On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion (502 comments in total)

"I like knowing that my lenses are true to their focal length"

I'd say this is the number #2 reason I switched to FF. #1 reason is that Canon doesn't make an L-quality wide-angle zoom for APS-C. If you want to shoot landscape you're stuck with the 10-22. Not a bad lens but mine constantly had little problems. It's was clearly lower build quality.

Jeff Greenberg: If Getty licensed enough of your flickr images to allow you
to quit your day job & shoot stock full time, raise your hand...
How about enough to buy a very large memory card...?
A Happy Meal???

Maybe your images are not marketable?

On article Time magazine showcases Top 10 photos of 2012 (147 comments in total)

Time is obviously judging the content not the execution. Without a back story none of these are particularly good photographs. We are presented with a camera-phone snapshot of a boy crying. Why? Did his soccer team lose? He dropped his ice cream? Oh his father was killed. How? Was it a lawnmower accident? Oh he was killed by a Syrian army sniper. Ok now I get it. Yes that's a "Photograph of the Year"!

Time is in the business of selling human tragedy. This is what they reward. The technical execution of the photograph is secondary.
