The Tamron 150-600 deserves to be on this list. The guys at The Camera Store put it in their top three for 2014, and here it's not even an option for the top 13? Seems like a curious omission.
I don't mind the rock on the left side, but the exposed sand is a little distracting. All in all, though, still a beautiful shot. Excellent processing, too. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful images. I especially like #4.
A beautiful scene captured brilliantly. Very well done.
That 300mm is a monster. It's too bad Samsung cancelled the 70-400 that used to be on their roadmap.
Prairie Pal: 6 identical pictures of kids pointing weapons with the same unbelievable "green-screen" open mouth expressions, and fanged monsters added in post. I wouldn't say this is a new DPreview low, but really don't you have better things to with your time than repost crap like this? Don't you have camera reviews to catch up on? Looking at this is like Canadian Tire money; the second after you exit the store you throw it away.
Saying it's not to your taste is one thing; calling it crap and comparing it to looking at Canadian Tire money is just a little over the top. It's possible to be critical and have class at the same time.
Very creative and nicely executed, though not my cuppa tea.
Kurt_K: Some folks here may be scoffing at the alarmists, but I think wildlife photographers are going to need to have a very serious discussion about the ethics of using drones in their work. And I think that those who can't see the potential impact of drones on wildlife are either very naive or very short-sighted, or perhaps both.
So the onus should be on the intelligent to prove the obvious to the naive? Are you sure that's the kind of world you want to live in?
RichRMA: Did a liberal ever live who didn't want to ban, regulate, prohibit, control, oversee, observe, meddle with EVERYTHING IN SIGHT?
So drones are a liberal vs. conservative issue now? Really?

Photography based on fun and creativity. Who'd have thunk it?
Thanks but no thanks, Tamron. I would love to see some third party interest in the micro four thirds camp (long zoom anyone?), but not if it's just going to be more slow lenses covering the same old ground.
I don't know why they would add 5-axis stabilization and still withhold the option of shooting RAW. Seems like a big missed opportunity.
I keep reading about how great IQ is on this and other Fuji bodies, but I'm just not seeing it in the samples I've looked at. To my eyes it appears that Fuji is applying too much NR to its raw files, which I think is the reason for the watercolor look some people have already complained about. And given the fact that there isn't a DXO-style test for x-trans sensor performance, I think it's going to be hard for anyone to prove that Fuji isn't cooking their raws. I personally don't own any of the new trendy cameras, so it's not like I have a dog in this fight. I'm just calling it as I see it.
ozimax: Astonishing images. And just think, it took a Creator God to make these impossibly complex animals. He not only makes things work, He makes them beautiful at the same time.
Kudos to the photographer.
Well, it wouldn't have bothered me if he hadn't said "Kudos to god, who cares about photographer..." That's kind of disrespectful, too, no? Especially given that this article is *about* the photographer and his work. Thank you so much for the lecture, though; I do feel properly chastened. ;-)
How about we just leave "god" out of this. The article is about a photographer and his photography.
These are amazing. True works of art.
A wonderful set of photographs. Makes me nostalgic for my own childhood.
Their strategy, as far as I can tell, is to fleece those who want a mirrorless system, but are too brand-loyal to look at anything that doesn't say Nikon on the front.
The 70-300 is an interesting lens, but not at a thousand dollars.
