    Well, this sucks... Camera and Lens snapped at the mount

    It has happened to me. In India-in 2017- in a national park, I left the bag on a chair and somehow it fell. The 400 DO MK II snapped off from the camera body (1Dx MK II) taking the locking rings out from the camera. I was glad I had my backup 1Dx and the 100-400 MK II for my rescue! Sent it to...

    Here are a few images of the upcoming Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4

    Really? I have all the Otus lenses and used the Sigma art series . They don't even compare when it comes to color, micro contrast and sharpness! !

    Aurora Aperture announces development of filters for the Canon EF-to-RF adapters

    I, for one will be waiting to see those filter's quality as I think they will solve a lot of my problems with bulbous lens fronts and huge filters ! If there is a way that we can stack filters -like a polarizer with an ND, it will be excellent! I have never used their filters. Are they good?

    Canon, King in SLR Cameras, Makes Inroads Into Mirrorless

    The way I understand it... it is simple. Just the way canon captured the SLR/dSLR market , they are going to go full throttle to be the market leader in MILC. Next few years, we will see a lot of new, exciting releases from Canon in this segment to solidify there major market share and then...

    Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS USM Coming First Half of 2018 [CR1]

    I have compared the following 4 lenses in identical settings in one session. 1) Canon 135 F2 2) sigma Art 135 F1.8 3) Canon 70-200 F 2.8L MK II 4) Zeiss Milvus 135 F2 In my opinion- Zeiss is first and far ahead. Nothing comes closer. Sigma and Canon are close second. Sigma may be a tad better...

    Review: Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art

    I compared it to the Zeiss 15 mm Milvus for daytime landscape photography at various apertures . While the Sigma is very good, I find the color, contrast and peripheral sharpness are better with the Zeiss. Not by a big margin though! I must tell you that I have actually cancelled a return...

    Manual Focus Micro Adjustment

    I have the exact same issue that Al described. The latest 135 mm Milvus gave me this headache recently! While it is a phenomenal lens with unbelievable image quality, to me, it seemed like it is front focusing! My eyesight is not great and I was depending on the focus confirmation beep with the...

    What is happening here ?

    Thanks all. again. I found the solution. I think placing the filter in the proximal slot solves the problem. I placed it in the distal one ( just beginning to use it) ! Then I saw the link Mikehit gave from the Lee website. They are exactly right. BTW, I did cover my viewfinder (...

    What is happening here ?

    Thanks everybody Mikehit, it has a foam gasket but obviously it does not work. :( Neuro, will try to do that- not very convenient though :'( BTW, the Cokin P filter holder for 100 mm NDs that I use for my all other lenses except 17 T/S and the Otus 85/28 works fine. Never had any such issues...

    What is happening here ?

    I just wrapped a black cloth around the filter and holder and shot . The problem was gone! So , it was light leak and reflection of the front element from the ND filter. Any practical solution ? Thanks

    What is happening here ?

    Thanks everybody. I think I understand what is happening from the input of all of you. Next question- what is the solution? wrap a black cloth around the filter attachment to prevent light leak ? That would be very inconvenient emI58- how did you solve it? Thanks again

    What is happening here ?

    Please look at the image shot with a Canon 11-24 and a Lee Big stopper (10 stop ND) at around 12 mm. What are all these? Present at all apertures (4-22), worse with smaller. Thanks
