  1. Since switching from Nikon to Fuji, deciding on a suitable macro lens has been something that I have given a lot of thought to. On the Nikon system I had been using a Tamron SP90 which I have had for over 20 years, so the prospect of finding something new was a challenge. One of the objectives of my move to Fuji was building a compact system, so the size and price of the Fuji 80 macro was off-putting. The Fuji 60 macro was a little more tempting, but only goes to 0.5X. In the end, I decided to give the Laowa a try - it is manual focus only but does go to 2X! So what is it like?
  2. Today, I balk at using a prime lens weighing more than 1,000 grams (1 kg.) unless it is a specialized lens (e.g., Nikkor 200mm f/2.0) In the near future, it is possible that we may hear users complained how heavy their 100 grams lens are. https://www.dpreview.com/news/4657125935/a-new-metalens-breakthrough-will-revolutionize-lenses-as-we-know-them

    Nikon 70-210mm f/4-5.6 Review

    Another option to having a more compact Nikon kit would be a 2 lens option. I already have a very good copy of the Nikon 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5, but it lacks in the longer end. Doing research brought me to the conclusion that I needed to check out the 70-210mm f/4-5.6 Reviews everywhere give it rave reviews in IQ and AF capability(although it is claimed that the "D" version focus' faster than the non-D). Can it live up to what others have said about it? Let's find out!! Testing was done on a Nikon Df. 210mm | 1/500 | f/8 : ISO 900

    Nikon 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 Lens Review

    Image © mir.com After my failed attempt to bond with the Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6VR, next lens into the testing queue is an oldie....the Nikon 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 Again, the desire is to find a lens that can be an everyday walk about and useful focal length. 35mm may not seem wide enough for a lot of people, I find that I crave a longer focal length and a narrower field of view than I do wide. There was not a lot of information out there on this lens, but for the price, it was worth the gamble. Majority of the testing was done on

    The CRT Nikkor-O Lens and Images

    A lens that I find remarkable and use quite often is the CRT Nikkor-O, and industrial lens that, when controlled, can produce wondering images. Here is a discussion and dozens of sample images in high-resolution, taken with the high-end Nikon bodies, D3x, D3s, D800E, and D810. Here is the link to the PDF. http://spiritgrooves.libsyn.com/macrostopcom-the-crt-nikkor-o-lens-and-images
  6. Nikonrumors reports about a patent for a Nikon full frame mirrorless les. The lens seems to be what we would think of as a "kit lens", a standard zoom. The lens drawings seem to indicate three possible suggestions for a lens design. http://nikonrumors.com/2014/12/16/interesting-nikon-filed-a-patent-for-a-full-frame-mirrorless-lens.aspx/ Maybe Nikon will start moving in 2015/16?
  7. This legendary lens also performs admirably well on an Olympus camera. Because of the smaller sensor it effectively becomes a long - 210mm f2.5 - telephoto lens. 1. f4 2. f4

    Hello Bjørn, couldn't find any post regarding the new Nikkor. Do you already have one in your hands, got some first impressions?

    remove stuck filter?

    I am unable to remove the filter from my 20-35 f/2.8 and wonder methods you might suggest. It is a B+W UV-Haze and neither it nor the lens show any dings or dints. The filter looks in good condition but I rarely use any filter except a polarizer. A local camera repair shop took a look and didn't give much hope for removing the filter without destroying it the process. Before I go caveman on it I thought I'd ask what you might do.
  10. A few days ago I successfully disassembled and re-greased (images below) a Steinheil Cassarit 50mm f/2.8 that was given to me many years ago with an SLR. The latter (probably an Exacta) was in parts and non-salvageable. The lens screw mount measures 41.8mm externally. A similar one has been listed on ebay for a long time, the front filter thread is 40.5 mm. It has a preset aperture with 11-blades and is nicely round at all settings. So I am now looking for a suitable low cost M42 to F mount adapter (non-optical) to play more with this lens, well aware that it will not focus to infinity. There
