Lance B is enjoying his Nikon D7000!

Catching up my DPR forum reading and found this " http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1034&message=37294774 ". It looks like Lance has completed his brand transition. I wonder if he still shoots with K-7.

Re: Lance B is enjoying his Nikon D7000!

Good for Lance.... For him it made sense going to the D700 for full frame. I thought he was keeping his K7 as his small sensor cam, but being able to carry two bodies with only one set of lenses has its advantages

Lance might still keep K-7 for just being nostalgic if nothing else. I hope he comes by and gives us some comments on AF performance, between K-7 and D7000, from his perspective.

Your posting history ...

is quite revealing: http://www.dpreview.com/members/3775057538/forums/Threads

Get back to zoo shooting ... it's certainly less 'obvious' than this little charade.

If you're so interested in Lance why don't you make yourself useful and ask him how much (any major currency will do) did this "transition" cost him. I bet a thread titled "Lance B spent over 10 000 USD on his Nikon gear" would make a much better impression than your pathetic attempts to fake concern for the poor K-5 owners: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1036&message=37213699

Re: Lance B is enjoying his Nikon D7000!

I have no beef with Lance B and I don't think his name should be used by a troll for his flame bait threads. The way Lance spends his money is not of my business neither are his pursuit of photography.

This "Rick" guy has a long history of trolling in this forum and I believe that at least a week long break will do him good.

Re: Lance B is enjoying his Nikon D7000!

Is that like Pentax god is shooting Nikon? Dont think so, he made impact but is now using another brand. Something like selling Audi and using BMW ... Who cares

If you actually believe this poster isn't the zoo shooter ... you are certainly less cynical than I. Look at the threads he has started and tell me who ya think this shameless account belongs to.

I don't doubt it's coming. Seems post-Gazooma DPR mods are checking IP's more frequently.

Sure! Lance apparently started this account in 2008, posting in Canon forums, just so he could use it to haunt the Pentax forum in late 2010, pointing folks at his 'real' account threads in which he shoots a Nikon! Makes sense! Also, his location says "US", which is automatically changed after a while based on IP, so he must be coming through a US server before he hits dpreview with this account. Yep, that's Lance all right, he's just that devious!

(some people have enough paranoia for an entire forum, I tells ya.)

Cut Lance some slack...

he is out of the zoo and shooting in the wild (OK, semi wild, in a National park) and I think that is to be applauded. Lance is predominantly a gear head and lens tester and to see him actually out and about with a camera is laudable.

Oh boy, I just love these threads ....

.. on the Pentax forum. There's nothing quite like it elsewhere on DPReview. I reckon this forum would keep a whole posse of psychologists busy. The usual suspects exhibiting the usual paranoia.

I look forward to many a fresh chuckle in 2011. Happy New Year when it arrives, folks.

Thommo, I've really enjoyed your photographs ....

... this year - and last. Actually it was probably the original "Sorry" day photos that made me sit up and take notice. Keep up the good work and keep posting through 2011.
All the best to you and yours for the coming year.

Re: Thommo, I've really enjoyed your photographs ....

Thanks very much Mike - and can I say I've always enjoyed your shots and your highly refined BS detector. Its been a few years now hasn't it - from the days of the *ist cameras to the sophisticated machines Pentax make now.

To you and your family - have a great year.

Re: Drive by trolling again, Rick?

Yeah maybe you don't need the best gear to shoot anything static, but you do need skill. I've shot many a 'bird portraits' myself at zoos, wildlife refuges and in the wild. Everyone likes them and many couldn't get a photo as good as some of the ones i get.

So while gear may not make a better photographer, you can't just walk into a zoo and get great shots, i've seen plenty of ordinary zoo photos on here.

You may not need a D700 but Lance does shoot many different things and is a pretty talented photographer as well.
