    I am a sucker for G.A.S. and if that 20-35mm wide zoom has good quality I'm in

    Wow That 30/4 TS lens looks terrific for landscape . Not a walking around size if filer is a 105 but perfect on a tripod . 24MM FOV .

    Leica M 10 Monochrome

    If it freezes a lot and only 300 captures it should go back to the DC store . If you bought it with a credit card or PayPal you can make them take it. Send me a PM if you need help.

    Younger photographer reshoots test shots for IQ180, older photographers give him better advice.

    I love when someone restates my position so it sounds stupid ...then proceeds to argue from there . You showed two photographs and questioned ..Why the 2nd photograph showed more noise than the first . The answer was the 2nd photograph was more under exposed than the first . Your argument...

    Younger photographer reshoots test shots for IQ180, older photographers give him better advice.

    Nikestream If you want advice you need to stay focused on the problem to be solved ..not on a bunch of hypothetical solutions .(like warming up the sensor ). CCD sensors are sensitive to underexposure . Two stops under and you will most likely have noticeable noise issues . Saying that you...

    SL2 v SL2s v M10

    I have used all three of these cameras and even have a half dozen trips to Venice to compare . Based on your images you gave us ..you do not require a fast AF camera . You also do not require a high ISO champion . I had no trouble photographing Venice with a 50/1.4 asph using the M8,M9 or...

    Black and White Film Processing

    Back again with some experienced gained with Film labs . Because of limited travel I have shot a lot less film than I anticipated . Most of my experience has been using Leica M3/MP bodies but I also picked up a Leica R6 (which is a superb camera ). I shoot slow and process one roll at time by...

    NIKON Long Lens Challenge ?

    No one doubts Stanleys experience or that the Sony gear A1 in particular is state of the art . (eye auto focus is a dream for wildlife ) But Sony represents a complete rebuild of my sports kit . (Same for Canon) . Nikon has two advantages ..(1) what I have now works great and my kit is...

    NIKON Long Lens Challenge ?

    Jack As always it depends on the intended subjects ..even within Sports there is a lot of variety . The Sports shooters talk about two aspects of AF (which may be somewhat irrelevant to most ) ..(1) target acquisition ..especially picking a subject out of a group like in LaCrosse ...even a...

    NIKON Long Lens Challenge ?

    The only answer ,it seems ,for a Nikon F user with a large sunk cost in Nikon F gear is to keep using it . The potential improvement in AF and reduction in body size is impossible for me to justify a full system switch . The hope is that the Nikon Z9 will provide some real improvement in AF...

    NIKON Long Lens Challenge ?

    The challenge is avoiding the cost of upgrading 4 expensive prime telephotos . I have the 200/2; 300/2.8 ;400/2.8 and 600/4 Nikkors ..they work great on my d5 and would get the job done . I never really tried the D850 with a vertical grip ...but I ve read that the AF is near D5 speed . I...

    NIKON Long Lens Challenge ?

    About 50% of what I have been shooting has been my grandkids sports . Had real fun shooting my 8 year olds Little League season and had one of my most successful projects . Most here know I am a huge Leica Fan Boy and I really tried to make the Leica Sl2_S and the 90-280 SL zoom my working kit...

    SL Lenses ...Understanding Depth of Field

    Watching the Leica Videos about the SL Prime lenses ...Peter Karbe makes a point about how the lenses have been designed to create a shallow DOF . When compared to other Leica lenses ...the MTF peaks higher but also has a narrower footprint . This is intentional and Karbe points to the F2 sum...

    Leica APO 50/2.0 vs. Voigtlander APO 50/2.0

    Lou. I have read all the tests ..looked at the sample images . There is no doubt the Voigtlander is an exceptional lens on the M or the Sony . You know I have a dozen Leica 50mm lenses . Each have very different renderings complimenting a desired output aesthetic . For example...

    Leica APO 50/2.0 vs. Voigtlander APO 50/2.0

    To have any usefulness reviews need to specify two important factors . 1. What camera do you plan to use the lenses on ? Leica M lenses preform best on Leica M or SL bodies and frequently under perform on Sony bodies . The Voigtlander APO lens come in two varieties one for...

    Going back from GFX100S to SL2

    SIZE WEIGHT Completely dependent on your assumptions on lenses you will use and carry . Differences between the A1 and SL2 is 98 grams . Visit camera size website . LENSES Both the A1 and Sl2 are substantially more flexible in accepting adapted lenses than the Fuji . Even if you can...

    So has anyone experienced PDAF pimples on 100S files?

    Joe. My example of the Sl2_S was intended to show that its an aberration that is easy to miss . No one complains about the SL2_S : it doesn t show up in any tests I have seen ....YET I found it and could easily show it to anyone that wants to see it . Just because you can t find...
