How come nobody in OTAP turned me on to him. I've bookmarked his site now!
It's nice to read his site, but don't use it as your sole source of info.
His writing is very entertaining
I made the mcsteak of buying a lens off of a ken rockwell recommendation before I found otap....
I mean I guess it's sharp, but push-pull FTL and holy fuck is the focus loud and inaccurate.
I was looking at that lens but decided to just wait for a 2 ring 80-200 f/2.8. He did a pretty good write up on wide angle zooms.
Edit: wrong information
the lens in the first post actually is a great, sharp, cheap lens
He's a contrarian and it pisses me off. He uses the same stupid tricks they do on the news to grab attention.
Pffft.... K.R. is not the chuck norris of photography like sackriders want to believe.
there is no such thing as f/3
you want it?
wow I completely remembered the quote wrong. Here it is
"[FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]3.) Fixed focal length lenses aren't needed, except for macro or super tele. The faster f/stops of fixed lenses aren't needed with digital's high ISOs. Almost all lens development in the past 20 years has been focused on zooms, so as digital dawns there are few things that zooms can't do better."
I still think its dumb
there is 3.2 though
I <3 my 100-400L
ken rockwell rated the 18-200 as one of the top 10 nikon lenses
For free except for shipping?
what is push/pull btw?
you push and pull to zoom in/out instead of turning.
fuck push pull
No.......Chuck Norris is the K.R. of Kung Fu
push pull sucks
