Looks similar to the Canon, same specs in terms of elements as the canon.
Are the Chinese lens copies now coming?

These are interesting rig-ups; I got a Reflecta CrystalScan 7200 a few birthdays ago but have been too occupied/lazy to use it so far. I am however saving it for the day when I feel motivated to scan some old (or new) material.
I wonder why nobody has so far posted any pictures that show the photographed and processed results.
Congrats JD, but I'd advise staying away from either of those if all you've got is $15. The drink is likely to come in a 1.75L plastic bottle and won't leave you feeling too well. The other could result in a nasty legal or medical bill , if you don't get mugged in the process.
Natty Lite and Taco Bell might be more realistic and a tad bit healthier.
On the other point, welcome to selling your photography. You'll find out how individual taste really is when you sell your work. The stuff you love rarely sells well, and vice versa. The effort you spend taking a photo and editing it means almost nothing in most genres. Only the final image matters. If you don't believe me, here's a sampling of my work that one of longtime clients has chosen, and let me tell you, the rest of the work I've sent them for consideration is MUCH better. All of these shots were actually what I'd consider "outtakes" - shots that I took because I was there, not because I intended them for use/sale. And they have used them for magazine ads, billboards, and huge prints in their branches!:
thanks for your feedback - especially about the Marumi, as I hadn't heard much about them before.I prefer Melitta or Folgers filters. Disposable, and inexpensive. they have some vignetting though
photonius, thanks. You forgot to mention they biodegrabable too! Not too sure about their UV filtering ability, but might make for a romantic misty feel to the shot as the lion is tyrying to rip my face off
And you can use them to pad your wounds...
Seriously, from all I've seen, a UV/protector filter on these big teles is best avoided unless you have a special reason.
I've compiled filter info a while back, including links to the lenstip.com tests http://photonius.wikispaces.com/Filters
as pointed out, the marumi seems quite ok.
Lots of hate towards this lens (rightly so perhaps) but not many suggestions other then buying another camera or just using a 300m and cropping.
Are there no other decent long lens/scope alternatives to consider?
Hi All, has anyone used a Samyang 650-1300mm lens,
I'm just after an opinion if it's good/bad?
I haven't made a living by photography in a very long time (I find more joy in being a hobby shooter) but it seems to me that you were present at the wedding as a guest of the contracted photographer for a learning experience. I sense an ethical dilemma in "poaching" sales even though the bride preferred your shots. In fact, I would have turned down her request to view them. If you had been a guest of the bride or groom at the wedding then I wouldn't see the same problem.
I agree. This is an ethics problem.
You are going to have to chalk this up to being a learning experience... if you are doing a job, find out what your responsibilities are beforehand and who your images belong to....
There are two big questions here that will decide your actions:
1) Do the images that you shot belong to you, or do they belong to the event photographer?
2) Will you be taking money away from the event photographer? Should you be sharing the revenue from any extra work with them, and in what proportion?
In the end... the bride MUST get the pictures, regardless of who she has to pay or even if it is free. The last thing you want is to have your name attached to an angry bride who has been denied pictures of her wedding day. This will create a situation that can destroy any good will and reputation that you are trying to build... even if you have to give them away for free, chalk it up to good marketing....
Is it just me, or does this press release sound like an April Fool's post?
"enables shots to be taken four centimeters closer than with rival lens models, an advantage for camera operators working in tight locations such as studio spaces or on-site home-improvement reality television locations"
"enables news shooters to capture “head and shoulders” shots from distances further away than previously possible"
"Other important changes in the Canon HJ18ex7.6B portable HD zoom lens that further enhance user convenience include . . . deletion of the glossy logo plate"
Here is what the same scene from each image looks like when enlarged to the same size.... SX-50, Tamron 150-600, and Tamron 150-600 and 1.4X teleconverter.
In this case, it seems like the Tamron with the teleconverter resolves the most detail, the bare Tamron is second, and the SX-50 comes in last.... but when you consider I paid $300 for the SX-50 on sale and it fits into a coat pocket, it is a surprisingly good performance for such a camera.
Hi all, I'm an amateur photographer in the us. I will be heading to India and China and need some advice on a new camera. I've never owned an dslr and not so sure the weight is something I want to tackle right now. Not to mention any security issues, I don't want to lose my first dslr.
Anyway I'm looking to take some great photos while I am there. I really want the quality and ease of use. Something I can transport and pull out at a moments notice. I'd use my cell phone but I'm just not over impressed with the image quality. I've got a cheap point and shoot. But I'm looking for something more. GPS, image quality, low light, and colors will be very important (especially in india). I could be talked into a dslr but again this is my first. I've had time to use my cousins 7D but noticed it was very heavy. I do like the way it fit in my hand And made me want to take pictures. Something about the right camera that says use me.
Do you have any advice for me on what to buy? Thanks.
