You may want to look at Nik software as a plug in too.

Who cares? Every thread will be hijacked by people telling us our cameras are crap, even if we are happy with them they will try and tell us why we shouldn't be, even when we tell them we understand their point, and it is valid, they will still go on and on and on and on..........serenity now!
I try, I truthfully try, but it is like a car accident, you really don't want to look as you drive by but for some morbid reason you can't stop yourself. Now they are saying you can't print a Canon file from any camera above 13" x 19", they honestly believe there is a 36% deficiency in Canon sensors, though how you can quantify that to 36% is a mystery, they are crazy, truthfully crazy. Don't they realise they sound like the crazy guy in the parking lot at the mall?
I think I am not going to log in for a few days.

A related question: how many non-Nikon shooters go to Nikon forums to complain about Nikon?
From what I've seen, many of the most vocal complainers on CR don't use Canon gear. Some of them used to shoot Canon. So why are they here?
Have they 'found religion' and are here to 'convert' the great unwashed masses?
Do they have inner doubts about their choices, and coming here to complain about Canon helps them continue to justify their decisions?
Do they think they're being altruistic, devoting their time and energy to show us poor, deluded fools how bad we have it, and how good it could be if only we make the same choices they made?
Do they honestly want Canon to deliver products that would meet their own needs, however niche those needs are, and somehow believe that complaining here will help accomplish that?
Or...do they merely want to sow discord?
Frankly, the vast majority of CR forum members are here to request and provide information, share techniques and images, etc. CR is a great community resource, and like nearly all successful Internet forums, it attracts a few incessant complainers. Look on the bright side – they provide some entertainment on slow rumor days...
D800 -> D810Dear Troll,
The 5dm3 is looking really old.
You are correct and your post is a revelation. Apparently the small inferior sensor in my 5DIII is holding me back, not just with photos, but with the ladies as well. I will have to put all of my Canon gear on eBay this afternoon and replace it with the bigger, sexier, and younger D810. I can't believe I ever thought that little sensor in the 5DIII would ever take decent photos.
Obviously the lenses I'm using, my technique and vision are all meaningless if I'm carrying around anything Canon. How could I possibly capture any good photos with an AA filter and without the vastly superior DR and massive megapixels of the Nikon?
From now on, I promise only to use the Nikon D810 with Nikon's best lenses set to their optimum aperture on a solid tripod with cable release.
Crap, what do I do about the new Sony??? I need to shoot black cats in unlit coal mines and the Nikon is inferior to the Sony. I guess the Nikon is junk and I need to get the Sony. I'm so confused.
Please advise on which I should choose - the Nikon D810 or Sony A7S.
One word for 400mm f2.8 IS II = "SUPER". AF is FAST. Truely designed for sports.
It works very well with 1.4x TC III, still 95% compared to bare. IQ drops quite a bit with 2x TC III at wide open in Ai servo only(still good in One shot mode). Sharpness improve when step down to f7-8 in Ai servo.

We came across these lions one evening on a night drive from Skukuza camp. The males were restless and walking all around a lioness in heat...there are many more of my African wildlife & other images here on my Zenfolio website . . .http://ivanmuller.zenfolio.com/ Please have a look and give me some feedback!
I have the opportunity to sell my Canon 70-200 f4 IS L at a fair price. I was thinking about selling it and buy a new Tamron 70-200 f2.8 VC.
I know the Tamron is bigger and quite heavier, but that wouldn't be a problem. My doubts are:
1) Image quality: I don't think the Tamron is as good as the Canon
2) Colors: I don't know about the 70-200, but I have a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC and though it's very sharp and has a great stabilizer, it has bland colors. I also have a Canon 16-35 f2.8 L and the colors, compared to the Tamron 24-70, are immensely better, richer, brighter.
Any advice? Thanks!
The thorn in my side is a new version of the 400 5.6L. The oldest lens in the line up now yet to be re-worked
IS plus a closer min focus.
Thank you please Canon
I might be interested in that lens, also. But it would have to compete with a new 100-400L.
I would never buy a new camera model as soon as it comes out.
With todays manufacturing ethic, it is just two risky.
Same as with the new 7D. I rather other people be the first to buy/find manufacturing and design errors.
It is kinda like walking through a mine field -- I prefer waiting for the other people to go first. LoL
