  • Replied in the reasons ...
    ... I've never bought the used lenses, except for some legacy glass. First, you practically can never verify the seller claims and the seller motives are always suspect. The reason #1 somebody ...
  • Created discussions fresh bullsh!t: $6/lb
    30,000 people bought crap on Black Friday – literally
  • Frankly, they both look awful -- poor resolution, a lot of noise, heavy handed noise reduction.
  • That's exactly true, the DOF, FOV, and light (shot noise) -- all scale with the crop factor. So you lose both the resolution and light, making it a very mediocre 20-40/2.8-5.6 zoom.
  • Putin and his cronies squirreled their billions of $ in various western banks and firms. Now you think they are going to destroy all that? And here is the second question to you. When Putin's mafia ...
  • Sweet dreams. The 'decent' interest rates may not come for a very long time. We may not see Fed funds rate higher than 2% for another decade.
  • You are repeating an old myth, which used to be wide spread, but for the last two years there were so many posts, articles, and even DPR editorial which dispelled it, I'm surprised to see somebody ...
  • The Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 lens is equivalent to a FF 75-210mm f/4.2 lens. So the closest Canon lens would be 70-200mm f/4, not the f/2.8. And if you compare Fuji to the equivalent Canon you'll find ...
  • I've never had 38mm Zuiko, but I had 40mm/1.4 lens for a couple years (sold it when got Fuji lenses). Apart from noticeable OOF CA, the lens was sharp with a good contrast. Yours showing very low ...
  • Yes, Walmart employs a lot more people, and importantly, most of those people are low skilled workers, so had a Walmart gone out of business many of them would have become a public charge. ...
  • And what does the article say? -- Serving British soldier obsessed with far right jailed for making deadly nail bomb How did you jump from a " soldier " to the " soldiers "? From " obsessed with ...
  • Despite the fact that the sensors are ISO-less, it's a convenience feature, so you don't need to do a severe correction in the PP software. On the other hand, I don't see images from APS-C sensors ...
  • Yes, humans are great in finding a meaning in randomness. Like this one: Or this:
  • Not a good crop. The large structure of the bridge feels "caged" because all "context" has been removed. It's a good idea to give such structures enough space in the direction they span. P.S. there ...
  • I think this is related to the non-orthodox CFA Fuji is using in x-series. It takes time and money to roll out the manufacturing of the sensors with x-trans CFA, so naturally they would want to ...
  • Fuji is not manufacturing any sensors. Fuji used to buy 16MP Sony sensors for all X-series cameras. It's likely they are going to use the newer 24MP Sony sensors in the X-Pro2. But it's also ...
  • Replied in not applicable
    'Nothing' is an abstract notion, an empty set. As an abstraction it can participate in building other abstractions, like 'set theory', but there is no physical thing corresponding to nothing. The ...

    noun: purpose · plural noun: purposes (1) the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists ...
  • I had a misfortune to live in NYC for 2 years. Nowhere else in the country have I seen roads in such a poor condition. It's a lot of fun to hearing a loud thump of tires catching a deep one. I ...
  • Replied in what's 3-D?
    Do you have anything except the anecdotes? Any objective data? That seems to be a universal agreement, no argument here. What would that be? A per pixel resolution? -- Yes, but why does it matter? ...
