    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.

    Thumbs up You know, Steve has got a point ...

    There is no way in holy heck that the photographer could get a series of pictures like that unless that train was actually "parked" on the trestle. I kind of doubt they would want to do that for a picture, just so some bozo could run out there and change lenses.

    Moving on, though ... super zooms suffer more from atmospheric distortion than the "short guys" do. When you are shooting for distance ... the pay back is usually fuzzy and unclear, due to rising heat thermals and whatnot.

    Call me a "Doubting Thomas" if you want, but I'm not buying it, either.
