I’ve recently been feeding my gadget-hunger with some second-hand lenses (can’t afford new ones).
These lenses don’t have modules available for them - only the newer variants.
One example (I’ve got a couple of others) is the Nikon 600mm f/4. The module available is for the VR version of this lens.
Is support for older lenses possible, or is it only what’s available now?
we add support old lenses when we can on the condition we can get our hands on a sample.
But right now we have catch up lenses launched in 2019 / 2019 so old lenses are not the priority. I’ll note your request for later.
Thanks for the reply. I fully understand that new lenses must keep you busy.
What’s the best way forward - suggest them as modules from the link in the software and then sit and wait?
You have to post a suggestion and I’ll note your lens in the roadmap but support will also depends of priority.
I know we have a lack in long focal length so I’ll try to catch up on that, including your lens.
Brilliant - I’l; get on it thanks.
One question though. With a couple of bodies and 2 or 3 lenses I end up with a number of combinations. As I’m easily confused will the software tell me if I (or anybody else) has already suggested a particular combination?
No it will not. Just propose
Will do. Done the first few already
Mus I buy a new 80-200 to replace my old good Nikon 70-210 ?
I’m not familiar with that lens. I’d guess it depends on whether or not its a ‘cpu’ lens so that the software can pick up the lens type.
If it is, then I guess it’s just a case of submitting a module request and waiting…
Is there any chance you would add support for the Nikon AF MICRO-NIKKOR 55mm f/2.8? This is certainly an old lens --Nikon’s first auto-focus macro lens.
I use this lens with a Nikon D700 for macro photography and to digitize slides and negatives.
These issues and more would be solved if DxO would just let us manually select and apply a lens profile to suit our older auto-focus lens (in my case the legenday Canon EF 80-200mm f2.8 Magic Drainpipe, which launched auto-focus for sports) or older manual lenses without EXIF many of which have optically similar modern equivalents.
