Beautiful pictures guy! I have a question and this is probably not the right thread to ask but you seem to be the experts. I need an adapter for an old Nikkor 50 1.4 non ai lens Ijust picked up. Do the focus confirm ones work correctly or are they hit or miss? Do they justify the price difference? I have a regular one for a couple of my mf lens and I do ok with it most of the time.

And could you explain to me how you use live view to focus? Do you use to just to focus and then back to the viewfinder to take the picture or do you take it from live view. It seems I have read both. Which is the best or does it matter. I have a T2i.

And if any of you have this lens I would love to see some samples from it while I wait for an adapter.

Thanks

I have a couple Nikon adapters for my Vivatars (Nikon mounts). I find the af confirm adaptors useful if I'm using the viewfinder and find them fairly accurate. If you're mainly using live view the non-af adapter are fine and less expensive. I only use live view if the camera is on a tripod and don't switch back to the viewfinder.

i find focus confirm to be a little bit off at times. if you have a camera with a nice viewfinder like 5D2 and use the high precision focus screen, i think you can normally do a better job with your eyes than the focus confirm chip. when it gets too dark for your eyes to focus, the focus confirm chip won't do better either.

however it might be very useful on a smaller viewfinder camera or a camera without the high precision focus screen.

Awesome. I just picked up this lens for peanuts last month. It's touted to be VERY sharp with no distortion. Didn't know the bokeh was so nice either. I'm itching to try it out now...

Thanks, it's a faux HDR from the cemetary about 200 yards from our house.
