About me:

My plan is to ever improve my trade, my hobbies, and my relationships with family, friends, and my God. My trade is teaching Math and Computers. My primary hobbies are lutherie (guitar building) and photography. My God is slow to anger and abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor His anger forever; He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us for our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth so great is His love for those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us. If you have questions or gripes about my God, I always enjoy talking with someone who is a seeker. Rock throwers are rarely convinced of anything spiritual and I can respect their desire to believe differently than myself.

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    Exactly. No question there. But is it the best crop sensor camera Canon could have made? No way. It's a non-compete with their FF and Nikon won't play because they also want to protect their bigger...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    Valid points on its strengths as well as weaknesses. IMO, what we have here is the best APS-C camera Canon was willing to make.

  • Who innovates most is such a forum peeing contest. What ever innovation turns out to be golden is good on its own merit however and the Super Sonic Wave Filter that came out in 2004 solved the...

  • I agree. There are a lot of really good deals on very capable cameras right now. The a6000 in mirrorless and the K3 in DSLRs are exceptional values. That D3300 with kit lens and LR5 for $380 is...

  • I havn't used all these cameras, and I wish I could, but the final selections seem strange. Firstly, no love for the D400? Oh yeah, there isn't one, which means Nikon (and untill recently Canon)...

  • When DiCaprio sank into the icy abyss in Titanic my eyes were dry, but not now. I hate to see a good camera drowned. Fantastic video though. Great hands-on feedback with a cool location and tons...

  • Yeah, what's the price because if it's similar to the A7 series this is looking very attractive. The Olympus 5-axis is fantastic and I think it has been shown to be engineered well in the E-M1 so...

  • I usually don't like special editions, but this one looks amazing.

  • If $450 difference is almost the the same money (and size, weight, and sensor IS isn't really that important to you), why wouldn't you just get a FF for almost the same money?

  • Exactly AshMills, while the 7Dii is a very good camera, it's pretty easy to see that it's not the best APS-C camera Canon is capable of making in the elapsing years since the 7D came out. Nikon...

  • Here's where I think our perspectives really veer away from each other. The FZ200 at ISO100 108mm at f2.8 exposes the same as a D800 at ISO100 with 600mm at f2.8. The depth of field and noise will...

  • That doesn't make sense to me. Let me take the sports photographer example and apply a real camera to it. The FZ200 has a 4.5-108mm f2.8 lens and about a 5.5x crop factor. If I apply your reasoning...

  • I hope others are well entertained and not put off by this discussion. I find it fascinating. Thanks for taking the time to share. Some things I'm still working out in my mind. I get that a 25/1.4...

  • I was talking FOV without cropping. Yes, the Oly has a crop mode too, which reduces the field of view and the subject appears closer. What are you really saying? I know the physical focal length...

  • Also, lens design is going to be different when the light is focused closer to the rear element of the lens. This seems consistent with what I see in mirrorless of all brands. For example, Olympus...

  • Greetings misolo, I actually interested in your feedback. I see your math is correct. The absolute aperture is the size of the aperture entrance for a specific focal length. So indeed...

  • Greetings misolo, I'm interested in your feedback. I see your math is correct. The absolute aperture is the size of the aperture entrance for a specific focal length. So indeed 150/2.8=300/5.6 when...

  • Greetings misolo, I'm interested in your feedback. I see your math is correct. The absolute aperture is the size of the aperture entrance for a specific focal length. So indeed 150/2.8=300/5.6 when...

  • Yeah, I figured that out too after posting. More pixels means more cropping before an image starts to fall apart. However, we were talking about reach and field of view, not crop potential so his...

  • misolo, I think you will indeed be very surprised because your logic is based on Olympus' track record for pro lenses from their legacy DSLR days and the whole point of my comment is completely in...
