Nikita66: ugh,, would rather have a faster superzoom. say an 18-135 2.8-4

70 is not 135, thus your comment is irrelevant ,

love the idea of this 14 1.8.

Now, pleeeease do an APS C version:: compact 10mm 2.8 - but with removable hood and filter thread.

Nikita66: Nice footage.
Regarding air travel, the lack of progress is disappointing. Basically, flight times between cities haven't changed since 1960. That's 57 years of no progress.

Sure, the SST for awhile, but the airlines basically shelved it because they didn't want to invest in it. Now that fuel costs are down, and in my opinion, down to stay, someone should reincarnate supersonic commercial flight.

There seems to be a market for "prohibitively expensive." The average transaction price for a new car purchase continues to increase at a rate that outstrips the average annual income increase. And it's shocking how many German cars sell for between $70 and $100K, Some people have enough money for faster flight.

re the sonic boom; that was basically confined to the ocean, as far as I know.

And Toni, the airlines may have benefited from incremental tech upgrades, but as everyone knows, customer service continues to decline as they nickle and dime passengers to death while their knees are jammed into the seat in front of them. To a passenger, a 757 doesn't look, feel, or sound much different than a 707, as I remember it.

Flying is awful these days.

stratman1976: So, now everyone can finally stop whining that Nikon does not have any wide angle options for APS-C. 😜
Uh oh, no UWA/WA primes yet..😮

No "GlobalGuy," there are no DX-only UWA primes. That's the problem for serious DXers. Personally I'd like a 10mm 2.8 DX prime, for example. Only Samyang offers this, but they didn't get some features "correct."

Nikita66: Nice to see something wide for DX, but I'd rather pay more for the Tokina 11-20 2.8.
I really wish for a prime, a DX 10mm 2.8, pleeeease, for indoor, no-flash.

Thanks for the sarcasm. Just taking the opportunity to point out, as many have, that Nikon's DX lens lineup is full of gaps.

Samuel C: The inability for humans to think beyond their own self, their own self-interest, is stunning. I'm constantly amazed by demonstrations of just how deep and wide an individual's ego can extend. Someone below said "it's not my problem when people are idiots" to paraphrase. Really? I'd guess a full half of your day is spent dealing with the consequences of human idiocy. If humans weren't idiots we wouldn't need street lights or seat belts or constitutions or laws. There's too much to know, too much to think about, and too many people don't care even a little about thinking.

I can't argue with your ultimate logic, but you expect too much of the world.

In the above "issue," a person stands on a lifeless track for a couple of minutes. I just don't think you're going to accomplish much by calling half the population idiots, even if it's true.

Nikita66: Ridiculous concern. Assuming this is the ex-Santa Fe LA-SD line, Surfliner trains are A, infrequent (30min @ peak hours, hardly at all otherwise), and B, quite audible even with the ocean crashing below. If it's the coastline north of LA, there are even fewer trains.

Many other issues in life worth worrying about, not this.

huh? "...didn't evolve to easily cope with access to billions of stupid people 24/7"? Insulting, angry and incomprehensible. There's your evolution.

On article Hands-on with Ricoh's compact Pentax KP (634 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nikita66: DPR: The article lead mentions 'compact' and 'mini' and yet I still don't have an idea of the size. None of the pictures help. What would help is a side by side with a well known Canon or Nikon entry level APS-C DSLR.

Further, you don't get to the price until the 14th frame. Yeah an Amazon price is listed above, but I can only assume that's the MSRP.

So annoying the basics are buried so deeply or ignored in a new product article.

Yes, my point is DPR should be more clear/upfront in explaining the basics; the point isn't that I can find it elsewhere.

But having checked the camera-size site, it turns out that this new "mini" DSLR is actually bigger and substantially heavier than a D5600.

I am not Russian, but I will say Russia is much better, in many ways, than you might think. And, more to the point, it doesn't make my criticisms of the US any less true.

Dirk Nuary: Why 'Cannon'? not 'Canon'?

because the writer was in idiot; what do you think?

amateurishly written in the first place.
How about questions to determine the professional level of your writer, Brides?

On article Modern Mirrorless: Canon EOS M5 Review (1640 comments in total)

This looks good, like a user-friendly, real camera. Disliked the earlier bar of soap versions w/o EVF.
A link to lens availability would be helpful.

In reply to:

Nikita66: A pathetic chapter in American history. I wonder what political, Trump-like, A-hole come up with this policy?

Perhaps FDR was one of the great presidents, but he failed with this decision. He listened to the wrong generals.

A Congressional commission on Wartime Relocation report concluded that the internment was motivated by “race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership,” and recommended reparations of $20,000 to each surviving internee (1980). The money was eventually paid and both Reagan and Bush (senior) apologized for the detainments.

I wonder what future presidents will be apologizing for Trump’s prejudice, hysteria, and failure of political leadership?

It'd be great if we could learn from history, but we never do.
