Tord S Eriksson's recent activity

  • It is amazingly better EVFs in most of today's cameras, even my NEX-5N's wasn't bad, but costa fortune, and the XZ-1's was just marginally cheaper. That I still believe, although it is a very ...
  • I borrow my wife's tiny FL-300R (a modern equivalent to the FL-20 I guess, the latter seems to be discontinued), or my old FL-40 (that I gave to my wife years ago) if I need a flash! What are those ...
  • Lovely shots, not least of the pond heron with the fish!
  • Replied in Huh?
    Some Nikon lenses have been made in later years that feels like metal (they might be of metalized plastic — I have no detailed knowledge of their design), but weight and feel are so important. I ...
  • That I agree with 100%! My primes are all small and easy to handle!
  • Replied in New V3 on way
    With an updated body, no problems keeping it off (mine is always om)!
  • Let's hope that things work out for us both!
  • We have a few things planned, but the rest will we take as it goes. That's how we like to travel, the looser time schedule, the better. Jungle (Kaeng Krashan National Park), family (babysitting!), ...
  • Sounds great, Wu! Been to Bang Poo, to shoot the brown-headed gulls, and the mudskippers! This former military only dance palace on a pier out into the sea is a unique place, slowly falling to ...
  • With a big Sigma and a suitable camera you can combine Sigha, good food, and birding!
  • And my friend Peter Ericson lives there, and he's one of the leading ornithologists in Thailand, and speaks fluent Thai, having lived there for over 30 years!
  • https://nikonrumors.com/2018/03/12/nikon-af-s-nikkor-80-400mm-f-4-5-5-6g-ed-vr-lens-listed-as-discontinued-at-nikon-uk-store.aspx/ Paid more than that for mine, sadly, when they came out, some ...
  • One day, when more have tested them, we'll know if they are worth almost twice as much as the 150-600 S (was really surprised the 150-600 was so cheap now, but I'll guess they want to empty their ...
  • That's one of those classic rules that work very well: 14, 30, 58 is one of my such ladders, two of these are manual and one has AF. Delightful! 20, 40, 85 is another, a mix of manual and macro ...
  • For me the holy trinity #1 is 10-30 (married to the V1), 6.7-13 married to the J5, and the 70-300 CX, used with the V2 (or J5). The holy trinity #2 is my three Sigmas: The 30/1.4 Art, the 100-400 ...
  • The new Sigma 60-600 S is said (by early reviewers) to be the sharpest of their long zooms, and neither the 100-400C or the Sigma 150-600 S is bad — quite the reverse! So a much faster focusing ...
  • Thanks! Off on a two-month vacation, to begin with, bringing most of my camera gear!
  • I had the 80-400G, and while it worked great with my D600 it did not do so with my V2, which otherwise would have been a superb combination. Simply refused to lock focus, and ran the focus back ...
  • Replied in Wetzlar?
    Probably a better design, making the job easier for the service guys! Should really be a hatch so you could fold out the sensor for cleaning, not needing a full disassembly, as with some cameras.
  • Replied in Wetzlar?
    That's with the pre-Christmas rebate included, eh?! Sending the GR off for dust-cleaning job cost me about 30% of what I paid for it new, sigh!
