    Bill W got a reaction from Boojay in CL - the image thread   
    I agree that there was nothing rude regarding jaapv's comments. He said he liked scene but technically it was lacking. Jaapv has done this to my postings and it made me go back and try different processing. He pointed out things I did not see when I posted. It can make on a better photographer.

    Not rude IMO - it is difficult to give negative feedback, and this is clear without being offensive. Anyone posting on social media must accept feedback, and it is unfair to specify only positive. I wish more people would post negative feedback on my images - I might become a better photographer.

    Are you concerned about your ability to hold the lens steady or something else? If you use a shutter speed equivalent there is no issue. I posted these earlier of the original and a cropped area. It was handheld at 135 ISO200 1/800 @ f6.3

    Bill W got a reaction from Louis in Trading X Vario and Q for CL   
    I owned the X vario at one time but did not really care for it simply for the fact it did not have a viewfinder.  I tried the external thing but that no go. That said, the CL is fabulous. I never owned a Q but I think that if you buy a CL, you will probably not use the Q much. I have all three zooms and the 23. They are all superb from my perspective. Even if you can only get the 18-56, I would go for it. The other ones can be picked up used at some point. FWIW

    They have a Novoflex adapter in the SL lens accessories. No clue if it works but if it is an "L" adapter it should. You might give them a shout. Its not cheap...!

    The only downside to the 55-135 at least in the US is that is is extremely hard to find one even used. Might not be that hard where you are.

    They invaded my old hometown where I was born (Austin, Tx) and I got out. There are several thousand of them in the downtown area. It is a mess as far as I am concerned or maybe I am just getting old and farty......!🤨

    Bill W got a reaction from jamesthurley in Thinking of downsizing from an SL to a CL. Anyone else done this?   
    I have both systems and have the three zooms for each. I can get the CL and its three zooms in one sort of small bag which weighs what the SL with 24-90 does so I tend to leave the house with the CL. The IQ is outstanding and at 70 years old, my body is suffering with joint pain far more than I wish. If I am working form my vehicle, I use the SL but to walk around, the CL is it. FWIW

    We went to the beach after Christmas and I was playing around with my CL + 34-155. I was trying to get a Pelican that kept flying away when I tried to get close but finally he landed and I had the lens at 155. I have the original here and the cropped in the next reply. I was really blown away with the sharpness I got handheld. This lens is a gem.
