Just food for thought in the good old days we had Photography: Are we at the Tipping Point of "Imagery" where we PS the F* out of the image and call it Photography? I would love to start a forum just for "What I Saw is What You Get" no post processing allowed, not even cropping just natural the way it happened pictures!

One reason why I love a great zoom lens is you crop as you go, you compose then shoot. Primes are great BUT they give you the SAME point of view as everyone else using them.

Think of the days when each and every shot cost MONEY and was composed, waiting for the light, several takes then the lightbox, sorting for the best.

2014 and we have "BURST" shoot the S* out of something and hope something good comes of it and by the time we sit down and view 400 shots of nothing we forgot what we were trying to capture.

A wind up surely? Seeing how many will Bite??

"What I Saw is What You Get" - That didn't happen in the days of film.

"Primes are great BUT they give you the SAME point of view as everyone else using them." - Now I know you're kidding. Doesn't matter what lens you're using, if you stand in the same spot you get the same perspective. All a zoom does is crop. Unless you move. Now there's something new!!!

Definitely a wind up, OP has to be kidding us...

"Think of the days when each and every shot cost MONEY and was composed, waiting for the light, several takes then the lightbox, sorting for the best." - Always wondered what that stuff was, ("several" takes - early form of burst?).

"2014 and we have "BURST" shoot the S*" - Is that the latest? Where can I buy one??
