    Okay,

    I bounded outside ... ... with the 70-400 G mounted on the α850 and took its 9000th shot, of one of our recent sunflower blooms. This image is 8999 ...

    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.

    Winter here is way colder. More like -1 to -20 and wind chill factor on top of that which has been up to -36. So what I'm asking for is just spring/fall like weather :-D
    I just plain hate the heat.

    15-20 is not bad! 20s are pleasant. This entire week's high is just under 40 and so it's quite miserable being outside during the day.

    That top shot just looks uncomfortable. But I guess that's the sacrafice one must pay to minimize tan lines.
