The Photo Ninja: You can pay for a lot of professionally printed photos for the price of this.

I just did, I have a net 70% on all my mated prints. I neted so far this year $11,000 on prints including ink, paper, mats, backing and bags. And not only do they sell but customers look for me at shows to buy more. So my math works. FYI thats part time work.

There are a lot of photographers that prints and sell 100's of prints a year, people tend to forget the pro who actually make money from photography and prints. Open your mind past the walls of your house.

otto k: No external storage is quite a limitation, transferring a days worth of shooting to some cloud provider and back takes way too much time to be useful.

So anyone that uses pro equipment like a 1DX or Nikon D4 is out of luck with our CF cards. On a regular wildlife shoot be it in the US, Africa, Canada or South America I can generate 2 to 3,000 25 MB raw files, so what good is an Ipad. When one does this stuff for a living you make 2 copies of every shot you make. I use the original Surface pro with a Lexar workflow equiped with CF card reader and 2 528 GB solid state units. As they are downloaded from the card they are written to 2 SSD units at the same time. There is no real need for editing on the road in my world. Not to mention the cloud is still a non existent item in some areas of Africa. When talking using the Ipad Pro as a professional tool your for photography its like brining a sling shot to a gun fight :)

J A C S: The right hand side is soft.

I for one am not at all impressed, the blue sky is full of noise. the rocks are soft and at 100% you can see a purple line between the mountain and the sky. I doubt tha camera is this bad.

falconeyes: IMHO, there is something wrong with the US national park concept.

Compared to, e,g., Europe, the Alps in particular,, only a fraction of the US is preserved for giving priority to nature. No signs to restrict building activities outside national parks. So it seems to Europeans. Where are all the opportunities to hike and spend time in nature, outside nat. parks? And why is access to nat. parks restricted and costing money. It shouldn't. It is just nature. The US is so sparsely populated compared to Europe that it seems almost absurd. And to restrict photography of US nature certainly IS absurd.

They are refering to the National Forest Servise NOT the National Park Service. This has nothing to do with National Parks at all. Thye National Park Service is part of the Department of Interior, The National Forest Service is under the Department of Agriculture.

lglass12189: Even though you say he used a variety of lens, he states the test was done with a Nikon lens on both cameras "For this test I used the same Nikon 80-200 f2.8 AFD lens with both cameras". Why not nikon on nikon and canon on canon? It becomes a skewed test in my book.

Not really his explaination dosen't hold water, First if you own Canon you will shoot with the canon lens you own, not go buy a Nikon. And second he is making an assumption that that the Nikon lens is optically designed to work with canon.
