If you had your choice between this or the Mitakon Speedmaster f.95 which would you choose? Why? I’m guessing videographers would choose this lens because of the ability for in lens de clicking, pretty smart of Laowa.I would like this or the 35mm, I'd never spend the $4000+ for a Canon L version with AF.... that will never happen anyway.
As others have said, with mirrorless and the included tools like focus peaking, its easy to use these MF lenses....even if you have really poor vision like I do.If only could support AF then it would be a no brainer lens even with a 300$+ price for the af mechanism...! Damn it I feel everytime there is that little missing piece that holds back from perfection...
I'm a big fan of adapting lenses both old and new to mirrorless.If you had your choice between this or the Mitakon Speedmaster f.95 which would you choose? Why? I’m guessing videographers would choose this lens because of the ability for in lens de clicking, pretty smart of Laowa.
Yes, focus peaking works e.g. on FD lenses adapted to my RP really well. Focus peaking is a method where the camera evaluates the contrast between pixels. If the contrast is high, the camera cpu/software assumes that this region of the sensor is in focus and exhibits detail ... with contrast.I thought focus peaking would work on ANY manual focus lens you hooked to a RF body....?
Oh, I think the bigger the aperture the BETTER the focus peaking would work as it'd be so clear in the viewfinder what portions of the scen aren't in focus at all.Since going mirrorless, the manual focus is much less of a liability. Focus peaking makes this pretty functional, although I have to say I haven't tried this with a lens with quite that big an aperture.
