This is about security. How else can a corrupt government protect its corruption from public scrutiny? Shame on those pictures for showing the truth.

Judging by the number of images, someone likes this lens very much. ;)

Alex Permit: With the fall of the inluencers, there has been the rise of the micro-influencers..Instagram influencers with 10,000 to 100,000 followers. But they too shall fall to the nano influencers.

Seems we are coming to the day when adverstisers will just pay individuals who are personally in the market and are about to make a purchase. Coming full circle, they will discover the power of using their marketing budget towards discounting the price.

Indeed. There's nothing more attractive when shopping than a good discount. If I see good value-for-money, I'm in.

Pritzl: So does the 80D support Exposure Compensation in manual mode + auto-ISO now? I thought I saw something to that effect in the manual but I can't access it today for some reason.

Thanks. Interesting that Canon finally caved on that front. Time to hawk my 70D.

Pritzl: <pedantic mode>On page 1, it's either top + increased or minimum + decreased for shutter speed. As written it appears at first blush that the "top" speed worsened by "decreasing" to 1/2000s.</pedantic mode>

Forgot the emoticons: :P :P :P :D

Feeling the love.. :)

Wow! The Nikon mafia must be really powerful to elicit such a protracted apology at the end of the article.

Seriously though, if you want to date yourself, how about a bic pen being an integral part of your data drive's seek mechanism?

In reply to:

Pritzl: $1100 for an f1.8 telephoto zoom? Seriously? If it's anything like the 18-35 I will be sorely tempted.

I think that will be my biggest hurdle; I can't think of anything I usually shoot at that focal length that requires F/1.8. Then again, it would make an absolutely beautiful portrait lens and pairs great with my 18-35.

I think it will come down to my tax return; fat cheque = new Sigma, fingers crossed.

In reply to:

BaltimorePhotog: I like the 18-35 as a walkaround on my 7D - and love the 50 and 35 Art on my 5D MK III - but don't really see the need for the 50-100. It sounds great - but I can't see replacing my Canon 70-200 2.8 - although that fast 1.8 is tempting. Maybe a market for APS-C users who don't currently own the pricey 70-200? Now bring on an 85 Art.

It's a hard sell if you already have a good, fast telephoto. Sure it's f1.8 but the 70-200 has IS, and it's longer. Of course it's also heavier and twice the price. Tough choice any way you slice it.

Nice hardware improvements. Wonder if there are any more in the sensor/software department?

On article X-Factor: Canon's EOS-1D X Mark II examined in-depth (617 comments in total)

What are the odds that the on-chip A/D converter will trickle down the Canon line-up? On the one hand, Canon have the annoying habit of artificially differentiating their product lines. On the other, they were so far behind the curve on this aspect one would assume there is significant pressure to equip all of their future DSLRs with it. Thoughts?

In reply to:

Pritzl: It will be interesting to see which models get retrofitted with this. It would illuminate how Sony feel about their cameras; valuable tools or expendable toys?

When there is a hardware improvement, paying to play is understandable. However, a firmware upgrade, esp. one that fixes a documented issue, really should be free of charge to all affected models. I would argue that Fuji's Kaizen attitude where new, free firmware, sometimes for discontinued models, that actually add new features is even better; even for the manufacturer.

Like I said, though, we'll have to wait and see.
