Adam2: Classic liberal socialism. Thank G-d I live in the U.S., though this country is quickly becoming like Europe.

It's peopleism. People are greedy and crooked.

Apart from isms, it's a collaboration of greedy vested interests and rotten politicians. Somebody called this "crony capitalism."

It's not socialism. Socialism is worse by a krillion orders of magnitude.

KrisAK: What about landscape architects? Are their works protected?

Who speaks for the trees?

Trees have the right tp sue. So do fire hydrants, earthworms, distant planets, etc.

Are we supposed to just grok how these things work? The Manfrotto website is mystifying.

I know, they sell themselves.

That's actually a GREAT CONCEPT!

I hope it picks up steam. It could spark a minor revolution in telephoto photography. Maybe even a major one.

sh10453: Been a Canon guy since the A1, late 70s, have since purchased at least 2 dozen Canon pro cameras, including FF DSLR's.
I am ready to say goodbye Canon, & hello Sony.
No native VF is a deal breaker for me.
I can't follow a fast bird at 600mm looking at a screen on a bright sunny day!
$250 for the VF?
1 f/s RAW?
3 f/s?
It's a shame that Canon is sleeping.
A crippled camera with a large sensor is very limiting, although it's fine for those who will use it indoors for portraits)!
For a smaller, pocket size one, I opt for the Panasonic DMC-LF1. I love the view finder on this tiny camera, and it has Wi-Fi, NFC, etc. as well, at the price of the Canon VF.
For a 25-600mm, I'll opt for the Pana FZ200, f/2.8 all the way to 600mm Leica lens, and 12 f/s, although at a much smaller sensor.

Here is a recent sample photo using the LF1, reduced in size and resolution for the web (from a few days ago; notice the caption):

Dear sh10453,

Thanks for telling us about your experience.

PCMag gave it their Editor's Choice Award and had this to say--

Sharp images. Excellent EVF. When you consider the Panasonic's Raw shooting capability and fixed f/2.8 lens you have a camera that is capable of capturing excellent images in a wide variety of lighting conditions. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 is the best-performing superzoom we've tested. Review Date October 18, 2012.

SmilerGrogan: You guys are missing what's wrong with this picture....Give up? No foreground interest. What is there in the main part of the picture that's beautiful, striking, or otherwise worth looking at?

Weeel, I allows it has background interest.

In reply to:

munro harrap: THe shutter lag prefocussed that most of us use all the time, on a Sony A7R is,
wait for it, ONE SIXTH of A SECOND.

Rishi and Barney have not said a word about this most important factor. Anybody with a Nex6 or 7, or a new a5000 or a6000, has a totally different deal- they have about the fastest responding cameras out there- as have A7 owners, but I for one am NOT committing financial suicide only to lose any possibility of ME being the one who decides when the picture is taken thankyou.

And it has zero protection against water falling from the sky, or a glass of beer.
Even in Japan it rains....

This is to me a bombshell.

BOMBSHELL, folks.

All of this has sharpened my appetite for an a6000 -- $700 with 16-50 at C---------d, $550 on e---! The 16-70mm f/4 is $750 on e---.

In reply to:

probert500: To say the a7r is "plagued" with shutter shock is untrue.

I'm with you, Reesh.

Maybe you should've said "bedeviled." Wait, that would've offended the devil-worshipers.

Wait for eruption.

AngularJS: That's funny the A7r2 is not even out yet, but 15 people already own it!

Haw haw!

Software should've detected that.

Reflects badly on our comment community.

Dave Oddie: I don't understand this article appearing on DPR.

Why is there an article that speculates about the dynamic range possibly being greater and that BSI may well be appropriate despite the larger sensor etc?

Why not just wait until you have reviewed it and tell us the facts?

Seems rather pointless to me.

Light leaks?! LIGHT LEAKS ARE THE ULTIMATE FOUL-UP.

Specify please -- which model had the light leaks?

Yes, crappy RAW and shutter blur are AWFUL.

How about the a6000? Do they have any lenses for it yet?
