Stop. Don't buy that new lens. It's you who suck, not your gear. Learn to shoot.

And it looks like shit, exactly what I was saying... I have used plenty of large optics before and have seen what they are capable of at great distances. The reality is, not much beyond scientific measurements or documentation.

This is a board for photography. Have some photographic standards ffs.
>>
>>3578287
Inb4 the moon
Plebs gonna pleb. They think focal length is going to work magic for them. Ignore the angular size of an eagle from 300 yards away, ignore the total shite quality snapshits you end up with from that distance no matter the optics. Plebs are impressed by the notion not the results.

>muh look at dis I took dis from 2 miles away
>oh wow dats far
>ya dats far but I ken do it cuz power!!1!
>>
>>3578299
>what is telephoto landscape
I've high quality long range shots taken on ten miles. Quality at that distance stops being about optics at all. You need reach, the rest depends on atmospheric conditions. It's the least predictable form of landscape photography. I can carry 600mm equivalent with me for month and never use it, or get anything with it, and then on a day when I'll least expect it, it'll all pay off.
>>
>>3578374
You don't understand scale or angular sizes at all. Stitching landscapes is nothing like trying to shoot an eagle from 300 yards away which is what the retard was showing me here >>3578281
How acceptable the image looks depends on subject size. No matter the size of the object, the resolving power is the same though. You cannot compare a mountain range or building to an animal.
>quality at that distance stops being about optics at all
Idiotic statement. It's both.
>depends on atmospheric conditions
I already said that in my first post here >>3578179
>equivalent
Even more evidence that you're in over your head, babbygear.
>>
>>3578381
Where did I mention stitching? You sound to me like someone using long lenses for one thing only. And that's shooting birbs. I'd say you're way out of your depth here.

Literally has no impact on the discussion at all. Stitch them or don't, there is no difference. Wait... are you confusing stitching with stacking? Because that's the only thing that would make your comment make sense. Embarrassing.
>>
>>3578390

No, the reply was not intended to the above anon, it was intended to you only, and your obviously mistaken conclusions about use of long lenses at longer distances.

Also, stop spamming two posts at the same time, it's pointless and shits the board... You can post two things in same post, we don't have twitter limits here.
>>
>>3578396
If he was complaining about 90mm and subjects being 300 yards away, he wasn't talking about landscapes and neither am I. Your social retardation prevented you from realizing this. Also:
>thinking 600mm is a lot
>thinking 600 equiv is actually 600mm
Post your snapshits or shut up.
>>
>>3578397
>Also, stop spamming two posts at the same time
He said in his second post. Lol, are you high?
>>
>>3578404
Still trying to play the sheriff? Why exactly would I need to post images for your personal convenience?
>>
>>3578396
I knew he was talking about wildlife because I can use logic and pick up on cues. He responded to me (not you) and confirmed by posting an eagle photo. What I said still stands: focal length will not compensate for 300 yards for wildlife apart from wide scenic shots incorporating wildlife. He needs to get a lot closer if he wants his subject to be the focal point.

You were not part of this discussion and are derailing it with your autism. Fuck off. If you are lonely and just need to talk to someone, try Facebook.

Why do you think I included it? To give you an out that you would take if you were weak-minded, of course. And you took it confirming what I have already said about you. Once again:

If he said 90mm was't enough for subjects 300 yards away, how does your brain manage to come to the landscape conclusion? Are you high right now or just new to photography?

Increasing the apparent size of a mountain range 10 miles away is not the same as increasing the apparent size of an animal 1 mile away, retard. Of course you can get acceptable looking mountain shots at 50m/pixel resolution. Try that with an animal though.

You're so far off the mark it isn't even funny. Just fuck right off, you're too high for this right now.

What are your favorite (affordable) vintage lens, anons? I bring a cheapo Minolta MD 135 2.8 around and while it's far from sharp, I'm really liking the film look I get from it.
>>
>>3580521
I love my Rokkor 55mm f/1.7.
>>
>>3580521
You should have bought the MD 135 3.5.

My favorite is the MD 45mm f/2. It's a cheap lens and came standard on the lower end SLR's (SRT 100x etc.), but it's tiny and offers the ideal "natural looking" focal length.
>>
>>3577937

For me it's the MC PG 50mm 1.4

Sure, networking and organizational skills, maybe; but those two could never successfully market anything to me. Even if it was totally free, I wouldn't buy what they're selling.

Tony is a gearfag because early in his career he was a programmer and tech writer. Gearfagging just comes with the territory. You don't have to be a photographer to review technical aspects of tech products.
>t. developer and gearfag
>>
>>3582598
obviously a camera with aperture, shutter speed and focus controls is the minimum point of entry. that costs about $20, analog or digital.
>>
>>3582694
My phone already does that in pro mode and takes raws. It's sensor is just noisy and isn't that great. It's rather sensitive and finicky.
>>
>>3582682
>You don't have to be a photographer to review technical aspects of tech products.
You do if you wish some credibility.
>>
>>3582927
lol yes. Tony hardly ever takes photos. Chelsea is the photographer, Tony takes photos of his wife's daughter running about after soccer practice or some shit.

The story about how Tony gambled the kid's college fund while his "wife" cried says enough. OK it worked out but what a shitbag.

is that guy some kind of disgusting aged hapa half-breed?

I disagree. He isn't (usually) talking about art, but consumer products for capturing and displaying images. You could argue that one shouldn't take advice about creating compelling art from him, but his gearfagging is fine.

Shut up, Chelsea. Your comically ballooned features give your face a quality suited only to pornography. You're one of those girls who was never hot enough to be popular, or get fucked by boys you actually wanted (for more than one night, at least). Queen of the losers is what you get to be. You married a half-cuck huckster. Take your 8/10 body and your 5.5/10 face and go be a cumdumpster on Pornhub. Probably more lucrative and only slightly more bereft of dignity.
