  • Thanks.  That was a lesson in patience.  Clouds of different thicknesses were going over the sun, with periods of no clouds.  Every time the light changed, it was a different flower.  I think I ...
  • Had total knee replacement on my right knee 8 weeks ago (as of upcoming Tuesday.)  Haven't been out shooting, since the first couple weeks the pain was overwhelming, then the stiffness and total ...
  • An awful lot of people worry about things that are pretty unimportant in producing a good photograph. Good way to think about things: if you need f22, you need f22. Diffraction is one of those ...
  • Replied in Excellent lens
    With my Nikon kit, my three lens shoot kit was 14-24, 24-70, 70-200.  I think the 12-35 Panny is every bit as good as the Nikon 24-70 (which some would say is faint praise... it's a lens with a ...
  • I'm a wide angle kind of guy, and when m4/3 was new, I hesitated at getting into it because at the time, 14mm was the widest anything got and that's at the outside edge of my wide preference. ...
  • That's a common problem on zooms where there are a lot of heavy elements being moved around when zooming, and has been a problem for decades. In other camera lines, zoom creep tends to be a ...
  • As a long time Nikon shooter, I've got a dry cabinet full of lenses that make me crazy.  Some Nikkors put the focus ring in front, some put the zoom ring in front.  I have two Sigma lenses that ...
  • If 80% of your images are f8 or more closed down, I don't know why you wouldn't just use one of the kit zooms, since by f8 everything kind of evens out between lenses.  Using slower base f-stop ...
  • I think you should check out the depth of field numbers for this focal length on this camera. At f2, focus point at 6 feet, you're in focus 4.5 to 6.5 feet. At 10 feet, from 6.75 to 19 feet. At...

  • When a natural disaster takes everything physical away from you, all you have left are memories. This is brilliant - it's giving people richer contact with their memories. Bravo.

  • Funny assertion that not many photographers did their own printing. That was true about commercial photographers who didn't have creative control of their work, and that's also true today. ...

  • Dunno why you wouldn't just pick up a used 50mm or 85mm f1.2 or f1.4 used lens from Canon (the older mount lenses are very much like this, except less depth of field and softer bokeh) or the Nikon...

  • Too much Kool-Aid on the tables at Nikon's headquarters and engineering locations. To be fair, they're no doubt hamstrung by the financial results of the overall company - I've spent my life...

  • Replied in best wishes
    I find anything other than sheet film (yes, I shoot sheet film) to be underperforming for landscapes.  I think you've got some more thinking to do, but meantime enjoy shooting your sony.
  • You're not alone in your dilemma - as people get more and more into photography, they start shooting subjects that they hadn't really focused on before and start thinking, I need a lens that can ...
  • Good advice throughout to ignore inches and dpi/ppi. Just pick a pixel size that'll display nicely on screen. For most computers, that's around 1200 to 2000 pixels, longest dimension. For a ...
  • Replied in 18mm for street
    I got the 18mm lens mostly because it wasn't terribly expensive and I saw it available as an open-box special for even less.  I know from analyzing my DSLR images and my m4/3 images that most of ...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    I'm surprised at how many people seem to think that out of focus backgrounds are the only reason for a fast aperture. Hard to imagine how that must limit their photographic thinking.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    Very, very smart of Fuji to focus on user interface and experience enhancements. Today, most APS-C and full frame cameras (I'd even throw in m4/3) produce great image files with vanishingly small...

  • Most things like toys I got back together very successfully, sometimes in completely new forms. I merged a fire truck, formula race car, and a steam shovel into an alarming looking rolling toy...
