They've got a sort of film noire look to them.

I hate this forum lol as after my purchase of the 85 1.2 i am now considering the 300 2.8 2 and 2x extender to get me started on wildlife so thanks guys i tell myself its an investment as the lens if kept well will retain much of its valueI actually sold my 100-400 for about £100 less than I bought it, so not bad for a four year rental and my 300 f/2.8 (MkI) is now worth £400-500 more than I paid for it I think.

I had seen that comparison. My crops above prove that even one cheap filter can affect the image quality. BUT....The top one looks to have a little more contrast, unless lighting changed slightly.
Try this test. I will upload these two pics. One was taken with a cheap filter and one without. See if you can pick which is which without cheating. (IE don't save it to your PC and zoom in) Just look at them here on the website. I will reveal which is which after a few people take a guess.
I am just trying to show that in a 100% zoom, you CAN tell them apart. But can you viewing it normally? I bet most can't. Unfortunately I had to size them down a little bit to post here but the quality is still there. The full size look identical to what you see here.

Yet many people like this do buy DSLRs and think they can take the same photos that professionals can.
now he is complaining that everything is "so unsharp" with his DSLR when he takes pictures for his ebay auctions.
i (tried to) teach him about aperture but he still doesn´t really gets why, with his 190 euro P&S everything was sharp and now his pictures are "unsharp".
"there must be a way this DSLR makes sharp photos from back to front without all this raising ISO because of smaller aperture stuff ... or buying a speedlight??"
DOF is some strange concept for people who only shoot with a P&S before.
he also complains that his images don´t show as much details as mine. "you are sure this camera is not broken? your camera makes much better images".
i still try to teach him a bit.... but it´s hard work.
I don't think I'm there with my ID, but I know I recognise them from images I've seen (which is bugging me ).Mushrooms of some variety! They're like little Umbrella Mushrooms!
Nice capture Ken. Marasmius ?
Thank you Kernuak and Sporgon! They were quite delicate and tiny... A joy to find and shoot but I'll have to leave it to your good guesses, I have none and no knowledge regarding them, except that I really like the edible ones!!

Wow! That's an amazing place!
Mushrooms of some variety! They're like little Umbrella Mushrooms!They may be porcelain fungus. They look like some sort of Mycenoid anyway.
I still have my 7D. The plan was that the MkIII would replace the MkII for landscapes, macri and low light, but the first itm the light started dropping last year, the MkIII came out and the 7D went in, then it was another year before it came out again. I then realised just how twitchy the AF is on it compared to the MkIII and missed shots as a result.Agreed Richard and thank you! I loved my 7d and I don't miss it a whole lot, as my 5D MkIII certainly took away the pain of letting it go, rather quickly!Another image from the old 7D and the 18-135mm Kit lens!It just shows you can get decent landscape images even with bodies not necessarily designed for that sort of work.
Looking back at my settings, I have to wonder, what in the world was I thinking? Why didn't I take that image at 18mm or 24mm? I think there were some images I took on that trip where I must have thought that I would lose the sharpness if I was to wide, who knows... Live and learn I suppose and as you and I have mentioned previously, nothing really bad to say about my 7D, I loved owning it!
In fact I was surprised to see you made the move when you did to the 5d3... I had a feeling you were going to wait it out for the 7D MkII... Like me, I'm sure you have no regrets at this point!
All the best!
