Never been happier since moving from Nikon a year .
Sony, please continue to innovate, don't stop.

Along with my on order A7R II and Batis lenses, I still need a native 14mm f/2 prime; hope Mr. Maki or Zeiss are listening!!!

straylightrun: RIP Canikon, 2015.

@ Chris Weller "ACCELERATE"? really? why are they sleeping at the wheel in the first place. They're dinos, too arrogant and deserve to die for their lack to listen to their loyal customers. BTW, get an A6000 for Birds & Sports and leave the Canikons at home; you'll enjoy it and your shoulders will thank you!

Who says that you need to buy a camera every year if you can get this result from a 6yrs old D90. Little over processed for me taste but fantastic!!!

What an amazing adventure and awesome photographs!

I'm certainly doing something wrong with my life living the dream in corporate America :(

Cheers!

On Fujifilm X30 First Impressions Review preview (471 comments in total)
In reply to:

lacroix75: I love Fuji cameras but I'd rather get a discounted X100s or the heavily discounted X-E2. Maybe it's just me but I never thought that the X10, X20 and X30 line is well positioned in the market at $600. I would consider it for $400 as a travel camera tops but not a penny more.

then get a discounted x100s and avoid the x20 and X30 line all together if you don't already have one. Btw, the x-e2 is heavily discounted; try amazon or ebay; you can buy it new for little over $600 and get the Fuji 27mm pancake for about $300 and I guarantee it will fit nicely in you jacket. But wait, you'll have much better pictures with an APS-C sensor ;)

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1611 comments in total)
In reply to:

lacroix75: I learned great lesson in the past couple years from Nikon, never buy their first release of anything. Case in point, D800 (early on focus issues, etc..) vs D810 (much more refined version of practically the same thing with minor upgrades), D600 (Oil issues) vs. D610 (again cleaned and refined version). So for me going forward, wait for the second pass, i.e., D910 instead of D900 (if there's such a thing in the future)... ;)

@HowaboutRAW I can't describe you but you are certainly a true "Fanboy" who's easily offended. Relax and get yourself a D810 :)

Barend: Reading all the comments I think that my Nikon D700 still does a decent job.

Agree, that camera was a true success!

@HowaboutRaw - I'm not advising anyone for anything, do what you wish... in my comments, I specifically said "...for me personally..." take care!

The standard on the a7r (I own one) is 100 and yes it can go down to L50 which is still different than the D810, which standard is ISO 64 with L32. Again, I don't know the inside story between Sony & Nikon but based on the sensor sensitivity (ISO), they are different... that's all!!!

francis jay: Im a d700 user before but when the d800 came up I was like no I dont need that meg pixel so I jump to fujifilm but I still want d700s with 12 or 16 megapixel

Then you should consider the Nikon DF, great upgrade and inline with the D700

Good question but I don't believe so especially from an ISO perspective being 64 (d810) vs. 100 (a7r).

In reply to:

lacroix75: Today, I'm not a CC subscriber and will continue using CS6 for years to come. However, the reality is that the "bug" for a subscription model is out there and it's only a matter of time until many of us will eventually cave in if we need the latest and greatest in photo processing feature and power. Adobe and other software giants who are currently using the subscription model realize that eventually CS6 will be a thing of the past as they continue to improve and advance their CC features (not the case today); thus we will all gradually get "sucked into it".

Advanced features are key but it'll take time to get there and convince me to join CC. For me personally, I'll consider joining the subscription model when enough advances justify the need for my work.

As far as iPhone & iPad APPs, they're nice perks but they're not a selling point for me at all and agree with Joe & Magnus3D about being a Dino...

@Prognathous & @RichRMA
Over the past 15yrs, I've used/tried different options but would NEVER consider any of them as alternatives. Even the freeware out there that claim to be an alternative aren't robust enough and don't fit well in my workflow. Don't get me wrong, they work for some but not for me.

Again, for me, I will simply continue using LR5 & CS6 until CC has a significant leap in features then I'll consider the subscription concept; this may be couple years from now...
