I can imagine the AF/MF and AF range limiter switches are a little hard to get to in a hurry, esp on a pro body?
That...or you go to flip the AF/PF/MF switch and hit the lens mount release instead?
Thanks wtlloyd...I'll give those a try tonight.
Are there any efficiencies to be gained by using different hard drives for cache or photo storage. All of my photos are their own HDD so I could use that drive or my normal C: drive for cache and such. Thoughts?
I've been building 1:1 previews lately and I haven't seen much of a change. It's so slow that when I try to select a photo, I have to let the mouse hover over the photo for an extra few seconds because if I move the mouse away, it will select whatever I am hovering over at the time, up to 3-5 seconds after I clicked a mouse. That sounds trivial, but it's excrutiating when I am trying to cull through 2,000 images from a shoot.
Current (old) lens is f/4.5-5.6, this one will have a larger objective so bigger, heavier glass...
How do you figure that? Same ratio at the long end - 400/5.6 = 71.4mm diameter element. 100/4.5 = 22.2mm, 100/4 = 25mm, both much smaller than dictated by the long end, i.e that's where the limitation is, not the wide end.
This probably sounds laughable to anyone used to using the super zooms but I'm disappointed that the weight is going up instead of down. Down has been the trend on all the newly announced lenses that come to mind. Perhaps my attitude will change once the new version has been released but right now "heavier" is a deal killer for me.
