I go to the Farnes every year and Wetpixel has run trips there in the past.


If people are interested, I will run another one...


All the best

Hi Don,


My thoughts are that it would not be OK to deliberately prevent any animal for reaching sanctuary if it wishes to do so. I could understand if it happened inadvertently but if it is deliberate, this is a negative interaction.

Thank you for all the contributions.


I am interested to hear that the D500 and Sigma 8-16mm appear incompatible. This is actually pretty rare. Could it be a malfunction with the individual camera or lens?


The 11-16mm is akin testing focal length. Effectively, it is a 16-24mm on a full frame and i shoot quite a lot with the 16-35mm. The key will be whether the corners will work.


I've used the Tokina 10-17mm with a TC for CFWA in the past and it works well for that. It still produces lots of barrel distortion though. I actually quite like the distortion, unless there are obvious straight lines in the scene.


Thanks again for all the input.

Of course, my bad. Age has meant that I confused it with the Canon 8-15mm! I have shot the 8-16mm behind a Zen 230mm dome and found it pretty good.

Thank you for the responses gentlemen


I have used the Nikon 12-24mm and always found is pretty soft. 


I have also used the Sigma 8-16mm and liked it, although I am not a huge fan of full circle! Thank you for reminding me.


The 12-28mm sounds interesting. I am not sure of the focal length? Effectively 18-42mm on full frame. I guess that is close to the 16-35mm!


Has anyone used a Tokina 12-28mm on a Nikon DX camera?


Thanks again
