  • Replied in More Things
    To just agree with you (I think in a way), I much prefer using my new primes on my FX camera which are sharp across the frame by 5.6 to stopping down my dx lenses to F11 to get images that still ...

    Interesting reasoning
  • Replied in More Things
    I am not sure why you feel the need to lecture me, though. Kind of tedious to read. Of course, if that is your preference, I don't mind. I do suggest you read the Cambridge in Colour article on ...
  • Replied in More Things
    I think the difference between these two statements is relatively insignificant.   Plus a non-issue does not imply total insignificance.  It just mean the difference does not effect one's ...
  • While I agree that diffraction can be an issue that competes with the urge to stop down, I don't really agree with the global nature of your view--i.e., stopping down past f8 causes so much ...
  • I was just poking fun at your stilted language. I completely understand your approach and enjoy your photography. As a teacher and a lifelong fan of Monty Python, I could not let that phrase go ...
  • Chores attendant upon the production of a technically good landscape shot ? First of all, I did not know that noticing cornier sharpness is a chore.  Chores tend to be done begrudgingly.  I suspect ...
  • One question may be if whether a lens designer must sacrifice other lens qualities in order to achieve this high level of corner sharpness,.   I am not particularly well educated about this topic ...
  • I like to pull my car over at this spot as this is what passes for a peak here in Tulsa, one of the highest points I have found in the area.  This hill is just a short distance from the Tulsa ...
  • Sure, I still have it. I tend to buy things for good or at least a good long while. I like it a lot. It has a very nice, even, overall sharpness. I can use it at 5.6 for landscapes (more ...
  • Wow!  Old thread.  But, since I replied on here before, I did see it reemerge and wanted to share one image I took with the Tamron 35 soon after I got it.  I like its bokeh rendering but you may ...
  • If the competing product is equal or better.
  • Why skip out of principle? It makes no logical sense to punish yourself without there being some positive advantage or a voice of protest.  I will use Photoshop elements until Adobe ends it or ...
  • I do not find that any particular focal length is definitive when shooting landscapes.  I used both my 24 and my 70-300 as a combo much of the time on my recent trip to Alaska switching when my ...
  • Replied in Azores - 2017
    Very nice pictures.  It might be nice to show more images of the island itself.  Its topography, variety of biomes, animal life.  Its uniqueness. I think these images could be from many places.
  • Created discussion thread Prince Rupert in the Rain
    I had had enough of the rain and was headed back to my cruise ship, the Oceania Regatta.  This was the next to last shot I took that day. Here are a couple of others from the trip.  The first at a ...
  • What do you want in the 45 that you can't have in a 50 or a 35 for that matter?    I have a Nikon 50 1.8 I used a lot when I got my D610.  Then I bought the Tamron 35.   I don't use the 50 much ...
  • Replied in Blue
    I might crop out the left side and make this a vertical.
  • I guess I did not know what I was doing when I bought this lens. I got it for my Nikon N80 12 years ago. The original model. No vc. No pzd. Over the years, it has been responsible for many of my ...
  • Thanks, aodi! This guy was just great!  I got so many shots of him over a three day period.  The day before, that day, and he came back for another round the next day.  A real character.
