Open Question

I have a wide angle centry lens for my Panasonic DVX 100 b. I have used it many times without any issues. The last two times I have used it ...it fell off! Now I also don't seem to be able to mount

I have used it many times without any issues. The last two times I have used it ...it fell off! Now I also don't seem to be able to mount it after over an hour of effort!

There were mounting instruction inside the box....step one would be getting a copy of the missing instructions. They consisted of two sentences!

Help is greatly appreciated!

I HAVE A CANON EOS REBEL T2 35MM FILM CAMERA AND AM PURCHASING A CANON TI1. CAN I USE THE SAME LENS ON BOTH CAMERAS?


Yes, you should be able to use them. Be aware, moving to digital there is a 1.6 crop factor. The means your 100 mm lens will have the field of view (FOV) of a 160 mm. No, it does not mean it is a 160 mm it is the fFOV is the same as a 160 mm. Also, at the other end is were you will most want to purchase a wide angle lens.
Example: your 28 mm film lens now has the FOV of 44.8, not wide angle. As you can see wide angle is where the move to digital crop sensor cameras lose out. To get back to wide angel you would need a 17 mm lens, that would give you 27.2 mm FOV.
To figure FOV take the lens multiply it by the crop factor. On a Canon it is 1.6, on a Nikon it is 1.5, the 4/3 sensor is 2.0.

I am looking for a 14-200 lense for my lumix g1


You won't find one with that focal range as it's never been made. A lens with such a range will have far too many optical compromises and will be bulky and heavy, so it's unlikely to ever be made without a major change in materials technology. In 35mm terms, you're after an equivalent 28-400mm lens, and no manufacturer has ever come anywhere close to achieving that on any SLR system. In APS-C terms the equivalent would be an approximate 18-250mm which has been achieved by Tamron/Sigma, but the lens has to be used at modest apertures to achieve acceptable sharpness and exhibits very obvious barrel distortion at the wide angle end and pincushioning at the telephoto end. It's a lens which makes no sense at all as there are better performing digital bridge cameras which are smaller and lighter which can produce an overall similar image quality.

You can only achieve the focal angle you're after by using two micro four thirds zoom lenses or via two regular four thirds models with a four thirds to micro four thirds adaptor. Using micro four thirds models only, you could do this using the 14-45mm and 45-200mm lenses, both by Panasonic.

At the present time, the closest single micro four thirds lenses to what you want are the Olympus 14-150mm and the Panasonic 45-200mm. The first lens has a wide angle to medium telephoto capability, the second has a short telephoto to long telephoto capability.

I suggest that you click here to look at the micro four thirds joint catalog to see what's available.

Sorry you won't find precisely what you want, but I hope that my reply has saved you wasting further time in searching. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

I want to use PL filter with DMW-LW 55. Can I


No, there's always going to be a compromise.

In this case you'll find that having the wide-angle converter further from the lens will affect the angle of view a little, but the main effect will be vignetting. All you can do is try it and experiment with different aperture settings to minimise the effect. In any case, you'd be better off in every respect by mounting the DMW-LW55 directly to the adapter, and then mounting the adapter onto the filter. To do otherwise will lead to dreadful colour fringing as the adapter and wide angle converter lenses are optically matched and designed to be a particular distance apart.

The front portion of my Panasonic DVX-100 is loose


AFTER REMOVING THE LENS HOOD Try to remove the 2 tiny screws in the front of the lens and then you see 4 more screws .What happened is that some force on the lens broke the plastic base for some of these 4 screws.So try with a small screw driver and be careful about flat cable of focus sensor

Wide angle cap vs wide angle lens


The cap is a plastic disk, usually black or silver, that snaps on at the end of the lens to keep the lens clean. Some lenses have two caps, one for each end when not attached to the camera.
Some cameras don't use a "loose" cap; those cameras generally retract the lens into the camera body and "close" a door in front of the lens.
Many, if not most, camera users do not use a cap (my guess).

The wide angle lens is generally an "optional" lens that can be used for group or scenery pictures when you want to shoot a "wide" picture. A "normal" lens is generally around 50mm (plus / minus 5mm). A wide lens is anywhere from 17mm to 24mm (or so).

I recommend obtaining a wide lens... with a cap.

Hope this helps!

Have a Panasonic FZ50. Puchased a Tokina 3x Telephoto today. Screwed the Telephoto on with the correct adapter ring.Changed the Menu setting to Tele. Go to take a Photo and i can only get the conversion...


Most add on lenses are designed to be used at a certain focal length, a zoom should be used (is most effective) when you are completely zoomed out, (really why would you add a zoom lens then not zoom all the way) a wide angle lens should be used with the zoom all the way in (cause your getting the widest angles). As far as quality, you really shouldn't have an issue except you may get black edges depending on how big the end of your lens is. Good luck

Wide angle adapter lens


The wide angle aspect of video lenses seems to have been overlooked (perhaps disregarded) by the camera makers. Most rave on about how many times optical and digital ZOOM they have, forgetting entirely that the wide angle end is just as valuable. A trip through the speccies of most new cameras reveal the widest setting to be around 40 degrees - the same as the unaided eye. For those familiar with 35mm stills terminology, about a 50mm equivalent. Yet there are soooooooo many things that can be done with a decent (or half decent) wide angle. It would be fantastic if they could give us (in 35mm terms) something like a 28 to 200 which was a standard purchase, or as Canon did ten years ago, a 35 to 300mm zoom. Until then, I guess we will just have to shop around for wide angle converters. I use a Sony (made by Carl Zeiss) one for my Sony DV handicam. It cost about $120 and is worth its weight in gold. I use this more than the "normal" lens, and get some stunning results. The mount thread is 39mm, and gives me a 28mm equivalent. When I was growing up with 35mm, I bought some fisheye converters, and they really were cheap and nasty.. proving that you gets what you pays for. The only caveat with a W/A converter is to be very careful of stray light and dust on the lens, as the depth of field will go from the lens surface to infinity in sunlight, and any dirt will 'flare'. Have a check of the various ads in the mag and manufacturer websites for the converters. Oh and treat them like they are made of eggshell, as the multi coating on the lenses is very delicate.

Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness


That's completely normal for those cheap wide angle add on lenses. There good for a little fun but nothing serious. I bought the lens kit for the Kodak DC3400, probably the exact same lens. The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.
