  • "Railroaded"? You're playing the victim card. Oh, poor you. The world is out to get you. Go out and take some pictures. Be a real photographer, not a measurebator. Having the most optically perfect ...
  • Replied in More diddums
    BS. No one is being "conned into buying." This absurd "purity" litmus test (regarding lenses) is just a lonely measurebator's pursuit. Every day I see excellent photos being produced by today's ...
  • Yep, I agree. At the end of the day, it's really the end result that matters. I really don't care how you get there, whether it be via hardware or software or a combination of the two. If a lens ...
  • I have an X-E1. Feels fine to me. Are parts of the body made of plastic? Sure. Does it make any functional difference? No. It's all psychological. If you want a camera carved out of a solid...

  • Get off my lawn, you crazy kids!
  • It's incredible how few parts a mirrorless camera has compared to a DSLR.

  • But as we move forward, a bigger and bigger chunk of ILC sales will be taken up my mirrorless cameras. For example, in the past, a camera like the Canon 80D would have easily been a top seller (as ...
  • The sad reality is that DSLRs are a steadily declining market. I think in a few years, DSLRs will be viewed in the same way that old videocams and early-generation cell phones are viewed: as ...
  • Yes, the price is higher than previous of this Costco bundle.
  • Excellent! I like Samyang E-mount lenses. I just wished they made AF lenses. And now they do!

  • My policy is to NEVER check my gear into the cargo hold. Way too much risk. All my gear goes on board as carry-on. I used to travel with DSLR gear, but now I use mirrorless gear, which allows me ...
  • If you believe that, then you don't know history. Jumping from FD mount to a fully electronic EF mount-- daring innovation. Canon's USM-- innovation. Their IS lenses-- innovation. Canon's QCD ...
  • Yes, it's pertinent information, especially when you consider that the A6300 is several hundred dollars more than the Rebel T5. A Rebel T5 kit sells for $399. An A6300 body only sells for $998. ...
  • You like to say that, but I'm a long-time Canon user. The problem is that cameras such as the 80D don't sell nearly as well as they used to.  For example, on Amazon it's being outsold by the Sony ...
  • Please stop comparing Amazon to your local supermarket. Amazon is one of the biggest sellers of cameras in the US, if not the world. Think Kodak, Nokia, or Microsoft in mobile. You wait too long, ...
  • From Walter Isaacson's book on former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, It's one of the fatal mistakes that Kodak made.  They were afraid that digital would cannibalize their film sales. This is a sentiment ...
  • Amazon is one of the biggest sellers of cameras in the US. There profits were down 21% in 2015. canon-profits-down-21-as-mirrorless-cameras-cut-into-dslr-sales/ In 2015, Sony was definitely making ...
  • Actually, you're missing the trend. It used to be that Canon's and Nikon's other models sold very well, too. But now, sales are mainly in their low-end, lower-margin, older models. For example, ...
  • I suspect that Canon is going to ride the DSLR market to the end. They are too comfortable there. Meanwhile, other mirrorless systems will continue to mature, grow, and expand their usership. At ...
  • (1) Futuresource Consulting: "The DSLR market has performed slightly better than we had anticipated and this is due to aggressive pricing promotions from both Canon and Nikon, particularly for ...
