I'm waiting for good fast Tokina primes like Sigma and Tamron are offering. Tamron is getting to be exciting with image quality approaching Sigma Art at a lower price and with stabilization. Come on Tokina.
Erez, your image is great, and better yet sharing your techniques was a very generous and selfless gesture as I mentioned in the very first post at the bottom. However, don't take all the negative posts here to heart. Most people here will rip you to shreds for no reason, it's been like that for years. Quite possibly the most aggressive forum on the web. It's the culture here. By posting here one pretty much agrees to being desecrated.
If you could afford the 600mm you'd have a 1D or 5D body. The body price of the t6i falls in the disposable camera category relative to the price of the lenses shown in this video. Looks like a Canon commercial.
Thanks for sharing your details about the story and techniques. That's the only way for others to learn. Enjoyed your post
RedFox88: Meh. Only 5 lenses and only one of them is high quality.
I'd say only one of them (50mm) is a world class leader in image quality.
Karroly: Subjects are interesting, well framed, but I am bored with these highly saturated - and thus unnatural - colors most landscape photographers used these days. Do these landscapes really need such post-processing to look great ?
Landscape photography has become a test of post-processing skills; how can I outdo the guy next to me with more MegaPixels, more PhotoShopor whatever else, otherwise it's the same shot as the next guy. Not much going on.
Chris Yates: It's because of Sony and it's A7 mirrorless lineup. Canon still doesn't get it.Put out a FF mirrorless and see sales skyrocket. there are countless people like me waiting on the sidelines. But once I pull the plug on another system it's over.
I really wanted to say, and should have said any mirrorless system, not just the a7.

Not enough dynamic range. Although it took 5 years to shoot, it strongly appears to me as having been shot with the Canon 5DS R. :P
Touch screens, 4k video across the board, complete transparency with Canon Lenses, factory EOS adapter and I'm first to post. My wishlist to abandon Canon.
Chris Yates: Zeiss 21mm f2.8 ZE classic going on sale, please make offer.
Heck for that price, I'll even throw in the 85mm planar.
I was afraid it was my eyes, but thankfully, it's just plain old Fugly.

Fredrik Glckner: The microdrive was the innovation which made the Ipod possible. One of the really big game changers, in other words.
I still use mine for old times sake. I got it for free with the purchase of the D30.
A clog I cannot clear is a head failure.
TheWhiteDog: I suspect these might be overkill for producing prints from my Fuji x30' s files! ;)So probably is my Canon Pro 10. But they look great, I can definitely see the use of a violet ink in color printing. And for those new super cameras(D810, A7r2, Pentax medium format, etc) these are a perfect match but I think it would be best to buy either of the 2 with the new ink sets. Glad to see advancements in printers also! I, for one, love making prints.
wessuggs, I share your pain and sentiments. Sadly, I can't afford to buy a Canon. Stuck with the Epson
sjstremb: Not any mention of print head design or changes to print head life span. The Epson print head failure rate is a well documented weakness of 4900-9900 printers to the extent that there has been some attempts at a class action lawsuit. Just do a search here about it, it's really criminal.
I hope this new series is not more of the same.
My epson 7900 has been my worst investment ever. totally unreliable. I shall never buy epson again. $4k in the hole and counting.
Chris Yates: Kinda pricey for a Chinese brand.
Thank you for your support TKO.
