Greg62: I think they spelled their head office city incorrectly at the beginning of the press release. It's Ottawa (Capital of Canada) not Ottowa.

Well spotted. Doesn't inspire you with confidence in the rest of the package!

HarryLally: What has this got to do with photography or photographic kit? What will the next article be on? Cookery?

BadScience
Harry - if you don't know what this is to do with photography, or how the photography is impacting society;
then you must be
A) very old
and
B) have no children or nieces and nephews.

Yes, I am pretty old, probably older than you, though it's all relative. I have two children and three grandchildren and many other close family relationships as well as many good friends. I don't live my life in a bubble.

My point was that this is a photography website, not a sociology, politics or psychology website, so there are more appropriate/ relevant sites to raise these issueson order to have some effect. A for " how photography is impacting society...". Eh? What do you want to do? Ban it?

Seems to be working fine now. Don't know what the problem was. Thanks.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (905 comments in total)

Great review, but must point out the typo on page 5. We haven't got to May yet so the sub-head should presumably read 'March 9'. Spent too much of my working life proof-reading!

Maybe there's always an exception that proves the rule. My 17-40 f4L gets progressively sharper from 17mm to 40mm and is much sharper at 40mm than wider.

HarryLally: Nice pictures with a very interesting camera. You've captured the feel of Tokyo/ Japan well, though I've only been once myself. A couple of years ago, my wife and I stopped off there for a few days en route from Australia. My abiding memory (apart from a visit to Mount Fuji on the bullet train) was just the sheer number of people. I live in the UK, where people often comment on the population density here in London but it's nothing compared with Tokyo. Thanks for posting.

entoman - "No trees. That to me is a description of hell". What are you - a dog?

On article Hands-on with the Canon EOS 77D (450 comments in total)
In reply to:

henhen: compared to the 80d, this 77d has most everything the 80d has AND:
lighter
Bluetooth
higher iso
newer DIGI 7 processing
Isnt the 77d going to chomp on 80d sales? I mean its basically the same camera...some may say with improvements!

Even now the prices for body only 80d is about the same as the 900$ 77d!!
...mind blown!

im still going to get an 80d for the weather sealing...but I would have loved an 80d with the new processing system and Bluetooth and all the other bells and whistles...

I know...they are going to put those extra features of the 77d into the 80d and call it the 90d next year!!! I BET YA!

Wonderful specs, size etc. I was very tempted. But the pentamirror was the killer for me. Just awful.

On article 2016 DPReview Readers' Best Shots: Places (122 comments in total)

An excellent range of landscape shots. The posters should be very proud. Personally, I'm rather pleased that you didn't post the camera/ lens/ FL and aperture info. This thread should be about the photos, not kit.

On article The whole nine yards: Canon 35mm F1.4L II USM review (338 comments in total)

Rather a 'rave' review - could almost have been written by Canon. The Photozone review (using the same camera) is more balanced IMHO. The lens still gets an excellent review, but it's rather less gushing.

Well, it could still be possible. He's alive and well and living in Kentish Town here in north London, these days. Still doing the odd bit of work, I understand.

HarryLally: 'pled'? New word to me! Abbreviated form of 'pleaded'?

John Driggers/ entoman. Dear oh dear, you are both very sensitive souls. I, of course, realise that this site is now based in Seattle and that the use of American English is widespread on the site. No problems with that, at all. I had just never heard or seen the word 'pled' before. Nor do I object to 'text message' abbreviations like DPR. Nor am I a Brit. Though I live in London, I'm Irish by birth and have worked and travelled widely over the world, including OZ, NZ and the USA, if you'll excuse the 'text message' abbreviations...

HarryLally: 'pled'? New word to me! Abbreviated form of 'pleaded'?

I did google it. Google said it's a north American dialect past participle of 'plead'. Not English then. Never heard it or seen it written before. Horrible lazy word IMO.

Is it really necessary to publish such announcements twice?

Exciting, though! Amateur Photographer magazine never was famous for its spelling.
