Right now it's only 9 pages long.

Any of you Nikon shooters have any experience with the 16-35 f4 VR? I understand the distortion can be tough below 20mm but is otherwise a sharp lens (according to all those online reviewers). I am looking at this for interior architecture. The 24 PC-E is on the wish list as well but I am not sure I am ready for that one just yet

Erich,

Jim,
You can add prophet to your business card (just use small font)!
I am trying to rationalize away the thought that I should bite the bullet and get the purpose built architecture lens and you are not helping . I am not a professional photographer (unlike you and others in this thread) but like have designs to move that way in the near future. The fiscally responsible side says get something that can be used for multiple purposes and sold rather easily if need be. The aggressive, quit leaving yourself an escape route, don't ever compromise your integrity, perfectionist side says bite the bullet and buy the $2,000 PC-E lens or you will always wonder if it mattered!

Well this turned into a psychology lesson rather quickly! I guess if it were easy everyone would do it and be good at it. Your answer was immensely useful and not boring at all - the bad thing is I had a good idea what your answer would be and I asked anyway...

Thanks all.


Not to be the one to push you over the edge, but there is a 24 PC-E on B&S right now:

Argh!, you people are making it far too easy to spend money on lenses!
Thanks for the opinions.

Tough on us both for sure Nick. I love every minute that I spend with each of them and they are all growing up so fast that it makes me realize how fleeting all of this is. I hope that Chandler's and my time together, and the myriad of experiences that we share will provide him with great memories, some life experience and confidence so he can better handle what life will inevitably throw at him down the line. Who knows, he might be the one that decides to pick up my cameras and carry on.

Here's a goofy thought: Why don't they develop or use a non-polluting sensing platforms (balloons/electric drones?) to sample/test pollution levels instead of adding to the problem?

*sigh*

Seems to me that Canon has clearly lost interest in the stills shooters who built its business.

My friend Butch has a place in the mountains above Pagosa Springs, CO. Seems that his neighbor's cows had strayed onto his property and were setting up camp in his meadow, eating his grass and fouling his pond. The neighbor was slow to do anything about it (Colorado law requires you to 'fence out' livestock, a holdover from the open range era) so when I showed up one day last week on my way home from Monterey, as certified nerds we did the only logical thing: we used two quadcopters to herd the cows back to the neighbor's place.

It worked, too.

That's a very old announcement, from March. NAB 2014 was in April. I think the current target date for announcements is Photokina in September.

In other news, the last surviving crew member of the Enola Gay has died:

Theodore VanKirk

I threw together a video from the externally mounted Garmin VIRB Elite, of yesterday's formation flight (I use the term loosely) with the Sinus Flex.
