  • Yes, I am aware of those two cameras (see OP). Unfortunately, 90D and M6 images viewed in isolation do not address my question. However, that is not helpful. What is needed is a side-by-side ...
  • Created discussion thread R7 Reach Compared to an R5
    I am intrigued by the R7 as a second body, notably for the added "reach" (more pixels being placed on a subject holding focal length and distance combination) provided by its 32MP sensor. In ...
  • @unhappymeal,

    Were you responding to me? I wonder because you must have missed my statement,

    "the point is not to just get an 800mm equivalent reach, rather it is to have a second body with a...

  • Agree.

  • .
    General comments:

    I'm looking forward to seeing RAW shots. The green heron shot (#5) at ISO 1600 already shows signs of heavy noise reduction.

    the bird headshot (# 7) at 6400 looks great (a...

  • It's hot here in Florida, but if you want to get the best images out of a digital body, you can't pick a better location (not knocking Seattle; love the city, but it's frequent overcast makes the...

  • Of course there were going to be responses countering the OP's statement since it was based on a false premise. They claim that the camera is "ugly, clunky, and incremental". Ugly and clunky are...

  • "Also when you are ok with being at 800mm F11 equiv with your zoom APS-C combo. Why not simply buy the 800mm F11 prime and stay with your R5?"

    I'm not getting into an equivalence debate, but to me...

  • Panther fan. Hopefully you're a fan of the animal and not the hockey team.

    It's why I've included the caveat that I need to wait for reviews. I'm skeptical as well--having been very...

  • One more thought, under your proposal, let's say I net $3000 for my R5 and $2000 for my 100-500 for a return of $5000.

    That leaves me $4000 short of the $9000 needed to acquire an 800mm and...

  • Let me see:
    R7 with currently owned 100-500 gives me 800mm reach for a cost of $1500.

    Your option cost $9000 (yes, the 800mm will have better IQ, but not $9000 better); I replace the 100-500 with...

  • I haven't paid attention to the R10, but I'm increasingly excited about the R7. No, it's not the 7DII replacement that everyone was hoping for, but it's not missing a whole lot. To the point, it...

  • "Selling the D500 for this is the wrong play. It’s still the best stills oriented APS-C camera available today"

    Definitely your opinion. I need to wait for R7 reviews before I express an...

  • That's what happened. I received and--apparently--responded to the confirmation notices for February and March but missed the one for April. That's a nasty way to conduct business.  I conduct a lot ...
  • Thanks, that is helpful. Fortunately, I have orders in elsewhere, and like you, have not received any word about delivery. Of course, both the 400 and 800 are shipping.   I know several photogs ...
  • Created discussion thread Amazon Cancelled my Z 400mm f/2.8 Order
    Title says it all.  I ordered on the order date.  I checked my "Open Orders" this morning and it wasn't there.  I then found an email dated May 12 that stated: "Due to a lack of availability, we ...
  • Happy for you!:-) I hope you find it worth the wait. I'm in the queue for the z 400mm 2.8 ordered about 12hrs after orders opened in February, so I feel your pain.
  • My TC experience is as follows: Canon 2x TC with 70-200 L II 2.8: Acceptably sharp images, but IQ and AF definitely took a hit Sony 1.4x TC with 200-600G:  Very inconsistent.  Occasional sharp ...
  • As a person of color and a photographer, yes, I do take it personally. Indeed, there is likely no offense intended, but it does show a lack of caring when my features and those I care about are...

  • After seeing the previous samples, I realized that I had one that might be useful as well. This peacock was in the shadows and on private property, so I couldn't get any closer. So this was a ...
