What is the best drill bit? (Sarcasm )

1/2" drill bits are fast and good but be careful if you buy them online I have seen 1/2" bits that are actually 1 1/2" and some that are 1/1.2". The 1/2' bits are not always sharp but a swirly soft bit can make for a glamorous hole.

Macro+Infinity Focusing Russian 50mm f1.2 Lens for $50 DIY Hack..For A6000

Thanks. Yeah I was pushing this lens through macro extension tubes, adapters, step up rings, hoods, macro bellows until I got this combo which worked really well, . I was planning on cutting it in half and adding an aperture but then thought, what's the point..I have a Pentax-A 1.2/50m and lots of quickish 50mm lenses.

Well I ordered a Russian 50mm 1.2 projector lens and set about digging through my my bits and bobbles to figure out how to make it a fully focusing lens for my aps-c Sony a6000. It focuses to infinity and is also macro. The aperture goes from f1.2 to f1:1.2(lol) Lens "RO 109 50mm 1.2" Here is a video wait for samples at the end

Thanks. I've tried the mono-pod at airshows and I find it's a hindrance when I am trying to shoot straight up. I have added a mount extension onto this lens, I find it is helpfull on tripod/monopod and focusing when handheld.

Buy the A6000 Body only and then buy the Sony SELP18105G E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS it is very good. Even after buying these she will still have $300+ to get another lens rather than just buying the A6500 body. The sony kit lens is a turd I bought my a6000 and sold the kit lens.

Most of Sony aps-c lenses are less expensive or equal in price to Fuji aps-c lenses. The reason why Pentax can sell aps-c lenses cheaper is because their cheaper lenses don't have the SDM focus by contact systems and all sony and fuji focus by lens motor. The ones that have SDM are all higher end and are in line mostly with fuji and sony prices. Personally I dont mind screw drive. I use it on my sony and my pentax.

Mystery Lens Mount Identification?

The Fringing is very similar between the 2 lenses. However the 60-300mm eliminates the need for a bag full of standard to long teles and macros because it is sharp all the way through the focal range. It can also do 1:1.55 Magnification at <10cm
Here is an unsharpened crop of the first image in my other post which demonstrates the resolution of this lens at 500iso shot with 60-300mm @300mm on an apc-s camera

You are better off finding a 60-300mm 23A it is far better than this lens and faster at the long end at f5.4 compared to the 54B f5.6
here it is wide open at 300mm

I think this one is f 8

Who says it cant? Sony has weather sealing and lists the same operating temperatures as 5d and 1dxmkii. Ive shot my A7 in rain and snow and as low as -20C and Im sure the A9 is probably better built than my A7
