In the 1970s the relatively new Photo Academia represented by the Visual Studies Workshop, Afterimage Magazine, Society for Photographic Education and many relatively new MFA programs--- were struggling to gain Art World Legitimacy. Part of that quest was the embrace of Postmodernism with its snarky cynicism, celebration of the banal, rejection of the beautiful and a compulsion to talk, talk, talk about "images." It is little wonder that the Pet Rock was popular in that same decade.
Psych, it is nice (for a change) to see someone unafraid to let some shadow areas go dark---or even black! Lovely tonality on this overcast day.
rar133: most people here never laid hands on the camera and are already bashing it.
when (or if) fuji bring out a FF, then compare it to a leica FF. we all know you love leica and hate fuji. or love nikon and canon and hate fuji blah blah....
lets make a simple comparison.... leica body + 1 lens = $ 10,000
x pro 1 system: $ 1700 + 3x $ 500 = $ 3200 which obviously will not be as INCREDIBLE IQ as a leica ( maybe 80% of the quality??)
what could i possibly do with $ 6800???
option 1: buy a car and drive around to take picturesoption 2: if in europe, travel across the continent to take picture, same for africa and america...option 3: go around the world and take picturesoption 4: buy a D7000, or 7D or 5D or D700 plus some lenses....option 5: let the x pro 1 go under a truck and buy a new one, let it fall down a canyon and buy one again....
hmmm... WOW i still have change for a Big mac meal and watch a movie.
maybe 102%?right now Fuji is claiming it out resolves 21MP FF Canon 5DIIwe shall see
