BTW - if you are using a Dx format vs full frame, you'll get more zoom - in fact, every focal length will be multiplied by 1.6 if you are shooting with a Canon Dx format - so, 100-400 will be 160 to...

I think the 70-200 may be the sharpest lens I have ever owned.

My first 100-400 Canon lens was crap. I took mostly test shots and then sold it about a year later. Then, some time later, I...

Well... it's all a question of what you want to be able to do with the lens.

With the 70-200 2.8, you'll be able to get that really nice bokeh for portraits and also have the ability to shoot...

I think you're right - but for other reasons.

As for the color shift - I figured it out. My error - I forgot I had the phone set to remove the blue light for less eye strain. For the most part,...

Seems everything is a bit more "colorful" on my Samsung, specifically in the warmth and orange tinge, but the difference apparently is much more pronounced with warmer scenes. Proportional, even - a...

Arg - I was hoping the embedded image would appear as it should with the link looking different, but they both look identical . Yellow on my desktop and orange on my cell phone.

Color rendition on RP

Curious as to what everyone is seeing when they view this Amtrak NEC photo I had posted on August 10th.

My first thought - too much on the bottom, and the left. Not much, but does look slightly awkward.

Word for word, in fact.

I looked at cropping it - thinking, chop some to the right, but then noticed a typical 1200 dpi X 800 dpi kept the same look yet chopped a sliver from the right and left side. I like it as is, though...

Inconsistency has always been a prime issue here, but again,

Not much change with Auto-contrast, tone, nor color, though it did warm it a bit, maybe.
