ncsakany: Good for him. Lots of sour grapes by wannabe photogs in this thread.
No kidding,,, listen to all these clowns,, like they could do better "if they had the right equipment". lol.
mickcivic: These comments bring to mind my favorite photography joke: "How many photographers does it take to shoot a picture? A thousand: One to shoot the picture, 999 to say 'I could have done it better.'"
justinwonnacott: Who bought this? I do not believe this is legitimate, no collector or museum could be six and a half million dollars mis informed. I smell buulshit or an inflated exaggerated public relations story here. The photo is dramatic and unremarkable, maybe it is a deal with ikea for posters?
You're kidding, right?
I'm not laughing.
worldcup1982: Got to love the same old same old every time a camera is released. How about the cameras expectations? The camera looks at the photos taken by the photographer and says: JEH, WHY WERE YOU WHINNING SO MUCH? go take some photography classes before ever touch me again...
You are a moron.
Spectro: Cameras tested in Seattle's late fall and winter outdoor are at a disadvantage. The sun just don't shine much, mostly cloudy days. Colors are not going to pop. It doesn't stop from me taking photos in Seattle though.
What a lovely story.
andymuns: All i can say is have look at this.... http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-EOS-7D-Mark-II-versus-Pentax-K-3-versus-Nikon-D7100___977_914_865A $1800 camera should have a better sensor then Canon Eos 7d Mark II has...
Go home. That means less than nothing.
Paul B Jones: What an awesome camera, but only for photographers.
Rockaw: Good job,Sony. By the time Canikon gets their heads out of the sand, most of the market may have completely moved to Sony, Panasonic, and Olympus.
lol, been hearing that twaddle for 20+ years. Not happening.
Leica Fanboy nonsense. End.
Remarkable shot considering you were using a manual lens at F/5 ,, I couldn't do that,,, bravo!
ozturert: She thinks 7D's shutter is loud, but 1Dx's is not? She thinks 7D's high ISO performance is not good enough, how big does she print them? She thinks 7D's AF was slow and cluncky, has she used other APSC sensor bodies? 7D's AF unit was the best and is still one of the best in APSC bodies (bested by MarkII now), though slow and less precise compared to 1D bodies.She needs to tell her reference point when she says "bad", "slow" or "noisy".She is a very young pro, I need to wait for others who have been in this sector longer and used 10s of bodies.
@wiggles ,,, Sorry sweetie,,, men are speaking. Just because the High ISO performance sucked less than other APS-C bodies in 2009,, doesn't,,,, mean,,,, it,,,,, didn't,,, still ,,,, suck. Complicated stuff I know.
Lots of pointless debate going on here. If you want to shoot sport on an APS-C body,,, the 7D and now 7D II (and of course their native lenses) are the only players in the game. please,, PLEASE,, someone,, tell me you can shoot a football game better on a A6000 ,,, or some toy Pentax.
Not sure what universe you live in, chunky, but in this one, the 7D's high ISO performance performance was comical,, even in 2009.
David McGaughey: Yawn. Yet another mediocre variable aperture mega zoom.
McGormless ,,, you actually made me laugh out loud, poor boy.
Very nice,, let's hope he doesn't end up in an ISIS video.
Juck: The Canon 70-200 F/4 non-IS deserves a mention here,,,, one of the sharpest zooms out there,,, lightweight at 705g and 'only' $700.
So it doesn't deserve a mensh because you don't have the skills to handle an F4 lens that doesn't have IS? That's pretty funny.

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.
