  • You just summed it up nicely. When you try to turn an M4/3 kit into a Nikon D4s, you end up with something much larger, much heavier, and not nearly as good as a D4s. The biggest advantage of M4/3 ...
  • Which Leica lens can you buy for the price of this camera bag? You might be able to buy a nice lens hood or a lens cap, but not a Leica lens.

    Anyone who actually owns a $10,000 Leica won't bat an...

  • I really think it comes down to a matter of personal preference. If you like using a zoom lens, then you won't find a better normal zoom lens than this one. And it really isn't that expensive when ...
  • An interesting alternative to having a lens mount.

    Just buy the same camera four times.

    Kudos to Sigma for marketing innovation!

  • Replied in well....
    I am not denying that this is an outstanding lens. And that technical results would be somewhat better. And I did suggest he buy it, if he wants it. What I am saying is it "isn't transformational." ...
  • It really is a lot more complex than my "simplified example." Market size means a lot to costs, prices and profitability.  When a market shrinks, like the market for cameras has, there is an excess ...
  • Replied in In one word: NO
    Jules, I visited your galleries and saw some very impressive photos there. Then I asked myself, would these photos have been any better if Jules had used a better lens? And the answer is... not ...
  • Obviously, anyone can understand there will be a huge cost difference in making one copy of anything, and making one million copies. We all know that the more you make the lower the R&D expense ...
  • We now have proof. If you can score 100% on any test, then it means that anyone with a pulse can too. Like I said... that test is just way too easy.
  • From what I have read, it seems the UK is even more irrational than the USA. They actually have a law against "anti-social behavior." If we did that here, then everyone would be in prison. I ...
  • The new G was worth waiting for!

    This looks like a lot of MILC camera for the money. I hope they sell a ton of them.

  • I aced it too. I thought the quiz was too easy. I didn't even have to guess. The answers seemed obvious. I think most of the grammatical errors you see in these forums are made because people are ...
  • The 14-42mm EZ is a very compact lens, and that might be it's only virtue. According to most review sites, the 14-42mm II R lens is the better lens. I'd say you made a wise choice.
  • I had a 70-300mm lens from my 4/3 shooting days. When I moved to M4/3 I continued to use this lens with an adapter. Eventually I sold it off and replaced it with a 75-300mm II M4/3 lens. Both ...
  • The LX100 is probably the most convenient travel cam in the group, but it has the poorest image quality. And it's not a cheap camera, and it isn't a small camera. If you don't mind changing lenses, ...
  • It just depends on how deep your pockets are, and how much you want a "better lens."
  • I wasn't referring to some biased source, like NBC or ABC news. I was referring to law itself. If you read it, you would understand that the prohibition of photography is "when trespassing."
  • If land or property is rented... then you still can't trespass on it. Ownership isn't the only issue. The Federal Government cannot have it both ways. If they demand rent, then the renter must have ...
  • To quote former President Clinton "it all depends on how you define is." I think the intent of the rule was to prevent endless arguments about the relative merits of different religions and why ...
  • Please read the bill. It DOES NOT criminalize photography, it criminalizes "collecting data WHILE trespassing on private property." And of course, photography is a form of data collection. I ...
