Let me answer some of your stupidity:

4. Low Light Capability is strickly enhanced with wide angles and close proximity to the subjects. As in 3 above, wide angles allow me to get closer to the subject and maintain a reasonble frame. Pure Physics dictates that this enhances the amount of light reflected into my lense as intensity is an inverse function of distance from the source. Increasing distance diminishes light intensity. What a damned fool perspective you have.
You really don't want to challenge me on physics, idiot!

You are so wrong, technically, it is not just funny, it's hilarious!

(I just called my wife to the screen to take a look at your photo "pronouncements" She is now falling about, helpless with mirth. Thank you so much..... you have MADE our day.)

I won't challenge him on physics, either, because I know what illuminance, radiance, and reflectance are, and such knowledge will only provoke the OP to yet another round of insults.

I wonder, though, where he got his photographic training, because even five minutes with an incident light meter would have taught him how incredibly wrong he is.
