I added some sample pictures to the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC Lens Review.
 
Sorry for the lack of wider angle shots. When selecting down the pictures to include with this review, I apparently was not liking the wider angle compositions I was making while working with this lens. Most of the shots I had to work with were in the over-200mm range. Hopefully you will at least enjoy those.

I am intrigued by the large sensor in the Canon PowerShot G1 X; and therefore, I intend to review this camera (at least the image quality from it). To get started, I have added a Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Review page to the site.
 
Already included on the Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Review page are:

  • USA and UK press releases
  • Information and videos from Canon Professional Network
  • A sensor size chart and comparison table
  • Interactive camera size comparisons
  • Dozens of product images including a lens extension comparison

Can you spot the anomoly between image #16 and #17 near the bottom of the page (thanks Max)?

A production 1D X body has not become available to me yet, but based on information provided by Canon and a short time with a preproduction camera, I have the Canon EOS 1D X Review started.

You haven't been able to find a new Canon EOS 1D Mark III for a long time - and Canon USA has put the final nail in the 1D III coffin by removing this model from their website.
 
The 1D III has become a popular model on the used market. It is readily available on eBay and is available in refurbished condition at Adorama.

dc.watch.impress.co.jp has posted an interview with the developers of the Canon EOS 1D X. The article, being in Japanese, is completely illegible to me - but Kaz sent me a summary of what he felt was new information. Here are his notes:
 
1) The 1D X is the first time they were able to combine the features of the 1D and 1Ds, which they couldn't do before due to technological issues. It was a "finally" kind of feeling after 10 years of development.
 
2) They knew some people would ask for more MP even when they announced the 1D X, but have their ears open and will keep thinking about what the market needs.
 
3) They're always considering the possibility of MF, but have no current plans to enter that market.
 
4) Timing of the 1D X announcement was to quell questions about the 1Ds replacement and to warn pros before the Olympics, and in consideration of Nikon, which they consider to be their biggest competitor when it comes to pros.
 
5) The earthquake had some effect on the 1D X release date, but it's not that. They actually wanted to release it earlier than March, which they feel is still a bit late for the August Olympics.
 
6) Although they can't say they'll never use them in the future, they are stopping production of APS-H sensors.
 
7) The APS-H size was more to allow for high-speed shooting, so they're moving fully to full-frame, to focus more on image quality.
 
8) The Digic 5 is 6 times faster than the Digic 4. The Digic 5+ is 3 times faster than the Digic 5, making it 17 times faster than the Digic 4, allowing for a lot of processing to be done in hardware rather than software.
 
9) ISO 204800 isn't overkill, as some feel, because some photojournalists need that kind of sensitivity.
 
10) Noise levels of the 1D X should be 2 stops better in all ISOs compared to the 1D IV.
 
11) The Digic 4 is now used as an image recognition processor, so it should be more than plenty to deal with the mere 100,000 pixels used for the AE sensor.
 
12) They know some people want the low-pass filter removed. The low-pass filter in the 1D X is fundamentally the same as previous models, and they decided to keep it in because the benefits outweigh the drawbacks for the pro segment that will use the 1D X.
 
13) Weather sealing is about the same as previous models.
 
14) HDR and some lens corrections still can't be done in-body due to processing power issues. But they may be added in future models.
 
15) Lots of consideration was given to the duplication of buttons in the portrait orientation, as well as preventing accidental pushing of some buttons (like the trash button).
 
16) Quieting the dial and buttons was also considered for video use.
 
17) Contrast AF speed is the same as in previous models.
 
18) The jello effect of the rolling shutter is slightly improved.
 
19) As for mirrorless, they definitely see the utility of a small camera, but have nothing to report at this time.
 
Thanks Kaz!

One of the tasks that I am far behind on is adding sample pictures to the site. To begin addressing this issue, I have added a batch of sample pictures to the site.
 
Many Canon EOS DSLRs and many lens brands and models are represented in this batch. I hope to add many more pictures in the near future.
 
Be sure to read the tips and other comments below each picture.
