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

On Canon confirms price drop on select EF lenses article (140 comments in total)
In reply to:

unclebuzz: Is this a case of only in the good old USA ?

What about the rest of us?

FWIW, Canon Canada had a price fluctuation (some up some down) in the beginning of July this year. Mind you, that was for stores and our costs. This "price drop", from Canon USA, may be just for pricing at the Canon (Online) Store.

Walking the walk is one thing but, IMVHO, talking the talk is a wee bit more important ;)

I can't believe so many people have no problem putting in such large files (1600 x) don't they realise that there are C&P'ers out there? :o

In reply to:

Cheng Bao: The interesting part is this camera's brand name.

Ricoh has dropped pentax brand on its fixed-lense digicam line, updates of old pentax wg line all bear ricoh name now.

Now this one use pentax brand again.

:D :D :D

My thoughts exactly, C_B, I thought all the compact were going to go with the Ricoh name?

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1544 comments in total)
In reply to:

nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.
Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.
$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.
Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.

@ Solarider ….. :D

In reply to:

RichRMA: Why do they optimize these lenses for use in the lower focal lengths? Does anyone really go around shooting at 150-200mm with such a lens? It would be far better to just make a 400-600mm f/5.6 and avoid the medium telephoto region completely.

I'm guessing, so people can use their 18-200 > 250>270 lenses in conjunction with their 150-500>600 lenses :D

In reply to:

LeitzKameraAktion: A large fish? That sounds even more surreal than my strawberry!

Trust me, it was. It was in an lane off of Vancouver's (BC) notorious Skid Row/Junkie town and as I was shooting it, there
were junkies wandering down the alley with some pretty weird expressions on the their faces ;) and only one asked what I was doing :D I'd love to find the pic and post it :)
