Sad to hear this news. They employees at the Oak Brook IL store was awesome. Very helpful, friendly and always went out of the way to help. Their paper backdrops were great and their Monolights were great as well. Wish I bought another one.
Saw a post in here about arrogance at smaller stores. Found the same thing as well. I have a local store in Glen Ellyn IL that will remain nameless (Starts with a P, ends with a "J's" and no letters in between) that had the worst customer service I have ever seen in a photo shop or other business for that matter. They would rip Canon users for not buying Nikon and always talked down to people. Every employee was an a** basically. I would listen to them talk to customers and just laughed. Talking down to people was their expertise. Their prices were ridiculous as well.
Deleted as well.
CameraLabTester: Wondering how the resale value of the 7D will be affected.
An aging camera just got a massive adrenalin shot.
So from now on... brand new 7D buyers should check for version V2.0.0 before purchase.
At another site that has a huge buy and sell, prices are slightly higher. I have been checking.
makofoto: Cool ... Joel is my son Max's instructor at Sarah Lawrence College!
Makofoto, your son's work is excellent! Very cool stuff.
D200_4me: Somehow I think the pros who make a descent living from their photography will not find the D4's ISO capabilities a hindrance to their ability to deliver pro results. A lot of people on here just need to go out and start making photos instead of fretting over a camera's specs night and day. I promise you'll be a lot less stressed if you stop worrying about whether or not you have a better camera or lens than everyone else.
It finally clicked when I first saw Weston's work. Pure brilliance. I gave my son Weston as his middle name. Wish I could afford the book!
