Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I feel much the same. The political class as a whole has badly let us all down.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Political moods Dave - after 18 years of Conservative government the country was ready for a change. And Tony Blair, like him or hate him, was a very effective politician.

Re: Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN

Seems I'm wrong :(

https://www.sigmaphoto.com/56mm-f1-4-dc-dn-c

If the IQ is good, then it could be a winner. Smaller than the 45/1.2 and almost certainly a lot cheaper.

Re: Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN

It'll be huge since it's really an aps-c lens.

Personally, I find the 45/1.8 excellent and all I really need for portraits. If I wanted something better I'd go for the 45/1.2 which by all...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I think we're close to agreeing on something Dave!! :)

However, I'm not sure it's lack of belief in the UK that's at the core of our problems - it's lack of political leadership. And I'm not just...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Quite. And that's the whole reason why Brexit is a dumb idea economically. European car manufacturing has become tightly integrated with suppliers working across many countries. The UK can't just...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

You don't understand Dave. JIT manufacturing saves an enormous amount in terms of wasted production and it reduces inefficiencies in the manufacturing process. It also makes companies more able to...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

I think if we are to cut CO2 emissions to the levels we need then aviation will need to play a part. The only lever we have to control anything really is economics. The cost of flying needs to go...

Re: Using the P mode?

I don't use P mode, but I can see its a personal thing. The key thing about exposure is that photographers generally fall into two camps:

- A, P or S mode plus exposure compensation
- M mode...

Re: Envy of the world ?

It's mostly about cash. Given how much we spend per head of capita, we get way more than we deserve.

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

So you don't believe it's making such a big difference. But people who have studied it MUCH more than you believe it IS making a big difference. They believe it because of the weight of evidence....

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Actually I was sceptical about anthropogenic global warming (AGW) at first but I spent a lot of time looking at the evidence and the research and bit by bit my view changed. The conclusion isn't one...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Along with climate change, it seems that deniers want to believe all sorts of nonsense. Pick from any of:

- NASA never went to the Moon
- The earth is flat
- 9/11 was a conspiracy by the US...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

For goodness sake - the evidence is overwhelming. It's as proven as the fact that smoking causes lung cancer or that obesity causes diebetes.

Please watch this video carefully and listen to the...

Re: Just bought the 75-300

Very nice. Having recently sold my 300/4 for lack of use and feeling pretty much the same over the 40-150/2.8 which I still have, I think I may sell that too and pick up a 75-300 for the few times I...

Re: More from Photokina

That 4mm FE looks very interesting. No interest in their 12mm & 17mm offerings though. I'd miss AF and EXIF data too much, no matter how good the IQ.

That Panasonic 10-25 looks E N O R M O U S.

Re: "OLYMPUS Investor Day 2018" (2018/9/5)

Crikey - so we're really turning into a little England then. This is madness.
