waxwaine: Pentax design and make cameras usually from scratch, for serving the concept of the moment(setup, optic, construction, etc) , while Canon and Nikon must do it based on thrir pro products(d4s, 5Ds) because buyers of their entry level dslrs commonly know nothing or a few of photography, yhen they only know what it´s seen on TV or events. Low canikon models are like new cheap compact Mercedes or BMWs; for people that can ´t afford a real premiun car, but they want one instead Toyota or Nissan offers a better option for the same price.
That's the stupidest thing I've heard all day, and I was just on a NASCAR forum.
Thorgrem: Very nice to see big professional tele lenses which arent ugly white. Or does this one also comes in white?
LOL,, it's called 'Physics' thor,,look into it. lol
Seems a bit gimmicky,,,nothing really sexy,,, definitely one for the Pentax fanboys.
More hipster twaddle. Like fitting wheels to a tomato,,,, time consuming and totally unnecessary.
simpleshot: You don't need an atomic bomb to kill that many.
The Japanese slaughtered a total of 30 million people in Asia during WW2.
They would do massacres in a single city in hundreds of thousands. Most of the massacres occurred in China - 23 million civilians. In Nanking city alone, 300,000 were massacred. In the majority of the killings, people were slashed with bayonets and left to bleed to death.
Strange thing is, they make such bloody good cameras.
Wows, short but pointless. Particularly enjoyed the homeboy grabbing his crotch.
Petroglyph: Sony is running with the FE mount cams! They'll release the 16-35 OSS and fast prime soon I bet. Esp. since Canon is releasing theirs (16-35) with identical stats. They're feeling a little competition perhaps?
>>Canon 7D, after 5 years from it's release >>is still a superb camera. It still sells well, >>and many Pro's still demand it.
That's the stupidest thing I've read all day, and I was just on a NASCAR forum.
yeah,, 'cos you want a nice black surface that absorbs heat when you're out shooting in the blazing sun,,, lol,, comical.
A lot of used 17-40L lenses are about to hit the market.
STR54: Now that these are out of the way, time to update the 300 F4L and 400mm F5.6L prime telephotos!
What's wrong with the current 400mm f/5.6L? It has nice IQ, reasonably affordable, focuses fast and is sharp as hell.
Valiant Thor: Colorful but highly exaggerated title. The deepest men have ventured into the earth is around 2.4 miles which would be 0.00057 % to the center. It may be a while before someone claims that prize.
You need a hobby mate.
57even: Fell asleep about 3mins in...
I agree,,,, the video about your meteoric career in photography is wayyyy more interesting.
Frank_BR: Three cameras, same price: $ 1199
Sony A77II: 12fpsNikon D7100: 6fpsCanon 70D: 7fps
SLT rules, flipping mirror sucks!
Umm, no Frank. Let's wait to see how well the AF tracking algorithm works before we get all excited. 12 FPS means ZIP if half the shots are OOF.
Juck: MAybe I missed it,,, What's the burst/buffer depth for RAW,, anyone know?
impressive,, let's hope the AF tracking algorithm is up to the task.
Thx,, not bad,, about the same as a 7D and only a couple less than a 1D mk IV.

itchhh: I'm not sure the word "stunning" fits for these images in 2014. Maybe 10 years ago, but not today. With the rapid improvements in technology and more people with camera's, stunning shots are harder to come by than they once were. Kuddos to each of the photographers and their shots, its still an honor to be chosen.
Well you're just a little ray of sunshine, aren't you?
Glen Barrington: No Viewfinder, No thanks. I can get the Olympus OMD E-M10 for that much money, and it comes with a viewfinder.
This illustrates the point I've been making for the last week or so. The future does NOT belong to Canon. Canon/Kodak sameo-sameo.
yeah,, right. lol
MaxiMax: There was a time when I really liked Canon cameras. Back in 2004, after getting rid of all my Nikon film cameras, I bought their flagship camera with 8 Mpixels. It was a much better camera than Nikon's flagship at that time, that had only 5 Mpixels - It was a time when pixels really counted. On the compact side, I had a few Canon compacts. They were all great cameras. The last compact from Canon I owned was the G10. After that, sorry Canon, but you are lagging behind now. Canon needs seriously to do a better job. Today, I own cameras from other brands. The G1 X Mark II looks disappointing.
What a lovely story.
