  • to know the subject distance for these two images, as one could then try to reproduce same and attempt to approximate a "theory" along the lines. That would help eliminate a lot of pure argument ...
  • ...have never had this problem. - And after a micro-AF adjustment for a 30mm lens years ago, no other problems with AF on the SD1M... However, I don't know which way you should go. Gee, Scotty! ...
  • Thanks for the info on the lens and this interesting comparison.
  • Now I'm doubly astounded!! Is that the 150-600 S lens? If so, it's pretty good. Also, did you use any teleconverter, or did you re-sample the image?
  • ...with Photoshop and a calculator. Just for interest, Dave, I checked out what your lens can see. (Will do the same with mine later.) Below I used your moon shot to check out the size of the ...

    That sounds interesting. Ta.
  • Replied in Hi Dave...
    A nice comparison. Did you turn your image upside down to match my S hemisphere view? :-D About the exposure question, it was a crystal-clear morning when I took it, so that might have helped. ...

  • Ted. I suppose I can Dropbox it for you. Can you PM me your email address so I can give you access to it? Meanwhile, I still reckon I don't have much use for Piccure after all. Below is the "best" ...
  • Guys. Here's another test... I thought, "What might be a good use for Piccure? Maybe to sharpen up resampled images? On a portion of a shot of the moon saved as 16-bit tiff, I did this: - double ...
