"…the Mark III ditched the friendly curves for sharper, more aggressively-sculpted edges. Shame"

wth? they look almost the same, the changes are very subtle.

Imagemaven: At one point the photographer for sporting events had a single shot Graflex and created great images by looking anticipating and being a trained photographer. I applaud technology but there is a point of diminishing return in cameras for the still photographer.

compared to the beautiful 70s and 80s soccer photography, today's pics look like crap. super sharp and high iso and what not but uninspired and boring.

dennis tennis: Must I state the obvious? These people were breaking the law, trespassing on private property. They are ILLEGALS and must be killed. People who break the laws in American are trampling on the Constitution, traitor to Freedom and Democracy, and must be shot till dead. Liberal fascists with their relativism, bull hockey. You break the law, you pay with your lives. The law is the law. Illegal immigrants, deported, trespassers, killed. Done and done.

@barbakane i think you missed the irony in mr. dennis tennis post. he is well known on this board for his (fake) trumpist-like outrage.

Contra Mundum: They should disqualify any propaganda 'art' from participating, otherwise it becomes just as ridiculous as a Nobel peace prize.

@dennis tennis by far the best comment here

Holscen: I'd like to shoot a series of portraits of subjects sitting on chairs looking bored & depressed. I'd like to use one light. I'm after a dull, flat oppressive feel and a setup that only takes 5 minutes. Will this guide help?

nicolaiecostel: Nice and sharp but I'd invest in medium format if the sensor would be close to 6x45. This is glorified full frame.

glorified full frame is a nice description :)

rfsIII: Whoa...that night shot with the green streetlights—thanks to the Fuji's high resolution you can tell that the guy with the umbrella is hunting for replicants.
Beautiful work.

i agree! what a wonderful shot.

maxnimo: Photography is not as fun as it used to be - way too many great photographers out there have caused an oversaturation of greatness and excellence.

hmm, they have always been out there, just now you can see it because of the internet and mobile phones/social media.

StephanBG: Everyone here would sell his used gear for 20% more if possible, so shut up.

nobody needs your used equipment but everybody NEEDS Lightroom/Photoshop. if things shift from "want" to "need", then market rules don't apply anymore.

Poweruser: Leather on a tripod? What kind of "retro" is that supposed to imitate?

"stylized take on an idealized past"

On point!

flbrit: This is also bad news for people who like NIK. It is very probable that there will now be zero development of the software and it will wither on the vine of advancing os's.

Google purchased this company and I'm sure the sellers were happy at the time. Now, it devolves and the user base is left to dry out in the wind.

I'm all for capitalism but sometimes monolithic companies like Google, and now Walmart who are deserting many small towns, having put out of business some mom and pop stores, are not serving us best.

interesting, you are all for capitalism but not for its outcome? that is kind of moronic, don't you think?.

Lens Fanatics: David & Goliath combo !
An amazing small A7series camera with a usual huge dslr size lens.

I was really hoping that Sony will use their "engineering genius" to make a small lens to match the small mirrorless camera.
Quality wise most advance/pro cameras are not very far apart. "Size really matters" is the idea that some of us got lure to this system.

well there always is the physics you can't get around. certain lenses will be bulky forever. and todays technology adds a lot to image quality and comfort, so even the primes can't be as small as they used to be.

In reply to:

Joseph Black: Interesting in terms of art, but as a real photo shoot with a bride and groom I think it's just people making something meaningful into something needlessly epic. Everything has to be epic. You can't watch a sporting even without every video or commentator acting like every second you watch is some world changing event. In the case of a wedding, doing something like this for anything other than a few art shoots is taking meaning and turning it into nonsense drama. It looks like this isn't a common occurrence or even the main thrust of any given shoot, but I still don't get why real people would do this.

i agree, the forced "epicness" is getting on my nerves too but that is implied in the economic system. everyone needs to sell stuff so they jazz it up.

falconeyes: Still looks tiny besides a D4s
http://camerasize.com/compare/#639,543

Whatever negativity I read about this SL, it seems to be the first mirrorless which doesn't look and feel like a toy.

it is really weird to see your link and the pics from the articel.
