HappyVan: What about lens selection? EM1 may be the favour of the day. But, APSC lens selection for DSLR is way better.
For example, Sigma 18-35 1.8 matches DOF control of FF. What is the EM1 equivalent?
You can cherry-pick and nit-pick from among my thousands of shots and dozens of DPR Challenge entries all you want. That sort of ad-hominem attack won't fix your photography or enhance your reputation one whit.
Meanwhile, I will continue to be selected as photographer of the month on other sites, I will continue to accept paying clients as I please, I will continue to win and place well above average in DPR Challenges, I will continue to let my photographs be used on books and in published articles and marketing materials.
You will continue to attempt to buy your way out of a lack of taste and skill. You will continue to lecture others to do the same. You will continue to troll until forced to stop.
Honey, you are none of those photographers.
You don't sell because nobody likes your stuff. Nobody thinks you're the better photographer. NOBODY. I do better work in a week than you do in a year. Or ever. There are lots of photographers to admire but you're not one of them. You collect haters like a hobby. You're a troll. That's what you do. You lecture people on photography and no one takes your advice. You're a troll.
Why do you own so many cameras and have so little to show for it?
You recently paid $900 on a lens so you could take a picture of a parking lot. A parking lot.
Yes, I am in a position to pass judgment on your snapshots.
If I'm getting $5 results on a $5 lens that means I'm getting better value for my money than you. Heck, I've even been paid for photos I took with a point & shoot. And there you are, hiding behind your anonymous account with a $3,000 camera and a $900 lens for what? Why do you own so many cameras with so little to show for them?
Answer the question: why do you own so many cameras? Especially since your photos show such a limited repertoire of style, skill, and ability? You have one of practically everything Nikon sells. How is that not the exact OPPOSITE of versatile???
If HappyVan thinks a system needs to be versatile, then why does he own so many different cameras? Are Nikon's systems so limited that he needs a compact, a mirrorless, an APS-C, and a full frame? This is especially confusing considering the very limited range and skill set of HappyVan's photography, which as far as anyone can tell seems to consist almost entirely of snapshots in broad daylight.
HappyTroll, you should try entering one of these challenges.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!Like that'll ever happen! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
HappyVan: Sounds like more of the mirrorless nonsense.
At one point, mirrorless was the next big thing. Heavily promoted by cultists and websites. The DSLR was a dinosaur, they say. Today, mirrorless is in retreat even in Japan. Why is that?
Any camera is a tool. All it means is that Barney is doing snapshots at the moment for social sharing. Will he ever return to photography as an art? Will he ever need to zoom?
This coming from a guy who owns every Nikon from a compact to a mirrorless to an enthusiast to a full frame. And his pictures speak louder than his words.
Well done, Bob!
I liked this better than my entry. The lighting is like a classic painter's still life.
