So DPReview is now a rumor site as well?

Steven Lyons: Wow, who thought it was a good editorial decision to publish a review article using Puerto Rico as a location (regardless of when the photos were shot). Much of the island likely does not exist as it is being portrayed in the photos. Many lives were lost, people are still suffering with power and water in short supply and the natural environment has been forever altered. Stunningly tone deaf.

This is aother ridiculous comment. Just because a place was hit by a natural disaster doesn't mean we should erase it from all publications. If anything, this review and its samples show us how beautiful Puerto Rico was, and will still be. Besides, this is an equipment review article, can't we just treat it as is?

On article Sony announces lightweight FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS lens (297 comments in total)

I hope this will be better than their 24-70 f/4 and 16-70 f/4 (for APS-C), which as I understand are subpar despite the Zeiss badge.

Just a funny thought: I have the Canon 7DII, if I get the A7RII, I will have R2-D2

This may mean that I will finally be able to afford the A7R II.

Didn't they also want to ban these from carry-on?

They might as well just ban travel altogether.

An entry-level digicam will suffice.

Glen Barrington: I want a camera that straps to my head and all I have to do to take a picture is look at it, and yell "SHOOT! SHOOT!" at the top of my lungs. Think of the great street photos we could get! Everything else should be taken care of.

I can picture you being confronted by armed security personnel while yelling "shoot! Shoot!".

I think Karma is more important, but she can be ornery sometimes.

On article Nine tips to help you win at photography competitions (100 comments in total)

I looked at these pictures and can't help but think that the #1 rule is that the selections are very subjective and even arbitrary. Some of these pictures I consider to be mediocre and boring at best.

(It is not clear from the article if these are all winning photos or the author just wanted to use these to make a point, in particular #8 is really bad and the author seems to use it negatively to illustrate his point. If that's the case, then it is also bad writing for not making thins clear. Nonetheless he seems to use most of them positively.)

On article Sigma Announces 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens (154 comments in total)
In reply to:

alcaher: Interesting move by sigma. I think its going to sell quite well.
For those long hikes and walks on the mountains and woods i used the nikkor 70-300 but this new lens might get alot of attention because of that extra 100mm reach.

@chaos: where do you get a 1.3x TC? Is that a rhetorical statement? With TC you will lose IQ and aperture too.

In reply to:

Howard: What does the 80D have over this one besides FPS?

AFMA is the only feature that has any significance. In real life usage, what difference does pentamirror vs. pentaprism make? I've used cameras from the Rebels to 7- and 5- series ones, the difference is insignificant.
