  1. You are in Miami? I am in Alabama, and you are below my state.
  2. Well then, the Sigma Art series of lenses and some of their other lenses will do fine as a replacement of tamron, since all I would need to do would be to use in body stabilization for the prime lenses and optical stabilization for the zoom lenses. Good, so now there would be less worrying about messing up with certain movements and I can still get good auto-focus. Now, the amount of takes would be less and so there would be a great film made in less time with less stress placed on the actors.
  3. I wish the newer g2 tamron lenses were compatible with the Canon C series line of cameras. If the lenses were compatible, I can imagine the image stabilization helping out a lot with funky pan and tilt, odd crane movements, and the difficulties of using a shoulder rig all being helped out with this lens. I can especially imagine when someone would be getting their muscles a bit stiff and vibration-reduction would help out.
  4. I have seen anamorphic smartphone lenses.
  5. I found out that the brass adapter for the EF mount is best suited for the situation and I made a list of OM mount lenses I could use and these will be my back-up lenses and are a lot easier to replace than Edmika FD: OM 50mm F/1.8 (I already own) OM 85mm F/2 OM 28-70 F/2.8 (I already own) OM 70-210 F/3.5 OM to EF Brass adapter
  6. I may go back to buying the Edmika mount lenses though. It's just that I'm sort of impatient with the guy along with many others. He recently brought back up his website.
  7. Thank you all for your support. I have decided to go with trying out one Nikon lens and as an added note I already have a back-up lens, which is my 28-70 F/2.8.
  8. What happened was that the lens was on a dresser and the mount chipped off with the lens when it fell between a bedside and the dresser. The mount broke off and the lens is fine though.
  9. Now then do you all have suggestions for a lens mount adapter that would have a better lock system than the fotodiox one where if you focus on the lens it falls off?
  10. Alright well so far I found Olympus OM lenses to be a good alternative to all of this, but their lenses are not as sharp as the Edmika mount FD lenses only slightly softer, but that is alright. As long as it is not too much soft it won't be so bad.
  11. Edmika closed it's doors and their mounts aren't as reliable as I once thought. I only have a broken mount 35-105 F/3.5 after my camera slid and fell on the ground. Can one of you all help me find an alternative lens for this list of lenses in M42, Old Nikon Mount, and Olympus OM Mount? As for the zoom lenses I am looking for, I'd like there to be a constant zoom aperture, meaning that the aperture does not change if I were to zoom with it. nFD 135 f/2.8 nFD 100mm F/2.8 nFD 85mm f/1.8 nFD 50mm F/1.4 nFD 35mm F/2.8 nFD 28mm F/2 nFD 24mm F/2.8 nFD 35-105mm F/3.5 macro nFD 70-210mm f/4
  12. I'm getting nikkor lenses from now on, either that or Olympus lenses. Maybe I would get m42 mount lenses. I understand the quality of Edmika mount FD lenses look great, but at the moment the lens mount chipped apart from my camera and it fell on the floor. The rear of the lens is made from undurable plastic. Another complaint I have is that it takes too long to get it perfectly just right to mount the Edmika mount requiring a screwdriver with the right amount of precision and timing on a lens. The guy who sells the mounts takes too long to ship the lens mounts as well. The Edmika mounts are only good if you are using them for a short amount of time as over time they wear out. I do not recommend Edmika any more.
  13. Well, Sammy the Sock turned into a serious drama.
