1337 just got a takumar 200mm f3.5 for $30. 18 aperture bladessick dude! Let me know how it is!
p.hawks sick dude! Let me know how it is! Anyone know of any 300 or above primes? Don't have to be super fast or anything, just want to see whats out there.I love it so far, used it to shoot a little of my brothers lacrosse game. Just going through, I kind of liked this one, not perfect, but still a decent example shot.
Balto just got a takumar 200mm f3.5 for $30. 18 aperture bladesHave the super tak version of this, never actually used it lol
Balto I'm sure you could rig something up with some bellows....That would be awkward at best lol
alexat955 bumper cars. anyone know anything about the vivitar 75-205 3.8? Theres a 2-ring m42 mount version at a thrift store near me for $50 and im trying to decide whether or not to pick it up. seems like a decent price and a decently good lensserial starts with a 22 but its not the push pull, it has separate zoom and focus rings.
alexat955 Holy shit balls that lens is huge. On another note, I've just come across a Tokina 80-200mm f/4 for 50$ on CL. Worth it? Anybody used that lens? I read some pretty good reviews. And it's a Canon Bayonet mount so I would think it's the same as a FD mountIf it's actually FD it isn't good for adapting to EOS. what camera do you have?
alexat955 I've got a t2i right now which I know isn't the best with FD mounts, but still do-able. But I'm upgrading to a GH2 soon which is M4\3 and will be just fineWith a glass adapter which sucks. Get it for when you upgrade though it'll be super tele haha
p.hawks Yeah that's the main reason I was gonna get it anyways, but I've seen some glassless adapters for FD to EOS, will the focusing get THAT fucked or is it just really infinity focusing that becomes impossible. Like will it be usable for macro only or still usable for normal stuff.it will be just like a macro lens. Whatever the difference is between the flange distance of the EF mount and the fd mount is plus the adapter thickness is the same as adding that thick of a macro ring to the EF version of that lens. So you will have a decent macro, and then when you get a gh2, you will have a great tele/super tele zoom (160-400 equivalent, much further in crop mode depending on 1080p or 720p).
1337 can anyone recommend me a 24 or 28 for under $100? Gonna be mounting it on my t2i, have a helios 58mm and love it to death - just looking for something wider.Soligor 28 2.8 nikon mount. great sharp lens with good bokeh. it's not super fast but I loved mine.
alexat955 Soligor 28 2.8 nikon mount. great sharp lens with good bokeh. it's not super fast but I loved mine.when did you become a mod?!?
WildBANimal God... If only it was easier to do this conversion haha. I have so much sweet minolta rokkor-X glass. It still works better than FD with an adapter though - much sharper from my experience - even though it still uses an extra lens.. http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/319477_419162658129658_98929702_n.jpg Oh well. In the meantime I have heaps of gorgeous m42 screwmount pentax glass. Works beautiful.oops.
DIX~ One of my friends who's late father was a wildlife photographer just found this between his dad's stuff. THE MOTHERFUCKING 1200mm f/11 ED. This lens is so beastly you grow a third testicle on your chest, and hair on your eyeballs when you use it. It's a ridiculous 90cm long (3 feet) (with Focusing Unit) And it Weights a bloody 6,1kg (13.5 pounds) (not his or mine pics.) I'm so gonna beg him to lend it to me.Holy fucking fuck
TheGreen can anyone recommend me a 24 or 28 for under $100? Gonna be mounting it on my t2i, have a helios 58mm and love it to death - just looking for something wider.I'm buying a Yashica ML 28mm f2.8 this thursday, from what I've read, it's a great lens, and I found it for 40$. I'll post my results here but it might be a while since I need to order an adapter from China.
TijmenDal can anyone recommend me a 24 or 28 for under $100? Gonna be mounting it on my t2i, have a helios 58mm and love it to death - just looking for something wider.Olympus Zuiko 28mm f/3.5
TijmenDal I really want to see how these would work for video when I get my Hassy... Anyone else tried out MF lenses on 35mm format DSLRs?What Hasselblad you're going to get?
WildBANimal What Hasselblad you're going to get?My uncle's old 500c/m
TijmenDal My uncle's old 500c/mCan't say I'm not jealous.
TijmenDal the takumar ones are different, there's something about a radioactive coating that gives it that special lookNah. Takumars and Super-Takumars are made with glass with thorium in it, wich yellows when not in the light. That just warms the picture, which I don't like personally, but you can easily de-yellow by putting it under a lamp for a day.
WildBANimal is there any vintage UWA lenses?Nikon made a really nice 20mm back in the day.. You can sometimes find them for pretty affordable too, considering their focal length..
Mag Nikon made a really nice 20mm back in the day.. You can sometimes find them for pretty affordable too, considering their focal length..Thanks but I meant like 15mm or less.
alexat955 Thanks but I meant like 15mm or less.Nope. They didn't need anything wider than 15 because crop sensors didn't exist
Mag Nope. They didn't need anything wider than 15 because crop sensors didn't existAh, that makes sense, annoying though, guess that's why all uwa's are so much more.
