And a lot of people complaining that the new Rebels do have had a good enough sensor! And yet the challange is won by a saw edged resolution photo and not a D4S or 1DX. Shows that the photographer is much more important than the camera. Just MHO.
Chuck_IV: People are being a bit rough on this camera, but I understand why. I think it's in the WRONG price point.
I bought the T6s(along with the 18-135 lens) and really liked it. The new sensor gave me some great pics and better movies(over my SL1). It also had some nice features.
However, after doing some thinking on how much I just spent for this and its feature set, I couldn't get past the issue that the 70D was just $100 more and offered, from what I saw as so much more. Yes, I lost 4MP and a little better size factor, but you don't need to look hard for what more you get with the 70D over the T6s. I now have a 70D and couldn't be happier.
I think Canon blew it with the price points. If Canon knew they were going to drop the 70D price point, then IMO the T6s should have started at $150-$200 LESS than it is now. This would have given it a better separation from the newly lowered pricing of the 70D.
Very well said!! But the market still looks for more Megapixels, and who is in business knows that!
Thanks Ruth for your comments! It is in fact a pomegranate tree, and I doubt if it actually eats it or not. These are very common here, so you can capture them often.Gordon.
gordzam: Nice shot! And also shows that the Tamron 150-600 can perform quite well full open at nearly 600mm, and I'm glad as I own it as well. Test would let you believe that it's not that good. Congratulations cmantx!
Yes I had the 200-500mm before, but is one is noticably better. Also focuses better at longer focal lengths. Regards.

It's a cabbage which is not a flower!
Is there really a 43mm prime?
RuthC: The embedded EXIF data indicates that this photo was taken on September 6th 2007.
Yes, I copied the slide with a slide copier on my Digital Rebel, and the exif is from that file. (I got better results than my slide scanner.)
According to someone on a dedicated macro photography forum, it is a Plexyppus paykulli adult male. Thank you for your positive comments.
Thank you very much for all the comments and votes! I really did not imagine I could place 1st as there were so many beautiful shots. I used a ring flash to fill in the shadows but mainly it's ambient lighting.
May have impressive test results, but I'm not particularly impressed by the real life images posted here.
Thanks for your comment! I thought I'd do better with this one, but that's voting...
It's an F/A-18E with the square intakes ;-)
Ian: Hell 1997 we saw the release of the Nikon Coolpix 100, I remember it well, dealers were frightened by the thought of digital cameras, now look.Nikon had also released some years before the Nikon E2 and E3 what a Dinosaurs they were fantastic era, but my how technology has moved on. The E2 and E3 took PCMCA cards, that were hellishly expensive at about £12 per meg, so a 64 mb card was really expensive. The camera took Nikon MF lenses, it was just very slow to download images.Canon were really no where at this time..
Check Canon Here in 1996:
It's close to supersonic, but it's not! It might have made a very bad effect on you and your gear if it was. Nice capture.
Thanks for the link! I hope the neighbors don't get too concerned....And well done for the challenge, and the other photos.
Yes, it would be interesting to see the setup. Thanks!
Nice image, but surely manipulated, as the bright sunlight on the sea surface clearly shows that it's a daytime shot!
