On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1554 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mssimo: This cameras has something called a weak link. It would be kick ass if it only had a 2011 class sensor on it (2014 would be nice but I know not to expect much). Samsung seems to have a BSI APC in the new NX1. Why cant canon give in and just outsource that sensor. Even panasonic is outsourcing sensors. (sony 1"). On the plus side, there are no cameras that really compete with the 7D at the moment. A77 does not have much of a lens selection and mirrorless is just getting into the pro sports category. Canon will sell lots of these but its hard to ignore mirrorless cameras like the EM-1 that shoots at 10fps and samsung at 14fps with full focus.

Maybe not all the lenses, but the A77ii is half the price and still can do 12fps.

Alas, great looking and functional retro Nikon, but....still no eyepiece blind!

Seems to be lacking an eyepiece shutter--too bad.

anilkuzhikala: D800 at a very competitive price making extremely high resolution image capture available at a price that is one quarter the price of medium format!

Hi Joe. What do you know of the MLU implementation on these Nikons? Same ol' sequence or improvement like allowing MLU with the self timer? Perhaps improved Live View operation?

OK, here's my usual question. How is the MLU function implemented in these new Nikons? Hopefully the sequencing is improved over past designs where camera shake could sometimes be problematic.

On Fujifilm releases X-S1 premium EXR 26X superzoom article (383 comments in total)

The older Fuji big sensor superzoom gave very impressive results. As an avid bird photographer, I'm very much looking forward to this camera. Would love to see some real world samples as I have seen on previous 2/3 semspr fujis. I'm getting too old to lug around a DSLR with a 600 f/4--just not going to happen. Thsi camera may open up new possiblilties for us old bird geeks!
