I bet that Nikkor Focus ring feels pleasant to use.
The Sony 55mm also has a well dampened precision engineered feel to it.

It's one of the reasons why I can't stand lenses from Samyang and Tamron. Sigma is the exception to that rule.

I have that Sigma 24mm, it's good but the build quality almost goes too far, there's really no point in the hood being metal and machined to match, other than just being fancy.

Some Samyang's aren't bad, I have the older manual 135mm and while plastic it's very nice to use. I also have the newer 45mm and THAT is the definition of plastic fantastic, it feels super cheap and hollow, but does take good photos.
>>
>>4062363
>there's really no point in the hood being metal and machined to match, other than just being fancy.
It will make the reviewers praise the lens more. Doesn't matter if it's functionally inferior to rubber shock absorption.
They will praise the metal build, and that's exactly what the manufacturer wants.

The Focus ring does need to be metallic though. And it's not enough with that. It needs to be connected with some goo that dampens it and makes it smooth in usage.
>>
>>4062359
The lens is mint, and it is pleasant to use the focus ring. Ended up getting the lens free so its a win in my book.

Bit of a shame the NX system is 100% dead, samsung is at least capable of making competitive camera chips, since they have experience producing SoCs.
The NX mini system is 4000% dead, so is the Nikon 1 and even EOS M, this killed off compact mirrorless for good.

>Bit of a shame the NX system is 100% dead
It's because of the H.265 codec, unlike H.264, HEVC is proprietary and requires paying for a license to use it. Samsung didn't know this, sadly. They added HEVC support without paying for the license which essentially meant they were selling pirated software
>>
>>4062598
Pretty sure samsung should have the license, they've been making chips with hevc encoders & decoders for years.
Also AVC does require a license, it's not free. So is VVC.

Whats a budget starter telephoto with autofocus for F mount? I have an old Kiron 70-210mm which I like a lot but the lack of autofocus means I'm missing the sharpness of capturing moving objects because I cant focus in time.

I have a D7000 so DX is fine, but when I look up nikons 70-200 its almost 2 grand so there must be a better option
>>
>>4062630
Nikon has the 55-200, 55-300, and 70-300 as the budget telephoto options. They all come in a variety of models (VR, AF-S/P, etc).
Honestly, the 200-500 at $1300 is decent too if you want a lot more reach.
>>
>>4062641
Will i need a bipod to use these telephotos or can I walk around the city handheld in good lighting?
>>
>>4062679
In good lighting you should be fine. Consider that if you're doing something fast action (sports, birds flying, etc), you'll usually be at a high enough shutter speed to where VR isn't that helpful for the shot. VR can even just looking through the lens though, and of course is super helpful as your shutter speed gets lower. For those budget lenses I'd say it's usually worth the $50-100 premium.
The 200-500 is also handholdable, but definitely would want some support long term due to the weight.
>>
>>4062683
Thanks for the advice. I think i'll try the 55-300, it has VR and i could get it for under 200. It will help fill a gap in my lenses too, Right now I have a 12-24 wide angle, a 35 prime and 50 prime, getting a 55-300 would give me the upper range without having to always carry my 50 around.

Anyone have this lens? I'm having some weird issues with it. First off, when I screw it into the camera body (t3i) it seems like a really tight fit compared to any other lens/body combination I've used. I'm almost afraid I'll break my camera or the lens if I keep turning. Also, when I screw it all the way it, I don't it feel clicking to lock in place. My 50mm for example I can definitely feel the clicking. It seems locked in tight, I just don't feel it clicking. Other than that it seems to work fine. When I first got it, I had issues with the lens not being recognized by the camera, some anon suggested to tighten the screws and that seemed to fix it. Are all EFS 24mms like this or did I just get a dud?
>>
>>4062749
I own this lens and don't have these problems. I will say it feels a little tighter when screwing in than other ef lenses, but this is an EF-s lens so you should expect that. EF-S lenses have a deeper reaching mount, that's why EF-s lenses can't be used on ef cameras, just EF-s compatible cameras. However, it shouldn't feel like you're going to break anything when mounting so you probably have some sort of dud, or you're using an ef only camera and are fucking it up
>>
>>4062749
>>4062769
I just realized you said you were using a t3i so it's definitely just a dud
>>
>>4062749
You can probably fix it by replacing the bayonet. Get a JIST screwdriver set.

Bros my uncle wants to buy into the full frame meme, even though he absolutely does not need it. His last 5 cameras were: Nikon D3200, D3300, D3400, D3500, D7200. He has no idea what he's doing.
What's the best normie mirrorless camera I can recommend to him to keep him from spending his life savings on a sony a7number?
He won't buy any lenses ever, but insists that it has to have an interchangeable lens mount
>>
>>4062857
Is your uncle not an adult with a job? Let him blow his money on ff if it will make him happy. I know what these kinds of people are like and he will probably never be satisfied otherwise knowing he hasn't has the FF Experience(TM) and will stubbornly go and buy what he wants behind your back anyway. Maybe find a deal on an eos RP or something, or tell him to get an old cheap FF cam off ebay to see if he really truly cares about having to stand back a little more or not...

To Tamron 180mm f3.5 Macro or not? I love my 90mm Adaptall SP, but a longer working distance would be nice, and they're 1/3 the price of the Canon 180mm and 1/4 the Nikon 200mm. On the other hand, £250 is £250.
>>
>>4063117
Find out how much working distance it has.
Formulate all of the use cases with poential situation/subjects for the lens.
Then decide whether it's something you can't already do with your current gear
Or consider whether there are better options for thos particular use cases., for example maybe you want a difference type of Tripod macro that had better magnification, etc.
>>
>>4063120
For 1:1 it's a ~25cm working distance (lens to subject) vs. ~9cm, so a pretty big improvement. Got a geared slider, but usually just end up being lazy and resting on a knee and eating a few stops of noise to compensate ('m hoping the extra working distance would actually help here, due to blocking less light).
>>
>>4063127
>For 1:1 it's a ~25cm working distance
Okay, now consider how heavy the lens is, are you really going to shoot handheld macro with it?
Or will it be stuck on a tripod?

If it will be stuck on a tripod, what particular situations/subjects do you really, really need it for that you couldn't already do?

It won't because with the longer working distance comes shallower DoF and you WILL need to close down the aperture more to get a workable photo if not resorting to focus stacking.
Upgrading from the usual 90-100mm starting point of macros is shorter focal length getting more DoF with open aperture, thus getting more light.
>>
Does anyone here actually calibrate their lens? My photos are never tack sharp, I always just figured my hands are shakey or I’m take a photo of something that doesn’t have enough contrast to properly edge detect or something. Will calibrating my lens actually make much of a difference?

for jets you can just crank up the shutter speed and be fine with it. prop driven aircraft are kind of a pain since you want to keep the plane sharp but blur the prop to suggest motion. 1/250-1/500 is usually where I try to be for that, it varies by aircraft how fast the prop spins. you need to practice panning with them.

too fast a shutter speed and you freeze the prop like this guy >>4063114

HA!
Also both of those TCs are FF compatible, have the DA TC right here on my FF Pentax. The 1.7x TC was in the film era, of course it is FF compatible you nonce

Fair enough, but you shouldn't really be bragging about oldass crappy teleconverters as you they were some golden standard.
>>
>>4063943
>oldass crappy
The 1.7x TC is still sharp today and also gives AF for manual glass, the HD DA 1.4x TC is sharp as fuck and doesn't degrade IQ in any way on any of my lenses, be it the 300mm prime or the 70-200/2.8 and was made for modern high resolution sensors.

Way to be a loudmouth when you know nothing about lenses and teleconverters. You must be a zoomer child.
>>
>>4063952
You're either implying those pentax teleconverters are better than the others above, or you're implying your eyes are so damaged you could never tell the difference.
>>
>>4063953
Maybe you should check your eyes or practice reading some more, school will help with that.
I never stated one was better than the other, I stated these new MILC TCs have massive protruding elements and those only allow a few select lenses to be used on them. No thanks, I'd rather have a TC that allows whatever lens I want to put on.
>>
>>4063958
So then the issue is with your eyes, you're okay with subpar teleconverters from half a century ago, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Just try not to pretend they are on the same tier as modern ones.

>these new MILC TCs
That's not an issue with MILC. The Pentax TC is special but when you have such a shitty TC it's basically no better than just cropping

>>
>>4063958
>I stated these new MILC TCs
Protruding elements has been the standard for quality TC's for the last 20-30 years. Every Nikon TC with AF (back to 1992), and every Canon EF TC (1988) has protruding elements. Sony didn't with the A-mount, but did with the E-mount. Olympus didn't with the original 4/3 mount, but they do with m43 (along with Panasonic). Fuji does as well.

Pentax, and 3rd parties, are really the only one that don't nowadays. You might have better compatibility with using lenses you otherwise couldn't (honestly probably shouldn't bother), but that comes at a decrease in optical quality. Even Pentax knew this, which is why the old "pro" quality TC's from Pentax used to protrude, and they made cheaper / more compatible TC's that didn't.

This is a stupid question but.... if my favorite lens resolves at best 8MP is there any reason at all to use it on a higher resolution camera than I already have?
>>
>>4064170
Most people will tell you "no". But a higher resolution sensor can usually provide you a diminishing returns, like....+1% more resolution.
So basically not worth it.

You'd still get better overall performance, and higher res image scaled down to 8mp should still look better than native 8mp, but it's pretty marginal gains for weaker lenses.

>>4064617
Can't speak for clarity, but the D850 viewfinder is higher magnifcation (0.75x vs 0.7x). The K-1 has greater eyepoint distance (~21mm vs 17mm), and marginally greater diopter adjustments.
D850 will look bigger, but K-1 might be easier to use if you wear glasses. D850 viewfinder is on the larger side of FF DSLRs, K-1 viewfinder is pretty standard for FF DSLRs.

Guys, what's the DSLR camera with the best sensor?
Now that plenty of professionals are going to sell their gear for cheap I want to get myself a decent DSLR and here's what I care about
>don't care about resolution, if it has more than 8MP it's enough for me
>don't care about jpeg color science, I'm going to edit every photo and I only care about raw manipulability
>don't care about low light, I'll only shoot near base ISO so I mostly care about dynamic range
>the mount has to have very good lenses
>>
>>4064942
Get a d810 or a d850. dxomark rates both of their sensors highly.
>>
>>4064949
I can go to dxomark myself, I would prefer some actual opinions :/
>>
>>4064942
My experience with the Nikon D700 has been very positive, good colours in raw, pretty good dynamic range. Very well rounded camera.

While I have not had personal experience with them, the D4 and the Df both have incredible dynamic range from the photos I've seen.

And it being nikon they're natively compatible with lenses from the stone age.

I cannot give you opinions on any other brands simply due to lack of personal experience.
>>
Should I get a Leica Q or a X100V? How can I decide? I guess I prefer the 35mm length but as a single-camera collection, it will be useful to have 28mm.

Why are they going to sell their gear?
>>
>>4064950
He's right though. D850 especially (which was where they introduced BSI) is a strong contender for pretty much any definition of "best sensor". The huge number of pickles and low-light capability just come along for the ride with the improvements in dynamic range that have happened over the years. It's not like you have to sacrifice one of those things to minmax another, they just all advance as technology improves.

Dynamic range improvements have slowed down in recent years so you might well find an older model quite good enough. But the newer sensors are going to be measurably better.

It uses 620 film which is not generally available.The 620 spool is slightly smaller than 120 film (which is still available) and some fiddling is likely needed if you actually want to take photos with it. Or pay for someone who does the spool fiddling for you.

Dunno, here the only people who buy and shill it are Canonikon boomers. They're obviously crazy expensive because everything is manufactured in Germland. A bit like RRS devoid of sex appeal. But they offer a range of macro solutions no one else does. Don't look up their motorized rails lel.

I could've gotten either the horizontal or longitudinal sledge on top, which would've made it about €150 cheaper. But I knew I would have hated myself the second I needed to switch orientation so I got the cross sledge (which price aside is great design and should be copied by other companies)

Why did you let this happen?
>>
>>4065677
Consider the latest true SLTs, A77II and A99, both had remarkably shit AF, while the viewfinder used the sensor the AF used the translucent mirror and a proprietary AF sensor design that didn't use the proper phase optics. Sony had to put a full A7II into the A99II to make it work and still the SLT AF was subpar even to beginner DSLRs like the 550D.
It was a shitshow with mindblowingly expensive glass that produced blurry shit half the time because of the shitty AF.
At the time everyone talking about how bad was Pentax AF while Sony SLT was never mentioned. Pentax was 80% hit on tracking and 100% on single while Sony SLT struggled on single AF with less than 80% hit and tracking was abysmal 40% or less. This is on the high end SLTs.
Sony really had no other route but go with MILC full time.

soo
my pentax KS-2 has fallen victim to the aperture block problem and so I'm considering buying a 120€ used pentax K200d as a replacement
Reason is that the pentax K70 has the same problem as the pentax KS2 so I don't want to have another 500€+ camera becoming unusable because of it.
At least the used K200D is rather cheap and seems to take decent pics.

What do you think ? Would you say it makes sense to use such an old camera in year 2022 ?
>>
>>4065779
The K-70 is after the revision of the aperture block. I didn't hear about any problems so it is safe to buy, besides the whole issue is about a number of batches from a dodgy supplier that Ricoh kicked out.
But the K-200D for 120€ seems steep, you can buy a K-10D for that money. Why not look for a used K-5 or K-3 instead?
Also some of these aperture block problems can be fixed DIY if you know how to handle a screwdriver but get a JIST screwdriver set. You can also try service, it is known Pentax serviced these aperture block problems highly discounted way after the recall period ended.
>>
>>4065779
Get a K-50, which basically is a K-5 underneath its cheaper shell.

I think there is a lens included, could probably drop the price by getting only the body. The appeal is that I can see it physically easily

>Also some of these aperture block problems can be fixed DIY if you know how to handle a screwdriver but get a JIST screwdriver set. You can also try service, it is known Pentax serviced these aperture block problems highly discounted way after the recall period ended.
yeah I tried the DIY way myself but I fucked up. I did everything right, removing the screws, taking note of the positions etc. I found the solenoid and while trying to remove the bottom part it goes flying inside the camera's body and got stuck on one of the magnetic components. After a lot of trying I gave up on the piece and put everything back together, the bottom part of the solenoid still being stuck somewhere. Somewhat it still works, except for the aperture of course.
The guys from the store told me pentax didn't fix it anymore, guarantee or not. Maybe I should have tried contacting pentax first.

No I don't want to risk having an aperture block problem again, especially since I'm so bad at repairing electronics

I need a telephoto for my Sony A6000, but I'm on a budget. Is the 55-210mm my only budget option? Is there anything between that and the Tamron 18-300 or Sony 70-350 in terms of quality and price? I'd like to be able to take telephoto landscapes and compressed images featuring people and the moon when the conditions allow. The fact that I can get the 55-210 off eBay for literally 1/5 the price of the Tamron and less than 1/6 the price of the Sony 70-350 really counts for something. Especially since they all have about the same aperture. My only concern is the functional 315mm focal length not being enough for my lofty ambitions and being unhappy with the lens because of that.
>>
>>4065801
It's the shills' favorite lens, even though it's inferior to the tamron 18-70 in every way.
>>
If I have the Sigma 16mm f1.4 but find that sometimes it's not wide enough for the wide angle landscapes I want to capture, should I add an ultra-wide like the Rokinon 12mm f2 or 7Artisans 10mm f2.8 fisheye to my lineup?

I want to be able to capture photos like pic related, taken at 16mm full frame.

I'm thinking the functional 18mm focal length of the Rokinon might not be enough, and may be too close in look to the Sigma. The 7A lens could be very interesting. I think playing around with a fisheye could be fun, but that's secondary to being able to take photos like pic related. What are my best options here?
>>
>>4065802
>Especially since they all have about the same aperture.
Aperture whoring won't help you in this case.

The lenses you are comparing are made in different eras and with completely different skill levels of optical designers.
That old lens is cheap only because nobody would want it otherwise. And even at 1/5th the price they still struggle to sell it.
>>
>>4065801
>which is somewhat a good deal
It's a good deal indeed, but the older Japanese copies of that lens are better on average

>>4065803
*17-70 and the Tamron is 1.8 times as heavy and 5 cm longer
It's a very different lens for a different purpose

Quality requires heavy.

Is this normal bokeh for a Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS Full-frame Telephoto Model SEL70300G? I like the detail it captures for the things in focus, but the bokeh looks smeary and terrible for an expensive lens. If I return it do I have a chance of getting a better version? Does this have something to do with stabilization or steady shot being on?

The other day I got a new canon ef 50mm 1.8 stm and while it was very crisp, the manual focus by wire system was unusable due to lag. So I bought an Olympus f-zukio 1.8 50mm instead and am much happier with it, plus it was half of the already very low price of the canon.

The Sony G lens has autofocus which makes it multipurpose.And still has a focus ring with hardstops.

The Laowa is definitely the superior specialised macro lens. Plus it's cheaper.
The 90mm is much more compact than the 100mm made for DSLR.

High ISO + reasonable light + IBIS = handhelding 180mm in the macro range works fine. It also means you're not wiping the front of your lens over the subject to achieve the desired magnification (OK if you have a probe lens, but not so fun with a regular lens and body that blocks out whatever light is available).
And if you want any decent depth of field at appreciable magnification, you're going to be focus stacking with a rail anyway, so a longer lens makes things easier with the greater working room and not needing ludicrous assemblies like flexible arms to hang speedlights off of.

Nope, there won't be any difference in that regard between a 100mm macro vs a 180mm macro.

All you're doing is handicapping yourself with a 1,6 kilogram lens and forcing yourself to use a worse macro lens because some retard reviewer convinced you you need that extra working distance.

>Nope, there won't be any difference in that regard between a 100mm macro vs a 180mm macro.
100mm @ 1:1 ~150mm MWD

>>
>>4066564
>150mm MWD
Are you saying this is a problematic working distance that compromises the lighting?
>>
>>4066569
Yes. Assume a 72mm filter size (fairly standard), at 150mm MWD you are covering an absolute minimum 0.72Sr blockage vs. 0.26Sr for 250mm MWD. And that's just an absolute minimum for the lens itself, once you start adding the body behind it, and the person operating the body, the difference get even larger. No need to fight the inverse-square law when you don't need to.

I dunno about $350 for something that old, maybe if the lens makes up most of the value (check resale prices). You can definitely get something made in the last decade with that much and not a piece of shit either. In practice not sure how much better they are than the more pedestrian d200 that I see going on ebay regularly for less than $100 with a lens. If you really just want to learn the basics just get whatever the cheapest working dslr+lens combo there is on egay. Maybe even don't go for a modern AF lens and roll with a vintage 50 for a while so you can learn scale focusing and stuff.

Solid camera, built like a tank. It lacks a lot of the modern quality of life features, and the screen is awful. The IQ is totally usable, but again poor by today's standards (lower resolution, terrible high ISO). I'd be curious to see what the battery situation is like nowadays. I had a $100 D2h I rocked for a while, and back then the batteries alone were going for +$100, and that was 10 years ago. The principles are the same though, so learning on it would give you the skills to use on any other camera going forward.

>Yongnuo was a great option like 10 years ago
What likely happened was they saw the rise of smartphones and saw the decline in camera sales, and jumped ship prematurely.

That explains why they never supported the E-mount hotshoes which is clearly a mistake in hindsight.
Now they're trying to make some E-mount lenses late into the game. But now they are afraid of challenging godox who already has a massively established customer base.

The longer the lens the more things also get in the way. At 120 mm FFE (which is what I'm using), shooting in tall grass can be quite annoying already. 10 cm more MWD is a lot of space for things to get into the way. On the other hand, it does have its advantages when shooting things like dragonflies or butterflies that won't let you get very close in the first place.

I'm not a canon user, but the 22mm lens on canon apsc (1.6x) is around 35mm FF equiv. your phone is 28mm FF equiv. and set it to 3:2 ratio to mimmick your camera. your 32mm lens is around 51mm FF equiv. gauge it from those if you dont have a kit lens.
it really depends how wide you want it to be. for tight indoor portraits, the 22mm lens should be ok. but if you need those interior architectural, ultrawide, vlogging type shots, then the 11-22 lens is also ok, but its not as bright as the 22 f2 lens.

EOS R + RF 24-105/4
Aside from a pretty shit ergonomics the EOS R's still a pretty deceent camera with nice AF, although not on pair with the likes of A7III/IV

I only have the kit lens for my D3500 and I'd like to get something nicer. I'd like to expand in both fashion/portraiture and astrophotography and I was wondering if there was a lens that could be a decent fit for both, do you have any recs?
Under 400 bucks would be nice but I'd consider paying a bit more. Been looking into some models with 1.8-2.4 apertures and rather short focal lengths but I don't really know what to look for beyond that.

I'd say start with a 50/1.8, then maybe a 135mm or an older design 70-200/2.8

Neat, I was kinda torn between the nikkor 1.8G 35 and 50 lately so I wasn't sure which one thanks anon

No, the D3500 doesn‘t support the old screw motor AF system. You can still use the lenses but only manually.

You‘ll need at least a D90/D7000 or better to gain full screw motor AF compatibility.

im the person asking about the dx2 but nice for him to know too
do the old full manual ones work with it?

Most of them will work just fine. AI, AI converted, AI-S, AF, and AF-D, and most AF-S will all work just fine.
Pre-AI won't mount. AF-P and some modern "E" (electronic diaphragm, not to be confused with older "Series E") will mount, but the electronics can't communicate and are effectively unusable.
FWIW my D2h AF screw did die at some point, so couldn't AF with AF-D lenses (could with AF-S or manual focus course).

Im convinced that the sigma 150-600mm is peak tele zoom lens. I mean, at its price point its the best in slot for an F mount lens.
