Thanks for the heads up, Mt. Spokane! I'm interested in seeing her thoughts.

I was amused by a friend last week who reported that on a recent visit to MoMA in NY it was overrun with tourists taking photos of the art with their iPhones.... (Perhaps, given how crowded it gets, that was the only way they could actually look at any of it.)
From there, it's a short step to skipping the real version altogether, and just mouse-clicking your way through MOMA's virtual tour...
I've heard people in other threads talking about how they don't care about video functionality. I don't get it. How can someone love making images and completely dismiss motion pictures?
I do both and it only seems natural that if you like one you would like the other. I just can't wrap my head around it only wanting one. I can understand people having a preference, but to buy a $3000 body an never shoot video on it? Really?
In my opinion these cameras are set when it comes to photo features. They don't need to get any better than they already are. With maybe one exception, AF speed/accuracy during liveview. It's video features that are far behind where they should be and that should be the main focus right now of these camera manufacturers.
I'm waiting for the 75mp camera from Canon, everything else is just for amateurs. Once I get that, I can FINALLY take the special shots that are locked away in my mind that none of my current sad gear can achieve. Oh I can't wait for that day.
I take a great deal of pictures at my Kids' sporting and school events. Many parents ask me to try and take some shots of their children. I had an idea of posting these event photos on a website much like the companies do in various running races (5k, 10k, marathon, etc.) and earn some money for my gear. What's the best site to accomplish this task? Or would be better to pay someone to develop a website for me?
135mm all the way. I use a 5dmk3 with a 70-200mm2.8 in low light levels all the time. With action you want all the speed you can get. Btw- the 135mmf2 has nothing to fear from any 70-200mm for portrait work. Honestly, sometimes the advise given out is very odd.
$105.50 is really expensive
do i really really need?
what's wrong with a super cheap one?
- You should buy the expensive one to protect your expensive lens.
- You should also buy a less expensive clear filter to protect your expensive clear filter.
- You should also buy the cheap clear filter to protect your other clear filters.
- Don't forget to remove ALL of the clear filters before taking a picture, because they WILL degrade the quality of your images.
Or, you can just use a lens hood to protect your lens properly, and it will actually improve your images, instead of making them softer like a filter does.
The noobs always buy the protective filters because the salesman in the camera store, who makes more profit from a filter than he does from a camera or lens, convinces them they need one... and then laughs his a$$ off when they leave the store.
