Again speed of focus is practice based. You do enough practice and the time will be less. The distance problem is there, but the bokeh is worth it

@amlan I agree with you...we can actually do "Photography" with manual lenses ...with all creative effects ...but nowdays I get those moments very rarely and mostly "pose and fire " kind of situation :D

I remember I used to use reverse , extension tube, filters and manual macro lenses when I was on peak of enthusiasm ;)

I am just pushing my dream ;) You should get the one suits you best.
BTW, Rokinon 8mm fisheye too doesn't cost heavy (I thought ultra wide angle would be super expensive.

It seems like, it's just happened last week. I just covered that part recently and so the reason I commented "go closer" to one of your recent photographs.

[MENTION=125321]nac[/MENTION] truth is I never liked doing landscapes much soo didnt bother to get an ultra wide angle...else I had an eye on sigma 10-20 for some time.
I am still enthusiastic about insects and birds soo Nikon 200-500 f5.6 VR really excite me :D

in the start I was really into close details of insects...but then I found most people found it ugly and I got bored of shooting same insects again n again...ok next time I will shoot something closer for you ;)

Just googled, it's just getting shipped. It's NEW. I was guessing it would cost few lakhs, but it's not. Selling your entire set up is good enough to buy this bazooka, I think. ;)
ok next time I will shoot something closer for you ;)
Thank you :cloud9::hyper:

[MENTION=125321]nac[/MENTION] its just 1300$ in US and expected price in india is around 75-80k ...my setup is almost 1.5 lakh :D I will sell off 150-500 for 28-30k and add money to get it if its 75k ;)
 
thats great siddarth...even I was thinking of 35mm prime this season

BTW yesterday I found that Nikon have launched a 200-500 AFS VR for 1400$ :) its awesome man...why didnt it make news ...people say it will cost around 75k in india

Great!! I was super confused with which prime to buy, from Zeiss or Sony, then I settled with Sony and purchased two lenses for price of one. The thing with manual lenses is....I didn't purchase my camera to work with manual lenses, the fact that most of the camera functions like focus from depth and phase detection autofocus depend on lens, I would rather use the first party lens. Although, I do want to buy hyper primes or fast manual lenses from Rokinon and Mitakon Zhongyi(with native E mount), but I'm worried about service.

Wow!!! Sorry for my wrong valuation ;)
but I'm worried about service.
Something which never crossed mind. Those big f number and cheap price made me overlook it. Thank you...

BTW, congrats for the new purchase. :)

Thanks!! The problem is that there is no after sales service in India, and even if the lens is cheap, but the indirect cost is pretty much high. And sub-par lenses and mount adapters can damage the camera, which will not be covered by warranty.

Congratulations! Tell you what, find some budding photographer and tell him or her that you can give them a lot of 'wedding photography practise.' Plan the shoots in advance so that you can get what you want.
