  • Agreed 100%. Grab shots are your worst enemy, it does need a slight hesitation before pressing the shutter release fully. I shoot with my VC on all the time as well. The statement regarding whether ...
  • Sorry to hear you have had this problem and I guess it could be the lens. I had the same problem (or similar) but never with the 200-500. In my case it was either the front and back elements ...
  • Great photo's Mailman but those last 2 are something else, stunning detail. Got to ask though, is the exif data you show correct for them or should it have read 200ISO?. The image quality and ...
  • Replied in 24-105
    Snip See signature. You will find that all photo's in both my DPR and own galleries are from the 1D3 as it is my preferred camera by far. Please note that neither are for good photo's only, they ...
  • Replied in 24-105
    My own 150-600 works fine in AI-servo on both my 1D3 and 7D and has not been updated in any way. It was from the very first batch into the UK. Abbott Schindler has written some very interesting ...
  • No, walk away. The seller obviously has not been even slightly carefull with their equipment. A reputable seller would either clean it before sale if confident, or if like me would have it cleaned ...
  • Replied in Yes, Japan
    Nearly all my lenses are Tamron and never had a single problem with any of them so they are a first choice for me on reliability. On the other hand, my Canon 24-105 L is so soft it's like using a ...
  • Phil, the point with the Op-Tech system is that if the lens has a tripod mounting ring and foot you do not need a specific strap mounting point or to use the threaded part. Just use the loop ...
  • That Sigma pic is exactly how I use my Op-Tech sling strap for my 1D3 and Tammy 150-600. One loop mount on the camera, topside, one around the lens tripod mount ring. No need what-so-ever to use ...
  • I guess that's why most folks use the 600 f4 against the 400 f2.8 then?. Makes you wonder why Canon/Nikon/Tamron make 5-600mm lenses at all. Cropping a 400mm pic will never be as good as an ...
  • Correct, more info needed. I shoot quite a bit with a macro lens, 90mm, and at 12" you certainly don't get very much, maybe 1 eye, if that. Maybe at 12" you want to use flash too. Hmmmm, BAK has a ...
  • I agree 100%. There are also many types of loops and extensions to make the Op-Tech fit almost anything in any way you like. On my long lenses I use one on the camera and one on the tripod mount ...
  • I have both. The 200-500 is just over 10 years old now, purchased new in January 2003 and as far as I am aware there have been no design changes in that time. It is (was) my most used lens and was ...
  • Good photos Kris. It's not just birds and planes that fly though, here's a few from my first try at dragons. Exif present. Also on Flickr and my DPR gallery with some others. Denis.

  • Well, you have my full sympathy, we must have been pulling our hair out at the same time. Congrats for admitting to the RTFM bit too :-) Same happened to me this week. Spent some money on a new ...
  • Hmmm, pixel peeper huh?, personally I'm more "real world". To quote a test using a house wall or focus charts or taking any real bearing from commercial companies like DxO is a joke in my book. ...

  • Technically I suppose it is, for the UK see https://www.gov.uk/competition-law-unfair-pricing-agreements but there are many loopholes. Manufacturers can still do pretty much what they like though. ...
  • As you have your own website you could take a look at Coppermine Gallery It is open code but there are many themes available and colours and layout etc are reasonably easy to do with many options ...
