3D drawing of FA 24-90 lens hood

Thanks D1N0, Snappertim and leekil.

I have the PH-RBM and tried on the FA 24-90 . It doesn't show any vignetting, however it is not the one designed for the lens, which I would higlhy prefer.

rrstuff: I didn't find anything below $50 for the PH-RBE67. 3D printing service I found would be much less than that and I would have a sun-hood designed for lens. Hence my original question.

I would like to know if someone would be able to provide me a 3D drawing of the hood for the lens SMC PENTAX-FA 24-90 mm IF AL f3.5-4.5

I lost mine and am having a hard time to find one at a reasonnable price, so I though I would have done by some 3D printing services.

Additionnally, if someone has some good feedback for such service in Europe I would be happy to hear...

I can only agree on this :)

Yes, that is what I am trying to express.
And thanks for the suggestion of past tense. Yet, I think I will go with the present one, with the past tense it gives the impression that it is already settle and that not much can be done.

So I will use this: "Life will never be what you hope for, only what you make for it."

Again thank you all for the inputs!

Well I don't know if it makes sence in English, but Parallax you nailed it. The meaning is really to say that hope was part of the past, whereas "make" is still doable and changeable...

I understand that mixing tenses is not the best but does it makes sence? I mean, does it leads to the meaning I want it to have?

Thands TinaS, Parallax and PJ1.

PJ1: I like this alternative, although I would like to keep it as one sentence. And yes, the idea is to reflect that hope is part of the past...

Parallax: I didn't consider the first phrase in present tence, yet it sounds really good Thanks for that.. But odes it make sence to keep the second part in past?
"Life will never be what you hope for, only what you are making of it" ?
Keeping the "making of it" tence to show that it is not definitve?

Is there some native english speaker who could help me on the following phrase:

"Life will never be what you hoped for, but only what you are making from it. "

For the context, I would like to use this phrase in my thesis, but I do not like the verb "making" in the second part of it. Also the "but only" bothers me a bit.. (but I am no native speaker, just fluent and still learning)
Does it sounds right for you?

If it can help, the closest translation into french would be : "la vie ne sera jamais telle que tu as pu l'espérer, mais seulement telle que tu la façonne".
I coudn't find a satisfying translation for façonner :(

Thanks for the inputs...

How do you carry your gear on hikes?

As many of us I tried several solutions without being completly satisfied.

Now I use a backpack that is as close to the body as possible (to carry more weight without destrying my shoulders) with pockets on the hips.
I choose the Osprey Kode because it fits both of these constraints. In each hip pockets I can fit 2 limited lenses, usually I have 15 and 43 on one side and 100 on the other. My 300 is usually in the bag and I take it out only when I expect something.
I took up to 14kg including sleeping gear and food and I didn't feel any pain from the bag on a 20km walk in the moutains (Alpen).

Then to attach the camera I have a Peak Design Capture, which is great and comfortable to use.

Also if you find a backpack fitting to your body, the hips pockets can be replaced by some lens case, Lowepro is doing some great one.

Concerning the camera bags, so far (and I tried a few) I didn't find anything comfortable to wear with a bit of weight inside. Most of the time the access is prefered over the portability...

Thanks for the input. I did try but it doesn't look the best neither... As the trees in the background are not straight anymore.

Only way I found for now is to print it as it is, cut the black borders and frame it to display in the stairs :)

I like the first one the most.
Warmer colors for the sky compared to the 2nd and 3rd.

But the car flow of the second is more important, making it more visible in the frame, and the starburts are more important on this one too... I guess lower aperture?

The third one seems almost like an HDR to me... And I am not to keen of it.

So to me the second would be best if you could get the colors of the first one, else the first goes great.

Anyhow thats three nice shots :)

I got the chance to catch an European Sparrowhawk taking off, not long ago.

Yet, as I followed the bird in flight the framing is changing, which forced me to put the black lines to cover the empty space and the result is not appealing as I was expecting.

Would you have any recommendations on how to make this look better (maybe the color of the borders? Different framing?)

My Sigma Art 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM "Art" review

Thanks a lot for that great review !
I find it really complementary to the PF review...

Could you please expand about a bit more about the difference in size between the EX and the ART?
Is it really obvious difference or only noticeable?

I would be interested to change my EX version for the ART to have the HSM and lower MFD, which I found to be too high on the EX version.

Thank you all for the inputs !

I never had the opportunity to use a Gimbal before so I uave no idea of its comfort. I will try to find someone around to do some testing before investing.
Thank you Lauren for the details on Gimbals. Really instrutive !

Macario and bassek: I had a look at the supported weigth of my current setup (ball head) and I can go up to 8kg but even if many settings are possible it's not the best with the 300...

Crewl1 I am also planing on carrying most of the time the lens in my backpack due to uneasy walking environments (mountains or forests). I am surprised that you use a phot bag to carry such a weight. Untill now I couldn't find any photo bag comfortable with more than 5kg inside !
By the way great idea for the tripod padding !

littledrawe thanks for the details ! The lens was quite a money to invest and I would like not to buy three head to find the good one... Your answer definetly gives insight into what I should look for.

Is anyone actually carring sometimes the lens from the collar ? Did you add a plate or change the collar for a better grip ?
