Richard Butler "You're welcome to your opinion but I'm struggling to think of any clothing I own that has pockets that can fit a Sigma DPm."

1st the often used "YMMV"; now we have "YPMV" (your pockets may vary). Anyone have an LL.Bean catalogue they can send him?

I was not aware of the original story and did not see the picture until this article. I think the image is hilarious! There certainly appears to be intelligence and humor behind those (selfie) eyes.
I also found it comical that in this current article "of press and the photo wound" can just as meaningfully be pronounced as 'photo wound'; like in 'ouch'.

IMHO those are some of the best "out-of-the-box" imaginative photos I have ever viewed.

dlkeller: B&H doesn't list VC as one of the features in the Sony version. If this is true Sony A mount users are being screwed again. Hope it isn't true as it looks like a lens I would buy--but not if VC is left of my version.

With no VC for the Sony model, I hope that means it will be cheaper than the models with VC. If not, 'then' I would say "Sony A mount users are being screwed."

"Though the site mentions you have to take a lot of shots and check the results because you can't see through the viewfinder, it's worth pointing out that using an SLR with a swivel screen would allow you to compose while you shoot."

Another alternative is to put a small mirror behind the camera at about a 45 degree angle. The LCD image will be upside down but still very helpful in composition.

And to all the Nay Sayers - you either
a) don't have any imagination or initiative and don't appreciate those who do.
b) think the idea is cool but your jealous you didn't think of this idea.
c) never heard of Angus MacGyver.
d) afraid to get your feet wet because you don't like water.
e) don't like fish because your pet goldfish bit your finger when you were 3 yrs old.

On Composition Basics in Macro Photography article (73 comments in total)

It is a good article for novices and for those of us advanced amateurs as a reminder.

One thing that could have been mentioned, however briefly, is the crop 'format'. Some of your images could have been improved yet again with the 'square format'.
