    Looking to purchase my first RF lens.

    Hey y'all, I am looking to get my first RF glass and I am either going to sell my EF50 1.2L and my 100mm F.28 L to fund an 85mm 1.2 RF or I can just sell the EF 50 and buy the 50 RF. If I go with the 85 RF I will only have my 35 1.4 L left over, and if I go with the 50mm RF I will have both the...

    Question on Portra400 film with Minolta film camera

    Hello! I recently purchased a Minolta Xg1 camera. I believe the lens I have is 50mm? Here are the details to my purchase: Minolta XG-1 camera with 50mm F1.7 MD-Rokkor-X and Vivitar 75-300mm F4.5/5.6 macro zoom and brand new Minolta 118X flash. I'm guessing I can't use portra400 film with these...

    Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens

    Found this little gem at Goodwill, yesterday. Pretty dirty and missing the caps. Had a Hoya UV filter on it, so it kept the front clean. But for the price, I couldn't pass it up. I've since cleaned it, and tested it out. It's really well constructed. Very surprised at how close you can focus...

    Nifty fifty STM - focus issues, or human error?

    I have a question for users experienced with fast primes. Today, I tried to test AF with my 700D (T5i) and my two lenses: - EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS STM - EF 50mm 1.8 STM I noticed an issue with the 50mm. When I open up the aperture to the max, the AF jumps a bit on every other photo. But...

    Need Help Identifying Model of Argus Film Camera

    I found this Argus in an antique store the other day and was considering purchasing it. There were no clear model indicators on it and I haven't been able to find it online. The lens is a f/3.5 50mm Coated Cintar. If anyone knows the model, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    What prime next?

    Is a 50mm lens worth it for portraits?

    I have an older camera, the Nikon D5000. I currently only use the two lens that I received with the kit (18-55, 55-200). I am still working on learning everything, but want to know if the 50mm or 35mm (with the autofocus since that is what works on my camera) would help me improve my portraits...
