Qualcomm has been having a hard time gaining traction. I hope this helps. Not really expecting much but can hope.

Reminds me of the blur i get with the 400mm DO II lens. Nasty!
Good OOF backgrounds make a lens IMO.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (766 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reactive: I think Sony's attempts to gain a foot in the sports arena could possibly be flattened when Canon and/or Nikon release their own mirrorless offerings, which would of course accept existing lenses. The pros will happily wait around a year or two for a few extra fps. As for Olympus' attempts to use the word 'pro' all around the E-M1 MkII, that must surely be doomed if a pro's prime [sorry] concern is having the same subject separation as their current combination.

I agree "Sbu", people don't give Olympus the respect they deserve. They are committed and have an excellent product.

Personally I don't believe Canon or Nikon can compete with Sony.

On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (464 comments in total)

10-1 if a hardware fix is required, it is because of antiquated hardware to begin with.

garyknrd: Canon and Nikon are starting to get an attitude adjustment.

Problem is they won't heed the warning sign's.

Canon's answer is: I'm #1. I will push out small meaningless changes, you will buy, and thank me for it!

@Rainersen, I hope you are right. I am selling off my Canon gear hoping to get a good price for my lenses.
Being a Canon shooter I am ready for a change. Looking forward to the possibilities.

Thankfully at this point I think I have other options. Until a few months ago there was not an option for me. Now? We will see.

I would like to have a MF system before I get too old to put it to good use.
Just to try it out and play with.

I would buy this before I would but the 7D II.

Peiasdf: Nikon, Pentax, Panasonic and Olympus are on the way out. Nikon and Pentax because they are small company and stick with DSLR when the market is fast moving away. Panasonic and Olympus because they pick the wrong sensor size. A size that's boxed in by super compact 1" and cheaper APS-C and FF.

Olympus is not going anywhere but up! IMHO

In reply to:

garyknrd: With PS and the new noise or de-noise software, IMO it makes current upgrades a tough sale.

You are lucky to have such good sensors. ISO 8000-12800? Those are ISO's I would never dream of. For me 3200 is max. And the software does a good job for me at that level. I shoot with Old cameras.

I cannot wait until Magic Lantern brings usable 4K to the Mark IV in a few years. Then I will buy a used one. Thanks Canon.

I have a feeling RICO is regretting the purchase of Pentax from Hoya. Hind site, but looks like Hoya got rid of it in just the nick of time.

garyknrd: I headed over to look at the stock! Evidently the market has not reacted to the news or it is BS?
P/E is strong and earning are good.
Love to see a panic in a stock like this for a good buy, ain't happening here.
IMO you will see Canon start sliding before the Micro 4/3 biggies will.
Canon is desperately trying to find a good alternative.

Hope you are right "Ultimax" time will tell.
Never know "not k" sometime the market reacts crazy. Look at the Mexican stocks. Trump was elected and they took a nose dive for no reason other than talk. I agree Panasonic is not hurting at all.

When I read reviews like this I think of this guy.

He has some views on consumer spending, The way the wealthy people and company"s operate and advertise I happen to share his views.
I think consumers need to be informed to make better decisions . So, I like this article.
