On article Canon EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS II USM sample gallery (132 comments in total)

Seems like a nice lens for the price.

Those Canon reds though... they hurt my eyeballs.

I have it on good authority that to celebrate their 100th anniversary Nikon is going to release their 100th version of its 18-55 zoom lens

Maybe next year they can release a slightly updated 101 year anniversary with one different scene and then pretend its completely new

;)

I'm clearly entitled to at least 1 billion for the flatulence that was inflicted on me from their Barbacoa beef. I suffered and so did all those in close proximity. Perhaps a class action group lawsuit is warranted...

Retzius: Its the same body as the D5500... not sure where this smaller body thing is coming from

it is 5 grams lighter because they removed a feature, the rear ir receiver

Indeed the dimensions according to Nikon are identical. The D5600 is just the D5500 with Snapbridge, in camera time lapse, and some enhancements to the touch screen interface, and 5 grams less weight due to no rear IR port.

Thats it...

They should offer kits with the VR version of the 70-300 AF-P lens. Including the non-VR version will only result in disappointed newbies who get blurry pictures because they don't understand the limitations of the lens.

I respect a lens that is so large it removes the size advantage of the mirrorless body to which it is attached.

bravo

Charrick1: I have been saying for years that Leica is a total rip-off, is in no way about "pure photography" (an idiotic term in itself which is usually synonymous with "We didn't put any R&D into video mode, and we're proud of that"), and is rather just betting that rich people with little sense will fall for their products. By the way, I don't even believe this lens is the sharpest 50mm. I would bet that if tested, my Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art stopped down to f/2 would perform better than the Leica which has a maximum aperture of f/2. Leica's niche is not "photographers who desire the best", but rather rich point-and-shooters without a brain.

To be fair, you could say the same thing about any luxury product. They sell to your emotions, not reason.

If one could take this new red lens and put it on the new camera covered with red ping pong paddle rubber and then the new red strap from the explorer package one may reach a level of consumerist Nirvana only achieved by former executives of now defunct Lehman Brothers.

Leica finally jumped the shark!

On article Canon is selling a gray version of the Rebel T6 (147 comments in total)

All kidding aside, I wonder if this is a not so subtle hint that Canon will be moving to a mirrorless Rebel from this point on and decided to make their last dslr Rebel look just like their first as an homage to its success.

or not.

On article Shaking up the market: Pentax K-70 Review (342 comments in total)

I like the camera. It seem to be very well balanced.

After looking through the sample gallery I came to a few conclusions:
1. the ooc camera jpegs actually look very pleasant
2. the 18-135 also seems to make very nice images with neutral contrast and a surprisingly pleasant bokeh
3. the 15mm da prime seems like a real cracker of a lens
4. the 18-135 and new 55-300 would make a very nice set of weather resistant travel lenses

On article Nikon reportedly eliminating 1000 jobs in Japan (518 comments in total)

Meanwhile, next month they will introduce the D5600 which will be almost exactly like the D5500 except for 1-2 minor differences. Then they will have a meeting trying to figure out why it wasn't well received...

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
