Canon employed 1,569 people in Melville in 2017, according to the most recent state records. It must report its local employment annually to the state and to Suffolk County, both of which aided in the construction of Canon’s $500 million headquarters near Exit 49 of the Long Island Expressway.Read the entire article at Newsday.
The company moved from Lake Success to Melville in 2013 after a 25-year search for a new home. It has exceeded the employment promises made to the state and Suffolk so far. State records show Canon's employment cannot fall below 1,360 people or it would have to pay back some of the grant money and tax-break aid it has received.
In the center, that’s the highest MTF I’ve seen on a non-supertelephoto lens. The highest. Let’s put particular emphasis on the purple line, which is 50 lp/mm. That’s a higher frequency than any manufacturer tests (that we know of), appropriate for fine detail on the highest resolution cameras. We would consider an MTF of 0.5 at 50 lp/mm to be very acceptable. This is hugely better, nearly 0.8 in the center. We’ve never seen that kind of resolution before.The lens performed so well that Roger decided to test the lens at 100 lp/mm, something they don't usually do unless a lens is designed for 150+ MP sensors.
The MTF drops away from the center, of course, but even at the very edges, the readings are still quite high.
At 100 lp/mm the Sony 135mm f/1.8 GM has a higher MTF than most excellent primes do at 50 lp / mm. If you don’t speak MTF, basically that means this lens can resolve fine details that would be a blur on excellent lenses.Roger would go on to say:
...in a couple of years if you are shooting a 90-megapixel camera, this lens will be the one that wrings the most detail out of that sensor. Right now it looks at your 43 megapixels and goes, “that’s cute.”You can read the entire article on the LensRentals Blog.
Just let me know how much I owe you and the preferred method of payment and I'll make it happen.His reply came the following morning right as the California workday began.
Hello SeanAgain, I realize these end caps (they sent a set of 3) weren't expensive items. In fact, shipping them to me likely cost as much (if not more) than what a company might typically charge for them. But that's not the point. When you purchase high quality products from a well-known and well-respected manufacturer like Matthews Studio Equipment, you get the type of customer service that their reputation is built upon. Yes, their equipment is priced a little higher than its competitor's products, but you'll likely find dealing with Matthews' customer service to be easier/more pleasant than dealing with the customer service department of a competing (cheaper) brand based in different part of the world. And even if those other brands offer similar customer service, it's highly unlikely that a replacement part coming from – for example, Asia – will arrive as quickly as one coming from California (for USA citizens, at least).
I will mail these out to you today free of charge. No payment needed.
Have a good day
Whereas the standard DJI Ronin-S comes with a focus wheel, control cables, a power adapter, and other accessories, the Essentials Kit includes the gimbal and the key accessories required to go out and begin shooting. There's a difference of only several accessories, accompanied by a substantially more affordable cost, and you can always add a focus wheel or other accessory at a later point.DJI Ronin-S Essentials Kit Highlights
