Beautiful scene of warmth, good contrast from the climate here right now. Reminds me a bit of couple years back around this time when I was in the Bahamas.

What's a chickadee? Isn't that a tit (titmouse)?

tits are completely different. the grey puffballs that i posted along with the first chickadee shot are bushtits:

Actually, it just seems to be a different name (from Wikipedia):

"These birds are called either "chickadees" (onomatopoeic, derived from their distinctive "chick-a dee dee dee" alarm call) or "titmice" in North America, and just "tits" in the rest of the English-speaking world."

Britain is experiencing a seeming endless succession of Atlantic lows and the novelty of horizontal rain and hill fog has long worn off, so no excursions to the hills and brief trips made instead to the woods. Images from the 100/2.8.

the name chickadee applies to specific birds (in north america) in a specific genus within the family of tits apparently: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poecile

that was taken in portland, OR.

in the bay area i think i've only seen the chestnut-backed variety, but i haven't paid a lot of attention.

another from portland:

Portland makes sense for Black-capped Chickadee, as does Chestnut-backed in the bay area.

Carsten, until recently the european tits and the american chickadees were thought to be members of the same genus, Parus. Recent work suggests sufficient divergence that the american birds were separated into a new genus, Poecile.

Nice shots, Saph! Just my opinion, but the first shot would look really great in BW(IMO), and the last is really painterly!! What fantastic bokeH!!
I'm curious...why does everyone say the 3.4/180 APO is better than the 2.8/180?? Been looking at those on the bay, and prices reflect that too!! Anyone can chime in on that answer, btw!

Gregg, there are 3 versions of the 180/2.8: the first and very heavy one, with built-in tripod-socket, is supposed to be the weakest performer. The second version (E67) is a good to very good performer from what I have heard. The Apo-Elmarit 180/2.8 is one of the finest lenses ever made, but quite rare and expensive compared to the "old" Apo-Telyt 180/3.4. The Apo-Telyt was designed for great distances and won't focus as close as the other 180's, if memory serves (MFD of the Apo-Telyt is 2.5 meters).
I have the 180/3.4 and it's performance is excellent if the nut behind the camera is acting carefully.

Hi R thread posters and viewers,

I've been travelling quite a bit over the holidays and just got back from the SF Bay area.
I'm sorry I don't have the time to comment as much as I should.

LtZ -- Your photos keep inspiring me to go out and take more photos. Love the cowboys and the b+w silhouette shot. I have much to learn from you.
Greggf -- You are the "backbone" on this thread -- always polite and welcoming to all new posters. Love all your Lux 50 shots and from the 35 cron.
Jako and zhangyue -- Each of you have your very own distinct "signature" from your shots. Love them. Don't change a thing! Keep posting more.
Picture This! -- Love to see more from you too. The Maui shot is fantastic!
Worldinlens -- Amazing shots of your family! My favorite is #2.
Sebboh -- Amazing what you can accomplish with the 350mm. I, on the other hand, feel uncomfortable handling anything pass 100mm for manual focusing.
Jon -- Love to see more shots from you of the woods / forest.
Saph - Nice shots with the 180 Apo!

Here are a few night shots taken near the Union Square SF and Chinatown. All with 50 lux.

Thanks for looking,
