Thanks David Appreciate your feedback. was just trying something different with a different perspective on it.

Love your paintball shots by the way especially the first shot you posted in that series. That new lens is killer.

It would have been awfully easy to push the saturation too far in a shot like this. By showing a bit of restraint you've ended up with an impressive scene.

You should shoot more landscape, I enjoy watching them.

I also like the first shot :cool:

Thank you! I was very tempted to raise saturation but as you said I had to restrain myself. :)

Merci beaucoup encore David :) I hope that's spelled right lol Haven't written French in many years.

LOL... hey, it's only money. But! since I am the one who mentioned it, I just tried lighter fluid on my screen and it doesn't appear to have harmed it a bit. Does anyone know if the screen is glass or not? If it's glass then most solvents will not hurt it as long as you don't rub too hard and put abrasion marks in it. If it's lexan or some other type of plastic, then I would definitely be careful putting solvents on it.

I ended up just pulling it off the LCD screen slowly with no problems at all. The LCD screen stayed nice and clean.

Broda i need advise...

Been looking at the Canon EF-S 60mm F2.8 Macro thread and got blown away. Not only with the sharpness but also to it's many uses, macro photography, product photography and even portraits.

I wanna sell my Sigma 30mm F1.4 for it. What do you think?

Never used my Sigma 30 for a long time already and i'm happy with the 2.8 aperture even inside a church. Been happy with my Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 too even in paid jobs. I'm keeping my tammy.

These macro lenses are astounding! I use a Sigma 105 f2.8 in the B&H photo shoot and I just could not believe the sharpness, even in the viewfinder.

I carefully avoided any forays to B&H, so I will not get tempted...

Vinz,

I think the nifty fifty is the perfect portrait lens (effective FL 80 mm). For studio anyway... And it's cheap... it's even fuzzy at f1.8 (I don't think a portrait where every pore and wrinkle shows is very flattering... and my wife agrees, rather insists... on a little softness).

The 30 is a normal lens (effective length 48 mm). I have to confess, that if you look through my entire database of over 10000 photos, you will find only a hanfull shot at normal lens range...

But that's me, and my tastes.

If you want to play with macro, you can get the EF-S 60. I see you have extension tubes and the Sigma 17-50. Doesn't this cover your macro needs?

I think i'll stick with it right now. I went to the Sigma 30mm thread to combat my itchiness.

Also I can even use my extension tubes more effective on my tammy and Sigma 30. I'm having a hard time using the tubes on my 17-50.

thanks.

do you think it's worth give up my 30mm siggy?

i think the 60mm has more uses.

60mm + extension tubes would be awesome combo for macro + i have a good portrait lens? what do you think?
