raducdz: I read the comments around here and realize more and more that there aren't many artists around,but too many "photographers",and many of them rather ignorant with no aesthetic sense.I see Andreas Gursky's image is making some noise...can't imagine why.I finished an art college and majored in art photography,and he was given to us as example of a great artist with an original great style and technique I have to say Gursky's image is impecable. Supeb geometry, superb minimalistic scene, and probably a huge and superb print! I think people call it boring because there's no kitschy bird flying, dog running or kid playing, or something you "great photographers in your spare time" like to see. Every image speaks to a person, and while some of your images only speak to you, their images speak to people who are willing to pay huge amounts of money for them.They ARE better than us,that is why they do better than us in photography.What we can do,is analyze,learn and respect.

You know what they say... a critic is one who failed as an artist. :)
I am not going to create an art sense in other people's head, because you either are born with vision or not, and most obviously don't have it... That is why they are "hobbyist photographers" not artists. The usual internet commenter seems to know everything behind the keyboard, about any domain, but it never published anything further than the internet, which makes their opinion about photography as art quite irrelevant.

Carlos C: ??? the posted pictures must be a mistake. Cannot see the value on the majority of them. Well, I guess you have to be very well connected.

You must be an art critic and know what you're talking about... but then I checked your photography site and I see not enough skill for you to have a reason to actually make one... but you did it anyway. Most of the "online critics/photographers" did. Let's see how much your prints would get, though... :)

zinedi: Great camera - not only for IQ equalizing the FF quality in compact size, but also for handling comfort - Fuji is listening to PHOTOGRAPHERS not consumers - and classic range-finder style. Looking forward to hold my copy.

"IQ equalizing the FF quality"? You might want to check the samples again, at 100%

arpikusz: Is it just me or do these pictures have two things in common?

1. bad light
2. bad composition

And sometimes bad white balance. :(

This is not an art gallery... in my opinion, the only thing I dislike is X-trans performance...

gsum: If the RX1 could match the Sigma Merrill, I'd be impressed:

But it doesn't.

Why wouldn't it match Nikon 1? Nikon 1 is not a great camera... and Sigma's Foveon can match high-end pro DSLRs image quality in my opinion (at low iso, that is)

chiumeister: no way the 50 1.4 can be $1500, unless it's a 1.2

Zeiss 55mm 1.4 (with manual focus) for Nikon is what... 3000 EUR? Comparing to that, it's... much better...
Leica's 50 1.4 is also over 3000...
And this is aimed to be in the same high-end category.

Benarm: Even after Canon heavily and purposely handicapped the 6D, I bet the DPR will still give it a Silver Award. :) Oh well, lets see what Canon does with the upcoming 7D Mark II.

His Sony "toy" is probably the best camera in its class, and half the price of the 6D. Different classes, brand hater, you can't compare them!

Why would anyone buy this since there's Scarlet-X out there, better in any aspects...?

Footay: Adam Koplan is a very perceptive person indeed. As proof, he chose to review a book that included an essay by Andrei Condrescu, who happens to be a genius and an American treasure.

Why is he an american treasure, since he's romanian?:-?
