Seriously.. Must be cheaper that way. Although, I'd pay an extra $10 to have a 100% tested lens.

That's a shame, because traveling to places you've never been, or places you go to all the time for a new perspective are great experiences, and play a big role in how I view photographic enjoyment.

I'm going to answer for him, hopefully it's right.

Striving for the result will bring him to all those places. I think that bending and contorting into different potions and changing tons settings on the fly is the part that he dislikes.

+1. i actually hiked a mountain last week, camped overnight in the freezing rain, woke up at 4:30am to set up the gear, all for a landscape shot.

by experience i don't mean traveling to different places. what i mean is using M when i can get the same exact result faster in some other mode (aka doing it manually). when i'm capturing a photo, the last thing i want to be thinking about is my camera.

It takes no more effort to roll the dial in P than it does in A or S. Which is why I use A and S 99 percent of the time. It ensures that the camera doesn't leave it too wide open, or that shutter is too slow.

The reason I do it this way is because you usually know ahead of time, "Hey, my shutter speed needs to above this." or, "My background is noisy, I need to shoot wide open."

It's really no more distracting than having to check that the settings P has picked are going to work out (either by looking at the numbers beforehand or 'chimping' the result.)

I realized how cheap the 120-300 is and how much the 135L is in relation to it and I'm going to sell the l for the Sigma.
post #12359 of 29551
If you decide to sell the 135L, pm me before you release it to the masses.

Don't do it. He's going to want to meet up in a dark alley, where he'll just jump you and take your lens
