    Thanks again, very interesting test.

    Does Konica-Minolta antishake always add French synonyms
    to every image? ;-)

    In your 80-200/2.8 series, I wonder why the letters are smaller
    at 1/50 second (-3 stops). Did you stand further away?

    I was trying to see whether -3 stops is a reasonable claim.
    Looks like a reasonable value is about -2.5 stops for your
    handholding style. The -2 shots are definitely clearer than
    the no-AS shost. Very convincing.

    How could you have taken more care? Your final paragraph
    implies you did not.

    The 100-300/4.5-5.6 APO looks increasingly attractive,
    being effectively 450mm at the long end.

    My pleasure. Or actually, I had to satisfy for myself that there was
    value in AS, and there clearly is. No big deal to put up a simple web page.
    Given the propensity of most separatist friendly towns (like mine) to
    simply put "Arrêt" and not "stop" at all, there's a certain cachet to
    the fact that it says "stop" at all (prev. mayor was Fed friendly,
    current one is not). The Arrêt v. stop issue was a symbolic red herring
    here in the first separation vote (1980) here.
    No. All the shots were taken from the same spot. I did crop these a
    bit tighter to fit more columns on the web page (cropped a little too
    much, but they serve the purpose). The crop size is approximate from
    image to image.

    I don't know yet if the 20 or 28mm shots will be taken from my front
    veranda or closer. We'll see how it looks.
    I can handhold better than that, but I really took care to not take
    care. The 100mm shots were taken earlier in the day closer to two stong
    cups of coffee. The 200's were a bit later. But the 80-200 is much
    heavier as well, so once I had the focus set, I left it alone and shot a
    little bit quicker.
    Brace standing, tighten up my elbows a bit. Control shooting and
    breathing... the usual. Franky, I haven't been to the Nautilus in a
    long time and it shows when holding a heavy camera/lens combo like that.
    I usually have either flash and/or a tripod.
    Could be. I have the 300 f/2.8 and 1.4 / 2.0 TCs... the results of the
    300 (w/ tripod) and 7D are very good. With the TC's it's softer as
    should be expected.

    Cheers,
    Alan
