  • Thanks for the post...did you see any appreciable differences between full frame and crop?
  • Replied in Lightroom 6
    Hope you are wrong (no disrespect), but I too will be done with Adobe if that is the case. FWIW, hope they are reading this thread.
  • It would be really helpful for me (and I suspect others) if someone happen to have both lenses to provide a comparison....sharpness, noise, etc. At this point it really doesn't matter what...
  • Glen, Appreciate the advice. Mark, Thank you for the incredibly comprehensive response...it will take me some time to process it all!
  • Created discussions HDR-Pano work flow
    Searched the forum for other's experience, but couldn't find anything.....so, I am using ICE for pano stitching and NIK HDR within LR on a PC. The basic question is: is it preferable to produce HDR...
  • Replied in Sigma 150-500
    I too purchased this lens about 6 months ago. I found in my particular application (D7000 on a tripod, manual mode, f8-11, 1/2000, OS off, auto focus off) subjects (humming birds) around 12 feet...
  • Replied in Feisol ct3442
    FWIW, I use the above legs with a Sirui K-20x ball head, and seems to work fine. I am also 5'10" and removed the center column as I can look through the viewfinder without bending over too much,...
  • Just picked up a Sirui K20X, and so far very happy with both performance and price. GL
  • FWIW, I ended up with a Feisol CT-3442 legs and center column and a Sirui K-20X head. We will see, but I think it will work fine.
  • Created discussions Feisol vs Sirui
    As a D7000 user; I have been trying to find a tripod that I would be happy with, not break the bank or my bad back too much and support my sigma 150-500. After much head scratching, web research,...
  • Created discussions Feisol or Sirui tripod
    As a D7000 user; I have been trying to find a tripod that I would be happy with, not break the bank or my bad back too much and support my sigma 150-500. After much head scratching, web research,...
  • This may be a simplistic suggestion, but have you tried viewing the 27" monitor with out your glasses on? I found when I switched from a 24 to 27, it was easier to be a little closer with out the...
  • Thanks for the reply. I suppose the bottom line is that if the so called 'break point' in the price/performance curve is where the Feisol system previously defined is (<600 USD), then that is what...
  • Hi Nancy, thanks for the comprehensive reply....you seem to be extremely knowledgeable in this area...as well as quite serious, given the level of gear. As I implied in my original post, I am not...
  • Thanks for the reply.... In looking at the cost of the components you suggested, I see $534. In looking at the Feisol components I noted in my original post (CT3442, CB50D, CT3442cc) the cost is...
  • Thanks for the reply....I have run into this brand. They seem to have a very wide selection; is there a particular model/configuration that would fit my intended use?
  • As a bit of background, I am an amateur, and the photos I take are for me; I may print a few, but not interested in selling, etc. My gear that that would require a tripod includes a D7000 with a...
  • I too am in the process of identifying a tripod with reasonable price/performance, and have found that Feisol seem to fit the bill...for under 600 USD the CT3442, CB50D and CT3442cc can be had,...
  • All the advice previously provided is valid; I would just like to add my two cents: While the 80-400 is an extraordinary lens, it costs about two and a half times the Sigma 150-500 (2700 vs 1000...
  • If cost is a factor, the Sigma 150-500 at ~1000USD is a great performer as long as it's stable. FWIW
