I am still here, but not as frequently as before. Too many posts still forever trying to compare Bayer vs. Foveon vs. Quattro, as if there is nothing better to do.

Sorry to be so bold, but that's driving people away.

That hits close to home, since I figure about half the posts doing this were started by me over the past year or two.

Sorry if that stuff bothers you so much, but 95% of the posts on this forum are NOT about such comparisons. (I actually just went back over the past 120 posts to see.) Maybe I'm overestimating the number of posts I have started that compare Sigma vs CFA (i.e. my purple color samples were in a thread that I didn't start), but certainly I do start a lot of those threads, and if people realy have been driven away by the 1 in 20 posts about comparing Foveon to CFA or Merrill vs Quattro, I am sorry my posts have had such an affect.

For vacations, I am using a Sony with Zeiss zoom. Why? Because processing hundreds of photos afterwards is not fun in SPP. Simple as that.

Shoot Sigma stuff still locally for great IQ.

I have taken the SDQ on short vacations, and shooting DNGs, but it's a heavy camera, and I am approaching 70.

Sandy has become quiet after her aging mother needed lots of help; since then she has bene absent here; she hasn't responded to my emails either.

Laurence still posts occasionally, but due to his accident, of course also way less.

Carl Ritterfalk seems to have moved on as well.
