About me:

I have been fortunate and financially able to retire at 48. Now being a few years older, I just take life one day at a time and with no worries. Admittedly, I'm just a happy vacation and family snapshooter with no photographic skills at all, and I really don't care. I have no ego.
I'm not one of those self-centered, miserable, lacking in any social skills, socially isolated chaps lurking the forums spewing rude and inappropriate comments on others. You know who they are. LOL!
I'm here to learn more about photography. And to appreciate images taken by others. Photography is just a hobby for me, and my life is not centered around it. That's it.

What lens is Zack using in the opening shots? Looks like some kind of pancake lens?
Also, his camera bag?

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2294 comments in total)

Seriously? Just expensive bling. Those nutty Germans. :)

Fuji XE-2 is for real photographers.

The T is for wannabes who are Red Dot fanboys. The gold neck chain crowd.

In reply to:

novak977: amazing how A7 is ignored while being MUCH better value being FF for just a bit more money.
for example EVF is a bit smaller but it is not even shown here along with other cameras.
This is nice but APS-C camera, with lot of useful features but nothing really exciting, nothing that can give you FF experience on budget.

That A7 shutter is as loud as my farts. Can you image a street or wedding photographer using A7?

In reply to:

Jogger: Fuji is rumoured to be following Sony and releasing both a fixed lens FF camera (RX1/R competitor) and an FF ILC and lenses based on their existing mount. It will be interesting if they are able to extrans those sensors.

It's just B.S.

On DPReview Gear of the Year - Part 1: Fujifilm X100S article (307 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: This kind of Fujifilm X100s infatuation has been finding its way into a few DPR articles of late, most notably the Nikon Df Preview and the whole "Retro Done Silly" fiasco.

I've enjoyed using both the X100 and X-E1 but I don't know too many photographers who would purposely choose an X100 over a proper FF DSLR, retro or not, for any other reason than convenience.

Why do photogs get hung up on the FF thing?

In reply to:

John Pennington: I may be wrong, but I thought the S still has the aperture dance problem of the original X100, which makes usage somewhat of a a pain.

What is the aperture dance?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview (559 comments in total)
In reply to:

108: I have no doubt that the IQ of this camera is on par with the EM5 and even EM1, plus you get built in flash, IBIS ( one of my major reservations with pana bodies ), better ergonomics compared to EM5, the excellent pana manual focus options, electronic shutter, iDynamic, etc...yet I have held it in store along the Olympuses and can't help to think it does not have the same built quality as the Olys ,it feels lighter, the EVF is way not as good as the EM1's, and very subjectively I think it is maybe not ugly but completely without inspiration , ordinary looking, flat. As for me I would put down the extra 2 or 300 euros and get the EM1 instead.

the em1 looks ugly. A Frankenstien like cobbled together body. Tje appendage that is the grip, is out of place on the em1.

Not like the original classic EM-5 good looks.

In reply to:

vFunct: Nikon makes the best cameras - better than Canon.

Nothing else is even in the same league.

Whenever I go to a press event, all the professional photographers are using Nikon or Canon.

There is absolutely nothing else.

Mirrorless cameras are garbage, strictly used by amateurs that do not know professional photography.

This new Nikon is just icing on their top-shelf cake.

WTF have you been smoking?
Or is you blind?

So for me, no reason to upgrade. My 4s does just fine as a back up imaging device for casual social snapshots.
