    Is this with the D5100 & 1.8? It does indeed look great and you seem to nail the white balance. I'm struggling to get WB looking right most of the time.

    I've had my Sigma 1.4 matched to the 40D so sharpness is 90% of the time spot on. Although I have noticed it's not great over 8.0 and flare control is what fucking flare control? Also sometimes the whole setup goes a bit mental and you just get a bad image. Still a good shot with a lens you love is worth the let downs!

    Still working my way through my holiday snaps... I seem to have taken an awful lot of blurry photos of monkeys though.

    Here are few that seemed reasonably ok:

    Yes I was offered an unused B&W 10 stop 77mm ND for 40 so grabbed it, it's slightly better than the Haida ebay one I had. I've also got the Lee Seven5 version now too but it's a faff trying to use it with a grad too. That shot was at ISO800 but I only noticed that from the EXIF as there was almost no noise unless you looked for it. That little 35mm lens is amazing. Well built too unlike the cheap Canon lenses.

    I haven't posted anything in here for far too long. Anyway, I have been shooting some women's cricket recently. Mostly at 200mm which means some generous cropping is required, but God bless those 5Dmk2 megapixels.

    I also accidentally ordered a Sigma 150-500mm... oops. I've had the briefest of plays with it and it's certainly not a low light lens, but I'm going to give it a go in some daylight soon.

    Anyone got any experience of super-telephoto lenses? Advice/thoughts would be appreciated.

    So, I went out for an hour this evening with the Sigma 150-500mm and it was pretty damn nice actually. Golden hour leading into low light. I left the camera to sort out the ISO, so it often went to 3200, but the results were pretty encouraging. Should be perfectly good during daylight!

    Shoot in RAW and adjust in post process? I always prefer to do it that way for a number of reasons :)

    Took a trip to Down House (Charles Darwins home) but forgot my camera. Luckily my phone has a decent camera (for a phone) and I got this lucky snap in the gardens.

    Also on holiday next week, so will hopefully remember my camera, and get some good shots. Having a week on the Isle Of Wight with the missus, daughter, and in-laws.

    I'm properly downsizing everything. Nikon system is staying but I don't need the filter system as I have a round big stopper, and I never intended ending up with 2 compacts. Probably getting an LX7 to replace the other 2 so I have a properly pocketable compact again which the X10 isn't.

    Wedding sounds fun!

    Some great photos there Tomo; really nice compositions and colours.

    I've taken pics at a few weddings and it kinda reminds me of some I did at a Bangladeshi Muslim one a couple of years ago. I think there's something so much more interesting about shooting weddings of non-standard Christian variety that makes them feel like your doing something a little more creative than the usual fare.

    I wouldn't mind doing a Turkish or Jewish one if only to see something a little different really!

    Thanks Slint. I'm keen to do a traditional British wedding as well... This wedding was the first one I've ever been to! Let alone photographed.

    Help me please.

    I misplaced the lens cap for my Panasonic 14mm lens and need to buy a replacement.

    How do I know what size to buy? Is it 46mm? I never understood what that o with a | through means.

    I shot a roll of film in a 1950s Kodak Duaflex II. Double exposures were accidental but worked out quite well.

    I tried doing a self-macro of ye old eye the other day.

    Reckon I could get even closer if I didn't have to control the shutter myself.

    Nice. I really like the texture in that.

    Next up, build your own ring flash
    Buy a remote controll for the shutter.

    A shot with my 10 stop fitted, only the second time I have used it really. Was the middle of a hot day so not perfect by any means.

    And I couldn't resist, and bought a Sigma DP2 Merrill after all.

    Shit photos by anyone's standards, I am sorry, taken quickly in the lunch break today, hand-held, but they show the quite astonishing sharpness and level of detail. No sharpening at all here, just a RAW->JPG conversion with some minor WB and exposure tweaking.

    Err... those are nuts! Crazily sharp! The resolution is impressive too if you zoom in on the yellow sign in the second image, for instance.

    Never even knew the camera existed.

    Impressive, also I'm stealing that first image, that's some good reference for something I'm working on :p

    Seconded, some of the comparison shots over at the luminous landscape review of it are like night and day. Its a pretty specific use camera but totally blows away any other small camera in that field.
