Nice.

Not much in the way of fall colors up this way this year. They're telling me it's because August/September was so dry.

Nice images

Why do they call it "Fall" and not "Autumn"

"Fall" comes from the original German/ Old English word. "Autumn" derives from French.

So in a way, here in the States we're more "English" than the Brits.

Smile 12-100mm f4

Another wonderful series of images using the 12-100mm.

Maybe Santa, or more accurately, Mrs. Santa will be kind to me this year and surprise me with my very own 12-100mm

LOL..it is a very nice lens, although I will say, after using it for a while and then changing back to the 12-40mm f2.8, the 12-40 seems positively tiny. The advantage of the 12-100 is when you consider it being a substitute for both the 12-40 and 40-150mm f2.8's. Today I happen to have the three f2.8 zooms (7-14 being the third lens) with me. The 7-14 is always in the bag and when I'm using the 12-100 the third lens is the 25mm f1.2.

I can probably shoot about 90% of the time with the 12-100 at f5.6 and just adjust the shutter speed as needed when shooting manually. f4 works really well at blurring the background out in the upper-end of the zoom range. f8 is about as small as I would ever stop down although I did notice I stopped it down to f11 a few times at White Sands and image quality didn't seem to suffer all that much. The dual body-lens IS combination is just crazy good.

The image below is a very good example of the resolving power of the lens. Stopped down to f5.6 and captured at 28mm, this image from the Arboretum is nothing spectacular, but if you click on the image, which will take you to the full size file, enlarge it to 100% and look on the right-hand side of the frame, just across from where the leaves hang out the furthest from the left and you'll see a couple of dragon flies that are nicely defined.
