On Variation Facts and Fallacies article (231 comments in total)

In 44 years of fairly serious photography I have gotten 1 "bad" lens out of 12 I currently own. It was pretty obvious, I sent it back. The next one was also bad. The store would only replace that one if I signed a waiver that that was the last replacement. I foolishly did and got a third bad copy - I since have given that one away (to someone who is happy with it). All the other 12 have been more than good enough for me printing at up to 17X22. And I only judge the quality in a print.

Mr Fartleberry: You'd think Adobe would try to encourage more licensed seats rather than drive people away, eh Grumpy?

Well, I have bought every upgrade based on merit and my needs. If CS6 warrents buying, I'll evaluate it and probably buy it. Cost really isn't a factor for me.

In 45 years of shooting I will have to admit that 90% of my best shots were lucky spur-of-the-moment captures. Of course, knowing how to frame and compose instantly helps. This is both learned and inate.

Kenster: Sure, it's our constitutional rights to photograph such and such but also has to remember in good ol USA, how much justice can you afford? If you get arrested or detained, do you have $10,000 to pay for a criminal lawyer's retainer fee? Talk is cheap until you talk to a lawyer. Since most of us don't photograph for living, it's better to put your tail between the legs and jump through the loops~

This happened in Houston several years ago. Two brothers photographed cops from their own property as the cops beat a suspect. They were arrested and prosecuted. They got off, sued Houston and won a substantial sum - several hundred thousand dollars.
