  • Mirror lockup. The more difficult issue to get around is shutter induced vibration. This is why Nikon redesigned shutter on D810.

  • A little size. Also, potentially lens sharpness. I'm not sure about that Tamron 16-300, but most superzooms are pretty bad at the long end, and I know at least the RX10 is suppose to be pretty...

  • I lean to the "if he needs advice, don't do it" camp, but since he probably will anyway: Add off camera flash rotation bracket (absolute MUST for indoors to avoid shadows on the walls) and no less ...
  • Replied in ditto
  • 40 would make a lot of difference. You are correct that 64 equiv is a little short on for great portrait work, though not significantly so compared to 24-70 2.8 FF lenses that, while not ideal for...

  • @Digitail, what in the world does your post have to do with my comment? Makes no sense at all. I didn't say it wasn't a mistake, or should have won. I said the only possible excuse I would cut...

  • I see a lot of complaints about the tilted horizon. It's possible that the photographer intended it that way I supposed, but since I don't want to waste the time looking up the rules, I'm wondering...

  • "And those same workers could have been the employees of the private companies running the same parks if there were no government grab of the land. They would have also earned more, because they...

  • It isn't really a theoretical thing, it's pretty simple science actually. It is the same sensor in Panasonic's 16mp M43 cameras with the outside 25% or so cropped out. So, lens quality were equal,...

  • What I have trouble reconciling is the physical lens size versus max aperture. The lenses on the 1 series, take the 10-30 kit for example, are much larger than the equivalent fixed lenses on 1"...

  • I think the replies are a little harsh...I see OP's point, but the argument isn't very well made. First, you don't just throw away a camera if you upgrade, an RX100 I is still worth over half what...

  • I want to love the X30, It's got a great retro rangefinder appeal, solid ergonomics, Fuji image processing (which I still miss after years of moving away from their discontinued professional DSLR...
