Marty4650: Whenever I use the Amazon customer reviews, I completely ignore the 5 star and the 1 star reviews, and read only the 2, 3, and 4 star reviews. My thinking is the fanboys will give it 5 stars, so there is no point even reading those reviews, and 1 star reviews are mostly people upset because the UPS truck arrived when they weren't home, had a warranty problem, or simply didn't read the product description and ordered the wrong product.

You usually find the most informative reviews in the middle of the rankings.

Very sound advice.

If it weren't for DPR I would not be in this mess. I never had a problem with gear syndrome until I started coming here and reading the rave reviews for all cameras. Why have you done this to me? What have I done to you?
I think the least you could do is give ma a 50% discount on my next purchase. :)

How cool to be able to review these cameras. I am in Thailand. Wow, to get paid to test these would be reet.

Looks like a good camera to use with the new Sigma lenses?

I have never owned a Lieca. But isn't that a little pricey for a point and shoot?

On Just Posted: Pentax K-5 II / K-5 IIS Review news story (268 comments in total)

By today's standards these cameras are extremely cheap. I see new ones going for 780-900 dollars. Which makes it a good deal if AF was fixed. I had the old K-5 and it was awful. And that is being kind. I would plop down that much money in a heart beat if I thought it was a big improvement to the original. But everyone I have talked to said save my money? For the kind of photography I like anyway. As a consequence I am selling all my Pentax gear. Just a shame to wast such good Sigma glass on a poor performing camera.

On Is this the new Leica 'Mini M'? news story (370 comments in total)

You know I have never even considered Leica. I am fixing to travel some. Is the lens better than the top L lenses from Canon? Is the camera better than a top body from Canon. I know it will be smaller. I was thinking the Sigma 35 mm lens
with Canon gear. But this price range is ok with me if a superior product? Does anyone shoot with both systems?

I like it. I gives me a broader view of the content. And I have already deleted pics that do not really look right there. So, have to wait and see. But for now I think it is fine.

On 10 Photo Editing Programs (that aren't Photoshop) news story (450 comments in total)

I think for most folks like me and millions of others, photography is a serious hobby. PS is really not necessary. I am so glad I learned on PS. Now I am finding I can switch much easier.
So! Really thanks PS
But! No thanks PS.

It's not for me at this point. But, if I start traveling allot again. It might be? And the new Canon lenses are insanely good. Just a joy to use.
If you could pair a good crop sensor body with it??? hint hint Canon. That matched up with this beauty, then Wow...

Who cares. I urge users to look elsewhere. I am, and have found support from others. I predict DXo and others to fill the gap extremely fast.

On Adobe publicly confirms stand-alone future for Lightroom news story (615 comments in total)

I personally do not have any use for them now. Great program, but without support and availability it is useless to me. Availability not associated with the cloud that is.
Just not interested.

Direct link | Posted on May 16, 2013 at 05:56 UTC as 108th comment

Really nothing. I will switch. Not a problem for a hobby photographer. Have fun in the cloud. I am keeping my money and feet firmly planted on the ground.

garyknrd: Has anyone used Photoline? Since this pay by the month does not interest me I searched and found this.
Sounds promising.

I mean download...LOL

I feel the same way Danny. I am a birding photographer as a hobby. And this looks very promising to me. Will check it out for sure.
