  • Replied in 100-500
    In my experience, you want the longest reach you can easily access and that means the 100-500. I try to minimize lens changes out on safari. You lose shots and increase dust and quite frankly you ...
  • The recently announced firmware should fix your first issue...
  • I'm no expert, but I have been very happy with my many high end isp monitors from Dell over the years..including my current 30 inch.

  • A used mint low use R3 is more like $5k these days...so the premium for new is much bigger. The R3 is overpriced relative to the competition imo...and you can get substantial discounts off new z9 ...
  • I would tend to disagree. Sony's new A7r5 is below $4k, and nikon's upcoming Z8 will come in at the same price point. That doesn't leave Canon any room to increase the price of the R5ii...it will ...
  • Interesting pick of the Z9 over the A1. The R3 just doesn't cut it because of the resolution...but wait until the R1 is out...although, the R5ii might beat it to market. The R6ii is not a surprise....

  • My bad.
  • Replied in Me too...
    The R3 is a flagship camera, but it is imo wildly overpriced at $6500 vs the A1 or Z9...both of which perform as well with higher resolution. Imo the Canon lineup should be R6ii at $2500, R5ii at ...
  • Replied in Me too...
    I don't think the r5ii will perform quite up to the a1/z9/r3 because of the lack of a stacked sensor, but it should hopefully be able to close the gap...sticking with the smaller form factor is a ...
  • Replied in Me too...
    I was a longtime nikon shooter, everything including d500, d850, d4, d3s....and a z6/z7/z7ii....I had a friend who likes to swap very expensive wildlife gear who sold me his r5 and 600f4, and ...
  • Yes. I've already been offered new ones from authorized dealers for slightly below msrp. My guess is canon will be able to keep these in inventory fairly well.
  • They are below $2k now in mint condition. The R5/6 are great all around cameras with excellent af, fast fps and excellent low light performance. If you are on a budget I'd suggest the R6 because ...
  • Replied in Nonsense....
    The af speed/accuracy on the R5 is excellent, just a teeny bit away from the best of the best...which right now includes the R3, A1 and Z9. Of course those cameras are a tad bit speedier because ...
  • Well with used ones at or below $5k it might be getting to that point! Although I'm also considering the soon to be released 60mp z8...if af is good enough.
  • My buddy is getting his 600tc in the first shipment, likely in the next week or two. Nikon has (finally) been shipping some 800pf lenses, but they are still quite backed up in terms of orders. ...
  • Replied in CL, FB, FM
    I use craigslist, fb marketplace, and fred miranda. The latter is the best but there are costs involved with shipping and/or fees. I have an active cl in my area so have had some success there. FB ...
  • Unfortunately I don't have it yet, but I have two close friends who are pro wildlife photographers that literally shoot all systems...but are nikon shooters at heart. They both went to canon/sony ...
  • I've shot with just about everything, and it's all about hit rate with bif. Can you get perfectly focused bif shots with a z6ii--yes you can. However, if your hit rate with a canon r6 is 85% (I'm ...
  • Probably the only nikon lens I never thought performed very well. Easy comparison beating that lens, I would expect the z mount to do better and it does. The sony shot doesn't look to be exposed ...
  • I'm thinking the z8 may look a lot like the a7r5...maybe even share a version of the same sensor. And my sources tell me the z8 is already being tested with something like 60mp. But who knows.
