which MILC should i pic? sony or canon? or should i say fuckit and just go pentax k1?

GF and I have been enjoying my new camera + nifty fifty, I want to get her something she can carry around in her purse. What elevated point-and-shoot can be had for <$300 used that is worth while? Preference goes to fast prime over zoom, doesn't have to be 50mm equivalent
>>
>>3849132
You could get an MFT camera with a 20mm f1.7 or 25mm f1.7 for about 250 USD.

Think EM10 mark 1 or mark 2
>>

>which MILC should i pic? sony or canon?
Sony has more native glass. Canon has a far better UI, the RF lenses they do have knock it out of the park, and their EF lenses are essentially native except for needing a metal tube for the right registration distance. (RF protocol is a superset of EF protocol, and EF glass works as well as it does on DSLRs.)

Personally I would go Canon. But I have to admit that there are some tempting combos in Sony land, such as the A73 with one of their new compact primes.

Completely. The G1X III exists with an APS-C sensor. It's THE compact camera to have.
>>
>>3851303
but the g1x III has the slower lens, worse zoom, costs more, is heavier, is bigger, worse battery, older image processor (lower ISO, worse IS, 1/3 the continuous shooting fps)
on the other hand the g1x III is weather sealed, has the bigger sensor and has DPAF.
do you not care about the lense?
>g5x II 24-120 / f1.8-2.8
>g1x III 24-72 / f2.8-5.6
it's so much better. DPAF and weather sealing are the real motivators for me getting the g1x over the sensor
>>
If I actually, unironically, wanted to run minecraft on my Canon camera, how hard would it be to beat the wither?
>>
>>3851316
Faster is relative to the sensor size.
In equivalent terms, the g5x2's lens is more like f/4.9-7.6 and the g1x3's is more like f/4.4-8.96
In terms of noise, a picture on the g5x2 should have about as much noise as one taken with 3 times the ISO on the g1x3.
>>3851326
Neat, is that CHDK?
I've only tried Arkanoid on ML.

Get a Fuji.
They have the most bang for your buck and the best balance between funcionality, looks and performance.

We truly are blessed to live in a world where Fuji cameras exist.

that's good to know thanks. i went from really wanting the g5xII to kinda wanting the g1xIII and now i don't know what i want. either way i'm going to wait for a sale so maybe they'll announce something new before then. is there anything comparable to these 2 cameras from other manufacturers? i was looking at the sony rx100's but they feel like garbage in the hand. weather sealing is pretty important too considering my lifestyle (outdoorsy in the rainy pacific northwest)

Depending on the life it led before you it might need to get light leak proofed mostly with black tape and black paint and it might need the rf cam calibrated. I did all this when i bought a 30 quid fed 4 a few years back and mostly they are just heavy and you doubt all you take on it unlike a similar age slr so you end up shooting mostly landscape or buildings at f 8.

I ended up buying it today. It was via craigslist, I saw that he dropped it to $250 today so I sent a $200 offer and he accepted. It was listed for 4 days so I must have been his first response, he seemed happy to get rid of it anyhow. Worse case is I don't like it and sell it on ebay for a profit

Bear in mind that the equivalence I mentioned applies to DoF (ability to produce bokeh, in other words). When it comes to exposure, f/1.8 is f/1.8. But the baseline noise is a bit higher on the g5x2.
An intermediate would be the Four Thirds sensor cameras, bigger sensor than the g5x2 but smaller than the g1x3. There you have the LX100, the LX100 II and the D-Lux 7 (essentially a Leica branded LX100 II worth 400 more bucks).
Faster glass but even less range (24-75mm f/3.4-5.6 equivalent).
>>

Congrats. That camera is my every day companion. It’s good.

hey /p/

all my camera gear got destroyed in a fire, I need to buy ALL new gear, tripods, bags, SD cards, batteries.

>prefer Canon but Im willing to check out other brands

Bodies Im considering range wildly in price,

Canon 6D2
Canon 5D4
Canon 5DS
Canon 90D
Canon R5

Im also considering going balls deep with a GFX 100s, though Id have to put some of that on a CC and would then have to wait to get glass

Being weather sealed is a must and I like the idea of IBIS. Video is secondary to stills and I like flippy screens. I prefer the ergos of Canon as that what Im used to using and thats what Im used price shopping for.

>inb4 the one i have with me

>i currently have none
>>
>>3851705
Are you more of a wide or a telephoto guy?
Also if considering the R5 why not the 1D X III too? Similar price if I'm not mistaken, gets most of the AF and other fancy features other than 4K and is reflex and nice.
>>
>>3851502
Both Amazon and Adorama have x-t4s in stock right now. I think warranties on bodies are important.
>>
>>3851708
wide

I like landscape and urban decay and weird angles, which is why I like flippy screens. Im in a lot of old buildings with no power so I prefer FF with a high base ISO. I shoot offhand a lot which is why Id like to have IBIS, like in the R5, so that I dont have to worry about getting a lens with IBIS built in, and I can just get the faster stuff

HOWEVER

I do want to move into weddings and protraiture.

All that screams full frame to me, so you can forget about the 90D as nice as it is.
6D Mark II seems like the obvious choice to me aside from IBIS.
>a lens with IBIS built in
Sorry to be pedantic but you mean IS. IBIS is "in body image stabilization" lol.
An alternative could be the Pentax K1 Mark II.
Has IBIS, video is secondary as you said, the screen is beyond flippy, the work of madmen. Some anon posted pic related a while ago, it reminded me of a chainlink 4x4 Jeep I saw a while ago contorting to climb some rocks. Granted, it's not just the screen but the tripods doing weird stuff there but the point stands.

RX100 lineup post v3 are pretty decent for point and shoot.
I bought an RX100M5A(Differences between the M5 is little to nothing) about a year and a half ago when it was on sale for about $700ish.
I could have gone for an upgraded A6XXX version, but I've already moved onto full frame.

Quality is alright, but the right lens on the A6000 still manages to do better, obviously because bigger sensor.
However the features you get such as a built in ND filter.
Versions 6+ they changed the fstop and changed range from 24-70mm to 24-200mm.
The minimum focal distance changed from 5cm to 8cm too.
Sony seemed to have moved the 24-70mm lens to their new vlogging cameras, but those lack a viewfinder.

Overall the lineup is pretty decent for point and shoot, however they barely get any firmware updates.

Pic related for size comparison between a a6000, rx100m5a, and an a7iii.

R5 is the absolute best choice if you can afford it.
5Ds is basically equal to R5 in stills IQ but video is poor by comparison (1080p with no video AF).
5D4 stills IQ not as good, but it does have video DPAF and 4k (though cropped).
6D2 is "worse" stills IQ (though still good), DPAF video but only 1080p.

90D is a great camera but if you have the money I have to say go FF.

It allows you to use it from some odd angles, it's not necessarily better but different. It can do things the swivel screen can't, and the swivel screen can do things flex-tilt can't. And most importantly, it's an articulated screen on a full frame camera that gets awesome resolution. With the 5D variants lacking it and the 90D being 1.6 crop and anon being a wide angle guy it seemed like an option he'd want to be aware of. Because as far as Canon goes the only FF DSLR with a flippy screen is the 6D II.
Pentax has best in class weather sealing, pixel shift for those insane resolution pictures, IBIS, it's a really neat package. Pentax cameras are labors of love.

You probable weren't here before the Viltrox era when Fujishooters were crying and begging for Sigma to save them from overpriced fujiiflm lenses.

>>3851594
what i did was set the lens to infity go outside and point at moon or a moutain or something in far inifity see if the patch matches in the viewfinder. in my case it didnt so i had to rotate the cam inside the camera.

then got a mice meter stick put the camera on a tripod and outside just so there is good light put a flat piece of wood exactly one meter from the surface of the wood to the film plane of the camera. and then i was getting focused.

It requires giving up your interest in IBIS, but you owe it to yourself to check out Nikon. They're really the reining king of DSLRs. They have plenty of lenses with IS so you really don't need it in the body. It seems you prefer the DSLR form factor. The D780 is a good more affordable option and a very modern camera, and the D850 is the reining champ of DSLRs to date from any manufacturer.

If you're open to mirrorless, the related picture may be relevant. The R5 is the big boy on the block but there are things it isn't the best at.

Is the fuji 35mm 1.4’s ‘magic’ rendering down to focus fall off and it not always being strongly contrasty? If so, does the supposed magic reduce when stopped down to f8 vs 1.4? Hard to find good discussion about the character of the lens that isn’t all focused on f1.4 or f2.

>>3852303
No, but all electronics has finite life span, and it's getting shorter with each year. There are even reasons to suspect built in obsolescence. Chances are high that you'll get one that will work for few months, then it's either costly repair, if it's even serviceable, or back to ebay.

What are my options as far as cold-shoe flashes go?
I hardly ever use a flash to begin with, but if there's a cheap flash for a cold-shoe I might pick one up just in case.
Also, what other neat stuff can I get to stick in the cold-shoe?
I've got a little viewfinder that'll mount to one, but that's a bit redundant.
I've heard that there's a light meter you can get for that, but I've already got a handheld meter. Would a meter that mounts to the camera have any real benefit over the handheld?

Just stick to your smartphone.

The Panasonic has crappy autofocus.
The Sigma overheats to 140 degree farhenheit in normal usage.
The Sony only does 8-bit video.

The camera market is in its deathbed due to the manufacturers insisting on having flaws like these deliberately.

Nope. Ironically, because the Sigma SA mount is so similar to the EF mount on your Canon, there's basically no way to adapt the one to the other.

On the plus side, the lens you have there is a super cheap third-party kit zoom, so you can get a lens just like it with the EF mount for less than fifty bucks.

>Not really, you can buy pretty any broken Sigma lens for EF to use as a donor.
Not necessarily. The mount part of the lens might be slightly different depending on the model lens (e.g., the hole at the back might be a different size depending on how much the rear element moves between the donor lens and his SA lens).

Additionally, while it's true that the SA protocol is just EF in a trenchcoat and sunglasses, it's *Sigma's implementation* of EF, which has not always been a perfect imitation. Notably, older Sigma lenses designed for film-era EOS bodies often don't work properly on modern digital bodies (or even the final generation of film bodies). So there's no guarantee that the EF protocol being spoken by his SA lens would be compatible with the EF protocol being spoken by his modern T7.

Regardless, even if it is possible and he gets ahold of a Canon-mount version of that same lens, it's still going to be a non-trivial effort to convert. I did some googling and the process likely involves soldering, for instance. So maybe he'll save twenty bucks or so, but it's gonna be a hassle, and he might be out even more money if it's his first time soldering (remember: heat the work, not the solder).

And even if everything goes perfectly, the reward is... A shitty film-era kit lens that only has slightly more reach and much less image quality than his kit lens. Oh, and now he doesn't have a lens for his Sigma camera body if he ever wants to shoot with that.

Here:
https://www.keh.com/shop/canon-ef-28-80mm-f-3-5-5-6-ii-standard-zoom-lens.html

Genuine Canon EF 28-80, forty-three bucks. Or even better, spend a little bit more and get a lens that's actually worth spending any money on. Frankly, the Sigma 28-80 f/3.5-5.6 is not worth the amount of time we've spent discussing it.

Dear /gear/, I kindly ask for your opinion on planning on Nikon camera.

Right now, I have D5300 with three lenses: two DX ones (35mm 1.8 and 18-105mm 3.5-5.6) and one "normal" (Sigma 70-200mm 2.8). Since I finally got a job, I can start planning out buying full frame camera I saved money for before. I was thinking about D750 and, since crop lenses are unsuitable, Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 ED VR. Total budget would be around 6000 pln which is equivalent of 1335 EUR, all gear would be used one. However, I wanted first to ask for opinion.

I was thinking about stretching budget bit and buy some 50mm lens since I very often use that 35mm but Im not sure if it would work nicely with full frame. Was thinking about used Zeiss (50mm 1.4) but are there more reasonable options? Also, is D750 still good choice for Nikon full frame? I might not realize importance of other factors here but 850 seems just to use bigger MP count, which might not be beneficial, especially when I tend to shoot with low light conditions, by hand and indoors. Meanwhile, their mirrorlens seems to be too expensive for what they offer (plus, I would need to buy that special type of memory and adapters for lenses). I also found cheaper than normal 750 body but with 200k photos taken and Im worried if this would affect its overall life greatly. What's your opinion?

Thank you for any advice or reply.
>>
>>3856760
the 50mm 1.8 nikkor is solid anon, cant really go wrong, and no real reason to go for a faster one unless you really feel you need it
>>
>>3856763
>>3856760
should add theyre also quite cheap used
>>
>>3856760
nikon z5 + ftz adapter + nikkor z 50mm f/1.8 is arguably the finest 50mm you can buy, and worth the price of body alone. bodies are dirt cheap ebay.
>>
>>3856763

Zeiss really won't be any sharper or anything?

>>3856766

I have to add that Im from Europe so no eBay for me. I checked local offers and there are no used Z5 bodies, only new ones for 7000 PLN which is already way too much. Instead I found used Z6 at price of used D750 but without adapter and with 220k photos on count. Would that suggest it being completely wear off?
>>
>>3856773
I mean a bit but like sharpness on 50mm primes faster than f2 is a logarithmic curve
you get pretty heavy diminishing returns for the cost

you can also ask /ic/, drawing tablet general thread.
I have no experience with desktop screen tablets since I still use my old Intous for editing if needed and use my Galaxy Tab instead for drawing. I'd probably choose better color or at least if I choose resolution, the screen of the tablet can be correctly calibrated with a colorimeter if that's possible so it matches with my monitor.
>>
>>3856886
probably one without a screen unless you're spending a lot of money

Just to be sure - when buying used bodies, how much photo count suggest very short expected life of motor? I assume that few thousand is okay, 20-30k less but still okay but when talking about numbers like 200k?
>>
>>3856948
You do realize you can replace shutters, it is a routine operation at every camera service. Plus after the rated life the shutters mostly just become less precise so only in the highest shutterspeeds you'll see some variance in exposure
>>
>>3856948
200k is usually around what decent bodies are rated for which means they should last at least that long. That being said some will die early and others go on past 1 million
Find the shutter rating for whatever camera you're looking at, if it's 200k and the one you're about to buy is at 50k then you know it's a quarter through the minimum expected life and should have at least 150k more shots with it, but there's no guarantee
>>
>>3856978
>routine operation at every camera service

But at what cost? I mean, if it's used stuff, it surely will be paid service.

As for fast shutter speeds - like 90% of time I rarely goes above 1/300, once or twice went above 1/500. So it would be less of a problem?

>>3856980

This one have listed 150k according to what I found so its already 50k past that. So I guess I could expect it to fail soon?
>>
>>3857099
Who cares? The body is the least of your costs in photography.
>>
>>3856559
I use a Panasonic Lumix ZS100 and I really like it. It's a step above a point & shoot, has a 1 inch sensor. Takes really good photos and has decent zoom. Sturdy metal body and has full manual controls. Was about $700 at launch in 2016 but it's available new for $400 now.
>>
>>3856559
Get a MFT camera, maybe Olympus OM-D E-M10 II or Lumix GX85
>>
>>3857268

Two or three times more than cost of used lenses - in my taste, its pretty significant. I cant afford throwing money on something that might turn out to be garbage.

>>
>>3857478
It's true though. You could say the same about any engineered product.
Race cars are a compromise, they're costly, loud, can seat only one guy, have terrible fuel economy, aren't even road legal because they don't even have the needed lights.
Flagship cameras can't be too expensive or they won't sell, as a result of being sub-10k products there's a number of features they don't have. The AF systems they use are also a compromise because of patents. The optical designs are compromises too because Sony wanted to make APS-C cameras and then when the time of full frame came they got either limited apertures or soft corners. And Nikon compromised portability with their designs. Higher res cameras compromise low light performance compared to the A7S series and GH5S series, I could go on.

I've got a Nikon Z5 with the 24-200 zoom lens.
It can barely autofocus indoors, even with good light.
I use single point AF and AF-S, and it starts vibrating for literally 5 seconds before the focus point turns green.
Then I take the picture and it's out of focus.
I tried turning on Low-Light AF, and it instead takes 10 seconds and tanks the EVF refresh rate.
Then I found that switching to pinpoint AF provides correct focus every time, but it's still slowish (about 2 seconds), and doesn't speed up any when in bright light/outdoors.
Is this normal behavior? Shouldn't pinpoint AF take longer, since it's providing the AF system with LESS information to work with? Is there something wrong with my phase-detect system?

Nikon is generally not a safe brand to buy into regardless.

As it is right now, Tamron and Sigma could give the deathblow to the Z-mount if they announce their full support for RF mount while ignoring the Z-mount, thus signalling to every photographer that the industry doesn't really believe Z has a future.
>>
>>3857790
Who the fuck cares stock runner, an Olympus and a Samsung work just as good today as they did when their companies were alive.
If you are thinking about reselling or playing biz games instead of taking photos then you are lost.
>>
>>3857790
anyone with expensive SIgma/Tamron F mount will probably just be using their FTZ adapter, (same with EF to RF) its' wise to rely on that a bit longer rather than release something too early and have it die in the ass, but ultimately not supporting Z mount would just be a lost opportunity for them which is a pretty stupid business move
>>
>>3857796
>but ultimately not supporting Z mount would just be a lost opportunity for them which is a pretty stupid business move
I'm not so sure about this. Sigma and their L-mount friends would be happy to see a competitor withdraw.
They actually hold a significant power to help RF step on Z-mount.

People will raise eyebrows if thos etwo companies support E and RF, but not Z.
Same way when they cut support for A-mount and K-mount a handful years back.

Question - when deciding between Nikon D750 and D810, which one is more reasonable choice and why?
>>
>>3857892
Are you sure Canonfags would laugh at Sigma if they released the DG DN lenses on RF?
I think a lot of RF people would be happy with another option.

It would be the Z customers who gets jealous, and some of them will regret buying into Z-mount seeing how low the support is.
>>
>>3857996
D810
>>
>>3858137

But why? From what I see, advantage of 810 is longer shutter life expectancy (200k vs 150k) and 36MP instead of 25MP but 750 have wireless connection, tilting screen and better low light performance.
>>

>>3857996
>which one is more reasonable choice
Two different cameras, i would choose a 810 because of its better build and i think it's a bit cheaper.
>wireless connection, tilting screen
One is for fags and the other depends on your style, if you like hip shooting a lot then i agree that's a big factor.
Low light is similar, if you downsize from 36 to 24 the results are pretty much the same and both have stale colours anyways compared to the old cameras, the D700/D3 or the Df/D4 are unmatched in that aspect. In terms of video the 810 cries in pain, the D750 would be the better option there.
I would choose neither for my specific style but in your case the sole fact that you considered wireless homosexuality and tilting screen as considerable perks makes me believe you would be better with a 750.
>>
>>3858184
I see they took a page out of their headphone department's book

They ran out of inventory of their old ass low resolution LCD panels, and the newers ones are likely cheaper.

Need some advice.

I got a trio of vintage lenses that are very nice, sharp (for a vintage lens) fast, and have "character" (radial bokeh, nervous bokeh on one of them, vignetting)

They are all 3 worth about 600usd, i was considering selling my X100 + lenses and buying one nice prime that makes use of my sensor and doesn't have that "character". I have seen what some people do with the lenses I got and i bought them for that reason, but sharpness and AF doesn't seem so bad.

Why?

I meant the limitations more so. I can't shoot because I'm ~300 miles away from my camera body.
>>
>>3858379
the only stuff this lens is not so good is action shots since the AF can be 'slow'. you can use it to everything tho
>>
>>3858375
Sure, there are quite a lot of sharp lenses. The E-mount has many of them 1st and 3rd party.

The A7R III only has decent AF, but the A7 III is faster and later models like the A7R IV or A9 II even faster / yet more reliable at tracking. Quite noticeable with just about any lens that works.

the 35 f0.95 is more appealing to me
imo if you're going to get MF it has to have some sort of neat hook
>>
>>3858716
That's a 7Artisans, and while I considered it the corners just seem really bad at the widest aperture, and more importantly the higher price is a bit to close to lenses with similar focal lengths that have autofocus, wihch is what I'd prefer over an f-stop.

I noticed the Korean lens maker is more logical and practical, while the Japanese lens makers are dogmatic traditionalists.

Canon has copied it. It's just controllable in camera, and not on the lens.
>>
>>3858753
That's different. They added an additional ring into the lens.

The Samyang one reuses the one ring they have. I guess this is the inferior to having multiple rings, but it saves cost.

does it still need a docking station for firmware upgrade?

K-3 MkIII hands down. Get a Tamron 70-200/2.8 IF Macro, it is screwdrive but focuses fast and the image is godly

Are you serious?
>>
>>3859399
Manual override is a different mode you can activate in mirrorless.
Your way of doing it is the inferior one that causes extra friction which results in more noise, more battery waste, and slower AF.

Why else did you think Canon copied Sony and moved towards focus by wire in RF?

Market pressure. Focus by wire is gay though.

It reduces friction and increase AF speed.

Holy shiet, the new Samyang lens is hacking the host camera.

They tweaked their custom button so it forces the camera into MF mode.
Then forces the focus to infinity for astro photography.
And there is a red LED that turns green when that happens.
>Sony isn't innovating its features enough
>Samyang takes matters into their own hand
>>
>>3859692
I don't se anything different here, you could always push a button or switch on a lens to switch it into MF mode and the body switched as well, the rest is just automation

I got my first ever focus by wire lens a year ago and i honestly dont want to go back to shitty gritty ultrasonic lenses and plastic fantastic focus motor disconnect lenses

Focus by wire feels as nice and is as accurate as a well fitted and greased vintage manual focus lens but you also get seamless AF, literally no reason to avoid them
>>
>>3859740
It's an automation that isn't normaly supported by the camera bodies.
>>
>>3859840
>literally no reason to avoid them
One reason: you can't manually focus by feel. If you're shooting street, for instance, being able to pre-focus to a given range so you can shoot from the hip when a good subject walks into that range is invaluable.

That being said, a huge percentage of autofocus lenses don't support that in any meaningful way either, so you're really better off adapting on a manual focus lens if you want to do that. I agree that there's not any particularly meaningful difference between an AF lens with mechanical focus but no distance/DoF scale and a focus-by-wire lens.
>>
>>3859840
hey profane
>>
>>3859806
no I guess not haha, I'll just stick to the a7ii
>>
>>3858765
meanwhile the chinks just slap a usb port on the mount, defying both
>>
>>3859941
Once the lens switched into MF the body doesn't care what it does and how it focuses
>>
>>3859992
That's in the past, doesn't apply to focus by wire.

The body can opt to make the focusing linear, or it could make the focusing accelerate.
They can even adjust the rotation sensitivity of the focus ring.
>>
>>3859990
You are referring to Viltrox?

I don't think they have done anything drastic with the Focus rings, they are not really at the stage there they can think of lens features yet, they are still in the learning phase of making better optics.
>>
Are there any black and white sensors that arent stupidly overpriced (like that leica model)?
>>
>>3860199
Nah, and there is probably no point. Even if you have more common color sensors, the pixels involved DO take brightness levels. You can turn that into B&W just fine.
>>
>>3860199
B/W images are actually better with colour sensor, because they can correct your lens' chromatic abberation before they convert to black and white.
>>
>>3860203
>Even if you have more common color sensors, the pixels involved DO take brightness levels. You can turn that into B&W just fine.
I know the science behind light levels, but i forget what specifically makes bw sensors better
>>3860204
interesting, i use a filter anyway so its not really an issue for me
>>
>>3860206
Filters don't affect CA created by the lens..

>forget what specifically makes bw sensors better
Probably because they have no bayer moire effect.
And maybe less light loss to the colour filters.
>>
>>3860207
>Filters don't affect CA created by the lens..
red light filter will wont it?
i knew it was something related to the subpixels, ty for the primer
>>
>>3860210
If you filter off reds, then blues and greens can still need correction.
>>
>>3860212
blue-green CA is less noticable than blue-red anyway
>>
>>3860206
>I know the science behind light levels, but i forget what specifically makes bw sensors better
Nothing actually relevant. Yes, you could avoid the color filters (+.3 EV or something) AND avoid storing color information in files (with some specialized RAW format that might certainly be smaller).

But this is virtually irrelevant because in the end the color sensors and cameras got far more work put into them and will have better sensors and camera computers. Because they actually sell well.

why is every ricoh GR digital (the old one with a 10MP CCD sensor) so expensive? they're really overpriced compared to compact cameras with almost identical technical specs like the canon S90. is it the terry tax or do they get confused with the new APS-C GR?

Sony can take their lens pricing and cram it waaaaay up their ass. Thank god for the sigma mc-11 adapter and also third party lens manufacturers.
>>
>>3860582
Tamron is the only manufacturer who offers good quality control at low pricing.

All the others fall into two categories.
-Expensive lenses that afhere to the MTF due to strict quality control
-Cheap lenses with fake MTFs due to no quality control

The Korean and Chinese lenses fall into the latter.

It may sound crazy but Sigma's lenses actually have better autofocus performance on the Sonys than on Sigma's own cameras.

what are some camera with dedicated wheels for

Modern cameras are ISO invariant. What you should do with such cameras is simply leaving them on auto for the best results.

I know
I like shooting manual.. and I was under the impression expensive camera is supposed give me more control
>>
>>3860968
my now 11 year old entry level nikon has a wheel that is set to shutter speed by default, then a button that I hold to modify it to aperture, and another button that does ISO, as well as a third button for white balance I dont use too much

just so you dont have to stare at the screen like a monkey everytime you want to change things

Auto-ISO enhances Manual mode and reduces your adjustments to 2 things.
Shutter Speed and Aperture.

ISO isn't a creative adjustment anyway. So the other poster is just stuck inside an old paradigm.

In modern ISO invariant cameras, you only have to concern yourself with the real settings that matter.
And ISO isn't one of them.

Thanks my dude. EF-M indeed
All the AF lenses with this focal length are 250-350 euros, and that's the affordable ones, and no used ones at all. I figure 60 euros is fair enough to tide me over, or maybe I won't need more.
