On article Nikon Coolpix P1000 Review (658 comments in total)

Used p1000 yesterday at Nikon CES booth.
Even though it is unbalanced at 3000mm and slow to zoom it certainly not slow focusing. I was taking pictures of people in the dark hall without any problems. What is interesting is that p900 could not focus on the same people.

I the government or entity is bad and someone badmouths it with merits then that person deserves the medal not to be imprisoned or killed. His only stupidity was that he went there.

So what you are saying is that if that photographer is stupid he deserved what is coming to him?

Hehe. Many canned goods come from China sold in the regular supermarkets too. There is possibility of the poison in these cans too.

Why grocery stores? Local grocery stores do not get food from China. Clothing can be bought made in USA.

SushiEater: For the Sports designation it might be sharp and all but it will not focus fast. And it weighs too much. As far as being Trio with 14-24mm and 24-70mm, 24-70mm doesn't even perform well unless Sigma will have V2 soon.

That is because you are pre-focusing. But the initial focus acquire, especially from close to far subjects, will be slower.

Except other modern Sigma lenses are NOT focusing fast. When it comes out test it against Tamron and you find out. And how do you know that new Sigma is sharp, OS works great and fast and accurate. Sigma did not allow taking pictures with it.

My 70-200mm G2 "developed" a scratch. Complained to Tamron and the next thing I know I got the shipping label. Sent the lens and they fixed it in one day and 3 days later I got it back so it took about a week in total.
Now, Tamron needs to recall all G2 lenses and fix the the switch problem. Switches move all by "themselves".
As far as future development they should make 18-120mm FF lens preferably F4 or brighter.

I am wondering if BT will shorten battery life even further.

Actually I bought these this year at the same time as WPPI in February, I just remembered.

I bought two Litra Torches for $99 last year. Litra is offering 20% right now.
According to the review Litra is brighter and last at least twice as long. Also, color is not correct on Lume. Like I said before the only negative for me is that I have to re-charge it constantly. BTW, I complained about it and Litra sent me another unit for free to shut me up. Nope, not shutting up. Also, Litra comes with the diffuser, Lume's diffuser is extra.
BTW, B&H has two Litras for $117. Wait for the major event and it will drop to $99.

Check out Litra Torch. It is better in many ways but still has the battery self-discharging problem. Cheaper too. Two are $99.

Bob Jameson: Other than it's waterproof or has bluetooth on the more expensive version, and slightly smaller, how can it be better than this one?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0098G9LHU

- Replaceable AAA battery
- More than 2x the amount of light
- Infinitely adjustable setting and has diffusers
- Expandable
- Only $18

Lume Cube is smaller than 3 AAA batteries and waterproof. If you don't care about the size than Neewer is better.
