  • As far as I understand, the size of the entrance pupil of a given lens is what determines the (maximum) f-stop for a given lens. For example, a lens designed for full-frame cameras with a focal ...
  • This is what you should do. Personally both my drives are compact, but the principle is good. And ideally you would store your backup drive in a different location (work, family) so that whatever ...
  • There are many types of pictures where I have trouble today, one of the simplest problems is my lack of fast long lenses for birding and wildlife. The biggest issue for me right now is that I want ...
  • The second seems to be sharpest in the center, but is worse in the corners. The first is slightly less sharp, but has a much more even performance and less distortion. This makes the first the ...
  • Replied in habits of mind
    I quite agree with everything you have said, and I am furhtermore slowly coming to the realization that perhaps I should be more skeptical of Nikon, given that AiryDiscuss (Brandon?) does appear ...
  • Replied in habits of mind
    I am sorry if I came across as aggressive or anything like that, that was not my intention at all. I am just a curious person asking questions and trying to understand. Oh I completely understand ...
  • Replied in habits of mind
    I am not the person you responded to, but your response irked me a bit, so here goes: While the general gist of what you are saying above is understandable, and you sort of do have a point, I think ...
  • The lens works fine for what it is, it just doesn't hold up to top-level L glass, that is all I meant to say. Absolutely, but it's what I want. This is not necessarily directed at you, but I am ...
  • Replied in GET IT
    Based on the overall tone of this post I can see that you are quite happy with the lens. However, with all the cons you list and absolutely nothing positive beyond a vague "no other lens can ...
  • Wow, even I am not that bitter! OP shared an interesting story with humor, I do not read his thread as a complaint at all. To the OP: Thanks for sharing, it was an interesting read :)
  • Do you not agree that the purpose of moderators on a forum is to stop/prevent undesired behavior? If not, then what do you think the purpose is? If you do agree, then please explain why it is wrong ...
  • I would really appreciate if moderators and/or administrators could explain the rationale behind the current strategy for moderating posts. It happens very often that participants in a discussion ...
  • Yeah, it seems that that is what I should go with. Gotta save up for it thought :) I have heard too many horror stories about third party lenses to be comfortable going that way. I am almost sure ...
  • Thanks a lot for the detailed response, this really helped a lot. And those are some really great pictures too :) Now I'm really starting to lust for that 135mm f2, but it's probably not got enough ...
  • In all fairness, I don't think that the fact that they were farmers is relevant. It was the attempt to create a tourist hotspot and their lack of proper management/supervision that ultimately ...
  • Thank you all for your the input! I will have to look more closely at the mentioned options to see what fits my need best.
  • I currently have only an old 55-250 to get close to things, and while it does get me somewhat close, I often wish for even more reach. And at the long end it is not particularly sharp either. So I ...
  • I wouldn't put it that way. Explaining why I don't like a photo is something I have to think hard about after the fact, what counts for me is the overall impact and impression of the photo. And ...
  • If this was a photo for my own personal collection (assuming I was the subject), I would probably keep it because it would have personal meaning to me. But give this photo to somebody else? Not ...
  • If I am looking for a particular piece of information, there is no other good way to find it. Useless. Again, if I am looking for a specific piece of information, there (usually) are no visual ...
