  • Probably a lot has to do with copy variation. Dustin Abbott reported the exact opposite as he had trouble tracking with the Sigma.  I did not go so far in my testing of the two to see how they ...
  • Right now I blame any difficulties on my own inexperience!  I will have to test out the different vc modes and the lens' tracking accuracy. I did vary the settings a lot on this trip particularly ...
  • Yes, it was a very close contest for me, but Tamron dropped the price by $100 evening things off and took that strike against the Tamron away. The stabilization of the Tamron was another plus.  At ...
  • Created discussion thread Tamron 100-400: First Outing
    I bought the Tamron 100-400 the day before flying to Winter Park, Florida for a five day vacation with my mother.  I expected to find a few hours on my own for photography with the possibility of ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    Buildig a Nest: From my first bird in flight shoot with my brand new Tamron 100-400.
  • Based on what source? Not DxOMark. I clearly indicated that I was only talking about the sensor and if one wanted the best in other features one best buy something new. Plus, I wouldn't grade the...

  • In order to save the highlights, you dropped the exposure of the rest of the image. You could selectively brighten the darker area of the sky but the penalty of underexposing the sky is noise. ...
  • From the title I thought he was going to tell us how taking pictures in between sunrise and sunset without being tied to the extremes can still result in fine photographs. How novel is the idea...

  • Perhaps he was asking what do you prefer about your z in  the situations that are typical for you.  Plus,  you included bird in flight shots that I would classify as action.  Thanks for your pics ...
  • DxO Mark has them very close with only Sony's better high iso performance (sport) pulling it sightly ahead 96 to 94. The D610 is sightly ahead in color depth and a touch behind in dynamic range.

  • Yes and matches very well with newer cameras in terms of its sensor. Still holds up well to Z6 and 7iii. Now, for features other than image quality (af, flip screen, low light focusing, etc,) look...

  • That is what I asked so thanks for that acknowledgement. It is what I suspected. All of the rest of your reply is just more of what you have stated earlier So it does or does not have a financial ...
  • Man, I wish you got my sense of humor. I guess I was too vague. Ay, there's the rub.  A reference to Shakespeare and lens damage at the same time! Word play. Oh well. My point, however, is ...
  • Yes. I found the question to be simple and clear. I did not question the op's thinking process.
  • That's great! I was specifically asking Michael for the  basis for his decision not to use filters as I suspect he has reasons more scientific than just worry. The original question was what filter ...
  • Speaking only for yourself, do you worry about a loss of image quality using a filter or do you know there is a loss of image quality using a filter? Is it a result of your risk analysis and cost ...
  • That is the impression you leave with me so just giving you feedback. May not be your intent nor what others infer. But you have been countering those who do wish to use them to avoid problems ...
  • Your antipathy to filter use is stretching your supposed lack of bias thin. Thin enough to prevent vignetting on all lenses.😉
  • How about I am interested in a Z body but am waiting for a fully fleshed out native z mount lens lineup with participation of third party lens manufacturers. Why put all my f mount lenses in the z ...
  • I am not sure who you are quoting here. Steve didn't say that.  No one has said that filters should be glued onto the lens.  Without any epoxy, they are usually easy to remove. The op wanted to ...
