    Tease.

    It'll really have to be something super special to make me turn in my Phase 150mm D.

    Well....it is substantially smaller. We'll test optical qualities next week.

    But who said anything about turning in your 150mm D? Ken, you can have the best of both worlds. Treat yourself! You deserve it!

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    Hey Doug! You are a teaser, but you already know that A question for you: is it true that it focusses only down to 1.5 mt (compared to 1 mt of the old 150 f2.8)? That would be a potential deal breaker for me right off the start, so I am very interested in what you and others here feel about that (if true, of course). Thanks in advance!

    Yes indeed! That Phase 150 is the sharpest lens in my arsenal. And it's f2.8.

    I'm seriously considering the 110 for the 150LS. I need to test it though. I'm next Doug. LOL

    Steve's comments apply better to you, Guy..... I wouldn't give up my Schneider 110mm LS either!

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    I know and no rush to even do it UNLESS it smokes the 110 which I doubt. Funny thing is I loved the 150 and 110 on my P40. Now FF things have changed and a liitle different feel.

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    Do I need to upgrade my Phase One body to a DF in order to use the LS lenses or can the internal shutter of the lens be disabled?

    Thanks.

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    Why would you want a LF lens without beeing able to use it ? I wouldn't want it. When again, i would never spend the money to upgrade from an AF to DF...

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    My 150LS is at the dealer and I am impressed by the optics. However, the focus mechanism on the longer LS lenses (have tried 110 and 150) is junk. Basically, you cannot trust these lenses to hold a manual focus if they are at all out of the horizontal position. Or if you move about.

    I understand this is a known issue and we can do some button remapping as a work around, but I jump between MF and AF a lot. Don't want to do a bunch of menu stuff every time and I like my AF to run off the half depression of the shutter release.

    People seem to have come to terms with this but I find it annoying. I am looking at cancelling my 150LS order, even at the great price of the Blad trade-in package. Blad lenses never did this.

    Perhaps the 110 and 150 are unusual. Does anyone know if the 240 has the same crappy MF as the other LS lenses?

    I prefer the rear button be used for AF anyway. So for me it's not a big deal. With autofocus set to the rear button you can easily manually focus (it will stay in place) and autofocus (by using the rear button) interchangeably with zero other changes.

    If you absolutely must have your focus on the shutter then there is no work around.

    Setting the DF body to Rear-button-focus

    The LS lenses are ONLY compatible with the DF body.

    When mounted on an incompatible body like the Phase One AF body or Mamiya AFD2 you will not be able to stop down the aperture and of course you won't be able to use the leaf-shutter and you won't receive metadata.

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    Thank you Doug. Yes, it does work and I suppose I can get used to rear button for AF - but I do miss AEL. It just seems sad that there is no custom function to leave the AF motor engaged in MF mode. That would leave the default AF settings and AEL alone.

    After making the rear button the Autofocus button the AEL function is still there; it's just now on the front button on the body near the lens. I will grant you for sure that is a less convenient place for it to be if you use it often.

    Re: 150mm LS Arrives

    Sorry guys, with our workshop next week we're not going to have any time at all this week even for teaser shots.

    We will however have this lens at our workshop so we will have samples galore from Guy, Jack, myself, Steve, and our attendees from our workshop. Probably the best field testing one could hope for a new lens.
