  • I had a similar issue when I bought this lens for my D5300.  It had the sticker that said it was optimized for the D5300 but was similarly out of focus.  It got sent back to the importer (and ...
  • Exactly right.  I used to take my 17-50 and Nikkor 70-300 when I travelled (Indonesia, Cuba).    For Costa Rica, the Sigma 150-600 C was added.  This past winter It was the 17-50 again plus the ...
  • Sometimes you get lucky.... FZ-150. https://photos.app.goo.gl/lrvUQAvwSg9MUsan2 This was the second of two kills we witnessed; the other was a Kudu that got taken in very heavy brush by a single ...
  • Replied in Sigma150-600
    Can’t really say, Saaber..l don’t use it for portraits: never have and don’t plan on it.  Portraits  aren’t “my bag”.  I’m into travel, wildlife & scenery.  If I want to take a “portrait” it would ...
  • Replied in Sigma150-600
    Mmm, no...I said I didn’t recall how much I cropped it. Still, point taken, it will appear sharper with less cropping. Regardless: I have that lens, I use it handheld, I have optimized it with the ...
  • Replied in Sigma150-600
    Sushi... It's tough to say how sharp it should be but I think there is room for improvement. In this comparison I don't recall how much cropping I did to frame the bird but it was considerable. ...
  • Replied in Sigma150-600
    I did use the dock after a couple of months of use of the lens. There were some minor tweaks (in the range of +/- 0-5) but nothing really major.  A couple of years on and it's probably time to ...
  • Man, did you ever come to the right place! 😂
  • No issues here. Update went well, screen is fine, all apps work well.  But then I don’t use Display Link or external monitors.
  • Replied in DXO Photolab
    That's a good way to do it: I did that comparing with LR6 and must say that geometry in wide angle, and sharpness overall was, to my eye, better in DXO. I also found it a lot more intuitive than ...
  • In other words, the bug doesn’t give a hoot where the focal plane is...it DOES care about that big, round, shiny thing that’s sneaking up on it. 🙈
  • Another vote for 18-140.  It has almost replaced the Sigma 17-50 f2.8 as my favourite for all but low light situations.  It is certainly now my travel lens.  Reasons to keep the kit 18-55...you ...
  • Could also have been simply sample variation (or tolerance stackup). That’s a great reason when, questioning a lense, to try it on a couple of different bodies even if of the same model provided ...
  • The OP should also not forget that the time of year (June, July, August being winter there), can have a huge effect on animal sightings. The trees lose their leaves, water is more scarce, the ...
  • Simply that this page presents a full explanation of what you were saying with regards to f-stop at various crop factors; or, if you wish, the amount of light getting through to the sensor.

  • I went to Thornybush Game Reserve which is just on the NW edge of Kruger in 2013...as well as to several other lodges in other countries. We could go off-track in some areas, not in others. My ...
  • Replied in DXO Photolab
    Love it. I was running trial of DXO PL and VP in early February...when they popped that Valentine sale I jumped on it. Some complain that PL does not have DAM...that’s not a problem for me as I ...
  • Try this link: I was able to reinstall my LR 6 from it a few days ago. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-downloads.html Regarding the monthly "protection money"...pretty much, yeah. ...
  • A couple of points: first, I think that if you want to spot and film animals you’ll need a tracker or guide and they will mostly concentrate their trips in reserves or parks where they have some ...
