  • I just tested. Ours will not retract, period. I do hear some occasional internal noises. Will use only at 500 for yhe remainder of this trip and return to dealer for repair.
  • A possible hint. Yesterday's shoot invlved a significant amount of shooting straight up at birds overhead.... an unusual shooting position. I see Bill could retract by holding it vertically and ...
  • This just happened to ours yesterday. Expanded to 500 for some shots. Retracted to 200 for a few. Back to 500. And then it would no longer retract. I am glad to see this repport. This lens has been ...
  • Another possibility: which version of the SMB protocol is your NAS using? If using an old version, throughput is quite limited. If using anything even from the last few years, it should not be ...
  • Replied in Raid 0?
    The rationale behind backups is: a) multiple RELIABLE copies of data b) multiple VERSIONS of data (if that makes sense) He's doing neither. He's making unreliable backups, on purpose. RAID 0 is NOT ...

  • :-D We can't guarantee where writing will take place. In general, with today's fast drives and smart caching etc we get amazing speed pretty much anywhere on the disk. I just ran an HDTune on one ...
  • SushiEater... How did you obtain a guarantee that you can't lose two hard drives within a few hours of each other? :) A suggestion: if you truly only did it for size, then you can improve your ...
  • iperf is actually a ttcp compatible reimplementation. There are a number of these! NOTE however: there is a new app, still called iperf (iperf3 actually) that specifically claims to be incompatible. ...
  • There are a number of good NAS mfg's. I happen to like Thecus, just to add another good one to the mix :) A few thoughts on speed... 1) Having "gigabit" is NOT enough. Are  you sure you've ...
  • This is an old thread, I realize... yet comes up often in search results :). Jim provided a LOT of good info here. There are a few gaps however: a) Just because a drive does NOT show up on NAS ...
