  • Replied in Great examples
    You have shown exactly what to expect from the 150-600S. Great shot all through, especially the Blue Heron. I once owned both the 150-600 S and C and found both were pretty sharp even at wide open. ...
  • No, I only looked at the center. It's sharpness is okay but its CA is horrible, not going away till f/2. You spent $2k for that? Now look at the 85/1.2 RF, it looks great wide open (Is it so hard ...
  • The 85/1.2 II is just as bad as the cheapy 85/1.8 at wide open, LOL. Don't tell me you bought the $2k 85/1.2 II and shoot it stopped down. Stupid website ... smh. https://www.the-digital-picture.co ...
  • Comparing at wide open is "apple to apple", hope this helps your understanding. BTW, I don't buy a 600/4L to shoot at f/5.6. Now explain to me the 600/4 II and 600/4 III results, can you??? Can't ...

  • Replied in Garbage website
    This is the same site saying the 600/4 III is so much worse than the 600/4II https://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=748&Camera=979&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=1227&Sa ...
  • Exactly. 400 is okay for ducks and herons, too short for small birds. Even with a 1.4X TC, you only get 560 and it's at f/8, a bit dark for birds in the shade.
  • Replied in Some astro
    I know nothing about astro photography but it seems to look "cooler" when you adjust the background towards true black. Don't you think so? BTW, that's a pretty awesome image. What's the effective ...
  • Thanks Randy. You definitely know what you're talking about, LOL.
  • Created discussion thread COVID-19 Blue Jay with M6II
    Thanks to COVID-19, all the time I spent at home has allowed me to capture different kinds of birds at my backyard. After Phoebe, Titmouse and Chickadee, today's lead characters are the Blue Jay ...
  • I don't remember which TC would become invisible when you stack them, the one next to the camera or next to the lens? Do you remember if you shot it wide open or stopped down? It'd be quite ...
  • The mirrorless class, not quite DSLR class yet. I had the Sony a6300 and a6400 before and M6II's AF is about equal to them. Check out DPR's M6II review for more of its AF performance.
  • Never a gamble for me. Highest pixel density in the market today. Best in class AF performance. Acceptable ISO performance despite the high pixel density. Seamless compatibilities with "affordable" ...
  • Looks pretty good even at 100%. Can you provide more EXIF details? Camera? ISO? Shutter speed? Aperture?
  • What you said above made me chuckle, almost the same here. Believe it or not, I'm still doing post-processing using CS2 and it's running on Windows 10, and it works just fine. I'm still using ...
  • Created photo thread COVID-19 Chickadee with M6II
    This time the chickadees take the center stage ...
  • I generally "despise" people taking static snapshots with nothing interesting to speak of. The images you show here are by no means snapshots in that you put thoughts about how the background ...
  • I'm glad you don't sound offended about my constructive comments, which was made because I was shocked no one even mentioned the ISO was not set the way it should have been. I'm with you that I ...
  • it's getting into watercolor territory. There was plenty of light there and the fox is not too dark in color, which makes noise reduction of this image acceptable. Tone down the noise reduction ...
  • Do you know what raw conversion settings did they use? Enough said from me if you still don't understand.
