  • Looking at your gear list, it seems like you are zoom lens kind of guy like me. Olympus has great zoom lenses. I have the EM1 mkII and it is very good. I also have a Nikon Z6II and Z50. Those are ...
  • "My A 65 is still my all time favourite" I am with you on liking my A65 better than my A77II I think it is because the default settings for AF on the A77II didn;t match too well with what I was ...
  • I liked my NEX7.   The Tri-Navi control seemed to confuse most people though, so it seemed to me Sony slapped a PASM interface on it at the last minute and came up with confused mess of a user ...
  • FD glass is really quite old, back to the film era. Most likely I have an FD 70-210 of some brand stored in my garage. Speaking generally for lenses of that era. the final lens element lacks an ...
  • Replied in Prairie Patch
    "Does it work for anyone else?" I grew up on a farm in Oklahoma.  My grandparents were homesteaders.  So yeah, that photo works for me.  I like it.
  • usually I really look forward to a new camera review on dpreview.  but this time not so much.  I feel like the Pentaxians here on this forum have already covered everything I want to know about.
  • Created discussion thread Most surprising camera release ever?
    After it was clear Sony was all-in moving ahead with mirrorless, after having released the mirrorless A7RII, they released the Sony A99II with the old A-mount and DSLR form factor.  By that time a ...
  • Best wishes to Mr. Schulman on his new endeavors. It ain't easy switching to a new industry but it sounds like he well prepared for the challenge.

    and my face also reflected in view in upper left hand corner

  • no reviews yet, but every Tamron superzoom has been better than the previous one so I am quite hopeful we will see something that is pretty good. there is a review of the old  Tamron 16-300 here ...
  • Some years ago I bought a Canon 70D from the Canon website. Turned out one of the buttons on it was non-functioning.   It took me a while to realize the button was broken and it wasn't that I ...
  • In the lingo of our marketing team, we try to avoid polarizing reactions
  • Thanks for the thoughtful response.  It makes me think that a couple of better slogans, better representative of what they were trying to convey, could be either Fulfillment through creativity or F ...
  • Thanks for the interesting observations about Germany.  I spend two weeks in Munich every year visiting our relatives, and our company has work with German optical firms so I find things  like you ...
  • Created discussion thread Fulfillment through work
    Just thought I would check out the website www.Ricoh.com to look for the 16-50 f/2.8 specs and the first thing that pops up on the main page is the slogan fulfillment through work.   I don’t know. ...
  • Thanks for sharing the fix.  I am super careful not to let use insect repellent around my cameras but I have wondered a lot what the fix will be when my kids are less careful.
  • Replied in Pentax 16-85
    For our family trips to Glacier, Grand Teton and Yellowstone this summer, the 16-85 was the lens I enjoyed using the most.   I was surprised at how often I shot as wide as possible on hiking ...
  • Commented on photo Olympus Dog in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery

    We named our dog Olympus, after the camera, and she knows it. That is why she is smiling at the camera.
