Quote from: KLaban on February 18, 2019, 08:17:24 amThanks Bernard, appreciated.OOF qualities when working at wide apertures are extremely important to much of the work I'm currently shooting. Trouble is I'm used to Leica M lenses and I'm looking to replicate those qualities in a really compact full frame autofocus system as an addition to the M system.Still searching...
Quote from: Rob C on February 18, 2019, 08:33:36 amKeith, you are close to London: go to Greys of Westminster and ask for a test shoot there and then. Since my local wholesaler abandoned Mallorca, I have bought from them by post and find them honest, professional and very fair. A few minutes shooting outside the door would answer all your questions by your own hand, the best test there ever is.Rob
Quote from: KLaban on February 18, 2019, 10:27:48 amRob, to be really sure I'd rent and make the comparison with what I already have. I used to use Greys but have an excellent Nikon dealer closer to home, avoids costly train fares or congestion charges and they offer a rental refund on purchases.You mentioned elsewhere that I should listen carefully to V. At times I get somewhat frustrated when I miss focus when shooting wide apertures with manual focus Leica lenses but the qualities when the Gods are on my side more than compensate. I'm envious of V's auto focus, image stabilised capabilities and she's envious of the qualities of my Leica lenses.The grass is always greener...

Quote from: armand on March 01, 2019, 03:27:02 pmAs appealing as the 15-30 is I'm very curious about he 14-24 F 2.8 size/weight.The reason is I could eliminate a wide lens for night photography and then the weight might be worth it. I know that when I was thinking to go Sony route I was more tempted by the 16-35 F 2.8 than the F4 or the 12-24 F4 for this exact reason.
Quote from: faberryman on March 01, 2019, 03:56:37 pmI am surprised at how many people buy fast lenses for low light photography, yet you don't see much low light photography online. The difference between f2.8 and f4 is one stop. Given the low light performance of modern sensors, just dial up the ISO one stop.
Quote from: BernardLanguillier on March 01, 2019, 03:40:04 amI just tried the eye AF with 24-70mm f2.8 at 70mm/f2.8... it works great.Cheers,Bernard
Quote from: MichaelEzra on March 01, 2019, 07:48:54 pmHi Bernard, is this with beta firmware for Nikon Z or some other camera system?
Quote from: vjbelle on March 01, 2019, 07:49:53 amCan anyone confirm or not that the internal stabilization system works when a manual lanes (such as an Otis) is used?Victor
