        On a scale of 1-10 (10=best), how good is this flickr

        post your comments directly on flickr if possible.
        \_ while we're at it, can someone critique this one please?

8/31    Does it make sense to buy a nice 70-200mm f/4L lens and mount it on a
        cheap Canon Rebel XSi with 12MP? I'd hate to upgrade the body
        because bodies get outdated quickly, and I don't care about how fast
        auto-focus is. I just care about image quality for non-sports pics. I'd
        love to have a sharper lens than my cheapo 55-250mm and don't care
        about the body, but I'm wondering if there are severe disadvantages

7/21    NASA uses Nikon cameras. NASA prefers Nikon cameras. There are more
        Nikon cameras that went to outer space than any other brand. I love
        Nikon cameras. They're built to be abused, built to last.
        \_ When is Apple going to make cameras or partner with a good one?
        \_ Canon cameras are just as good, and I think in the US Canon is more
           popular than Nikon.  -- yuen, owner 3 Nikon SLRs and 0 Canon.

5/28    Reading camera posts got me curious about rangefinder cameras. In an
        era of DSLR, full automation, and instant digital imaging, why would
        anyone want to use a rangefinder camera? Why are Voitglander and
        Leica even making modern rangefinders when DSLRs are clearly superior
        in terms of lens selection and features?                -DSLR guy
        \_ Rangefinders are still more quiet, have less vibration, and are

5/28    Hey kngharv, you said "it's *IMPOSSIBLE* to make a good 6x zoom."
        But Nikon and Canon came out with a 11X zoom. The 18-200mm.
        Ironic how times have changed eh?
        \_ You haven't justified that they are "good", only that they exist.
        \_ Tamron also has a 28-300mm.  Don't know if it's good though.

5/4     Which Canon dSLR should I buy?
        \_ The cheapest one you can get away with, and the most expensive
           glass you can afford. Camera body depreciates 1/2 every 18-24
           months. Plastic kit lenses depreciate at about 15-20% each
           year till they're worthless in about 3-5 years. Good glass
           (constant f/2.8 and below) hardly ever depreciate, and some

        \_ I agree with the protestors. Adobe Flash Player's monopoly

1/7     Anyone have a rangefinder camera? Like it?
           \_ here you go:
           \_ What is the deal with geeks and cameras, anyway?
        \_ There was a time when people were interested in rangefinder
           camera because without the pentaprism, it's lighter than SLR....

going on inside lenses that are all "we optically stabilize yer blurry images, biyatch" and make you pay extra? A lot of movin' and groovin', as this Canon lens cutaway reveals.
