About me:

I have been fortunate and financially able to retire early. Now being a few years older, I just take life one day at a time and with no worries. Admittedly, I'm just a happy vacation and family snapshooter with no photographic skills at all, and I really don't care. I have no ego.
I'm not one of those self-centered, miserable, lacking in any social skills, socially isolated chaps lurking the forums spewing rude and inappropriate comments on others. You know who they are. But I really appreciate all the helpful people here who offer positive comments and suggestions.
I'm here to learn more about photography. And to appreciate images taken by others. Photography is just a hobby for me, and my life is not centered around it. That's it.

In reply to:

Irakly Shanidze: Red accents and shiny stainless carbines are wonderful if you want to be more visible than you really are :)
Wax coating and plastic clips are also features that show how well-informed Domke now is about what real photographers need.

PS perhaps red zippers are for canon users to match red rings on L lenses :)

Does it withstand 212 degrees Fahrenheit.?

KodaChrome25: Do they make a female version?

Yes.
Like your knickers, Domke's come in many colours, styles, and fits. Get a few to match your knicks. :)

OhioPhoto: MY two favorite quotes about camera bags, and I can't remember who said either.

When asked how many camera bags he had, the photographer responded: "somewhere between way too many and not nearly eonough."

And ...

"I used to make fun of all of my wife's handbag collection until I became a photographer. Now I just keep my mouth shut."

Camera bag G.A.S. is like your knickers in different colours, styles, and fits, You can't just have one, but need many, ;)

brotherwarner: I don't like the domke, because for me it looks ugly like an camera bag. My favorite camera bag is the medium messenger from compagnon:

http://compagnon-bags.com/en/product-category/leather-camerabags

I use Wotancraft leather messenger bag when carrying full MFT kit.
ONA Bowery in cognac leather when I'm just carrying my Pen F with single lens, or Fuji X100T. Both bags of bespoke quality and inexpensive.
A beat up 15 year old Domke F2 when I'm just slumming around.

I took mine apart just to see if I could reassemble it. Easy. Try it with your camera.

The camera bag business must be a real money maker. I have over a dozen assorted bags to match my high heel shoes. You?

On article Hands on with Sony's a6300 and G Master lenses (289 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joe Belmont: I have had the a6000 for about a week -- bought it with kit lens for less than $500. An amazing, even astonishing camera. (I have owned Nikon and Canon and still love my Olympus OMD.) I think the a6300 is Sony's way of getting a more appropriate price for its a6000 technology. It is just the most amazing camera. I bought it for the moving subject tracking and low light performance. Bigger is better in viewfinders and maybe someone needs 4K video. So the a6300 at $1,000 is still a good deal. But the a6000 is - I've already said it - amazing and a true steal.

Sucks?

Looks like an ideal lens as a replacement to my venerable Panny 14-45 OIS zoom. For carry-all travel lens use on GX7. Too bad not f/ 2.8.
Pre-ordered.

In reply to:

Jefftan: why not buy 14-140mm, similar weight and similar size, 10x zoom

Shutter shock. That's why.

It's too much money for what it offers, IMO.
Wonder what the actual street price will be once the early adopters get theirs.

Does the MKII finally fixed the dust in lens issue that plagued the original GR?
