    Nice, Stephen! What equipment did you use? Do you mind sharing details such as number of exposures/exposure times?

    Kind of annoying that you can get this kind of result when still "new to this...

    An f40 is a slow lens but a fast car :)

    That lens is really expensive. The 1200mm f/5.6 has a 214mm aperture. TEC makes telescopes with similar sized fluorite glass, with supposedly very high...

    Haven't posted in a while, but I have to say I love that shot by Pat. That's what I wish all of my ocean shots would look like, but they never do :)

    That moon shot was cool, but it was kind of blurry. I was much more impressed with the skill of the photographer than the quality of the lens on that one. (Almost surely the blurriness was the fault...

    IMO Point Lobos is an amazing place for photography (and just to be). But the whole coast around there is amazing.

    Really nice! IMO the lighting and framing are great. Both subject and photographer should be proud :)

    I'm not sure I agree that the bokeh of the 50 is "not that great as 85mm". I think the 50 f/1.2 has awesome bokeh.

    Such a lens would indeed be a beast. I doubt it would cost under $40K, but what do I know?

    I mean more than the 5Dc. One often sees ugly pattern noise before seeing much photon noise. But this is in part because the photon noise is so low (and, of course, because the read noise is not...

    The 5DII has more chroma and pattern noise relative to the amount of photon noise, which is definitely non-film like. But overall, the noise is so low that most would see this as an advantage rather...

    I used to use the 70-200 f/4 (non IS) and a rebel to take pictures of my son when he was a baby and daughter when she was small. I later upgraded to the 70-200 f/2.8 IS, and later the 70-200 f/2.8...

    I may be in the minority here, but I like a little more focal length when shooting babies. They're small after all, so I want a narrow FOV. On a camera like the rebel, I'd like to use a 70-200 zoom...

    Smaller pixels also mean any lens flaws are being magnified more. That could have something to do with it as well. (Not that the 200 f/2 has much in the way of flaws...)

    The only thing I can think of to cause the effect is light reflecting off moisture in the atmosphere.
