TriezeA72: If your country was under attack, would you be sitting in a laid back position with feet up on the desk? all that was missing was a bowl of pretzels and some root beer

Yeah. And reading Mary had a little Lamb up-side down at that school...

bakhtyar kurdi: I am really sad about the 3000 victims, they where from all kinds of background (except one).
But no one talking about 1,000,000 victims from Iraq, my country, and turning it to most dangerous country on the planet , to the moment.
the most stupid thing is to say Saddam was supporting Usama, but the reality was Saddam was hanging anyone who even say a good word about them, Saddam was bad, but his relation with Alqaida is a stupid jock.
So why you attacked Iraq? No body knows to my knowledge
What was the relation between Afghanistan and Iraq?
Now just recently, according to agreements between western countries and Turkey, they started attacking Kurdish troops, the only nation on the planet that really fighting Isis? do you believe that?why?the same old reason, to make Isis live longer, and sell more weapons.
Just to add, the real reason about Afghanistan war was the shortage of drugs to America, according to a report from UN just a few days before the attack, Taliban destroyed it 100%.

USA occupied Iceland well before Pearl Harbour, the 7/12 of 1941...
Is that not a peculiar behaviour?
The occupation began 16 june 1941 and was a help to the Brits who invaded Iceland 10 of May 1941.

Interesting. A lot of the people look relaxed in postures but a bit tense in the face. Cheney looks detached or just contemplating something.
Perhaps how the Administration now could exploit the situation:
Patriot Act was launched as a draft just 8 days(!) later...
Which country to invade first, and second and third...
Or how Halliburton would be given no-bid contracts worth 7 Billions $ in the future in a destroyed Iraq state?

The pics are carefully chosen - no doubt.

Very interesting that there are no computers turned-on in this situation - just a couples of phones. Doesnt look like they are managing at all.

CameraLabTester: How can you trust a company who abandons platforms, instead of improving it?

.

MS is a Company from h--l.
They throwed out Windows Vista, replacing the venereable XP. Vista is the worst ever operative.
Then came 7 , the new XP, but was replaced by another junk-operative.
With Win10 you are obliged to have an Microsoft ID and therefore more trackable then ever.

Anyone surprised?
You cant thrust on any of the big Companys, especially not Microsoft who took away Photosynth or Google.
Next up will be Dropbox announcing a 300% price rise...

In reply to:

Sonylover1: Long time user of Sony (F828, R1, Nex7, Rx100) and Canon (T90, 40D, 7D, 1DsIII) I am more and more impressed by Nikon 810 and the latest development by Sony.

Canon 5D S or R, little difference, both need AAfilter are no match for Nikon 810. And we havent seen Sony A7RII yet! Disappointed.

Canon have the best Lenslineup beside Nikon. They should open up for cooperation with Sony and admit use of their lensring.
The best of both world and Canonlenses would flood the market.

I am in love with my Canons but as a Sonylover I cant dream of a more innovative manufacturer than Sony.

Narrow minded or not. It was my statement in a short commentary. Dont expect a comprehensive analyze.
All modern cameras are wonderful tools - the shortcomings is on the photographer. D810 has been tested - its a real killer.
Canon dont do any quantumleaps - other does.

Another setback for Canon.
They are loosing on all fronts now.
Exept on Telelenses.

Cant figure why they didnt replace the 20Da.

Sonylover1: Double the cost to A7?
Iso 6400?

I'd rather stick to my 7D.

Canon is not on the road again. Sadly.

@LukeKaven
50 Mp is impressive. No doubt.
But iso 6400 is depressing - they are lagging behind Sony.
And a 7D II is half price compared to this 5 D.

In reply to:

Sonylover1: Comic.
800E looks better - and less moire.
Sony A7R kicks them both.
End of story.

If I had Sony A7R sensor in my old trustworthy Canon 7D I could go on for 10 years still to come. The 7D is my all-favourite for action-photo.
My RX100 for street.

I think you shouldnt by a new camera more than 2 times in a decade.

@EricCul and HFLM.
This was a spontaneus comment after an extensive analyse of the DP testchart.
My point is that 810 isnt THAT good so you throw your 800E and the A7R over board. IT has other advantages.
D200 was a major step from D70 as was D700 over D200.
The D90 and D300(s) wasnt a Giant leap.
Canon 30D, 7D and 5DIII plays out all the other versions.

Sony did a smart thing - on the same platform releasing 3(!) different cameras - two of them extreme in their respective usage.

P.S I am to old to be a fan boy.

On Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lab Test Review preview (254 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sonylover1: Tammy looks VERY nice on a 5D III with f8 on 600 mm.
Compare it with Canon 200-400 with 1,4 extender at 560 mm f8.
It is not a 10x times difference as of price...

DP must have a crappy 100-400 copy.
The 100-400 at infinity or long range is superior in comparasion to many other zooms/ cheap fixed lenses.

I have "stalked" everything written and published about the Tamron 150-600. I am impressed of what I see and I think you could do nothing wrong with this lens. If you have some newer camera then its no issue with "struggling AF" either.

Look at
http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2014/01/tamron-150-600-telezoom-shootout#more-17144
and
http://www.lenstip.com/403.4-Lens_review-Tamron_SP_150-600_mm_f_5-6.3_Di_VC_USD_Image_resolution.html

You see that Tamron is as good as 400 mm wide open stopped down to F 8,0 at 600mm. Therefore Lensrentals graph is a bit misleading because they only show 600 mm wide open.
It is absolutely a Bargain.

And yes, I think its better than my Sigma 120-300 with 2.0x TC but I can add that I have made some tremendous sharpening in Lightroom on pics taken with that combo. Could I choose today I would buy the Tamron however.

You can get shoots sharp at all focals with changes on the Microadjustment but in the "heat" you dont start to change it.
An example without Extender:
F 2.8
20 meter: MA -3, 100 meter: MA -5. Infinty: MA -5
F 4.0
20 meter: MA +2, 100 meter: MA 0, Infinity: MA -3
F 5.6
20 meter: MA 0, and the same for the other ranges.

In between you have F 3.2 and 4.5 and they also need some different MA.
So I have decided for fixed MA depending on or without Extenders, Canon 7D has good memory...and just keep in mind witch F to use for best result

Hi Higuel.
The 120-300 is a very competent lens.
With 1.4x you get splendid sharpness at 5.6 - on par or better than Canon 100-400 at 400mm/5.6. But if you try it wide open at 4.0 it will be soft.
The 2.0x extender is more difficult. You can get good sharpness at 7.1 but to be sure you have to use 9.0 or 11.0.
It has something to do with the MicroAF you need with the Sigmalens.
I have been conducting extensive testing on all focals with and without extenders at range 20m, 100m and "infinity".
Sharpest on all ranges is it bare at 5.6 MA=0, 1.4x at 5.6 with MA=-5 and 2.0x at 9.0 with MA=+ 5.

Indeed.
Sigma had a 100-300/4 which a used until I bought Canon 100-400. They could scale it up to a 300-600/5.6 and I will buy it for 6-7 K.
The Sigma 120-300/2.8 I have is very sharp but as soon as you put an extender on it you must give up F-steps, 420mm at 5.6 and 600mm at 9.0. Therefore a short FL 300-600/5.6 would be a Killer.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1509 comments in total)

I voted for RX100 although it is NOT the best camera 2012. Nikon D800E is probably the "best" camera.
The poll is wrongly done when you compare DSLR with fixed lens and fixed zoomlens small cameras. Better to polll most " innovative" or like.

I have used RX100 for three months and find it very competetive compared to my 7D at wide angle and in low-light. It is my choice for best Compact!
