In Topic: Wider option for A7RII

01 May 2019 - 01:27 PM

Hi Phil,
is there any optical change if the 28mm is used on a DX camera?
Clearly the lens is longer, but does it affect the optical combination with the wet lenses?

For sure the angle of view will be narrower, but will the corner quality be still better?
Or will the longer lens make problems with the shorter calculated wet lenses?


In Topic: AF seems to be hunting on Nikon 105mm 2.8G

01 May 2019 - 01:07 PM

have the Nikon 60mm AFs, the Nikon 70 - 180mm zoom macro lens AFd and the Sigma 105mm macro OS.
The AFs is sometimes hunting, the AFd is slow, and the Sigma is great.
Used earlier on a D300 and now D500 and D750.
Fast af is good, but if it hunts fast, it makes no sense....


In Topic: Scarcity of Z330 strobes (still)?

04 April 2019 - 11:39 AM

bought one for my girl friend,
she is using only a single strobe, 
so she wanted it a bit stronger than her old Z240....
Worked well the hole trip.

I was using a pair of Z240s, fine as well, as long as the Led trigger worked......

In Topic: Fish ID

27 March 2019 - 01:29 PM

young damsel fishes are hard to id....
Because you said Peru, 
Chromis alta?
The Saphir Demoisell would be Chrysiptera cyanea,
but my book is old ;-)) still wrong side of the ocean...
Microspathodon dorsalis?

The problem is as well that some names / failies were changed after genetic analysis...

Good luck,
