although not very colorful and dynamic, I love the expression of this tired young sparrow after his first flying lesson (which I loved to capture but missed :( )
Like the nice and furry look.

A number of things come to mind:

1. Compacts such as mirrorless etc are getting pretty darn good and are squeezing the market for low-end DSLRs - time for Canon and Nikon to push upwards, dragging their customers with them, to more advanced and more expensive cameras.

2. Getting people into FF opens up the secondary market for higfh quality lenses.

3. Interest in photography has grown absolutely enormously since digital became the norm. This gives a far greater potential market.

4. China and other countries where buying power is increasing exponentially are extremely important. A wider range of models means more potential buyers climb on board.

Canon and Nikon don't care who buys their products. All money smells the same.
This article gives an idea as to what canon india has on mind. Low priced FF dslr should have a big market here if the caon estimate of dslr sales in the coming FY is true

From our lawn in September. This one survived after swallowing the frog

That's a king cobra right?
I wouldn't sleep easy at night knowing one is on the loose nearby...

No it is a rat snake (Ptyas mucosus). It is harmless and feeds on small animals and birds.

Our condolences to CG and his family. We went through the same pain many years back. We understand your grief.


I had a vacation with the family in Nepal last May. I made do with a MkII and a 24-70 and a 50 f1.4. Our trip included a one day trek from Pokhra. Only rarely did I feel the need for a lens beyond 100mm. The same held true for our Bhutan trip where I also had a 70-300 which I did not get to use often except during a small climb.
A polarizer will be very useful. Mine fell off at Chitwan :-[
More important is your health at high altitudes. During my days as an army doctor working in high alti areas I came across three cases of acute high alti sickness. And the onset was rather sudden. All cases were above 11k feet. They were not properly acclimatized. The essence is to take the climbs slowly and enjoy. Extra weight at low oxygen will only increase your physical effort.
Weather is similar to our Indian mountainous regions. October should be fine and cold but the valleys get hot with the day.
Freudanslap mentioned travelling in July. That is the onset of peak monsoon. Be careful of leeches and slides.
My daughter and I hope to do a 4 day trek sometimes in the Annapurna Range. The wife and son are not interested.
Lucky you!!! Have a nice trek.
