  • Until I was arrested for offensive behaviour, which I very likely would be. I very much suspect the tiger would be seized and I would be charged or fined for dangerous behaviour. Because in most ...
  • Being a beginner doesn't mean you should necessarily start with the cheapest or oldest option. Buy the best gear you can reasonably afford.
  • That sounds good - thank you. I had an a6000 for a few years and an a7ii for a little while and have a stack of e-mount adapters so am halfway there.
  • Is your position that all censorship is intolerable? Are you ok with unrestricted distribution of child pornography? Snuff films? Rape imagery? Bestiality? I know these are extreme examples, but ...
  • Can I legally walk down the street naked in your city? Can my wife and I have sex in the park in the middle of the day in your city? Can I stand on a street corner in your city screaming ...
  • Why is it crucial? I can easily why many would consider it preferable to remain so, but why crucial?
  • Absolutely. This is an excellent and very important point. Virtually instant and uncontrollable mass distribution has really changed the issues. This for me goes together with the issue of a ...
  • I have to say that in my case, the decision about what system to choose for my forthcoming upgrade is (still) driving me a bit crazy. The upgrade has been delayed by a few months (it's from an ...
  • Assuming you are talking about 24-200 FF equivalent angle of view (16-135 actual focal length) - absolutely yes!! I am going to be upgrading in a few months and deciding what to get is driving me ...
  • True. And all those nice 50mm and 55mm lenses can be great for portraits
  • While I don't agree with the "the FF advantage is just hype" position, it might make sense that it only works in one direction. Let's say for the sake of the argument that m4/3 is at the lower ...
  • I believe Don was referring to problems with the dodgy tripod mount on the E-M5iii. Hopefully it has been fixed in later production runs. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4498810 https://www. ...
  • Another vote for the Konica 40mm 1.8. I've also got 135mm 3.5 and 50mm 1.7. All are excellent. I have a bunch of old lenses, including various Minoltas, a couple of Takumars, Meyer-Optik Goerlitz ...
  • I assume they've fixed that in more recent copies of that body. Of course, that may be a rather rash assumption... You were once DPR's Olympus golden boy, Don. I hope Sony paid you well for your ...
  • The Catholic Church is always involved! πŸ˜†
  • I know you are asking these questions of the OP, but if I may come in just on this point... 'Murder' or homicide is legally defined as an act of killing that is unlawful; a violation of the ...
  • Replied in Nikon z
    Including Canon RF lenses? What about L mount? Are there any m4/3 to Z adapters/converters? Fujifilm X to Nikon Z? The various medium format to Z?
  • I've owned both of these, but only the mark i versions of each (and now an EM-10ii), so am no real use to you, but will suggest you post this on the micro four thirds forum if you haven't already. ...
  • Replied in Competition
    I cannot recall Nikon or any other company making that claim. Can you link to a couple of examples? Or maybe just acknowledge this as a straw man argument? Companies like Nikon offer adapters as an ...
  • "Is that a normal length fast aperture crop sensor camera lens in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?".
