      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Tamron 70-200mm 2.8

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience shooting this lens for faster action work? i.e. sports or BIF's If so, what types of sports or birds (how fast did the focus work)? I shoot Nikon, but this lens is available in multiple mounts and over $1000 less than the Nikon version. I'm trying to decide if I can get by using this for the time being or if I need to save up for the Nikon glass. Thanks in advance!

I can't tell you anything about the Tamron but I use the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 and it's a great lens. I think I paid around $600 for it slightly used. I would guess Tamron wouldn't be much different but I can't say for sure.

I have this lens in the Sony mount. It is faster (auto focus wise) than the Sigma 70mm f2.8 lens. The Sigma might have an edge on sharpness, but both are very nice and well worth the money saved, IMHO.

I don't shoot fast action subjects, so I can't be of specific help. But I'm sure the Nikon is faster at AF than either the Tamron or Sigma, as my Sony lens are faster too, but the gap is closing.
