DPP, for example, has an almost miraculous ability to "add DR" in the shadows compared to Lr; Optics Pro is good too, albeit not as good as it could be in reaching into just the shadows.
Guys, and almost all of us are guys, lets not get precious about this, there are a lot of mediocre images here, not least the hundreds of illustrative images I have put up. There are also some very very good images, though they are in the minority.
But Dave is really missing the point, this is not, predominantly, an image centric forum, it is a gear centric forum where most people come to see and talk gear and are photography geeks who enjoy the equipment as much as the image making, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that as far as I am concerned. If you want more stunning images than you can believe go to 500px, or Flickr.
There are some standouts here though, Jrista's astro photography is very good, Kieth Reeder gets the best I have ever seen out of the 7D at over 800iso, Sporgon has an amazing and never ending array of technically perfect and atmospheric English landscapes, florianbieler.de shoots very high quality environmental portrait sets. We have some high quality well heeled shooters too, Gary Samples and his eagles, wolves, etc and eml58 with his safaris and Indonesian portraits to count just six off the top of my head, high quality image makers here (and please don't get offended if I missed you, there are many more than six!).
But, the truth is if you want gear talk and opinions, if you want baseless rumours, if you want to see Neuro demolish the latest incarnation of Mikael, and if you want illustrative images, diagrams, links and advice then this is THE Canon place to be.
I also find this confusing, but read somewhere (trying to find the source) that 80-90% of DSLR owners (that would be Rebels & their Nikon ilk) never remove their kit lens. Alan's math makes sense in that regard, plus, not every SLR or DSLR owner throws away their body after two years. People have bought my old bodies, and I bet many of them still own them.
Because, there are survey results 4-5% of customers who bought the kit lens is that it does not use only kit lens.
Would indeed be interesting to see an accurate translation of this. Do 5% never buy another lens? If so that is an amazing stst
I could believe that easily 4-5% never buy another lens. I know people with DSLRs that bought a kit and are just fine with their kit zoom. They take pictures only once in a while such as on a trip or at some big event. It just depends on how much they get into photography.
wouldn't the is does NOT only use the kit lens, imply the opposite though?
yeah I guess that could be
