Irix Firefly 15/2.4 for Nikon

A worthy full-frame sequel to my Sigma 10-20 that I used on DX. Bright, sharp and very fun to use. Only manual focus, but with such a short focal length you can let the lens be on infinity focus most of the time.

At Panasonic, there are no bad ideas, apparently. They continue to pack up everything that you can imagine in their TZ cameras. Wide-angle and 20x zoom? GPS? Compass? Horizon Indicator? HDR? Panorama? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I bought this when my old TZ7 died and took it with me on a trip. Normally I carry with me a lighter SLR, but found that the TZ40 set was perfectly adequate for simple point-and-shoot and even some complicated job. It was really just what I would call "difficult art photography" that did not work so well - but then, you usually do not just have an SLR, but also stand and a lot of time. For what it purports to be - a travel camera (TZ = Travel Zoom) - is it a hit. High Speed ??Movie Mode (100/200 fps) is a really fun feature that I hope to explore more with time. A very good camera that allows extremely much in a small package and at a very good price. Can not really recommend this.

Have used this and Nikon 70-200/2.8 on DX. As the lens (autofocus, image quality, etc), they have worked equally well both. This is much easier on the wallet.

Very good camera with very good sensor. Light, easy to use, and very good image quality. For those who really want to get the 24 MP from the sensor, I recommend reading about the depth of field and diffraction, and take an hour to test until the ideal settings on the lens that you are going to use before you set out. The results are worth this little effort.

Easy and economical lens. Not the brightest, but for 2000 bucks you get a lot for your money. VR works very well, and the lens provides sharp images with little distortion.

Very good camera with good movie function. On the minus side is the lack of manual control of shutter speed and aperture. Instead, Panasonic has stashed eg long-term exposure in scene-specific modes. Movie function takes about two seconds after you press the button until it starts to shoot, so it's not for quick profits - either filming Already when something happens, or there is no idea to take out the camera. The resulting movie files (AVCHD) is tough to handle - mostly because they only consist of P-frames, ie pictures encoded as the difference from the previous image. This way you can trim the beginning of a short film without re-coding the entire clip. Small complaint, however, for its price it is very good.

I replaced my 18-55mm non-VR lens against this because I wanted to be able to take pictures in available light, which I had repeatedly failed with non-VR version. (35mm/1.8 wideangle was not enough.) The lens is good - VR provides approximately 2 steps. I set the camera to shutter priority 1/15, auto ISO and sharp images throughout the zoom range. As I mentioned above - the only reason I replaced my kit lens (for D40) against this is that I have on several occasions with 18-55 wished I'd had VR. The price and the lens must be seen in relation to the maximum incremental improvement booty gives, if you, like me, already have an 18-55mm lens. For "swappers": Good value at 999, -, but I would not give more than 1200 - for that, and in both cases only if I was 100% sure it was the VR I wanted, and not a faster lens eg Nikon 35mm/1.8. For others: easy and affordable lens. A lens to take when you do not know which lens to take with.

Amazing value and simply insanely fun lens for us who love the wide angle. This is a lens should be chosen for its ability to go to 10mm (= 15mm on DX), then such a wide angle through natural law imposes certain limitations in lens design and performance, avoiding at longer focal lengths, while a 10mm lens has the very good performance. Like other wide-angle lens that is best in the middle and becomes a little darker, a little fuzzier and get a bit more chromatic aberration towards the edges. However, this has no impact on the ability to create impressive images. The lens lacks image stabilization, but due the short focal length, it is not impossible to hand hold down to a one-second exposure time. (One should take a series of pictures and then choose the sharpest.)
