I'm pretty macho, so I figure with VR I'll be handholding that baby at 1/125 of a second.

French people are a little edgier than Americans. They can probably handle this. Also, Trey is almost making the "Gallic Shrug," the national gesture of France.

Hey, is there an American national gesture?

In reply to:

PK24X36NOW: Certainly not "smaller;" it is in fact exactly the same size as the 70-200 f 2.8 OS (3.4 x 7.8"). It has ONE less glass element, so it might be a teensy bit lighter, but not enough so that it makes any difference. This despite having LESS depth of field isolation at maximum aperture (a truly "equivalent" APS-C would have to be a stop faster, which would actually not only make it lose the supposed size and weight "advantage," it would actually make it heavier than the FF equivalent, based on this lens' specs).

Sigma needs to ditch this OS line. Their ergonomics suck, and as noted below, the prices are too high to make them attractive alternatives to Nikon/Canon glass.

You don't have to buy it.

K_Photo_Teach: The Nikon 808 has a tiny lens and doesnt seem limited by the lens. Some tests here: http://www.gsmarena.com/pureview_blind_test-review-773p3.php
compare is favourably with even FF DSLRs.

Nokia 808.

Why doesn't DxO support this camera already? They are sooooo lame!

bigdaddave: Good luck using a Leica in that neighborhood

53rd and 5th Ave in Manhattan is one of the most expensive locations in the world. It's also the location of the historic Saint Thomas Church. If there's anywhere a Leica fits in, it would be there.

Faintandfuzzy: Good lord. A bunch of posts by a bunch of whiners who are just bitter they can't afford this new camera.

Nonsense. I have pre-ordered mine, and chosen its place in my display case already.

In reply to:

jimkahnw: Others in this thread asked how does Sternfeld's images differ from the average snap shooter? Why is a dull, gone-to-seed urban image art? A baby in a laundry basket--why is that art? Cut-off the mother's head could be just sloppy photography; had I made the shot I would have included the mom. The girl in slippers and jump rope in cheesey pose, perhaps this is a social comment; but is it art? Why are these images centered? The self-appointed "experts" declare a body of work "art," and their visually illiterate sycophants concur. The rest of us puzzle and wonder what is the photographer seeing that we should see? In photography, documentary can be mistaken for art. If an image informs, but does not uplift can it be art? Wegee's gritty news pictures 80 years later put on the wall get called art. Zoe Strauss's recent show at the Phily Art Museum was a disturbing document that left me depressed; it wasn't art for me. Compare these images to those by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliot Erwitt.

I think you are right. HCB and EE were known Leica shooters, ergo, their work is art by definition. ;)

HiRez: I can't think of a worse, more confusing name for a filter-making company.

How about if they called it "Tung Kee Noodle House?"

These are the trivial. I am not giving the ass of the rat perspectiving aforementioned issue.

I won't blather about it, but I like a lot of these images.

plasnu: Am I the only one who prefers unprocessed image?

This is not a trolling. I honestly thought the processed image is overdone and not beautiful at all, so I'm curious what the other people think.

Xellz, there is enough output in a Nikon SB 700 speedlight to take this shot and illuminate the interior.
