    I'm thinking to buy this lens as well. B&H Photo is selling at USD 192.95 (approx SGD 249), even added with shipping cost (USD 41 via UPS) is still cheaper than the shop here. But I don't know whether it is international warranty or not. Otherwise, I'll buy from like yours. Most of the...

    Singapore Airshow 2008, 19 to 24 February 2008.

    Will trade visitor be allowed to take photographs of the static display aircraft? I am planning to go there as trade visitor, because in public days it will be too crowded to be able to take picture of an aircraft without somebody in front of it.

    No TV can get fined ?!

    I never listen to radio, yet I have to pay for the radio license everytime I renew my road-tax. There is no opt-out. For me, this is a "forced donation". How about those handphones with radio, shall they pay radio license too?

    Shutter speed does not change DOF (as long as other parameters are the same). Distance between subject to background, yes, it applies the same rule as subject-to-camera distance. (DOF is applicable to both sides: from the subject toward camera, and from the subject toward background).

    Soft focus filter will only create "softer lines of contrast", but it does not alter the shape of the lines. Therefore a hexagonal bokeh will still be hexagonal, just the outer lines will be smeared to appear soft. Usually, opening the lens to its maximum aperture will render the bokeh as...

    Is it true ?

    Not a surprise. Film can be very good and can be very bad. Film should be "more correct", but it also has grains which sometimes may obscure the details. Some types of film have so much grains, while some others are very fine grain. An under-exposed film yields much more grains than a...

    If teaching is a "calling", then why all those fuss about claiming expenses (except big-expenses)?

    Teachers Sponsoring Education

    How much is the income (salary) of a teacher? If the net income (after substracted with the "out of pocket expenses") is still good enough, then I want to be a teacher, and I will happily pay all of those extra stuff out of my own pocket.

    Some color observations

    I suggest you add one more parameter to your observation: - How many of those pictures you saw, were shot using film (either slides or negatives) and how many using digital. Today's Canon optics are as good as Nikon. Nikon had been popular longer than Canon, and still popular today with...

    Why choose Nikon?

    There are several threads similar as this. The oldest was started at 2002 by Ckiang: I'm a Nikon user, but not because it is better than others. In the early 1980s, I was using Canon AE-1, and happy with it until the end of 80s when Canon...

    The case is: some people still prefer an apple, but he found out that it is much easier and faster to get an orange instead of apple. Therefore they get an orange and squeezing out creativity to make it tastes like an apple. Very much the same situation in hi-end audio arena, where people found...
