Lenses / Re: what adaptors do i need
« on: March 01, 2013, 11:17:15 PM »
I would second the opinion on the Ed Mika adapters, but it does need to be for something worthwhile, whatever you decide that is. 

I use a T3i, and am looking to get a decent Canon long zoom, maybe the 100 -400 when the new one comes out.  In the meantime I decided to pick up a used Canon FD 500mm reflex (I used to own one that went away with the rest of my old gear when my house got burgled) for an inexpensive long lens capability.  There are lots of pros and cons with reflex lenses, but for around $450 I got the lens and the Ed Mika adapter.  The following pictures I took within three hours of the adapter arriving through my mail box.  I am very pleased with the result.  Any limitations on quality are probably the nature of reflex lenses, they are strongly disliked by some, but it is very light weight, and all pictures were hand held giving an indication of its versatility.

Choose your lens according to your taste, but if you have one you wish to use I'm not aware that you can do better than one of Ed's adapters.

Site Information / Mobile site defaults
« on: December 07, 2012, 10:32:36 PM »
Hi,

Great site, great content.  I often view the site on my iPhone, and I prefer the traditional format, but the site keeps kicking me to the mobile format.  Pain in the ass, can't we have an option to select?  Maybe because of my individual settings (don't like being harvested too much), but it always annoys me and leaves me with a negative impression since you do such a great job.

Merely a question.  Can I set a default, and if so do I have to reset my browser to do that?  I may choose not to go there.

Of course I have to say sure, I'd love some of these things, although I have found the Tamrac Velocity 8 to be an outstandingly versatile bag design. Be interesting to find something superior...
