anyone got experience with a 24-105 f4 L? Preferably on a 5DM2.

How is the overall quality? image quality, sharpness, etc

mind posting a couple of photos?

I want to get a new lense but I'm not sure which one to get. I shoot mostly landscape and wildlife sometime. I have a 18-55mm and a 70-300mm. I use a Nikon D3300 since I started only last summer. I've been thinking of getting a 35mm or a 24-70mm. Any other suggestions?

I don't know how a 24-70mm would particularly help you shoot wildlife, so I guess that's for landscape?

What do you want from it that the 18-55mm couldn't do?

Well that's a somewhat shitty analogy. All shoe sizes have the same use - and thus, would not vary with intention but only with foot size. Focal length varies in terms of the *most convenient* use and with further information that would be a totally sensible question.
Of course, you can always shoot 8mm equivalent on LF, then crop down to your required FOV, effectively making all other gear useless, so maybe you're right.

35mm primes generally have almost no distortions and are best used for landscapes and panoramas. Even on a crop sensor.

Got myself a Pentax K-50 (in red, baby!) but now find out the K-mount 31mm lens that is my preferred focal length is £650!!!
The 35mm is nice an cheap but it's a little tight for my liking.
Are there any recommended old lenses with 28mm focal length? Do any of them have autofocus?

If sharpness is in the goals here, I figure he should go with a good prime.

>>2833836
> and are best used for landscapes and panoramas
I don't think that's the case for a 50mm equivalent lens. They're very general purpose.

Wide angle lenses (maybe some wide prime within 8 to 15mm on APS-C?) tend to be mostly used for landscape / astro / environment shots though.

There is the FA 28mm f/2.8 AL, there is a soft variant so be careful.
Alternatively the DA 35/2.4 is a very cheap for it's sharpness and not that much tighter than the 31 or 28mm. Just take a couple steps back.

You mean those starscapes that are marginally relevant to astrophotography?
Landscape panoramas need images with almost no distortions or else the blending lines get blurry and distracting, hence why most panoramas are made with 35mm on FF and APS-C.

Uh, the usual lens distortions -even on these zoom lenses- aren't really a problem?

I don't know what you mean by blur lines - unless you're doing your panoramas manually in photoshop?

> hence why most panoramas are made with 35mm on FF and APS-C.
No, most panoramas are made with wide angle lenses.

Most people don't want to meticulously take like 30 shots on a vibration-free platform and stitch a 600MP or whatever image (it's a lot of work and a decent amount of processing power) to get their VR panorama shot or 180x180 degrees shot or whatever. It's only a sport for people who want very high-res panoramas.

I guess you're right, I should correct this:
Most obvious panorama-specific setups (on a tripod) that I saw out there had wide angle lenses on them.

I guess the actual majority of panorama snapshits are sweep panoramas made with smartphones or APS-C cameras. Not that those have any blurry lines - they just are blurry overall.

Between these two, there are also amateurs (for example the /p/ and flickr crowd) that just make do with whatever APS-C or compact camera or smartphone setup that they already have, but stitch with hugin or photoshop or such to get a better result. They neither use a 35mm nor a wide angle primarily though, it's just all sorts of lenses.

Are you arguing that 35mm is not wide angle? I said it is a good choice for panoramas, even on crop sensor.

It's not on an APS-C because it doesn't cover a 64-84 degrees field of view (I admit to looking the degrees up on WP, wouldn't have remembered that one - unlike remembering that 35mm is the extent of wide angle on a FF camera).

But that wasn't ultimately what I was arguing.

> I said it is a good choice for panoramas, even on crop sensor.
You said most panoramas were made with it.

And I dispute it's a good choice. While it's certainly somehow *possible* to shoot panoramas with a 35mm on an APS-C, I wouldn't buy one for this purpose.

It takes just too many shots and too much stitching (and too much processing power for most people's machines) even with a 180x180 degrees panorama, and you might want to do 360x180 or 360x360.

Would reccommend if you can find it second hand.

That's one of the most common combinations of camera and lens on the planet. Just fucking google it. Stop wasting everyone's time with your specific gear test requests. The shit you want to know is already out there. Just type your questions into the google search bar rather than the 4chan reply box, and you'll already have your answers, comparisons, samples, and charts waiting for you.

The range of focal lengths provided by the lens is dynamic. It's got a lot of zoom, is what he's saying. But at least you aren't ignoring context and throwing your ability to think out the window to be able to jump in and be the first to attack someone for the sake of your tiny penis!

My country also isn't, and we are sharing twice as much trade with the EU as Turkey does.

But it seems like this is some contest winning picture from ~1950, not a recent one. You can probably guess why your two countries weren't included.

Yicam. Cheaper and better video features.

No interchangeable lenses and only some semi-gadgety effect lenses, but it also costs less than one typical lens anyhow.

I need an inexpensive lens for street/portrait photography. Currently have a t3i, noticed that my favorite pictures to take are of random people in the street. I was originally going to get the 85mm f/1.8 because I like the person to fill up most of the frame, but now I'm thinking about getting something more versitile in case I want a bit wider angle for pics like pic related.

The Xiaomi Yicam. It is a better body for video than the 700D.

But of course you only get one fixed lens that isn't as good as what you could stick on a 700D if you had some money for lenses - which I currently assume you don't necessarily do.
