  • Hi I went from a D300 to a D800E. Yes, the difference is quite noticeable, I would not go back to DX. In February this year, when I bought the D800E, the memories of the D600 oil problem were quite ...
  • Many thanks for posting your pictures. I found the Tamron more saturated, while the Sigma's colors were a bit washed out. Did you have same bodies or was it a different WB setting? Otherwise both ...
  • Replied in Dear Sigma
    Good idea in theory but most probably each camera and lens combination will be different.
  • It wasted so much time, that Sigma stepped in. And there you have it.
  • ...manufacturing the lenses hajagosb wants, please make a 20mm Art and a 200mm Art for me. Then I will not need any more lenses.... For a while.
  • Yes, I would happily own quite a few Zeiss lenses beside the 135/2 that I already own, like the 15, 21, 28/2, 50/2, 55 Otus and 85 Otus. Budgetary constraints and practical considerations are ...
  • Replied in Strange...
    I was for a long time contemplating whether to buy the Nikon 24-120 or the Sigma 24-105 and have browsed though hundreds of images on the web. Have decided for the Sigma 24-105 because it's ...
  • Good question. I'm frequenting these pages quite often, may have missed, but have never seen a report on Sigma's  30mm DX Art. But looking at you gear pages you have FF, DX and m43, three systems ...
  • Commented on Big family in the Nikon D7000 Series challenge

    They say D7000 has problems with properly portraying skin... ;-)

  • Replied in Why don't you...
    ... take a peek here: http://www.senscore.org/ You can see for yourself how various Nikon cameras behave in various disciplines: noise, dynamic range, color range, tonal range, resolving power...

  • Actually the criticism - in very brief form - is there in his free blog. See text above the image of the 20/1.8 lens: http://diglloyd.com/blog/2014/20141022_1934-weatherWindow-ZeissLoxia-Nikon20f1_ ...
  • The other reason for pondering about the Sigma is that I have the new generation 35/1.4 Art which is sharp as a katana, and has a great rendering. Earlier I would never have bought a Sigma, but ...
  • Sorry to hear that. At the  bottom of my heart I sympathised with the Nikon 80-400 as I beleived it is of a manageable size, smaller than both the Sigma or the Tamron. Europe is definitely not as ...
  • Well yes, I borrowed the 200-400 from a friend a few times. It was difficult to move it around. I used it tripod mounted, so carrying both the tripod and that lens - besides my other gear - was ...
  • A very good, but big lens. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54669115 transformed from NEF oreiginal into jpeg by me, only 1,13+ exposure compensation applied
  • Created discussions Optimum Digital Exposure
    Since the lens forum is what almost everobody visits, I post here. At Luminous Landscape I just notived an interesting article "Optimum Digital Exposure" that is a step taken further from ETTR, or ...
  • The first ones seem sharper, but of course comparisons have number of variables. E.g. is the lens calibrated to the camera? It's always a joy if you find the tool that works for you. What I conlude ...
  • As much as I undestand charts, the Sigma offers a much healthier output. Well, compared to the Tamron... Frankly spoken I'd never buy a Tamron. Sigma yes, after they had proven they can manufacture ...
  • Because this seems to be the general opinion on these fora. And I'm talking about the new Nikon 80-400, not the old one. I assume you are talking about Sigma's Bigma, which was a compromise lens ...
