  • Created discussion thread hood for DA 50 f/1.8
    I recently bought the DA 50 f/1.8 which does not come with a hood. Well I have to say I'm really happy with the hood I ended up getting. It has an adapter that screws into the threads, and then ...
  • Well I've had the DA 35 f/2.4 for years now and had no trouble with the mount. And the IQ is reasonably close to that of my Limited primes. I suppose it's just a matter of what type of situations ...
  • Replied in thanks!
    Thanks for pointing this out, Alberto! The DA 50 has been on my list for a while, and this deal is the best Ive seen for it. Had a B&H credit to use, so I just ordered it.
  • Great series! Sixteen years ago I stayed at a friend's cottage in Fryeburg, a few miles west of Shawnee Peak. Watched a double feature of The Perfect Storm and Chicken Run at the Bridgeton ...
  • You've captured the light perfectly! I hope one day I get the chance to visit your beautiful country.
  • The exterior shots are beautiful, especially number 4. But that shot of the staircase in in a league of its own. Just a fantastic shot in so many ways... perspective, composition, color.. outstanding!
  • Great series. I lived up in New England for several years and always loved getting over to the Maine coast. Your photos bring back some good memories. Glad you included my favorite lighthouse: ...
  • Wow - those are beautiful photos of a beautiful place! I would say your new location has definitely inspired your photography.
  • I understand why some people prefer that method, but I like the simplicity of having it all in LR. And when I want to compare two different versions, I just create a virtual copy.
  • Thanks, guys. I must be remembering wrong. Maybe it was other presets I was using, not the ones from Nik. Opening as a separate TIFF is not nearly as convenient as what I used to do. Besides being ...
  • Created question thread Nik collection in Lightroom CC
    When Google made the Nik Collection free (earlier this year, I think), I installed it in Lightroom and it worked great. But when I went from the stand-alone version of LR to the Creative Cloud ...
  • I have no experience with it personally. But when review after review mentions the same problem, I tend to believe them. I know CA can be removed in Lightroom, but I don't really want to fight ...
  • Created discussion thread compact travel chargers
    When I got my K-3 and K-50, one thing I didn’t like was the bulk of the battery chargers. And when I bought a generic backup battery for the K-3, it came with a nice travel charger. Very small ...
  • Just a quick update. I got the Sigma 10-20 f/3.5 and am happy with the choice. I gave it a workout at some of the Smithsonian museums in Washington DC last week, and it performed as well as I ...
  • Very sad to hear this news. Ron was probably the most helpful person on this forum. I will definitely miss him.
  • Based on the samples and comments in this thread, I was leaning toward the 12-24. Having decided on a rectilinear zoom made it easier to compare: (1) I eliminated the Tamron 10-24 based on the ...
  • Replied in Thanks, Barry!
    That helps a lot to see it that way. Thanks. That's the way I'm leaning right now, but gosh I love the form factor of that 10-17. I think my question about IQ has been answered, though. Thanks ...
  • Lightroom is what I use, also, so it sounds like this wouldn't be much of an issue for me, either. I've read a little about that, but since I don't own a fisheye I've never been able to try it out. ...
  • Maybe I'm using the "ultra" incorrectly? I was referring to anything that went wider than 15mm to be UWA. I've never heard anything but praise for the 8-16 from its owners. Any idea why Sigma ...
  • Thanks, Barry. That second one is especially nice -- very crisp. You mentioned CA... is that primarily in situations where it would be expected such as harsh contrasts, or does it show up in less ...
