    Dealing with an Ebay Return?

    I can relate, Jonathan. I've done a lot of buying/selling on eBay, including selling a Sony NEX 7 that turned out to be a similar situation as yours. That NEX 7 had very low mileage, and generally in excellent shape except for two tiny scrapes that I had to work hard to even show in...

    Very nice, Elmar - interesting perspective.

    A day with the X-T1 and 50-140/2.8. First at a local zoo: This one was through crappy plexiglass, and recovered as best I could in post processing. Then our zoo at home, where our Keeshond was diggin' the snowy conditions:

    He is indeed both gentle and soulful. He communicates with his eyes, with an intensity that feels very human.

    This is Sammy, our Keeshond. Normally I process from the RAW files, but often the SOOC JPEG is good. This is one of those SOOC JPEGs.

    My Nikon Gear is Disappearing (thanks to Fuji)

    My wife and I just returned from a few days in Las Vegas. We took two X-T1 bodies and 8 lenses plus spare batteries, a laptop, and a tablet, all in one camera bag. My one D800 body and four lenses weighs more than all of my Fuji gear, and requires a larger bag. Don't get me wrong, I love my...

    Can't recall if I've posted these before Mood, but they are all from my Fuji 55-200. I think it's an excellent lens, and carry it with me most of the time. It's going with me on a trip to Las Vegas in a few days.

    Replacing heavy gear with mirrorless?

    I can't say I've quite replaced my D800 and Nikkor lenses with my Fuji XT-1's and Fuji X lenses yet, but the D800 has only been used once since January. Yes, there are things the big Nikon dslr gear does better (flash, for example). However the one time my D800 got used since January was a few...

    A classifiation of photographers, of sorts!

    They also forgot the lens/camera design expert who has never actually worked in either field, but knows everything about it anyway. Most of these experts live in DPReview's forums, but also visit other worlds such as Facebook.

    X-T1 and 56/1.2 Landscapes

    Indeed - both the 16mm and 90mm look very useful. I'm also looking forward to reviews on the 140-400 f/4-5.6. I have a 300mm f/4 AF-S Nikon that's a great lens, but the 400mm on the Fuji would be a field of view equivalent to 600mm. That could be fun! I've never had anything that long...

    X-T1 and 56/1.2 Landscapes

    I think you're right, Merlin. There are other Fuji lenses coming for me to spend the money on anyway. :)

    X-T1 and 56/1.2 Landscapes

    Very nice, Merlin. I've seen a few other landscape shots (tons of portraits and casual people shots, of course). It seems to be right at home in the landscape venue. I already have the XF 60mm, and keep wondering it the 56mm would be worth the $$. Still not sure. Have you had any experience...

    Nice shots of Chili, BTW Darren. I wasn't aware of the Hungarian Vizsla breed - handsome looking dog! I particularly like the top one - fine portrait.

    Thanks Darren! I've shot images of that Red Panda many times over the years (or one that looked just like it, anyway). This one shot with the X-T1 is my favorite so far.

    Iowa Photographers featured on local show

    Thanks for the link, Ken. I grew up in Iowa, so will enjoy watching this show.

    I love my wife!!!

    Happy birthday, Nick! And what a great present you got - and a great wife, too! If it makes you feel any better, we were at a beer tasting event last night where some stranger actually referred to me as "Pop". That was a first for me, and I didn't even get a D810. :)

    Five years ago this month...

    Good idea for a thread, John. I had fun looking back. Here are shots from a July 4th 2009 celebration in Minneapolis. These were made with my (since replaced) D700. Met this young Spiderman who was having fun with a torch light. Here's a young woman who wandered about playing violin...

    Fascinating, Dave. This caught my attention in part because my oldest known ancestors were in Wiltshire County. Our oldest record of my ancestors in that area dates to about the same period as this church in Devon. I have long wished to visit southwestern England. Your images of this church...

    I believe that's where I landed also, Gordon - two up from the smallest. Much better success with that than with going smaller. Haven't tried going larger still - maybe next time out.

    Forgot to mention that I found a larger AF focus point size worked better than a smaller one. Larger made for faster AF, and better odds of acquiring focus quickly.

    The big trick with AF for these birds seemed to be getting focus acquisition in the first place (they were flying fast). After that, if I managed to keep them in the frame, tracking worked pretty well.

    Tried my hand at photographing birds with the X-T1 and 55-200 today. These guys were very fast, giving me fits trying to keep them in the frame. Still, I got a few shots.

    My Images Stolen and Published

    Normally, I'm also very annoyed when I find my images have been "used" elsewhere on the internet without my knowledge or consent. I've had it happen several times, usually fairly innocently by people who weren't claiming to be the photographer, but rather liked the photo. But I have also had...

    Finally - a beautiful 70 degree F day! Took our dogs to a local dog park, and let them enjoy the day too. Sat on a bench next to a guy with his D800 and Sigma "Bigma" 50-500 (??) lens, who cradled my X-T1 with XF 55-200 attached, and noted his lens alone weighed more than my combo. He did get...

    Thanks John. I agree that PN still is the best bet for resolution on a PC platform. I use both PN and Capture One, as I find sometimes I like the output better from C1, and both are actually close in terms of resolution. Although I use LR for shots from my Nikon D800, I generally don't like...

    My X-T1 body finally arrived. I've been too busy to get out to play with it, but did take a quick portrait. Here is one of my favorite models. This was shot on an overcast day with the 18-55 kit lens. It's from a raw file, processed in PhotoNinja.

    Many nice images, Piter. I especially like this one for the dramatic lighting, and a sense of mystery in the lighted interior areas. Makes me wonder what's in there.

    Thanks again, Gordon! The aquarium shots surprised me - it was very dark! Fortunately those creatures aren't speed swimmers. :)
