On article Taking it easy: Canon EOS 80D shooting experience (290 comments in total)

Thanks, Dan, for the nice photos and writeup.
I really liked the fact that both 'processed to taste' and unprocessed versions of the photos were included (although I'd change the ordering in the slideshow to show unprocessed first).
These make the review more personal and also show how post-processing helps bring images to life.
Also, the unprocessed and processed versions of the beach shot illustrate the point about dynamic range (DR) very clearly and convincingly. Nice touch!
Overall, this read like a good story and a good piece of journalism!

Dundo Maroje: 17 elements in 13 groups
That's why it costs so much

... including 3 ED elements and 2 aspherical elements.

I also wish the lens was cheaper but overall, it's a high-end design lens.

On article Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D (316 comments in total)

Very good article, bringing some very interesting points.

Canon's ultimate goal here is stop discounting the premium models, IMO.

It has become a common practice in the past couple of years to introduce a camera at a certain price and discount it only a couple of months later.
This is good for us, consumers, but I doubt it makes sense for manufacturers.

So, by having the 70D, T6s, and T6i spec'd and priced so closely, Canon is likely attempting to prevent price erosion of the 70D and T6s models, while still offering a lower price on the T6i.

Note that the intro price of the Rebel series in the US has been $850 for more than five years now - and the T6i is now introduced at $750.

On article Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses (368 comments in total)

Henrik Herranen: MTF for the EF-S 10-18:
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/ef_lens_lineup/ef_s_10_18mm_f_4_5_5_6_is_stm

Are my eyes deceiving me or does the MTF look seriously impressive for a 300$ lens?

And although it was posted earlier, here's a reposted 16-35/4 IS link:

Yes, the MTF is seriously impressive ... but let's not forget that it's a f5.6 lens (at the tele end).
Also, we don't know what the distortions are. Could be humongous.

Kudos to the reviewers for the silver award.
Canon needs to work harder for the price they are asking.

On article CP+ 2013: Interview with Canon's Masaya Maeda (490 comments in total)
In reply to:

photo nuts: I wonder if the D300 and 7D will just die a natural death. Their replacement will probably be similar to Nikon D7000, if the latter is not already considered the successor to D300. :)

IMO, a 50 MP FF image when cropped down to APS-C size should be a sufficient replacement for those who like the reach of APS-C

Before the 6D was announced, I was sure that the 7D would not get a successor.

The 6D specs are so basic, though, that it is now certain that we’ll see a 7DII - likely in the fall.

But by Canon's own admission, the 7DII will be the last crop camera in this price range ($1600-1800).

Five years from now, only sub-$1000 cameras will have crop sensors.

+1000 on removing the thumbs-down/bad-karma button.

In reply to:

Graystar: Other forum software has eliminated the "thumbs down" rating and simply have a "Like" because people would abuse the thumbs down.

+1000

CanonRumors had a 'karma' button and that did not work ... at all.

The new design is clean and looks very good.

Don't know how the new color scheme is going to work for me, so good that I have the option to keep using the old one.

Where are the emoticons, though?

Also, when is DPreview going to implement 'polls' feature - for creating user polls?
