General discussion on lens topics, not specific to Canon, Nikon, Konica/Minolta, Mamiya, Pentax, etc.
Some of you may know me from POTN, photography-on-the.net, I have a thread started over there because back in July I started a lens rental website. I asked permission to start a thread here, and was granted that permission.
So here I am, offering fellow NorthEastFoto.com members 25% on...
Found this in my jaunts around the web today...
The pin inside the Shift Knob of my Canon Tilt Shift lens got lost...Is there a way I can find a store online which sells replacement parts for Canon cameras?
I have the knob I just need the pin to put it back...
I have looked at ebay, etc and so far I couldn't find any stores which sells small...
Boo, hiss... can't believe she's finally gone. I just wasn't using the 400mm to warrant keeping it around so she's off to a photog in Indiana that does a lot of football and soccer.
Is there anybody using the Hartblei Super Rotator 45mm/35mm, etc with Pentacon 6 adapter for any MF or 35mm camera?
Do you like it? Can you share some samples?
My son started racing motocross this year and I mainly used my Canon 75-300. Its not bad but I am looking for something better. Any suggestings would be great.
Never really did any real macro work, since I do not have a macro lens. I shoot Nikon. I am sort of kicking around the idea of getting a macro lens, but money is short. Anyone have and decent recommendations for a macro lens? I would certainly be open to the option of an older film lens if it would...
Here's my gear:
70-200 f/2.8 IS
Can anyone explain if there's and real difference between the US and Imported versions of Canon's lenses?
I'm currently looking at picking up another lens in the next month. I'm either looking at a macro (Canon 100mm or Sigma 50mm) or a Canon 85mm f1.8. The Canon lenses have the US and...
Ok, dumb question. I am considering buying a 28-105 IF F3.5/4.5lens. Guy who owns it says it is a great FX lens. He only shoots FX bodies. Question is, will this lens work on a DX body? I assume it will only it would be more like a 42-150 lens rather than a 28-105? I belive this is an older lens...
I was wondering what was the prefered lens for those of you who are "Birders".
I see these beautiful Eagle, Hawk, Osprey photo's and was wondering what was the lens that you all use the most.
Looking to get the Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS when looking I see on Canon's site they now have a new model. Hmmm. There is no price on it....wonder if it will be worth waiting for and spending what I'm guessing will be more.
I have seen two different types of Reversing Rings.
1. One anctually goes onto the camera body and reverses just the one lens.
2. The other attaches two lenses face to face (like where you put a filter on)
Does anyone have any advice on either?? Preferences?? Dislikes??
Last thing that was discussed in the video was NOT complaining about having to carry a 500mm "long distances"... this monster 1200mm weighs in at over 35lbs! HAHAHHHA
Does anyone have any info/opinions on this lens?
I am looking for a tele/zoom lens to take backpacking, and dont want to spend the money (~400) on the Nikon ED 70-300 since this would be a backpacking lens...
The choice is between the promaster, and the equivalent Nikon lens (the G lens),...
Three months ago I was thinking about getting a Canon 50D body because I wanted to try low light concert photog. I asked for opinions on another forum. Almost everyone suggested getting faster glass and wait for the Canon 60D. Sounded like very good advice. So I got a Sig 17-70mm f 2.8. This...
I remember reading a post a while back on here (can't remember if it was Ross or Mike) but they were talking about super-telephoto lens support. I think it was about a 300mm f2.8L - how you need to buy a lot of support items to use a lens of this mass. Like a heavy duty monopod, etc....

What else can I say?
I wanted to throw out a question to the group. I am looking to get a TC.
Any input on what I should get? Brand? Size?
Any comments from experience with an extender would be appreciated!! I would want to keep the best quality image I could...I don't want to loose quality to save money....
I have a friend looking at this.
She wants to do some Long Lens shooting.
The two lens:
1. Vivitar Series 1 650-1300mm f/8-16 Telephoto Zoom Lens
2. Vivitar Series 1 500mm f/8 Telephoto...
With my trip to Florida coming up in a couple weeks, I decided to take a risk and I picked up a month old Sigma 150-500. It came yesterday, just as I was going to work. This morning I went down to Bradley Airport. Much to my surprise, they had the long runway closed for construction. So that...
Just got the Sigma 150-500mm lens today and thought I'd comare it with the my Sigma 18-200 and my Tamron 70-300. All test photos shot at ISO200 f8 and 1/400sec except for the 500mm shot which was 1/500, the focus point from camera is about 600'. Let me say this baby is BIG weighs in at 4lbs. I...
