Oh well 50% older Lol. I'm only 66. I thought you were around the mid 30's mark from memory. My point being only about perspective and perception. :)

Haha! That would be really cool if you were really 88, though!

I was mostly joking about my age being a factor. In reality, spending the better part of the past 25yrs in southeast Texas is mostly to blame. I'll probably be re-acclimated in another year or so.

However, you're just nuts to live in the arctic! I could never live in that. Block heaters for the car, getting groceries once a month lol. No thanks!

Not in the Arctic Str0. No Block heater necessary here. Toyota Matrix and wife's Coralla start first instant. Parked out in the weather means 10-15 mins getting the snow off. Less than a mile to Maccas (For McCafe' only ) and town shopping 500 metres. We have Walmart, Home Depot, and all the Big Box stores a mere 30km in either direction.
Late last year we sold our Farm in Australia and my rels and neighbours are reporting recently having 5 consecutive days at +45C (113F). I don't like the temp getting much over 25C (77F). I don't mind rugging up for warmth, but stripping down for heat ... now there are limits! :D
We are on the same latitude as Brenda in fact.

No! You immediately made me want to go home and get into my covers. I remember what it felt like to feel -15 degree wind chill on my skin. NEVER AGAIN!

I'm originally from St Louis. But grew up from 6-15 in SoCal and then came back to STL for a few yrs before college. Left for college and stayed in TX for 20yrs and spent a few yrs in KY after that. Now, back in STL.

Such a complicated question! :)

Well, compared to here it is arctic up in the lakes area. I was thinking -35C was a bit warm for Canada haha. I was thinking you were up further north where some of my old friends are. Block heaters and cabin fever are what they describe :)

Okay so need some help here everyone.

The 24-70 I bought, I got for around $900. It turns out it is in fact a grey market lens, called Tamron and can't file for the warranty with the serial number. So now, I'm not sure if I should keep it or not. The company I bought from, Celltime Inc, is based in NY and does provide a 6 year warranty for the product. I just don't know if I should trust that warranty or not.

Should I just accept that 6 year warranty over the Tamron one, or should I return it to them and just buy for a few hundred more a lens that I can register with Tamron and play it safer.

Took some shots with the lens, so far so good. Looks nice and sharp. Just not sure what to do...

I'm using Kelvin all the time on my white balance settings in camera. So it's either i make the image cooler or warmer depending on the scene or the effect i'm trying to achieve.

Question: Will making your shots more on the warmer side introduce more noise than cooler? Is it better to just keep it in the middle or cooler and just warm it up in post when necessary? thank you.

I'd leave the WB in Auto and set the temperature in post.

The reason is that (at least with my software) the green channel varies independently and you an I have no clue on how to set it when in K. So let the camera set it, otherwise you may be way off.

There is no effect on noise as far as I know... You may mask noise with a redder photo for instance, but the choice of WB... I don't think so.

My 2 cents...

Drew, if they take it back, I'd send it back. These 'warranties' by local heros seem dubious to me...

But... that's me! So I buy from B&H and have my peace of mind.
