Thomas Ferko about Sigma 18-35mm F/3.5-4.5 Aspherical ZEN

What do I do to clean the inside of my front lens element from haze and fungus on my Sigma 18-35 mm f3.5 – 4.5 lens?

Paul about Vivitar Series 1 600mm F/8 VMC Solid Catadioptric

…and all of this is why I’m looking for one in excellent condition. I do much nature photography plus some of reflective distortions, and the long working distance is just fine with me.

Lenses designed for SLR cameras can be easily adapted to any mirrorless camera due to very short flange focal distance of this type of cameras. Of course I do understand that some people may not know this, but I still think that it makes no sense to include mirrorless cameras in the adaptation table.

In fact, I am thinking about removing this section, since the popularity of digital SLR cameras among amateur photographers is constantly decreasing, and professionals do not adapt vintage lenses for commercial work.

It is true that it cannot be adapted to digital SLR cameras, but it CAN be adapted to most mirrorless digital cameras.

Thanx for the info. On Youtube there is a video testing the “Gamma radiation” of this lens. I suspect it is because of the Tsunami-Nuclear disaster. I have never heard of a lens Gama radiation before.

I think that this lens should not be radioactive. My point of view is based on the fact that only lenses produced from the 1940s to the 1970s were radioactive. Of course, not all of them, but only those that used thorium oxide as a component of the glass. And this X-Fujinon 50/1.9 FM lens was introduced around 1985, so it should be free from radioactive materials. X-Fujinon 50/1.9 DM lens introduced around 1980 also should not be radioactive.

Hello, us there a possibility that the lena is radioactive, is there any thorium in it?
Thank you very much

Brian Foster about Yashica Auto Yashinon DS-M 50mm F/1.7

Lovely quality lens, good colour rendition, radioactive. As are DS 1.7’S

Scott Murphy about Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 150mm F/4 C

This is my go-to portrait lens when I am doing portraiture on film, especially in black and white with T-Max 100. A really superb lens from the word go.
