There were almost 2k posts in the thread before it was changed. It was changed because Canon fanboys complained.

And? That doesn't make it any more relevant to the EF lens section. If anything you'd be a Sony fanboy to be upset by then wanting to re-lable it...

This is definitely a better place for this thread, and I'll be happy to post my own pictures in it soon ;)

Dude, really? You select some weird nits to pick. I was merely pointing out that the title reverted back after being needlessly changed in the first place.

+1. Strange nits indeed. :lol:

? I didn't mean any harm by my comment, I just call it how I see it. It made no sense to have a Sony a7 thread in a lens sub-forum... especially an EF lens sub-forum.

A better solution than changing the name of the thread in the first place would have been to simply move it to the general photography section since that's where all the other non-Canon camera discussion used to be.

holy hell, a sigma 120-300 on travel? Trying to understand why you would be carrying something like that around.

In this case, for a few planned ultra-long landscape shots (since I didn't expect to encounter wildlife on this trip), as well as for telephoto cityscapes (since the 70-200L has 8 aperture blades, which makes for poor sunstars from city lights).

Anybody in here have suggestions for how to get the best out of the high ISO images from this sensor? The detail and noise levels aren't too bad at high ISO, but I seem to be finding that the colors go bad fast (like ISO3200+).

I know you're not looking for critique but I thought I'd share my initial reaction with you. I really like the composition but because the foreground is almost entirely green and brown, it tends to look like a colorized black and white image to my eyes.

It's probably because it's entirely green vegetation and red brick/stone ruins.

Here it is processed in a different manner, to match the others in the set (which didn't require such processing - since they were taken a few minutes later, the sun had washed out the green from the vegetation by then).

Even though it's darker, I much prefer the second edit as I think it looks more natural like that. It is a great shot.

Well I'm glad you took it cos that shot is superb!

I should probably mention that I shot it using an enhancing filter to bring out the greens.

Here's an in-between version:
