  • I appreciate your advice. I was really looking for the best value.  The Sigma Sport is twice the price. I did check out the comparisons between the options in this focal range.
  • Do I infer that you would suggest to stick with the Gen 1 then?  I don't follow this stuff enough to know how long an announcement works out to an actual release. Then there would be reviews of ...
  • I just ordered my Tamron 150-600 and it's actually in an exchange process now. I thought it was curious that B&H had 10% Rewards and a hot package deal with a B&W filter, but I didn't see any ...
  • I called just to see if there was any threshold of defect for return and they went ahead and sent out a return label and it is on its way back now. I saw the Sigma Sport and Contemporary offerings. ...
  • Example photos of the issue. I know it seems small and it is, but it causes me concern for not only resale value, but it also concerns me a little that this so closely resembles the same kind of ...
  • Thanks for responding.  I was really interested in how well the VC would work at the various focal lengths up to 600mm.  I should have shot a few at higher shutter speeds of the same subject to ...
  • Got my new lens in this week and got out to take some sample photos. I really hate to stir any drama by saying so, but I am seriously feeling a little conflicted about what to do. I had to send in ...
  • Thank you, thank you! Exactly what I was wanting to know.  I appreciate the tip on the key ring trick too. Now I'm left to convince myself that it will be justified to look for a long plate and not ...
  • Are you using of the of Peak Designs plates for this or did you find a way to attach an anchor directly to the lens foot itself? I found my extra Peak Designs plate (I have the Clutch plate on my ...
  • Thanks!  I'm sure that is an exceptional experience to fly in one of those vintage aircraft. I happened to catch a local photography event with Moose Peterson.  He showed some of his work with the ...
  • Created discussion thread Peak Designs Slide With A Long Lens
    I’m looking at ways to assist with the carry of a long lens – specifically the Tamron 150-600. I’ve seen a few examples of people using a Black Rapid system attached directly to their long lens ...
  • Thanks! When I very first began the research into what was available in the super telephoto range I found a review on YouTube by Tony and Chelsea Northrup of the Tamron 150-600 and he raved about ...
  • Created discussion thread Telephoto Advice
    I know this really just a question of personal preference, but I’m curious if there might be any advice or consensus of opinion based on my situation and needs. I apologize for the lengthy post. ...
  • Go check out the Angry Photographer Youtube channel and he's got a long list of reasons why HE thinks the D500 kills the D750. He's on here too I believe.  I was getting sick of listening to him ...
  • Ok. I think some people may have gotten a little too technical with my use (or misuse) of terminology. I may have misstated my question, but as the title suggests I wasn't exactly sure how to ask ...
  • Is there any 'easy' explanation to my question of what creates a point of focus with a definite dof when focused to infinity and beyond? I might understand how a focus point could be pinpointed ...
  • Tamron stepped up and fixed it. I really do not know a lot about lens construction. Apparently, this was the back of the front element - it is quite thick. It was described as being 'part of the ...
  • Created discussion thread Color Noise?
    I just made my first more serious attempt with astrophotography.  I'm still completely new to this. I'm not sure what you call what I'm seeing in a few photos, but in the darker areas I can see ...
  • I had a trip over the weekend is why I was cleaning my lenses. So, I haven't contacted them yet. I will try this week to see what they say. What you are referencing might be reflections of that ...
