  • I have the Sigma 17-70 C for my K5iis and I think it's a very nice lens for the money. I find it quite sharp for the most part, the build quality is excellent and feels very solid, it's nicely ...
  • I'd say it's more of an odd comment than anything else. The camera he says he wants exists now as the K3. The new FF doesn't look much larger than the current lineup, so not seeing what he's ...
  • You may also want to consider sending it to Steve Swerington at http://www.cameraclinicusa.com . His name is often tossed around Canon film forums due to the quality of his work on older Canons. ...
  • Advanced apologies for post length, however . . . . One of the most damaging and often propagated myths among photographers is the idea that pros or truly talented photographers never take bad ...
  • Replied in Young people!
    No worries, you're good. There was a parenthesis and period tacked on to the URL itself that put the kabosh on it. I deleted them and saw it no problem. And you're right - looked different, but ...
  • Replied in Young people!
    Seriously though, I'm all for them going after whomever they feel will allow them to prosper. Knowing Ricoh's past history of camera designs, they've always been one to make cameras that push the ...
  • Replied in Young people!
    Even more badass is the idea that dinosaurs probably tasted like chicken then.
  • Then you're IT guy is actually not very good. 5 mins of work to install and run 5.1 on a VM on my iMac running Mavericks, using a copy of Word I DL'd for free from a Mac abandonware site. Not even ...
  • You're right, ML cameras are not the size they are due to any physical limitations. They're the size they are due to marketing and nothing more, because there's no reason they couldn't make a ML ...
  • I think you're looking at the past with rose colored glasses - or at least being a bit selective. You can't compare a modern AF, motorized DSLR with a 70's-80's MF 35mm film camera and be ...
  • Personally, I never understood the need some have to collect lenses. If you need it and it fills that need, then sure, buy it. Otherwise it's just a waste of money and space. I shoot all my paid ...
  • You misread his post, which admittedly wasn't quite as clear as it could be. He means a lens with a focal length 20-35mm longer than what he has now. In other words, something around 55-75mm in total.
  • In all honesty, the best thing is to download some RAW files from the cameras you're interested in and put them through your usual workflow to see how they perform for you and if you like what you ...
  • People have given you a number of good suggestions already, so the only thing I can add is that for difficult situations like this the only real answer is a combination of a reasonably good ...
  • They'll likely do what Nikon has done since the D3, which is to use a shaded mask to define the cropped area. D3 offers a APS-C mode and a 5:4 crop, and newer cameras also offer a 1.3 crop as ...
  • Good choice, the IS will come in handy. Basically, shoot f5.6-f8. Use a polarizer if you have one to control reflections. Ideally, if you can take a monopod, that would be the best. Flash would ...
  • OMG!! Full-frame, film, and a cat. That's gotta be the hat trick of evil to someone, somewhere.
  • Ok, a bit of a pricey option, but for what you're doing you may want to check out a Fuji X-T1. It'd tick most of the boxes you've addressed so far, has your flippy screen, decent low-light ...
  • Ok, so first thing to do: RELAAAAAAAAAX!  (∪ ̄ ㋓  ̄∪)  It's just a camera, not the end of the world. There's no time limit that you have to decide within and the G12 still will work while you ...
  • The photographer in your post bears a strong resemblence to a photograper near me who has gained quite a bit of notoriety taking very similar photos and posting them very publicly: Faceburgh in ...
