They're nice to look at but what in hell would I do with them? I never use anything other than the 18 to 200mm on my Nikon and the 28 to 135mm on my Canon. As a rank amateur I can't even imagine a use for these lenses. (:
I plan to write an article for my Camera Club, the title will be "Is photography your hobby or do you just happen to own a camera?" I want to hear your thoughts on this matter. You may be quoted without credit or I may use your UHH name; and I may shamelessly use some of your words in my opinion parts. I am looking for ideas, thoughts, and anything you feel is relevant to the topic. Thanking you all in advance.
It is two hobbies for me. I enjoy buying, selling and owning all type of cameras and related equipment. I just hung 4 framed photos at a library last night, (my club is having a show in the month of July) I just got back from a 14 day river cruise and I am enjoying going through and pairing down the 4200 photos I took.
Leaving for a Viking Rhine River Cruise from Amsterdam to Basel next week. Was just wondering, given the Viking itinerary, do any Hogs who have made the same trip have any tips of what you liked best or what I should be on the lookout for? Since "Chance favors the prepared mind," your tips/advice would be much appreciated.
Just got back Tuesday Budapest to Amsterdam. Viking is soooooo fantastic! You must get to Amsterdam 2 days early and enjoy. Best hotel there is Double Tree by Hilton at Central Station. Has a outside rooftop bar with food, great for night photos of the city and the waterways in the back. 2 min. walk to the canal boat rides and so much more, everything you could want is right there. Write me PM for more info.
I bought a RX 100 m1 a few years ago and love it. Now I’m thinking of upgrading to the m3. The 3 provides an articulated rear screen and a built in nd filter, which are nice but not enough for me to spend the additional money. The one upgrade that may make a difference is the lens on the 3 zooms out to 24mm equivalent vs 28 mm on the 1. I shoot mainly landscape. Is the extra field of view worth it? Money is an issue. Any advise on buying good used if I decide to upgrade?
