You guys crack me up, complaining about the buffer, I make my living taking photos of outdoor adventure events, zip lining, white water rafting etc., I use Nikon gear and have no idea what the buffer size is in any of my cameras, we don't have time to spray and pray and have the guests sort through a bunch of images and pick out the ones they buy, we do that for them by getting one or two good photos of them. If you need a large buffer for Fido running around the backyard, get a V1.

What most people do not realize is that a monitor capable of viewing the 4k resolution is going to set you back about $34,000.00 on the low end, about $70k for a 56 inch model.

Bill McClung: How about a version for the Sony NEX cameras?

A lot of "ifs" in these responses, the bottom line for me is that I'm not willing to put an "if" between my already expensive full frame camera and over paid models sucking up paid by the hour lighting and make up people. I'm sure this Tamron will be a good lens, but I'm not sure where the aim is, pros won't buy it and wonder how many prosumers will shell out $1,200 for it. Plus, as someone mentioned previously, third party lenses just do not hold their value, buy the Nikon version and use it for a few years and sell it at a $200.00 loss, buy the Tamron, sell it in a few years and it will have ended up costing you more than if you had bought the Nikon.

In 1970, Karl Wallenda walked across Tallulah Gorge on a cable. I was there that day, a ten year old. I visited the gorge last week, this is what remains of one of the cable support towers.
