I'd be grateful for any advice and your experiences with different macro lenses.
It says "any Thing shot with the 1DX"
Notice how the frames march closer as focus gets closer as though the lens zoomed.
I actually think it did zoom but I'm clueless how and/or why.
Why, thank you! Your shot is certainly a pleasure to see. What is your favorite genus?
6D + Sigma 180mm f/2.8. Blossom is 7mm across.
Windows 8 is a dual-mode operating system. On a desktop, if you prefer, you can still use the classic windows desktop all the time. You can boot to it and use it pretty much exclusively. The only explicit change is the removal of the start menu for the start screen. But the start screen works 100% perfectly well with mouse and keyboard (and, for that matter, it also works with a TV remote when using a Media Center remote control). There is absolutely NOTHING about Windows 8 that makes it difficult to use on the desktop with a kb/mouse. I've been doing it since day one. This is Microsoft's greatest mistake...not properly educating their customers as to what their OS can do. Windows 8 is Windows 7, with more. That's it. There hasn't been a loss of compatibility.
I'm pounding away on a keyboard right now, in Chrome, on the desktop, on a standard computer with no touch screen...in Windows 8.1. Touch is not a requirement in Windows 8. It's an option.
People just like to hate on Microsoft, even when they've done good. Windows 8 is the only truly universal platform that runs multiple devices, in multiple operating modes, simultaneously. Not even Apple has topped that, and I don't think they will. I purchased an original Surface Pro, because I'd been waiting for years to be able to have a fully touch-capable device for when I'm out roaming around, while not actually having to leave my full Windows desktop capabilities at home. I was probably one of the first people using Lightroom, Photoshop and EOS Utility on a Windows 8 tablet, tethered to my Canon 7D, out in the mountains, taking landscape photos and processing them with a pressure sensitive pen on the spot with a fully featured photo editing software (not some limited or otherwise gimped "app" as is the case on iPad.)
You're really aiming low with the pony. My threshold is a unicorn. But not your ordinary petting zoo unicorn. No, I want a unicorn who farts rainbows (pot of gold at the end included - leprechaun too!) and poops glitter. And not just regular old glitter. This is the most beautiful glitter you've ever seen with 48 stops of dynamic range and it's incredibly sharp too! It's sharpness is so otherworldly that the DxO charts turn black instead of intense green. But there's a built in safety protocol with this glitter so that users don't get cut - it disappears when you touch it, like an exploding bubble. And when it explodes all it leaves behind is visual euphoria, like when you saw boobies for the first time.
This unicorn dispenses hot fudge from it's horn. Why hot fudge? Because the tripod mount dispenses your favorite flavor of ice cream whenever you rotate the mode dial all the way around in a counter clockwise motion. THAT'S WHY!
THEN... I'll buy it.
