  • Replied in My Thoughts.....
    There has been numerous suggestions on whether to do this job or not, my opinion is that it will be tough, demanding and so much can go wrong. If you can get someone, preferably knowledgable in ...
  • Replied in Examples
  • Replied in Any Tokina
    With all due respect, your opinion and yours only others may feel that way about Nikon, Canon, Tamron  and Sigma so there are many other equal choices available so please do not say Tokina is the ...
  • Replied in Any Tokina
    Just out of curiosity who died and made you king? I always respect someone else's opinion even if it is vastly different than mine, but why do they have to think their word is gospel. they are ...
  • Replied in My Thoughts.....
    As others have mentioned a great shot. I am not saying any of this is correct, this is my opinion and mine only, if it we me, I would "straighten" out he horizon slightly, clone out the gull, play ...
  • Replied in My Thoughts.....
    For the most part I agree with Parry, I know him and the work he does, and I like what I see. My thoughts on this would be to have 2 fairly similar bodies, IMO this is very important, so you can ...
  • Totally agree with you Craig, it is a very nice lens. Personally VR does not matter to me and my type of shooting. Terry
  • I'm like Parry I did own the older 10-20 an not the newer one with a Nikon mount. This is only my opinion based on only on about 20 shots. I did have a friend with the newer lens albeit on a Canon ...
  • Commented on challenge Abstract Silhouette Photo

    Hmmm.......my entry of silhouetted posts against the ocean was disqualified, yet several other images that are very similar weren't. Not sure I understand the host's logic. I certainly understand...

  • You seem to like it which in the end that is all that really counts, I have no experience with this lens although I own a 20/2.8 that I really like. In the world of WA lenses 2mm is a lot. Terry
  • I would tend to agree, if you don't use it sell it. Only you know your type of shooting so if the 85/1.4 makes more sense to you, go for it whether 'we' tell you it is a good idea or not. It may ...
  • I was just curious that's all, but you are correct there is no push/pull 70-200/2.8, great lens nonetheless, congrats........ :-D Terry
  • .......why does the EXIF data for all your photos state 80-200/2.8 not 70-200/2.8. Just wondering....... :-) Terry
  • Commented on challenge Macro - A Sharp Point

    Just so every one is on the same page, this is gleaned fro the Wikipedia site:

    Macro photography, is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject...

  • Commented on challenge Macro - Colours!

    I guess people have to understand what is and isn't macro. There were some very good photos but unfortunately they were not macro, not even close. In another challenge Micheal did post a definition...

  • .....when you go out shooting, do you keep the Sigma in it's nicer rectangular padded bag or do you put it in a larger bag with anything else you may have? Certainly not saying it's wrong or ...
  • I'm sure every brand whether it be Canon, Nikon, Tamron Sigma (insert brand here) has a reject in their midst. Personally I had a 24-70/2.8 Sigma while being a very good lens just came apart one ...
  • Replied in Just get it.
    I am one of those whom is lucky enough to have both. IMO and mine only the 50/1.8 is every bit as good the 50/1.4 except at F1.4 :-D . IMO if you don't need the faster lens, then save a whole of ...
  • I've never used them but I have heard of numerous people using clean "tube" socks as extra padding for their lenses. Terry
