    My Gear A Week Challenge - Week 13 - Nikon Z6 - Nikon 28/2.8, 50/1.8S, Meike 85/1.8

    Decided to take a spin with the 85mm f/1.8 on the Z6 and see how it does compared to it on the Z fc. Will put this kit through the paces starting tomorrow.

    Nikon Showcase Meike 85mm f/1.8 Z-Mount

    This lens just arrived a few minutes ago. Will give you some initial impressions. No images to share just yet due to uncooperative weather. Price $200 Metal mount with USB connector for firmware updates. The plastic of the lens body and the hood feel cheap and is probably the a big thing...

    Manual Lens Meike 12mm f/2.8 mk II (Fuji X)

    This Meike 12mm f/2.8 popped up during a random search with £50 off plus a 5% discount voucher... so I picked it up for £98 inc. postage. I probably wouldn't have bought it at full price but it seemed like a bit of fun to help while away the hours until Spring. It seems suitably solid and well...

    Fuji Meike MK-F-AF3 Auto Focus Extension Tube Set - First Images

    So, I saw these for $25 USD on Amazon and thought, why not. A 10mm and a 16mm tube and they are stack-able. AF works with both stacked and OIS still functions on lenses that have it. I'll be doing a full review later, but I'm thinking I will be getting my $25 worth out of these. Got these 3...

    Infrared Gear The Meike 25mm f1.8 and infrared

    The Meike 25mm f1.8 arrived about an hour ago, and the first thing was to test it to see how well it did infrared photography. The answer is not perfectly but well enough to be entirely usable. The short version: it's just fine in infrared color up to f5.6, and in black-and-white up to f8 and...
