I still like your 645Z images better than the newer ones.
Where is that poking tongue emoticon?

Why - unbearable sharpness of being 100Mp? Needing soft focus filters once more, as in days of old? Or just teasing in envy.

On a side note, I've noted there are quite a few Fuji GFX 50's for sale, for a price close to the K-3 III albeit new. Not the newer bodies obviously, with IBIS. I'm not seeing the 645Z for that price.

I mean it sincerely, so no poking tongue. I always really admired your Z work.

Not a thing wrong with 100mp, but itshimitis' Fuji images seem harsher to me than his Z images, and it has nothing to do with the resolution difference. That's not true for all users. Ed Hurst's images here look very similar, Z to Fuji.

Well, a quick google search showed me very similar prices. Can't speak to the quantities. As far as being similar in price to a K3mkIII, I'd say that in the apsc market the K3mkIII is a fine camera with great features.

Hauling a special train run in association with the Sydney Harbour Bridge's 90th anniversary year, NSW 38 class pacific no. 3801 powers onto the bridge from the south. The historic warehouses of Sydney blend with the 21st century city. Note the Anzac Bridge in the far distance and the Observatory dwarfed by Crown Casino.

This is shot from the bridge's southeast pylon - a structure that isn't usually open to the public at this time of day. I have a contact you was kindly able to get me up there early in the morning.

And now, here she is running north through Waverton station on the city's north shore...

Nice choo-choo train; looks like she was cleaned to the concours d'elegance standard. I like the sharpness over the entire scenes. Thanks.

Hello Theuns,

Try as you might, those big, heavy telephoto lenses (like the P67 400 mm f/4 ED) benefit from the use of a tripod or even a monopod. I know carrying a support device isn't always easy or even feasible. In the forest, a tripod or a monopod might save your life, like if you're attacked by a wild animal ... LOL ! When I visit Montreal (a 2 million people city), I always carry a heavy aluminum Manfrotto monopod when I travel in the underground Metro, this way, people look at me suspiciously and nobody approaches me by fear of being battered to a pulp. Your composition is marvelous BTW.

Regards
Hi,

I usually use a tripod with MF. But, I wouldn't rule out a monopod.

I have hauled a SF camera with a 500/4 on a monopod around road courses (auto racing) since the early 1980s. I do like the monopod for not only holding up the heavy rig, but I carry the setup on my shoulder like a lumberjack does an axe. And then another camera with a normal-ish (35/50/85mm) prime or a zoom lens by the strap on my other shoulder.

Hi,

What a nice loco and car set. I bet it didn't look that good when it was brand-new. Sort of like restored cars. Much better paint and attention to detail. And the old girl looks to be right at home today.


Of course, in addition to other engineering disciplines, I am also a licensed steam engineer. Not for locos, although I could easily learn any one of those, but for steam stationary and traction engines. Low pressure stuff. And, mostly Case brand as they are the most common. I have some shots of such, but SF not MF. I have yet to get into shooting the stuff at antique farm equipment shows with MF. I really ought to get into that habit. Maybe a good use for the monopod, actually.....

A few from my birth city of Bristol:

GFX100s GF 35 - 70



GF 100 - 200



Two pilot boats came through the water disturbing it for the rest of my time there... they left a nice trail, though
