Tyr-Sog: haha, how many times I whipped the car over to get a shot with the kids in the car.

I try to explain it to people but they just don't get it. I'm always looking at the world though I'm looking through a OVF.

My wife has learned to live with it. She knows how precious and fleeting that light is.

Vetteran: While in graduate school in Monterey California in 1982/1983, through a mutual friend, I had the opportunity to go over to Adam's home and meet him. I felt a little awkward in his presence with him being such an icon. I mean what do you say to him that he hasn't already heard. So we pretty much made small talk. He asked a few questions about physics, mostly about light, (physics was my major), and showed me around his gallery in his his house. Prior to leaving he autographed a few of his books for me. The following year, I also had him sign a set of his posters at his last book signing in Carmel CA. He passed shortly after that signing.

The photos in his house that he showed me went on tour after his death across the country as part of an AT&T sponsored thing; not sure. Anyway, it was really special meeting him. I'll never forget.

Cool!

ChicagoInPhotographs: So I'm curious to know all things being equal.... Are the 50mp in a medium format sensor the same as 50mp in a 35mm sensor?

the quantity is the same but each would be larger, or did I miss something in your question?

This is as wonderfully beautiful as their Sony rebadge cameras were BAD. Well done Hassy!

Nice photos. Great to see this camera used in the manner it is most likely to be used. I would love to see some wildlife and BIF photographers have their say and show examples as well.

On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (472 comments in total)

While the Sony seems like a great camera, destroying cameras that are 2/3 the size and less than 2/3 the price seems an obvious thing. Like saying that a 24-105 L lens destroys a nifty 50 lens.

Your cryptic response to my benign comment is just weird.

Do Dewalt and Makita users fuss over drill reviews this much or do they just go with the brands they have batteries and accessories for? Yes, I realize these tools are 5K v. a hundred bucks but still, the reviews and the pixel peeping will be unlikely to sway many users of these superb artist tools. I am looking forward to these reviews though. 2016 seems to be a bump up in a slowing evolution of cameras.

Battersea: Two years for a review? It's hard for people to not wonder why a review of an important camera would take two years. That's like 4 generations of Sony cameras or something.

Yes, I know, I read the reasons. Appreciate your new tests, hope you guys publish in a more timely manner, thanks for your hard work etc etc.

Well done Pentax! I hope others will use similar techniques.

Battersea: I love my G16. It is perfect for what it is a 1/1.7 sensor in a camera refined and refined to the point of brilliance. I really hope the new G7x Mark ii comes close to the speed and handling of the G16.

THe optical view finder is not a very good one anyway though.

In reply to:

Ansel Spear: Why do some of you across The Pond insist on referring to lenses and bodies as 'copies' of lenses and bodies?

They are not copies of lenses and bodies. They ARE lenses and bodies in their own, original, genuine bona fide right.

There isn't a 'master' lens or body from which all others are copies. You don't buy a copy of a car or a copy of a can of beans, so why a lens or a body.

Not that I feel strongly about it! :-)

It's funny when Americans tell the English how to speak English. It is their language after all, So I am pretty sure they know how to use it. British also use it in much more creative ways than Americans.

Battersea: The photo compositions are excellent. Maybe that says a lot about the camera's usability.

I agree with Raist3d that it is about the photographer however, we also know that usability contributes to great shots. A bad photographer, like myself, would benefit more from great usability than a great photographer, that's why I'm always interested in how a camera handles :)
