  • That looks so crisp and clean I just want to take a deep breath of that clean air! Wonderful shot.
  • I would definitely call that compromised in my opinion. After seeing the new picture posted without hood, Doh! OK, it was just the hood gap. The original pics threw me, looking on my small cell ...
  • It is funny you mention this mode of thinking... because I have been thinking of grabbing a Pentax KP to carry as a second body to my K-1, instead of buying the 1.4x HD to use with my DFA150-450mm ...
  • Because I also own the DA*300 I thought I would also mention, I've been anxiously awaiting the new HD FF TC, because the other issue with all these giant zooms is the size & weight, and my DA*300 ...
  • Ouch! Yeah, sometimes it is easy to forget how fragile certain parts of our equipment are, and it's a miracle things like this don't happen more often, with all the lens on/off the camera ...
  • I'm so happy for you! And, for the community that it is not an internal motor or circuit issue. I'm not 100% sure what I would do in your shoe's, but I think I'd be keeping a sharp eye on it, and ...
  • Can't speak for the Sigma or K-01, but the DFA150-450 ROCKS on my K-1, I have really enjoyed the thing, aside from weight. It is silly sharp, and even does a decent job for close up work with a ...
  • Since you mentioned people, and dogs which move about a fair bit, I'm going to recommend a dark horse here, since budget concerns can also play into this... The F or FA 50mm F1.7 !  This lens on ...
  • So if I want to do a remake of the movie The Fly, can I get realistic fly sight video output? Two lenses for the compound eyes, and 3 for the ocelli? Woohoo! Good times!

  • Those stats change with every new sensor released, but I think it was top banana in FF for a short time. The thing for me is, I don't need a camera that is the best at everything, I just need a ...
  • Ahh... got it...I think. Newbie to astro here, so forgive the dumb follow up question...Would a longer tele help, maybe at an angle over the water away from the city lights (The city lights would ...
  • Very practical and useful info. Thanks, you may have inspired me to try some night sky with my K1. I've done some moon shots with my old Tamron 400mm f4.0 (sold) and my DFA 150-450mm, but never ...
  • I guess I am a "senior" member of this forum now... been on here a dogs age. I miss Phil Askey (SP?) and the roots of the way this site came to be. Many of the original members still post on this ...
  • You did great! After reading how you took them, I realized I probably wouldn't have even gotten them in the frame, never mind steady. Well, heck, I prolly wouldn't have gotten into a kyak with my ...
  • I would be very proud to have taken those pics, regardless of the camera used. Well done.
  • Replied in Some lanscapes
    Yes, my experience is similar except for the AF, which I find slow, but only because I'm usually chasing moving targets like bumblebee and butterfly.  I find using my FA77 easier for subject ...
  • Replied in Some lanscapes
    #6 with the log planters has some pixie dust going on... very nice rendering.
  • I'm just chuffed that the FIRST offerings of the Big-2 are as close as they are in performance to the pinnacle of Sony's several year head start! Just think what Canikon can / will do with their...

  • So now instead of colonel mustard in the library with a monkey wrench, it will be some amalgamation of professor plum, mrs peacock and mr green in the multipurpose room with a shop smith....

  • Wow, those are really special. Great setting, great subject, and you were well prepared to make the best of them. Congrats.
