Thorgrem: The 400mm isn't a L type? And therefore lacks the red ring?
I wonder how well this lens will work for aviation photography. Will it AF as fast as the 500 f4 II, or the 300 f2.8 II ? How well will it work with the 1.4xIII ? Can the AF keep up with fast flying aircraft? So many questions, looking forward to user reviews.
racketman: 300-600mm zoom would be nice for birders who mostly only use the long end of these tele zooms anyway.
We already have the 200-400 that goes to 560 with the internal tc engaged.
But you probably mean a lens that most people can afford.
NISSIM COHEN NESSE: i have this lens on my canon 1dx, and on my sony 7r,and it is truly remarkable i got amazing pic ,and the more i used it ,the more i love it.
Do you have image samples or a gallery to share?
Is it worth it?
I mean, is this VW bug worth $750?
I won't form an opinion until I read Ken Rockwell's review.
retro76: Microsoft is dead, the future is google and apple. Trust me, I don't hate Microsoft, in fact I was quite a fan boy back in the day (but hell I also liked cassette tapes at one time too). If you haven't graduated to Apple/Google hardware/software by now your simply living in the past, and it may sound cocky, but that's the raw honest truth.
Desk top computing? People still do that?
djrocks66: Love the Fro and his show. This is a great video for those that are trying to learn flash photography.
The fro is like a young, hip Ken Rockwell.
BigBen08: Apple's memory pricing is still pretty steep. Going from 16GB to 128GB will cost you $300.
Well said, halc.
My guess is that Apple wants people to use their Cloud, so perhaps they will never include a memory card.
I'm torn between the ipad Air and the Samsung 10.1 Note 2014 edition. Since I'll be loading the tablet with photos, video and lots of docs (pdf), having removable memory is a benefit. If not for that, I'd lean towards the ipad Air.

BigBen08: Let's not forget the new Samsung 10.1 2014 edition...
I like the Surface Pro 2, but I believe the Samsung 10.1 2014 has a higher resolution screen. As a photo viewer, the Samsung might win out.

Plastek: There are only 2 real, serious choices for photographers right now when it comes to tablets:- iPad- Surface ProEverything else is a waste of money that could be better spent in either of these two devices.
Might want to consider the new Samsung 10.1 2014 edition. 2560x1600 display.
mcshan: That ugly Wi-Fi sticker would be the first thing to go. Makes the camera look cheap.

Some of the same images have been Featured Pictures on Wikipedia starting July 2007, being on the front page in November 2007, February and November 2008.
The last one is a digitally retouched version.
So yes, it's a story that's been bumped about the internet news outlets for at least the past six years.
Glad they bumped it again.
Right on, halc.
Josh152: Wow so basically flickr went and copied the look and feel of 500PX.
The large image size in my Photostream takes longer to download, and I can't see the number of views or comments for each photo at a glance. I like the old format better. I wish I had the option of going back.
Mssimo: If your shopping for monitors, make sure you buy a IPS panel. The other common type that is very bad for color and view angle is called TN.
Dell Ultrasharp monitors use LG panels; these are the same panels used in apple's best monitors. They are also used by HP pro line monitors.
I have two U3011's. (decoded name: Ultrasharp 30" 2011) They are huge. The 27" has more pixel density but its 16:9 (Less Height than 16:10; 2560x1600 vs 2560x1440)
@dbateman: thanks for the info.
So which is better for photography, ISP or LG panels?
Think Tank makes great bags. Looking foward to seeing this in person.
C'mon Apple, bring back the Kodak Instamatic.
