About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

Jack Simpson: I asked this question yesterday and Mr. Butler responded but, for the life of me, I can find my original query so, I'll ask it again …. apologies:

"Not sure, if this has been already mentioned, but, I wonder why they wouldn't have compared the A6300 to the (relatively) current Canon 7D Mk II, as opposed to the old Canon 7D?"

Thanks Richard :)

the ultra-wide angle shooting was over done along with the 'breath fogging up the lens" shots. But, before I get thrashed, I did appreciate the shooting within the limited (daily) times frame and the use of available light shooting :)

J A C S: I wish ads would not be presented as news so often.

@ Damien ….. Id never heard of ONA until I started working at the new camera shop in October 2015 and I'm, honestly, surprised at how many ONA bags we, actually, sell :o Price aside, quite nice bags

I'm, actually, surprised at how many ONA camera bags we do sell in our shops but, price aside, they are nice looking camera bags :)

marc petzold: Barney, does the 24-500 DL support a Lens Hood? Haven't seen one, both other DL's do have a square one, at least shown on Nikon Rumors.

Hi Marc,

If the 24-500 DL is anything like the P900, then, probably no lens hood, sadly :( Well, call me a liar, there is one :D …. second row of the accessories …. http://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/premium-compact-cameras/dl24-500-f%252f2.8-5.6.html#tab-ProductDetail-ProductTabs-Accessories

Beat me by 2 mins, J_M_MN :D

In reply to:

mikeodial: I realize this is blasphemy in the Pentax ranks, but if Pentax were able to create a version of this camera that would support Nikon and Canon mounts they would likely enter a whole new set of communities, plus be compatible with the majority of high end lens mounts in their target markets. (I know that's not a simple deal, but Sigma does this with their lenses.)

Look at FotoDiox, Mike :)

justmeMN: Another award winning photographer who used a Canon camera. :-)

@ Neez … I was looking for some of your photos in your gallery or challenges so I could compare you verbal version of "crappy image" but, no luck

You might want to withdraw it and convert to a monochrome and re-enter :)

Bhimaprasad Maiti: Not many like the one ranking 99 th position.Perhaps the voters were not given due inputs on Abstract landscape on sun rise sun set shots or the Host had not adhered to his Challenge theme.

No worries, Mr. Maiti :)

Hi Bill and thanks :) I think Mr. Maiti is, perhaps, too literal in his thinking to see an abstract thought/form :) As for his negative comments, back in my freelance PJ days I became accustomed to all sort of rejection and those were by pro's so, Mr. Maiti will have to try a little bit harder to try offend my photos or me ;)

I admire Henri Cartier Bresson :) but, this is pure cobblers and, well, a money grab but, I will give Mr. Kim credit for having the cobblers to do it, first.

Thanks Ian and, sadly, it was after I chose it, I realised that, when shooting it, I had cropped the bottom of the tyre off :o …… :( As I say with all my "almost" pics, next time ;) As well, I had another shot with the full tyre, but, it was just the tyre :(

Hi Maiti,

Have you asked the challenge moderator, "They call me Hans", what his thoughts are? Who knows, he might agree with you and give me the boot :o … :)
