    no sigma SD14 posts?

    I'm surprised with the new sd14 released just days away, there have been no posts about it. The last post was back in november. This forum seems kinda dead for sigma cameras.

    This was my first non kit lens and I really enjoyed the quality. When stopped to f4, it becomes pretty sharp. The range is useful, but not wide enough. Contrast is so-so not very contrasty, and...

    color totally depends on WB adjustment

    on the outdoors shot, the canon could have been more like the olympus if it had a warmer WB. I prefer cloudy, over even "shade" on my XT. But saturation and WB adjustment can do more than the...

    parfocus helps a lot

    when you have enough time to compose a good shot, use manual focus, zoom in all the way, focus manually, then zoom out. The wide angle will remain in focus. very sharp images. Next, when outdoors,...

    don't you think that a $1000 P&S would compete with the Rebel? Canon makes a lot more money from lens and would like to develop the upper end as much as possible. I think any camera that costs more...

    ever try to parfocus?

    On my S2, I found that manual focus is much easier when I zoom in, focus manually, then zoom out. The subject becomes much easier to focus that way and the lens remains focused on that distance. try...

    try exposure bracketing

    in trickier situations, I use exposure bracketing on my 350D. Or I shoot in Raw and try to adjust later

    hmmm....good points. I fully agree. I will trust that canon has plenty of tricks up their sleeves to maintain a competitive edge. I am quite loyal to the canon name as it has been used by my parents...

    I personally like to use manual focus and set to infinity when shooting at full telephoto on the S2. for macro, again I like manual focus or just try at different angles to prefocus.

    yeah, I keep hearing that it is faster, but doesn't anyone have objective data, or does canon keep it top secret?
