    Finally think I found the sweet spot with my old non-AI Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 Prime. f/2 and f/2.8 are so fantastically crisp and produce a lovely radial bokeh. I'm really enjoying using it, and finally realizing how fun it is, though I would really love a 35mm f/1.8 or 1.4 prime as well.

    I'm looking for a medium format outfit like the Mamiya RB67 or RZ67, Hasselblad 500 series etc. On ebay they go pretty cheap like 300-500 bucks with everything you need to start getting awesome landscapes.

    My current kit:

    Canon T2i
    18-55mm IS kit lens
    70-300mm
    85mm f/1.8
    100mm f/2.8 macro

    SB-900 is bigger than a D3000, it must look pretty crazy.

    Since when does the camera used automatically make a landscape "awesome".

    Unless you're making big A0 prints, you hardly need a large format camera anyway. A T2i has more than enough megapickles for A2 prints.

    I sometimes use my SB-800 on a lumix.


    looks like this

    Slightly different lumix, though they're the same size.

    I would like some advice on which lens I should get and whether the price is worth it
    It's either Canon EF 50mm 1.4 or Sigma EX 30mm 1.4.
    I remember a while back that I got a majority voting for the Sigma, but I'm not sure if it's worth the price after all. It's 700SEK or 100$ more.
    So, any thoughts? As far as I know the Sigma is more ideal if I want a more "correct" field of view because it fits better with my sensor which is APS-C 22.3 14.9 mm (1.6x conversion)

    I have the Sigma and I think it's a great lens. Like you said, it behaves like a 'normal' lens. I think you'll love it.

    I presume you can't really say if it's worth the 700SEK/100 dollars or not though, seeing as you haven't tested the Canon one. Thanks anyway

    I finally got something that I was looking for a long time. And no, it's no a Zenit


    Canon FD 55mm f/1.2 S.S.C. ASPHERICAL, next to Canon nFD 85mm f/1.2L by Leevmeister, on Flickr

    The 55mm Aspherical is a legendary lens, being the first Aspherical Canon lens.
    Got 2 f/1.2 FD lenses now, and i'm loving it.
    Also got a FD 35mm f/2 Chrome nose and a Canon New F-1 while being in New York City this christmas.

    I can't wish for anything more.

    So, my mouth has dried. Here are some pictures :D

    In this picture: Crumpler Big Cheese backpack; Vanguard Tracker S tripod; SB-900 Speedlight; (from bottom to top) Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G; Nikkor 30mm f/1.8G and Nikkor 18-55mm f/5.6. Nikon D3000 with vertical grip.


    Just to show how massive the SB-900 is mounted with and without the grip.
    With grip


    Without grip


    This thing looks ridiculous!

    I have the Speelite 430EX II and don't regret it one bit. Of course, you can always get a less expensive one but it may not perform as well as a more expensive one. I spent the money on mine just because of knowing that as I learn more I'll use more and more of its functions. So far that's been holding true.

    Just got my Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4. I'd been a bit pissed this week waiting for it, as it was first listed as a early 8 element version (Zeiss Planar copy) but it changed and dropped in price, so I jumped on it without looking into it more. Now that I have it... The only thing that bothers me is the yellowing due to whatever Pentax coated the glass with (radioactive decay).

    I'm hoping that does it. If not I'm going to see if I can somehow use the UV lamp I have in my chem lab for it...

    Focusing is so smooth too... Weird how it turns opposite every other lens I have though (right for infinity, left for close).

    You'll get used to it after awhile. Heck i'm so used between Nikon and Canon I don't need to think when switching between the two

    I have a Canon EOS 20D and a 35-105mm lens from a Canon EOS Rebel film camera. My dad uses Canon and has been getting into photography as a hobby and has been buying nicer lenses and all the gear, so I usually just steal from him if I need anything special.

    Oh man. The D4 looks sweet.
    Maybe once I'm earning some money I'll buy one...

    Oh dear.
    I did have an interview for the Wimbledon Tennis Champs yesterday. Worked there twice now + prospects of working at the Olympics (the same company who works for Wimbledon tournament won the contract for the Olympics), which would be fucking sweet.

    Hopefully work all the way from June through to Sept. If that's the case, I'll have a shit load of money by the end of summer. Even after buying a camera, I reckon I could have enough for both that and a trip to India. I guess we'll see.

    Also, it's just a pipe dream at the moment, but definitely planning a big trip to the States in the next few years. If any of you US guys are still around, I'll definitely be making any detours to visit you all since I plan to be driving it.

    Anyway. Off to the pub now :D

    Catch you all later.
