Thank you Valery. That was a mistake. I did not realize it was the not intended forum. :oops:

Re: Fast AF Telephoto lens suggestions?

Barry, I have 70-400 G gen I. I love it. Very fast focus. I have used it at car races, air shows and birds in flight with 90% hit rate. I have not used other lenses you mentioned. I held back on 70-200 range after purchasing 70-400 though I do feel an occasional itch to acquire a 70-200 range 2.8 gl...

Backyard flowers

From yesterday's session in the back yard. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47595745152_7d3d48383b_b.jpg On this one, I have not tested the lens after cleaning the UV filter, but I am wondering if the lens is out of whack. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/46732940865_e3321a3100_b.jpg https://l...

Yildiz,
Thank you.
The second Pano is a 18 HDR images pano, with each of the HDR images is bracketed for 9 exposure values (18*9 - 162 images).

Re: Shoshone Falls, Idaho

Thank you Ossie. The Pano had to be down sized due to Flickr's failure to upload a large file (size + pixels).

Shoshone Falls, Idaho

I was recently in Boise, Idaho for a weekend and visited Shoshone Falls. The Falls height is supposed to be more than that of Niagara Falls. View from the North Side. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/33742554908_c803541412_b.jpg Pano from North Side https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/46711189955...

Re: Composite Images

Ossie
The first two are dramatic, and I prefer the first.
Third one is more somber, and I do not believe
you are irreverent here.

Re: Tamron 90mm F2.8 Macro V Minolta 100mm F2.8 Macro

Barry,
Thank you. As a macro, I have Tamron 60f2 only. As for focal length, I have CZ24-70, Rokinon 85 and CZ135f1.8. So I DO have a gap at and around 100mm. Ok, now I have rationalized my GAS attack. :lol:

Re: Tamron 90mm F2.8 Macro V Minolta 100mm F2.8 Macro

Barry,
I have enjoyed the Tamron 60f2 quite a lot. Wanting a larger focal length. Couldn't decide between Tamron 90 and Minolta 100.
Does the 10mm FL make a difference? Want is the operative word here.

3 Alphas at once

On Saturday I was at Shoshone Falls Park in Idaho, USA. I noticed a couple next to me.
The lady was shooting with a A99M2 and CZ24F2, the gent had a A68 and I was shooting
with my A99M2 and CZ24-70. I would see another Sony once in a while but 3 Sony bodies
at once was indeed a rare event. :D
