    Congratulations, Sean!

    Memories of the sleeplessness and frustration fade, but memories of the joy persist...thus, the revisiting...and perhaps re-revisiting. :D

    Wonderful images as always! This week's nod goes to Foggy Moonlight, I like the dark brooding feel that enhances the moon and its reflection, and the stars peeking through.

    I put my TQC-14 into checked luggage when I'm checking a suitcase. But several times I've packed it in a carryon hard case, and last month for the first time I carried it just strapped to the...

    Vivitar...not the first name that comes to mind when I think of quality filters. Nor the second. Actually, it doesn't even make the list. I'd say it's the filter.

    We've typically gotten together for winter raptors, where patience is key and that means the supertele is on a tripod. But on many occasions, I walk around carrying the 600/4 II (usually with the...

    No specific plans, but a general goal to get out for more birding this year. Will certainly have a few business trips, one likely to Argentina.

    Eneloops, the standard white ones. I still have all Sanyo ones, from before Panasonic took over the brand. I probably have >40 of them, all are still working flawlessly.

    Nice in theory, difficult in practice for a couple of reasons. First, there are a myriad of accessories out there, which should be reviewed? I suspect Bryan reviews off-brand items that he finds...

    No master plan for me. Started with a T1i back in 2009 (after a long P&S-only hiatus from film SLRs), soon moved to a 7D, then added a 5DII. Replaced both with a 1D X, and that's still meeting my...

    As always, it's tough to choose among all of the excellent images. For this week, I think top honors go to Denise for her Garden Visitor.

    Looking forward to next week, happy shooting!

    I also had the 7D + 5DII combo, and it was a great setup - 7D for birds/wildlife, and the 5DII for everything else. Convenient, since they use the same battery, both are CF cards, etc.

    +1

    I don't find the 1D X II sufficiently tempting for me to upgrade. The lower lines cycle faster, and I do think it's time for me to pick up an M6 to replace my M2.
