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

In reply to:

Kiril Karaatanasov: DPREVIEW guys do you think many D4s users shoot JPEG? Can you compare RAW files e.g. d4 vs d4s? Also is 5d mk3 and A7 in same league at all? How about 1Dx? Best will be test against A7s which seems to be closest in terms of sensor to D4s

Your correct, Tony, and the D4s is designed for Action Photogs (News and Sports) and Wildflife photographers with similar subject matter as you have in your gallery :). Most, if not all the PJ's, I know in North America shoot jpegs for the exact reasons you mention, looming deadlines :) That's not to say, for their own personal projects they may decide to RAW or RAW+ jpeg :)

JJ, what you state is great and true in the theory of Digital photography but, sadly, for a lot of photogs, jpegs are the reality of some photography :)

Cheers,

Jack

I'm guessing that "implied" must be the new "assumed" ;)

In reply to:

Jack Simpson: @ Barney Britton … have you used the XE-2 and how would you compare the two(2) in shooting? What I mean is, if you were used to the XE-2 would the XT-1 be much different in general operating?

Cheers and thanks in advance :)

@ Barney …. thanks very much for that and, no worries, re: late reply :)
