This lens is to large and heavy.It just does not fit the camera form factor.
If I want large and heavy I just stay with Canon or Nikon.
dharma108: Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?
Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?
Shooting action in raw often means missing the best actionshot due to bufferingspeed and less frames a second.Jpeg quality is great on this camera, why should you risk missing the picture for a little extra picturequality.Besides, you will only see the difference on very large prints, screens , certainly not on anything smaller.So no any anynewspaper will need raw , maybe the centerfold of a high quality paper would benefit from action shot in raw .(if you dont miss the shot)
Sports/action are not shot in raw but always in jpeg.Absolutely no use to shoot raw for action in dx
JDThomas: Instead of these over-priced "photography" bags I usually buy tactical military bags designed for weapons. They are highly padded, ultra-durable, and about 1/3 of the price that these photo bag companies charge.
I could buy these in bulk sell them at twice the price and still come in way under what these companies charge for a product of lesser quality.
Looks like a good bag made to lug around . Ad some padding and you are good to go.And yes the price is good/normal as well. Think Thank and others overcharge enormously for simple bags but they know that people like us like to overpay for expensive photo lenses and camera's so why not but a to expensive bag ? :)
" the Sony RX100, which bridges the gap between point-and-shoots and pro-quality digital SLRs."
