Pretty impressive, even as a cut down .jpg

    That's funny... I have a shot of that exact same ruin, taken from
    roughly one foot to the left of where he's standing, and zoomed in
    just a tad (really, that close; the framing is almost identical).
    He had better light though, so his is better. It was too cloudy
    when I was there.

    Remind me to find some less-frequently-photographed stuff next time. :)

    I have been so OVER-impressed with my mk2 that canon finally got something
    right. After having 3 bad lenses and 2 bad bodies its a pleasure to get
    something that works better then I expected. No flaws here.


    And the next post says:

    I will say, however, that Canon does ship some poorly calibrated cameras,
    that are either at the far side of spec, or out of spec completely. I just
    got back a 2 week old body that had been focusing poorly, and now it is
    perfect. Customer service was great, but factory quality control seem a bit
    soft. On that note, your sensor seems very spotty for a brand new cam.
    Happy shooting!

    Then

    sorry sensor dust on 2nd shot shot with a big f number

    Give it a rest Stacey. You are getting tiresome. If you want anyone to
    take anything you say seriously, you'd be better off getting away from this
    relentless anti Canon bent you're on. You do have many useful contributions
    to this and other newsgroups, but you are in danger of being considered a
    troll, or just an argumentative freak, and ignored.

    The shots are very sharp and color is superb, but I wonder how much of that
    is the lens(es). The shooter is using very good lenses. My 70-200 f2.8L IS
    arrived yesterday and the difference in sharpness/color/contrast etc etc
    makes it seem that I just got a new camera. I am sure that the Mk2 is a
    wonderful camera, but the glass being used in these shots is of very high
    quality. BTW, there was quite a few dust-bunnies floating around in the sky
    :)

    It doesn't matter how good the lens is if the sensor won't capture the image
    transmitted...

    So it's fine to point out the weak point of the olympus or nikon system but
    no one better even mention problems a canon can have? Seems absurd to me
    that a $8-10,000 camera wasn't checked at the factory for focus accuracy,
    YMMV.

    Missed my point, didn't you, girl...
    I don't see any focus problems, and they have to be crops, if you just think
    logically.
    But still not my point. Your sarcasm and bitterness detract from any
    credibility you may have. You're not the one pointing out any weakness,
    perceived or otherwise, you are slamming the owners of Canon cameras,
    relentlessly. That's part of my point, it's up to you to figure out what
    the rest was...
