Doesn't the fact that this woman spoke to dilbert at all tell us something about her taste ?
What is more troubling is a response to such a post. It reminds me of a bunch of kids on a high school bus. One kid says something he believes has some value or is interesting to him. Then a bully berates him and all the bully's worshipers chime in to pile on and win points with the bully. It's become an unattractive aspect of this forum, sadly.
My wife has never bought me anything photo related. I bought things for minefield that we turned into gifts for me... but it would be nice if she simply didn't hide my stuff when she cleans.
Thank you, all. I had no idea of the pent-up demand! Especially after several persons casually recommended that I get a 300/2.8 for BIF. At that point, it seemed that most forumers (??) just went ahead and bought whatever they wanted.
And all I really want is a 1.4X T/C and another 430 II... Well, that's a lie - I do want a 300/2.8.
I bought a used Nikon 200-400mm lens along with a 80-200mm f/2.8 and a Nikkor 500mm Mirror lens from a local real estate salesman. She was selling them for her brother, and for a friend.
Her friend told her to buy a D800. Sure enough, she was selling it 3 months later. That's a story I've heard over and over, why can't my camera take sharp photos? I've bought a number of those perfectly good cameras from sellers who were not photographers. They preferred their P&S where everything was in focus. Nothing wrong with that, its just that some do not understand just what is meant by best IQ. It does not promise that the entire frame will be in sharp focus as many coming from P&S cameras seem to expect.
Nothing surprising someone prefer the image quality of Nikon D810.
I would be surprised if anyone compared lenses 24-70mm and 70-200mm also Canon and Nikon, and concluded that Nikon has better quality. Please tell your friend to get away from the overpriced (and mediocre IQ) Nikon 58mm F1.4.
In fact I would be shocked if someone chooses Sony (any model) to shoot indoor fast action sports with super telephoto lenses.
