    Sean, is there any particular reason you cannot make due with a monopod of some kind? Relying on 'SSS', if you do not have to, may be a mistake with longer glass. I usually take my Manfrotto 682 (hidden tripod foot) with me and if I did not use it, fine ... but, it is there if I need it.

    It also makes one hell of a 'billy-bat' in a riot!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Is it really that bad for longer lengths?

    I know we had talked about the those low light high ISO settings, but I keep forgetting if it's SSS on or off! so much to make a habit of knowing. And the 682 is on my things to buy list, along with the pistol grip quick release head. They now make it with the grip action horizontal to the ground instead of vertical, any opinions?

    Dr4gon my understanding that the long glass is more suspect even to the internal vibrations of the camera when fully extended, also with the "cranked up' settings I have been playing with it is one more thing to introduce or enhance noise to the shot. next game I will shoot half with on and half off and see if I can post differences.

    Question Discontinued?

    Did they really stop making the vertical one? I know at one time BOTH were available. Personally, the vertical one works for me.

    I see. I wonder if optical lens IS has this same issue? I would think not since it's built into the lens?

    Just looking around on ebay and what not the only ones i am seeing are the horizontal, the vertical just seems to make more sense to me, and would be more natural.
