On article How to buy used gear (and not get burned) (141 comments in total)

I bought two lens ( nikon TC1.5x and sigma 100-300 F4) from KEH. While their service is exceptional and they accepted returns, Nikon barely made any change and Sigma was a garbage. Either they did not do any testing or my canon rebel was not in alignment with Sigma.

In 2007 - 2011 every photo from Blackberry looked better than every photo from iPhone I owned. From 2011-2017 every photo in Samsung/google phone looks better. And we know Apple failed both in AI & machine learning while google, microsfot did a great job. So this article is plain wrong.

Biggreydog: Do people REALLY buy a dslr and then use it to shoot stills of moving bicyclists using live view? Holding the camera out at the end of their arms? Really?
Dpreview seems to love Canon for improving live view in all their models, without doing much at all for viewfinder focusing.
I use live view when the camera's on a tripod, for macro and long lenses. For 99% of my photography, improvements to live view are a waste of engineering.
Thanks for nothing, Canon.

They want to do 'dad's camera. Your daughter/son performs in school program, you take video or photo using live view. It will sell well, despite not a real weapon

Now the contest is clear. Monkey vs Robots.

Humans? No, for next few years they will comment in social media until robots take over it too.

Among the SD cards I used, Lexar was most stable and solid by big margin. The next was Sandisk and Kingston,Trannscend. Later came Samsung.
It is sad to see it going away, but mostly I did not find Lexar in BB or other stores. The market is dirt cheap and surviving is hard.

jaykumarr: Would it be more interesting to post comparison photos taken with 27mm or so?

BBQue,
I hope you are not trying to say if I take two pictures, it will cover 75% + 75% = 150% of this . right ?

The purpose of wide angle is it makes somethings possible, which would be impossible without and it changes **perspective**

The DPreview reviewed Canon 100-400L II . But nothing to compare. I request Dprview to do a comparison or review of Nikon 80-400 or This Sigma here.

Nikola Goranov: Considering the fact that a firearm or a explosive can be attached and used on/from a drone, any violation of our private properties by a drone could mean a serious threat not only to our privacy bur also to our personal safety. It won't be that long until foreign or domestically cultivated terrorists will learn and attempt to use drones. They do it as we speak around Mosul in Iraq.... Just imagine what would happen if there is a family gathering or a wedding, etc... I don't want to sound pessimistic but this is the world we live in. Please don't blame anyone who uses his shotgun in order to keep these 21st century's uninvited guests away.

There was an attempt to bombard with help of drone, the attempt was thwarted. It will be common mode of attack. Easy, safe one.

Apparently Leica is not good in creating mediocre lenses. :-) .
They have expertise in state of the art lenses only.

Mariano Pacifico: Aha! Ha! Ha! No wonder big cameras are losing out to cellphonecams because cellcams got better technology that DSLRs, 4/3rds, APS-Cs and those 1-inchers. For $750 cellcams you get:
1. slow mo
2. 4k display
3. Front and back lenses
4. 960 fps
5. Geotags
6. Pay my credit cards
7. text my Mom
8. Check my trust accounts
9. 5-axis stabilization
10. 50 auto-focus points

All pocketable .... and, oh, don't forget it is splash proof and shock-resistant ... wheeew ! Oh, it tells me what streets to take and tell me the weather and traffic .... and it talks to me, too !!!

12. You can share into facebook right away.
13. You can search the image with instagram and understand others have taken better photos.
