Thanks for your time! Paul Paul, this has been a common question of late. I have been trying to get my hands on both the f1.4 and f1.8 for a side by side but have only got my hands on the f1.8. There is no...

Fun with the Fish

When you have six photographers on a chilly morning with their feet in the cold Pacific, limiting them to just one lens and a specific lens at that, and they are all giddy, you know you’ve got something special. There’s a location I know about in Oregon that was made for just one lens.

Hi Moose I’ve really enjoyed the Bt Journals and the fact that you share your experience and no nonsense approach to photography with us. Thanks! Knowing that you’re a big fan of the IoSafe Rugged Portable 1TB Drives, I thought you might know where I might purchase a couple. B&H list them as discontinued, Amazon and the others I’ve checked list them as out of stock. Hope they’re still going to be available. Thanks again, Mark Mark, I hate to say, but I’m not...
