With all due respect, I could never understand why people would pay so much money in order to ruin a potentially good photography subject.

I can ruin a good subject for 1% of the price paid for these lenses so why bother? I must be missing something...

Please don't take it personally, it is part of my usual sarcasm.

From you never, you're the Poppa Moti...

You get paid for it Moti...I don't...so i get to play while you work...not fair is it?

Why not fair? I do play too, all the time even during work and and I think it is important and fun. It is just that sometime I expect to see something different from such an expensive piece of gear.

My daughter loves these shots and they will be here for her after I am long gone, knowing her dad took the shots is something she'll remember all her days...I know I have many photos that my dad took in my early years and while not Ansel Adams shots, they are treasures to me...

I would never argue with that but I can assure you one thing. Your daughter will always love and cherish and treasure your photos and remember all her days that YOU took these photos and not that you were using a 1,600$ piece of gear.

My RX1 was $2800 USD...EM1 + 42.5 f/1.2 = $2900 USD...A7r + FE 55mm = $3300 USD...

So all in the ball park...

It's going to get cheaper Moti, for sure, I can only imagine what you could do with this lens...really enjoyed your website...

Yes, I sold off some Sony gear to pay for it, thats what is so great about camera gear is it holds it's value so well...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
