Wow - You're opinion of this camera is so low...
So unfortunate for Canon that they didn't consult with you before this dismal antiquated junk went into production!
You are doing the world such an incredible disservice Barnie - Have you considered running for President or something where your immense contributions can be enjoyed by more of the unfortunates that inhabit our needy planet?

memee_meen: Wasted my time reading this article that has nothing but bashing Canon.
Dpr used to create good unbias article to read........

"He's entitled to his opinion..."
LOL - Yeah it is more about the authors sense of himself than it is about the gear...
I think "I'm cool - This camera is junk" six words would have about covered it.

In reply to:

JerryShots: Sigma 15mm fisheye EX, I also have the 50 1.4 D lens.

Bought mine used and very cheap as the non-detachable metal hood is slightly bent. My D800 spins it so fast that it sometimes sticks a bit past infinity and I have to twist it by hand to free up the focusing mechanism (it is damaged).
So it is very tough as well, lol!
The colors can be a little weird, but this is an amazing and versatile lens. There is almost no distortion in a large central region, 180° diagonal field of view but there is that large sweet spot in the middle...
Truth be told it is not sharp on the edges until you stop down.
Even used they are not cheap, but once in a while on Craig's list you can get a deal.
The Rokinon 14mm is a fun lens as well. I enjoy them both very much especially since I paid less that $300.00 for each of them ;) and they shoot the night sky very well!

In reply to:

JerryShots: So two cheaters voted this 0.5 stars!?

The DPR guidance for voting states that 0.5 is a score reserved for a "Poor image that doesn't fit theme or rules"...
Well your image certainly is not 'poor' and certainly fits the challenge rules, so those that voted 0.5 did so out of an effort to cheat or game or sandbag the voting process.
They give the better shots, which they feel are the rightful competition to their own entries a 0.5 score in hopes that their own crappy work will rise above its natural rankness to a place of honor.
So you were robbed a space or so...

On photo By the road in the A single Flower: Requirement: Crop photo to SQUARE challenge (2 comments in total)

I'm going out on a limb here and guessing you just don't bother with rules in general, right?

I mean - How many flowers is the right amount of flowers in a "Single Flower" contests..?
What causes this kind of thing, if I could ask?

Would have been nice to have some details about the camera/lens thingy - But to give a shout out to Google is good too.

Can you give guidance on what is meant by this term...TWO?
Exactly what does two mean in this context anyway?

The truth is clear to see.

Apparently 'Life Boats' don't count...Just like on the Titanic, nor do dinghies and tenders on the decks of other boats or in the water around the other other boats...
So " Images with one boat or more than 2 will be disqualified!" Just turned out to be a lie typed by a dishonest person.
