Article subject was always a mystery for me. I remember early visits to art museums looking at paintings in awe, but loosing this feeling as soon as reading the title.

In reply to:

stan_pustylnik: What I'm not getting - why during entire interview about Alpha DSLR - DSLT users didn't receive reassurance about A-mount continuation! Remember first Sony Alpha A-100, it was DSLR!

As a-mount photographer, only thing I heard was A7r2 bla-bla-bala, A7s bla-bla-bla for 30+ minutes. Then for less than a minute: "We'll continue with A-mount". Without telling about "dedicated A-mount camera production". What a waste of my time!

Customer's voice is telling you - build new generation of native A-mount camera bodies! Thanks for A77II, but we also need A99II and A55II!

On article When Bad Weather Means Great Photography (28 comments in total)

It is matter of "unusual". Doesn't matter if this is super macro that out-resolves human eye resolution, bad weather conditions when "normal person" sits at home, night photography that also out-resolves human eye's capabilities, stop action of bullet or broken glass, far land landscapes, well taken portrait.

Every time people say "Wow that is amazing photograph" - it is statement of personal discovery.
