Haha... I'm still a newb with basic lenses. Thank you, though.

Anything less than a compliment would be a combination of rudeness, ignorance and jealousy!


So keep up the good work!

Greetings again J.
I really enjoyed browsing your pictures. Great shots. The Sigma 150 is an awesome lens. I checked out the sites and reviews on it. However at this time it's a little too dear for me. We're saving for a trip to Ireland this summer. Hoping to get some great shots with the 5300 while I'm over there. I am also a WW2 history buff as I was raised by that generation. I love the warplane models you have. I grew up listening to the guys who flew the American planes over there during that time. My personal favorite is the Jug (P47). Not as glamorous as the Spitfire or Mustang but the grunts loved their ground support capabilities. OS.

I'm going to keep this short, I don't want to hijack this thread.

1, . . .because it's (almost) about a camera that comes first, yes the sigma is a lot! It is well worth saving for, it is my benchmark standard. The no1 goto lens. I've only had it a year but I've got way more than its value in use so far.

2, model kits/WWII, cheers, you will hear more from me in PM. Mostly about planes, big fan of military aviation USAF and RAF centred on WWII.

3, thank you OS, sorry (a bit) @brian.

4, enjoy Ireland, I haven't been there (1980 Northern Ireland Ira) but the countryside in the south sure looks nice! Soon I will start travelling the earth!

If you guys don't mind, however, please post pictures and discuss anything related to cameras in this thread I started. It's specifically for DSLR and MILC.

Post your DSLR or Mirrorless ILC pics here!

It's pretty stagnant and all I see in terms of high quality pics are coming from SW folks on SW topic specific threads (even so I invited SW peeps to post, too).

Back on topic,

Will do. Sorry Brian for getting way off topic. Here's a couple I still had on my hard drive from the D5100.
The landscape was taken looking out from deep shade outward to the brighter open and water. I had to go aperture preferred two F-stops two keep the side details bright enough. Hand held 35mm setting.
The cat pic was soft focused inward. OS.

Phew!

Nobody got hurt!

What a civilised world we live in.

Os that pic at the top looks like a nice place to be with a camera, and everybody loves animal pictures, that's not a bad thing either. Basically two ticks from me.

About camera settings, I started off briefly with the a/s settings but the camera did it's thing and wasn't thinking like me. I quickly got into manual mode, it's quite simple, the camera has little blinker lights in it to tell you when your over or under, it's almost second nature to me now. I say this because I'd consider myself only really AAA, above average amateur. I've only been shooting for 16 months. Also the stop and ISO among other things are available in the view finder. You need to have apache pilot eyeballs but you get used to it! What else, the most important discovery about cameras was hyperfocal theory. That taught me the most about my kit (and every other camera type thing). It applies everywhere a lens is concerned.
