Artisans said they will also make an FE version optimized for other mirrorless cameras...

    Sony My first shots with the 7Artisans 35mm f/2.0 + A7III!

    I've been searching for a cheap replacement for my Voigtlander 40mm 1.4 Nokton MC. While it was very sharp in the center, the field curvature softness was really starting to bug me due to the thick sensor stack of the Sony bodies. I've been looking at other alternatives such as the Voigtlander...

    Fuji Showcase 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 Lens for Fuji

    To be honest I'm not sure how I tripped on this lens. But after using it for a few days I'm very glad I did. This lens retails for $119. and not unlike 7a's 25mm f1.8, ($79.), it seems to offer some very serious image quality for an exceptional price. The build quality appears to be very...

    Sony New a6000 owner

    As per my thread on the UK Photography Show, I now have an a6000 with the 16-50 kit lens. I've also got an adapter to fit my old Russian Jupiter-8 50mm f2 lens so that should be fun! First couple of test shots below. Nothing fancy but the 16-50 gets closer than I thought it would, and seems...

    Leica Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f1,5 Serial Number Check

    Hello, I have a wartime CZJ Sonnar 5cm f1,5 in Leica Thread Mount serial # 2870001 which seems to date it approx. from 1942. I need advice on how to unscrew the optic module to check for matching serial numbers and perhaps determine it's authenticity. I am loathe to dismantle/damage the lens due...

    Images by iPhone 6s-plus using clip-on wide-angle lenses.

    I have an inbox full of unprocessed images, but although this one is very atypical, it's an interesting challenge for me. The OlloClip wide-angle lens has quite a bit of distortion, but getting more used to it, I'm making better use of its features - in this case some vignetting. The fortunate...

    As I walked one mid winters morning, it was a grey and uninspiring day (with apologies to Laurie Lee). A few minutes up the lane past my cottage and I joined the 1000 year old royal carriage road. I didn't take many photographs this morning, most were different to one another and none really...

    After yesterdays dramatic seas it was a much quieter day today. It being Friday I had my usual lunch of fish and chips washed down with a pint of cider in the Queens Arms at Slapton, but caught an earlier bus and did some strolling around photography before it clouded up. Slapton was already a...

    This is Peartree Point looking back towards Start Point Lighthouse. This is a good area for Atlantic Grey Seals and I was amazed that what I took to be a piece of driftwood bobbing around just beyond the rocks that are immediately in front of my position turned out to be a seal, then I saw a...

    These two masts rise 450' into the air and the transmitter was opened by the BBC in 1939. The nearest mast is the transmitter, the far mast the reflector. In 1944 their roles were reversed and this became the only transmitter in the UK to broadcast radio services to the troops serving with the...
