Clicking on the link shows a discount only to $2,399, not $1,999.
I see $2099 – $100 = $1999.

How "known" are Reikan for this - just to you, perhaps?
Your credibility for posting this is not very high, given that this is your very first post on the CR forum.
Its credible - and I'm not the only one: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51968804
- you can find more on the net.
Could you please post a photo you took using the Angle Finder C handheld? Thank you.
I'm unsure if this deserves a new topic, so I will post this here.
I was just casually looking through my Facebook feed and saw a new DxO Mark post. It compares the Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS to the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and the Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED (link).
I've noticed a few times that certain lens scores do not match up with the actual sub ratings they receive. This latest post takes that a step further. The Sony lens receives a higher score than the Canon, yet in the sub-ratings (sharpness, transmission, etc), the Canon beats it in every category.
Being a trio of zoom lenses though, the rating varies also by focal length (plus of course aperture). DxO Mark's data however also only proves that the Canon copes throughout its range better than the other two. Notice the Canon's graph has less a smaller red zone than the other two here.
Does anyone know what's going on here?
Edit: I also just noticed the Nikon has 1 point more than the Canon, even though it also has a worse score in every measurement!
Anyway, the point I tried to make is that 70%-80% of the market have a bigger influence on product development than 20-30% and that it's kind of arrogant to think that US-buyers will determine the direction of future development of Asian companies like Canon and Nikon.
Meh nostalgia, it was a pain in the ass setting it up
One stand you might consider is the Manfrotto 420B.... The only reason I don't have one is that I have the Manfrotto 024 boom
...you pay a lot for that 1stop at 400 or even more extreme
I was wondering if anybody knew exactly what "maintenance service" I should expect if I send them a camera &/or a lens?
I also have to say that I envy you for shooting birds at a typical distance of 10m. I rarely have the chance to get that close except for ducks, geese and other very tame birds in city parks and the likes. In fact I would say that 20-25m is more like my typical working distance.
The America’s (as in 2 continents) have a combined market share of 29% so the US share will probably be below 20%.
If the other 80+% are willing to spend money on these systems the US share is basically irrelevant for “advancement in technology”.
Emerging markets like China and India will become far more important if they keep on growing.
The US population is about 317 million (little over 4% of the world population)
China: 1,360 million (19%)
India: 1,241 million (17%)
