Vista was garbage.

Get 7Pro x64, you'll never regret it.

Rant over  ;D

How's Vista garbage? People didn't like it because computers were not powerful enough to run it smoothly. Run it on a new recently released computer and it will fly.

Mostly default settings.  They "did it" in vista, then "undid it" in 7, then "did it" again in 8, now are skipping 9 and going to 10 and "undoing it".

BTW, each OS uses (obviously) more resources, but the minimum requirements are supposed to be the same from vista -> 10.

Either way, I was more going for a takeoff on the original rant  ;D

Speaking from the 'oh, this crap again' crowd, we're just sick of every thread about every thread, about every topic, ending up a talk on DR.

Except that is not what is happening.  Every (most) threads do not end up as a discussion about DR.  Most threads seem to end up as a discussion (argument) about people talking about DR or posters making snarky comments about DR.

There has not been an actual discussion about DR here for a while.
That's fine -- and that's exactly what I mean. There's no discourse, only discord.  It's off-topic backbiting and fighting that this has all become.

Look at it this way, what if someone take wifi, or GPS and every thread harps that it's not in camera X, on every thread. You'd think they're a lunatic.

This has gotten way out of hand; when I started here, I used to read every new post because I'd learn something or be entertained, after a while, I'd only read topics I was interested in . . . now I click on the headlines and when the first page has someone complaining about a new sensor or DR.

When someone complains about that, or tells someone they're a nut, for, well, behaving like a nut, they get called fanboys.  Want to see fanboys? apple insider -- basically the same as here but a lot less objectivity.

I'm a Canon loyalist for my own reasons, but I tell people new to DSLRs to go with either them or Nikon, depending what their family and friends shoot for support reasons.  Same thing with Apple.  I like certain products, but I'll call them out for never making a single 'good' mouse ever.  You like Windows? Great, but make sure you buy a computer that's got enough oomph to not make it a bad experience.

Lot of bad etiquette here these days.  Lot of badwill.  Seems like a lot of shills with multiple accounts, just stirring up trouble.

I remember the days when I was the only lunatic around here  :-[

Sony DOES have an excellent track record of bringing top-of-the-line technologies to market in a timely fashion, at a good price, without bugs or glitches, so at least you've got that going for you.  ::) They've become mainstream in every technology they ever were ahead at . . . they're the number one name in TVs, Portable Music Players, Laptops, and, oh yeah, cameras.
Sony also has a history of putting out a lot of proprietary crap in their products that they won't license in the vain hope that people will be trapped into buying Sony branded consumables forever and ever, which led to the doom of Betamax, the Super Audio CD and pretty much anything that needed a Memory Stick, among others.
I agree . . . I guess the sarcasm was TOO complete.

 ;D

What I was saying is that Sony had all of those markets to milk and managed to fark up a lunch that was already paid for.  Apple and Samsung have taken over all of the markets they were ahead in. 

As for sony and cameras (a joke, really), they were ahead early on, but their classic management style of trying to treat/protect themselves as a premium brand and not sell to the masses . . . and not getting enough market share to gain traction has them right where they are.

We Are Canon! We build Cameras like it was still 2008 Or Later!

Why don't you just use the other profile . . .

Indeed, the way you complain is by not buying Canon products and that's why next April, I won't be spending money on Canon but on Sony. Hit them where it hurts: in the pocket. They won't listen to anything else.

But you have to inform Canon of your decision.  If you just stop buying Canon, they won't notice.  Write a letter (a real letter not e-mail) to the regional and even international directors laying out your decision process in a calm but firm manner. 

Canon is less concerned with people not buying Canon compared with Canon customers leaving the brand.

You realize he's actually a bot, right? Someone would have to mail it for him.  ;D

With all respect, but this was the dumbest, silliest, least conceived action I have seen from Canon!
They see everybody complaining about missing DR, high MP or Mirrorless, they build up quite a lot of tension (look at this thread, 20 pages of speculations), everyone does expect a revolutionary product even more, but instead of bringing on a development announcement of the mythical 3D or the M3, what do they do?

With respect, anyone expecting a development announcement coming specifically from Canon USA was deluding themselves.

As for the complaining...people with issues should complain where it matters...  Hint: that's not here.  ::)

But you'll post about it here . . . again . . . and again and again.

Hrm. Registered today, five posts all in the same thread.

One wonders which one of our long-time posters is the new FakeSteveJobs on this thread  :P

Excellent. Totally awesome.

Every lens I've bought from them was "perfect" (as graded).

This is even better since they test the stuff constantly!

oh HECK no.

This is supposed to be year of the lens.

If they release a second body, well, I'm moving to Nikon.

Besides, what will DxO say? You know it's gonna stink! Booo canon  ::)

Anti-Canon = everything Canon does is bad.
Canon fanboy = everything Canon does is good.
Neutral = Canon is best at many things but not everything.

Ok, so that makes me Neutral.   :)
Speaking of "Fair and Balanced", where *IS* dilbert today?  He missed the first page of the high MP sensor thread . . .

We'll have to wait and see what happens with DxO testing and elsewhere to see if there is any banding evident but it is a pity that Canon didn't put the same effort into improving IQ between the 5D2 and 5D3.

I'm curious if you owned either.  I noticed marked improvement, but that was in my own, personal, real-world photography . . .

The 5Dmk2 was my workhorse before replacing it with a couple 5Dmk3s.  There is at least a 1-stop improvement in overall image quality in noise levels at high ISOs plus much more color detail.  With the 5Dmk2 I couldn't rely on ISOs over 3200 for 8x10 prints, but with the 5Dmk3 I can easily push it to 6400 (though I rarely do).

Exactly. I just don't see the complaining or the doom and gloom . . . every quirk I didn't like about my mk2 was answered with the mk3, but on every new camera thread, we get people talking about Canon's failures that I'm just not seeing.
