On Nikon D750 Review preview (1119 comments in total)
In reply to:

James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.

It would appear that either NWT is short for NitWiT, or he has some weird agenda.

A fantastic shot and my choice to win.

Pity the fool who gave this shot a "1".

In reply to:

EssexAsh: is there no submission limit or can we just spam the thread with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle?

Obviously. if you look at the submissions, "spamming with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle" is perfectly acceptable.

In reply to:

ysengrain: And what about somme incredible Zeiss lens ?

Hugo - are you serious? Have you heard of manufacturers' warranties? Amazon has a 30 day return/exchange program - as good as anywhere. And Amazon doesn't pay corporate taxes?

Sure.....

Wow! I've never seen piles of ladybugs.

Hopefully they are not the biting kind!

A well deserved win.

On BIG BEND TEXAS in the Big Bend challenge (3 comments in total)

You're obviously familiar with the Park.

This is a close-up of the huge metal T-bone just inside the main gate, featuring the recent repairs.

I am so glad they didn't go ahead with their demolition plans for this iconic sculpture.

A couple of magnum rivets, and it's as good as new - there for future generations of Texans to enjoy!

I gave this five stars.

This photo epitomizes everything that is good, enduring and solid about Odessa.

A wallhanger for sure!

On Pentax announces Q7 with larger 12MP BSI CMOS sensor article (232 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: The larger sensor and more reasonable pricing should make this camera competitive with Canon and Nikon's enthusiasts P&S offerings. The only problem I see is that the market for those cameras is shrinking, not growing. So unless Pentax can grab a substantial share of that market, I don't see how this camera will help their bottom line. Still, I hope it does well.

Raist - when you say "helping Pentax's bottom line", do you mean the Q sales are helping to reduce the losses that Pentax is generating for Ricoh?

In reply to:

SungiBr: Ricoh is unleashing all products Hoya promissed ages ago. And took less than two years to do it.

They seems to be listening all of us pentax users, and are showing some serious commintment to pentax user base

Richard - you didn't know Pentax users have been screaming for (and dreaming of) a toy cap lens for the Q for "ages"?

This is BIG!

Much more important than, say, a TC. Or a viable extreme telephoto. Or a FF camera. Or...

On CHIPPING SPARROW in the Sparrows challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks, ysal. It's a whole class below Walter's (Toxiq's) winning entry, so I don't mind the placing.

On SHAGBARK HICKORY LEAF in the Leaf Detail challenge (1 comment in total)

Yikes! 1/2 and 1 star votes.

Hopefully this is because the voters mistakenly believed they were looking at multiple leaves. This is actually a single compound leaf.

In reply to:

minturnino: Finally!!!!! Great Pentax!!! While Tamron do not update the lens to Pentax Camera..... Pentax solve the gap!
I hope that the cost is fair and not excessive in relation to the competition!

Hmmm... The Tamron is available for other mounts (on eBay) for $500.00. If Pentax can rebadge other companys' designs and get a 60% premium for the same lens, more power to them!
