Thanks for also stressing the bokeh capabilities of this lens. Makes me want to swap camera system.

Wasn't fully convinced of center sharpness and CA-less-ness at f1,8 though.

Franz Weber: Why are drones resticted and guns not? Why are there "no shooting areas" with GPS lock?
Schools, airports and hospitals schould be blocked for shootin

Fortunately, we have the NRA to protect the use of guns against any restricting nonsense.

I reckon we need an NDA now.

Sadly, while M43 is a delightful system for the bulk-conscious, it isn't for the cost-conscious.

Do you consider the voice (mood, articulation etc.) appealing / ok / off-putting?

Could you explain where i could see the Britishness in this site?

(Aware that sample photos used to be from London and often are from the US now.)

That was not the point. The point is, DPR reported about Switzerland even though they are allegedly US-centric.

At least in my browser the photos appear glued to each other seamlessly along their upper and lower borders. I thought it didn't do the photos justice, there should have been some neutral space around each of them.

Oh sorry, i should have seen that.

The full text doesn't mention an OS - I must be stupid not to know it, or to have overlooked it

KevinG: i have never shot a wedding and go out of my way not to be "that guy" when I do attend one but I'm not understanding the black tape thing. Anyone?

Thanks!

I had thought DPR staff might cover with black tape the names of any prerelease models they're taking out into the wilds.

h2k: Sounds like a violation of many privacy and decency rules: Developing someone else's film (that feels already nosy) and printing those strangers' snaps in the paper - especially printing the strangers' self-portrait obviously without having contacted them.

It seems that the original camera owners approved of Dimoff's behaviour, but still.

I just changed my will so that all my cameras and storage devices are shreddered after my departure. Lest one of you goes ahead and thinks they can post to the public whatever they find.

"How do you contact someone you know nothing about, except how their parents looked?"

If i have a stranger's pictures. but can't contact them, that doesn't allow me to print their pictures.

If you wanted to find them, you could do a non-public face search with Google Photos or some such (i believe it's possible, but don't know for sure).

If you bought the camera in a second-hand store, it may still have been a stolen good. I don't know exactly about the law; but morally i wouldn't feel like the owner of a stolen item that i paid for in a second-hand store after that item had been stolen.

Pure propaganda, with not a millisecond's thought for the long term.
It would have been kinder to nuke the place to glass,
at least the innocent wouldn't have had to live on to starve or freeze to death.

OP, silence would have been golden, golden.

Hope this device is certified by relevant animal-rights bodies. Or else.
