I picked up one of these earlier this year and I like it a lot LensCoat LensHide Photo Blind (Realtree Max-4) LCLHM4 B&H Photo

Haven't tried it in the snow yet. Not sure how well it would work - the snow version is probably better for that.

BTW I am also in Wisconsin - what preserve are you near?

Thx. IMHO both Tamron and 20-40 are excellent lenses. I wasn't looking to replace the Tammy but found a good used mint copy of the 20-40 and it seemed like a great addition to my da15 & da70. I also ended up with a 16-85 but it didn't move the 20-40 off of the camera either - just something about the 20-40 to my eyes (and I love the build), and since i need to slim down my kit somethings gotta give.

On my K3 i set AF adjust at +2. It is consistent thru the range. Screw drive was fast enough for my use. I was looking for at least center sharp @2.8 and this one delivered. Here are a few snaps that show what this guy can do in my very amateur hands...

DFA 150-450 lens creep
Posted By gumbee
Replies: 12

Just picked up the DFA150-450. I've not had opportunity to shoot much yet, but noticed that the lens starts creeping as soon as I look at it (ok a wee bit of exaggeration;)). wondering what is "normal" for this lens. I found a few comments extolling the fact that it doesn't creep (the in depth review on this site and others), but also a few mentioning the creeping.

I want to exchange mine for a non-creeper, but don't want the hassle if the non-creeper is the exception rather than the rule. (will use rubber band in that case).
Will be using mostly on a tripod and this copy starts moving quickly if not horizontal.

Does anyone know if the majority of the copies are creepers or not?

thx,
John

Question about DA16-85 view jumping when AF
Posted By gumbee
Replies: 25
Views: 2,354
Just received this lens yesterday and mine jumps noticeable too. Both in PDAF/OVF and live view. Using autofocus I only notice it using OVF, but manual focus I can re-create it using either. for manual focus it jumps as I move focus ring about 1/4inch either way - mine is easy to make "jump" this way. No matter where I begin focusing I can make mine "jump".

This is my second copy - the first copy was way off focusing between short and long end - could not adjust for anything useable for me. Have not tested for decentering or focusing yet - not sure if I want to live with the jumping.

I tried my other lenses and cannot re-create. I've never experienced this before. Should I be concerned?

You might want to consider the 2 year extended warranty for $20. ( I know B&H carries it). I believe you have to purchase within 30 days of the new camera purchase. It also includes one free cleaning/inspection.
