Not many.

Don Sata: The lens is too big, what's the point of making a fixed focal length compact with that huge lens?

Agree.
When I first saw it, I thought it was a zoom.

flyingRug: could imagine this being used for fishing

You mean like a fish-finder tool?

20 bucks per iPhone. I wonder how much each sensor costs Sony.

On Canon drops prices on 31 high-end L lenses article (58 comments in total)

Isn't this the 2nd lens price drop in recent memory?
No price drop for the new 400 DO II ?

Gee, the 200-400 is looking a bit more attractive.

In reply to:

mrcultureshock: I know esthetics are of little importance vs the performance, but this is an ugly little compact camera. Nikon should copy what Panasonic is doing with styling and 4K capabilities.

Have to agree it is a bit on the ugly side.

In reply to:

justmeMN: Am I the only one who thinks that the kit lens looks strange? I thought that the front of a lens was supposed to be round glass, and mostly glass, not mostly metal.

I had to take a second look when I saw it. Unusual indeed.
But maybe from a technical viewpoint it has advantages.

"We understand that there are currently no plans to bring the camera to market in America."

I don't understand this, can some one explain?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: Real-world samples (beta) article (268 comments in total)
In reply to:

Canon2: Are the gallery pictures JPEGs straight out of the camera? Or RAW-files converted to JPEG in camera? In computer? Picture style Standard? Sharpness zero? No PP what so ever? If we don't know basic data other then lens used and ISO settings, the pictures really tell you nothing about what the camera can do. Sorry guys if the information is there, and I just missed it.

Please excuse my ignorance, but why can't raw files be made available, say via dropbox?

In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

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?
