Quite a while ago in fact.

However there still are a few people who watch Betamax tapes, listen to records and use a land line so there will always be a few people who refuse to come into the modern world. They hang on to past technologies like it is a winning lottery ticket. They refuse to admit that new technology is better and they refuse to even try it.

Amazing, really.

High ISO cameras, advanced shooting modes, Photoshop, and image stabilization have all contributed to making fast lenses a thing of the past.

Garbage in, garbage out. Can you actually prove this. I see you take a few BIF shots. Try your idea on a dull day at F/32 ISO 6400, crop it and post it up

The economics are amazing. A Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS lens is $2500. The exact same lens in f4 costs $1000. While there might be a few people in the world that can justify spending $1500 for one more stop, the overwhelming majority would laugh at such an idea.

So with the BIF shot I mentioned above, use a real cheap slow lens will ya. I want to see what details you can pull out with the feathers.

Congrats on the strangest post that doesn't makes sense I've ever seen on DPR.
