Tired of cameras with mis-aligned lenses
Thanks for the feedback... this is actually the reason I like to use my DSLR, even though in theory its sensor is not as capable as some of the most recent ones. The lenses are great, and it's deterministic: every photo is either sharp, or it's operator error. The camera is just not something I have to worry about.
With my compact cameras, the potential sharpness is great, but I always have to remember which side each one is a bit soft when shooting landscape... I can never trust the quality of the results.
The irony is that I would happily pay twice as much for a properly built and QC camera; I would much rather have one good camera than be in my current quest for a better one. Cameras are incredibly cheap by any measure; I cannot believe that $300 can get an LX7. Yet, I'd gladly pay more for more quality control.
I wish that Dpreview bought their cameras, selecting them at random... the images they have in the reviews are always unrealistically perfect compared to what I get from real cameras.
