Comments: 33, on the topic: Announcement: Nikon Nikkor Z 24mm 1: 1.8 S

  • Arkady Shapoval

    24-35-50-85, the whole line with 1.8 ((

    • Michael

      Evidently, the development dragged on ...

      • Arkady Shapoval

        Nikon Nikkor Z 1: 0.95 Noct has been announcing for two years, but in fact it is not there yet.

        • Michael

          Along the way, it’s still just a lure, and the production model will not appear soon. So we switched to that simpler

          • Arkady Shapoval

            It’s manual ... rather, just to show the capabilities of the mount.
            The question is, which is better? Manual 58/1 or autofocus 50 / 1.2, which Canon already has?
            Those who want a super manual, for those who have long had a Zeiss 55 / 1.4 and Leica 50 / 0.95

            • Michael

              Of course, better autofocus. Moreover, there are excellent manuals indicated by you for fans. I wonder how AF will behave with such a large aperture? Here is the question)

              • Arkady Shapoval

                From 1.2 Canon has everything okay (in the case of the mirrorless version).

    • @hvalsky

      And this is ideal, the 1.8 range. These glasses are lighter, sharper, more technologically advanced than would be the same 1.4 and there are 1.4 at the moment. Which perfectly justifies the general concept of the BZK. This is a new optics, and not the old one with an extended trunk, because the old one has not gone anywhere and you can use the entire line through the adapter without discounts. It works perfectly. Why is there no screwdriver in the adapter? Everything is also correct. Because it is an outdated technology, overweight and the cost of the adapter. A line of 1.4 and I did not like the ZK because of the weight, size and cost.

      Aperture 1.8 paired with an excellent stabilizing matrix allows you to shoot in any directional lighting conditions. One candle is enough.

      Why did 24-70 f4? Because it turned out the perfect super-compact / lightweight / sharp / inexpensive lens with zero distortion for all focal. He has no alternatives. The full-frame AFK camera with universal zoom glass can be worn with you without noticing, just like a soap box. The total weight of about 1 kg, plus glass transforming to reduce the dimensions. This is a new concept. I got caught on the fact that Nikon rolled out after he rolled well into the system. I thought they would die in the conservative agony of snappers and rattles, but got a rebellion from the dead

  • Adon

    Why are the lenses under the bzk as big as under the mirrors? After all, the working segments are much smaller, 16mm in this case.

    • @hvalsky

      Probably because the distance from the beginning of the lens to the matrix at a given focal length remains approximately the same regardless of how close the rear glass is moved to the matrix and it cannot be shortened due to the physics of light. So the dimensions of the system remain approximately the same. But there appeared convenient transformers like 24-70 and 14-30 f4, partially leveling this property of physics

      • Michael

        Canon at one time had diffraction optics, just designed to reduce size

        • Roman

          She is now. And with Nikon, too, Fresnel lenses are used in both.

    • Vitaly N

      The laws of physics. The shorter the working distance, the worse. At the edges of the matrix, the light will fall at a smaller angle - vignetting and distortion increase. Of course, you can bend the matrix, shift the sensor filters. But it’s easier to increase the working length.

  • Air force

    It's time to create a heading: lenses, an overview of which will never appear on the joyful). Sarcasm

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Even if they were sent in a bundle, I won’t have time to review all this :)

      • Valery A.

        It is necessary to give the initiative to the places that have taken possession - describe it in joys, show pictures. Then the guy from Paris overlooked the Samsung camera - they shook his hands, in vain.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          I’m just for it, they write a lot in PM, they say Arkady, I’ll do a reviewer of my photo miracle, but in 90% of cases this does not go further :). This is not easy

    • Novel

      It's time to introduce a moderator system as in the photo ru. Allow to publish reviews of third-party authors with the right to moderation by authors of relevant topics.
      Otherwise, a person will lay out a review of bz ff carcasses for $ 3000 and lenses for $ 2500, as the proud owners of D40 and other rubbish will immediately attack and begin to flood that there is nothing better than a lens kit. And then a crowd of trolls like P, VN and others will come and prove in two ways that there is nothing better than fuja or d7100, everything sucks.
      Here there are no normal reviews of new products, alas.

    • Novel

      For normal reviews, you need to constantly work with the technique. Do a lot of people in Ukraine work with modern photo news starting at $ 5000 per set?
      And those who work, will they want to spend time on trolls who do not need anything (crop of mirrors 10 years ago and a couple of dark mirrors) (there is no money) but who endlessly posts in the comments that nothing is better than the old trash, the full frame is useless and the mirrorless sucks?

      • Arkady Shapoval

        They write different things, like on the whole Internet

        • Novel

          I don’t think that someone will post their reviews of the new until the trolls including goofan fans for all the news are forever banned in the comments. The man worked, did a review, and trolls envious with a budget of 300 dollars come out of bile and flood. Meaning? There are no new reviews.

          • Alexander

            Of course, nobody needs a review of photographic equipment for $ 5 ... But they don’t need it because, firstly, none of the normal people can buy it, because in both our countries the population is poor and it is not clear to whom they even appear here, so how can this be bought only if you steal, you can’t buy for poor salaries, and secondly, the “pro” who has it got all this for free from the company and it’s not interesting to read the “nonsense” in the reviewer’s review, because he has a paid task from the company to write such nonsense ... I once saw a wedding photo a graph (what does the photo come out with really interesting ones and everyone likes it, was even surprised), so he shot on the Nikon D80 (and SB900), which already had no inscriptions on the case and ran over 500 thousand ... And everyone tried to order it was him, because the reviews were only positive about him ... And this despite the fact that he did not click like a Nutcracker and his camera mileage was very high and of high efficiency ... You always need to think about equipment, those who don’t think about it got a freebie or he tries to tear so much for his art that he’s easy but you can often buy ... But in order to tear more for your work, you need to be a master, not a Nutcracker, otherwise you won’t be able to tear expensive ...

        • Novel

          So that’s the difference with the photo ru.
          There, such lovers of flooding in a non-core topic are banned for half a second.
          You do not like kenon - do not flood in a topic about kenon.
          You do not like bz - do not go into topics about bz.
          So it turns out that everyone reads the topic that he likes without flooding and trolls.

          • NEO

            In the photo ru selective moderation, their troubles, and even there are terry woodpeckers.
            The juice on the Lens Club. Everything is warm and warm for people, and not for majors.

            • Novel

              In the photo ru double moderation, by administrators and authors of the topic. The author of the topic bannits himself without admins of trolls and flooders, adding them to the black list. After that, they can only read the topic.

            • Novel

              Your remark about majors perfectly shows why the owners of new equipment rarely appear here and do not post their reviews.

              • Dim

                How old should a person be to be offended by every woof-woof? Something is hard to believe that with such an undeveloped psyche you can earn on the “5000 dollars” set, rather, such a set is begged out and a description of its properties will be stupid. IMHO

              • Arkady Shapoval

                Those who shoot - shoot and rarely think about the "younger generation" of photographers. If you want to share your experience, then share on their own workshops, workshops, courses. The photo technique itself is interesting mainly for beginners only. And the new equipment or expensive equipment is so good that it is usually described in two words - excellent with small flaws. This can be said about 90% of all new.

              • Novel

                The question is not offense, but in the logic and proverb about throwing beads.
                The point of spending time offended by all losers with the behavior of adolescents who will still never buy equipment at such a price?
                Of course, earnings on such equipment go according to another business model and it simply does not exist in Ukraine, only the cheapest equipment can be recaptured there, alas.

              • Novel

                Arkady, I completely disagree with you.
                I know a lot of pros and amateurs who willingly share their experiences and experiences on forums and blogs.
                Just because it's interesting.
                But alas, not in Ukraine. Here, there is simply no one to discuss such a technique with.

  • Victor

    Hockey Puck Design

    • Passer

      You're right to the point! All thought, something reminiscent!
      And there would also be a description of the dimensions, that would be fine, and just guess about the sizes.

  • Alexey

    @hvalsky Are you an Nikon marketer for an hour? It is painfully hypocritical. From a marketing perspective, it looks like this: - first buy 1.8 fixes, then release 1.4 and the customers get an itch that their glass is not top, and then we get to 1.2; - it is impossible to put a screwdriver in the adapter, this will give the convenience of using old glasses, and reduce the sales of new ones. And the praises from you about 24-70 f4, released instead of 2.8, for the same reason as the fixes 1.8, strengthen the suspicions of your insincerity. About the mass-dimensional characteristics of the BZK everything has already been chewed, yeah, try to put the kit “like a soap dish” in your pocket.
