Taxes are the price of civilization, which when you factor in the typical american's hatred of them explains a lot about the USA.

Great video, takes a while to kick in, but worth watching.

Monty Python can be applied to pretty much anything:

ARTHUR: Go and tell your master that we have been charged by God with a sacred quest. If he will give us food and shelter for the night he can join us in our quest for the best Canon EF 70-200mm lens.

GUARD: Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen. Uh, he's already got one, you see?

ARTHUR: What?

GALAHAD: He says they've already got one!

ARTHUR: Are you sure he's got one?

GUARD: Oh, yes, it's very nice-a.

sceneIt: Call me crazy but 70-200 is an old fashioned zoom. They should go 16-35, 35-85, 85-300. Unless they can do better with modern technology.

LOL

asdf photographer: They would sell a ton of these if they put an optical zoom on it.

You can zoom with your flippers.

In reply to:

lukecookphoto: Nothing like a post about exciting new EVF technology to bring out the OVF fanboys. Probably enraged people a little more because it's Sony related.

What a bizarre statement Luke. Not everyone likes EVFs. Try not to project your gear neuroses on to others.

Well that's good news because I really dislike viewing the world through current EVFs.

Everything looks fake.

But hey, I fully understand most people love them.

On article Does sensor size still make a difference? (1053 comments in total)

With large sensors my wide angle lenses capture a much bigger chunk of the landscape, and with small sensors I get more pixels on the subject. Those are things that are important to me and I was surprised they weren't mentioned in the article.

It's fantastic that we have so many great choices in camera gear, and wonderful that Sony is leading in a lot of areas. But it's also sort of funny that Canon is kicking butt in its mirrorless segment with an effort that so far seems like they kind of phoned it in. Interesting times ahead for sure.

Are you Sony folks even photographers? Or real people?

In reply to:

tonyz1: Nikon and Canon have both tried this with the complementary mirrorless approach (Nikon 1, Coolpix A, Canon M) and it has largely failed compared to the Sony FE cameras. Very few camera owners have more than one camera system or need that.

Canon mirrorless outsells Sony mirrorless in Japan, so hardly a failure.

Oh, and tonyz1 has not uploaded any photos to their gallery yet.

My god, what incomprehensibly expensive computer graphics program and crack technical squad of digital geniuses did they use to create that diagram?!?

In reply to:

roweraay: I think Canon/Nikon have already run out of time. They need to be introducing a mirrorless design that not only competes with the best that Sony has bought out till date, but also competes and outclasses their legacy DSLR products. The days of incremental baby steps are over. They now need to introduce mirrorless products (cameras and lenses) that will uproot and toss out their legacy DSLR products.

I hope they don't toss out their DSLRs because for wildlife photography nothing Sony offers comes remotely close to what Canon and Nikon currently deliver.

Pppfff. Canon should fix their own cameras before ruining other camera brands.

Sony is on fire so it makes sense that they get a lot of coverage on DPR. No reason to apologize for the focus on them - they have earned it.

And also, the accusations of bias that are flung around here are among the silliest things said on DPR - and that is a crowded field to compete in.
