Okay, so it is obvious they are Canon fans. No issues with that, even though I shoot Nikon. Wouldn't it have been a lot more useful list to show the top 10 most frequently rented items?

How much harder would it have been to make the lens f/1.8 instead of f/2.8?

You can achieve the same thing (less the shift) by mounting an extension tube in front of a wide angle prime. I've done this with a 24mm f/2.8 lens. The results can be very interesting but there is no working distance. The subject will be very near or touching the front element of the lens.

Where is the Nikon D7200 in this roundup?

Sad response from Nikon. They are willing to accept an interview, but avoid as many questions as they can. They did more dodging than answering. Disappointing.

None of the roller derby action images work for me. The backgrounds are too sharp. Need more depth of field separation.

Apparently it takes a class action suit to get Nikon to stand up and take notice.

Wouldn't it be great if they stopped playing the megapixel game and switched to a high quality 4 megapixel sensor? Imagine the dynamic range improvement possible with 4 times as much light striking each photosite.

Hey Nikon, the world does not evolve around Apple gadgets (or NYC for that matter). When are you and others going to wake up and realize that Android smartphones have double the market share as iPhone?

No image stabilization, and no built-in flash? I don't understand. Why leave them out?

Holy cow! Are they serious? $1,700. That is 3 times what I paid for the extremely good Sigma 150mm f/2.8. I can't fathom why it would cost so much more. I don't think they'll get many takers at that price.

Since when does eveyone have an iPhone? Last I checked, Android was outselling iPhone by a pretty large margin. There are 550,000 new Android devices being activated every day. (No, I don't work for Google)
