I lent my brother my 24-120mm that night. Sorry you don't like my choice of lenses.
And... Howard... you need to back off with the attitude and insulting tone in this thread. I mean it.
I never talk to you like this, and you are making a big mistake with this attitude with me in this post and your previous ones in this thread. I thought you were an ok guy, but so far, you are disproving that with your over the top, rude and inaccurate comments.
When you want to behave nice, we can talk about what is an obvious issue with AMP NOISE, not soft lenses or post processing or white balance.
