joyclick: Sony have an obssessive,compulsive need to to do something they think is earth-shaking.They haven't yet produced one solid,enduring,reliable,loved,workhorse like Cannikon have done.Most of their stuff becomes history too soon until the next earth-shaking misadventure.

Panasonic,Olympus have better offerings than Sony with a smaller sensor

I respect Olympus for many reasons but clearheadedness is one of their best of virtues.They know what they are doing and why,unlike a lot of others.

On article Juggling with one hand: Leica M10 shooting experience (497 comments in total)
In reply to:

hteasley: I shoot rangefinders primarily, but I get GAS not infrequently, and end up with some new awesome toy that's supposed to be amazing.

And I get more keepers shooting manually with a Leica than I do with an auto-focus modern marvel. I'm faster focusing manually than I am shooting with autofocus. I generally end up selling the new kit a few months after purchase, because I do better shooting manually.

The pause for autofocus drives me crazy: and I've gone for cameras that are specifically touted as "fastest focus ever", and I'm just never happy with them: they focus fast on the wrong thing, or hunt for what I want. The UI for choosing where to focus is never great or fast, and the guesses the camera makes are generally awful.

Rangefinders are super small, and deliver the quality of more mammoth cameras. And when you take the time to learn to shoot manually, on a camera with a UI so perfectly designed to shoot manually, auto-everything kits start to look nuts after a while.

I wear eyeglasses,would a rangefinder be a better option for me?
