am new to Arca Swiss heads. I bought a SIRUI monopod head and am using that qr plate which is 2.33 inches long

http://www.amazon.com …s-including/dp/B006JZ7QZ​C (external link)

the plate is a hair shorter than the tripod collar foot of the tammy;

I also bought an Acratech GV 2 ball head with no plate.

So, should the plate be a bit longer than the foot??

tx

btw, am liking the acratech. very smooth, have not used the gimball feature

Not happy w/the SIRUI. I bought it because I wanted something more robust than my Manfrotto swivel head, and wanted the fluid tilt back. However, the tension knob freezes..literally in cold temperatures and won't move.

Your plate should be longer than your foot. It will help balance your camera and lens on your head. On my 100-400 I use a 4.5 inch Jobu Design dual dovetail Acra Swiss plate, which also gives me room for the flash mount. It's about $50. I also have a 5.5 inch plate (made in china) which works just as well for a lot less money. See this: http://www.ebay.com …ain_0&hash=item​2ec74b83fa (external link)

I also have the Sirui head on my monopod. I like it, but never experienced the problem you encountered in the cold weather. I don't think I have used it in anything below 30 degrees F. Thanks for the tip.

When the weather clears, I will take the Tamron out for its trial run :lol:.

tx. yes, the weather has really put a damper on using the new lens in the Eastern U.S., among other places. I think that's why some of us are spending more time on the forum than out shooting and editing.

I hope you find some great horned owls as well! Love owl shots since they really are pretty rare (except for Snowy's around this area this year).

Thanks. Quivira NWR (central Kansas) has a lot of GHOs. The employees there sometimes compete to see who can spot the greatest number around sundown. But they aren't trying to get close for good photos.

I have had some luck with Barred Owls at one of the local birding spots, but they are pretty well camouflaged.

Has anybody received a Tamron 150-600 lately?
I thought I pre-ordered early enough, missed the first round via Adorama, rented one from Lensrental for a trip and now patiently waiting. Next big trip is now that far off though.

I spoke to Tamron, they are trying to fill in the back orders as fast as they can. They said they aren't getting many at a time tho. I'm waiting still too. I ordered mine 5 weeks or so ago thru adorama, and Helen was very nice and told me they are still waiting to get a big shipment in. So far just a few are trickling in.

Did anybody try to take night landscape/cityscape which includes street lights. Since it has 9 blade aperture shouldn't it produce 18 streak star effect at f/16 or more? I am just curious.

Thanks HogansHeroes.
Time to pre-order from B/H then cancel whoever is the slowest.

pretty sure that's the case. I have also thought about grabbing this lens for that purpose, but it's overkill. With the focal length, it'll be really hard to get everything in focus, even with stopping down. Currently making due with the 70-300 for that purpose.

Good stuff Marc!

Still twiddling my thumbs waiting on a back order from Adorama. The more reviews I read, the more stoked I get.

Nice Mark. In your blog you mentioned being curious about it on the 7 or 70D. If you take a look through the other Tamron thread running on here (the one that says Images at the end), all of the shots I've been posting in there have been taken with it on the 7D, and many of them at ISO 800 and above.
