but... but... too bad... most photographers who were using canon/nikon were wearing sony "alpha" vest...

post your or raw file with meta data files here so that people know what i am talking about.... "Unfortunately it gets converted to sRGB for the web" <-- if this in rgb format, it look much like CRAAAAPPPPP
I've looked at the images you've posted to CR and if you're proud of them then I'll just say that we have very different tastes in photographs or what makes a photograph good.
- neuro: have shared knowledge via discussion and have contributed times to provide good examples.
- aglet: nothing but trying to bash canon, talk crap and take crap images (A2BArt.com - moving your imagination )
- dilber: ditto (same exact the next previous one, aglet, except link to website)...
note: beside canon, i also like nikon, fuji, pentax... but NOT sony and hp
Let me put it another way:
neuro: bashes every camera/lens manufacturer except Canon, regardless of how good/bad the product is.
dilbert: bashes any company that dilbert sees as having a weak product
[and i am, here in this topic, to let you have a chance to prove that your images are better than my images. and i will prove you wrong...
Are you referring to the images that show up in your posts already on CR?
I propose a poll to see who among the CR members neuroanatomist, dilbert, or Aglet has provided the most helpful/useful/beneficial information to the other members of the forum. The one with the most votes earns a pat on the back, the other two are permanently banned from CR forums. I'll abide by the results if you two agree to do so as well. What do you say, gentlemen...are you ready to put your reputations on the line?
It would seem that you post here for a completely different reason than I do, namely your ego needs stroking.
I post here mainly because I enjoy helping people, sharing knowledge (I enjoyed teaching medical and graduate students, and I rather miss teaching), and good technical discussions in which I can both contribute and learn from others.
Up until the point where you mentioned that you wanted/expected a pat on the back, I might have believed you (that your goals weren't ego driven.)
Yes, a 3 year old camera is a 3 year old camera, but as long as your camera is the still current model, your resale value will not drop as quickly as a model that has a replacement model on the market... When a new model is launch, the price of the older model will drop even if the different between the new model and the old model is just the colour of the camera... A model with a replacement model in the market will sound older than it really is.
Have a nice day.
I feel sorry for Nikon owners.
It doesn't matter what model they buy, even when first released, as a few months down the track, Nikon will bring out a new and improved version of it making your current model obsolete and now worth substantially less than it cost you. Remember the D600 then the 610?
Canon does hang onto models much longer, and hence they have better re-sale value later on as say, after 3 years, your Canon may be just superseded, but if you had an equivalent Nikon, it would be 3 models old and practically worthless.
I'm not saying that Nikon cameras are no good, in fact, they are very good indeed, but constant model updates is not how you keep up the perceived and resale value of products.
It also makes it more difficult regarding spare parts too, as many models mean lots of parts and distributors only have so much space and money for parts.
I feel sorry for people who buy cameras based on how much they can sell them for.
If your camera is in good enough condition to be sold as "mint" or "near mint" condition then you obviously haven't used it very much.

13280 posts of not contributing anything new to the conversationI'm just pointing out that the 2 aspects, image-quality vs getting-the-shot, do not embody exactly the same criteria as they are generally priorities for different situations, not necessary directly comparable.
'Getting the shot' ALWAYS trumps sensor-dependent image quality. ALWAYS.
honestly, i do love fuji cameras. however, either one of the following will work:
1. if one are willing to learn about photography and have fun with all its challenges , dslr with optical viewfinder would be the camera he/she should buy, or
2. if one WOULD NOT LIKE to learn about photography, then a mirror-less camera should be the one that he/she will pick up since:
a. you get what you see which is, to me, no challenge and fun, and
b. ease of use (even a kid can get a right exposure after less than an hour of learning.)
if i have to buy a mirror-less so that my wife can also use, fuji x-pro1 or fuji x100s will be the one that i am going to buy since i think it does offer, sort of, optical viewfinder. fuji xt-1 (my friend lets me use his for few times) is a wonderful camera, but too bad, it does not offer optical viewfinder like the other two... hopefully fuji offers both again in the future...
it is just my personal thought and i am not a pro either...
I feel differently. Photography is about photography. It is not about the difficulty with which photos are taken. Photography to me is capturing beauty, telling stories. I am impressed by photos, not with the technique with which the photo was taken unless the technique itself is creating magic.

Dilbert, Canon Rumors is a Canon equipment related website and forum. Who cares about Nikon?!
Spread useful information and experience about Canon gear. But don't bother us with Nikon.
No, but they don't need to because the ST-E3-RT works as advertised on every camera every single time.
Every camera? Well, afaik I know the Canon original does have some issues with pre-2012 camera bodies.
As you have guessed, even as a vocal critic of the Yn I cannot help but mention that the missing Mac compatibility is known before purchase. Otherwise I'd like to make the case for Linux fw upgrade support :-)
No, not issues, AS ADVERTISED, actually it works better than as advertised, the sync speed is better for one.
