Julian, considering you have the 17mm + 24mm TSE's, what does the Nikon offer?

Well, Lee filters has just released/produced a filter holder for the Nikon 14-24. This is something I've been waiting for a while now(mine's preordered @ 2Filter.com). Considering that I do have the 17 and 24 TS-Es, the 17 isn't capable of using filters at this time. This is a big concern for me bcoz' 24mm will not be wide enough for certain situations. Lee has announced that they will be adapting for lenses that have bulbous elements in 2011. Do I know which lenses are going to be adapted? Not sure. But, I have this feeling that Lee will make adapters for lenses such as the 17 TS, 14 L, Sigma 12-24, Tokina 16-28, etc. I am aware of my overlap with wide angle lenses but, I'm UWA angle fanatic. :)

Here's a link from Lee filters USA. Read the third paragraph down. :)

Thanks.

An AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G Autofocus Lens + Novoflex Nikon G will still be cheaper than a 50L :cool:

Here's a YouTube video of the adapter.

Here's another one with the adapter on the old Canon 300D. :)

From the videos the aperture control looks really stiff and difficult to move in a precise way (?)

Not at all. If you ever MF'd with a Zeiss lens, it kind of feels like that.:)

Gotcha, makes sense. Makes me feel better about holding on to my 17-40 just because I have more filters for it, even though I have a 16-35 and a bunch of other WA lenses. ;)

Well after using my TS lenses, I got rid of my 16-35 II. So to fill that gap, I got the Nikon 14-24 in place of it. Now if Canon could only make such a lens. :)

Yep, I really don't care for my 16-35 - it's mostly a backup for weddings.

This is a lens that I enjoy more and more, the EF 80-200mm f/2.8 L. It isn't USM but it does focus quickly and is quite sharp. The only downside is that it is rather large and heavy. In fact it is almost as big and heavier than all three of Canon's other 80-200mm EF lenses put together. It has a UE date code (1990). 20 years old and still a good lens.

I bet it outclasses those other three by some way though!

Not by as much as you would think in terms of image quality. Especially the EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II gets very sharp is it is stopped down. The other two aren't bad either. Hoods should be used though. Of course the L lens can open to f/2.8 for shallow depth of field effects or high shutter speeds so it is more a more capable lens but in simple testing side by side, the image quality differences aren't huge for static scenes. The non-L lenses don't have focus rings either. You actually have to just turn the end of the lens barrel. There are lots of other advantages to the L lens like a focus scale window, metal mount, non-rotating or extending filter thread etc.

The little plastic 80-200's fit easily in a jacket pocket and weigh almost nothing so it is easy to have a telephoto with you if you don't bring a big camera bag. The lens that is with you takes better pictures than the one you left at home because it was too big, heavy or conspicuous.
