Manual focusing on this bad boy is amazing but I haven't really needed it yet.

I don't think £ for £ the Leica is worth it. I got the Fuji from strong recommendations, uka recommended me it before I mentioned the camera brand I was considering.
Aww he wants one? Ha bet he is jealous. I'll have to give it a play.

The stuff from leicas look soooooo nice though, but I do know it costs an arm and a leg in comparison.

The lenses pricey? It sounds a bit like those mini dslrs they were coming out with but better.

well technically they're relatively cheaper than DSLR lenses. I'm ever so tempted to rock a interchangeable lens one.. but the 23mm f2.0 lens serves me well and makes me move around more / play with composition

Back home so here's a post processed one:

Such a raging hassle sometimes to get the light tent up for product shots

it isn't full frame so pretty much a 35mm equiv. I rock a 23mm on my Fuji X100s and it's a nice focal length to work with, not wide to be honest, though i'm used to 17mm on full frame kinda wide

I was all ready to do this July photo a day challenge then I fucking dropped my camera. On the lens, in its' hugely padded bag and it wasn't enough. The lens won't come out to zoom and makes various clicking noises, the camera is not under warranty anymore so when I go to get it fixed I'm expecting it to be a whopper

Decided to go for the Canon 50mm f1.8 prime lens and the Sigma AF 70-300mm APO lenses for the birthday. Realised I was owed money so can afford the Canon, and other photographer friends really rated the Sigma. Looking forward to the start of next month now haha.

what is flickr's max upload size now...? I tried to upload an unedited photo, 2.7mb or so, and it said it was too big why give me a terrabyte of space and then limit file size?


also i think i want to just shoot in b&w all the time. i always like my b&w shots the best. colour is distracting.

Hi guys, i have a question. I'm using a Nikkon 18-200 lens and is fantastic, they give me a lot of range, but the pictures aren't exactly crystal clear. I read with a fixed lens (50 mm or so) the images will have much more quality. żIs that true?

essentially I believe that's because the of the 18-200's f/stop, 3.5-5.6? meaning that at 18mm it's maximum aperture is 3.5 and 200 it's 5.6. lenses aren't designed to be their clearest at their widest aperture so at 18mm it'll be sharpest around f/8 and at 200mm at f/11 (roughly). whereas something like a 50mm 1.8 will be sharpest at f/2.8, allowing far more light in and more of that sexy bokeh. I'm not a fan of those one zoom fits all style lenses like the 18-200, you're just sacrificing too much in terms of quality/light in order to gain a wide and tele lens in one, which does neither effectively.
i'm sure there're people who can do a better job of explaining that with more experience, but that seems to be what i've gathered.
edit: new page, gotta start with a photo

Wow, many thanks! Your explanation is fantastic, that's all i needed.

The 18-200 lens are very useful for some works, when you need to put the range and the quantity over the quality, but for other especific things (aka clear pictures) i think i will buy new gear, when i can afford it, of course.
