On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1425 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: I'm thinking that Pana may be release a LX8 some time later with sensor smaller than M43, otherwise Pana will have no high-end P&S to fill the $300-$500 price range.

It may be the reason that this M43 LX is LX100, but not lot of people will buy a $900 P&S. They may be still interested in LX7 over LX100, but LX7 is kind of aged.

Possible?

Mike FL,

OK, I didn't know that, but it's unusual to put the LX7 or any other enthusiast compact in that category, because, apart from the size, they don't have all that much in common with regular compacts, they are very much in a category of their own.

Mike FL. Sounds strange to hear the LX7 described as a P&S. Compact it is, but it's not a P&S in the true sense of the word. But more to the point, I wonder how the fixed lens on the LX100 will compare to the Zuiko 12-35mm.

On Yellow in the A To Z - Letter Y challenge (2 comments in total)

As lots of folks here know by now, I am no fan of flower shots. But I quite like this one. Makes you wonder, though, what makes the other flower shots better, because, quite simply, they are not !

BYRON MCD 77-81: Call it sour grapes if you want, but close up pictures of flowers/petals,
a subject that anyone with a cheap compact with macro capability could do - the sort of pics teens or younger kids like to take, do very well in these challenges ! Photography - wise, not very challenging for supposedly skilled individuals with relatively expensive gear. Seems like an immature approach for a keen photographer who can't find anything else to shoot. Not very adventurous, is it ? I often wish that hosts would ask participants not to take flower petals,stalks and suchlike. And all this coming from someone who absolutely loves: flowers, plants,babies and kittens.

Honestly, can't help but agree on all points. Doe eyed kids are not my favourite subject either. Glad to see that there are only two or three such examples here. Imagine if there were twenty four of them ! But I suppose twenty four flower/petal shots is fine.

BYRON MCD 77-81: Really nice image and interesting concept. Definitely one of my favourites.

You're welcome. It must have taken some effort. I think you achieved what you wanted, and apart from it being a very pleasing image, it is proficiently done. Good for you.

No, he aint. Let's be politically incorrect, for once. We're getting this stuff rammed down our throats, and I'm bloody well fed up with it. That, my friend, is no lady.

I just feel like putting on an Irish accent and saying, ''would you look at that stuff!'' Don't care what those big sensor people say, I think 4/3 users are in a league of their own. We should do this more often.

On Facade - Porto Portugal in the Four Thirds Sensor Challenge challenge (1 comment in total)

Good one ! A bit more below and a bit less on top, perhaps a little desaturation, and it would have been great. Really nice shot,though.

On Engineer & Iron Horse in the Four Thirds Sensor Challenge challenge (2 comments in total)

Really nice image ! Strangely enough though, when I first saw the shot, it so reminded me of the quality you'd get from an E3 or E30. But then again, I hadn't noticed the iso !

You know what I mean. With the older gear, anything over 400 iso and you're asking for trouble.

Really nice image and that lens looks to be every bit as good as they say it it is.

On IMG_7637 - Bronze in the Large Aperture #2 challenge (1 comment in total)

In my opinion, this is really one of the best shots that illustrates the effects of shooting open aperture. If this was a photographic exercise, which in many ways it is, I'd give you top marks.
