comment Better to buy an older high-level camera or newer entry-level camera?
This doesn't really answer the core question directly. The question does not ask for an equipment recommendation and we generally try to avoid them as they quickly become out of date. Could you please revise your answer to answer the core question.

comment zoom lens for Baseball games
Generally product recommendations are off-topic. To improve this question I would suggest that you ask about what aspects of a lens would help, give a description for the type of photography you will be doing (Is it indoors? Brightly lit? Close to the subject? etc). Is there any aspect of other photographs you like (blurred background or everything in focus? See lots of the scene or just focussing on one aspect? etc).

comment How can I get my camera to focus on water dropping?
@Blake Somewhere on your lens (or in the lens' manual) there should be a minimum focus distance stated (do not confuse Focal Length, the 70-200mm, with focus distance, they are very different). Your subject needs to be further than this distance from the camera.

comment Will using a DX lens on an FX Body compromise ISO performance?
The noise will only be more apparent if the exposure is lower, no matter how much light is in the environment. If the aperture and shutter time is adjusted appropriately the noise characteristics are theoretically the same, ignoring sources of noise from long exposure etc.

comment suitable lens for nikon D3100
This question isn't really suitable for this site. This type of question is generally considered too broad and is usually closed. Also, there might be some other questions that will help you to decide what is best for you, because we cannot make that decision for you.

comment Can Tamron 16-300mm Macro Lens fit to Canon EOS 600D?
@MichaelClark The grammar did not say that. "1D, 5D, or 6D" cannot be referred to as the singular "it", therefore the general term "it" must refer to something else, i.e. either the "EOS M" or the original object that was being discussed, the lens.

comment Can Tamron 16-300mm Macro Lens fit to Canon EOS 600D?
@MichaelClark To say that the lens works on all canon DSLRs is misleading, because, as you say, an extreme vignette will occur, ruining any photo for which this is not intended. Also what other lens could I be talking about? A small amount of research or knowledge or even pattern matching would indicate that the EOS M, 1D, 5D and 6D are bodies and not lenses.

comment Can Tamron 16-300mm Macro Lens fit to Canon EOS 600D?
@MichaelClark It is quite obvious that "the lens" I am referring to is the one in the original question.

@MichaelClark The lens will fit the EOS M body with an adapter.

comment Sony Cybershot LCD screen replacement, inverted colors
This may get closed as off-topic as it is about a piece of technology not unique to photography (i.e. an LCD screen).
