On photo Sunrise at Mono Lake in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

1Dx4me: congrats, Ed! i have viewed lots of your photos and you do a fantastic job.i lived in california for a long time and one place that i wanted to visit was Mono Lake in winter but i never got around it. you sure captured a nice moment up there. i am very tempted to get a canon 16-35 f4.0 IS, especially when i see quality photos you have taken with it, such as this one. keep up the good work.

Thanks buddy. it's a fantastic lens.

drummercam: Very nice picture. I'm troubled, though, by all of the dead brown pine trees. I'm guessing western pine bark beetle infestation because of the California drought.

yes.. that's right :-(

Mikael Risedal: so many myths are presented here , skin tones, etc.
learn to handle a raw file from a camera
instead of holding on to myths regarding skin tones, and some things can be measured=, DR, color quality, color accuracy etc. nothing that Canon does best

most of the guys who comment are theoreticians. they hypothesize from their cubicles and don't shoot in the real world :-)

grock: I wish they would make these for full frame cameras. When I upgraded to the 5DMkIII a few years ago, i kept my Tokina 11-16 2.8 lens, and in fact I still use it all the time. It's only really usable at 11 and maybe 12 before you get extreme vignetting, but definitely still usable to the point where I haven't bought another extreme wide angle.

so basically its a huge prime 16mm prime and you find that reason enough not to buy A 16-35. OKAY :-)

On article Fujifilm X100T Review (695 comments in total)
In reply to:

VENTURE-STAR: It seems like a reasonably good camera, but a Canon EOS 100 SLR with a fixed (but interchangeable) 24mm pancake lens and slightly better sensor does most of the same stuff for a fraction of the cost. The Fuji only has USB2, no image stabilization, probably needs an adapter to take filters and probably requires very expensive Fuji brand batteries. I really don't see the attraction to this product.

I've owned the original x100 and I now own the SL1. the Fuji sensor is far better especially in low light. I sold the Fuji because of SAB and bought the SL1 because it backs up my 5d3.

On article High-end full frame roundup (2014) (610 comments in total)
In reply to:

TLD: There is definitely something about full frame. My seven year old 1DsMK3 is still my go to camera, while my 1DMK4 only comes out for the occasional shot where high FPS and decent follow focus are required. The 1Ds3 is rubbish at follow focus.

1ds MK III is also rubbish @ iso 1600 and beyond...and it only goes to 3200. used it for five years and only stuck weith it that long because of what it cost.

On article Nikon Df Review (1617 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: It's hilarious that pretty much every camera with a shutter button gets an award on DPR. Some cameras like the X-E1 with its RAW conversion issues, subpar AF even get Gold Awards. The Nikon Df, perhaps because of a crowbarred comparison with the Fuji X cameras on day one ("retro done right") and the reviewer's fondness for the X cameras, gets zero, zip, nada. Lol. DPR was under no obligation to give the camera a good review, but giving it such a high score, but no award AT ALL was frankly a passive aggressive swipe at Nikon and Nikon users, not to mention kind of petty gesture.

I checked the Df out the other day at B&H and it's quite nice. It felt great in my hands, nice a bright VF, and it focused quickly and accurately. One thing is for sure, I'd trade my Fujifilm X-E1 and all my X lenses for the Df, in a second. Retro right or wrong, for me there is just no comparison between these two camera.

you sound like a guy who easily makes big shifts in gear so that could explain it

Basically I have no plans to have brunch this Sunday. It doesn't mean I won't end up having brunch this Sunday.

I have a point for you.
