LWW: Hate 'shoot' as a photographic term. Descriptive of destroy, as against create.

‘Shooting’? Never. I go out looking. The word ‘shooting’ reminds me of going out with machine gun and a big bag of bullets trying to hit a target that you know is there, and hoping for the best. When I go out there is no preconceived plan.
I very rarely carry a camera in my hands and don't use neck straps. My cameras are always in a back pack and come out when it’s worth my effort to use one. The adventure and the unexpected is really what drives me as a sensitive soul.

gueleh: Dan Bracaglia obviously hasn't read your articles about equivalent f/-numbers...(?).
As always - the correct numbers are visible on the camera lens: F/1.4-2.8 / 8.8-26.4

This is the weirdest thread I've ever tried to read about taking photos!

PhotoKhan: Going through these wonderful, wonderful photos makes it easier to understand why MFT users have the constant self-doubting need to roam through FF and APS-C forums making inane claims.

Very nice, regardless of sensor size - precisely! or Yes, precisly - or not so much. One key stroke and you've made a fool of yourself @PhotoKhan.

Mister J: I come here for photography, not for a rehash of Apple-PC wars.

Message to supporters of either side - buy what you like, but please leave the carping for another day.

This site is never about photography, albeit help for some aspects of the craft. It's about gadgets and things.

fmian: Still.. doesn't seem to capture as much texture detail as an APS-c Sigma Quattro.
Next!

Back in the nineties I went MF with Mamaya 645's and my photography went backwards because it was so heavy and cumbersome. 5 years ago I went M43 and my photography went ahead with the lightness and versatility of the gear. No customer has ever questioned the IQ when they are preoccupied with image content and impact. Now with the Quattro's I just have the best of everything.

I saw nothing new photographically, just stuff.

villagranvicent: what's the point of his collection? Does he have some historical pieces of photographic equipment or simply buys whatever crap he finds at the local flea market?

villagranvicent, Typically no photography in its gallery, just a serial pest. Wannabe noticed sort of maggot.

For what I do, best I can do for my customers, is reasonable price v volume. Surely this is just ridiculous that a silly ordinary lens format is priced like that? Best sell more at a reduced margin than a few at an esoteric level.

Going medium format in 1990 was the worst thing I did for my photography. To heavy, to tired or lazy. Mamiya 645 kit. M43 is the best thing for my photography, light and convenient. No-one questions IQ over image impact for sales.

Dear wild light, best you show us some of your "20 plus years" of expertise, seems that you are a bit shy in 'yer gallery.

Maybe some do just a great service to the craft, without the need for over the top tech, money, and esoteric adulation. Maybe there are a whole lot of suckers out there that have distorted views of what it takes? There might even be folk that have enough talent to not require billions of pixels and fancy gear to create more than worthy images. I might just drag my mirrorless SWC903 out of hibernation in spite.

PKDanny: They should make AF lenses. Or. They are lazy!!

Wow! How does a 14, maybe even a 13 year old go out and rent a M43 set?

I would like to add that the Sigma Quattro's are not for lazy, consumer driven camera nerds, purporting to be photographers. Warts and all, they are tools for the discerning result driven photographer. No video is an asset I might add.

LWW: What a load of rubbish about lack of lenses, if you would all get off your sorry rear ends and create some 'image impact' and distract with that lofty ideal, you'll do just fine with what is already available.

I think my original comment got lost in more talk about lenses and their 'qualities'.
I'll still pursue image impact over quality any day, and if the viewer looks beyond the subjective, well one of us has missed the point.

loitokitok: What some of you guys with your oh so sarcastically crafted comments conveniently seem to forget is that nobody, not even Leica, is forcing you to buy this product. Take it or leave it and move on.

But I certainly applaud them for giving you a subject on which to practice your wit.

Surprised that you didn't respond with a hand written letter! Enough of these screens I would have thought.
