I was thinking about buying one for my girlfriend for her birthday. I guess not now. I might be able to get one that has a serial number after 41xxxxx....
Rather a shame, she liked it.
Personally I've been a huge fan of his for years. He's always been honest and I think takes a real world perspective on how the user is going to use the camera. While his image quality tests aren't as scientific as DPR, I feel that they reflect how the person is going to use the camera.
GaryJP: At the point when even Fuji acknowledge the issues, and say they will have a "DEFINITIVE" solution, you have to wonder why some people are such devoted "fans" they continue to suggest it should not be mentioned or discussed.
If we had all listened to them, there would be no fix in the works even now .
So I guess at this point it comes down to their personal pride and their refusal to admit they might be wrong even when Fuji admits it.
So how come Olympus didn't recall the E-PL2? I have sensor flare all the time....I guess more fuji fans than Olympus fans?
As an owner and reader of both books, I actually like this one better than The Photographer's Eye. The use of examples is excelent and find the text very readable. On some of his references to specific artists or photographers I found myself looking them up for reference and found his references enlighting. I agree with some of the other posters that this book is easier to be read in chunks than as a whole.
Because folks are brainwashed....LOL!. The Nikon isn't a bad system, mind you, but most folks are clueless about Olympus and Panasonic when compared to Nikon.
