very good camera

if you know how to use it, it must be your best friend, it's not for sports shooting, if you take a lot of moving objects, it will not fits you. but if you just like artist doing, landscape, portrait, or even some nights view, its' performance is unbeatable!!! You have to use Raw format only. But amazing!!!

Very good ca,

Is good for kids and pets and not for sports? You mean kids and pets that are standing still, yeah right. And if they're standing still guess what? That's a portrait.

Wrong-o

Those are "stop-action" kids. Or is that another category?

I sure feel swell about all the stars though.

Sleeping kids and pets (in good light). Not good for all the sports but should be fast enough for the chess game

Really...? How do you explain how Chuck Lantz manages to get his action shots? Perhaps he has learnt to freeze time using his TARDIS. I must ask him sometime.

Chuck L. is like Chuck Norris of Sigma. He can freeze the action at will

You will be banned. I promise you it will happen soon.

You must learn how to suck and you must learn to leave you honesty and integrity at the gate to survive here.

I look at Chuck Lantz photos. All boats at a very long distance mostly. Not much movement up close. Very easy to stop the action. His photos are very many, very underwhelming and very boring too.
