What is the filter thread size of the Olympus F1.8 OM? I want to put a reversing ring on the lens so I can reverse it on a couple of extension tubes on my Nikon D3400 for super close up shots.

Hello, I need some help. Through some research, I find that the Olympus 50mm f1.8 it is the perfect lens for me. So I had a GH5 and I don't know which adapter I should buy. Thank you so much for this video DSLR Video Shooter. (Sorry for my English.)

I found a vintage Miranda 50 f1.4. Wide open it has this amazing glowing soft focus effect which is gone by f1.8. The 6 blade aperture is smooth (no clicks) and produces great bokeh with a nice, unique hexagonal shape. With the adapter on APS-C it's about 100mm equivalent but it's far and away my best portrait lens for photo or video. Vintage prime lenses are worth risking 30-50 if you can find the right adapter, my 1972 Miranda E is easily my most unique and arty lens.

What is a good zoom lenses for my canon t61 please between and canon and a sigma one. The one that came in the video kit box isnt doing what I feel I need. I like to do nail stamping/polish tutorials and lip stick looks and demos. I need crystal clear closeness

I love my Canon FD 50mm 1.8, even though mine has a non-functioning aperture ring, so it's stuck at 1.8, it's still pretty nice wide open :)

Jeff Lennan (6 months ago)
Hi Caleb, I am fairly new to camera's and know little about lenses. I am looking to shoot a short film with the Sony a7 3, that will consist of mainly indoor shots in an abandoned hospital (natural light) with a running scene out side then to a little stone chapel inside, ending with shots inside of a car....so nothing panoramic, and I need a budget lens for this that can do all these types of shots. Im a bit concerned about some of the lenses that have a "Soap Opera" look, maybe too clean or sharp? Maybe I need a softer look for cinematic which is what I want. If you could please give me some idea's on low budget lenses for the Sony a7 3, I'm guessing native with out the adapters?

Could you make a video on how to adapt lenses on different cameras? Like for example XYZ lens for ABC cameras adapted to work on DEF cameras? If you've already done it could you provide the link? Thanks

YOU NEVER WANT TO BUY GEAR, ESPECIALLY LENSES, THAT DONT COME WITH A WARRANTY!!!! TRIPODS, SLIDERS, STABLIZERS & STUFF LIKE THAT YOU CAN BY USED, BUT GEAR WITH MORE ADVANCED MECHANICS MAKE SURE IT HAS A WARRANTY REGARDLESS WHAT YOU'RE PAYING FOR IT!!! THIS CLOWN MIGHT KNOW HIS LENSES, BUT HE DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT INVESTMENTS!!!

Why type of adapter would I need for my LUMIX G7 if I get the canon FD 50mm lens?
Max Vorobey (1 year ago)
Will the Olympus lens go on a lumix g7 without an adapter? Considering they are both micro 4 thirds
Robert M (1 year ago)
What makes the Olympus 50mm 1.8 better than the Canon? They seem to be pretty close in price too. Also, what is the best use for this type of lens, I thought I heard it was good for video and you showed some stills too? I thought they were good for portraits and basic video. Keep in mind I am almost a complete noob and trying to get going on the cheap and have very little experience.
Robert M (1 year ago)
I like that you are doing Frankenstein's monster with the lenses and bodies by using them all mixed and jumbled.

Cuewars Taner (1 year ago)
I am a beginner of photography for reviewing hardware product and making review videos. I found your video and it's really useful and helpful, at least for me. What I will do is to film on computer components or product and packages like boxes. Sometimes I need to film on RGB LEDs light which are on the motherboard. And they are always a close look. Also, I want to show the best sharpened details of the stuff. Do you think which one is better for me? The Nikon 35-70mm F3.5 AI "NEW Version for sharper quality" or the Olympus 50mm F1.8? I can afford one of them. But I don't know when it comes to price vs performance, which one is better? Or, any better option under $150. I am beginner so what I think is, a close look always requires more light to come in. Do I need to get f1.8, f2.8? or f3.8 is just good enough? Sorry for the long question that takes time to read. Really looking for help :)
