Good .. I see some Canon camera finally
jaykumarr: In very lowlight, in sequoia tree national park, the Nikon D5100s AF struggled for long time and failed to focus. My friend tried with the same D5100, but same result. My Panasonic FZ-150 focussed precisely after 2-3 seconds. I was very surprised how Nikon AF totally failed.
Now I see repeated praise 'focuses well in -3 low light'. Why there was no previous mention about the average performance before?
@Kim jakobsen,A DSLR not focussing was totally a surprise to me and my friend found it was my fault and teased me before he tried.
Now you gave explanation that it was normal. I did not know it was normal for a DSLR with its own brand lens (albeit kit lens) to fail in focussing while a bridge cam pass.
@nicolaiecostel,All I know is a $500++ Nikon Failed to focus with their own lens(prime or kit), and Panasonic FZ-150 properly focussed it. It happened repeatedly.Failure with their own lens.

very very good shot.
amazing.rich blend of knowledge and effort.
Karen Casebeer: My question is why this new lens doesn't have image stabilization?
in this kind of wide angle lens, the hand shakes are less likely. You can take 1/25 s, or 1/16 s shutter speeds without shaking it. So image stabilizaiton is not required.
So, Canon missed out 24MP in 7D MII ? anyway welcome T6 s.
tender, metallic colormore than 3 calves in totala deserving winner
very nice photo..calf approaches the father
swamynirmal: I am very sorry for the ambiguity caused by my poor English, Here I request you to send only Calves of Animals( like baby cows ).
RuthC,In previous challenges, I have seen SwamyNirmal tweaking votes, letting unfair things happen as administrator.
RuthC: Um, swamynirmal, are you referring to baby cows etc., or the backs of people's legs, as in calf muscles? Just wondering. Ruth :-)
Ruth,He refers to calf muscles of baby cows.
Rens: I see the rules state that any offensive shots will be immediately removed.
I entered this:
from my dpreview gallery, which has been removed.
I see swamynirmal's comment below, posted after my entry and presumably prompted by it.
How prudish can you be? And how lacking in humour?
he did not disqualify this, http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=882625&View=NewFirst&Rows=4 despite no calves present
Swamynirmal,Why won't your refrain from hosting challenges? I already explained you that, you have no integrity or skills that are required to host challenges. You may blame it on your poor English skills. But there is no specification, if just one calf is enough or there should be two or more calves needed. Like this, 'unknowns' are carelessly left out. where are calves in this photo: http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=882625&View=NewFirst&Rows=4 you did not disqualify it.
Eric Ouellet: What the heck is going down here, people talk about raw, bandwith, artifact of jpeg and so on.There is a format with better quality and just more options for the same size... And the higher quality is truly visible! All of that for free... That's just great!!! Congratulation to Fabrice Bellard for its job and its free licensing.
About Raw: You could also save your raw file in this format (loss-less). One format that could fits all (with compression).About Bandwith: No connection? Better quality for same size or smaller size for same quality.About Artifact: A company do a good job or not of converting to JPEG and/or we should also live with the way this encoder works. It's not a debate on good conversion. Anybody good convert properly if they really want it.About Better color accuracy: You can have more pixel (if any could ever see the difference) but mainly it also support the ICC (like jpeg).We (and companies) only have to accept it and we will all live happier :-)
@akpinxit,you misunderstood the comparison tool. Just set the photos to tiny and move the slider left to right. left side is mushy jpeg and right side is BPG. if you still see left is better, you must be communist
jaykumarr: very cute shot..great job..
what is your opinion about this tamron lens? does it do BIF well?
Bird In Flight
very cute shot..great job..
a dream like photo..
i think DR of D800 played a superb role in bringing out colors in shadows.
excellent work.. stiching is not visible...
jaykumarr: readers who are angry about the pricing should see the pricing of 80-400mm II Nikon AF-S. That is 20% higher. ( As per the feedback from users, that Nikon lens is extremely fast focusing and almost as sharp as prime. So I neither blame that price).
@Bananasplit,My original post was that, this 100-400mm lens price is not unfair at all since 80-400mm nikon has higher price.
But somehow you did some roundabout and finally managed to advise me to buy 7DII . For that you claimed nikon has costlier lens and canon has bad noise sensors as the reasons.
I am tired finally.
