Technical Support / fungus & silica gel
« on: December 25, 2014, 10:30:58 PM »
Hi All, a question for people in the know! Is it ok to use silica gel on stored lenses? I store all my bodies and lenses in a pelican case, there is conflicting info on what is best practice! Most recommend to frequently expose your lenses to air and sunlight to prevent fungus!?

Third Party Manufacturers / 40-50mm for a7r
« on: December 17, 2014, 05:50:05 AM »
Hello All, just after some opinion/advice for my a7r, I'm looking for a 40-50mm lens with a fast aperture around 1.4 it can be an old or new lens since I will only be using it in manual focus with the appropriate adapter so any mount will be ok just want something that's not to expensive but reasonably sharp especially wide open, any suggestions? Even a vintage lens, but there's so many I'm not sure which one to get :-\ thanks...

I have to ask, what's the point of the mirrorless camera if it used EF lenses? The 6D isn't that much bigger than the A7, and they could probably shave some size off the next one if they wanted to.

??? Which part of the 6d "isn't that much bigger" ?

I also bought mine second hand from eBay, pretty good condition with a slight dint on the hood. Overall this lens is fantastic, mine is very sharp at 2.8 and iq is excellent. You might have bad copy, but I've never used the roki so I can't compare, I have many L lenses and the 15mm is as good :)

With the lenses she already has, I think a newer camera is a better gift. IMHO.


I try to set realistic prices, rather than wishful ones.  That's why they usually sell in minutes when I list them on ebay.
Anyone wanting to buy that 50mm f/0.7 IS lens shown on my profile, make me a offer :D

$10000 :P

I'm in Australia, I'm expecting $2500+ AU$ for this lens ... I'm totally ok with that ... check it out .. it's a great lens, even before the reviews I'm sold.

Well it just doesn't make any sense if it is made in japan.  Basically they make it in japan, send it to he u.s. and then send it back and it somehow gets $400 cheaper.  And if it was 2 weeks ago when the yen was stronger the price difference would have been $800.  Seems like Canon USA learned from the market and Canon Japan is just acting the same as always.

Canon Australia suck, I get everything Canon from Hong Kong as a grey import, saved thousands over the years and I've never had problems with warranties ;)

I think the optical performance specs will be a significant improvement.  What would be the point of a new version if it weren't?  Just saying.

My copy of v1 is quite sharp. I doubt the new one will be significantly sharper (perhaps I have a particularly good copy). What it will have is greatly improved IS, lens coatings and (hopefully) weather resistance. The slotted hood for filters is also intriguing. Though I'm not particularly interested in upgrading, I will keep an open mind.

My lens is quite good and others have noticed the fact.  I think it's more about techniques and lighting.  This is at f6.3 ISO 200 on a 5D III  (click on the photo for a larger size)
