Can you get 9 fps with the new Vello BG-N19 battery grip for Nikon D850? (*UPDATED*)

A reader who purchased the new Vello BG-N19 battery grip for Nikon D850 sent me an email to inform me that he could not get 9 fps burst rate even with the bigger battery. With the Vello grip on the D850 7 fps is the best you can do. Update – a reader sent me this picture of his Vello BG-N19 battery grip for Nikon D850 doing 9fps: Related posts: In stock now: the new Vello BG-N19 battery grip for Nikon D850 New Nikon D5200 bundle at B&H with free battery and grip The Nikon MB-D18 battery grip for the D850 camera is now in stock in the US (*UPDATED*)

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 & Others Listed as Production Ended by Canon UK

A reader sent in a link to Canon UK that shows the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 and Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 compact macro as “production ended”.  Quite often we see typos on various Canon web sites, but it’s often only one lens. In this case, three lenses that were thought to be current are there.

Nikon AF vs. Fuji XF lenses size comparison

I don’t have a guest post for this weekend, but a reader sent me an interesting picture comparing the size of the older full frame Nikon AF (D) lenses with the new ” modern ” APS-C Fuji XF mirrorless lenses (click for larger view): picture credit: Yannick Khong Obviously the new Nikon AF-S lenses are bigger but the old AF (D) models are still available  and they are dirt cheap  compared to the Fuji XF lenses . Another reader sent me some interesting stats on Nikkor lenses: Out of the 48 DSLR lenses released from 1992 to 1999, 13 are still in the lineup Out of the 53 DSLR lenses released from 2000 to 2009, 28 are still in the lineup And all 38 DSLR lenses released since 2010 (including those not actually in retail yet) are still in the lineup And there are 8 remaining manual AI-S lenses, all of which were released between 1981 and 1984 Related posts: Fuji x100 may be compatible with Nikon CLS Giving away a Fuji X100 camera on PhotoRumors.com Metabones Speed Booster Nikon G lens to Fuji X-mount camera adapter – a hands-on review
