Re: broken Sony 24-70mm G-Master lens

no comments surprising. It's not shocking to have something fail even an expensive lens. What is interesting is that they disputed it as a warranty repair when it seems to be just that ie manufacturing fault. I don't see a massive amount of people with their 24-70 G lenses broken on their cameras. ...

Re: Sony announces new A9 in New York....

Other than the impressive numbers (and lots of footnotes) what I find as a game changer is a) Sony introduced the camera as "Professional" b) Sony is "expanding" the Pro support program, adding support for Canada and opening two walk-in centers in the USA (New York and Los Angele...

Re: Go fly a kite

Nice! I'm more into the Charly Brown's kite's skills -I haven't try to fly one since I was a kid... But I got a small drone, bigger than a toy, smaller and cheaper than the "real thing", that I just register. I'll try to fly it at the park soon, if there is no one watching (mostly all NYC ...

Re: Sony passes Nikon

That's a good question. Based on what you can buy in stores here in Peru, Canon is way out in front, Nikon is 2nd, and Sony is a distant 3rd in interchangeable lens cameras. However, when you just consider mirrorless only, the race is closer with Sony and Panasonic at the top. Once again, this is o...

Re: Sony passes Nikon

Your possibly right, but Canon will be the toughest hurdle both US and global to cross. Stores are good indicators of trends, Panasonic is a big seller because of its high reputation as a great movie camera. Makes you wonder where Pentax are on the global scale of things, would be interesting to se...

Re: A recent trip into Colca Canyon

Pako, Jeff, It is always devastating when these calamities occur. I hope the suffering is not severe. Are these typical seasonal events or atypical this year? Just curious. Sury This is a bad year. It usually happens on El Niño years, but El Niño was last year, so I guess this are the left overs, a...

Re: A recent trip into Colca Canyon

One condor flew by real close, but by the time I got my camera back up to my eye, it was gone. I couldn't believe how big it was. Parts of the country are really having a hard time. Adobe houses are collapsing in the north, people and livestock are caught in flash floods and run-off. People are los...

It is the end of the rainy season, this year is not that bad in the south of Peru, but the Central Andes and the north of the country is really suffering flooding and landslide :-/
