  • I can't comment on the Sigma or Tokina since I've never shot with either.  I do have the Nikon 85mmDX and the Nikon 105mm Micro (macro) lenses. The 85mm performs way above what its cost would ...
  • F11?  wow, even the 100-500 is F7.1 at the long end.  Maybe birds in the middle of the day when the sun is out.  I find even the 200-500 F5.6 to be a little slow at dawn and dusk for wildlife but ...
  • my unbreakable rule is rules are made to be broken.
  • I'm a nature photographer (wildlife, wildflowers, landscapes) and rarely shoot portraits thus a set up of studio lights is something I do not have.  I rarely use supplemental lighting ...
  • I don’t don’t do portraits. I’m a wildlife and nature photographer. I find my best photos are darn close out of camera.  I may do some boosting of shadows or white balance correction and usually ...
  • I don't know what JIP actually bought.  Did they buy the intellectual property only (pattens, brand name, etc)?  Did they also buy manufacturing facilities and existing inventory? I haven't seen ...
  • If the seller really did refund your money without cleaning out your bank account I'd just write it off as "stuff happens" and look for another lens. I learned a long time ago people can be jerks. ...
  • I have read great reviews about the Tamron 90.  I have one Tamron lens in my bag now.  Also a couple sigma and one Tokina.   Hope they get a firmer update out to make it compatible with you Z6. Jeff
  • Dad brought it over.  I deleted the app, shut down and restarted his iPad and then went to the App Store and reloaded the Google app.  All seems to be working now. Guess it was just one of those ...
  • Thanks. I plan to use the lens primarily as macro / close focus.  Maybe some "intimate landscape" work but mostly flowers, insects, spiders, watches and the like. Jeff
  • I reassigned it to enable spot metering when pressed in.  I find the ability to quickly go to spot metering with the press of a single button and then back to matrix with the release of the button ...
  • Replied in Good point
    thanks
  • Created discussion thread Decided on macro lens
    I was debating the various options and have decided to go with the Nikkor Micro 105mm VR.   Several factors went into this decision.  positive reviews of the Nikon, Nikon on sale 90 bucks off ...
  • Mark, A couple things to keep in mind.  Affinity is a photo editor.  It does not currently include any catalogue or digital asset management.  As such, the risk to you is low if they do stop ...
  • Created discussion thread IpadOS 13.5.1 Chrome crashing
    My dad has an iPad mini. since updating to iOS 13.5.1 the chrome app is crashing after about 30 seconds being open. Anyone else having this problem? Fixes? Thanks, Jeff
  • Replied in my two cents
    Matt, I admit I haven't read every word of every reply here so if this has been said, I apologize for the repeat. Regarding your concern about lens performance at infinity, the limiting factor for ...
  • Replied in The Delete Key
    Getting brutally honest about my photographs and becoming super critical of what I kept and what I tossed at the end of each hike and outing.  I would say the delete key is the one tool that made ...
  • Ive never used the Tamron.  My copy of the Sigma is a good lens.
  • I have the Sigma 100-400 in Nikon F mount and it is quite a good lens.  Very sharp and seems well built.  I'm a nature/wildlife photographer and my gear not only gets a lot of use but a lot of ...
