Artak Hambarian: Very artful!

Some more synonyms: uninspiring, uninteresting, tasteless, tacky... where did you get your great taste?

Noah: why do you think so? I think that they are artful, since the composition is great, and the meaning is extraordinary, balance is kept very well, both in terms of form and color, has very clear graphical nature, based on architecture. I am happy that I saw these pictures. Aren't you?

In vertical position camera will rotate if more or less substantial lens is mounted, since the bracket does not "hug" the camera. I have similar "universal" for $7.

Artak Hambarian: I have the current version of this lens, and think that it needs to have a tripod collar. This new one does not have it either. Its an omission.

I am serious, its an omission. This is a 300 mm lens = 450 mm on dx (shooting e.g. on d7000). I use long lens y support with current version of this, as well as 300mm f4 fp lens which is also "light". Certainly the latter is seriously sharp, while the zoom is not. Maybe the new version is sharper?

Artak Hambarian: I am curious if you could wear this bag for 5-6 hours fully loaded? Does anyone has such an experience?

Guys thank you very much for your replies. I am looking for a really super comfortable backpack to carry 10 -12 kg gear. It seems this one most probably not very much suitable. Probably F-stop or Clik Elite have answer(s)? My Lowepro Flipside 500 is also suitable for relatively shorter trips.

In reply to:

Artak Hambarian: Olympus, I am honestly waiting for C8080 modern incarnation:
- larger sensor - 1" or could be MFT
- in body stabilization
- could be ted bit larger with 24 - 240 mm lens is enough - no need in superzoom
- GPS and wifi.

Fully agree...

Artak Hambarian: To be interesting as a DX camera for me it needs to be higher MP, e.g. 28-32 MP, instead of high buffer or frame rate, and GPS and all connectivity is needed and even more: should have a wireless network connection, like a smart phone. Certainly tilt touch high res monitor is a big welcome. Even bigger, e.g 5 inch monitor, @4K resolution. Its not a bad idea to look at mirrorless directions as well.

Sure! And this gives priority options for high MP vs High sensitivity!

1. As Roland mentions - the stereo, binocular effect should be an attractive part, that almost no VR manufacturer cares by some strange reason. Turning ones head to see what is behind is of very limited interest. As ShatteredSky mentions, film director, via camera operator leads you to the important action. If you turn your head, you may miss the point of the scene.
2. I will use it, but very rare ultra wide-angle cases need head turning function. I need binocular, camera and a viewer - both should have high enough resolution to match human eye, and that is it for now, before jumping to the next, interactive steps.
In fact many mirrorless cameras have excellent electronic viewfinders that can serve this purpose if executed in binocular, 3D way, why there are no decent stereo viewers so far? And the camera should have two lenses, better zoom ones, that corrects the parallax, i.e. they are parallel, when focusing or looking at infinity and angled otherwise - just like human eyes.

John Clinch: very simple:
1. Crop easier.
2. Watch on my 30" 2.7K display, through toggling between full picture and zooming to 100%, which is easy via ACDSee in the full screen mode. More are the pixels, higher is the zoom to 100%, which is also still sharp. Really enjoyable.
3. With a 5K or higher monitor nicer effect can be achieved with even more pixels.

Exactly the same conversation, I remember, took place years ago re 6MP vs. 10 or 12 MP, at which we can now just smile. Technology develops, and we have not yet reached the limit, and there is no a strict limit, although we are getting closer but not too close to saturation. As it was said by brendon1000 there is lens resolving reserve, and FF sensors' equivalent is the double of that number, i.e. 56 - 64 MP. This is close to what already exists, and manufacturers plan to have even higher resolution sensors - this is already in the pipeline. Also remember that many cameras, e.g. 1" ones render wonderful quality, although their photosite size is much smaller.
Inevitably this effects the low light performance at high ISO, but this seems to me a reasonable compromise, especially in the context of the improvement of the technology constantly leading to better signal/noise ratio.

Yes I know. But look at c8080 aesthetics and ergonomics. Imagine all that specs in that body... i think its really unique.
