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:

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

On Street Strawberry in the Ricoh Challenge challenge (4 comments in total)
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 :)

Great he?
These multinaltionale lawyer-run smarties are sooo hateable.

And if one is stupid enough to upload someone else's pics and if the original photog gets annoyed and decides to sue Canon: … "7 MISUSE OF THE IRISTA SERVICES

Obviously, RF_88, doesn't take pics so, hence, his/her indifference to be done royally by Canon :)

All that video did was just pi$$ me off because, the times I visited Morocco in the 70's and 80's, photography was not even in my vocabulary :( But, some great ideas and shots :)

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1046 comments in total)
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
