    Extraordinary image quality! I think though, as a study, it would be better framed to show the whole bird.

    Is Nikon done with Alphas

    Yeah Ford said that. He later came to think Hitler was an OK guy and was on to something. He was "cooperative" with Herr Fuhrer regarding Ford Germany. A somewhat outspoken anti-semite as well.

    Is Nikon done with Alphas

    "Is Nikon done with Alphas" Who can say for sure. I know I am. Maybe Nikon is more focused on the meat and potatoes part of the sport optics market and decided to leave to L, S, and Z to convince the public who's caviar is the freshest. For my part, I like the Monarch MHG (8x42 in my case)...

    Beautiful. Worthy of placement in a field guide, or a calendar

    Good photo, with attractive light. I'm wondering if a bit more exposure would create more contrast between the Grebe's crest and the background water.

    Veiling Glare Comparisons

    I have found thin neoprene sheet online before. Somewhere around 2mm thickness sounds about right to me for birding sized bins. I would cut strips of about 1-1 1/2" x the length that when closed would form the circumference of the bin's barrels, plus a bit for overlap. Cement the overlap to...

    Nice capture indeed! I’m right up the road from you. I’d be happy to see, let alone photograph this Warbler.

    Do I want an EII 8x30?

    What I liked about the EIIs was the apparent wide sharp field for their relatively low cost. And not much else. For me they were slow to focus, did not hang well from a neck strap, and didn’t hold too well for me using a thumbs up grip. I wouldn’t use them in wet or dusty or salty (beach)...

    They're called hoodoos. Thanks everyone for the kind comments

    Show us your Pocket Monocular

    Pocket? As in small? Here's my monocular next to my small travel bins 5x15-vs-16x70-jpg.184850 Ok, maybe not. Still pretty small though. Fits handily in a tee shirt pocket.

    Clever corvids

    While driving by a neighborhood park I saw a crow in the road up ahead of me seemingly looking at me in my truck. It set something down and flew to the curb whereupon it went right back to same spot behind me. It was taking fallen walnuts (park was an old walnut grove), determining where best to...

    Binocular Design: A Personal Look at Selected Kowa, Meopta and Opticron Models

    Oh, and about seeing Maria Bello's face in a pair of Opticron bins? Whoa dude. A good long walk might do you some good, or at least lay off the 'shrooms! :oops:

    Binocular Design: A Personal Look at Selected Kowa, Meopta and Opticron Models

    I admire your taste in guitars. The jury is still out regarding binoculars. ;) So, one comes to appreciate the look of the MeoStars? They look to me like a prop in a dermatologist's office as an example of a skin disorder. And don't all those nooks and crannies caused by all those blemishes make...
