Comment by The Last Mohican (Linas The Amused One)(8/6/2016 11:03:56 AM) - square its a undisputable benefit, congratulations, very great shot

Comment by Stuart Holmes(7/31/2016 6:17:37 PM) - #3 Ray Griffiths( ): I picked up a Sony RX100Mk4 for very much the same purposes. I'm a bit disappointed in the Sony's focal range, but it's 1.8-2.8 is pretty nice and the Zeiss lens is sharp. It's nice to have in my pocket when I have tele mounted on the D750 and I need a wide shot, but I think I would be unhappy with it as my only camera on a trip. (Maybe we need a theme day where all the shots are on these new all-in-one's)

Comment by Ray Griffiths ( )(7/31/2016 3:35:54 AM) - #2 Stuart Holmes:

This camera has a function called "Post Focus" which, in simple terms, allows you to select the focus area after the image has been taken. In practice it is a bit more of a faff. It involves selecting a camera function that takes a short 4K video burst at different focus settings. During the shot, the camera must not be moved. After the shot, the touch screen is used to select the focus and an appropriate frame is saved as a jpg.

Being a compact, though, depth of field is not a strong feature, so if this was a serious shot I'd be using my DSLR. I'm just playing to see what can and can't be done with a walkabout.

I see the camera being used when I want to travel light or I want to be inconspicuous or, as is often the case nowadays, my DSLR is on a tripod setup for something else.

Comment by Stuart Holmes(7/30/2016 9:59:05 PM) - I think you could push the exposure a bit here as well, but not too much. Also maybe I'd clone this bit out[^623;362;1] but that's pretty nit-picky. DoF is lovely, but I wish for a bit more background blur. That camera has a feature called "depth from defocus AF." Do you know what that's all about? Lovely shot!

Comment by Wessel-130766(6/4/2016 7:34:41 AM) - Great shot.
Personally I didn't like the sigma. Had it for 2 years but it could never satisfy me. Bought the new Nikon 200-500. This one is really nice, bit heavy but great VR

Comment by Reidar(6/3/2016 6:54:18 PM) - #3 Ray Griffiths( ):
Thanks a lot!!

Comment by Ray Griffiths ( )(6/3/2016 2:19:15 PM) - Sigma 150-500. Not sure they make this one any more, Reidar, there's a new 150-600 that replaced it, but yes I'm happy with this lens, sometimes needs a contrast boost but that's easy enough. I've had it for about five years and bought it from hdewcameras.co.uk. I guess you could probably pick up the 500 on ebay.

Comment by Reidar(6/3/2016 12:51:13 PM) - Agree with Sreten. Beautiful picture!
I am looking for one teleobjectiv, but I am not sure where to buy it.
Can you give me all the data for this one? Are you satisfied with the lens?
Best regards....Reidar

Comment by Sreten(6/3/2016 5:39:47 AM) - It looks that this Sigma 150-500 mm is very powerful lens. Great details and wonderful bokeh.
