Re: 10 years in and still rocking the portraits with this lens

Many people will not click on a link unless they are given some indication of where it will take them, or whose video they'll be watching.

Why don't you give us a bit more, like a precis, instead of spamming us to get you a click. Just in the spirit of generosity, because the forum gives you a free account and you get some web traffic, how about the courtesy of giving us just a little something?

Only the really dumb would click on that link!

I do get mail that look a lot like that, too, and I would never click on them, just as mail containing a single image!

If you're using a "desktop" browser, the actual URL can be seen in the browser's status bar (at the bottom of the window) when you hover over a link. On mobile, long-pressing the link will show the URL without opening it.

So then, if you recognize and trust the domain, the link is probably safe to click. The youtu.be domain is a well-known alias for youtube.com.

Thanks anyway, I'll keep my distance!

Somewhat interesting that that  it's been over a week since the OP posted the link and hasn't been by since.

Remember, it's not the CPU that's in your camera that makes great images, it's the one located about 4" behind the viewfinder that does.

Instead of posting a "link",

can "embed" your video like below.

Agree 100%. What kind of clickbait garbage is this?

OP: Go promote your YouTube channel somewhere else. If you want to discuss a specific lens, fine. But this bait-and-switch crap is irritating as hell.
