    Helpful writeup, thanks Dan. I recognize much of the discussion's long done but it's probably still worth mentioning my copy of the Fuji 100-400 is decidedly worse than the sample here. MTF on the Fuji 100-400 is down quite a bit with their 1.4x teleconverter (which I also own) too;…

    Once again, you have provided invaluable and erudite commentary on the current state of the art in photography. The combination of your expertise in "real world" nature shooting situations combined with your honest evaluations of equipment make you a "one of a kind" authority.

  • First Annual Natural Exposures Mylio Workflow Research Event

    One of the best ways to build sincere, productive relationships is to meet face to face, share a beer, maybe a Coke, possibly a glass of wine—anything’s an option when there are no margaritas in town. Call me old school, but great relationships are founded on more than tweets, hashtags, and…
