Another comment under the LX7 preview was criticising DPreview for shooting at 'high noon' in bright sunlight. You can't win, haha.
It looks to me like there's a fair amount of variation in this scene anyway - if it were shot with a lot of sunlight people would likely say 'come back in the morning or at sunset'.
Would have been better to shoot on a sunny day so we could judge dynamic response better...
I'll give God a call.
1. Beginning Photo 100...Use the "Sunny 16" rule!2. Use a polarizer when needed, it makes objects photographed, more vivid. Even better than Canon or Nikon!3. If you believe everything you see, in advertisements, chances you can do better!4. Think twice, shoot once!5. The next model is just that...The next model, be happy with what you have and save your money!
So children, this has been a little old school camera speak. There are ways to get better shots with any camera, if you use your brain instead of being a slave to auto everything!
I was at the same place on July 14th!!
