  1. Rudy, same thing happened to me almost a year back. I caught it in time and immediately notified SS. Have changed my pwd since then but it almost took a year to clean out my email, I still end up getting some junk emails... Glad you caught it as well.
  2. No, I haven't used them - too expensive for me; plus you can take advantage of them with EF lenses only. Down the line, with so many excellent RF lenses coming out, it might make sense to for some to completely transition out of the EF line. These adapters seem to be well reviewed at BHPhoto though, and it's definitely less painful to use the drop-in filter adapter compared to screwing on a separate filter on each lens that you own. However, I read that the variable ND filter only starts at 2, so if you do not want the ND effect, you need to purchase a clear glass filter else the open filter socket can let in dust etc. into your camera. Same issue with the polarizer.
  3. OP, I have been shooting with the Canon EOS R since the past few months and I love it. It was a learning curve initially, but I was also vested in Canon EF lenses so decided to move to the R instead of other mirrorless systems. I really like the AF system on the R and the EVF and the articulating screen! (What I don't like - the multifunction bar...its positioned awkwardly in my opinion). I still hold DSLRs in high regard but have not found any difference in the low light and noise performance between the R and the 5D Mark IV. I don't do video, and don't shoot much sports and wildlife either, so won't comment on those. But for landscapes and flowers and more, this camera will do very well plus the new RF lenses are simply outstanding (and you can still use your EF lenses with the adapter).
  4. Yes, I remember well Laurin. Wonderful memories of a wonderful workshop!
  5. Happy Birthday Laurin! Wishing you many more!
  6. Sorry to hear this Dave, but the doctor's confidence in overcoming this is encouraging. Keep the chin up and best wishes for your fight against cancer. Wishing you a full speedy recovery.
  7. Congratulations Mike! Your story is inspirational!
  8. Oh, I remember this lesson - beautiful photo! Great memories and friendships formed, and valuable lessons learnt during your and Dave's wonderful workshop!
  9. Very inspirational! All the best to Mike for a successful climb at Yosemite and all future endeavors. Not sure if he remembers me from the MV workshop, but tell him that he has my best wishes.
  10. Congrats! Here's mine when I reached that milestone from a couple of months ago Sorry to hear of your troubles. Here's a poem for you - poet unknown. Don't Quit When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up though the pace seems slow-- You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than, It seems to a faint and faltering man, Often the struggler has given up, When he might have captured the victor's cup, And he learned too late when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown. Success is failure turned inside out-- The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-- It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
  11. Ofcourse, I remember Mike - it was wonderful learning from him at your and Dave's MV workshop. I am so glad that he is doing well post surgery as are you!! Cheers to both of you - wishing you both a long and healthy life!
  12. OP, I have the Tamron 150-600 f/5-6.3 lens for Canon as well and have not noticed any weird patterns . I use it regularly to shoot birds and my kids' sports - attached is my latest with this lens. But I do think it is a touch soft at 600mm. https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/female-cardinal-perched-on-branch-about-621485723?src=kZVZo3JSduc_5MGllSvn6Q-1-36
