It's been (mostly) fun, but following the nonsense with the Sigma "Enduring Issues" thread, including its premature locking, which indiscriminately punishes innocent and guilty alike, I am giving these forums a long break.
Some of the best photographers I have had the privilege to witness operate here. Also a (very) few who can spoil it for others.
I probably also spend far too long here, and a rest is overdue.
All the best for now.
