  • Does it look OK according to this? (all wide open, even telecon shots, IIRC): https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59086707 Julie
  • This is the Nikon service center's repair/cleaning "menu", run through Google Translate: https://translate.google.co.jp/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=ja&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nikon-im ...
  • http://www.nikon-image.com/support/showroom/servicecenter/osaka/eng_index.html I don't know about the focus breathing problem, but they will clean your sensor while you go out and get a cup of ...
  • End of March: http://nikonrumors.com/2017/02/27/additional-information-on-the-new-sigma-art-lenses-14mm-f1-8-135mm-f1-8-24-70mm-f2-8-and-100-400mm-f5-6-3.aspx/ Not me.  I think 1160g is a good ...
  • I'm old too! I didn't know them either, until I did an internet search to find some "warblers" who might still be alive. Apparently they're an a cappella group called "the Dalton Academy Warblers" ...
  • Well, I'm afraid it's already too late for this one: Or these ones: But you might still be able to catch these little guys: ;-) Julie
  • Sigma just announced four new lenses, and one of them is a stabilized 100-400 f/5-6.3. Weight is 1160g, compared to around 2kg for the 200-500 / 150-600 lenses. It looks like it will be pretty ...
  • What unique and beautiful images. Of course it  helps to have decent gear, but as your link shows, ultimately it's the technique and vision that matter. Thanks, Julie
  • Have you already made your reservations? When you do, find out what aircraft you'll be flying on each leg of the trip, then you can ask again online what the carry-on baggage situation is. Worst-ca ...
  • I wish I knew which it is.  I've been tempted to just give up waiting on a successor and pick up a beaten-up D810 for relatively cheap, but I'd really prefer to pay more and get a new version of ...
  • Here's the actual tweet, based on a DPR post. The DPR post states, The comment was posted four days ago, and it says "as early as next week."  So if true, no announcement this week. I see two of ...
  • Pretty funny. :-) But the characters already *were* reversed in the photo. https://static.omelete.uol.com.br/media/uploads/conteudo/fotos/brunner7.jpg Maybe you accidentally posted the un-flipped ...
  • I only took the characters Morris posted and then pasted them into my browser, and I didn't realize until later that the screen cap was mirrored. But yeah, IME is great for searching unfamiliar ...
  • My Korean is very limited, but building on Morris' post: I searched 행운, and because I'm in Japan, Google shows results in that language. The Korean word is pronounced "haeng-un" and the Japanese ...
  • Then the GX-8 is an excellent choice for your style of shooting, and that's great, but it doesn't really address the topic under discussion, which is build quality. The point of my listing the ...
  • And somebody could buy four of whatever camera is a quarter of the price of an E-M1 and have those four cameras last longer than your E-M1 .... You miss the point of my post, which is that you ...
  • I dunno about that. I owned an E-1 and an E-3, and I haven't treated my D700 and D300 any differently. It seems like the prosumer Nikons have similar or better build quality compared to the Oly ...
  • Yes, and now quite a large number of people who call themselves "Democrats" espouse this view, because the party has moved so far to the right. Julie

    Wow. How DARE you? I am on nobody's payroll. I think and speak for myself. You'd better go read up on McCarthyism and take a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror.

    It is NOT changing the subject to ask one simple question: Would it have been possible for a foreign entity to expose DNC wrongdoing if the DNC had not done anything wrong in the first place?
