Thanks, it was a canon 2xiii and I think a tamron 1.4. I tried mounting both canon extenders but they didn't fit


I like to shoot things...sometimes with a camera!

@DigitalTuned it's a generic FD to RF adapter from China via ebay. Like the EOS to RF adapter, it's just an empty tube of the right length, with a collar to activate the FD aperture ring on the lens.

The most interesting thing so far is that DPP, and the on-camera display, show the focus area as a focus point for shots with a manual focus non-communicating lens.

I was thinking to get this one I have a few FD lenses that I can play with

I need to get one of those invisibility cloaks like you and Jeff use! I have zero luck with owls as I notice them as they fly off.

This is actually my first barred owl, so I’m pretty happy about this encounter today.

I just watched a Thomas Heaton video. He was comparing the D850 to the 5DIV. You will be surprised of what he says. I know, why did I post this here? Well his comments about real world use as apposed to charts made me giggle since it's what I said earlier in this thread. He also said something I've said and suggest, rent before you buy! Sorry, but I find it relative to this thread with a few that have to quote charts or compare to other cameras. Enjoy the new R, it's yours so it's better then the one you dont own. Keep up with the pictures, they look awesome. https://youtu.be/oNzIR​L0j52Q (external link)



I just watched Thomas Heatons latest video and it seems he actually apologises for his comments on the R (a few minutes in he says you would be lucky to have the R) and the D850, It seems he has seen the light and realised too much is made of the cameras and not the actual photography. Im glad because i always have loved his channel, I was getting worried he would become just another gear knob head commenting on pixels and dynamic range and viewfinders :-P In the end I still maintain its more about the photography than the gear and too much is made of gear these days. Enjoy your gear, great if you can get the latest and greatest, have fun. Happy new year all, I enjoy looking at your images

I actually just watched that whole thing too. I was so bitterly disappointed when he started this whole gear thing. His was one of a few channels that I could tune into to enjoy something of the results or the creative process of photography. I'm glad he seems to have found his bearings. Ted Forbes's channel (The art of Photography) was another good channel till he jumped on the gear bandwagon. Unfortunately I've unsubscribed from so many good channels because they're promoting gear that I've got very few left.

You don't want that one - any FD to EF adapter will have a cheap optical correction element which reduces image quality. This is because the flange distance for FD was less than EF, perhaps to prevent the use of simple adapters when EF was introduced in 1987.

You want a direct adapter from FD to RF; the flange distance for RF is much lower than either FD or EF, so a simple tube adapter can be used with no impact on image quality. There had been one on Amazon for about $18 a week or two back, but I don't see them now - your only choice appears to be ebay from china and waiting 3-4 weeks. There are lots of them; this is just one example: https://www.ebay.com …g4AAOSwAFFb-5uH:rk:2:pf:0 (external link)

I have not seen it as yet, but at the end of the D850 video he was starting to say the same thing.

Gear for the most part is a personal need, what's best for one person might be different for you. The Camera doesn't frame the shot, hike that mountain, cross that stream or set it's own settings we do all that. what makes a photo great is what the photog sees and conveys. Any camera can do that as long as you take the time to learn the camera!

I just look forward to the time I have the funds for the R, until then I'll just lerk here and drool.:-)


Cheers,

yeah I get that, I do a lot of drooling over lenses :lol: also quite taken with the new Fuji XT3 but for me right now any new gear is out of the question sadly. I mainly just love to look at peoples work on the subjects that interest me regardless of camera or brand

I wasn’t sure about posting “graphic” photos in this thread, so started a new one with shots taken during my wife’s eyelid surgery this morning.

Nothing too gory or bloody, but I know some folks are very sensitive to those things - you’ve been warned ;-)a

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18781850

Small size/weight of the R and the flippy screen made these shots easy to do one-handed holding over my head.

Will post some updates as she heals. Dr. said ROG expect some bruising/swelling for a few days. Go back in one week for check up and removal of stitches.

Just posted my 5D4 for sale... sad day, as I thought that it was to be the last camera I’d purchase for years to come, but the R and mirrorless capability is just too good to ignore. Over the Christmas break, the R consistently brought home shot after shot, with barely any misses. Such a delight to use.

For the most part the R can do what the 5D4 does, and for everything else I have the 1DX2 (and 80D).

I am seriously considering doing the same. While I don’t have a 1DX, I do have an 80D and I see it filling in nicely for R shortcomings where there is a lot of overlap with the 5D4.

Not in a position of “need” to sell, but thinking may as well before it depreciates any more.
