comment What does f/4.5-5.6G stand for on a Nikon Lens?
I'd say it's all covered there, with the possible exception of variable aperture zooms. That can be easily fixed with an edit though...

comment What is the cause of this unusual concentric blob defect (taken in below zero conditions)?
While -14 °C may not be "unreasonably" cold for you, it's well outside the official operating range for the 600D / T3i (0 to 40 °C). As far as I can tell Canon don't give temperature ranges for their lenses, but it's reasonable to assume they'd be similar to the cameras; even the 1D X has a lower limit of 0 °C.

comment Can I tune the auto ISO algorithm on my Canon 600D?
Yep, it doesn't reduce the shutter speed if IS is in use. Probably worth reading Does Av mode on my Canon DSLR take IS into account when deciding shutter speed and ISO?.

comment Can I tune the auto ISO algorithm on my Canon 600D?
In my experience, my 550D won't go faster than 1/(1.6*f) which is the equivalent (pun intended) rule for (Canon) crop sensors. Are you getting shutter speeds faster than that?

@Lijo An argument based on "there are other bad questions here, so this one is OK" is specious. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Master_Thief_Garrett/…

List-type questions generally don't work too well on Stack Exchange. Is there any way you can refine this question down so that it has a more specific focus?

Personal views ahead. I have pretty strict standards for upvoting self-answered questions - they need to be excellent to get an upvote, and at the moment while the content here is good, the presentation drags it down too far.
