TrollFree: is this going to be any good for landscapes and seascapes?

Fanboys? Hey, guy, I'm just passing the time of day. Angling for laughs, you know?

In reply to:

Tilted Plane: A pretty careful avoidance of Nikon (or Sony) comparisons, overall. Too bad. Head-to-head comparisons are really (!) helpful. Does this hold up next to a D750? Or even the D610? Or the similarly priced A7II? If so, when, where, under what shooting conditions?

How many enthusiasts care much for high frame rates? 10%? 40%? Does anyone have a feel for this?

Let's have the whole story about this banding business. I go in horror.

How about elephant stampedes? Will it be any good for elephant stampedes?

Is this a prison? A lunatic asylum? A government office block? The Ministry of Truth?

On article Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) (316 comments in total)

What camera should I buy if I am to view images on a 72-in 4K flat panel, whilst enjoying enough surplus pixels to do some reasonable zooming? My burning desire is to reproduce the experience of a slide show (Kodachrome 64, Nikon F, FTn, F3, N2000, Nikkor lenses, Leica IIIg, Summitar 1.5, Leitz and Zeiss projectors).

I just can't have any more 13x19-in prints in my life.

DanK7: Sorry - I'm having a grammar moment. "If its manual control points you desire..." should be "If it's manual control points you desire...." Now back to solving world problems.

Ahh. Someone cares.

Prixnobeldefoot: Some of the pictures are interesting.
However, I find it sad that none of those have a "natural" look.
I know Photography is a visual art, but I feel that nowadays people tend to value more visual effects than content, you have to make it appealing to the most people possible. It has to pop out...

Like #3, let's give them a sunset, some flowers, add some contrast and saturation and done. It's well executed but it's s been done a million times. I find it rather cliché.

I like #1 and #7 because they're intriguing in a way.

Ahh, yes. It's j-school, that's what it is.

nicolaiecostel: Number 6 looks like it's made with an iPhone and instagramed. 9 is not a landscape, it's a bloody tree and nr. 8 and 7 are architectural photographs. 1 is inexplicable, nr. 2 is a picture of a lady taking a hike. I mean, c'mon !

Glad you broke the ice, Nicola. Of course, we all have to be kind, but none of these images is my slice of liver.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: "But it also made the camera seem a little delicate, and fragile."

Seemed plenty solid when I handled it.

NB: Magnesium can feel a lot like plastic.

"However, it does seem a bit blasphemous to put the revered 'Summilux' name on a lens that isn't an f/1.4, and sometimes is closer to the brightness of an Elmarit than anything else."

The above quotation is preposterous. I suggest that the author use the newish 50mm M f/2.0 APO Summilux (8,000usd) and not get lost in the names, but concentrate on results.

You're a good sport, HowaboutRAW.

That SAAB picture is really poor. Makes me cringe.
