In reply to:

FastGlassLover: Mediocre sharpness, some ugly CA, bad vignetting and poor saturation. I guess that's what happens when you have 3 lenses worth of elements stacked up. But, it zooms!!!

You must have a different monitor than I have. I find it hard to beat for the money and the range, speed. What else you going to buy?

Now that is called dedication! Not sure how long you can pull off doing it, but wow impressive shot and player.

Favorable Exponynt: Basic specs look a lot like the Ricoh WG-M2 which is cheaper.

Well I guess we are on a total downward spiral to the bottom on everything fake from Boobs to photos. This makes PS look like total reality compared to this for unrealistic outcomes..

Even though he was Canadian, he had the funny English wit about him.

I really enjoyed his reviews with the puns he used in pretty much every one of them. Was a pleasure to read his stuff. Few and far between people like him in the world. Pretty much impossible to replace I guess in this time we live in now..

Glad I followed him from pretty much the start. Nothing but respect for him. Sad day for sure.

One of the nicest pictures I have seen on here for months and it is from a P&S basically!

Wow, well done, very nice. Maybe I need to sell all my gear and use a 150 dollar tool to make it happen LoL.

We are talking a EoS M mount, not a 600mm 2.8 FF lens! Get a grip.

In reply to:

Sports Shooter: who's is young enough to remember the Pentax LX? It had a good lens/accessories system build around it. I fell in love with the K1000 and was seriously thinking to get the LX but then I went for the Canon F1.
The K-1 sounds like a great affordable FF camera but Pentax is lagging behind with the lens system.

Bought a Nikon Nikkorex F and a 50 2.0 in the Navy in 1966. Had it until a few years ago.

The bags with all the strap options seem like it is a well thought out product.

I see they are expensive, but so is the gear you are putting in it. I will have to give them some more thought. Thanks for the review.

Jeff Greenberg: More $$ = higher starting salaries
= cream of crop engineering graduates.
Logical if Sony don't go greedy...?
The rest & even dropouts to Canon & Nikon...

Everyone does not need a college degree. I bet a plumber or electrician makes more money than a lot of college grads. God knows we need them more than another MBA grad.

I don't think anyone having one should be unhappy about it, but a lot of people have degrees in subjects that they are never going to get a job in that pays even 30k a year.

If you have a talent go for it. What if that band was the Beetles, Stones. I bet their parents were against them also.

Do what you want to do. Its your life, enjoy it while you are young. Plenty of years to put your nose to the grindstone if that is your thing. Young people now will probably have to work 70 years before you retire!!

I don't really see how you can beat it for the price. It would open up a lot more dimensions in your work. I am tempted!

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2126 comments in total)

Anyone notice that there are like vertical strips on the back wall between the picture frame and the lamp of the black and white area of the old women in a rocking chair, with the a6300, a6000, a5300 and it is not present in no other camera I can find. There is even horizontal stripes on the woman's standing face.

Scorpius1: Nice to see Hasselblad back in the mix, Now they should go and revise some of the glass , they need more HC (as opposed too HCD ) glass of top quality to make the most of the sensor!

I think this is their 75th anniversary. So I expect some good things from them. And they have a new CEO to boot.

Wow, looks pretty darn impressive, and the price is not bad either.

Would have been nice at 20mp but can't have everything.
