    Lens Topics Re: Likely New Pro Lenses

    But the CoC is dependent upon the enlargement, so if you crop and then enlarge the image to the size of the original you are indeed changing the CoC and hence the DOF... thus Julie's factual caveat...

    Lens Topics Re: Likely New Pro Lenses

    True enough Steve... I'm simply saying that in my experience seldom is f/2.8 @ 300mm a good choice for adequate depth of field so the tradeoff of smaller, lighter, and cheaper at the expense of less...

    Lens Topics Re: Likely New Pro Lenses

    In the context of the 300mm f/4 I would have phrased that "Less glass, less weight, and a more useable depth of field." ;-)

    Hi OlyGuy...

    There is nothing inherently wrong with using DOF charts and hyperfocal distances, but their use has the distinct possibility of leading you by the nose into 'wasting' precious depth...

    Camera Topics Re: Help me win the "crop sensor" argument

    Any sensor that is smaller than the size of the designed image circle of a particular lens is indeed a crop sensor in regard to that lens.

  8. Lens Topics Re: Is your 150mm F2 loud when focusing manually?

    The 150 f/2 is indeed louder than others I have when manually focusing, but I wouldn't refer to mine as 'very loud'... just more audible than smaller lenses.

    A whole host of great shots Jim!

    For what it's worth, I have had the very same experience with the 150 + EC14 and the 150 + EC20. The former combination tends to front focus for me but the...

  13. Lens Topics Re: Another great deal (maybe) on a 150mm here..........

    Hi Hans,

    As I read the captioned part of your post, the only way Jim actually cost you $200-$300 is if you are the one who bought the 150 f/2 for $1620. If this is correct then let me be the...

    I agree it isn't the fastest focusing lens in the lineup, but the focus limiter switch makes it quite speedy. I complain about missing shots due to my speed. :)

    Wildlife Extending the 150 f/2 Range
