Timely post.I have been looking at them lately. Yes, the IQ is outstanding. Below MTF Chart from Optical Limits.


In Topic: Teleconverters for Nikon FX (D850) camera?

11 March 2023 - 07:54 AM

None of these lenses can be used with the Nikon teleconverters as the rear element sits flush with the lens mount. The front element of the converters protrude in front of the mount.

Kenko converters can be mounted, but they steal quite a bit of image quality.


Here is a compatibility chart for the Nikon converters.


Bummer. That settles that. Thanks for the info and chart.

In Topic: Advise on wide angle lens to pair with a D850

Another choice I would look at is the 24mm 1.8G It has outstanding IQ. The Sigma mention in post #4 is a good alternative.


In Topic: Lens cleaner - which?

20 February 2023 - 09:55 PM

Be aware that the main ingredient for most for lens cleaners is rubbing alcohol. I would recommend blowing/ cleaning with rubbing alcohol (higher the content the content the better)  you can buy 99% if you search for it. If your lens is coated rinsing with distilled water will make it "Factory" clear with NO streaks.

I just got this same backpack a few weeks ago. So far it is a winner. Large enough for all my gear with room for some extras and small enough for carry on. Seems the build is very good.
