Why buy lenses from let’s say Tamron or Sigma, as opposed to OEM lenses from the camera manufacturer? Wouldn’t Nikon lenses for Nikon cameras or Canon lenses for Canon cameras, etc. be better in general than third party lenses?

If cost is the main issue, wouldn’t a used OEM lens in excellent condition be better in general than a new third party lens? I guess used third party lenses still beat out used OEM lenses cost wise.

I understand that Tamron and Sigma lenses are popular. Just curious as to why?

Why not?
If the 3rd party lens does what the user needs, why not?

Very good. Is that a UP Challenger? I bet it got loud under that viaduct!

Yes that is the Challenger. Unfortunately it is now retired. If the UP would get it running again before the 4014 runs out of time, they would make for one hell of a double header shoe.

Even though this was shot with a bridge camera it still had some post processing done to it.

Turtle Back is mainly a kids zoo in metropolitan NJ. I took a short visit to it yesterday. Huge crowd, lots of kids & carriages, hot & humid. Difficult shooting through dirty glass, cages, bars, ... We went anyway.

Here are a few images. Not great, but considering vantage points, lighting and my extreme amateurism, not too bad.

Thanks for viewing.

Mark, thank you for awakening old but fond, memories. A long, long time ago in the early 50's there was a riding stable (Smitty's) at the corner of Northfield Ave and Pleasant Valley way that I used to frequent during the summer. The riding trails went along Northfield to the tree line towards Turtle Back and then curved into the woods. I hadn't thought about that for ages and your post caused me to take a Google Street View Tour. My Lord!! I expected growth but mercy!!

Amazes me with all the answers. Some may be correct but the truth is no one knows what the skunk will do. Good luck.


I guess the truth is that n one knows what any person or animal will at any given time.
But we can know the usual tendencies, can't we?

Actually, when I tried it before posting the suggestion, a long page of Sedona threads came up immediately. Reason I suggested searching UHH is that he'd probably find the input he had gotten previously.


That's a good thing. The reason I suggested using Google to search UHH though was that too many times when using the UHH engine I got a dry hole. I've had better results since I started going that way.

If you search using Sedona there is a lot of info.


If you plug this into Google you'll get the best result. The UHH search engine is "wanting"

[quote=sxrich]Also, don't ever think you can predict the behavior of a wild animal. You can't. You could get lucky a hundred times in a row and the very next time something happens. Go for it though! I'll tell you what though, smelling skunk spray up close is beyond anything you will ever smell.

That sounds like you're describing the human animal.

Whatever I buy, be it a camera, a car, a TV, whatever, they are purchased to be used. Their value to me and probably anyone reading this, is not monetary, their value is in their utility.

For what it's worth; When I lived in Arizona, come sundown I would go out on my deck with a cigar and a night cap. Most evenings a skunk would come by and I would just sit there and watch it watch me. After a few of these encounters I starting saying hell-o and talking to it. the skunk would look at me and just keep going about its business. Now that I'm living in PA it's common to go through the same scenario with the deer and foxes.
The wild animals around us are far more aware of us than we are of them. As long as you don't do something to startle them you should be fine. As far as the camera tripping, the critters might take off the first time or two but, once they know it isn't a danger to them they will normally accept it as a new part of their life. As RMorrison said the spray is a skunks last resort. I once watched an animal control officer capture a skunk in an office complex by walking up to it easily with a cardboard box. He placed the box on the ground next to it with the opening facing the skunk. The skunk just went into the box, they are nocturnal and prefer the dark, the officer closed it and took box and skunk away. No fuss, no muss, no stink

We will be traveling to FL from MN in March. I am hoping to spend time in Tennessee. Where do I go? Do you have a favorite spot that is fun to photograph? I have been to the airport, which is the sum total of my experiences in Tennessee. Thanks.


Tenn. like many other eastern states in March can be a bit dreary, gray and wet. Please be prepared for that otherwise you'll come away with a bad image of what is a very pretty state. You might want to consider the town of Pigeon Forge. Just driving through should put a smile on your face. It is a Tenn. gateway to The Great Smokey Mountains and also the location of "Dollywood".
