Hi Phil, this time of year it is quite dry in the mountains and most places. I kept checking as the temperature dropped, but no condensation formed at all on my front element.

that is definitely light pollution, possibly from Modesto or Stockton.

I don't have much to share, as I only owned it for a short while, but during that time I found it to be a reasonable lens. Here is one sample:

we've got 15-35% relative humidity here for much of the year, so no special considerations are taken and no fungus ever.
I keep mine in pelican cases for the most part.

Left handers are ignored

lefty here (left hand/left eye) and I cannot imagine that a reverse layout would somehow feel more comfortable to me. at least in my case, the button positioning seems arbitrary to handedness. would like to hear from other lefties.

it would be fun to hold a prototype to see if were missing anything.

I'm not inclined to leave Flickr just yet, as the VAST MAJORITY of my licensed deals have found me on Flickr. the membership fee is thus quite insignificant.

if you don't capitalize it, people might think you mean to shoot in the nude.

You are describing extra steps, but yes of course, WB is adjustable in RAW.
I would rather get it right and have less post work in my workflow.

I never ever use AWB because I often want to shoot a pano or do exposure blending, and it will reinterpret WB for every frame which requires adjustment later. I would much rather lock in a manual setting and keep it consistent.

Additionally, if your image is featuring interesting light such as a sunrise or golden hour, AWB will do its very best to neutralize those tones, which is quite counter productive.

I am certain there are other fine uses for AWB, just none of any use to me.

This may not be of much help to you, but here is a link to a small local casino I shot once to give you an idea of the types of images I set up to support the casinos games and services.

https://www.mikeoria.com/p1027422461

I cannot permit you to use any of these, unfortunately, but perhaps they will help you create a concise shot list if you decide to visit a physical Casino to grab some content.

Good luck and as others have said, I hope you are being paid for this work.

fwiw, 67 M*300/4 is a gorgeous piece of glass. manual focus and heavy, but IQ is really great.
