Daniel is right. 

According to my experience,

you need to bump the shutter speed without the fear of ISO, while working with extreme teles.

If the daylight is good then you are lucky, if not accept what you had gotten.

Another important thing is to be as close as possible to subject, I mean very close.

Tele doesnt mean to get excellent shoots from faraway distances.

You can only get snapshoots of far subjects, dont expect to get more, if you dont have 20k$ lens :).

Even if you have that spectacular lens, atmospheric conditions always in the game; heat, dust, wind, humidity etc.

And I am also in big trouble with hand held big lens.

But professional tele shooters find 1-2kg weight for the lens fair enough.

These are my a few cents.

I am always interested in strobist stuff.

#28110 Ambient light control question

you may need measure the backlight and lock, and then high speed synchronization mode of the flash for the subject, If I didnt misunderstand.

#27798 Sigma 24-105 vs Nikon 24-120

Posted by akanarya on 15 October 2014 - 02:40 PM

Hey friends, I am new to nikon world. My question is;


What are the choices for all around zooms for full frame?


I want more reach than 70mm,

I do not want weird zooms, like 28-300mm.

So, I narrowed the band to;


nikon 24-85,

nikon 24-120

sigma 24-105


am I missing another one?


I read the reviews, prices,dimensions, weight, filter size etc.

My brain goes for 24-120, because of weight(I dont like heavy ones) and more reach and a bit more magnification.

But my heart says to go for 24-105, I have a feeling that it has a better IQ.


What are your oppinions?

K-3 is very promising apsc body. I dont think you can get any regret.

Sigma 100-300 is a nice lens, but if you can find I recommend DA* 300mm.

I didnt use it but I always love the images produced by 300mm.

Lighter and a little macro capability.


I used DA-L version of 55-300. Same optically with HD version.

The new HD coating doesnt bring so much we believe.

55-300 is a very nice, lightweight zoom lens with a very fairy price.

It is much more better than the other available consumer zoomes.

But dont expect too much.

Because it is not heavy, it may be difficult to obtain steady shots using handheld.

Here there is a review;

I shoot for the moon at quarter states to obtain far better contrast.

And the stacking makes somehow better tuning.

MOON SHOT with Nikon D800E and Tamron 150-600mm


600mm  f/6.3  1/1000sec  ISO 250


Feel free to ask me any questions. 

is it handheld? if not why didnt you prefer to lower the iso?

did you make any pp?

#27493 Why you need to shoot RAW and post process

Posted by akanarya on 03 October 2014 - 04:59 AM

Why not?

Almost all photos need to be edited up to a certain level, at least cropping.

And it is very disturbing to answer a question that asks the ways to rescue the photo, if it hadnt been taken as raw.

Therefore, I shoot as raw and storage cost is not a big deal.

#27097 Hi

Hi there,


I am from Turkey.

I have using pentax equipment for almost 5 years.

My very next aim is to change my system with d750.

I hope it is a good decision.

So lets start it with the forum :)

Have good shoots
