  1. If you have access to Zyxel's git repository you probably could do that.
  2. Very Image quality is close to the 2.8 but it weighs half as much, and it cost me about 350 euro on sale IIRC. Favourite lens after the 300 PF.
  3. I dunno, we've got to work against the national stereotypes somehow A while back we went out in the Black Forest, I thought I'd give landscapes a go. Nikon D500, Tamron 70-210 f/4 at 70mm (105mm FF equivalent), 1/160 sec, ISO 320, f/9 I quite like the way that telephoto lenses pull the background in closer. Makes things like this valley look rather dramatic, with the houses nestled in the foreground. There was a lot of fog that day, luckily it cleared up a bit in the afternoon.
  4. A human's natural field of view is approximately the same as the FoV from a 50mm lens on a full-frame camera (or a ~35mm lens on an APSC sensor).
  5. This is an approximation of the "zooming in" that you'll see using an APSC camera over a "full frame" camera with a full-frame lens (what is outside the black circle is outside of the field of view of the lens): The black circle is the image circle projected by the lens into the camera body (what is outside of the circle is outside of the field of view of the lens). The sensor only gets the middle of the image circle projected onto it. The blue rectangle is about what a full-frame sensor would show as the image, the red rectangle is the equivalent of a cropped (or "APS
  6. Is that a playstation CPU? I'd maybe have gone to f/8 to get more of the details around the chip in focus, otherwise don't have much to complain about On a walk yesterday we came across a greater spotted woodpecker. Nikon D500, Nikkor 300mm f/4 PF; 1/800s, f/4, ISO 125
  7. There's some nice little details in the menus that have changed with the iis, like the ability to reverse the focussing ring, AF Fine Tune for zoom lenses and new buttons that can be assigned to the custom buttons.
  8. RAID protects you from hardware failures (to varying degrees). Backups protect you from data loss.
  9. Or even "problem exists between keyboard and screen"?
  10. The latitude I got from work has a camera cover built in, the XPS series don't?
  11. The only lens I'd consider spending a lot of money on is the Nikon 500 f/5.6 PF. 500mm in the same package (size and weight) as a 70-200.
  12. I'm more than satisfied with my Tamron 70-210. Most cameras that were made in the last 4-5 years have such improved high-ISO performance over even 10 years ago that you can easily add another stop of ISO if you really need to without worrying. Where you used to have to stop at 1600 you can now go to 3200 or even 6400 before you start to get noticeable noise from overdriving the sensor (not that you need to get that nailed at the time of shooting with the ISO-invariant sensors in cameras anyway ). Sure, if you're earning your keep from your photography you'll want to go with the 2.8
