X-70 is smaller and lower key than your X-H1, GRII even more.
I would get a separate one that you can keep on you as an every day carry. If you get the GRII, make sure you tape down the flash and use a nice lint and dust free sleeve to keep in your pocket."

X70 is really underrated but whether it’s worth picking up an entirely separate compact instead of a new lens really depends on how/what you shoot

FWIW I love mine and have found it’s perfect for me as a little travel snapper, and using the tilt screen like a WLF changes the way I shoot a lot in a fun way. It’s also great for just setting it on any random surface and easily composing for long exposures like pic related

"Fugg, help me, I think I want a digital again. I shoot a lot of 35mm and some 120, and so most of the time my GR just sits at home. I’m in Japan now and could get it tax free, so that’s a plus.

I’m 99% set on Fuji. How’s the X100F in 2019? I really like it, but it’s already a few years old, so the price for it seems quite steep. I’ve also thought about the X-E3 since it’d be similar but ILC, but it’s already a bit old and ”replaced” by the X-T30, which doesn’t really excite me at all for some reason (had the X-T10 for a year or so). I tend to not change lenses so there’s that, but the option of using the camera for scanning film too is kind of tempting, and the X100F doesn’t have that. My V600 is slow and not that fun.

Now, what I really want is the X-pro2, but it’s too expensive new and probably will get a new model in the near future. Then I’d be able to get the old one for cheaper from people upgrading etc.

Biggest criteria for the camera to me is it being fun and having good ergonomics, i.e. it’s fast and intuitive to use."

I was going with the rule-of-thumb 200k clicks so I assumed it is over its rating.
Still it is a professional body, so unless you actually need one it will be limiting. Lugging that bulk around just for a few snaps of sunsets, birds, flowers or street is something you quickly regret. My friend had a D3 years ago and gave up on photography just because it was heavy and unwieldy. When I asked why did he bought it he answered "it was the best camera"
When I showed him my APS-C setup he immediately said it is much lighter.

I used to play around with a Nikon D5200 with a 35mm 1.8 prime and a 70-300mm Tamron lens years ago;; I really liked the combo, 300mm was a little bit too much tho, 200mm is enough I think... also 35mm was too much, wish it was a little bit wider

any recommendations? I'm open for everything, aps-c, mft, fullframe, whatever

I can spend about 1000-2000€, I don't mind buying used gear

looking for mirrorless, maybe something with a nice retro look to it, like the fuji cameras, x100f for example."

The curvature is needed on mirrorless because of the short flange distance. Sony has been fighting this one a long time and Leica had a problem with it on the M8 as well. The only one who got it right was Ricoh with the M-mount module for the GXR
Sony does this in software and you lose information towards the corners, you just don't see it because the rest of the sensor data gets limited back. You lose light, sharpness, you have fringing and CA increased towards the corners.
The short flange needs curvature because the light hits it at a very shallow angle, it was not a problem with film, but sensor stacks are significantly thicker than film.
Maybe you should use your brain more before you start spewing bullshit."

Yes, and what does an adaptor do? It extends flange distance so optics of lens made for dslr can function as well as it can on mirrorless body!

>>3483522
Small part of it. Many moved from Canon to Sony since they could use their old lenses on it. But the largest amount came from Sony users cheaping out on lenses. Never learning or knowing of optical drawbacks of adapting lenses. Unfortunately this also gave birth to many misconceptions on their side. When some of them found the cash and bought lenses made for the system, they compared them to their performance of adopted lenses on adaptor, and the results are countless stupidities you still hear on the forums."

Year and half ago I bought my first DSLR camera and wanted to buy some new lenses. However, they are pretty expensive for me, most of them. However, my friend that does photography as side job told me to target buy used ones, as well as camera if I would want to go from my crop to full frame. I found shops with used gear and was kinda surprised to find them at half the price or even less. At pawn shop they can cost even less, sometimes 1/10 of the price. My question is - is it really viable option? How to tell that I won't buy something that would break apart? Especially with those at pawn shop since 1/10 of price is suspicious. Or lenses doesn't wear off that easily? What about used cameras?

Thank you for any reply and sorry for being so green."

What I did is I checked the images and did a background check on the seller.
With shops I used reliable ones like SRS Microsystems and Foto-Köberl Graz, they will describe the lens accordingly. Same with KEH, Adorama and B&S in burgerland.
I mostly bought from ebay and a quick background check in the feedback/comments is enough to determine if I trust the seller or not. Plus with ebay you get to have a say if you are wronged in any way."

Im not living in US but I already noticed huge difference between offers in dedicated shops selling new & used photo gear and local equivalent of ebay (where obliviously tarnished gear have often price equal or slightly less to new ones).

What do you mean by checking images? Bringing camera with you and making test photos in case of buying lenses? At one shop owner directly suggested that. Would any problems be visible right away like that?

And what about used cameras? What kind of damage would I expect from normally used camera that was not treated like trash by previous owner?"

d750 is an entry level FF with a lower quality shutter and 1/4000 shutter instead of 1/8000.
build quality is also slightly worse on the d750 while the d850 has a much more "pro" layout.
in short, d750 is consumer grade while the d8xx is "pro" grade.
I beg to differ though, you're not going to get better pictures with one of them than the other and the d750 is smaller and lighter, personally I'd get a d810 though if money is an issue but since you're considering the d850 get that instead since it's an upgrade from the barebones d810, 46MP just seems a little much for my tastes though, it's all preference."

That's why Im asking for opinion. How strange it might sound, poorer people cant afford wasting money and if slight more investments might get much better result, it would give me the reason to fight for it."

>d750 is an entry level FF with a lower quality shutter and 1/4000 shutter instead of 1/8000.
Uh, no. No it's not "entry level FF". The shutter's quality is fine after the recall. Max shutter speed is almost a thing, but if you find yourself needing 1/8k a lot, you're probably doing something very wrong.
>build quality is also slightly worse on the d750 while the d850 has a much more "pro" layout.
wut? The only place there's not magnesium is the front plate which is a carbon reinforced plastic. This isn't a bad thing. Plastics are far better for impacts and most of the reason you see full magnesium bodies is because idiots like you don't realize that and fetishize full metal bodies.
>in short, d750 is consumer grade while the d8xx is "pro" grade.
In short, you're an idiot. Until the D850 came out, the D750 was *the* choice if you didn't need super high resolution and did need low light performance but still needed a fully featured dslr that wasn't the single digit line. The D850 made it to where you didn't automatically have to go D750 if you wanted low light, but it's still preferred if you don't want to deal with massive raw files because muh 8438932832489 megapickles of the D850.
>I beg to differ though, you're not going to get better pictures with one of them than the other and the d750 is smaller and lighter, personally I'd get a d810 though if money is an issue but since you're considering the d850 get that instead since it's an upgrade from the barebones d810, 46MP just seems a little much for my tastes though, it's all preference.
Literally never give anyone buying advice again. You clearly don't know the main differences between the D750, D810, and D850 while idiotically using terms like "consumer," "entry-level," and "pro" in a way that doesn't remotely align with reality."

The only body that's an investment is something like one of the mechanical Leicas. Bodies are disposable, and if you hold onto one for any significant amount of time, you'll lose a third to half of what you spent on it if you go to resell it. Think of it more in terms of how much you're willing to spend to get a certain feature. According to that other anon the D850 has a "much more pro layout" which in reality translates to 2 more buttons on the rear. How much is that worth to you? How many pictures you reckon that you'll miss for want of the 11th and 12th buttons?

If you pare things down, you'll probably find that there's a lot of features that you're not really willing to pay all that much for, and glass is almost always preferable."

Other than that, I dunno. D800/D810 if you are much more of a studio guy than not (biggest factor here would be if your computer can handle these camera's raws, which also is a huge question about the even bigger D850 raw files). D750 if you need better low light/don't have a good enough computer and don't want to get a new one right away. I'm not super familiar with the D800, but I seem to remember that the 810 was mostly quality of life stuff over the 800 (faster processor, better af, and I want to say better raw flexibility, but don't take my word, go look it up).

I honestly wouldn't even consider the D850 if I were you. Any of the other three are more than enough to carry you for years and years. It's worth the price if you've got money you don't care about or can claim it against your taxes or somesuch, but looking for the jump to full frame on a budget? No.

Also, why full frame? Is it useful for the kinds of shooting you're doing or are you shooting something where you'd be better served with one of the higher end crops (D500)?"

Basically what I see for now, 850 cost more than twice for 48 mp instead if 24 and touch screen. Screen is not worth it but I don't know about pixel counts.

Quick searching shows D810 at cost of 6000 pln used so its 2000 (50%) more compared to 750 which translate into 36 mp but loss of wireless connection and articulated screen which are important to me (I wanted wireless master unit since I have flash that can work both as master and slave and I started to really, really like articulated screen if my current D5300).

Unless Im doing very basic mistake here and with having D5300, I should rather invest into lenses."

Full frame because I kinda believe that it would be next step of improvement. Or maybe, again, it won't be and Im about to waste money. When doing photos, Im rarely using tripod since Im more about shooting outside, people in action and the like. But at the same time I often shoot inside buildings and I very often run into problem of low light, almost always shooting at widest aperture I can set at the moment and controlling shutter speed with ISO on aperture mode.

At the same time, Im afraid of prime lenses since they would require zooming with feet and I don't always have that option."

There's nothing better than getting your hands on them and using them like you actually will use them to tell you which will actually give you real improvements over what you have now.

Also, on the wireless flash thing: if you have Nikon stuff, sell that off and get into Yongnuo or Godox. If you shoot manual flash, you can have a three light wireless (as in able to control each light from the controller on your body) setup for around $200."

Sometimes? So using 85mm f/1.8 lens instead of 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 would be better than buying FF camera instead?

Like I said, my main problem is low light and struggling to keep photos without blurr due to shutter speed. The only moments when I use apertures smaller than 5.6 is when I do photos of my plastic models - but then I use tripod, f/11 and 10s delayed shots so times like 1/3 or 1s doesn't matter.

Then I see people photos of birds on FF, 400 iso, 5.6 aperture and whooping 1/500 speed and Im slightly envy since last time when I saw 1/500 was when I went to park in middle of day and middle if summer and sun strong enough to force sunglasses for the whole day."

You definitely did.
>Sometimes? So using 85mm f/1.8 lens instead of 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 would be better than buying FF camera instead?
Well, f/1.8 is what, around 2 stops more than f/3.5 and 3 1/3 stops more light than f/5.6 (I hate trying to count 1/3 stops in my head)? If a new body only gets you 2 stops better low light performance, then once you zoom in much at all, you start losing any kind of advantage in low light situations over using that faster prime.

Sounds like a 24-70 2.8 or 70-200 2.8 (depends on what focal lengths you tend to use, you can go through your past pictures and see) might be more what you're looking for, especially if it has vibration reduction to add in those extra 2-4 stops of image stabilization. I've heard decent things about Tamaron's 70-200.

Also, don't be too afraid to bump up your ISO to the 1600-3200 range. Even without noise reduction, downsampling for web sizes eats up a lot more noise than you'd think."

I often either set 35mm which works as "normal" 55 on crop sensor or go right into maximum 105mm of my lenses. I mentioned 85mm 1.8 since there are reasonably priced Nikkor ones while I couldnt find used models of mentioned Tamron 70-200 2.8 with Nikon mount (and new one cost more than whole D750).

It's just last year at con I tried to catch cosplayers on stage shooting and I had to manually lock 1/125 speed with 105mm and 1600-2200 iso (camera wanted 3200 or more) and noise was pretty big anyway but I definitely didn't want movement blurr and I have rather shaking hands.

Then a 35mm 1.8 and an 85mm 1.8 sounds like it may be your best bet. Keep your zoom for when you have decent light (although I suspect that you'll not really use it once you get used to the sharpness of the two primes compared to it).

>But forgive me newbie question but why its crop only?
The basic version is to get a larger image circle, you have to make a lens larger. To get a smaller one, you make it smaller. On crops, you only have to cover that smaller aps-c sensor, so there's no point in making it bigger and more expensive to make the image circle large enough to cover a full frame sensor.

For most brands (not canon), you can still mount these lenses to a full frame body, but there will be heavy vignetting at best, and a full black circle around the image at worst."

I've not screwed with mf in some time, does fuji actually have lenses that can resolve that kind of detail?
>I'd really like to add some video to my work too - projected grand scale - and this might just be that bridge between a cine cam and photo world with great iq.
No, a medium format camera is not a good camera for video in any serious sense. It'll lack far too many of the features you'll want, plus the price of the lenses involved as working with a 4k frame will have you using what lenses you have for photography will likely be unsuited to what you'll want to do with video. Something like an oly, panny, or sony will be far better.

Yeah, it's a neat body, but I think you're far too excited over a meh feature."

Out of my 8 lenses, three were bought new, and the only reason I got them new instead of used was I was swapping systems to Nikon and got the D810 with 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm bundle for a steep enough discount that two of them were effectively free."

look for a used or Factory Refurbished entry level mirrorless.
Canon M6 M50 Fuji X series, Sony A6k, Olympus omd or panashit G series.
you need to give more input though, each camera does a specific thing, panasonic and canon for vlog and video, sony i a good allrounder olympus and fuji take nice stills etc.
apsc for middle ground, m.43 for cheap lenses and bodies, fullframe the only cheap one is the A7 i doubt you'll find one that low.
You could also go gray market (no warranty from hong kong) but if it's shit your shit out of luck and you'll have to pay return shipping back to hong kong to get a refund."

Well i'm no expert, but panasonics video is crystal clear, G7 is a good cheap option, but Canon has dual pixel autofocus so it's just as good for video. Actually the panasonic G7 and Canon M6/m50 are top for vlogging.
I havent followed up with panasonics lines, i dont know them that well. Maybe another anon would know more, or you could always just watch reviews.
But i do know there is a clear difference with panasonics clarity vs other brands.

I want to get a good camera and one or two lenses for scenery and family pictures. I'd like to be able to take 1080p 60fps videos or better as well. I'd like to see what you guys have to recommend. I'm thinking anything under 2 grand for a starting setup. I'm currently looking at Nikon D7500 or D750 new. I also see a used D810 in my area for 1400.

That's a decent entry level set up. The D3X00 series is a good starting point. It lacks a lot of pro features though so if you end up being really into photography you'll outgrow it rather quickly. A D7X00 will last you a lot longer and they can be had pretty cheaply. The lenses in that kit are ok starting points but a cheap prime like the 35mm f/1.8 is going to produce way better images quite cheaply.

Probably. No good way to tell for sure, but popularity doesn't really mean anything.

It's a value proposition.

Pretty much.
Lenses are far more important than sensor size or bodies. Larger sensors can be optimized for better detail rendition or better low light performance, but for the most part, there's not enough difference there to make the extra costs actually worth it, especially for a beginner, and there are kinds of shooting that many people even prefer shooting crop for over full frame because of stuff like burst rate."

Can someone please convince me why I'm being a dumbass? My Sony is a monster that will stay relevant for years to come. There's little to no added benefit to me buying a Hassy beyond the larger sensor size and ability to use a film back if I want. Why am I even entertaining this idea?

It was an excellent lens in 1993. By today's standards it has a very short zoom range, it's large, heavy, push-pull zoom, and optical performance that isn't up to the same standard as modern f/2.8 zooms. It's probably the best zoom you can get for $150, but honestly I still don't know why anyone would want one. It doesn't do anything well enough to make it stand out. The extra stop or two isn't worth much given modern high ISO performance. New mid-range variable aperture zooms will perform as well or better optically and have a wider zoom range, or a couple of primes would cover the same focal length range and be lighter and faster."

more like they just know that a smaller lens will sell better even if its shitty in the corners.

Correcting vignetting is essentially just exposure compensation applied on a curve instead of to the whole frame, it still cuts your dynamic range and increases noise.

You also have to realize that it won't completely work. You lose aperture control, autofocus, and distance data for 3D metering.

The Mark II has more control over the Mark III, and it still has its hdmi/usb slots.
The Mark iii is a dumbed down version, only get it if you plan on rendering 4k, at that point panasonic is probably better for video.
I just picked up the Mark II with a 14-42mm IIR and the 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 for $499+tax=543.66, and they gave me the full 700 points with the discounts.
I don't know when they'll do the deal again, but they might. If you have amazon card and you buy black on black version, they give you 5% back on the whole purchase so $25, for me i ordered off olympus's website because of the point system they give, it's a little less but if you do all the registrations you get around $20 points, but you have to spend $50+ to use the points, regardless refurbished lenses is worth it, and you get to pick your color.
They still have the deal on their website, killer offer in my opinion. the 40-150mm is an awesome lens.
Btw the EZ lens is a little worse than the IIR in image quality, because pancake, and it's usually $50 more, so avoid it if you don't need the pancake lens.
Oh and Olympus actually puts stuffing in their box unlike crapazon.
>>3486098
They'll give you coupons for pro lenses even if you submit a quote for a camera back in 1993 like the Olympus AZ Zoom.
I didn't see the 45mm prime deal though."

And you think that's a good thing with 20 pounds around 70" above the ground? That's a shitload of torque once that thing starts moving. You're going to need to hang at least 10 pounds from it anyway to get any kind of stability."

You don't use VR while on tripod...things can get bad.

I'm honestly not so much pushing for the wood one so much as questioning your thoughts behind what you've settled on. Also, you can be a bit more flexible about your tripod height as you can usually stack stuff to get height without going to maximum extension. And for video stuff, you don't have to have the entire rig on top of the tripod. You can offload a lot of that shit onto the legs with velcro tape which'll help give you a more stable setup.

Also, I'd actually push you more towards something like this

Use gaffer's tape/get a longer cable and just set it on the ground. The point is mainly just get the damn thing off the tripod head unless it absolutely has to be there.

So would the Robus/Sirui count as bullshit ones. I was also looking at used Arcatech ball heads just because the design seems better.

"I was gonna post in the confession thread but Ii feel this is a better thread to let it out and see if I can get piece of mind.

I want to buy something like a X-T20, X-T30, X-T2 but I know the high iso noise will kill me since I like to go low light without tripods (think alleyways, churches). X-T3 with a lens is out of budget.

So thinking of used 6D I, D610, maybe even used D750, but it haunts me that I'll probably not gonna take them with me everywhere like I could with a mirrorless.

A7III is definitely too expensive and A7II does seem noisier than apsc at some point..

Don't really care for m4/3.

I'm ok having a great body + standard 50mm I've been saving up money and I'll have $1500 for a camera + lens combo at the end of the year, but I know I have to sacrifice something somewhere and it kills me.

Yeah, though it seems to weight less, easier on the neck and discreeter overall.
