    Beginner APC-S /Full frame lens question

    yes yes yes but saying this just confuses newbies. Just look at the replies in this thread... IMO as clear as mud and adding nothing but the potential for even more confusion. The op asked a relatively simple comparative question and IMO we don't need post after post of in depth nit picking...

    A7 and Olympus Zuiko 50mm f1.8. I think this lens cost £15. Hard at work. Cheap watches, £15 and £17, heavy crops. We went out today, the light was dead and it was raining. No keepers :(

    Beginner APC-S /Full frame lens question

    Just a quick note as I've found the replies confusing... 24mm on a 35mm/ff camera = 24mm FoV. 15mm on an APS-C camera = 15 x 1.6 = 24mm. 24mm on APS-C camera = 24 x 1.6 = 38mm.

    I can't think of much camera related stuff I want to buy so thinking of buying a Jag or LR 4x4. A bit more expensive than an old Rokkor but hey-ho.

    Macro lenses Canon 100mm vs Irix 150mm

    It's pretty normal for macro lens to have more space at the close end than the longer but shooting with my old Sigma it's definitely trickier than I'd like it to be when using it for non close up stuff and I would like more space at the longer end.

    Well there is that but there should be a level playing field in football (haha) and any European teams that in reality possibly don't comply with the financial rules should be punished but in reality that doesn't seem to always happen. Anyway, I support Middlesbrough so obviously I don't know...

    Non Sony interlude... Man City 6 - 0 Watford. Not really all that surprising I suppose and Watford shouldn't feel too bad as they got there and City are capable of doing that to almost anyone so there's not even the suggestion of any shame :D Back to the Sony stuff :D

    I'd say anything Sony related including the A6xxx stuff as plenty of us are interested, even people who don't own one :D and there's the non mirrorless Sony stuff, that should be welcome too. I also like the occasional non Sony stuff, not that it should take over the thread but as a bit of...

    Yup. The G7 I had had a lovely evf, it's such a shame that the GX80 and GX9 have evf's that are relatively poor by todays standards.

    Macro lenses Canon 100mm vs Irix 150mm

    The one thing that could put me off a bit is that there seems to be little space between 3m and infinity which is the problem I'm having wit my current old 50mm macro. How it like in use? Is there enough movement from 3m to infinity to focus on further distances easily?

    I do worry for the future. I don't have children but I've seen what those in my wider family suffer at the hands of the young on social media and it's beyond anything I ever suffered or saw others suffer. The hounding, name calling and bullying seems to have reached levels that make a violent...

    Do we know that he took his life as a direct result of the programme? I thought it had been reported that he'd been hounded on social media and in life with insults and death threats? OK... if he was hounded he was hounded because he and his behaviour had been brought to the attention of the...

    I suppose it depends who we... blame. It seems to have been decided that we'll blame low class confrontational reality tv and ban it and not look at how or why this guy was hounded on social media and in life by people who didn't think about the possible consequences and probably wouldn't care...

    I keep the cost down by buying film era lenses. The cost savings do go out the window a bit though when I end up buying 8 lenses at the same focal length. They're all very slightly different though.

    I have the 35mm f2.8, 55mm f1.8 and 85mm f1.8. It's the 55mm that's getting squeezed out for me and I have thought of selling it but for the few times I use it it's worth it because it is IMO an outstanding lens even if it's 5mm too long :D I bought the 85mm specifically for people shots so...

    I think it's a shame that people feel like this. I think "we" should remind ourselves that it's not the thread, it's the people in it. I know it's easy to get carried away on line and forget we're talking to real people so at least the last couple of pages have made that pretty clear. I don't...

    I often think that a standard range zoom and a fast prime will cover 99.9% of what I want but then I add a macro and a wide and an 85mm and the list of what I want gets longer :D I'll have a lot of admiration for anyone who can identify their needs and stick to them :D

    Haha. It's a picture I've looked at many times but as I usually have a 35 or 50mm lens I wouldn't get the perspective so yesterday I took my GX80 and 45-150mm. All I need now is a day with better light as yesterday the light was just dead and flat and it was raining a bit. With better light the...

    The JK show has done good things. The shows about overcoming adversity and reuniting families have been pretty good even if maybe done better by other shows. The chav bating has lead to the end but it'll be a shame to lose the better bits too.

    The thought never entered my head that this thread could intimidate anyone.

That's a situation to be wary of. But...
