On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1062 comments in total)
In reply to:

aekn: These Canon reviews with real world comparisons are great validation for those with "aging" technology like that of the Nikon D7000.

I guess investing in a new D7000 for $525 right now isn't such a bad move, from an image quality standpoint.

That's why I just bought 3 of them!!

aekn: As long as Canon (and its incompetence) is around, Richard's business should thrive!

Now we just need to get Richard the startup funds to build a sensor for Canon and they'd be all set.

We're contemplating full frame...unless we can make it in a million colors. Then it's a no brainer!

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (689 comments in total)

A fair review indeed, if anything a bit generous given the fact that image quality and ergonomics seem worse to me than the G1 X I loved so much.

I don't see the benefit to the macro setting if the images are often fuzzy, even with a small aperture.

But hey, at least it has an expensive add-on EVF and wifi built in. Yay.

Richard - even picking it up for the first time would give you a leg up on Ken Rockwell...

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)

So...look at the first image of the DPR "Hands On" report. Once you get the hood and EVF attached, and extend the flash, how is this easier to use than a mirrorless ILC?

All we needed was a slightly up-sized G12 or a refined G1 X classic. I can't believe I had my hopes up for this monstrosity.

In reply to:

justmeMN: As someone who owned a Pentax film-SLR, it's sad to see what the company has become. The company was sold, and resold, and doesn't have much of a future. In 2010 they had a whopping 1.5% worldwide market share, and it's probably even worse now.

It's sad to see these types of uninformed posts. Companies being sold and re-sold are called "today's economy". What does it matter what market share they have as long as the company is profitable (one of the few that are today)? If you're a consumer, product features, quality, price/performance ratio, and accessibility (even if only online) should be mostly what matters.

DPReview...you may want to correct the interview link to be from John Carlson, definitely not to be confused with John(ny) Carson....

Pentax took the leap from making a ridulously worthless white press-on body cap, to making an equally worthless lens that actually looks like it would make a good body cap. Go figure.
