Here's a POV video clip of a C-130 drop on the Rim fire near Yosemite.

Something to see isn't it Steve! I was hoping to shoot Yosemite this fall/winter, might not be much to shoot if this doesn't get put out.

Canon's CEO made an announcement that the company is focusing on the security camera market. He says DSLR sales are tepid and they hope to sell 1B in security cameras. Don't know about you all but that doesn't make me feel real "secure" about investing any more money in Canon.

Jim, during my Nikon study, I have noticed quite a few users are very 'friendly' towards Sigma quality lenses. I just noticed Sigma is working on new long telephotos like 300/500/600.

I remember you were happy with your Nikkor 24-70, wonder what the satisfaction is for the longer lenses, and what the reaction would be for the new Sigma 'S' lenses?

(edit to correct Nikkor spelling…sorry)

If I was that woman, I'd be firing the makeup person.

Nice catch on the spectator though

Since we are capturers of light, is this live, or is it Memorex, just to use an old catch phrase.

Trying to make the best of some serious heat haze at LAX. Boeing 777-200 in the new American Airlines colors. This shows you what being on the wrong side of the sun, at the wrong time of day, at the wrong location will get you - lots of time in post processing trying to make lemonade out of some very sad lemons

Good Evening Eddie Ray,

Every year Sigma beats the drum about a push for higher quality, and I do think their lenses have improved considerably over the years. I looked at the Sigma 14MM when I was buying my Nikon 14MM Rectilinear. People told me the Canon was ridiculous and the 2.5X pricing was just the name, blah, blah. I pulled a favor with a supplier and took a brand new copy of each lens and shot them side by side for a day. The Canon won out across the board, sharpness in the corners, chromatic aberration, build quality, pretty much everything. I bought the Canon.

I have no idea how that experience translates into Sigma today. I'd guess that they are better than they were ten years ago and that the price differential is still sizable. I also need to be cognizant of the fact that every doesn't make their living with their glass, nor have the budget for OEM high end lenses. Were I looking, and considering a Sigma, I'd read all the reviews that I could find, then find some more, then talk my supplier into allowing me to shoot for a day with the one I was considering. Then I would make my decision and be pretty comfortable with it.

Do we have anyone in the group who has shot a recent Sigma model?

I'm not "in the group"; just an ardent admirer... but I've got the 35 f1.4 for Canon, and I really like it. I compared it with my Tamron 24-70 f2.8 @ 35, and my Zeiss 35 f2, and it's head and shoulders above the Tamron (no surprise), and pushing the Zeiss (surprise).

Bad news, I received a request from Singapore today to quote a two week shoot for the Black Knights aerobatic team. The time frame would be mid October to early November, obviously over there. 12 days of continuous shooting, still, video, the whole enchilada.

Good news, I respectfully declined cuz I ain't missing HQ Thursday, not that I don't think Y'all couldn't have a great party there without me . Plus, I couldn't face "Angry", if I was gone and couldn't face Angry. The additional good news is that I have work that will take me through 2014 right here in these great United States, why would I go to Singapore? I was honored that they considered me though.

There are a jillion shooters that would give their eye teeth to shoot that quality with all the factors aligning for them Jeff, you're just afflicted with the MA2A overachiever syndrome, lucky you!

Yes Jim, I am certain the current lineup for Canon beats Sigma, (I love my 70-200 f:2.8 IS) however, I was very surprised how many Nikonians were singing Sigma and other lenses praises. As you know, I am looking at Nikon next year as an upgrade to the 5D and maybe 7D. I was surprised so many Nikonians were singing Sigma's praises for their Sigma 85/35 and 120-300 f:2.8.

Hey, when it comes to my grandkids and Texas sunsets, brands don't matter!

ps: I am still waiting on an opportunity to capture a shot that brought me to this thread: your BA dusk photo!
