  • Commented on My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Hi Ruth.
    Glad you caught the bum. I say bum because that is the only way that I can describe someone who would do that kind of thing. Clearly, this person cannot be confident of his/her own...

  • Lanidric, Thanks again for posting - starting this thread. Good to see the varied reasons people take photos. I saw enjoyment, pleasure, moments, family, challenge, memories, money, satisfaction, ...
  • Commented on Monarch-Sep28-14 photo in Lanidrac's photo gallery

    Great shot. I have yet to "get" a butterfly but, on the list. This one looks like stained glass. Really nice.

  • I've been wondering that for a little while now. After I die, my pictures will just disappear. We have no kids so who would ever care about the photos I've taken after I'm gone??. In the meantime, ...
  • Replied in 6D in tuscany
    Great compositions. Yes, #3 = XP. My favorite is #4. Five is beautiful as well. Well done!

  • Thanks Mevbo. Have not tried MA yet. The 6D does have that as well. I've never used that feature on any lenses with any camera yet although may try it before too much longer.
  • Yes Armandino - pretty much looks brand new as well. I'll shoot anything with it. When I bought the 6D last Christmas, thought I would try to sell the 7D. Glad that I did not. With the 6D, also...

  • Yes - I'd say that is sharp. Nice for the price!
  • Thanks Bill - much appreciated. Yes, that Sigma Art would be a very sweet addition to my kit but, we gotta eat.
  • Thanks for all your replies. That's what I thought. For the money, if not shooting wide open, I do like the sharpness, even for macro with my Kenko extension tubes. Thanks again all.
  • Yeah but, for a plastic lens that I paid $100 USD new for, I can't kick. Pretty sharp over f4. You're right though - a new one sharp a little closer to the wide open would be great. I cannot ...
  • I've had my 7D for the past 4.5 years and have enjoyed it very much. If the new model is half as good in regards to build quality, feel, responsiveness and, for us "just plain enthusiasts", fun...

  • Hi. I 've had this lens for 6 years or so but have not used it much. I have recently noticed that it is very soft focused at 1.8 but does sharpen nicely further stopped down. Is this inherent for ...
  • I second this belief.
