    Great pictures Ronnie!

    A polarizing filter (PL or CPL) would give you ~1 stop, and might help cut through the smoke a bit as well.

    Awesome shots, Ron, as we've come to expect from you. I'm still learning and still having trouble getting C-AF to work well for me. Got some shots at the Kaneohe Bay Airshow with the Blue Angels last week. Some OK, but some not so good. Still a lot of work in progress. Thanks for the great tips! That's super helpful.

    I'd love to have one, but $200 USD for a filter call it $250 CAD is not an easy purchase for the few times I would need it (most of the time I can get by with LOW ISO and 1/8000 and live with the glare).

    Thanks for taking the time to calculate and provide all of that data.

    Next year I'll meet you there.

    Great images really do like the ones where you have used the fish eye lens.
