About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

"The X-E2 isn't a great all-rounder... Not so good for sports or action photography."

No wonder MILCs can't gain any traction against DSLRs. Even the latest greatest are handicapped.

Hi J_J_B and Dimit,
A friend of mine has had his XE-2 for two(2) months now and loves it :) After looking at the "CONS", I believe that there are a few that are subjective and a few that will be objective :) As for the build quality, he likes it and, this is coming from a D600/D300/D7100's (and all with VG/BP's) and V1 :) As for sports/action … that's why you should have a different camera (D7100) for that ….or, if you want to use the XE-2, start photographing slower sports ….. curling, perhaps ;)

Trust me, Sam, they weren't near the quality of images submitted and far, far less than the winning images .. I post one of them later, from me laptop :) Plus, Daily Life, in Vancouver/BC is far less dramatic than the rest of the world ;)

In reply to:

D200_4me: Attention Pixel Peepers: Note that the photo is very high ISO and has plenty of noise in the shadows. Let that be a lesson to you as you endlessly debate who's got the best pixels and therefore can make the best photos. Go out and shoot and enjoy yourself. Don't worry about the noise. Just worry about making a photo that means something to you or someone else. That should be what matters. :-)

Spot on, D200_4me :)

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: These comments have made my day. At last, people have figured out that "super" zooms offer everything except quality. But you can't blame Tamron for giving people what they want. Their original 28-200 was a stinker and sold like crazy.

@ Miwok .... well stated and ditto :) ... and that includes the original 28-200 ;)
