question about takumars

I just got into the world of takumars and so far it's great, but I just have a little question.

When I screw in the lens, it doesn't twist all the way so that the arrow lines up with the middle of the camera. Is this normal? I have the genuine adapter and was just wondering if it would affect inifinity focus or anything like that.

I'm starting to get back into film just for fun and was wondering what types of film I should use. I usually take candids and nature pics.

I heard the fuji superia 400 was good. Any opinions?

I prefer negatives to slide film

I have an external flash that I use in most cases I need a flash, but there are times where I don't have it, but need more light. So I was wondering if anyone had any tips on the best way to use the built in flash on a k10d

From time to time I still like to use my medium format cameras, but the hassle of developing has kept me from shooting more of it. Is there anyway cheap place where I can send my film and have the prints sent back to me?

Does this version save the exif info after converting to jpeg? That's one of the things that I really wanted in the last version.

I don't know if it's what they usually do, but I just got my 17-70 back from them and it actually came with a CD with some test shots. One was from 17mm at 2.8 and the other at 70mm at 4.5. Now my lens is perfect. If you didn't get one then I suggest asking them to send one back with it just to be sure.

Continuous shooting sound

I just noticed that when I'm shooting with the continuous burst mode, I can hear the little motor inside. I was just wondering if this is normal because I never heard it before. Is this normal? I never really payed attention before so I might have just missed it, but I just want to make sure. Thanks

What would you say is the smallest aperture you can focus with. I remember it would get hard to focus past 5.6 because half the split image would turn back. Is it still the same how?

So with takumars, how do you guys normally focus? Doesn't the screen get too dark when you stop down?

which do you think is generally better in terms of pure image quality? I want to start shooting with some cheap primes, but would hate to constantly switch from bayonet to m42 mount. So I would like to stay with one mount. Any advice would be more than appreciated.

Item for Sale
Tamron AF 28-200MM F/3.8-5.6 XR Aspherical (IF) Macro

Item Description
I mislabeled the title of the original thread so I restarted it here to clarify, plus I added some pictures of the lens. I'm selling the tamron 28-200mm aspherical xr if lens. I bought this in like new condition a few months ago from keh and I have taken very good cared of it. I really like this lens, but it doesn't get much use anymore since I got the sigma 17-70mm. Comes with both end caps.

See here: FM Reviews - AF 28-200MM F/3.8-5.6 XR Aspherical (IF) Macro for reviews. I think it's a truly underrated lens. Perfect all around lens if you don't need the wide end.

Please pm if interested. I'll try to post some pics taken with the lens later tonight.

k10d Grip
Posted By furby

Views: 1,642
Hi I just got the grip for the k10d and was wondering if it would be possible to use the af button when shooting horizontal, and by using the shutter when shooting vertical. I disabled the af focus by halfway when shooting vertical and only use the af button, but when shooting vertical it's really hard to reach so I don't have much choice. Is it possible to keep it disabled when shooting horizontal, but on when vertical?

Ok here's my quick test. The first is the orignal image and the rest are the corners. The first 2 crops seem the worst. They are the top 2 corners of the image while the last 2 are the bottom corners. Let me know what you think please. I have a feeling I might just be trippin over nothing

I guess this is for those who have this lens. I just got it and did a quick test and I noticed that the corner sharpness at 17mm is pretty bad wide open. Is this typical of yours? It didn't really get better when I stopped down. Just wondering if I got a bad copy. Thanks

Hey I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this lens. I know there are 2 versions, one is with the filter diameter of 55mm and the other is one with 49mm. I can't seem to find any reviews of the 49mm version. Anyone know anything about it?
