  • ... and we know it's bad
  • Nice way to present the data.  Shows how much of a malafact the currently popular argument that the climate is constantly changing.  It is true that it has been dramatically different, but the ...
  • OK, so if you accept the data from the recent past, do you accept that what has happened in the last 20 years was predicted 20 years ago? And do you have any evidence at all that that anything even ...
  • Same thing happened to mine, same thing is in the process of happening to the 12-40 hood.  Didn't drop either one. Olympus has a QC problem. I also found all the parts to the except one spring. ...
  • The 14-150 is a favorite lens of mine.  I still use it on some hikes, I like the results at the wide end as much as what I got from lenses like the 12-60, and the ability to quickly go long if ...
  • I also think the 9mm is under rated. I also have the Panasonic 8mm, a almost $800 lens.  If I had to choose I would take the 9mm.  It has also replaced the 9-18mm on backpacks.  I prefer the ...
  • Replied in body cap fan
    I have both the Panasonic fisheye and the body cap.  It is a bit of a stretch to call the body cap a fisheye, more of a totally uncorrected wide angle lens.  The projection is similar to action ...
  • It's not just NASA, it's everyone from the American GeoPhysical Union: http://sciencepolicy.agu.org/files/2013/07/AGU-Climate-Change-Position-Statement_August-2013.pdf to the Union of Concerned ...
  • Cowbird:  Thanks for the ID. I have been trying to use apps but I am not very good at keying.  Probably had it blue in one search, finch related in another. I also mess up the habitat frequently. ...
  • All taken with an EM1 + Panleica 100-400.  The first four were from a kayak.  The 100-400 is a great kayak lens - small, lots of reach, a zoom, IS, and water resistant. Merganser with chicks. I ...
  • Overwhelming evidence from multiple lines of research. Much of what we know about todays climate is the result of studying the past. A quote from Richard Alley from a 2009 talk to the AGU talking ...
  • Thanks.  I'm one of those who benefited from the bill.  Collect a few syndromes and reach a certain age and suddenly you can't get insurance.  I've also know a few people who were really hurt by ...
  • There is more to this then the ACA.  Your company took advantage of a healthcare law to pay you less.  My company took advantage of the 401K to get rid of a pension - one that was backloaded so ...
  • Annual out of pocket limits. Can't be denied coverage for existing conditions, No lifetime caps. These are huge benefits that you are ignoring. Even though Obama selected a Republican plan, none of ...
  • I've had this lens for about a week, and the initial impressions are all positive. Got it for wildlife, but haven't seen a bear in a couple of years, so I tried it out on a kite surfer.  Good use ...
  • I would have been disappointed if the 300 wasn't noticeably better, but so far I'm very satisfied with the Panasonic. If you aren't at 100% the gap narrows pretty quickly. The 75-300 looks like it ...
  • Shot all three lenses wide open and at the same f stop. The 75-300 was slightly better slightly stopped down.  When wide open is 6.7, F8 isn't a very big step.
  • I put what I thought would be full size photos of from three lenses (fully open and F8) in this gallery: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/6528805548/albums/300s#page=1 Electronic Shutter with 4 ...
  • Most of my shots from these parks are using a focal length between 14-150 150mm isn't really long, and 14 isn't ultra wide.  Why you may want to go longer or wider: UWA: In Arches you are ...
  • Replied in P mode
    I don't have a preference for shooting in P mode, but I do like to leave my cameras set in P mode, and usually auto ISO. If something happens that requires a quick shot, P mode is usually pretty ...
