IMO, which means nothing to Nikon for sure. No one likes to be forced into anything. Look at the CC issues. I would also buy the Nikon batteries. But hate to be told or forced to do something.

I have a friend that uses the Samsung S3. And uses it instead of a dslr now most of the time. Many shots quite good for the internet.

Curious when the Canon 500 II and 600 II will be added?
Thanks

Yep!! This is exactly what I have been waiting for. I read the share holder minutes when Ricoh bought Pentax. This was the target from day one. I am on board 100% now. I shoot Canon 7D and it is a dog period IMO this day and time. The sensor is just not there. Neither is the AF on the 7D. If this AF system is better then good bye 7D.I Will keep the Mark IV and move back to Pentax with my Sigma super telephoto lenses. The hell with Canon and the 7D. They promised a 7D II and never delivered. I will wait and get the results from good quality tests. If good I am back.

Hopefully I am going to start traveling again next month. I have been looking at small cameras. But when I see the sensor of the rx100 II against this or the gs15. Right now I think I am going with the Sony?

How about on the notebook or ultrabook front? Any good choices for photographers.

I hate to say it but I bet they sell like hot cakes.

You have a typo on your gear shop page. 3rd down from the top under Key Features.

As an amateur I used to buy a copy every few years. I just do not need the debt or the product that much. For a monthly bill.

Really a non starter for me. No RAW, some one spiked the cool aid in the R&D dept.

I bet that drone cannot run as fast as me if a lion or elephant was chasing it.

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.

Looking at that the G15 ls really an awesome camera indeed.As is the Pentax.

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. :)
