This may not be of much help to you, but here is a link to a small local casino I shot once to give you an idea of the types of images I set up to support the casinos games and services.

https://www.mikeoria.com/p1027422461

I cannot permit you to use any of these, unfortunately, but perhaps they will help you create a concise shot list if you decide to visit a physical Casino to grab some content.

Good luck and as others have said, I hope you are being paid for this work.

fwiw, 67 M*300/4 is a gorgeous piece of glass. manual focus and heavy, but IQ is really great.

this is pretty much my application too. if there is salt spray or swirling sand, I may use a clear protection filter. otherwise, i definitely do not want the ghost effects or extra reflection in my night shots such as cityscapes.

i have at least 2 lenses that are heavier in my 645 rig...this thing is quite a delight by comparison, lol.

budget please?

I personally sold off everything I had over 77mm(70-200, 105, 135, 200, 300) when i got the DFA150-450.

i pretty much had too...due to the price.

thanks sir!




stephen, i really appreciate your words. These men and women do work very hard to fill those boxes. Some mornings, the fields are wet and i know they are standing in wet muddy fields to get the work done. I also look around and notice the complete absence of any shade whatsoever. It is simply not possible to cool off under a tree for a moment during the workday.

I've experienced the issue when using the 67 M300/4 adapted to the 645Z, and relieved the issue by painting inner surfaces of the adaptor with matte black spray paint(applied with a brush).
I believe I have once or twice experienced same with the Cosina 55/1.2 but use it so rarely these days that I simply grabbed another fast 50 when i began to see the issue happening on a shoot.
I've concluded there are so many different applications and alternative ways to use a lens, that a lens maker may not be able to plan for every possibility.

Manzur,
congrats if you decide to purchase this rig. Not sure if those are the FA or A versions, but I have experience with the A75/2.8 which is a good solid performer with good contrast and color. I also use the A120/4 which is very sharp and great for landscape and macros, IMO, but not as strong for portrait bokeh, IMO. The 150/2.8, IMO does beautiful head and shoulders portrait rendering, IMO, but could be out of your purchasing range as you stated.

very interesting. i got 4/6 or 66% correct, which is statistically not significant, as expected. The greater point has been proven which is generally speaking, nobody can look at an image online and recognize "the look" of full frame. There are way too many posts out there suggesting otherwise; thanks for this little reality check.

I am still happy to keep using my K3II, as I don't need no stinkin' K1. ha!
