  1. Hello, I would like to have a book printed for personal use that includes photos I have taken during the pandemic. The last service I used was Blurb, but that was about 7 years ago. What book printing services would you recommend? The feature I care most about is high quality photo printing. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
  2. Thanks everyone for the advice. I am leaning toward getting the Epson P800. I would place it on a table that is 20 inches wide but flush against the wall. Would that work? Or do I need more space at the rear of the printer? Also, does the printer work with the latest Mac software, Catalina? Thanks again in advance for your help.
  3. I would like to buy a photo printer to start printing my photos at home. Many of the prints will be black and white photos, although some will be color photos. I likely will not make prints larger than 8 inches by 10 inches. I have limited space for the printer, and will probably use the printer once or twice per month. I would be interested in recommendations for a printer that will not get clogged as a result of infrequent use and is unlikely to require much service. I will be using the printer with a Mac running Catalina. I have read about the Epson P400, P600 and P800 and the Canon Pro-10
  4. Thanks. So the SL zoom outperforms the M and R wide angle primes (albeit with a smaller maximum aperture than some of the primes)?
  5. I would be interested in what people think of very wide angle R or M lenses on the SL/SL2. How does the rendering of the second version of the R 19mm lens on the SL/SL2 compare with the rendering of the more modern 21mm M lenses or the WATE? Thanks.
  6. Another great relatively inexpensive lens, while not quite a 35mm, is the Leica 40/2 or Rokkor 40/2 originally for the Leica CL and Leitz Minolta CL. The later Rokkor 40/2 for the Minolta CLE is said by some to be even better. These lenses weigh very little, are very compact, and are capable of producing very fine images.
  7. Just to add to the list, the two component parts of the hood for my 35mm lens separated and the dealer replaced the hood.
  8. 28+50 would be my choice as well. You can crop if necessary to get 40mm frame or 75mm frame (or 90mm if you are not printing large prints).
  9. Thank you. That suggests that as a practical matter, having the ROM version of one of these zoom lenses doesn’t matter much for purposes of digital corrections of lens aberrations, but the ROM version might be helpful use with a flash or for having focal length available on exif data. If anyone has experience with the Kyocera 80-200 in this regard, it would be interesting to hear about it.
  10. I would like to follow up on this topic. It appears that 35-70 f/4 and 80-200 f/4 Kyocera zooms with ROM contacts provide focal length information to the SL when used in connection with the R to T adapter. Has anyone ascertained whether the in-camera corrections vary depending on the focal length used? Relatedly, is there any improvement to the quality of the file when one uses a ROM version of one of these lenses? Or is the file the same regardless of whether one uses a ROM version of the lens or a non-ROM version of the lens if, in the case of the non-ROM lens, one manually inputs the lens t
