Great photo, but where is the pilot? I've shot some Blue Angels and even though the planes appear smaller and not as clear, I often can see the pilot in the cockpit. Could it be the angle of the sun on the canopy?

I am sure a few had that thought as well.

I hate to be cynical but I thought it looked like a model airplane when I first looked at the picture. In fact I thought was why we do not see the whole aircraft as someone or something was holding it.

Like I say, I hate to be cynical but...

Well, reading about Canon's marketing ploys it's hard not go get a little cynical :-) ... concerning green screen pictures, this is really a problem because I often think a real world situations I see look likes cgi - but actually it's the other way around. My demand: ban green screen, I want to see the strings that holds the model like in the good ol' Star Trek days!

Birdman, usually people are going to think of its obvious advantages with landscape photography such as Peter Lik.

Fuji Velvia was mentioned somewhere in this thread. :p

I guess I'd want to ask how many still shoot film and or how did you cope with only film. I coped just fine. *shrugs*

I think one source of much of the griping is that, while they improve every generation, digital sensors still have not caught up with good film in terms of DR... which I guess also ties into the question of 'how good is good enough?'.  I think when senors are at least on-par with the high end films then there will be some tapering off of the desire for improvement.

the threads got deleted, he does all sorts of dodgy stuff, blatantly lieing about massivly fake photoshopped pictures and claiming other photographers work as his own to name a few

I have no problem with people buying either the D800 or the 5DIII. Just a question of personal choice, I am not going to try to get them to change their mind as I dont want people telling me what to buy, so I wont tell them.

The D800 and the 5D3 are quite different cameras that appeal to different types of users, they are so far apart that it is difficult to make a objective comparison.

add to that its getting really tiresome of all the ner ner ner ner the D800 is better posts filtering into every single thread so what if it is still doesnt make the 5Dmk3 bad and the bettererness is only marginal anyway
