    First Pics with the 500



    Well, after months of agonizing over this purchase, The 500 arrived today. Went out this evening to take a few test shots of back yard birds and here arethe results. Now I know what all the fuss is about. This lens rocks. I can't wait to see what it can produce when I have had some practice with it. Thanks to all for all of the encouragement to "go for it"

    Well, Of Course, But It is a little ruff inside the house. Also, I don't know why this string ended up in "Buy and Sell" But I can assure everyone that nothing is for sale here.





    Thanks,

    Yea I heard the same thing. The moon hasn't been this close to the earth in several years.


    The predictions I heard is it could cause earthquakes and tsunami's. I read that prediction a day or two before the earthquake hit in Japan. Scary huh?

    Glad nothing has happened before. Sometimes humans borrow trouble where it need not be.

    Three in a row coincidence:





    [View:http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2011-03/biggest-full-moon-20-years-almost-certainly-wont-cause-huge-natural-disaster]


    "Past supermoons have coincided with natural disasters--the Indonesian earthquake in 2005, Australian flooding in 1954--but scientists note that those are unrelated, more likely than not. Says John Bellini, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey: "A lot of studies have been done on this kind of thing by USGS scientists and others. They haven't found anything significant at all." The tides will pull a bit higher, but earthquakes are almost completely unaffected and volcanoes are not likely to show unusual behavior. John Vidale, a seismologist at the University of Washington in Seattle, said "Practically speaking, you'll never see any effect of lunar perigee. It's somewhere between 'It has no effect' and 'It's so small you don't see any effect.'""
