Where have all the f/3.5-4.5 zooms gone?

Now that you've mentioned it...

I'm guessing they've been superseded by f/4 zooms, like Fuji's 16-80/4 and Nikon's 24-70/4.

Hurricane-influenced weather is forecast for Atlanta this weekend, where the Mets will face the Braves in a series that will largely determine who wins the NL East and nabs the 2nd seed. It will be interesting to see what MLB does if any of the games are unplayable, given the regular season ends 10/5 and the postseason begins 10/7.

The 2nd seed (NL East winner) receives a first round bye, so there is a lot at stake.

I'm sure you are right, but he has a 1.133 OPS versus lefties this year... just incredible. And those 21 HR's are in only 292 at-bats.

It's funny how things have worked out for the Cardinals: they let him go to the Angels exactly when they should have, and now they have him back exactly when they need him.

BoSox - Yanks called after 6 innings due to rain.

Judge was pitched tough all series, got some hits and walks but no HR's.

And at Wrigley. Only 300 miles away from St. Louis, and he has a career .993 OPS at the Friendly Confines. :)

He was just trying out a Pentax K-1 II after years of using MILC, not trying to "catch the latest... trend".

Just because he is not as enthusiastic about the Pentax as you would like him to be is not a reason to impugn his character.

Matti used to be a Panasonic Lumix Ambassador.

Not enough support in his country (Finland) from Panasonic, so now he gets to sample from the entire garden of digital cameras.

Judge hits #60, Yankees win on a walk-off salami by Stanton.


Also, it looks like Canada is lifting their Covid vax rules in time for postseason play in Toronto.

I agree that Pujols looks pretty good for a big 42 year old man. However, 6 years ago he was rather... portly:




He's dropped some weight recently, but we might be talking about his pursuit of 800 HR's if he had taken proper care of himself throughout his 30's. Not to mention his under-performance as an Angel.

An orthopedic surgeon once told be that for every pound of weight a person loses, they reduce pressure on their knees by 4-5 lbs.

BTW, I'm 6'1" and 192 lbs, and I should definitely drop 20.

Forumers @Pentaxians and @WPRESTO have done credible work with the Sony RX10 IV. The sensor is only slightly smaller than the m4/3 sensors, that massive zoom is pretty sharp considering the focal range, and the AF is reportedly excellent. I was sorely tempted to buy one but decided on m4/3 instead.

Rumor has it that the RX10 V will be introduced by the end of 2022, but given the worldwide supply-chain issues, who knows?

Most of Pujols' at-bats have come against lefties, and since he's not in the field anymore there's less wear-and-tear on his body. Recipe for resurgence.

My gripe with him is that after signing that humongous contract with the Angels, he didn't do a good job keeping himself in shape. Especially for a guy with leg and foot injuries, keeping some of that weight off would have helped tremendously.

853 snaps today with my Panny G9 + kit 12-60 + Raynox adapter. Lots of bursts of 4 or 5 shots after locking AF - mostly honeybees scrambling on flowers - and some chimping. The battery level is indicating 3 of 4 bars. I'm impressed with the battery life.

# 698 for Pujols.

Juan Soto is hitting .202 with 7 RBI in 35 games since his trade to the Padres.

RIP to the Bad Dude, former Mets catcher John Stearns, who passed away at age 71 from prostate cancer. Too young. :(

Stearns was probably the best position player on those dreadful mid-70's to early 80's Mets teams. Made the All-Star team 4 times, and could even steal bases.

Glad he was able to make it to the Mets Old Timers' Day last month.
