Still a baby! probably not even a teenager yet! No ridges on his shell like when they get older. I have had them annoyed at me with a 300mm lens. At least annoyed enough to turn around and go back in the lake they had just come from.

Mis-read due to lack of coffee! Mea Culpa! My DA*300 has been perfect also but I haven't used it in quite a while, especially since I got my 150 450.

I can't argue the overall point but the new 55-300 PLM is nothing like the SDM lenses you seem to be grouping it with. I have heard of some focus issues on a few copies, but nothing about motor failure. My DA* 55 and DA* 50-135 have been reliable from when I bought them used here in the forums, while the 16-50s sample images never did anything that made me want to buy it. As the 16-50 seems to be the worst of the lot, I don't fell the need to be worried about failure since the 555 could be a manual lens, and the 50-135 can be converted and work well.

A bit morbid, especially as if you have no other comorbidity factors in your current health, you should be OK even if you develop it. Living where it is cold also has made my general health when related to flus and colds, much better than when I lived in San Diego. So you should be bulletproof! :p

A lot of folks whos opinions I trust have said that the Sigma 18-35 can be very problematic for adjusting the back and front focusing issues at different FLs. Just looking at screen shots of the software in action, at the price they are charging for it, I would buy a couple of Pentax primes instead.

If part of any page has images, the Kindle comments apply for not being easy to look at. You have closer to an actual page aspect when reading if you go with a larger tablet than a Kindle.I find my full sized Ipad to be miles better reading any books with illustrations or images in comparison.

The Calibre e book management system is pretty handy and free for most, but the caliber companion on Kindle costs some of those ridiculous Amazon coins. (Usually less than they give you for buying a Kindle HD. But dual page layouts on a kindle HD suck and a paperwhite would be worse. Any tablet with a good screen and connectivity would be the way tp go. Bigger as in 10 inch at least is best.

@crazy4oldcars said it best on magazines and photo spreads with a Kindle. Please take our advice and only buy once!

I have a new paperwhite but use the Kindle App on my full size Ipad more to read than the paperwhite. Also Photography books are usually going to be image heavy and the Paperwhite and even the Kindle HDs of 8 inches and smaller handle expanding images fairly poorly in my opinion . For the record, I have had a Kindle HDX (which was the best!) as well as three HD 8 inch Kindles. OK to use, battery life after a year and a half went in the tank. The Paperwhite is not the one for images and the fact it does not rotate to allow the power switch to be on top annoys the heck out of me as I have large hands and turn it off accidentally often when using one hand. If you can find an Ipad from the last model year, go for it as I am a convert when it comes to tablets.

I am with you Norm! I tried Sling for watching Hockey last year but I could not get enough bandwidth to make it worth the cost. Over the air and streaming services only, with a reduction in those soon I think.
