Nathaniel George Weir: Why does everyone complain complain complain complain in the comments at DPreview? Seriously this is free information for all of us. If you don’t like how they present the article then just move on about your life. I honestly value the comments section in DPreview, but part of the reason I haven't been coming to DPreview is because I’ve become sick of all of the negative comments and feedback from people who have nothing else better to do or say. I understand that DPreview moderators listen to the people in the comments section. But please people:
“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all"

Yes! Great thinking, instead of DPreview moderators taking control of what gets seen and what gets hidden, the people can be in charge of that. That way no one gets upset that the moderators are trying to manipulate the comments.

Canon makes better lenses than Nikon, and if you don't agree with me, then check out SLRGear.com and the Digital Picture's "ISO crops" and then compare Canon and Nikon glass. You shall see that Canon lenses are consistently sharper and have less CA.

ZAnton: Please, correct the name
"F4.5.6 G SSM" to "F4-5.6 G SSM"
Concerning lenses: Sony sells non IS lenses at the price of Canon/Nikon IS/VR lenses. Inbody IS gives at best - 2 stop, usually 0,5-1 Stop, whereas optical IS - at least 3 stop. So I don't think it is wise to get Sony at least at current prices.

Oh yeah image stabilization definitely reduces maximum aperture. That's why when canon releases IS versions of their lenses like the 70-200mm they have such smaller maximum apertures. Think for less than 5 seconds about that comment. And with all this flack on how image stabilization reduces corner sharpness. Name a working professional who gives a crap about how the corner sharpness of their photo is reduced when they use IS. It is so irrelevant to people who actually count on their lenses to make money.

On World Press Photo announces 2013 contest winners news story (298 comments in total)
In reply to:

califleftyb: You must understand the context of Paul Hansen's photo and how it was taken. First of all Hansen was not alone in the street and encountered this funeral, rather there was a mob of photographers collected together and the funeral procession arranged and then directed toward the photographers - that is how it worked in Gaza, photographers are not "free agents" wandering alone, they have Hamas "minders" who strictly control the situation. That is also the reason Hansen was using a 16mm lens, and why there are multiple light sources.

If you doubt this then you don't understand the competitive world of international news photography. Read this story critical of Hansen and the mob of photographers that create these types of images for "emotional content" that may or may not necessarily exist. Google prisonphotography.org +brouhaha +"paul hansen" (warning for content) you will understand how this Gaza shot was taken, and why it is more propaganda then news.

@califletyb I'm assuming by the way you are reacting that you have much maturing to do. Don't worry, you can do it, for I have faith in you.

And yet it still doesn't have a pop-up flash... Useless... And it probably has no built in pop-art filters either :/

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1044 comments in total)

Would you choose this camera over the 4 year-old 5D Mark II (today is 4th anniversary)? And what price do you think this camera should have been?
I personally believe $1500 would be appropriate. And I think Canon should come out soon with the 6DX with an added burst rate, better AF system, 100% viewfinder, auto LCD brightness adjustment, and at least 1 CF slot.

Nathaniel George Weir: 200-3200 ISO Range with 6400 Boost (according to specs sheet) haha give me a break! I'll stick with my 5D Mark III thank you very much.

from Dpreview stats table 200-3200 ISO probably the higher and lower ISOs boosts

wow... What would've been truly epic is if they made that sensor 2 megapixels for ridiculously lowlight video.
