  1. Question: What is YOUR favorite lens, and why should everyone else agree with you?
  2. I've recently purchased a Sony A7r and am now considering lens options. My main interest is FL 35/50mm with 75mm occasionally. The Zeiss "top of the range" selection is out of my budget and I wonder what would you consider a suitable quality lens (or two) within the "more affordable" bracket. Maybe a zoom, maybe primes. I have no idea of Sony lenses and your advices would be most appreciated. Thanks Ray
  3. I've been reading mixed reviews about the Sony 35mm f2.8 za Although I am considering renting it for the weekend, I'd like to find out what lenses find the best balance between portability and size (i.e., small & light) (A7rii)
  4. Can anyone think of a reason why Adobe ACR (latest cc version) is only correcting for chromatic aberration when opening RAF (RAW) files from Fuji X-T1 with 35mm f/1.4 lens and not applying a correction for distortion or vignetting? There is no separate lens profile available as I understand it, Adobe simply apply what Fuji supply in the RAF file. An information box bottom right corner in ACR confirms it "The RAW file contains a built-in lens profile for correcting chromatic aberration. The profile has already been applied automatically to this image." I have seen other people comment that the box (for other Fuji lenses) sometimes states "chromatic aberration and vignetting". When I open RAF files from my Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 the box states "distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting". Are Fuji suggesting that the 35mm f/1.4 is free from distortion? It clearly isn't, I use it every day to document books and artwork, almost always with lots of vertical and horizontal lines in the subject, and there is often very significant distortion (barrel). At the moment I have to adjust the distortion manually which is very time consuming. I have the latest firmware loaded in the X-T1 body and in the lens, and am using the very latest version of Photoshop CC and ACR. Any ideas? Marc
  5. Hi Folks's, i have a planned trip to shoot wildlife in Africa this coming March. All of my telephotos are Canon L series, for the ease of getting close and distant shots in a hurry from a car without working to cameras and big prime telephotos i was considering the Sigma 150-600 sports Telezoom. Has anybody here used or own this lens and are there any serious problems or downfalls? my biggest concern is lack of sharpness. I will be very happy to know of your experiences before shelving out €2000. Thanks everybody, Paul.
  6. I am looking at purchasing a Nikon D810 for landscape photography, can any current users of this camera recommend a suitable lens to go with the D810, keeping in mind that it is mainly for landscape photography, i have heard that the 14 to 24 is a great lens is it? or is there a better lens? Thank's to all. Paul.
  7. I got my Fuji 18-135mm lens yesterday and while generally pleased, especially with the range (simplifies walkaround kit) I do have a couple of concerns. First: do other people find the last bit of the zoom range ~100-135mm a bit tight and not as smooth as the rest of the action? Secondly: I am finding significant chromatic aberration at the 18mm end of the range. It just about cleans up with the CA correction in Capture 1 Pro but there seems to be a hint of residual fringing. (I will sort out some 100% crops in due course). In the light of recent discussions about QC failing images for CA I am very concerned that this lens might not be usable for Alamy! I need to run more tests as all the images I noticed it on were taken at around f13-14 which will be getting into diffraction territory or is it perhaps an artifact from the C1Pro demosaicing of the X-Trans data? The ooc jpegs seem well corrected (see below). First the uncorrected raw: And now the ooc JPEG Anybody else with this lens have any thoughts? Thanks Martin
  8. Anybody here using the Canon 16-35mm f/4 L lens. I have been struggling for some time with the 17-40mm and it's soft corners on a full frame, i understand that the 16-35 f/4 is better in this area. Some real user advice would be very appreciated. Thanks! Paul.
  9. I've had a Tamron SP AF Di 90mm macro lens for about 6 years and during that time it's produced some brilliant images (on a Canon 5D mk II). However, yesterday, it came up with an error message; "Err1communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts" I did as I was told but the error keeps coming up. Anybody had any experience with this sort of thing or will I have to have the lens repaired/replaced? John.
