HeyItsJoel: I have an iPhone 7 and after my 2 years is up, I'm reverting back to iPhone 6. I hate that I don't have a audio jack on my damn phone.

Yeah, well I would still like to use my Sennheisers with my phone without a silly, already-lost-mine, dongle!

Are you related to DaveE1? You think alike in a not-so-good way.

HeyItsJoel: I don't think this is 'microscopic.' Details on a peacock feather can be seen with the naked eye. You can look at this kind of detail even with a magnifying glass. Microscopic indicates a view on a cellular level. Just sayin'.

@oysso: I agree. I stand corrected.

@Eric Hensel: Does your arrogance know no bounds? You just agreed that you were proven wrong.

I have peacocks running around freely in my neighborhood in Pasadena and they shed feathers all the time. I pick one up and with a magnifying glass, I can see the details presented in the photos above with my naked eye. Therefore, it's not microscopic, is it?

I like it when he said to listen to your gut and not worry so much about gear. Because the important thing is getting the photo.

So true.

daddyo: If in fact, this is a 'Q-tip', it is totally biodegradable. The tip is cotton and the shaft is a paper product.
All this angst, by a bunch of people owning and buying plastic filled cameras and lenses produced by smoke belching factories in China.

Moral of the story: buy stuff either 'Made in Japan' or nothing!

jambalawa: Just clicked on link to see what a q-tip was... oh you mean an ear bud...

ear buds are headphones.

Geez. When I read the word "tragic" and saw a Q-tip, my first thought is that it came from personal items aboard a plane crash that exploded and the remains finally settled at the bottom of the ocean.

Who would think of such a thing? I'm a sick basterd.

dbateman: The dpreview article is actually wrong.
From google translate he said the following:
"In addition, from the customer base, Nikon's entire coverage of the crowd is very wide, from the primary, enthusiasts, senior to professional users, then this is the biggest advantage of Nikon, like Olympus, Sony, Fuji they can cover Just a small part of the real professional people to use their camera, has not yet seen. Their customer base is limited, it is in the development of products, even if it is retro version, it is only to meet some of these people's preferences, they can only do so to the extent. "

Which may or may not be more insulting. Either no real professionals use Olympus micro four thirds, sorry Kirk Tuck. Or interpreted as there is only a very small number of professionals using the products. Both however are wrong. But he did not say no professionals as dpreview claims.

Somebody done screwed up at DPReview. Wonder who's going home early today..... like, for good?
