love that first one, Charles
nothing wrong with CHEAP glass.... when they are being used by an EXPENSIVE photographer... :smile:
He was talking to me while and then it got quiet. I turned around to find him like that. Something about that old leather couch that makes you sleepy.

Thanks. Don't tell my clients I am expensive. :wink:

nice work Chas
Thanks. I thought I would post them here since family snap shots don't belong in the portraiture forum.

Nice shots and I agree, I have some great pics from my cheap 70-300 Sigma

Funny.....

At some point along the way I have had just about every pro lens that Nikon makes under 200mm. My favorite shots came from the 50 primes.

Charles,

that first shot is breathtaking! The B&W conversion is spot on!!!

How did you end up with a Tammy 28-300VC?

Thats straight from the Fuji S5. I set it to b&w, widest DR, hardest tone, and no sharpening or noise removal.

I have been playing a lot with 3rd party lenses lately. Now I have 2 Tamrons which are the 17-50/2.8 and the 28-300vc. Two Sigmas that are the 50-150/2.8 and the 100-300/4.

Mostly because they offer something that Nikon does not have. The 17-50 tamron is much smaller than the nikon. The 28-300 offers OK image quality in a very wide range with stabilization that is excellent. With great technique I can get sharp 2 second shots, handheld. :wink:

Thank you, but he did all the work. I just pushed the button.:wink:

Everything has a cost. Some is just less than others.

Thanks.

Oddly enough, I find that the D2x does better with red roses using the right setup, than my Fuji S5. That just baffles my mind at this point. Time to do some testing. :smile:
