following to this. i sometimes came into a situation when i wish i still have my 55F1.8

Vinz, 55mm on crop body is a good portrait length right? Seems like, hey what do I know, be nice to have a6300 or a6500 in the
bag or car for backup they are so small and light, and the 55 as backup too. Does that make any sense?

Took a shower and thought about it. A pro would just have another FF body.

I'm with you eriet30, I also had no issues. Funny you mention FM standard, there is a thread from a new photographer with not much experience, he was worried that his few new lenses did not live up to being centered.. Well one of the accomplished photographers ( great work by the way) like many here shinned in and told him go out and shoot the lens as you normally would and enjoy it.. Then evaluate it. No need to get all neurotic about it. If you see something wrong then by all means do a few further tests which he went on to explain. By the way some of the suggestions were really helpful... Personally thats what I do, just go out and shoot it.. If something is wrong you will see it. Fortunately they always been within standard. What is difficult is moving to new system, you have to research it, and believe me I am happy its just about over.

Yes I read there was a Nisi,
This is what I use

I have a 82mm polorizer sprokett that I am able to use in the holder for my largest to my smallest mm lenses with stepdown rings.
I am not sure it will work with all the lenses I am looking into. Just not sure if the hoods are permanent or not.

I did see many felt the same was as you did regarding the 100-400gm

I appreciate your thoughts, thanks eriet30

due to a string of bad luck last year, I test all my lenses for centering.

That said, I'm forgiving of a little decentering wide open, but if it's fairly bad, I'll have it returned. Basically, if you have to do a double take at 100% to figure the decentered corner, then it's a golden copy. If it's there, noticeable, but not huge, I'm keeping it. Large discrepancies can mean something else and possibly even damaged product. I find that in practice, I'm getting pretty good corner to corner performance with all my lenses using this criteria. My CV 35 in M mount has curvature issues, but was still tested for decentering issues. It's acceptable, first copy was straight up poor.

Thank you for the kind words joonrhee! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.

I was out for Christmas break visiting family. We stayed at the Westin Galleria in Dallas. Here is a handheld shot of the beautiful tree in the middle of their skating rink.

"Cool" nice lens and shot.
Rare to find images on here of places I've actually been to [LIve in Europe] also brings to mind [If you don't mind me reminiscing] going to the Traildust [I think] 63oz T-Bone baked potata & colslaw, eat it all in 1 hour it was free ! Had a big kids slide indoors and they came around cutting folks ties off.

Yeah browsing the flickr lens pool definitely sold me on the lens. It looks like it punches above its weight class (in terms of size and price) for sure. I pulled the trigger on an open box one at best buy today.

So far so good.

Really digging the size and weight!

that was like the fastest GAS satisfaction ever, and yes to the size, it's a huge factor for me (went through many 50's) :-P

I'm hoping someone builds a small and friendly 35 f2 like the 50, I wouldnt even ask for high end IQ, good like the 85 would be quite alright.

Slow and noisy, but accurate. It's basically the 85 gm :lol:

Haha yeah. For $170 it was a pretty easy itch to scratch.

Trying to ween myself off the RX1RII and hope does the job.

Its funny where I hike for petros they are very very skittish. But up by Flagstaff and Prescott they are not so scared. There are hunting permits in AZ for them but I have heard they are not as tasty as even a mule deer.

A state biologist told me they are one of the smartest dumbest animals out there. They know how to get through various fences even barbed wire.... they can figure out people and vehicle patterns in a day or so...... but if you startle a herd your best bet is to stand still and wait..... they often run in a circle right back to the danger LOL

SB gorgeous capture. I've not asked but wanted to, are you using the SR app? if so do you mind coughing up details on number of shots.

Good info for me the curious Eriet. All I can tell you is when they want to be fast they are super speedy and clearing a 7 foot fence was nary a thing to them.
