Update: 135mm Lens - Samyang 135mm f2 for E Mount


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/OD230010.JPG

 

 

One of my first post was about using 135mm legacy lenses on mirrorless systems. Since then I've acquired another 135mm lens but not one that can be adapted to all systems. The original post was about legacy lenses easily adapted to modern digital mirrorless systems via a cheap dumb adapter.

This new lens has an FE Sony mount as the Sony native lens selection is rather lacking. I have some A mount lenses but ...

Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/DSC01553f.jpg

I did look at the Zeiss equivalent but I had to pick myself up off the ...

Olympus Pen-F . An Update


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/OD100016.jpg

After my initial setup of the Pen-F I took it out on my normal testing route with the Olympus 14-150 f4.0-5.6 II mounted on it. I also have the original version of this lens and have used it extensively when I've been travelling. I've noticed lately that my original has become de-centered on one side and is quite noticeable when looking closely at the images. The question was, get it repaired or purchase the second ...
