mwstebbins: Nearly criminal that it was torn down! :-(
I would have said that was a librarian's absolute nightmare. Imagine dropping a book off one of those balconies in the first picture and what a hassle it would have been to get the book and get back to where you were! Not for the faint hearted as well :)
That is quite a library!
Thsoft: Why No 4K Video ?
Simply, why bother. It's not much more than a gimmick on DSLR bodies, as the Canon 1Dc has shown, so what is the point?
Gesture: Why gloat?
Because it's vaguely amusing
hrt: No trees in Iceland, although historians say that there should have been some trees before humans have consumed them.Volcanic island - coastal areas inhabited by descendants of Norwegian Viking and Irish Celts, with central parts of the island covered with ice.
Interesting Halldor, the place does look in need of a few trees to be honest :)
Those are cracking photographs. Stunning
Bing Chow: I guess the US has fully recovered from the recession.
recessions are very selective
I was happily reading along when I hit the price tag.

I think both your posts are very good explanations to anyone having any doubts about the tone of your argument. I actually agree. +1
That's a hell of a lot of maybes
pwmoree: So 1000 euro equals 1390 usdollar. Why is this lens 39 percent more expensive here in Europe? The 390 $ difference almost buys you a plane ticket to the USA to go and get one and have a weekend in NY included..
We LOVE PAYING TAXES over here in Europe. I wake up and feel wonderful
I've never bought a Sigma because some people say there is no guarantee they will work with future models of the camera brands they are reverse engineered to work with. I've also heard to many people bemoan the 'Sigma lottery,' of getting a nice copy of a lens. I expect a 'nice copy' of a lens on my first purchace from Canon, and bar one in 2007, have always got one.
Is this me missing out on some lovely glass though?
Actually i've changed my mind
If it's a picture of me i'll do what the hell I want with it. End of
dstate1: Once again we have proven that the internet is primarily a place for crabby middle aged losers to dole out brilliantly biting critiques...and search for porn.
Anyone who would write the kinds of things I see on this thread about a young artist is a walking turd in my book.
Perhaps the audience here would be more inclined to enjoy some still life's of fruit or perhaps more pictures of cats…as long as it's taken with the right lens of course….
^this. Some of the comments border on the vicious.
Nice video. The bit where he's talking about being inconspicuous whilst talking to himself in the middle of a street at great length made me laugh :)
All this will end badly
Roberto Smera: Is it possible Nikon pushes the delivery date to August because of the FIFA World Cup? In this case, can the lenses used in the field during the event be shipped back to the factory, cosmeticaly repaired and factory cleaned and adjusted, and sold "AS NEW" to customers worldwide ? Is this really possible?
Roberto, is that honestly all you can think of? Deary me, Nikon announce a wonderful update to a bread and butter sports lens..in time for the world cup.. and to you this is only so they can resell it afterwards? Wow
What a wonderful image!
BaldCol: $299.99 in USA, £300 in UK (Wex Photographic). Screwed again.
