  • Yes, it's never a good idea to have all your eggs in the one basket. :-) Cheers.
  • Good points, my previous SD15 went wonky and had to be replaced after a trip to Norway that was, to say the least, a little damp.  :-( I love my Sigma stuff and find the Olympus menu capability a ...
  • Still here,........ just having a try elsewhere. ;-) Apart from cracking a few ribs :-(  at Avoriaz when you posted that nice frosty morning shot looking back up over the fields to the Alps where I ...
  • Well,  from second last, things are improving, now a 4th and a 29th. As I suggested to you, DPR Challenges, disregarding the sad git votes you will always get, gives you an idea if your images have ...
  • Nice one yet again, natural colours, great. Cheers.
  • Correct. Sorry. :-( So far, it seems like a nice lens and it represents Sigma's new lens thinking strategy. I replaced my 18-200mm with it as I reckoned I did not really do a lot of the 200 end ...
  • You are sure going round in circles :-D I just recently bought a new 17-70mm f2.8 A lens for my SD15 to bring things up to date a little. But, I also bought an Olympus OMD E-M5 just give MFT a spin ...
  • Correct. Correct, a sort of second opinion. Cheers.
  • Well done here, more than I have ever done.  I agree with your comments in general on competition judging but I suppose with the subjective nature of images, it probably has lot to do with what ...
  • If you want to have people view your work have a go at the DPR Challenges.  Lots of people view this and when the voting shambles is finished you can get an idea if any of your pictures really ...
  • Set of WW1/2 range finding binoculars atop their old tripod mount.
The binoculars have a very interesting fungus growth on their lenses, may have been recovered from some battlefield ?

  • Submitted a challenge entry Hoverflies busy on Autumn Crocuses.
    Placed 29th in the challenge.
  • Thanks very much Rick. I have a zoom Tamron SP Adaptall, 35-80mm f2.8-3.8 model 01A which was pretty well rated and on my Sigma SD15 it was pretty good.  At least I liked it. :-) Apologies to MFT ...
  • Thanks Rick, So, If I mount a MF legacy 50mm SMC Takumar f1.4,   I set the stabilisation to 50 on the menu and if I mount a Tamron 500mm f8 I enter 500, yes ? Obviously a MF zoom would have to be a ...
  • Hi again, Just another wee question,  as for setting the image stablization, what do you dial in for the lens focal length ? ie,  If using say a 50mm M42 lens, do you set to 50 or 100 ? Thanks in ...
  • You can certainly get great results from these Legacy lenses, some report problems with SD1's corners etc but I have a few oldies and also like to wheel them out occasionally on my SD15. Cheers. Sd ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Lunar eclipse March 2007
    Lunar eclipse as seen from Scotland March 3rd 2007.
    Placed 59th in the challenge. Lunar eclipse as seen from Scotland March 3rd 2007.
  • Much obliged for all your effort and help. Believe you are getting much the same weather, wet and windy as here in Scotland at the moment, hope Spring arrives soon. Cheers.
  • Thanks a lot 'noirdesir', Yes, I meant 2.4 Gz, sorry. As stated the Mac is in France and I am in UK so not readily easy to run 'about this mac' at the moment.  You are most likely correct with your ...
  • Hi, Thanks for the additional comments guys.  The Mac is actually in France and I cannot easily check details. I take it that, being an Intel core duo, 2.4Mb I think, that it would probably update ...
