HowaboutRAW: Motivation for Nikon to work out the supply chain slowness of the D850.

"xPhoenix has not added any gear to their gear list yet." Just as well.

Rick Knepper: Redding seems to be getting all of the news attention. Those homes are insured and can be quickly rebuilt. There is no property and casualty insurance on Yosemite National Park where the Ferguson Fire has closed the park. NPS goes on and on about unhealthy forests and the effects of fire suppression but that posture suspiciously arose and coincides with Republican efforts to cut the NPS budget.

And then you have almost the entire Republican party which simply loves Russian tampering with our elections. There is a word for that.

My Mavic Air might have just gone up for sale :^)

Reilly Diefenbach: I like my D850 with 24-85VR for travel :^)

Which is one reason my pics will always be better than yours.

nitroman: I love these awards and to see iPhones being used as serious image making tools. There will always be a place for high end cameras and DSLR's, but mobile phones have democratised digital image making and reinforced the truth that it's not what you got, but what you do with it that counts.

If one can look past the barrier of grain and grunge to the subject matter.

13000 and one out of ten in focus. Great!

ZeBebito: With this extreme DoF the subjects look like if they were copy-pasted in gaussian blur backgrounds with no context of where they are at all.

Coming from the worst photographer I've ever seen, that's a pretty good compliment.

A balloon of face floating in a sea of fuzz. Weird.

Proving once again that it's not a good idea to have only one eye in focus or to put a hoop through your lower lip.

Reilly Diefenbach: Could we ever get an actual photographer to do these sample galleries? $11K around your neck and this is the best you could come up with? Sheesh!

I'm sorry if that stung a bit, boys. I've been stung too. After I got over it I took the useful portion of the C&C on offer and improved to the near godlike status I now enjoy :^) Seattle is hardly short of worthy subjects.

Reilly Diefenbach: 12 grand for a 24 MP camera and kit zoom? No thank you.

"(in 2004 or 2018) has much relevance to image quality." The more pixels the merrier for us bird and landscape shooters :^) It's not a subtle difference either.

Superior image quality in every way to this overpriced Leica rig is 2004? Wow! I stand corrected.

derfotograf: So you complain about some 8 or 9% tax.

In Europe you pay between 19 and 22% percent tax on each and every product you purchase, not matter how and where, online or in a local shop. That's ⅕ of the total product value. Can we complain? No. No way. Now if I would tell you about our income tax you would turn away and weep bitterly - it's up to 49%. In addition there are indirect taxes, i.e. for sugar, beverages, etc. It doesn't end there. We also have to pay for TV and Radio, even if we do NOT have any receiver.

You guys can be lucky to live in the USA or CDN. Really, I am envious.

Don't be. We don't get $hit for our tax money here but a bloated military sucking dollars away from everything we desperately need. You have free education, health care, perfect roads, etc., etc.

Reilly Diefenbach: The best continues to get better.

Capture One absolutely does not have better fine detail or better control of highlights and shadows than LR Develop. And you don't get Photoshop for your $300, without which most photogs will never get the best out of their pics.

Class A: Adobe provides a "transformative digital experience" alright. They turn calm photographers into raging, cursing, software haters. :)

When it comes to shoddy quality control, other software companies can learn a lot from Adobe.

Utter nonsense. CC runs perfectly on desktop and tablet. No other software even comes close. 500 shots close enough to export in one click. My time is worth the $10 a month for the Auto feature alone.
