ArchiDeos: Wow just Wow.. Awesome 7D Mark II. I have the original but there is a big temptation here to upgrade. I just left my 7D to my wife a week ago when I'm in vacation, and now big news come from PhotoKina 2014 events. My original plan is to get some big lenses for my next vacation, but seeing this awesome camera I'm tempting to buy a new one. As for the specs, this is a 1DX Crop version. Which is every Action photographer wants including me.. Great Job Canon for this awesome 7D Mark II..

This is certainly NOT a 1DX Crop version.
Be "awesomed" by it all you feel you have to but don't try to pass it for what it can not be.
Hold (...and shoot with...) a 1DX for 30 minutes and you'll see what I am talking about.

Ok...What do you guys want to release the new 100-400 to the market?
Should we take prisoners and start negotiations...?...Is it a sexual thing...?...Something Hentai related?...Gives us a clue, at least.

PhotoKhan: "Spot-metering linked to AF point"...oh...they DO listen, after all.
Let's only hope this is something that does not get dropped in future interactions.

Oh...Maybe Richard or Rishi can sort this one out and correct the info, if necessary?

Ozyxy: where's my flip-out touchscreen??

I know...It's like they're a washing machines manufacturer that just so happens to also make cameras...Do they even talk to their users base?

Hmmm...No red dot...?
I guess they're about to find out who a significant part of their clients are.

OneMoreComment: Those two Samsung have the wrong logo on their back .....

@Lars,

It is one thing that commenting readers are inaccurate about facts.

That an editorial staff member happily propagates a craftily created piece of "legal-industrial intelligence" makes one wonder "Why?"

It is possible Samsung has "stolen" many things from Apple in the past. It is also possible true the other way around is also a the case.

Samsung, however, did not "stole" design.

Get your facts straight. You owe it to your readers.

skytripper: Shockingly mediocre selection.

Are you always the same guy, under different alias, commenting on every photo contest I ever lay my eyes on, claiming how bad the entries are and then not having a single photo to show for when we click on the handle...?

...or is it a company, a club or some other social entity doing the tired bit...?

Direct link | Posted on Sep 4, 2014 at 18:33 UTC

Wikipedia does not need this bad press.

Someone in charge should see the possible negative impact on an organisation that counts heavily on our collective goodwill and order the photo to be removed ASAP.

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArcaSwiss: You're cramming this website with more and more useless articles. All the while not bothering to review Canon 1DX. Something smells rotten.

(continued)

Still lacking reviews of long-ago launched but current DSLRs while keeping justifying their nonexistence with the time it took for a manufacturer to provide a review sample at launch time sounds more like bitter payback than a sensible explanation.

...but, hey, as ArcaSwiss so aptly put it, at least we DO have these "Drobian" reviews, right?

(...if this sound harsh and you feel DPR efforts are not appreciated, please know it is not so. You see, I have this peculiarity: I usually only go to the trouble of criticizing what I love.)

@Barney,

That was a tongue-in-cheek reference to how the repeated lack of reviews of some of the 2 major DSLR manufacturers flagship models over the years has (not) been explained and how it seems so hard , for some of DPR staff and moderators, to understand that such reviews absences in the most important photography site on the Net are as conspicuous as the lack of a review from a top model from a major car manufacturer would be in a best-selling cars magazine.

Those who love to write about cars, while also loving to drive normally have special enthusiasm when given the opportunity to test and write about those top models.

Those who love to write about photographic cameras, while also loving photography should also normally get a kick out of reviewing those flagships.

Oh,oh!...Don't go there.
You'll be forcibly-explained, with nonsensical arguments, how it actually makes sense.

Curious editorial line.
Some forum moderators, for instance, could very well consider it "bashing".
