  • Mike - I hear ya.  It's a tough problem.  On one hand there is your notion that if you provide the capability the people that desire it and are willing to spend a lot of $$$$ will come into the fold. ...
  • Dave - I don't think it's much of a surprise that continuous focus performance has lagged for so long in Pentax.  First, because it's complicated.  There are so many variables and so many ...
  • I currently use a Canon 5dIII as my primary ILC.
  • There really is very limited viable business model for camera shops.  The high end consumer very often knows what they want and simply buys on-line to get the best price.  The best "business ...
  • Replied in please answer
    I believe I am contributing.  And since others have "liked" my posts, they must agree.  The contribution is:  trying to label a given camera as the "best aps-c" or "best pro camera for price" is a ...
  • Replied in please answer
    Joe - I simply find it interesting and amusing that supposed adults are so worried about "their" camera brand's camera being considered "the best".  So much so they get into arguments on forums ...
  • Replied in please answer
    Why is this concept important to you?  I never could understand this fanaticism within DPR posters in particular.  Why is it important whether you can apply the "best crop sensor DSLR" on something? ...
  • Karl, if 2 plus 2 can equal 5, then 1 plus 1 plus 1 can equal 2.  Please get with the program :)
  • Replied in two categories
    First, let me say, I'm happy with the 5dIII I'm using so I wasn't a potential buyer of anything the 7dII was. BUT, from what I read I would put the negative people in three categories: Category 1:  ...
  • It depends on what you expect the "more advanced camera" to deliver.  What exactly are you shooting, and what is it about your current gear that is letting you down?  Buying a new camera is fun ...
  • Replied in agreed
    I agree - there is plenty to focus on in the frame and you can see nothing is in focus.  Macro is a tough thing to shoot that way - that minimum focus distance advantage is what makes macro lenses ...
  • When I contacted sigma last month to ask them why they discontinued the 70-200 2.8 in Sigma mount, here was the response: "Good morning, We don’t know the exact reason why our parent company ...
  • I think you overstate the demand for 4k.  There simply aren't that many display devices yet that support 4k.  It is still very much a niche and will be for several years.  AF improvements for ...
  • Replied in Is that all?
    It's all a matter of prioritization.  No company on the market does everything better than everyone else.  Canon has prioritized introductory full frame - 6d, the dual pixel sensor for improved ...
  • I read in a secondary post from the OP here that you basically would prefer better ISO performance so you could use a higher shutter speed.  That would certainly be beneficial.  Using 1/200 here ...
  • Replied in additionally
    you need to evaluate foreground and background elements - and decide WHEN they add to the story and when they distract from it.  These images have a lot of both foreground and background elements ...
  • Replied in exactly
    Look, it's not about legality.  Legally, you can take pictures of their kids outside because there is no expectation of privacy.  It's about dealing with people.  Parents are concerned for their ...
  • It isn't about being "scared" - it's about being a profitable business.  Not too many companies in the ILC business have had the profitability track record of Canon.  But, if it makes you feel ...
  • Replied in question
    Based on what I see from Canon's pricing behavior - I could see such a camera having a $2700 price tag.  While I get some people might disagree with my assertion, if it is correct, would you pay ...
  • Replied in my view
    It's simple.  The "craze" is driven by the social media phenomenon to have a constant stream of content.  Many people don't really have much to say.  They don't have a creative eye for taking ...
