CaPi: Moiree. Yup, no filter.

Moiree here IMO doesn't come from the camera but from the scaling algorithm of the browser.

Buzz Lightyear: Nice photo - but I don't understand how you could have used a Leica D Vario-Elmarit lens on a compact camera that has a fixed lens.

Look at the lens:

Panasonic mFT-lenses are also labeled "Leica" (no idea if it's just their design or Leica also produces them).

RuthC: HE, on the left is wooing HER, on the right. If He is not ever so careful, then SHE will eat him for lunch before he can 'have his way with her'. :-)
RuthC :-)

In many cases (depends on the species) SHE will eat him after mating anyhow ;) So he will die and possibly have some fun or just run away... No idea what's the better option, as I'm not a spider. :D

MaxBacon: This should have done better, I liked it anyway.

Thx for your comment. Well, judging from the low number of voters those voting completely off gain way too much power. This was my very first entry and TBH I saw it coming ;)

On photo Street Portrait in the Creative Portraits challenge (1 comment in total)

From the POV of a photographer this one IMHO was the most creative one, most of the other photos looked way too standard to me... I think what kept people voting for it was the slight lack of crisp sharpness - which I think actually makes this one even more interesting...

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1397 comments in total)
In reply to:

kai0815: I don't get why so many are complaining about the price and even worse: dpreview seems to join in by identifying "value" as the greatest weakness of the E-M1 II in their table in the conclusions. I know we shouldn't stress these ratings too much, but compared to the D500 the following is quite surprising:
Can somebody explain, why the "value" of the obviously comparable D500 (listed at dpreview for $2000) is around 90% and E-M1 II gets only 50% "value" for the same price?

You probably already know - it's all about 'equivalence' ;)

bluevellet: Cool. Much better than the Iceland gallery. But while a good showcase of Raw IQ with the camera and lenses, I would have liked examples where the speed and class-leading IBIS was put to good use. Maybe in the next gallery?

QuarterToDoom I think you get me wrong ;) I am already quite impressed with that 1 second in the new DPReview gallery. 5 seconds, even when sitting, is way beyond I was thinking about when reading "better IBIS". Probably it's just me, but I think this now is sort of a hype and everyone wants his "seconds of fame" and top others. As long as they don't explicitly state "free-standing" I really think they did their >10 sec sitting or leaning.

Robin Wong wrote he was sitting/leaning:
https://robinwong.blogspot.de/2016/11/olympus-om-d-e-m1-mark-ii-review.html

"Anything longer than 2 seconds, my legs started to wobble! Hence for the 5 seconds shots shown in this blog, I was either sitting down on the pavement (twin towers) or braced/leaned myself on a wall or something. The hand-holding part was still 100% valid."

mirrorlessons didn't mention if it was free-standing, and the 15sec shot linked by 43rumors.com on Nov. 3. shows an arrangement on a table, which might very well have been shot while sitting. So don't trust all those great numbers until you got your own seconds of fame ;)

But those shots >5 seconds were taken while sitting or leanings against a wall. That example image was taken above the head.

Image 17:
1 second "Shot was hand-held above the head." Is that enough?
