gear thread is always biggest cancer central of this entire board

why do you keep making new ones?

If gear threads were banned on /p/, then this board would be slower than /3/... and that's actually a good thing.

Gear threads are containment threads. If there is none, everyone makes a new thread for every stupid gear related bullshit and the board suffers.
With having /gear/ the photo threads have a good chance to stay on the board longer.
Still we have shitflingers and their snoy x fiji cancerthreads but without /gear/ it becomes a lot worse.

I've been posting on /p/ since 2011 or so, and gear threads have always been all over the catalog, despite these "gear general" threads. The general is just for minor questions and fleeting discussion that doesn't need its own thread. Ultimately, /p/ is a gear board.

So I'm a complete cam noob here is what i want to do:

I want to make videos and upload them on youtube, also i want to make photos of nature, but the main focus is on making movies. I want good quality, don't need 4k but 1440p would be nice

Should i get a camcorder or a normal camera and if yes what kind of? Shouldn't be more than 500 bucks

I can get a Panasonic S5 with 20-60 kit lens and 50mm F1.8 prime for $1350, should I do it? I'm doing hybrid; I mostly like to film so having log is pretty important but I also like that it's a fully capable stills camera for stuff like astrophotography and whatnot. I know neither lens that's included is particularly amazing and correct me if I'm wrong but neither take advantage of dual ibis? I guess for video the prime is alright. Thoughts?

ASML has lowered the pricing of their DUB lithography machines.

This is a reaction to the newly developed lithography machines in China. Where Canon and Nikon surrendered and gave up, the Chinese are now challenging the European monopoly.
This price war means it will be cheaper for Sony and Canon to expand their sensor factories in the future = cheaper sensors and less shortages.

im thinking of selling the zs25 and eos 650, waiting a little bit and getting a ricoh gr iii as my only camera. bigger sensor, raw support and it can fit in my pocket. is there other stuff i should be looking at instead?
>>
Any opinions on Canon EF(S) STM lenses? Are they reliable enough or should I stick with the non STM version? Reason I ask is because I got scammed and received a broken one (won't focus properly, it makes clicking noises, doesn't show any sign of being dropped as far as I can see). Can't get it new around here but plenty of used ones. I just want it to be as reliable as my kit lens.
>>
>>3981184
That's unusual, in my experience. I own half a dozen of them and have never had an issue with one. If your kit lens isn't the STM, you should get one of those too. It's significantly better in STM trim.

I've bought and sold all my lenses used and never come across a bad copy or a hiccup of any kind with them.
>>
>>3981191
Gotcha. I managed to find a new one, it's just $30 more than an used one.

Probably, I think they will probably keep 1 model around for another decade or so like they did with the F6.

Are any of the Leica l mount lenses worth sinking so much into compared to the sigma offerings?

Last flagship DSLR. Most people are misquoting Canon (chopping off the first half of the quote). That said, I don't expect to see new 5Ds or 7Ds either. Maybe new Rebels or even an updated 90D.

Sucks because OVF is still superior to EVF.

What are you shooting? S5 way better low light and faster continuous shoot. Also the z5 isn't that great for video. Plus the screen don't swivel. I have never used a z5 however and I am speaking from spec sheets.

Happy New Year /p/ just a quick question. Which printer would you guys suggest for printing digital photos from home, in my case I would be printing portraits which a friend is paying me to take.

What I personally shoot is night photos of streets and buildings. So I suppose a printer that's good with high res dark photography for my own use. (I use 25mp and 50pm sensors)

Can someone help me find a good camera bag? I usually just carry around the body and a zoom lens + 1 prime (50mm) so nothing majorly big. He k I'd be fine without the zoom I think. The thing is I don't want it to look like the dorky stuff you usually see fat old guys using (ultra padded puffy designs straight out of 2009). I had a look at Gucci's "camerabags" but I honestly don't get why they call them suchs because they couldn't hold a prime ever.
I'm thinking something that looks netstalker/deebweb/ cyber core
>>
>>3982107
It has the 6DII sensor, so it is the single worst full frame camera for low light that is currently being made. Keep your 5DIII (or step up to the EOS R or R6, both of which are great low light performers).
>>
>>3982120
you have to do a lot of printing for a home printer to be worth it. The printer itself isn't even the problem, it's that the printer needs to constantly bleed ink to not clog. when you print constantly (every day or week) that ink is giving you value. If you don't, and only print every month or so, it's really not.
>>
>>3982124
ah sorry, my mistake for being an idiot. Happy new year, but I would say something to travel with and maybe more outdoor things? Perhaps an "all around" camera is best. Hopefully that makes more sense
>>
>>3982145
So travel photos? Pretty much anything made in the past 5 years is fine. Is there a particular subject you're excited about? Like architecturual photography, portraits of people afar, etc?

Is this a good deal?
I wanna get either a 50mm or a 35mm for my A7II.

>>
>>3982209
Yes. They are usually priced €170-200.
The crossed out €330 is marketing fluff, they haven't sold for that price in years.

Amazon.nl has it even cheaper currently, but I don't know if it will ship to Spain (and how much shipping will be).

>>3982142
Not the person you're replying to, but that's good to know. Do you have a photo printer or otherwise have any idea of how many prints you can get out of a set of ink cartridges, assuming you are maintaining them with like 1 or 2 random prints per week, or whatever would be recommended?
>>
Do you own multiple lenses in the same focal length? Like, multiple 50mm primes because you like the bokeh of one when wide open but like the sharpness of the other when stopped down?
>>
>>3982250
Technically, I've got my Helios but I don't use it much. Then I've got my Panasonic 50mm f1.8 which is a great prime and simply way sharper. Overlaps with my zoom as well.

I'm poor, broke as hell. I've been saving for 7+ years and still haven't made 10k.

I don't take a lot of pics, but when i do i have several copies of the same thing that i try to make look as good as possible, and my edit skills are usually when i go to snapseed/google photo/ some other basic app and go to the enhance button.

I've been thinking of replacing my samsung s21/pixel 6 with a real camera, hopefully made for beginners.
First i have to figure out price range.
I see some good ones at 800$, 1k, and couple at 1,500.
I'm thinking close to 1k.
What are good options?
How is something like Panasonic - Lumix G9? Anything better for a similar price?
I don't think i want to get too much into advanced photo stuff, I just want semi pro pics better then phone without too much work.
>>

What do you think pros that make money do with their money dumbass? You are retarded.
>>
>>3982289
>buys top of the line smartphones
>wonders why he can't save money

Anyways, even $800 is way too much for your current skill level. Buy a Canon Rebel, like a T6 used or T8i new if you must have video and invest in EF (not EFS) lenses, that way you can repalce the body with a full frame one while keeping the lenses. You will not outgrow your first DSLR in less than a year.
>>
>>3982209
No, it's not a good deal. Look at used market. You should be able to get the Samyang 45mm F/1.8 for around 220 euro or less, and while I hate this lens, it's objectively better than the Sony. Keep in mind that while you'll get AF, it will feel like SHIT compared to nice vintage manual fifties since it's basically all plastic. But to get anything better you need to spend 2-3 times more.
>>
>>3982250
Closest I have right now is 50mm vintage and 45mm AF modern lens. But there's nothing wrong with in principle, though I'd probably go for
>fast but heavy and cumbersome lens
>slower but nice and compact
it's just that with the stuff I have right now there isn't really anything that different in size where it would make sense.

This photo was taken on a $200 phone. $300 isn't much and I have no solid recommendations. Possibly second hand mft (em10 most likely) might be the way to go for that price but idk what lens you'd get. I'd partially agree with the other anon but macros more of a technical field where gear influences shot quality a lot more. Maybe a cheap system that has pixel shift could boost your iq on the cheap.

Does anybody here use a 3d printer for camera accessories? Which would you recommend? One at least as good to print out working lens adapters.
>>
>>3982590
Do you mean like a m42 to e mount style adapter? Honestly there's so much that can fail with it that I simply wouldnt trust a 3d printed part, let alone a injection moulded piece made of plastic.
>>
>>3982633
Yeah, that's exactly what I mean. I've heard lots of people doing it and the files are regularly available for download. I already own 3 adapters, m39, m42 and M so I should be covered for the timebeing. Just seems that if I come across some vintage lens I'd rather not keep buying more adapters and just print one out at home instead of waiting for shipping. Plus I can make other accessories like a grip or hot shoe mounts or something, who knows.
>>
>>3982763
Maybe I'm missing something but I wouldn't think the thread would hold up or be of sufficient resolution. The E end would work but I'd be paranoid about a piece snapping or plastic shavings getting on my sensor. Again, while petg is strong I don't think its a good idea to cheap out on these sort of adapters, especially when good quality ones (IE kfconcept) are moderately cheap. I think the only camera accessory I've printed is a SD card case.
Also you'd be making a cold shoe mount, not a hot shoe.

Unrelated to 3d, but I now want to make a form fitted handle for my camera out of wood.
>>
>>3982763

I've printed an F to EF mount adapter successfully, and a couple CS mount adapters for board cameras (M12) on my Anycubic Mega S. It's also handy for lens hoods and caps. I'm also experimenting with a printed grip for my EOS M200 so I can hold it with my man hands.

You'll find that precision matters a great deal, and it's really difficult to get accurately printed threads with an FDM printer. If you can't get accurate threads, you won't get accurately square mounting of your adapted lens, and you'll have image quality issues. You can more easily get accurate thread prints with MSLA printers, but they don't really like printing 100% opaque materials, so...

The most successful adapter print for me was the F to EF. I can't use it with anything even slightly heavy though, or I risk layer adhesion failure causing my lens to fall right off the camera. I replaced it with a $10 metal adapter for peace of mind.

tl:dr - 3D printing for photo stuff is best limited to things like grips and caps. I have three printers, and have been into that hobby longer than photo.

Thanks for letting me know fellas, I was actually curious about plastic shavings or the hold of 3d printed gear for lenses. That's the reason I needed to know if there was a specific range of printer I should look into. I'll stick to metal adapters for the piece of mind.

Bro I have no idea what you're talking about.
>>
>>3982885
It means Sony played it the smartest.

They took a mild abberation such as focus breathing and made it 0 priority so they could benefit other lens aspect with ease.

They they took the camera body and invented in-camera correction for focus breathing.
>>
>>3982888
That's cool, but does that mean the others won't be able to catch up?
>>
>>3982889
Doesn't mean that.

But those lenses are pretty much set in stone now. So even if the Nikon implemented software focus breathing correction, tit would still suffer from being huge.

Anyone switch from Panasonic to Olympus? I fairly recently bought a used GX85 for a cheap travel camera and I like the form factor but the EVF is deal-breakingly bad. I've heard Oly is superior in that regard, so I'm considering reselling the body and getting an E-M5 II. Is there a meaningful improvement here?
>>
>>3983097
I switched the other way but to Pana ff. The evf on my Olympus em10 and the em1x I've used are alright.
>>
Proper ultra super macro for l mount? I mean a proper, dedicated macro with a really good magnification factor. I'd prefer to use a native mount but I understand If its not.
>>
>>3983108
The Laowa 100mm X2 macro is humiliating the Canon team all over the place.
Completely reduces colour fringing to practically nothing while the Canon team is unable to deal with the green colour fringing which cripples the sharpness of the image.

That beating was pretty brutal, he even pre-dabbed on the Canon fanboys by pointing out the slow AF seeking was in still image mode because he anticipated they would claim it was AF under video mode.

There were some controversies with the Sony's focus breathing, but it became irrelecant as soon as the cameras became able to correct it during recording.
>>
>>3983111
it also BTFO nikon macro and sigma macro and sony macro
>>
>>3983111
Not him but wouldn't you want af on a macro so you can do focus stacking?
>>
>>3983111
It is longitudinal aberration, it reduces to zero at the focal plane. How stupid are you, china dog?
>>
>>3983122
AF is completely baffled by macro. Ideally, you rack focus by moving the camera on a macro rail. I think only a few cameras are capable of automatic focus stacking that (sort of) works at macro distances.
>>
>>3983125
>it reduces to zero
Incorrect. It approaches 0, which is different. And so it will still affect part of your focus plane, hence the softer appearance of the focused subject.

Laowa is probably the best manual lens producer these days, regardless of the system. I previously used the 85 mm Meike macro for X mount before buying the native Fuji 80 mm but despite the latter's incredible IQ, I still consider getting the Laowa as well as a secondary

Venus Optics/Laowa has similar quality control standards as most Japanese companies producing in China, plus a corporate culture that more closely follows that of Korean/Japanese firms than that of sweatshops

It seems that after Ken Rockwell highlighted the Leica SF 24D it has become impossible to attain. I didn't want to concede but I must now ask if there's a flash comparable to this that "just works" on any Leica at such a compact form factor. I know the SF 20 is also an option, but at the price point I'd rather keep scrounging around for the 24D.

A friend of mine wants to get into photography but doesn't like the idea of changing lenses. She's out in nature a lot and would like to shoot everything from landscapes to macro to bigger wildlife (say, sheep on a pasture). She's asked me if I had any recommendations and initially said a bridge cam might be a good option for her.

On second thought, though, I think it's terrible value for money and way too clunky for what it delivers. An MFT + something like the the Olympus 12-200 mm zoom would make much more sense for her (but of course also cost more). Any other option/setup I should look into?

Cool pics p1000 is the same price as that lens and does 24-3000 (Vs 24-400 on that Olympus). If she's truly shooting animals afar why wouldn't you go for the 3k zoom? Even on the max zoom it's still somewhat legible although my time with the camera was limited.

I think she's genrally most interested in flowers and flower macros but also everything else outdoors. Supertele is not really the issue for her I think; she would be more than happy with a 150 mm FFE maximum reach. My consideration is rather which option would give her the most enjoyable photography experience and the best SOOC pics.

Soup, gearfags?
I'm looking to upgrade my old t7i body. I won't say I've outgrown the body in terms of skill just yet, it takes fine pictures, but there are some features I really want that unfortunately it just doesn't have.

Features I want:
>EF-S lens ecosystem
Quality adapters are acceptable, and if I can use adapters and move to a better/more modern lens ecosystem, I wouldn't be mad about it
>"clean" hdmi out while using AF
T7I is only clean if I turn af off
>focus microadjustment
I have a Sigma 50mm f1.4 non art that's ever so slightly front focused that I can't really use
>good burst capability
I almost always keep my camera in burst mode
>120fps+ 1080p video
Obvious reasons
>touchscreen rear panel
It's just fkn easier in some cases, especially for quick af selection
>improved ISO performance
More of a want than a need

I'm familiar with Canon, and considering the glass available, I don't see much reason to switch. I'm also curious about mirrorless, especially with everyone discontinuing their DSLR lineups. My budget is, admittedly, kind of limited, so I want to find a decent body under $1k, but if there's something significantly better for a few hundred more used or new, I wouldn't mind saving.

Currently I'm looking at the 90d and the EOS RP, the latter being a full frame mirrorless, with good adapters, but the former offering better hardware in aps-c and is more of a direct upgrade, though, after that there isn't much of an upgrade path.

My current glass lineup is
>Tamron a16af 17-50mm xr di-ii f2.8
Workhorse beater lens
>Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM
Great portrait lens, aside from the af problem
>Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Art DC HSM
This one I know for sure doesn't fill the entire frame on full frame bodies, though I also know it crops extremely well, and is by far my favorite lens
>Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto
No IS but I'm looking to upgrade later on


Thoughts?

are cheap lens filters massively detrimental? i just want to get a few nd, and clear filters. was looking and kf concept, but ive heard even hoya filters dont cut it when it comes to keeping optics clear and i should go for some $200 filter instead. most of my lenses are 67mm

>>
>>3984511
Detrimental in sense youmay be able to see the difference if you compare a pair of photos taken with and without filter, but can not tell from single photo unless the filter is very shit indeed. Cheap nd is likely to have a color cast and cheap chink multicoated is more suspect to flares than expensive multicoted from better brand.
>>
>>3984726
I myself use cheap multicoated filter as a lens cap and take the filter off when shooting on tripod. (Handheld, even with stabilization is much worse for image quality than cheap filter.)
>>
>>3984506
The RP will force you to buy all new lenses, and the burst speed is complete garbage. The sensor is also not that great. Basically, it's good for the depth-of-field aspect of full frame, and it's good for the usual benefits of mirrorless, but it's severely lacking as a modern Canon mirrorless camera. The M6II is a better camera, with the caveat that it's APSC.

I'm not into video shit, but the 90D seems like it would fit you the best. It has the latest generation dual pixel AF, so you can just run it in live view all the time and it would be the same experience as the M6II with very fast autofocus, but you would also have the option to use it as a DSLR.

Depending on your budget and how willing you are to sell lenses, you might consider selling all the lenses you have to raise money for an R6 and the RF lenses you need, but I'm pretty sure that's not what you're looking to spend. Run the numbers, at least. The 90D is expensive if you buy it new.
>>
>>3984743
Yeah I'm pretty much torn between the 90d and m6 mkii. They both have the features I need, and they basically have the same exact internals, except a much longer battery life on the 90d, but the big difference is price and accessories needed.

On one hand, the 90d is pretty much good to go out of the box, but it costs roughly between $800-$1k used with 800 being pretty rare, and I'll need new batteries and a continuous power supply (which isn't bad) but desu I could probably get away with 1 battery for a couple weeks.

On the other, the m6 mkii uses the same batteries as my T7i, but needs an adapter, and a viewfinder attachment for the hotshoe, should I want to use one (I do like having it sometimes). The Canon adapter is $200, but there are cheaper ones closer to $50-100, and the EVF is another $200-250. Amazon sells the m6 with a Viltrox adapter in a package deal for $850, and I've seen just the bodies used for as low as $600, though that's also rare.

Idk man. If I forgo the evf for now, the m6 is easier to find a better deal on, but I'm pretty much set with the 90d, though I may end up waiting and waiting to find one at a low enough price to pull the trigger
>>
>>3984763
>M6II
-small battery which doesn't last that long, and it will drain fast unless you are constantly switching the camera off in between shooting
-EVF is pretty average; the field of view feels small and low res compared to my R6
-can not use accessory EVF and accessory flash simultaneously, since there's only one hot shoe
-the back screen flips *up* so you have to remove the EVF or whatever is mounted in the hot shoe to use it for "selfie mode" (the 90D has a side-flipping, reversible screen)
-you do get more external controls than any other EOS M camera (including an AF-On button!), but you're still lacking some of the standard DSLR amenities, like top LCD display, AF joystick, and a few extra buttons
-small ergos...better than other EOS M cameras, but doesn't hold a candle to a DSLR (or EOS R)

+smaller camera system overall
+access to EF-M lenses (some are really good, others are average, but all are very compact, which is a big plus to a lot of people)

It's been a while since I sold mine, but I also remember that Canon gimped the shutter in some way...like it had a relatively small buffer or there was no option for a silent shutter. Look those things up because I'm going from memory.

>90D
-you can make use of the same, latest generation dual pixel, on-sensor AF that the M6II has, but you have to use the back screen as there is no option for EVF (even as an accessory for the hot shoe)
-DSLR autofocus is very good (also latest generation), but lacks the precision and ease to track objects from sensor edge to edge, so you may be shooting a lot in live view

+real ergos
+real battery capacity
+option to use an optical viewfinder, which is always fun to use
+lots of familiar external controls, top LCD
+it's designed to be a semi-pro/prothusuast camera, whereas all the EOS M cameras are designed as consumer-oriented, so you get 1/8000 sec max shutter speed and minimal gimping to the specs
+all the ports and hot shoes you need
+weather sealing

Not a specific gear question but more generic one - for you who have been buying gear longer than me, how long does it usually take for a new lens to start commonly showing up on the used market? I'd like to try and catch at least 20% discount on a new lens, and I wonder if I'll be able to do it within a year.
>>
>>3984770
>how long does it usually take for a new lens to start commonly showing up on the used market?
1-2 days from release. There's always going to be someone who doesn't like what he bought or someone who bought a lens to review for his youtube channel and doesn't actually want to keep the lens.

However, 20% discounts are dependent on the market. RF lenses are holding their value well because supply has been scarce and quality has been high. I see used prices sometimes reflecting manufacturing quality if consumers are worried about sample variation or whether the lens is being sold because it's a lemon.

Just got this and I think I’m in love. The menus are fucking massive but it has good colour control and you can remember the zoom so I just set it to 50mm and the zoom works in steps down to 35, 28, etc. don’t know why I didn’t swallow the compact zoom camera earlier.
The only thing I’ll struggle with is the delay from switching it on to taking a shot.
This is the mark 1 btw.

Happy with the Canon but it's big and lunky and is an annoyance to take out of the bag everytime i want to shoot something I see, otherwise I have to have it in my hand all the time during my travels and i wanna be comfy when i walk around.

Optical viewfinder, works without wasting battery, superior resolution, real through the lens experience without relying on electronics redrawing the image
Also soon to be monochrome and manual focus options
>>
>>3985897
If it was 5 years ago you'd have a valid point. The responsiveness and resolution of todays EVFs make them indistinguishable from optical.

You know what else EVFs are actually better at? You can take pictures without losing the image / no interruptions.

>Batteries
Even if new elements use more battery, batteries are getting more advanced, and components more efficient. Show me that the battery life has been decreasing and you can have that half a point.

I actually have bad eyesight and OVFs make it shitty to shoot for this reason. I suppose if you're still shooting on DSLRs your true reasoning is financial, and because of this you've likely never looked through a modern high end EVF. Go to B&H or whatever's closest to you and give some cameras a try, you'll be surprised with what you see.

>If it was 5 years ago you'd have a valid point. The responsiveness and resolution of todays EVFs make them indistinguishable from optical.
I'll admit I haven't tried the R3 or A1 EVF. The EVFs I have tried, including A9 I/II bodies?
>still lag during continuous shooting

LOL what are you talking about? What service? Do you think you need to change the mirror oil filter? Adjust a mirror timing belt? There is no mirror service every 50k clicks.

>extra weight and space,
Overall kit size/weight is mostly determined by format and lenses. Shaving a few ounces or mm at the body really doesn't make that much difference. I'll concede that compact APS-C and mft systems couldn't exist with a mirror. Like, say, an EOS M + 22mm. But a Sony A7 or Canon R6 with pro FF glass is about as large as any DSLR with similar pro FF glass.

I used to have a K-5 IIs, which took great photos and even weathered several storms while I was hiking. I got it fully wet many times and it survived just fine. The colors never impressed me, but the fact that I could have it on my person while hiking meant getting more photos than a non-weather-sealed camera. I upgraded it to a K-3, and all the magic was gone. I'm not sure if it was because it was a higher resolution sensor and more susceptible to showing motion blur, or if the IBIS unit was in fact defective, or if the meter was defective and it just wasn't capable of metering a fast enough shutter speed in aperture priority mode, but I got so many blurred photos with that camera, it's not even funny.

I did the same but from upgrading from K-3 to K-1.
I love shooting with my K-3 but with the K-1 while the colors are magical I just don't enjoy it as much, it's like the magic has gone.
Went back to my K-3 and the magic is back. I suspect it is not in the unit itself, it is about "upgrading" while it is unnecessary. In other words it's in your head.

What's is the difference between the $35 Hoya filter (HOYA UX II UV Filter), the 135$ Hoya (Hoya 67mm HD MkII UV Filter) say a similar price of "clear Hoya filter) and a sigma $169 (Sigma WR 67mm Ceramic Protect or)?

>>
>>3986485
the nice filters will a.) be something close to optically flat, so they rob less sharpness, and b.) will be multicoated, so that they don't flare quite as much or lose as much contrast. That said you almost certainly don't need a "protection" filter on your lens unless you expect to have mud thrown in your face.

Cheaper filters have worse glass, worse coatings, and often have a color cast. I've had some k+f filters that are fine, but their cheaper ones have a noticeable green cast to them. There used to be this chinesium brand called Gobe that made okay filters, but they've since changed their name and doubled their prices for no obvious reason. B+W are supposed to be one of the best. Everyone and their mom used Hoya back in the SLR days, so they're probably a good bet.

Canon R6 and a 24-70mm but it would have to be adapted. But idk I'm sure it's fine but something rubs me wrong about buying a new system just to use old glass still

Whatever I pick is gonna be used for mostly portrait, wildlife photos when I get a capable lens, outdoor stuff in general, and like 15% video. I'm kind of sad that snoy can't seem to do 20fps eshutter while Canon can without the massive caveats that Sony imposes while still just giving me 10-12fps

:-/ Rolling shutter with the A7III in continuous stabilized silent shooting is too much if you as the photographer move even only strolling. Canon R6/R5 are said and specified to be better in this regard, I hoped the A7IV would close up towards the A9 and hence shit on Canon, no?

Can someone tell me why this image looks so odd? It seems blurry in parts and sharpish in others...

>Canon R6 and a 24-70mm but it would have to be adapted. But idk I'm sure it's fine but something rubs me wrong about buying a new system just to use old glass still
The EF mark II is equal to the RF version in every respect except it doesn't have OIS. Since the R6 has IBIS that's not a big deal. I know people get mentally stuck on "muh adapter" but you're going to want access to the massive EF library any way. And for video you can get an adapter that takes filters at the back of the lens. One set of filters to rule them all.

The Tamron EF 24-70 G2 is cheaper, optically pretty close to the Canon lenses, and it has OIS. When I overhauled my kit I went with the EF mark II but I almost went with the Tamron. It is close.

If you do go R6: for wildlife the EF 100-400 II is fucking awesome. The RF version gives you another 100mm but it gets a bit softer by 500mm and you typically crop that small amount any way.
>>
>>3986641
>Tamron EF 24-70 G2
This is optically identical to the G1 and not comparable to the Canon EF 24-70 II, which is pretty dope wide open even compared to Nikon and Sony. The Tamron except for the wide end requires f/4 to counter a significant drop in the center and more so off-center.
At the time, it was said that Canon deliberately omitted image stabilization on this lens in order to achieve a higher resolution. For a fact, on the slr bayonets, the lens trumps many of the prime lenses of the covered focal range.
>>
>>3986628
any drop big enough to dent the filter ring is big enough to knock lens elements out of alignment. Lensrentals did a blog post about this, if I recall correctly.

>>3986674
Well it worked fine afterwards.

Yeah been told the same thing about the view finder i wanted to get a g1x mini for the longest but i heard the glass was meh and i feel like the evf would be as uncomfortable as the one on my g5x

>Still though i wish they would have kept the blocky aesthetic
>>
>>3986728
G1x mkii* not mini
>>
>>3986663
>This is optically identical to the G1
Dustin Abbott's review showed that the G2 is improved over the G1. From what Tamron told him, the overall optical formula is the same (or very similar), but the individual elements are improved (materials/manufacturing). The EF mark II is definitely the better lens optically, and it's the one I went with. I would make the same choice again, I love my 24-70 II. But his review made me think about it. His G2 copies were not THAT far behind the EF mark II, and OIS is very useful on a DSLR.

That said, the copies TDP tested seemed further behind, and they differed with each other. So copy variation seems to be an issue with this particular Tamron lens. You're pretty much guaranteed to get a lens you love with the EF mark II. With the Tamron you might have to exchange it for a better copy.

Impacts can smash right through a front filter. What they really protect you from is minor scratches. Shoot at the beach or in windy deserts enough and you will appreciate a UV filter.

Some lenses need a UV filter to complete weather sealing. Canon is famous for this on their UWA zooms.
>>
>>3986748
This. Filter's won't protect you from any impact of note, but they do make it so that you can be a degenerate and wipe your lenses off with shit like shirts and napkins laying around without potentially scratching your front elements.
>>
>>3986674
Well if lens rentals did a blog post it must be fact.
Holy fuck the scientific literacy of this board is so low, no wonder every second thread isn't even about photography
>>
>>3986772
well they've taken apart lenses and put them on an optical test bench and to a first approximation nobody here has. So yes, I'd trust them over you.
>>
>>3986772
>>3986777
Lens Rentals has a point that filters don't offer much impact resistance. But there are so many variables in an impact that it's impossible to claim they offer none what so ever. Someone, some where, has had their lens saved from an impact by a filter. Probably wasn't a major impact, but still.

Again, the main benefit is minor/moderate scratch resistance and complete weather sealing on some lenses. Impact resistance? Meh...maybe, but don't count on it.

Help me decide this
I've been using vintage lenses on my sony A7II for a few years now. I wanna switch to newer optics though.

I'm looking at 2 local listings on OLX:
400 euros - Sigma 50mm 1.4 for Nikon F (I would adapt this one as I don't care much about autofocus)
550 euros - Sony Zeiss 55mm 1.8 for Sony FE
500 euros - Sigma 50mm 1.4 for Sony FE

From watching reviews the 55mm is definately sharper than the sigma lens. But if I got the Nikon Sigma I could use it on my nikon film cameras which would be nice.
Does anyone have any experience adapting this lens to sony?
>>
>>3986806
Sony lenses are some of the best in the industry. Nakanishi, kuroda, and masuda pioneered the development of extreme aspherical lens design and continue to innovate within the lens space. G series are optically superior to Zeiss lenses. We only need to look to sigmas historical lenses to know we can discount their offerings without further investigation. If you can't afford the f1.2 50mm, the f2.5 is still going to beat everything on your list.

My budget is about 600 euros, so the 50mm 1.2 is out.
I'll check out the 2.5 as I never heard of that one. Though I feel that the 2.5 aperture may limit me in a few scenarios

I am new here, I hope this is the right thread.
My friend is asking me what camera should he buy. He's 60 years old and likes to take pictures of motorcycles and cars and such. He wants something that is very simple to use and has good autofocus and makes pictures fast. He hates it if he has to wait or if he later discovers pictures are not in focus (he doesn't check them after taking them). I am looking at pont-and-shoot cameras, but there is still too many to choose from.
- simple to use - boomer friendly
- takes pictures fast and in focus
- compact
- some optical zoom

In store they are trying to sell him canon G1 X Mark III or sony RX100 VA. He's asking me to help him as obviously I am supposed to know this thing, because I am young. Any help appreciated.

Pic related. taken with phone. It's not sharp enough.

Get him an iPhone desu. Easiest, most consistent shooting experience there is. Unless he's a bokehfag of course.
>>
>>3986874
That's not gonna work. He's still using a flip phone from like 2005. Has full box of the same "new" unused ones, that will last him a lifetime.
He doesn't like touch screens, prefers physical buttons. I should have mentioned that.
>>
>>3986869
G1 X Mark III is a damn good choice. If you think he will ever want to swap on a different lens, an M50 with the 15-45 kit is pretty much the same thing except a slightly slower lens.
>>
>>3986869
>>3986919
LX100 or the 2nd one is also great. And has a VF if he's into that.
>>
>>3986869
For autofocus the EOS R5, EOS R6 and Fuji XT4 are good choices. Apparently the olympus cameras have really good autofocus but I've never managed to get a good autofocus out of it.

If it outputs video, it's going to be from a standard RCA cable.

I think I'll just buy a a7iii + new tamron 35-150mm

I'm not buying the R because photoman says your monitor can't seen it probably anyway and I'm not doing prints.
>>
>>3987450
decent tripods start at 200 bucks (leofoto)

if you're buying below that, you might as well get hama trash for 19.99
>>
>>3987527
That's not true. The Q999H is just as good as the overpriced stuff.

The overpriced shit is just a welfare service for middlemen standing between the manufacturer and the costumer.
>>
>>3987462
Why would you need the R for prints? You think 24 MP isn't enough??
>>
>>3987462
Buy based on the system you want to be in, not based on an individual body. If you want to be in Sonyland the A73 is a great body.

>>3987571
The R does have slightly better stills IQ because of 30mp but nothing worth worrying about. 24mp is plenty for most subject/print size combos. If you need more than 24mp, you likely need to jump past 30mp to the 42-61mp FF sensors.

Not sure if correct board, I am newfag.
I would like to buy a camera and am looking for suggestions for under $500 (sweetspot 300-400 or under). Preferably new if I have solid options.

I plan to do macros, landscape, and human subjects. I'd like to be able to do nighttime with lights, and daytime like foliage and buildings, and stuff.
Just something fairly all around.
>>
>>3987611
My main question is would you like a viewfinder and how big are you willing to have your camera?
Check out the G7X, LX100 and RX100
>>
>>3987614
Yes I would like a viewfinder, and nothing massive but like the Canon EOS is a good size, not much more bigger than that. Slightly bigger is ok. I'd like to be able to throw it in a bag or something.
I will check those out, thank you

Yeah keep telling you that when the only reason Leofoto can undercut competition is because they can rely on forced labor

>>3987642
The 055 XPro is a very decent tripod but the Aluminium version starts at 150 bucks (new) without the head if I'm not mistaken and I don't think aluminium is worth it. So in any case, you seem to have made a very good deal.

Their carbon version is good but the heads suck ass. I'd rather get a used Sirui head for any travel tripod, much better value for money.

I have a cheap ~$60 tripod, and while the head is very versatile it's a bit bulky. Is it better to get a new tripod or just something like a new ball head? The whole thing is a bit heavy at just over 4lbs and in the long run I'm looking to get something lighter, but in the meantime is there a good ball head I can upgrade the top to at least?
>>
>>3989312
>Is it better to get a new tripod or just something like a new ball head?
What improvements are you even expecting?

Lighter weight isn't always a good thing. It also means less stable tripod.
>>
>>3989314
Lighter weight, with a hook then. I'm just looking for less to carry overall, as well as an easier to manage head.

Question,

I’ve been eyeing a Canon EF 80-200mm f/2.8 L USM that’s for sale for 500 euros second hand.

And I’m wondering if it’s worst the risk. It’s quite the old lens(1990s) but I do know that the IQ of it is superb.

I worry that the working bits have been worn out and will not last me more than a year.
>>
>>3989997
I wouldn't, not at that price. Way too old. You're paying extra because it's a popular lens. 500 euro is average or above average price for it so it's not like you're getting a deal.

Even if it's not worn out, it will have worse AF performance than modern lenses, and while I can't be arsed to look for tests now, I'd really make sure it actually competes with modern lenses in image quality, and it's not just good for its time.
>>
>>3990086
I already looked up its performance and based on a youtube vid, its IQ could handle a 40 MP camera. Only downside is chromatic aberation fully open.
>>
>>3990086
But yeah, you’re right. I’ll look into a more modern lens.
