There is a bulletin out for the 787 on false rail strike indications...
Seems another false indication...
Karl, I know 3 guys who switched all are back with Canon. Now ll where 1Dx MK2 shooters so the comparisons where against one of the best action cameras ever released if not the best. Adaptors are poor even when working well do not rely on one to get the best from a great lens on a SOny body even if ...Jump to post
G'day Karl, If you want the best 24-70 range lens just get the 24-79/2.8II. Its blusteringly sharp. Has some distortion but easily corrected. Its resolution is stunning. These images are used by ANA i took in calenders which are roughly 1meter across and look brilliant in orint. No negatives other t...Jump to post
ANC is simply the best photography location in the world today. The combination of huge numbers of heavy freighters, floatplanes and classics like the DC-6 mean it has everything and the best light you will have ever seen. Grab a hire car and just drive around there is good access all the way around...Jump to post
All the testing conducted on resolutions etc show the Canon is clearly superior from 100-400 and "equivalent" when using a converter out to 560. So buying the 100-400II gets you far superior IQ from 100-400 plus equivalent or better from 400-560 than the tamron. Plus the Af respnse and acc...Jump to post
Nice post cougar however it couldn't happen in an Airbus the same way as you engage goaround mode by "pushing the thrust lever to the TOGA detention". No tapping buttons..the only way to go around is to push them up to TOGA they don't move by themselves. In short it could not happen in an ...Jump to post
Pretty funny to read some of the posts about people sprooking how brilliant the 788 is. Unfortunately the reality for the early adopters is the aircraft has and continues to be ridiculously unreliable. Four of fourteen broken down with two grounded for over 48 hours on one day only a few weeks ago. ...Jump to post
As the 330 is a mid range aircraft and the 340 a long range one they where designed to compliment not compete. Rather than comparing figures between those aircraft the 777 and the 340 would of been a better comparison. The thing which killed the 340 was the relaxation in the Etops requirements. The ...Jump to post
For all this talk about just how awesome the A340 is something has been missed. There are over 300 A330's still on back order yet A340 production finished 5 years ago. I think those figures alone indicate the relative merits of the individual aircraft. Most airlines have withdrawn the 340 yet the A3...Jump to post

That type of reflection is normally associated with very bright light sources bouncing off the sensor back onto the rear element of the lens then back to the sensory again showing as above. Its avoided generally by using the latter designed lenses with anti reflective coatings on the rear element to...Jump to post
The 550D is pretty old now and double that because it's apsc means it's low light and hi ISO performance will be poor by modern standards. A switch to full frame on either brand would reap rewards immediately. The 14-24 was always a magnet at Nikon but gladly Canon knocked it off its perch with the ...Jump to post
There was no "stunt" involved in the highly planned and very well executed by very experienced highly trained crews.

Easy if you use pro tune to dial in some exposure comp you will be fine.
-1 to -1.5 stops works well i have found.
Good points Russ, I think any inputs pilots make onto forums frequently get lost in the barrage of statements by people with no knowledge, little knowledge of real flying. Flying flight sim 2004 or X-plane gives you a view of about 5% of a real pilots job. Yet many because they can take off or land ...Jump to post

Some brilliant shots showing the performance with the 1.4.
given the majority of Canon's line up is specifically targeted at action work like sports and wildlife they already have the highest DR in the ISO range at 800 or greater. If Nikon want to get a foothold back in the journalism/sports stakes they have to improve there Hi ISO DR. On the 100-400 from r...Jump to post
Another report. The most outstanding thing seems to be its wide open performance looks excellent. In a similar vein to the rest of the version 2 lenses none need any stepping down for quality.

I think it's pretty important to understand that the garbage DXO turn out in terms of reviews is simply that.

The only disappointing bit of this lens is the move away from push pull. The biggest advantage was when zooming at long lengths your hand was always in the correct position to support the lens.
