Tamron 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Tamron 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens Review.
Perhaps the most in-demand comparison is the Tamron 35mm f/1.8 Di VC vs. Canon 35mm f/2 IS Lens, this one showing both lenses placed under the microscope of the Canon EOS 5Ds R. The comparison is initialized at f/2, but any apertures can be compared. EOS 1Ds Mark III results are also available, allowing direct comparison with most other lenses in our database including the Sigma 35 Art Lens.
B&H has the Tamron 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens in stock.
Also just added are standardized product images for the Tamron 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens.
Lots of great comparisons can be made with these images. I'll get you started.

DJI Phantom 3 Quadcoper
From Reuters:
"The Obama administration said on Monday that it would require drone owners to register their unmanned aircraft as part of an effort to curtail rogue drone flights that pose a danger to commercial aircraft and crowded public venues.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced the creation of a task force of private sector and government representatives to craft recommendations for establishing the first ever federal drone registry.
The recommendations are due by Nov. 20, and administration officials hope to have the registry in place before Christmas, when they say that more than 1 million new drones could be given as gifts to new untrained operators. The registration requirements would also apply to drones already in use."

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Lens and ... Sometimes Clear Blue Skies are Just Fine
When presented with clear blue skies, I often avoid having significant sky coverage in my frame. But sometimes, blue is beautiful.
With a bright, evenly-colored background, the top of the mountains being hit by the morning sunlight creates a strong, eye-catching line. The strong contrast of the mountain shadow creates a second strong line. Take a great scene and reflect it to get symmetry with the result often being greater than twice as good as the image without a reflection.
The choice of focal length is always very important for composing an image. In this case, the twin peaks of the Maroon Bells were of primary interest to me. A focal length that makes these peaks large in the frame will best emphasize their over 14,000' size. I captured many frames using longer focal lengths, but I also liked seeing the bigger picture. With a mirror-calm water surface large enough to reflect the entire scene, I took advantage of the wider angle focal lengths available in the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens on this morning.
When not to use a circular polarizer filter: at sunrise or sunset, with a wide angle focal length being used and large amounts of blue sky in the frame, it is unlikely that I have a CPL filter mounted on my lens. A CPL filter used with a low sun angle and lots of evenly-toned blue sky in the frame is a perfect recipe for very uneven darkening of the sky, a look that is generally not appreciated.
This is a complicated HDR image based on three differently-exposed source images. Removed from this image was a line of other like-minded photographers.
A larger version of this image is available on Flickr, Google+, 500px and Facebook. Also, if reading from a news feed reader, click through to see the framed image.

From the Phlearn YouTube Channel:
In today's episode, we show you how to stylize a magazine cover in Photoshop!
Note: I tried something very similar to this a few years ago. It was a fun personal project and a great way to help hone my Photoshop skills. [Sean]

Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 USM Lens
Amazon has the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 USM Lens available for $1,099.00 after a $380.00 price drop. Regulalry $1,479.00. (thanks Brian)
This is an obvious move to clear out old inventory after the 35L II's introduction. With a savings of $700.00 over its successor, the price-for-performance ratio makes the older lens a pretty good deal. [Sean]
