While it's a knock off, I have a friend who had this ordered and delivered to my house. It's a fantastic tripod though.

I thoroughly enjoyed the review when I read it the other day, I then also enjoyed the other wide angle recommendations people were offering in the earlier pages of comments. However the pissing match is kind of ridiculous guys.  :P

This was the first additional lens I bought for my kit many years ago, it's served me exceptionally well in all that time. I absolutely love going out and just playing with this little gem.

So I'm not the only one who's noticed this, I wonder what's up?

For landscapes why make extra work for yourself? Why not dial in an accurate hyperfocal distance calculation and take one photo that is in ideal focus. That video is a nice tutorial on how to stack images in post, but using such a small aperture can be detrimental to your overall sharpness.

I'd recommend you try out hyperfocal distances first, it's a single shot that requires minimal post processing.

Just my 2¢

I think we have written a CR bible here rather than ten commandments!

Jayson 8:21 And on that day the sun slung low in the sky, but yet upon the horizon were three slowly approaching figures of unknown origin. Surely had the traveller been carrying his trusted 200-400L he might have been able to discern the faces of these shifting shapes. Alas 'twas not the case, for he had been on a pilgrimage to the holy land, with merely his nifty fifty in tow … for creative practice and to rediscover his humble beginnings.

You shalt stay up late for an imminent announcement of a new xD series camera and bitch long afterwards that it can't also make a coffee.

This, too good.

Thou shalt honour thine film days.

Thou shall not lay with a Nikonian.

Thou shall not taketh the name of Canon in vain.

Thou shall not judge ye new camera based upon JPEGs alone.

Part of my business name is my last name, as it's fairly unique, but that was also to ensure that it would be noticeable, and I would know for a fact that nobody else would already have used it. I'm not a fan of having a lot of text or words in a watermark, instead a simplified version of my main logo or the font used for the business name. As previously stated I dislike a watermark that is too busy and derails my main purpose of enjoying the photo.

Just my 2¢

Add away! I'm always happy to see other peoples work!

I've learned to hate so many watermarks when I find they are too obvious, they draw my eye instead of the photograph itself. I use a shortened version of my company name, just the initials. To my eye they're out of the way, and blend into each photo yet are still visible enough that someone can't just rip off the image.

This is an older shot, but it's got the watermark.

We met Roger under less than ideal terms, we messed up with something and he called us on it. However, we quickly became friends once we corrected our error. I've been to Memphis a few times to see the operation and learn things. There is zero business relationship and I kind of wish we didn't call ourselves Lens Rentals Canada, as it has caused some confusion.

We do sell gear, but it's usually only in the fall.

My wife is now president/ceo/ringleader/dictator of LRC, but I will help out or answer questions if people need it.

I've actually rented lenses from LRC before, and haven't ever had a single bad experience.

All for a cover photo …

I've taken many photos in poor conditions, from the inside of a rain forest, to being on a boat in the ocean photographing whales, to inside of an abandoned coal mine, and outside in the frigid cold (-45ºC). The only issues I've ever had were condensation in the viewfinder, and on the front element of my lenses. I usually keep a microfiber cloth in my bag at all times, but I also keep silica packs in all of my bags. So that if there is any moisture or condensation, when I return the camera to the bag overnight any moisture will be drawn out.

Just my own experiences.
