    thanks ..I see that now... is the electronic I.S. worth a stop or two?... that's ok.. a little help.. and the lenses I use are usually fast.. good news it works for both. ...I wonder if it ..'plays well' with third party I.S.?.. I have no complaints ..just curiosity

    /// you know ..that seems like the real use to me too.. 24-240 sounds good (if it can photograph a star as a point) and then carry my 14mm f2.8L II as a super-wide...since it is small (but now it needs a converter) eventually there will be wider than 14mm (maybe 11-22) ..with quality... in...

    did we determine the battery here?... I would like to have std batteries... from 5 series.. but I believe it is too (physically) small ... to be that ... a standard battery would add this to a lot of bags.. especially if it IS $1300..... /// update: AND a free or... nearly-free EOS converter...

    Ended: Your favourite new third party lens of 2018

    Well I ordered the Sig 105 f1.4.. tried it carefully along with sig 135 f1.8. and I believe the 105 bokeh quality was slightly better than my 85L mk ii ..that I sold... but I returned to the sig 135 f.8 because it fit in the bag better and was very close to as-good bokeh but sharper.. 105 was...

    Butterflies, Moths and Assorted Insects...

    lots of fun stuff here.... thanks for it all ... here I use the Sig 135 f1.8 with a 20mm extension tube... I had JUST tried the Sig 105 f1.4.... but even though the bokeh was as good as my 85 f1.2 mk II.... it was just too heavy..and big.. it crowded the camera bag.. so I got the 135 f1.8...

    first shots from my sigma 105mm f1.4

    yes ... I saw that.. not so with 135..for me and others.. odd.. well now I feel good about my choice.. 135 f1.8 the 105 sharpness seemed 'NEARLY' as good as the 135.. but for me I chose the 135 because of ....reach ... size/weight ....the edge in sharpness.. it seems coma was there for the 135...

    first shots from my sigma 105mm f1.4

    yes 50MP is important info IMO too here is a lightweight review.. https://petapixel.com/2018/07/09/sigma-bokeh-master-105mm-f-1-4-art-vs-the-85mm-f-1-4-and-135mm-f-1-8/ but for myself I tried to make the background 'busy' and the 105 f1.4 seemed able to smear the objects ...nicely.. ... I...
