sony's cameras seem to be in a league of their own. so why do professionals stick with bulkier models from canon and nikon? one answer is glass—often just as pricey as pro-grade bodies, and you need a lot of it to be in business. dpreview's dan bracaglia suggests that sony's latest full-frame model, the $5,000 a9, is so fantastic that many pros are talking about jumping ship, but should be cautioned by the sheer expense of doing so. using our example, the cheapest one could go full-on sony, with most of the same kit is $22,870. after applying the $11,820 discount from having sold off all the canon equipment, a photojournalist would still have to cough up about $11,050 to make the switch. or they could simply take that $11,820 and buy a couple of a9 bodies and maybe a lens."switching syst...

the canon of veteran literature from the forever wars has expanded beyond the swell of male memoir and americentric combat fiction. it’s been more than a decade since brian van reet rolled into baghdad as a tank crewman for the second invasion of iraq, and he’s had time to think about it. “spoils,” his debut novel, speaks in tongues, all foreign to the setting, each character a volunteer about to be betrayed by soldiering. it’s a book of inescapable vows and unintended consequences.(lee boudreaux)the story, though mostly based in iraq, is nearly absent of iraqis. the players have all come from the outside. we alternate between three narrators and pivot on a single ambush near baghdad early in the war. time leaps between moments leading to this attack or to events resulting from i...
