On Lens Rentals Canada closes its doors article (178 comments in total)

10 to1 it is a combination of making a very good living with Canon Rumors, and not having to put up with employee's and all the other head aches in retail business.
Being an internet tool pusher is much easier. Let someone else handle the shipping and hardware end of it.
I doubt shipping was the root cause of this decision.
Does B&H ship to Canada? I see all kinds of e-bay folks ship
ing from Canada! Does Amazon ship to Canada?

On Flickr brings back Pro account option article (74 comments in total)
In reply to:

Porsupah: As an existing Flickr Pro subscriber, having read that press release, I was wondering what they'd said of relevance to me. Then it occurred to me - they were proudly announcing the price would remain the same for two years.

Quietly, Pro has gone from $25/year (or $45/two years) to $50/year.

The copywriter is to be commended, given nobody's pointed that out, including the DPR staff.

Yea, in the same boat as you... Seems like we are fixing to see a 100% price increase in two years... That sucks.
Thanks for nothing Flickr.

Snapper2013: What's with all that rubber on the front end of these lenses and does it serve a purpose or is it some kind of tacky marketing gimmick?

I think it is for when you hand hold. It gives you something to grip. These lenses are hand holdable and will used that way allot. Light weight with 4-5 stops of IS will make these lenses a dream for Nikon shooters.

slippedcurve623: Now If nikon updates their 200mm f/2, the 200-400mm f/4 ii (yea the nikon 200-400 ii is not as sharp, even when compared to canon 70-200mm f/2.8 ii) as well as releasing the d900 with the a7r ii sensor, then I might jump ship from canon :-)

I'm thinking the same. I personally doubt Canon will improve there sensor's. I've stopped buying all Canon products until they get up to speed. Almost 3 years now.

Wow, and with the best sensors in the camera's.... Cannot wait to see the results.

Kinda curious why anyone would pick this over the new Sony?
What are the advantages?

I do not know much about these cameras. But the 800 ISO shot looks like my 7D noise. I would not buy one. Just me I guess.

If Panasonic would come out with a 300mm F/4 lens. I would be all over this. Great machine, but the micro 4/3 does not have the tele's I want yet.

Since M4/3 is an open system. Does that mean the AF will be just as good as the OEM's?
