  1. Hi! I am very new to the world of lenses. I just bought a used Panasonic G3. I now wonder what lens can I get to get the best sharpness when I record with the overhead view? It's like 70 cm above where I have my camera.
    Also I have heard that the lens is what matters most when it comes to a camera. I'm guessing that means sharpness in the picture? How do you determine what is a better lens?
    I currently have a 14-42 Lumix lens. Thanks your help 🙂

  2. Man this sucks I’m just getting into photography and I’m trying to get better at taking pictures of boxers and martial artist but my camera is a Nikon D3200 with a 18-55 mm

  3. L telephoto zoom for my 80d? You have a video on glass, stating great glass only for wildlife. I would use ef 70-200 f /4l is2 usm on 80d to get fixed aperture throughout the focal length that would allow more light transmission than my efs 55-250 is stm. Also I dont like the focus b wire that is with the stm lenses. My 80d has some weather sealing, but with plastic mount lenses that are not weather sealed, the weather sealing of my 80d is compromised . I can afford to buy better lenses, but cannot justify spending un excess of $3400 for a sony a73 with 24-105 lens.

  4. 2:52 holy crap, people always say ovf is better for fast action but how can you even track your dog when you can't even see anything that is going on ! Way too fast for my eye !

  5. I bought my self a D800 so that I can use the old AF lenses wich are much cheaper then the modern AF-S Lenses.
    The AF is on some lenses quite quick and also accurate bot a lot of long tele lenses are quite slow.
    Also you dont have VR what i dont find as a big thing.
    But I think it is a great sollution if you have only 1000€ or less to spend. And you want to do a lot of different stuff.

  6. To be fair your "expensive camera cheap lens" comparison isn't very fair because you didn't have two lenses at the same aperture. Obviously there would be more noise in the smaller aperture because you were taking low light photos. It would be more accurate to compare two f1.8 lenses, since you could pay 800 for a sigma 35mm f1.4 lens or 2000 for a Gmaster 24-70 f4 and obviously the cheaper lens would have performed better. Other than that, your points make sense.

  7. Hello Tony & Chelsea. I was looking for a wide angle lens, and among the search results, a tilting-shifting lens came up. I have seen these before, but never got to use one. Have you? what is the purpose of tilting and or shifting? does it change perspective, or does it distort the image? Thank you for your videos. Your video about the canon 80D, helped me decide about buying it. Thank you again.

  8. Tony and Chelsea, this is a great video. There is a plethora of YouTube videos on camera models, specs, etc. but a paucity about lenses vs. bodies, type of photography and even kit vs. pro lenses. I loved the matrix and check list of facts to consider depending on one's interest in portrait, sport, landscape, etc. I did a search on the importance of lenses vs camera bodies and this video, albeit 3 years old, is still outstanding and a classic. I just subscribed to your podcast. Any more in depth videos about the relevant glass quality, even if you were to rank the various brands for M43's, APSC or full frame, I think, would be welcome. Thanks very, very much.

  10. Stop putting lipstick on the pig
    DSLR’s are dead….just like Medium format film before…
    Remember Bronica, Hasselblad, Mamiya or Pentax?
    Nobody else does either
    Mirrorless is just the 8-track tape version of vinyl records…..still born.
    Start reviewing phone camera technology …. or die like Kodak

  11. If you're serious about photography, then the best thing do is to get the best damn lenses you can, and then occasionally move up to more sophisticated cameras which can use those same lenses.
    Cameras are tinker toys. But lenses are divine.
