On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2559 comments in total)

The discussion of viewfinder "Blackout" pretty much reaffirms my belief that the Scorpions were the best band of the 80s

Kharan: AF-P but no electronic diaphragm? Nikon keeps proving they don't get video, or pretty much anything these days... that was an irredeemably stupid decision.

Nikon designs lenses to price points rather than features. My guess is that to hit their price point that had to eliminate that as a feature.

frankly its about time. The canon 10-18 has only been out forever.

I've used Nikons for a long time but I have always felt their software was a mess. For a new user it is not clear what the different programs do or what their purpose of one program is versus another. To make matter worse, there is little to no documentation available other than free user manuals that almost literally do nothing more than describe what each button does. Nikon needs to explain WHY each program is useful, HOW they are used in a basic workflow, and WHAT each program can do for the photographer.

I had a WG-30 and it leaked after getting wet and wouldn't turn on the next day. I sent it to Ricoh and they would not repair stating it was my fault. It seems this is a fairly common occurrence. Buyer beware.

All this will result in is another version of the 18-55mm lens

I just can't click on anything with Jared Polin on it... I could explain why but the title image on the video says everything.

On article Sphere of frustration: Nikon KeyMission 360 review (200 comments in total)

Nikon is still behaving like an analog era hardware developer.

They need to become a digital era software developer to succeed in the coming decade.

Its the Pronea of the digital age.

Old folks like me recognized that right away and knew to steer clear....

So this means "full frame" sensors should be much cheaper this year and drive down the price of "full frame" cameras!

LOL yeah right

On article GoPro unveils Fusion, a 5.2K spherical VR camera (43 comments in total)

I like the concept but the output in the video sample looks like mush.

On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (464 comments in total)

The amount of people that will truly use C-Log in the 5D IV to shoot B roll to match the output of their Cinema EOS Camera is very small and typically work within budgets where they wouldn't even think twice about spending $99 to make their workflow easier.

If they get the AF right this could be a real shot across the bow of Canon and Nikon. Nice work!

On article Nikon D7500: What you need to know (540 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobclark86: Amateur strap lugs, no second card... Still not the end of the world. Better in some ways than my D7100 I use to shoot sports semi-pro with, but worse in just a few ways (I'm not crying myself to sleep over 4 lousy megapixels). I'd be hard pressed to pick between it and a refurb D500 for a few dollars more, though...

What is an "amateur strap lug"? I'm not sure the design of a strap lug designates pro status or the talent that usually goes with it.

On article Nikon D7500: What you need to know (540 comments in total)

12-140? If I read that right that is a 18-200mm equivalent in full frame terms. To be honest that interests me more than the new camera although that looks like a very nice upgrade.

On article Leica offers free fix for faulty AF in some S lenses (92 comments in total)

I have it on good authority that they will be issuing a limited run of 1000 "Goodwill Arrangement" lenses complete with certificate of authenticity to commemorate this remarkable gesture of goodwill. The 1000 lenses will have been verified as truly defective and will come in a display case signed by the CEO, lens technician, and customer care specialist.
