    In the beginning

    This one popped up on Facebook today.
  2. I like your video. Maybe a little too long, but better than most of the equipment review videos found on YouTube. Clever idea with the felt on the rear caps. You could maybe glue/tape a bit of velcro to one of the caps to stop them from sliding around. I recently bought the larger version called TurnStyle 20. I have only used it for one short trip yet, filled with my Nikon D810 and three lenses. It's my third sling type bag, the two others being a LowePro SlingShot and a Tenba 123-GO-20. My problem with them are that they have too much padding, making them stiff and ungainly. The TurnStyle with its thinner padding is easier both to carry and to get my stuff in and out of. For short hikes off-road I'll probably still use the Tenba, which can also be used with two straps like an ordinary backpack. For walking around in the streets I'll choose the TurnStyle. I have also thought about finding a way to secure those zippers, but I haven't decided what to do yet. I hope you will let us know if you find a good solution to that problem.

  5. I could have used some of that six months ago, when I was battling swine flu, pneumonia and a broken rib. All at the same time.

    New Spectacles

    My varifocal lenses have a hydrophobic coating on top of the anti-reflective coating. This makes them very easy to clean because nothing really sticks to them. I think they are made by Rodenstock. For cleaning I have been using ordinary liquid hand soap and dried them with a clean cotton towel. After almost three years there are no scratches on them.

    Mercury transit 2016

    I have owned several tele zoom lenses through the years, but this is the best one by far. Also the most expensive. The 36 megapixel files from the D810 gives ample room for cropping, and this is less than 10% of the entire image.

    Thanks for looking.

    Mercury and sunspots. Sigma 150-600 Sport with Baader AstroSolar filter.
  10. I like it, but I wish the objects on the right would tell us something more about the person. Now it looks like just a random collection of things.
  11. NOK 69k (VAT included) is about ZAR 129k so that's not far off. The real problem is the insane taxes on cars in Norway.
  12. Here in Norway the D5 is less than half the price of a VW Up base model. NOK 69k vs 147k. My D810 would cost 32K these days, and I'll keep mine for a few more years.

    Chimney Rock

    The new version is better.

    Chimney Rock

    A bit oversharpened? In full size it looks like the edges of the cliffs are traced with a pen. I like the tones and the composition.

    New Nikon Lenses

    The Sigma 150-600 Sport performs best at f/8, but at f/6.3 it is very close and about the same as f/11. MTF measurements on Lenstip.com: http://www.lenstip.com/417.4-Lens_review-Sigma_S_150-600_mm_f_5-6.3_DG_OS_HSM_Image_resolution.html
