For me English is a fourth language

Wow, I'd have never guessed that ! Your written English is better than mine, and I'm as English as a Red London Bus, or Fox Hunting, depending upon how politically correct I choose to be  ;)

Agreed on your command of the English language, nice job for a fourth language!

I would have guessed you were a Texan, J.R. is a common name in Texas.

I only speak two languages....English and American...but I'm working on a third - Canadian(but not the French part) ::)

Back and forth like gay marriage.

    Those who like the honda,...24-105 please continue to like it.
Those that like good lenses,....also job well done.

To the dude advocating flare,....Sorry man,...you do not need flare to feel artistic.
In fact,....please try to be artistic without flare.
Exaggerated flare went out of style for at least 2 years now.
Same as making black and white photographs with one element of color in it.
Except for the people in Krakozhia,... everyone knows that by now.
"But did you know the pyramids were actually a mistake?" or,..." Did you know that some owls are not that smart?"

Good luck to all.

My head hurts after reading your post. ???

I don't see any meaningful differences, if your point is to show that a zoom like the 24-105 performs as well as anything else in normal shooting conditions then you have done so and that's a good point for everyone to keep in mind.

I think it's that simple.

Yes, the 24-105 in normal conditions is a fine lens and can hold its own even when compared to quality primes.

The British English usage is the ending "ice" for the noun and "ise" for the verb. E.g., I would advise you that the advice is to practise the practice of grammar. Americans use "ise" in all cases.

Sorry to disagree, but I am an American, and I was taught the correct usage of each in school.

Alan...I think you meant  to write that Americans use "ice" not "ise" for the word practice. (I'm from the US)   Americans always use practice, not practise.  (Even as I tried to write practise the spellcheck keeps trying to correct me).  I wonder if the spellcheck does that if you live in the UK?

DJL...Americans never use the word "practise"...so in the US there would be no "correct usage" of each...unless you mean that it would be correct to use "practise" when communicating with a Brit.  ;)

Also....There, their, and they're are misused so frequently it's shocking to me.

I think that the people that make these types of spelling errors don't understand how they are perceived by some people.

Accidentally doing it when quickly posting something is one thing, but doing it multiple times in a single sentence or paragraph reveals insight not only into the education levels achieved by the writer, but also into their concern for how they present their work.  In this day an age, you can google search how to correctly use a word, there's no excuse.

When you sit down to write something, you usually have time to get the message communicated correctly, and so for those that don't get it "right", it's laziness, lack of education on the subject, or not caring about the quality of their work....or mostly likely some combination of the three. 

Occasionally we all make mistakes, fine, but repeatedly making a simple mistake is very "telling" of who you are as a person...IMO.

It's a judgmental world we live in.

Touchdown catch:

Bingo!  Perfect timing!

at the end of the day, the priest was wrong to deliver the message with the words he used, the look on his face, and the tone of his voice.   it was all very unpleasant when it didn't need to be..

a smile, a firm yet polite request, and a gentle tone is what I would expect in that setting.  I think that's what most people would expect from a priest, and that's why it's uncomfortable for many to watch.

This shot is with the 70-200, but I took out my 5d3 for one period of hockey last night (which I hadn't done since getting the 1dx)...wow, 6fps seems slow once you've become used to 12fps.

Question for anyone...has anyone else tried setting the back a/f button to 14fps?  I fooled around with it last night for the first time and I think it will come in handy in certain situations.   I'll be using it again.

Two very different birds both photographed early this AM and both on the same tree at the same time.  The eagle watched with curiosity as the magpie hopped from branch to branch.  Shot in available light, on monopod, 1DX and 600II.

Very nice shots!
