On Accessory Review: Manfrotto 294 Carbon Fiber Tripod article (50 comments in total)

'If there's one single thing that Manfrotto is known for, it's quality tripods...'
I like to disagree. I worked with some Manfrottos and tried some of the newer models of the 'usual suspects' (aka MA 190, MA 055, ect). Manfrotto tripods are not really good quality or sturdy enough for a DSLR and lenses like 70-200/2,8 for instance.
Compared to real quality tripods Manfrottos are cheaply made and too wobbly.

Marc S: Just to mention it:
A Nikkor 'D' lens only relays the distance of focus to the camera. Its a variant of the Nikon F mount and says nothing about the quality or price of a given lens and is in no way comparable to a Canon 'L' lens.
If you are setting rules, you should know what you are talking about...

>Not really. As far as I know, the "D" has nothing to do with distance.

Then you don't know much about Nikon lenses.
The distance information a 'D' Nikkor relays to the camera, is in 99% the only difference between most Nikkor AF and AF-D lenses. :))

> D lenses are older than G, D has aperture rings, G has not and the G lenses are better coated and better handle CA. That's about all.

Right about aperture ring, SOME G-Nikkors have better coating simply because they where designed a decade or more later, but I wouldn't bet at all on the CA issue.

On Nikon D1: A Cunning and Most Feline Thing article (16 comments in total)

If I remember correctly, there was a brief period after the introduction of the D1h where you could get Nikon Service to update the D1 firmware to D1h firmware (or D1h-like-firmware). I could swear a friend had it done on his D1.
