Honestly, I've not been very impressed with any of the "real world" samples I've seen on DP Review lately, from any camera. I find it hard to judge a camera's capabilities when looking at photos that I find rather poorly conceived and executed. It's as if the photographer's are struggling to find something, anything to shoot just to meet a deadline. I'd much rather look at the lame test shots, such as found on the in-depth reviews here or on the Imaging Resource site. At least then I can view and compare images with sufficient ranges of color and detail. I'm still quite interested in this LX100, and am on the list to receive one when B&H gets their first shipment.
With all due respect to CaseyComo and his/her spouse, my experiences working for a Danaher company have been quite different. I have worked for the same company for over 26 years, and we were purchased by Danaher a few years ago. Since our acquisition by Danaher, we have actually grown our business in both dollar volume, market share and profitability. As a result, our head count has increased dramatically, including promoting from within and recruiting new employees. Danaher has not meddled in our day to day business. Instead, we have implemented the sound Danaher business practices that focus mostly on honesty and integrity in dealing with customers, suppliers and employees. Danaher's remarkable record of growing companies over the long haul, NOT buying, trashing, and selling them, accounts for the continual success of Danaher. I hope the people at X-Rite experience the same positive results that my company has enjoyed. Also, best wishes to Casey's spouse.
It's a pity that the date rule applies here. I was just about to submit a photo for this challenge and thankfully read the full rules before doing so. There are so few entries in this challenge because of that rule I guess, because I can imagine that a lot of people have shots they'd like to submit but can't. Not all of us can run out after a challenge has been announced and shoot the best photo, but we might have the perfect shot that we took fairly recently. Oh well.
