First purchase of the 2019 edition of Tokyo Used Photo Gear Frenzy.

Found a 7Artisans 28mm f1.4 and adjourned to a cafe to put it on so this is literally the first shot with it but more to come later in the week.

Shot wide open obviously and, well, it certainly glows.

Lovely, buddy, lovely... : -)

Nikkor 24mm f/2 wide open, at 800 ISO. This is a test shot of the 14bit Lossless Raw setting in Magic Lantern on the 5D Mark III. I was really trying to push the exposure and stress test the codec.

Looks pretty good to me!

Considering the grain from ML raw is so nice, and considering that any compressed delivery format normally kills most texture anyway, I'd say you've got a huge amount of latitude.  Try pushing it in steps as far as ML will let you take it, then grade it like you would for getting levels and saturation etc right, then upload to YT as a private video and see how it turns out.

In other news, here are a few test shots from my new Sun Zoom MC 70-210mm f3.8 lens.  I could tell the moment that it arrived that it was a winner, and I'm sure that after I tell @BTM_Pix how much it cost then the result will be unanimous! 😆😆😆

Images from GH5 raw converted to JPG in post but otherwise untouched...  Apologies for the fading light, so best to ignore slight colour changes.  

70mm f3.8:

and a few random screen grabs from this mornings game:

Overall it seems like a nice lens to use, but because it's not parfocal and I'm not practiced with it, if I'm tracking action and I zoom then I lose focus and don't know which way to go to get it back.  If only my eyes had phase detect and weren't limited to contrast detect!

At first glance I thought that was some sort of Lake Placid Blue coloured fin tailed 50s car with its brake light on !

I wish I had access to an old 50s car... my film could really use it.

If it was more than $5 you were robbed ;)

Looks nice actually but I'm surprised that there isn't a more pronounced difference in the background between f3.8 and f8 at 200mm?

LOL.

I'm assuming it was F8..  the clicks on these lenses are all over the place, some have two clicks per stop, some one click, some have a mixture.  It was 4 clicks from 3.8 to 8, which makes sense in a two-clicks-per-stop sense, and it looked like it was lined up to the number, but who knows.  Maybe it was half a stop faster.

In terms of the quality, I'm pretty happy with it as I don't feel I've lost any IQ from my Minolta primes.  I was concerned as vintage primes are considered to be far better than vintage zooms, but being a fixed aperture zoom I figure this one might have been a premium one, plus the fact that the m43 sensor is only looking at the middle of the image circle and has cropped most the nasties in the corners.

Looking at the footage I take of the players on the field I've concluded that focusing is my biggest challenge, not lens sharpness.  I could make that easier by stopping down, but I do like a bit of background separation, and to do that at any distance requires the lens to be fully open.  I'm often shooting at >100m away from the players, so I need all the help I can get :)

Even taking into account the 400mm FOV equivalence of you having it on an MFT camera, you are still going to be a bit short at those distances with a 200mm to be honest.

Covering football (the real one not the weird variants that all of you colonials have cobbled together ;) ), which, depending on the stadium, will typically have a 130m distance from my position to the other goal requires a fair amount of cropping with a 400mm to get anything meaningful for action at that end.

I think you'd benefit greatly with a lens that ended at 300mm rather than 200mm not just in terms of additional reach but also in terms of separation from the additional compression of the longer focal length.

Sigma have done a 100-300mm f4 in various mounts for many years which, whilst not exactly free, would be ideal if you went that route and is worth keeping an eye out on eBay for.

      I'm looking to swap my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses for the equivalent Canon mountable Zeiss ZE lenses.
      Each of my lenses comes with 16:9 adaptors (which adapt the lenses to EF bodies, with de-clicked aperture and AF confirmation). 
      I have the following ZF.2 lenses: 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/2.0 (Makro Planar), 100mm f/1.4 (Makro Planar).

      I'm really considering making a big upgrade to the URSA, but I've already invested in a fleet of Canon FDs. I've been doing some research on FD to PL mounts without a lot of luck. I know ARRI make an FD adapter to the ARRI mount (PL??) but besides that seems there's zilch out there. Some talk about machining the lenses to fit the new flange but I was hoping someone here knows of something...
