Is the D850 the Camera of the Year in Brazil, too?

Why waste time with this misguided pursuit? Photography for most people has little to do with light. It is about Likes.

I'm always struggling with the mechanism that opens the hood of the car.

C'mon! All anyone needs is unlimited time off, a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a comfortable RV with a Harley on the back, one of latest notebooks, and a great wireless carrier. Or something along these lines that suits you in particular, as the case may be! Suggestions, anyone?

Natural progression for mainstream Rebel kit lens shooters. It will sell. It will sell well.

Might a rare handful of DL's actually exist? Even one? Not even perhaps one prototype was ever built, secreted away somewhere?

So ultimately, will we stumble around, dumbfounded and drooling; or sit placidly, dumbfounded and drooling, much the same, but with VR goggles? Will yes and no be replaced by truths and falsehoods?

I don't like this. I don't like anything. I have nothing nice to say about anything. Thanks.

In reply to:

davids8560: The Nikon D850 is the better camera and overall Nikon makes the best cameras. This is not to say there is anything wrong with the Sony a7R III, or that people shouldn't buy it. Sony will never upend either Nikon or Canon when it comes to "pro" gear. Everybody knows it, No amount of hype will change it.

Simple. It has "Betamax" and "Walkman" and "Trinitron" DNA in it. (And some DNA from Minolta, which admittedly redeems it somewhat.)

Sony will not be the usurper. Ever. But they may become the owners. I could see that happening.

Never. Period.

A very interesting and inspiring article. I still enjoy using my Canon PowerShot Pro1. I also have a boxed Fujifilm E900. I think I'll charge up the batteries. Old LX models still fetch a pretty good buck on eBay. I just wish they had viewfinders. Thanks!

I expect any random doofus who knows even half a tin can about photography will do quite alright by this nice little camera. It's just harder for me personally, what with being only half a doofus. But that of course is a different story!
