comment Fun experiments I can do with my bridge camera?
Lens is f3.4-5.8, 24-720mm | Lots of ideas here in this SE question - related to a 18-55mm lens on a Canon 1000D. You have much more zoom, slower shutter response, worse noise performance, ... . AND much of the ideas in the answers there still relate. Note that there are a number of sample links from my answer. Note that the 'through the bars' type photos work bet at large aperture and distance to bars etc << focal length - so you have many opportunities with large zoom.

comment What causes the focus confirmation lights to blur?
Comment only: With no lens attached, I'd not be surprised if anything that could happen did happen wrt focus points, as focus is "impossible" [tm]. Also - 'I'd have thought' focus lights are very unlikely to be able to "blur" as they are (presumably) on or off or at best modulated in a point location. Occam suggests that To achieve what you are seeing means something has happened to the viewing system. Occam is not always right :-).

@MichaelClark THere is a Canon version link in bold text just above the table. 16/31 of the lenses in that table are Canon branded. ... Update: Added Canon table so no need to click on link. Left Nikon table as gives an even wider comparison cross-section.

Best not to accept a sole answer too soon. It may discourage others from answering and somebody may add some useful material. You can de-accept I think - and I'm happy for you to do so. Then if nobody else answers within a few days ... :-)

@MichaelT - re ?duplicates?: There is room for more comment on the Tamron even though it is mentioned elsewhere. The lens is relatively new and liable to be around'for a while yet' and some user input is liable to be useful to others. I just bought one. It's astoundingly good. As good as the various user reviews say. Somewhat to my surprise.

comment Are the Yongnuo clones of Canon flash equipment and lenses legal to sell/buy?
Appearance is patentable in its own right (Design Patent if I recall the term correctly), and anything which is close enough to mislead by appearance alone may be covered by misrepresentation related legislation. The Apple/Samsung slab case was AFAIAA based not on whether one black slab looked like another black slab but whether black slabs had been with us for yonks in this context. Hence the eg 2001 Space Odyssey clips.
