Well, about the same price as the 50mm 1.2L, isn't it?
And the Sigma 50 f/1.4 beats them both for $400.

Assuming you're on about the 70-200/4 L IS and the 16-35/2.8 L II, here is a comparison of IQ on an 18MP crop camera - showing the 16-35 at its worst ( 28mm, f2.8 ):
Low light focusing is extremely limited on the 18-55, where on the 22mm, it was hard to find something I couldn't focus on. AF seems kinda... uh, laggy? When you half press the shutter button, there's a slight hesitation that's not on the 22mm.
Pentax's latest toy, the K-3 has more fps, more AF points, more MP, better metering, better viewfinder, USB 3.0, new AA feature ...
Perhaps the Priest could have handled things better, but I wouldn't have.
Here's the rub.
Wedding first. The couple are there to get MARRIED. Thats kind of important to everybody.
I will not call it a meltdown. The priest is very calm.
We do not know whether the photographer has asked the priest's consent BEFORE the ceremony or not. Even worst, the priest may have announce that no photographer is allow in the alter area and the photographer has ignored it. Most of the priest will not allow photography during the ceremony no matter whether it is inside of the church or outdoor. If the photographer is a professional, he should know better.
The priest has the right to ask him to leave whether the photographer is hire by the groom or not.
I read one quote someone made on YouTube that I agreed with. The groom should have leaned into the priests ear and said something like "I'm paying the photographers much like I'm paying you, please continue. And..if you do walk out, I'll sue your ass off, now, please get back to marrying us..."
Dear Drio, my friend. Yes, I will try.
Don't be too enthusiastic, it's really a specialized product for old-school film simulation with some other mixed presets added - it's beyond me how anyone paid $80 for this unless required for a specific purpose.
Economic recovery around the globe will further recover and we should expect a very exciting 2nd half of 2014 for new gear.</p>
Wouldn't bank on economic recovery 'cos the factors causing it aren't going away
Not to make light of a very interesting camera, but I'd just as soon get a couple Pentax WG-3's for that price. I have a W90 that has been in pools, ocean and rain and has macro and time lapse features. I've also had it 200 feet in the air suspended with a kite and strapped to my motorcycle for half a day. It's always in my briefcase at work and slips into a pocket. That said, it's interesting to see Nikon upping the mirrorless market.
For $800 dollars? It's cool. But that much for a fairly mediocre camera? I'll pass...
I'd rather have cleaner pushed shadows at base ISO's, effectively improving DR over slightly less noise at ISO 12800. To me Canon sensor tech is still way behind Sony. I just love pushing shadows and pulling highlights.
Anyone using the old argument of learning the gear better, or bringing fill lights, that is such a joke. A real photog knows that they'll have to push and pull to get the image looking right.
