  • Good examples of my favorite use of the Tamron 70-200mm and its elder brother, the AD-2 80-200.  They're fine ' nature portrait lenses '  with 10-50mm of extension tubes or the Pz-AF 1,4x TC -- not ...
  • The KP is admirable and wonderfully computer-rich in capability but the H1a, Spotmatic and K1000 taught us how to use a camera and understand photography. As impressive as it is, you ain't gonna ...
  • Commented on photo Ag pass 01 in the Turboprop incoming. challenge

    Yeah, I sort'a knew that - seemed intuitively obvious from the intake/exhaust profile if nothing else. Pretty common sprays acft. It wasn't a 502 but I didn't have one on the ramp that day. H2

  • Commented on photo Ag pass 01 in the Turboprop incoming. challenge

    An Air Tractor 402B - This IS actually a "turboprop incoming". Obviously a turbo prop. Flaps extended for landing.

    Do not see a requirement to list a specific aircraft type -- although "Ag...

  • I too miss the mechanical cable release feature and the ability to use a really looong pneumatic release. My solution's much like Jens' except I use 8-32 thread nuts epoxied to the top as an anchor ...
  • Brand name aside, the Tamron Adaptall SP 80-200/2.8 (30A) and more recently the SP AF 70-200/2.8 are the only lenses I use with the Pz-AF 1,4X TC at less than maximum focal length . That ...
  • I discovered that set of tubes should have been from 1- 12 mm to be useful with any but the 06 lens at max FL. Probably not easily feasible to include useful auto contacts in such short tubes though.
