Discombobulate: cloud is water, water is life, Martian let's go shopping!!

Really? So the clouds on Jupiter and Saturn are water? I'll make a note of that.

"...plus new car and motorcycle tracking capabilities." But I shoot vintage cars and motorcycles. Dang!

I used to shoot orthochromatic film in 120 format for portraits, in one case for an advertising sign. I loved it - and I really do believe it would be very difficult to reproduce the look digitally. I think it was 6 or 8 ISO... long time ago.

CeeDave: Impressive variety and indicated prices. But, as a still photographer, I do not like declicked apertures. I’d find it especially inconvenient for macro on a lens that can’t transmit f/stop to the camera for display in the viewfinder. Declicking a macro lens aperture is a head scratcher to me.

You beat me to it, Dave.

On photo Hunting Osprey in the A Big Year - Birds 2021 challenge (4 comments in total)

This is one of those shot that barely works as a thumbnail, but looks stunning at full size. As a large print hanging on the wall, it would be a knockout. It's a pity people don't look at the entries they vote on at original size.

Great work, Lance.

SomeGuyWithACamera: That would buy like 1/2 a Leica! (it had to be said)

It really didn't have to be said. "Besides a £5000 grant *and camera gear*, each winner will also get access to ..." It pays to read the text.

Wonderful and long overdue.

Now all we need are lessons in the pronunciation of Japanese names like Nikon. The correct pronunciation in Japanese is 'Nee-kon'. 'Nick-on' in most of the rest of the world. And 'Neye-kon' in the USA. Webster has a lot to answer for.

tolleknolle: I am still hoping for that FF Foveon in fp body...

@ tilleknolle. Why? There is absolutely no advantage in putting a FF Foveon (FFF) sensor in an fp body. Even Mr Yamaki has said that is the case. However, the heat sink technology developed by Sigma for the fp may have a roll to play in the roomier body required by a FFF camera.

Amphibians are NOT Reptiles - no matter what Wikipedia says. Amphibians are in their own class, Amphibia. Please don't encourage ignorance, there is enough of it in the world already.
