Panasonic/Sigma L cameras + Third Party Lens Image Thread

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

As the Photoforums will remain open to images taken with Leica gear only, this thread gives members the opportunity to display their images taken with L-mount cameras and third-party (i.e. non Panasonic/Leica/Sigma) lenses. There will be another thread for images taken with Panasonic/Sigma cameras and their native  lenses.

A snap with the S1R; colours very much SL-like (good) and fine sharpness. The latter is not seen in this image, but the details at 100 % is quite impressive. S1R + Nikkor 400mm f2.8E at f5.6.

Let's face it, with some subjects (not this one) there is insufficient DOF to get both the nose and an eye in focus.  One has to choose.  😁

Mike, 

Maybe too sharp?  Hmmmmm...perhaps I should look into the 400 DO.  My Canon 500 f/4 is first generation, as are the teleconverters.  I will be interested in hearing more about your experience with your new setup. 

I was using a tripod In this instance since the lens is a brute, and so I turned off stabilization on both the lens and the camera. I will try to run some tests tomorrow evening with the four options: both off, both on, camera on/lens off, and lens on/camera off.   I will report what I find. 

Thanks, 

Robert

To illustrate my comment about "too sharp?", here's a test shot with the Canon 400mm f4 DO II on the S1r with the Sigma MC-21 adapter.

Shot hand held @ ISO 320  1/1000s f5.6  -JPEG straight out of the camera.

@michaliI like the look, the sharpness, and the smooth bokeh.  It appears you were using the 1.4 teleconverter.  Do you find any degradation at all with it?

Robert, no degradation whatsoever with the 1.4x converter, I'm using the vers. III. So far, I'm impressed with the image quality of this combination.

I'm off to Europe tomorrow for a couple of weeks, I'm taking the M10. I won't get a chance to test the S1r & Canon 400mm in the bush until the end of July....

Best,

Mike

I tested image stabilization of the S1R and Canon 500 f/4.0 on a tripod under all four options: (1) stabilization off for both camera and lens, (2) on for both, (3) stabilization on for the camera, off for the lens, and (4) vice versa.  In my eyes, I see no difference in any of the four images.  If my limited testing is correct, then  the S1R is not affected by what’s called a feedback loop, in which the camera’s IS system essentially detects its own vibrations and starts moving around in an effort to compensate, even when the camera body is completely still.

Further testing is needed with other lenses, but If this test result holds true, then stabilization could be switched on and left on for both tripod and hand-held use.

Spring's arriving in the S Hemisphere, I've been watching this Masked Weaver in my garden over the past couple of days building a nest. He expends an incredible amount of energy and effort as he weaves the nest with his beak and claws. It takes him about 2 days to build a nest from start to finish. 

The female will then come along and inspect the nest. If she doesn't like it she rips it apart, and the poor guy has to start all over again.....he'll build 3 or 4 nests over several days.

Final product after 2 days. I'm always amazed at how well built these nests are, they normally survive storms and strong winds.

S1 + Canon 70-200 f4 + Sigma MC-21 Adapter

This was some sort of an AF Test. The MC-21 Adapter does only support AF-S  but still it was focussing on the plane fast enough. One field AF did not work. Used the zone(oval) mode.
