  • I'd like to see a significantly improved lens, the 16-35mm f/4 VR II. This would be a very useful lens (FL + aperture + VR) for me except for the fact that the current version seems to have so ...
  • And you're definitely right, too. You always go to great lengths to discuss the pros and cons of a lens in context (aperture, distance, subject, etc.), which is very valuable to me. When I say ...
  • I'll have to say that reliable autofocus is a high priority for me, because so many of my favorite shots and biggest regrets have depended on whether I nailed or missed the focus in a moment of ...
  • Thanks, Rich. The colors are somewhat more saturated in the Zeiss image than in either the Sigma or the Nikon. Back in the old days in my electrical engineering classes we learned about how the ...
  • Thanks, Rich. Yes, if I thought Food A tasted great and Food B tasted even better, I would probably have no good way of describing *why* or *how* Food B tasted better, so I understand the problem. ...
  • Yes, I'll have to admit that I'm puzzled by the meaning of these numbers. The 18-35g is now my favorite lens, but people I find credible make a lot more fuss over the image quality of the Zeiss ...
  • The best choice of camera depends on what sort of photography you want to do. Most people use their cameras primarily to record family events (birthdays, vacations, etc.) Increasingly, smartphones ...
  • Leonard wasn't doubting that the gun was real; he was doubting that it was a .22mm. A .22mm would fire a bullet the diameter of a human hair. He suspected you meant a .22 caliber, not a .22mm. They ...
  • Of course it's true that, for subject isolation shots, wider apertures have an advantage over smaller apertures at a given focal length. But that's not the only variable that matters. Longer focal ...
  • Daniel4, I hope you'll go ahead and test the 28-300 for yourself. See if the weight bothers you or not. It usually doesn't bother me. After decades of photography, I'm discovering that most of my ...
  • Daniel4, given the number of times you mentioned weight (I can relate to being torn between the fun of taking a certain lens and the fun of not having to carry it), you might want to check out the ...
  • I'm thinking the same thing (well, minus the sarcasm.) You already have a great travel lens: the 28-300mm. As RodluvanII correctly points out, this lens, if shot handheld at f/8, will produce ...
  • Yes, I admire you for doing that. As I said, the actual numbers you got could have ended up almost anything depending on what you happened to hold constant in your images (the two trees that ...
  • Lets say you have two objects in front of you, and you position them roughly on the left and right edges of your image. You then change to a different focal length and move forward or back to ...
