Re: Nik Software

Dave - I believe to get Nik working on the latest Apple operating system & hardware you need to pay for the upgrade (or so my Apple-toting friends tell me, if I understood them correctly).

It all...

Re: F1.2 pro glass

Yes, the 30mm is also a good competitor to the Pan-Leica 25mm f1.4, being also a lot cheaper (although it is certainly a lot bigger as well).

Re: Using the P mode?

Re: The QUEEN VICTORIA BUILDING Sydney

There are some lovely images there.
My only other comment is that it's a shame the first is populated by people in modern dress - it needs a few gents in top hats and ladies in bussles :D

Re: The beginning of Autumn

2 and 3 for me. Excellent.
I think I might have cropped 5% off the bottom of no. 2 if it were mine, but I suspect others would say that little bit of space anchors the image.

Re: More from Photokina

Yes, I agree. Image quality of the 4mm will be crucial so it'll be interesting to see some independent reviews.

I think the 10-25 is really a video lens.

Laowa are great: they had a lovely...

Re: More from Photokina

Yes, the Panny weight demo makes the point, but is very vulnerable to further criticisms, too.

Not only the geeky rathole about 'equivalence' (which I'm not going near), but more significantly...

Great, they have a sale.

I used something similar when I had various British sports cars with early electric windows (e.g. 1972 Lotus Elan +2) where the door motors weren't powerful enough to...

Re: Architectural Photography Awards 2018

A nice set of images.
They don't seem to hang them anywhere except at the show in Amsterdam - a shame, since seeing this sort of detailed image in the flesh is always worthwhile.

Re: Lens service advice/experience?

Sorted, many thanks *chr

The hood felt slightly gritty on first moving, and with a bit of gentle turing and sliding a couple of tiny pieces of Okavango grit came out, and it's now fine.

Thanks...

Re: Lens service advice/experience?

Worth a go, thanks.
I'll get the Management's equipment in to (gentle) action tomorrow. If it works and what I assume is grit cleared out, I'm certainly happy to see if the connection problem...

Sure will, but since we only landed at Heathrow at 05.30 yesterday it's probably going to take me a little while to get to that stage! Actually I'll post links to my web pages - that saves ages...

Re: Lens service advice/experience?

Good thinking, thanks.
I've used them for lots of hard-to-find spares over the years, but only once for a repair (when I threw my OM-1 down Helvellyn and cracked a viewfinder element :eek: ).

Laowa are also going to be producing lenses for the GFX range of medium format, 50Mp, Fujis. On the basis of the performance of my 7.5mm f2 for m4/3 I'd say they were currently rocking.

Re: BMW drivers won't like this - or maybe they won't care!

Interesting.
I've driven a couple of hire-car Minis, and they just felt like smaller versions of the 3-series (I did find them very joggly on poor roads, though).

Maybe because I've owned 3...

Liz Truss would probably like to mark the occasion by giving us all a bit of plastic-wrapped Cheddar.
