    Those are delightful. They have all the sharpness and pop that we all love with great lenses.

    The lenses are hurting the NEX, but the recently leaked roadmap shows promise. The NEX-7 is pretty easily the best mirrorless body on the market, but if you want autofocus, the lenses still aren't...

    The price on the 24-70mm is crazy, but not totally unexpected with the huge price hikes Canon and Nikon did with the last 70-200mm upgrades.

    My feeling is no. The small gain in detail is not worth it for the moire. The detail level from the D800 should be incredible. The D800E is more of a special purpose camera for studio use by someone...

    NEX 7 or E-M5 as main kit?

    First off, hi Don, Frank, Peek and the others from when I was here more a few years ago.

    The D3S holds a special place in my heart, but it is jammed into a D700 shaped hole. It kinda sucks to carry such a big thing all the time. I think the answer right now (unless insurance isn't cool...

    Elisha you nailed that one. Those eyes are crazy. Great capture, nice choice to do it in black and white.

    On a totally unrelated note, how did our species survive without pacifier straps?

    Slo40, that is gorgeous.

    Nism, cool, did you stack the boxes up that way or is some sort of toy? The Chuck Taylor as a little vehicle is a nice touch, mine don't look nearly that clean tho.
