On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2256 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jim Salvas: They got this wrong from the unboxing. You're not supposed to unbox a Leica. It's a collectible. It doesn't even have to work.

Unboxing it would reduce its value. Like those collectible figurines of various characters from SF/fantasy franchises.

Wubslin: I owned a Panasonic camera once and it made me give up photography.

@caver3d: You don't get it, do you? Every comment I read on this simply makes me despise photographers even more. No wonder I quit, I'm glad I'm no longer one of you.

And your reply to Biological_Viewfinder was just insulting and unhelpful.

@Artpt: Thanks, it's just not really my thing at the moment though.

Thanks for your insulting and inappropriate comment. It really added to the discussion.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1042 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ramjager: A stronger opponent with the 5DMk3 in terms of Autofocus?
You mean the Nikon AF system works this time or is it still sharp on the right soft on the left?
Funny how in the DPR D800 review no mention was made of the poor AF and QC issues which plagued the D800 bodies.
How many people went through multiple bodies to get one good one that had an AF system half as good as Canons...lots.
Yet hey it had 36MP its the king.
Your kidding yourseld DPR thinking some actually read and take your reviews seriously until you start reviewing properly and thoroughly.
But hey its got 36.3 MP and made by Nikon it must be good..right?

@DaveE1: I didn't know I had to be a Canon owner to criticise Nikon for their many failings.

But since I don't own anything by Canon your attempt at diversion has failed.

Wubslin: Another failure from Nikon. I guess I should be disappointed, but I can't even muster disappointment any more.

How Nikon are still in business is a mystery.

@HowaboutRAW: You're going to have to drop it, because I am not going to waste any more time explaining things to you.

Also, this constant attention is getting creepy.

Just saying.

@HowaboutRAW: I'm not sure what to say to that. You seem very keen for me to explain why I hate Nikon so much and will never buy any of their products. May I ask if you have some kind of motive beyond mere curiosity? Because it's beginning to seem that way, and quite frankly I'm finding it a bit uncomfortable.

Come to think of it, your username is familiar to me. I recall we have had a similar conversation before; during which you also pursued me, questioning my dislike for Nikon to what I thought was a rather excessive degree.

Far be it from me to offer advice but maybe it's time you dropped the subject.

@HowaboutRAW: And how about the first part of my reply where I said "It's a Nikon, 'nuff said" in response to your first question "Why is the D810 a "failure"?"

If you can't even be bothered reading what I write, why should I bother?

@HowaboutRAW: Again, you have deliberately ignored my reply to your question and then pretended it doesn't exist.

I see no purpose in continuing this discussion.

@HowaboutRAW: Um, yes, I *did* say whether I'd used the D810. It was one of those 'No's you chose to ignore in my previous reply.

Please continue pretending I haven't said anything, it's most entertaining.

In reply to:

stevens37y: Leica owners generally need no battery. They only collect cameras.

*Using* the camera...? Oh no, we can't have that. It'll reduce its value.

Leica were actually doing you a favour by stopping you turning it on and putting wear on the controls and the shutter.

Wubslin: Another overblown, overdone, oversized, overweight, overpriced failure from Nikon then?

Time to stick a fork in it.

@Mongoose777: Thanks for coming on here to defend your sponsor, I'm sure they appreciate it.

But you have to realise that I will never buy a digital camera, so while your arguments may work with other people, they will have no effect on me.

ngtszhodavid: Don't see why this is a big deal
probably cuz i'm not a professional photographer or sell my photos for living.

You would probably think differently if you sold your images for a living.

@HowaboutRAW: You're starting to sound like a Nikon fanboy with a statement like that. '...very good camera bodies.'

Really?

There is nothing to justify spending any money on these tired and derivative products.

I'm with Walmart on this one. No-one has the 'right' to take pictures of people.
