comment What are these dark spots in my pictures?
yes thank you I think what I'm really trying to find out is if this is dust (which would be my fault) or oil drops (which may be covered by my warranty?).

comment What are these dark spots in my pictures?
Is there a reason they show up much stronger some times and not at all other times? I think they appear much stronger when using a smaller aperture (or potentially taking a picture of something brighter).

comment How does photography for digital display only differ?
@Paul, ultimately, when displaying on a monitor, the image will have to be converted to RGB. The only reason to use another colour space if the pictures are never going to be printed would be for better results in post, but if that's what you're after, shoot raw and edit in 16 bit colour ...

@mattdm, what do you trust more, the downsampling on your computer or that in your phone?

comment How do you photograph rain hitting a surface?
Am I just being paranoid or does the book "Understanding Exposure" get a bit too much exposure on this site..?

+1 for "you will have to use it". I did a bit of photography in a martial arts competition and thought that I would be doing OK with my newly acquired 105/2.8 (an awesome lens btw). I still ended up having to peg the camera at ISO 1600 to get anything half decent.

If you're shooting at 1/250, then VR is probably not going to give you much bang for the buck as you wouldn't get much blur from camera shake for an exposure that short (assuming proper technique). Also, although manual mode and fixed shutter speed makes sense, you may be even better off with shutter priority mode and auto ISO.
