    Darwin,

    I really enjoy your articles and read them over and over until something sticks. I have a couple of questions. I currently a couple of screw on hoya polarizing filters that give me very mixed results. I often get a very uneven color cast when using my 12-24 wide angle. Is there anyway to avoid or correct in pp? The general color cast appears bluish. Would the LB polarizer solve this issue? And is the spocket version $390.00 really worth that kind of money? A good topic for a future article is how to use the tilt shift lens for landscape photography.

    • You should not get uneven colour cast, uneven exposure in the sky is common with a polarizer and a wide angle lens, but an uneven colour cast? Borrow another polarizer and see if you get the same thing. I think the new Z-sized LB polarizer is really good, a review is upcoming. A tilt shift article is upcoming as well. Darwin

    Darwin, I look forward to your article on tilt shift lenses. I especially hope it addresses the issue of manual focusing with these lenses and your recommended approach.
    Looking at some of your work and the associated comments it seems that you have adjusted your T/S lenses to have the tilt and shift in the same plane. Is this the case? If yes did you make this modification yourself or was it done by the manufacturer? The reason I ask this is that I have read that on the Nikon T/S lenses one can remove the four screws in the bottom plate and simply turn the plate through 90 degrees. Your thoughts?
    Love your work and willingness to share with other enthusiasts.
    Jim

    • I did indeed have the shift and tilt in the same plane which to me makes more sense for landscape photography – I had Canon make the modification but it is possible to do it yourself with the Nikon lenses. More to come on Tilt shift lenses soon. Darwin

    Hey Darwin, after reading your, Can You Trust Autofocus with Your Digital Camera? article I was curious and try it on my Nikon D7000 and sigma 17-50 os… I was like WOW… I though my lens was Tack sharp but after the test focusing manually is like if Im shooting at f/4 or f/5.6, its a really big big difference, thanks for opening my eyes to this, cheers.
