  • Replied in And Now the Zoo
    In a quest to entertain my son and his friend (visiting from NJ) we stopped at the Tulsa Zoo.  The temps fell to 90 which was good enough for us but most of the animals were cooling off somewhere ...
  • Rudy, it is worth following Reilly on Flickr if you aren't already. You get an advanced screening. -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/brev00
  • So why not just get a longer zoom as Steve suggests? Rather than replace a lens that is serving you well, I typically suggest one should find a lens that specifically does what your current kit ...
  • Replied in Well Said!
    I think that is very well said, a thorough description of exactly what Sigma was up against creating this lens and how well they fared along with the difficulties of having an even bigger range. ...
  • Replied in Last Gasp
    I haven't seen many cows at least not the pre-cooked kind.  And, I am apparently closer to everywhere as long as I don't mind an 8-12 hour drive.  I kind of liked being half a mile from my good ...
  • Replied in Last Gasp
    Thanks, Rudy and I appreciate the sentiment but, so far, this is not a very photographable place. 100 degree weather, flat land, and a suburban area set up in a grid with big box stores and Tex ...
  • Replied in Last Gasp
    I finally took a few photographs in my new home, Tulsa, OK.  I probably would not usually take my camera to an aquarium but this was a chance and I could look a gift piranha in the eye: A Little ...
  • I think Sigma's intent, beyond actually selling the lens, is, as with the 18-35, to make a box of primes, in this case 24, 28, 35. Judge them according to their success in reaching their goals, ...
  • Replied in Depends
    Ok, I think I am confused. Probably just wording. You said not to zero out my settings but to use minimum values. Let's say sharpness is set to 3 in camera default for standard and 2 for ...
  • Replied in Depends
    What I am saying is I usually shoot in Standard or Neutral pc at default settings. I rarely boost a thing in camera since my old vivid jpeg days. That would seem adequate to me to get decent ...
  • Replied in Depends
    Not likely.  I keep my in camera settings pretty tame or I have since I started shooting raw and left vivid behind years ago.  Since I have never zeroed out my settings past default (Standard or ...
  • Replied in Depends
    I will have to get back and read the entire article at some time.  I did read that passage.  I do have the post shot blinkies screen on to check but find it less accurate than I would wish.  I can ...
  • I was greatly tempted to enter one of my icm's so I am very glad you posted this.  It is one of my favorite ways to show motion especially since the motion is created by the photographer and is ...
  • Replied in Depends
    From my experience with ETTR, I think spot metering is a key.  Instead of the op just having some generalized metering of a scene which would normally result in a blown out sky then adjusting with ...
  • I did not know that so thanks for the news.  Since I got my copy used a few years ago when it was still part of Sigma's production line, my advice would not change.  The reason I suggested this ...
  • I have not owned either lens but I can tell you from my own research that $700 for a 70-200 Di LD is near the list price and used models can be found for under $500.  Only you can best guess ...
  • Replied in Falling Down
    In all my years of photographing figure skating, I have captured a skater falling down just once: The double exposure effect was added to a single file while fooling around with settings in Analog ...
  • Well, I use my Sigma 70 2.8 Macro if I want sharp. Remember, the lenses will seem 1.5x longer than you were used to shooting film so the Tamron 60 2.0 might be an equivalent lens on dx to your 90 ...
  • You may enjoy Martin Buber, a Jewish mystical philosopher. He dealt with the conflict between spirit and reason by positing two approaches: I Thou and I It. One can have an I Thou relationship ...
