  • No one wants to weigh in with an opinion...?
  • It seems like a lot of folks are still on it... I only checked it out a few months ago and now I'm on there a lot... and see a lot of really great photograher's work. I'm not on Instagram so I ...
  • I may have an opportunity to buy this lens for very cheap... I have a Canon to m4/3 adaptor even. Is there any reason not to pick this lens up? I think that the Rokinon's (unlike adapted manual ...
  • Ok... full confession, there are a number of "favorites" in my collection there on Flickr that I've chosen for what I have to admit is less than pure reasons. If someone either follows me or ...
  • No, I really don't think that it is. I'm merely just making an observation that the photographers I most admire are using certain camraes. I'm certainly not guilty of any kind of conformation bias ...
  • Created discussions Something I've noticed...
    I discovered Flickr a few monts ago and have been spending a lot of time there. Besides posting my own work, I like to get some inspiration from what other folks are doing and I've found a lot of ...
  • Really powerful... I like both versions. I have to give a nod though to the B&W one though I'm kind of biased that way. The low angle and the diagonal orientation really make it work.
  • I do plenty of experiencing my own hometown... and there is a nice challenge in that, to get shots that are interesting to you out of all-too-famialr surroundings. It is however nothing like the ...
  • I think that in some cases there definitely are bargains. My GH2 came with a 14-42mm kit lens that I understand is very highly regarded and sure enough, it preforms quite well. Of course it's not ...
  • Replied in OK
    Really nice photo... I personally don't think that it needs some greater point of focus and I don't even like the example used for that as much as your shot. I think that there is indeed a focus ...
  • No.... Mostly I only do non-travel photgrahy. I actually photograph a lot of really everyday scenes in my neighborhood. In a lot of ways that's a much more challenging way to create compelling ...
  • If I had money to spend, out of all of those options, I'd do some traveling. If I wasn't bound by money I'd go to either Brazil, Turkey or Indonesia (I live in the US). Other than that, if it had ...
  • The point isn't whether those lenses are affordable or that many people use them, but merely that they are some of the very finest optics available for the consumer and they are MF only. If some ...
  • Replied in Impossible
    MF lenses...? Then these folks really need to stop grilling you! A camera with a EVF is going to be MUCH better for manual focus than any kind of DSLR. I know that the A7 isn't considered as good ...
  • Replied in i'd go with...
    ... the Olympus system. This one is plenty capable, fast and much less to port around than that DSLR. Carry more weight in gear would be a deal breaker for me as I like to travel light. As for the ...
  • Replied in Impossible
    If you're talking about manual focus lenses, then I could see that something like an A7 would be much better than any DSLR...
  • That POP... or what is known as "selective focus" that you're speaking about has as much to do with understanding how that effect is achieved and being able to set up the camera and set up the ...
  • Replied in neither...
    I wouldn't get a new camera... as it doesn't sound like you'd be getting much out of the upgrade. The EM10 is a great camera with likely very similar image quality as something like the EM5II. ...
  • Well.... I think Blackberry, as popular as those phones once were, isn't really comparable to Nikon and Canon who have a user base that goes back 50+ years... and who have such a strong rep among ...
