Lenses / Re: Vintage Lenses: Any Advise?
« on: September 24, 2012, 01:51:45 PM »
Zeiss Jena 35mm f/2.8 or f/2.4 are both good and i really dig the colors on mine (2.8 zebra edition). Super Takumar 50mm 1.4 is also really nice, make sure its the multi coating version.  Vivitar 28mm f/2.5 soft wide open but its still nice :) I think most old m42 lenses are quite good.

Oh and dont worry about the focussing :)  I got no af confirm chip and just using my standard 1100D viewfinder and i get as many keepers as with my AF lenses. But i also dont shoot speedy things! Just people in normal pace etc.

I also thought about getting the 6D but I thought if im already gonna pay that much for a body probably I will just save more money and get a 5D mk3. It will be the body with all the features I can wish for and i will use it so many years. The 6D lacks some options...

I dont think Canon will release a 35mm 1.8. But theres already Rokinon/Samyang/etc. 35mm 1.4 or the Sigma 30mm 1.4 and soon sigma 35mm 1.4.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: EdMika Launches the FDn to EOS Adaptor

One issue besides mounting via an adapter is AF lock/confirmation

Its not really an issue after some training. I do it on my 1100Ds viewfinder (no manual focus screens available) and most photos are focused properly. With less DOF i think its even easier to focus cuz its easy to make out whats sharp and whats not.

My problem with the "adapter" is that its not really an adapter but rather a conversion kit. If i got more than 1 FDn lens theres no way im gonna unscrew/screw the stuff in place all the time :P Ah yeah i remember i can just buy several conversion kits then....or maybe just get an L lens instead ;)

I can understand avoiding a car or a floor number with the number 4 in it, because plenty of people are killed in cars and buildings. But when was the last time someone was killed by a camera?

When was the last time religions and beliefs made logic sense?  8)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Photokina 2012: Samyang 10mm f/2.8 for APS-C

Help me understand the need of F2.8 in such a lens.

I would think, that at 10mm, this lens will be mostly used as a landscape/architecture photography tool, and for that you will need the biggest DOF. Of course, at 10mm even 2.8mm will you give great DOF, but i will doubt that anyone will use it due to softness.

So why is it F2.8? so you could handhold shoot at night some buildings? (Most would still use tripod and bigger F stop anyway)

For Astrographers so they can have less exposure time and less noise in the end. I guess.
Manual Focus without a proper manual focussing screen wont be hard with that lens i hope. Im having a hard time with my 28mm f/2.5 lens already. Anything else 35+ works fine manually focussing (m42 lenses, no af chip)

Third Party Manufacturers / Yongnuo Flashes
« on: September 19, 2012, 11:04:14 AM »

are Yongnuo Flashes worth their money? Theyre really cheap around 70$ for a "power 58" flash. No idea what its called correctly called in engrish.
Also, could i just get ANY flash on my eos 1100D body and then use that one as some kind of "transmitter" to set off an external flash? Or how does it work...

Samyang 35 1.4 is also good. I wonder how the new sigma 35mm 1.4 will perform =)

5months, 1800 shots eos 1100D. Im afraid it will break soon :(

The 6D is gonna replace the 7D money-wise in the future. But its a full frame! Big plus! Probably my first fullframe im getting.

Lenses / Re: Poll: 35mm Vs 50mm Primes
« on: September 17, 2012, 10:24:10 AM »
I voted for the 50 cuz im using a 35mm on my APS-C so thats roughly a 50mm Fullframe. Id love to use a 35 on my aps-c but i dont find any appealing 20mm lenses.

Why not the Zeiss 21? :)

Because i want to have a wide open aperture and that gets less and less realistic considering i need a ca. 20mm lens for my APS-C. Plus the Zeiss is really expensive to me!!
Next thing i will buy is the Samyang 35mm 1.4. Im used to manual focus anyway with my tons of m42 lenses even without manual focus screen through my viewfinder :P My eyes are still fine ^^
At the moment using zeiss 35mm 2.8 Zebra a lot :)

I dont think anything else besides different amount of pixels is a "new developement".

@ above me

This would be too cheap for Canon?

Just see what Leica did with their totally different *cough* M9-P. Remove a red dot and sell it for more cash to ONLY well earning customers...
