On article Does sensor size still make a difference? (1066 comments in total)

I wish you had distinguished between different scenarios.
For some scenarios - sports, birds in flight, many events - even larger sensor cameras are operating at the edge of their capabilities - and there is just no substitute. In case of street, or casual family photography, smaller sensors indeed may make a difference because you are likely to carry a smaller package more often.

The other point to highlight is that it is the total package - and its cost - that matters - lens, lighting, tripod etc. The real question in my opinion is that given a price point and intended use, what combination of body(sensor)/lens/lighting and tripod is most suitable. Many folks would be better off improving their APSC camera’s portrait capability by getting a 50/1.8 and a flash rather than a FF without an adequate fast lens.

Please see https://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-general.html#mywork.

Basically, copyright protection is automatic and you do not need to register a copyright. The registration seems help in expediting lawsuits against infringing parties but as such, does not seem to add to or detract from your rights as the creator.

** When is my work protected?
Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device.

** Do I have to register with your office to be protected?
No. In general, registration is voluntary. Copyright exists from the moment the work is created. You will have to register, however, if you wish to bring a lawsuit for infringement of a U.S. work. See Circular 1, Copyright Basics, section “Copyright Registration.”

rxb dc: It is not perfect - but as the reviewers and many commentators have said, it does a very decent job and it is absolutely fantastic for hiking, parks, or travel.
CR is an issue but in real life shows up less often than one would imagine and even then, can be easily fixed.
I am quite happy with the results and versatility.
Take a look of my samples for the level of detail (especially in the birds, snake etc).

On the noise - I shoot raw so in all likelihood, I just did not do enough in post (like sharpening without masking etc). Or did not do ETTR and boosted shadows.

On article Tamron 16-300mm Di II VC PZD real-world samples (111 comments in total)

I did a crude comparison of this lens against Canon 50, 10-18 and Tamron 150-600 at different focal lengths
Here is the link to the post http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3763737
Would be interesting to see what you all think.
