  • I also consider my 200 VR as fast focusing ;-) I was specically referring to my experiences with f 1.4 lenses. Again, I would look toward attributes other than fast focusing as to why one might ...
  • Agree. As a rule, all other things being equal, an f 1.4 lens will not tend to focus as fast as an f /2.8 lens. I would look toward attributes other than focusing speed as to why one might want a ...
  • Not gazillions ;-) 2 Zeiss lenses: -100/2 Makro Planar -135/2 APO Sonnar. -85 1.4 AF-D That's it for lenses I own between 85 and 150mm.- (But on my Zeiss wish list might be the 15mm) (I sold my ...
  • Impressive! My local dealer received their first (and so far only) 105 1.4 today which went an NPS member :-( The next one in is mine :-) Thanks again, RB http://www.dpreview.com/members/2305099006 ...
  • No argument (though I haven't seen the original documentation and pertinent Florida laws to confirm that one way or the other). But what you had written was that: "He has also committed voter fraud". ...
  • Uh, NO. From your own reference: UPDATE : Politico’s Marc Caputo has checked records and has found that Bannon has never actually voted in Miami-Dade County, which means that he hasn’t actually ...
  • That book has some items that had to be "corrected" and as Media Matters attests, contains "Errors, distortions and fabrications" Media Matters on "Clinton Cash" Of course criticism from such a ...
  • He'd be a fool to not do so. The Clinton Foundation is not just about "financial matters", is it. Legal. Legal Trump was convicted of fraud? RB http://www.dpreview.com/members/2305099006/challenges ...
  • Renaissance Faires provide good photo ops! These are a few from Northern and Southern California Renaissance Faires. All taken with Nikon D3/4 and 200VR or Zeiss 135/2 APO Sonnar lenses. Outdoor ...
  • I don't know if this is authentic...... Just based on this letter, I don't believe that one can assess his expertise as a physician one way or the other. However, the tone of the letter is more ...
  • I've never started a thread in this forum where I was critical of Obama, but did, on two occasions that I can find, started a thread linked to articles critical of two of Obama's policies (as ...
  • Hard to argue that Trump doesn't fit much of this. One of the things that I would wish for Trump is genuine humility. Thank goodness HIllary has no significant personality issues..... RB http://www ...
  • Agree. (See below, your misuse of the word "exactly".) Not all leverage is ransom. But all ransom employs leverage. I never said anything to the contrary. Expressing an opinion does not necessarily ...
  • Once again, you can't answer a simple question. Give an example where I've ever used derogatory name calling for you. If you can find one, I can find dozens of derogatory names that you've directed ...
  • Question : "What type of ransom does not involve applying leverage"? It's like saying that the wavelength of a color is 475 nm, but not admitting it's blue, it's just a wavelength. Washington Post: ...
  • Not quite George Carlin, but from Jackie Mason: Mason contended Obama denied the ransom claims “because every time he tells another lie his poll numbers go up."" "So he found out that lying is the ...

  • Two questions for you. 1. Are paid trolls minorities? (And as you might say,, answer "yes" or "no") 2. What are your prior ID's, including but not limited to LabD, TachyCanyon, GoneMirrorless, ...
  • What does the KKK, a racist group founded by Democrats, have to do with this? What "minorities"? In my State, where a portion of the wall would be built, Hispanics now outnumber Whites: Latinos ...
