Professionally, I'm a software engineer with experience across the software development lifecycle. My interests include technology, the social sciences (primarily psychology and sociology), productivity, and the intersection of these things. Personally, I'm a hobbyist photographer, a runner, an avid reader, and a casual gamer.

My CV is available on StackOverflow Careers and LinkedIn.

My wishlists are on Amazon for professional development, photography, and general stuff.

accepted Is there a reason to keep both a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G and a 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G lens for my Nikon D5100?

That's a fixed-focal length lens. Not comparable.

@DanWolfgang Those are clearly specified on the specs tabs on the pages I linked to. Yes, those are considerations, but I'm more interested in what isn't documented.

This really doesn't answer my question. I know I won't improve the aperture. I'm interested in having a lens with a wider range of focal lengths without impacting image quality.

comment How can I force my D5100's shutter to stay open?
Ah. I wouldn't have ever associated "bulb mode" with this functionality. It works perfectly!

accepted Does the Nikon D5100 have a mode or the ability to create a mode to support an effect similar to black and white film photography?
