I'm only here for the moment.

  • Perhaps there is, but how many people are going to buy a $2000 500mm f/5.6 instead of a $1300 200-500mm f/5.6 or $1800 150-600mm f/5~6.3 if the prime isn't "deadly sharp?" The original poster ...
  • Here's the thing about "cannibalization." If you don't cannibalize your own product line someone else will. Unfortunately, it's a lesson that companies seem to forget all too often. I don't know ...
  • If you want heated debate about 24-70mm lenses, head to the Nikon forum. Canon's 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses are boring. They do their job without fuss or bother and let the pro event photographers make ...
  • Do you have some market research or sales figures to support your claims? Because Nikon does. "If you build it, they will come. ” It’s sound advice if you’re thinking of putting a baseball diamond ...
  • Congratulations! You just made it in under the wire for consideration as the "Summer of 2016 archtypical dpreview post!" Our inscrutable and highly imaginary screening committee was impressed by: (1) A ...
  • What you are missing is that you are not, technically, a 12 year old girl. Her preferences in camera gear are no more likely to be the same as yours than her preferences in music or clothing. Nor ...
  • Replied in 50-150mm DX ?
    A poll to gauge interest on a 50-150mm f/2.8 DX is kinda like a taking Presidential Election Poll on November 15th 2016. Sigma gave people a chance to vote with their credit cards. Twice! They ...
  • "Image is everthing." For sports photographers, it really is "pics or it didn't happen." If they don't capture the right moment, they don't capture a paycheck very long. While I'll leave it to the ...
  • I wrote this 5 months ago. The only thing that's changed since then is that the D500 is selling pretty well to wildlife and sports photographers. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57410421
  • It isn't in the manual since  Nikon leaves nonsense claims like that to poseurs like yourself.  Are the rest of your "facts" of the same quality?
  • True.  Nikon lenses are not very good at delivering pizzas or other tasks that they are not designed to do. On the other hand, the 70-200mm outsells your "precious" by about 5 to 1, and people ...
  • True.  I only ignored your opinions.
  • Thank you for your subjective opinion. Here's a tip for the rest of the responders.  When someone is claiming objectivity, "Pics or it didn't happen."  Otherwise, politely ignore him, just as I did ...
  • Replied in OK, let's see
    Nikon announces a lens which doesn't appear to have been on anyone's rumor mill and isn't a years-late match to a Canon offering. And within a week, posters here have dissed it because: (1) The ...
  • I wouldn't assume that "Bart2016" is actually a current or former customer, and I feel for Helen. But at times you have to tell someone "I'm sorry you feel that way; let's work to get you a refund ...
  • Why not contact the photographer via their agent and ask?  I heard that Bailey switched to Nikon a couple of years ago, but also used Phase One gear in the past.

    To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, turn, turn) And a time to every purpose, under heaven A time to be born, a time to die A time to plant, a time to reap A time to kill, a ...
  • Interesting and thanks.  It looks like Arca-Swiss is contradicting itself, and Nikon and Canon could, if they were willing to engage in a patent fight, make gear which took advantage at least some ...
  • https://photographylife.com/arca-swiss-quick-release-system "The solution, which has become somewhat of a standard nowadays, was developed by a company called Arca-Swiss back in 1990s and since ...
