Lighthouse shot is striking.

not a bad selection although the bellowing stag has been done so many times and better from that location.

The crop tool doesn't have a crop command so to speak you just save the highlighted area?

Tamron 150-600 would surely have come top?

bronson: This is designed for the oil sheik with the gold plated Bugatti. Nothing more, nothing less. The outdoorsy lifestyle shot of the guy in jeans is laughable.

Might be a heavy holding it for his Cartel boss.

would like to see something from science news like the efficient blue emitting LEDs or the STED microscope.

InTheMist: Someone will come along and criticize.

When they do, look at their gallery first.

Well I like all these, especially the underwater plants. However if I didn't I would feel free to criticise, after all I may be a lousy pianist but I know a poor interpretation of Bach's Goldberg variations when I hear one even if it's by a top player.

I was evidently over optimistic expecting a new style lens cap.

Canon 3D printer with designs for lens caps, body caps, hoods and various other accessories. Annual licence required to buy.

A white body and white macro lens could be useful as in my experience bugs react more to dark objects approaching them.

Newer better sensor than the 70D he said.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)
In reply to:

NeilSDPR: Cancelled my order for the 1D MarkV

Specs on this particularly AF and frame rate are top notch, and it's a crop sensor that will put more than 60% more pixels on small subject matter than my 1DX

For BIF and wildlife or anyone focally challenged it's is just what's needed

However before anyone knocks it for poor IQ or ISO, wouldn't it be more sensible to wait for reviews and sample shots

1D MKV ?

Spectro: no real issues with the photos, but the UK don't seem to have much wildlife to photograph. sad photo of the puffin.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (801 comments in total)
In reply to:

jack123torr: Hi all,

I am tempted to sell my Nikon D7100 + 18-200 lens (old vesion, "red NR") and replace by the FZ1000. It is smaller, lighter, more options (rotating screen, panorama, wifi, NFC, etc etc etc).

The only point that concerns me is: "will there be a noticeable difference on 4x6 prints at ISO 3200 and 6400"?

Any comments? Thanks.

Won't be in the same league as your Nikon. I bought the FZ as a walk around on holidays but there is noticeable smearing of detail compared to my Canon dslrs.
