I should clarify, if you don't own L lenses, then you may want to take extra precaution with your cheaper lenses.  All my glass is L or Zeiss, so I'm not sure on the build quality of the lesser lenses, but from what I have read, it is not quite as good.  In that case it might be wise to protect them somewhat.  It really just depends on what gear you have.  Sorry about not being too clear on the first post.

So your first lens was an 'L' lens?  :o

Ha, Ha, Ha, We must love our equipment , and take care them as best as we can---No bang around.
Yes, Thanks, I already adjust the Harness's Locks  and let  both Cameras move to my Front Side of my body, NO MORE BANGING of the lens hood  ON MY BACK AT MY butts.
Yes, Sir, I learn from my friends in every days.
Have a great Sunday.

+1, I may have 'pro' gear, but I treat it with respect :)

I don't believe I've posted in this topic before, so here we go:


I have a lot of travel photography on this site as well; at the moment I'm working on getting the albums from my recent trip to Japan on-line:


Enjoy :)

You impress me every time Surapon! How do yuo prevent camera's bumping into each other as you carry them around, or doesn't it matter? I always feel bad when my gear bumps into other gear as I carry it around.

Last of the sunlight for a day over Givendale in the North of England

5D + 35 f2

Nice shot, is that the 'old' 35mm f/2?

My new friend Willem, when he was 7 months of age. He just celebrated his first birthday a month ago :) I took these pics with an Ixus 132 (Canon Elph 115 IS ).

Well I am going to defend DPP. I like it and use it with all my pictures - personal and work. It is easy to use and I have no issues with lag or any other negatives as described above. I only shoot in RAW and I like and appreciate what DPP offers me. Plus it does not take up much space, so you might as well download it and give it a whirl.

+1, and I like the fact that camera settings are stored to the images the same way as they're handled in camera, lens corrections etc etc. No nasty sidecar files or cumbersome databases needed because the edits are stored to the files themselves.  I really prefer DPP for raw processing of my images (I prefer to shoot in a 'neutral' style). I do however use ACDSEE pro to browse and select my raws before editing (it's faster).

I'm forced to use Lightroom for my Sony RAWS, because it's the best option available (Sony's raw processor is slow, slow, slow) but to me Lightroom is counterintuitive, and I manage to get the results from it that I like, but in truth I don't really like it at all and continue to use DPP for my Canon photo's.

It's interesting to see this topic again, I've bought and sold so much, my signature has almost completely changed :D

Good to see that the 24-105L thread is still alive. The 24-70 f4 IS is definitely better than the 24-105L in the 24-70 range, but the 24-105 is much better at 71-105.

My 24-105 is very much alive, it's my core travel-lens that I couldn't do without (my travel kit typically consists of 17-40 f/4L, 24-105 f/4L, 70-300mm f/4-5.6L and a 35mm f/2 or 50 mm f/1.8 MkI).

For any other application where maximum flexibility is needed, the 24-105 is my go-to lens. Helped by good high iso there's nothing to replace it imho. I consider it my mega-zoom lens (within reason).

Note that I sold my 24-70 f/2.8 in favor of a Sigma 35mm. For such a limited zoom range I rather have the creative flexibility of a prime ;)

Shirakawago, Japan. One of Japan's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The site is located in the Shogawa river valley stretching across the border of Gifu and Toyama Prefectures in central Japan.The villages in this area are well known for their houses constructed in the architectural style known as gasshō-zukuri.

King Charles Cavalier Spaniel - she's about 4 1/2 months old.

Nice! Shot using one of your vintage lenses, no doubt?

That's actually the Tamron 70-200 VC lens.  It actually has a really, really nice OOF rendering.  It has its limitations, but is actually an amazingly competent lens.

Interesting, it does have that characterful vintage look to it. Great stuff ;)

I haven't used mine for a while, but its quality inspired me to get the 12mm Samyang for my Sony NEX. I recieved it last week and hope to take it for a spin next weekend.

Not sure this is 'expansive' enough to qualify as a landscape, but...

dpc, thanks for all your contributions but maybe you should consider what classifies as 'your best landscapes'. Not to be too negative but you're almost turning this topic into a personal photo blog...
