    I can imagine the marketing guys for Zodiac making use of that, including something like "Bear bite resistance" in the brochure as a measure of the craft's toughness. Cool shot and story.

    We've had some wonderful cold and clear days this month. And the sun is regaining some strength. It ain't over yet though.

    Thanks Steve -i only have fragmentary knowledge of Dark Shadows, still it was quite impressive at the time. I've noticed that you often comment using cinema or tv based comparisons/references... i can relate to that, in fact i find that this connection with still photography and mutual influence though obvious is often overlooked or even disregarded. Well, that's a bit of a bold statement, but without doubt too vast of a topic to be elaborated on here...

    Thanks, my friend.

    Btw, we don't see much of your work lately (maybe on the M forum), hope you'l come up with more soon

    I suppose we get what we pay for, and this is a question of improper QC. The Tamron is still great value for money, at least the version without optical stabilisation. Here in Thailand, it's around a fifth of the price of the Nikkor, and since it's much lighter and smaller, it's very suitable for travelling. I think the version with stabilisation has a different optical formula, but it's also much more expensive.

    To get small size and a reasonable price, I'm tempted by the Pentax K-x with the Pentax/Tokina 16-50/2.8, a combo that costs more or less the same as the Nikkor alone, but I'm tempted by so many things

    Another possibility would be the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 plus the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8. To me, the longer/wider perspectives would be more useful than the lacking 16-28mm.
    I think my last answer lead to confusion, what i initially meant was: "whether you hadn't need heavy PC with the 17mm on this shot, i'd get the lens instantly".

    If not for your remark based on the original file, the sharpness discrepancy is not readily noticeable on web sized files like above.

    That said, and talking avout choices, yeah the Tamron zoom stabilised version you talked about before seem attractive. As you know I wanted to try it with a S5, unfortunately luck was not on my side getting a good S5 so i eventually let the idea go. Then other requirements such as higher pixel count got in the way, so the next step for me in DSLR will be... a D3X
    (after studying and trying extensively the Canon and Sony solutions as described a couple of weeks ago in a Sony vs. Nikon topic here).

    Resolution is here, so is the terrific LV for products shots, ergonomy and operation are natural to me, using Nikon for so long, and i simply keep my favorite lenses. And the VF is a large improvement which is important since i mostly shoot manual focusing.

    Sure, it might be less of a novelty soon, but i could care for less. Sure, it's big but after all equivalent to the D3 family or the D700 with the grip, which stays anyhow on the body most of the time (like it, plus i shoot a lot of vertical oriented stuff).

    All in all my intention was to get the D700 replacement when available from Nikon but i got tired of waiting and moreover some of the features simply won't be there.

    Video is not relevant to me, nor even wished for. I want a specialized photo camera, and dread any menu or ergonomics complications inevitably associated with a multitask piece of equipment. If one day i want video i'll get a used 5DMkII or even 7D (for video the huge crop is a plus) and a pair of well beaten MF lens, that should do the trick. Canon is really strong in the video field, not sure Nikon or Sony will be able to fill the gap and seriously compete with them for some time.

    Well when all is said and done, opportunity knocked at the door so the D3X in the mail.

    Of course your travel photography has totally different needs and requirements. Pentax looks interesting from what you tell us for some time. The Tamron+Tokina combo seems quite suited to your expectations, too. ANd of course maybe Fuji will come up with something cool, either in the F-mount or (more probably) in the m4/3 range. But maybe you're getting tired of waiting there, too.

    Rest In Peace Greg!

    We do a yearly fund raising ride for ALS at Golds Gym. The final pic in the series is the last image of my friend Big Greg, alive. He arrived safely in Newport ,R.I. with the pack but didn't make it home. He was a gentle giant who took care of his sick wife & Always had this smile on his face when you saw him. Always with us in Spirit.

    Sad news Steve. Your friend Greg quite obviously enjoyed life, hopefully he lived his time fully and got the best out of it.
    Sincere condolences to his family, and his friends.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Interesting viewpoints, Corlan. I have to admit that the 7D is an interesting proposal for me. The video implementation, which I need, is the best and I can use all my OM primes with an adapter. Unfortunately, the perfect travel tele-zoom, the 70-200mm f/4, is white, and will stick out like a sore thumb anywhere I go. Showing off my gear is not my style, and not very smart even in some surroundings. Professional Canon gear is very easy to sell, also for crooks

    I've even considered the possibility of getting one of those lenses spray painted black or dark grey, but it would take some effort, sanding it, finding a suitable primer and then spray paint it.

    Another point for me is that I seem to be doing an increasing amount of sports photography. In this country, Nikon is not distributed by Nikon, in spite of them having their manufacturing here, but by a company called Niks Thailand. Unfortunately, the Niks people are never visible at big events, while Canon is usually present, both as a sponsor and with service people, loaners etc. So I have a Canon photo vest, cap etc.

    But, the ergonomics of Nikon cameras are in my view totally superior to those of Canon. The only camera that can really compete, is the Pentax K-7, a camera that unfortunately doesn't have their best sensor. The K-x has that.

    So maybe I'll just end up buying a cheap D90, and see what turns up around the next corner. That was how I ended up with the D80; it was simply too cheap not to buy

    Is it Brussels or Paris?

    And yet another example of the uncanny capacity of the S5 to shoot straight into the sun.

    [whisper mode] Don't show this one to Jorgen, it'll make him think again that after all, he should keep the body and won't find anything better, Canon Pentax or else

    Thanks everybody. Corlan, I like "bear" with me. Brad Hill http://www.naturalart.ca, the photographer that led the trip emailed me yesterday. They're trying to stop Trophy Hunting in B.C. Here's a petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/trophyhunt/

    I'm not anti-hunting; but hunting Grizzly Bears is a bit much for me. Sorry to preach.

    Hi Matt, thanks for asking. Yes, I often have fun shooting jobs, in fact I'd say the vast majority of the time. What I'm doing tomorrow is pretty pedestrian, but the real problem comes from some struggles one of our sons is having. I'm pretty distracted by that right now, and we're not out of the woods yet.

    For work I generally shoot Nikon digital (right now the D3 and the D300). I still do some film work, but not a lot. I shoot Leica a fair amount, but work-wise, it's about 80/20 in favor of Nikon, as I often need auto focus, higher frame rates, better low light performance, and/or longer glass.

    But my living-room is rather tidy

    D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 80mm and f/9.0



    Actually, it's a studio shot from this morning. I was picked up at 6 P.M. with all my gear, including 6 strobes with stands, to a factory way out in the middle of nowhere, to take photos of 2 two recliner chairs. One of them had to be white, isolated on white, straight from the camera. And I don't even own a meter

    Obviously you did a perfect job, Jorgen, despite the lack of a meter by hand.
    Looks great and ready for the brochure. I want one immediately

    LOL, I'm still chuckling on that "true" statement.

    Wow, I only thought this was done in the US. Interesting view regardless.

    Thanks Steve, btw. it is not true that the "Junk" house picture was taken with the cheap little 18-70 kit lens, it was taken with the Zeiss ZF 1.4/85 Planar.
    But I can no longer make any corrections to that post. I apologize for any confusion caused.
    It is even not the first time I make this error, too much copy and paste ...

    Nope. Waiting to hear about the newest version of same, scheduled for "Spring 2010". Thanks for asking though (as if my own impatience wasn't enough! )

    Looks great and ready for the brochure. I want one immediately
    Is it a "Stressless" ?
    Thanks, Steen and Lloyd. Unfortunately, the job wasn't all perfect. The lower right strobe was a little too "hot", so the ottoman is slightly overexposed, but I believe they'll fix that during post-processing.

    It's not a "real" Stressless, but a similar concept, made by a manufacturer originating from the same little village on the west coast of Norway.

    Steen, if you have problems seeing the difference between the Zeiss and the 18-70, I believe that I can help you by taking care of that silly, old manual focus lens for a couple of years
