    Showcase Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5

    For years I was firmly of the opinion that fisheye lenses were gimmicky, and that I'd never want or need one. Then I realized how they could be used for something other than making square buildings look funky--details-in-surroundings shots like yours, wide-angle macro shots, indoor documentary...

    Very nicely done, Judy. I'm impressed that you were able to get the willets in focus. Could you tell what focus mode you were using?

    Patrick -- I like how you've used the 7.5 for closeups of the cacti that still have plenty of the surroundings. Nicely done.

    Who says we can't do birds in flight?

    FWIW, I've really been stewing over the BIF issue lately, to the point that I've wondered if I should move on from m4/3 for wildlife photography--which I really don't want to do, and probably can't afford to do. So every session of camera-spec investigations makes me wonder if I'm better off...

    Live AV Out with G3 but not G5 - Why?

    I just got a AV-to-USB converter thingy (technical term) and connected my G3 into my computer (av port to standard G3 AV out cable to AV/USB converter to USB port). With the free "Debut" video capture program, I can get a live view of the viewfinder on the G3. I plugged a G5 in the same way, and...

    Showcase Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5

    Morten--that second one strikes me as an example of the ideal use for a fisheye. When you want to get view of a tight space with lots of detail, the distortion is a fine trade-off.

    If you have the 100-300mm, try some AF extension tubes. They've been really helpful for me.

    The butterfly? No, that's full frame. For some reason, a single butterfly seems relatively easy to approach, but if you spook one in a group, they're all gone. At least in my limited experience, with the common species around here. IOW, that's a totally groundless generalization. :rolleyes:

    how to deal with suspicion, anger, and the law

    Heh--mean-spiritedness; quick, shallow judgements; suspicion of the unfamiliar; a preference for conspiracy theories and thinking the worst over Occam's Razor (or Hanlon's); a need for drama so strong that they'll manufacture it whenever necessary. As Arlo Guthrie said, "Well--that's America."...

    That picture makes me think that the X100 must be smaller than I thought. I keep thinking of it as more like my GW690--not *that* big, but certainly larger than those film rangefinders. Wrong again.

    Killdeers can be maddening. You can hear them almost constantly at one of our favorite campgrounds, but they usually don't get really active and obvious until the light's gone. OTOH, I've seen them in asphalt parking lots. Still, "the killdeer always wins" is going down in my list of...

    G5s with m43 lenses vs. Fuji X-E1 with adapted lenses?

    FWIW, I tried the upscale/downscale method (modified to work with Silkypix and GIMP), and here's what I got: The modified version (on the right) does look a good bit smoother along the edges, but this is at pretty high magnification. It'd be interesting to see what difference this makes...

    In my case, that's not about privacy, it's about ugly. :smile: Here in Virginia, there are acidic reactions to all kinds of personal interactions, and that's just one of them. Unfortunately "southern hospitality" has been largely replaced by suspicion and short fuses. I grew up in south...

    Upcoming Panasonic Lenses (and Oly too)?

    I don't really understand all the *fast* wide-angle primes. Something less expensive at 2.8 or even 3.5 would be fine, although I guess it would compete with the zooms. But I don't need fast wide-angle enough to pay the prices for them. But then I'm happy with just one fast lens (the 20mm)...

    how to deal with suspicion, anger, and the law

    As a bureaucrat, photographer, and cyclist, I have gotten more than my fair share of random abuse. (Of the three, photography has by far raised the fewest problems.) Fear, suspicion, and a general need to alleviate boredom with drama seem to be widespread. All that said, my experience as a...

    Here's another nice thing about using the 100-300 with extension tubes -- I was taking some frog pictures when this damselfly landed right in front of me.

    G5s with m43 lenses vs. Fuji X-E1 with adapted lenses?

    I'm really intrigued by the newish Fujifilm cameras with the X-Trans sensor. I also admit that a digital camera that works/feels like my old GW690 is something I've been wanting for years. However, the only way I could remotely afford to get an X-Trans camera would be to buy a used X-E1 and...
