Nothing, in my opinion
Hi Folks.I ran into miscellaneous problems like that once. Doing a fully manual test worked fine.
Thanks Badger, was hoping to know that for myself by now.
Oh well I tried focal tonight, got target up, set up camera on tripod square right height etc. Start test and get the message failed to download image, process timed out.
Turns out my laptop which I thought might be slow is past it!
Hope her old laptop (better than mine but still not new) will manage to work. Not sure the long USB cable from upstairs will be that practical!
Different strokes for different folks I guess, but I found the Sigma 35 Art to be a game changer. Before I bought it I rented both the Sigma & the cheaper Canon at the same time to compare and to my eyes at least it wasn't even close...
Now for my style of shooting, sharpness is everything... The Sigma at 1.4 is every bit as sharp as the Canon at 2.0 http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=824&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=829&CameraComp=453&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0. With both lenses at 2.0, the Sigma left the Canon in the dust http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=824&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=829&CameraComp=453&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=2
Don't get me wrong, I like image stabilization as much as the next guy, but for me 35mm is easily wide enough so that IS isn't really necessary. But to each his own...
Adorama isn't a rumour site. They won't write anything unless they've got something to write.Unless they create placeholders ahead of time with unconfirmed specs that they get from rumor sites
Thanks. Have you tried the Samyang? It's one of the few Samyangs I haven't owned/used. I'd be interested in hearing a first-hand experience! If the Samyang has a worse IQ though, it's not worth it, you get what you pay for, I rather pay more. Who ever heard of a cheap TS lens! I'll read the review you linked now.
Ps. is the 17mm L or not? I though it wasn't an L lens but amazon lists it as an L lens! Which is it?
There is a Samyang UMC version, and there was an earlier MC version which was slightly different and was produced only at the very beginning (as far as I know - I think wikipedia has something on that). I have seen the Rokinon branded only labeled as MC, never as UMC. I believe they never cared to update the name for the Rokinon branded versionsRokinon FE14M-C 14mm F2.8 is the name in the ebay ad, but is it a different version than the one found in internet reviews (Lenstip review, etc), aka Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC?
No Rokinon developed an entirely new lens with the exact same specs as their best selling 14mm lens, specifically so they could disappoint customers but offer a 20% discount. It's brilliant decision making if you ask me.
I'm not sure the sarcasm is warranted. I believe Samyang/Rokinon did have an earlier version 14mm that was no where near as steller as the current (reviewed) model. I suspect the poster wishes to avoid making a mistake. Does anyone know the answer?
I trust you realize that a single off-camera flash set up is just a gateway drug.Isn't that true for most gear recommendations?
