Shouldn't you be reading something more interesting? :p

Other than hanging out with my cats and flying small airplanes, in my free time I like to work on my fantasy basketball site, XoHoops (if you like a keeper league / simulation-based fantasy basketball site, please join!).

Currently, I'm employed as an engineer developing the Windows app for PlanGrid.

Also, author of WootzJs, a C# to Javascript cross-compiler and ReactiveUI.Fody, a Fody plugin that generates the necessary boiler-plate when using ReactiveUI.

@kirkwoll on Twitter.

I also occasionally blog.

Thanks, worked great. And I didn't have to buy anything new. :)

Great answer. Thanks for the systematic comparison of the different permutations. I found it very helpful.

Thank you for this excellent explanation. I still remain unclear; why one would purchase a pure telephoto lens? Comparing with zoom lens, it seems like a good zoom lens can often offer similarly large focal lengths as a pure telephoto lens.

Oh dear. I'm sure you are most certainly correct. But I forgot to add to my question, "Please talk to me like I'm stupid." :) I was hoping for a completely lay explanation.
