kawasakiman: What most people don't understand is that mac and pc are completely different, I've worked in the computer industry for 25 years now and I can tell you now, hand on heart, there has never been a decent windows operating system!!! I've used them all and to be honest they are all rubbish. Over complicated, unhelpful disappointing and flawed operating systems. I was a mac hater till 12 years ago when I bought my first iMac as my own personal computer, I'd recently bought a Canon 1D camera and wanted a reliable machine to use for photo editing. I paid £1400 for that mac and I sold it 2 years ago for £400 and it still works athe same as the day I got it. Admittedly it's slow against my new 27 inch retina screen iMac (which by the way is amazing to look at)

You try and sell a 10 year old pc.....most are scrap probably but I doubt you would get £4 for it let alone £400!!!!

Neither of my iMacs have faulted in any way, basically what I'm saying is, they just work.....big deal they are short on ports, go buy a USB hub....

Yes they are expensive, and I agree there is no need for them to be expensive, but your paying for the reliability and styling.

Once you've had mac, there's no going back!!!!

Because windows PCs are cheap!!! That's why companies go for windows.

Besides, macs are for people who don't want to mess about with the operating system or config files etc etc.....these are all things that trash windows.

For the average user on the street, macs are easy to use, yes they seem as they do everything for you, but isn't that what users want???? Tell the computer to do something rather than it blue screen at you or say....not responding....anyone says to me that they haven't had any problems with Microsoft operating systems are stretching the truth.

cactuseskimo: My experience with PC's for several years is that they always slow down considerably after a couple years. They get super "fudgey" and every time you go to open a program, you only half expect it to work. All kinds of annoying little errors and what-not. Also, wireless printing with a PC is probably the most annoying experience ever. I've only had my MAC for a little more than a year, but so far, so awesome! We will see.

But the Mac OS isn't messy like windows, Mac OS looks after itself!!!!

turbsy: What are some people doing with there PCs to get into so much trouble? In all my years with PC I have had maybe two or three issues that at most required a reboot. I have nothing against Mac but I really don't understand the windows issues.

That I don't believe!!!!!!!!!

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) sued him on behalf of the macaque in 2015.

How can this be legal????? I'd better turn off my wildlife camera.....I don't want the squirrels and badgers suing me!!!!!!

He should counter sue the macaque for not paying him for the camera rental!!!!!

On article Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lab Test Review (268 comments in total)

Does what it does for the money, using it on a 1DX and I'm quite satisfied with it. I don't find it a problem hand holding for long periods, need to stop it down to get sharp images but not a problem for my 1DX, up the ISO and carry on shooting. £450.00 new off eBay, a bargain!!!

Who cares????? Big deal so it focuses in low light.....I'm not into taking pictures in the dark!

How about revisiting the old Canon eye tracking focus. I'm sure the technology of today could really bring it back up to speed.

5 grand for a camera!!!! come on, do these cameras really cost that much to make? I understand that the R&D for the technology is expensive, but the base camera was developed years ago, these so called "new" cameras are just upgrades with newer chip and processor technology. I'm sure they cost around a quarter of the price to manufacture, maybe less? but if they sold them at a reasonable cost, I know they would sell 1000 times as many units. Drop the D4 to £2000 and then I would snap someones hand off for one. But these big companies are greedy, yes if your a professional and making a living from these cameras, then £5000+ seems reasonable I suppose, but us "enthusiasts" would love the top quality images, built like a tank, all singing all dancing cameras, but at the over inflated prices.....Nikon, you can just forget it........
