Rick L's recent activity

  • I've had the Nikon 20mm for quite a while, and was reasonably pleased with it from a practical usage, non-pixel-peeping, non-testing standpoint.  OK sharpness, ok micro contrast, good colors. Got ...
  • Replied in Good and bad
    I have a love/hate relationship with it (ok, love and hate are (should be) too strong of words for a photo hobby, but you get the idea).  I use it with a NEX 5N, Metabones Speed Booster, and fast ...
  • Replied in 35 & 85
    I have a different view than most posted here.  I went to China several years ago, took an all purpose zoom for the reasons many expressed here, and was sorry I did.  It often wasn't fast enough ...
  • Replied in Bonaire sites
    My wife and I are actually avid SNORKELERS.  Only did scuba once, but might check it out again.  Thing is, snorkeling is great, cheap, and freeing (go on a whim), so we haven't felt compelled to ...

    I will be spending several weeks in Bonaire at the end of this year.  Any thoughts on good photographic sites (other than, obviously, under water)? Thanks
  • Kent, No offense taken, but thanks for the reply.  I'm a bit biased (a lot?), since there is nowhere else that I'd rather live. Rick
  • I have lived in Bozeman for the last 16 years, and this is some pretty good advice (although I hike pretty much weekly in season and have seen maybe 6 bears total, never close -- but I never hike ...
  • A few thoughts to add.  I've been using and cleaning dSLRs since my first D1x (and I still remember my first wet cleaning; left a streak that I was sure was a scratch on the sensor, couldn't sleep ...
  • Yes, it's an E lens, but surprisingly good.  When I do comparison shots side by side with the 105/2.5, the differences are subtle.  The 105 does have better bokeh, IMO.  The advantage of the 100 ...
