Reviews / Re: Camera Store Trashes New G7X
« on: October 20, 2014, 12:47:41 AM »
I have used the camera since friday. It is inconsistent in af accuracy. Most pictures are soft. When all hits then the pics are great but for a $700 convience camera it shoukd work better than that. I would like to consider the rx100 but do not like the short focal range and handling. I think the extra bulk and IQ would be better invested in the sony a6000 for the money. At least your carrying apsc sized sensor and hopefully the af can keep up.

I got my eyes locked on RX100 III as well  ;)

Very nice Dylan, I especially like the first one, nice colors. That 16-35 is a great lens.

Thanks guys  :)

I really like the "gritty reality" feel to this shot.

With 70-200mm f2.8 IS II. Calico Ghost Town in California, some old and rusty tools.

Thanks Skulker

Great photos and very nice colors. Did you use a preset or 'played' with the coloring yourself?

Thanks candyman.

I used preset from vsco as a baseline and some adjustments to my taste.

I was using my 70-200mm today for softball... it would have been tough to limit myself to only 200mm... so I think I may be keeping the lens even if I do elect to upgrade to the 200 f2...

My 6yrs got picked as top five swimmers in her class. She will be competing tomorrow with other teams. Can't wait to shoot with my 1DX. The 400mm will be mounted on 5D III this time. Wish I have another 1DX... ::)

Finally, I got a chance playing with this lens for about 4hrs. Took over 700 photos with 1DX. My final verdict is this lens going to stay in my bag.

In Ai servo, keeper rate is little less compared to f2.8 - 70-200 f2.8 and 400mm f2.8. However, IQ on the keepers is AWESOME. Let me say that again.....FREAKEN AWESOME ;D

Today I was shooting more softball, and in the 2nd game, I got into a fight with the umpire regarding a quick pitch (pitch is thrown before the batter is ready), and he was being petty and removed me from hugging the fence on the side of the field... so that went well... Damn umpires.

LOL.... ;D

I'm a bit more lucky than you JD. Since I share photos with the coach and other parents, he gave me decent spot = great view. With 200mm & 400mm on hands, getting the shots weren't that difficult.

I saw other teams came with their own photographers. Many of them were black/gold.

My 70-200 is my most used and most loved lens.  I bought a 200mm f1.8 a little over a year ago.  Touched the paint up and sold it for $300 more than I paid.  It was interesting, but I never felt like it was a replacement for my 70-200.

With excellent IQ, fast AF speed, and zoom range 70-200 it will be hard to replace the current version. Here is another shot with 70-200 f2.8 IS II with 1DX, able to frame the shot.

My plan was to sell the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II, after 200mm f2 IS arrived. Posted it on ebay last night, however, I ended my auction today. Just couldn’t do it guys.

Dam you L lenses
I don't blame you!!! :) :) :) The 200 f2??? :) :) :) : You're shooting with class!!! :) :) :) early Christmas present? Congrats!!!
Didn't you pick up a 600 not too long ago Dylan???

Not yet. Still shooting with 400mm. My 6yrs + 3yrs will join junior golf team early Feb. If thing works out for them, 600mm sounds very temping  ;)

I love your rusty shots, Dylan!
Rust is always interesting (as long as it doesn't show up on my car). It redesigns things we are familiar with, in ways we couldn't imagine.

Thanks DominoDude
