Bigsensorisbest: I understand dpr has to create content, but I'm too depressed about so many people dying around me to want to take photos. I want to read about photography but I'm in no mood whatsoever to take pictures at the moment.

no problem, don't take any. others may feel differently.

Lord Lucan: When a Leica man/woman is spotted with a Leica, all those non-Leica users stare at the camera by Leica. They wish they had it

@Aegon Targaryen: you're giving @Squid and the author of the article he posted a pass by suggesting that they were "poking fun". Were that what they were doing, I'd simply poke fun back. But they're not, they're making ad hominem attacks by branding ALL Leica users as snobbish. Again as I've said so many times, I don't take exception if someone for example says "Leica equipment is overpriced trash that is bested by equipment half its price". Fair enough, that's their opinion. But to say all Leica users are snobbish? Really? Show me the evidence. But of course there isn't any. This is all @Squid ASSUMPTION based on who knows what (including his own personal issues, but certainly NOT on facts), that to own Leica is to be snobbish.

@Squid: yup you're still clueless, failing to understand that it's not your place to judge why people are willing to spend what they spend on what equipment. You're making an assumption as to someone's character, rather disparaging (look up the definition) when you know zero about that person. Again, if you want to judge the value of the equipment as compared to other equipment, sure go for it although others may disagree. But to disparage and make ad hominem attacks on someone based on your suspect feelings (again, low self esteem) who you know nothing about speaks volumes about you. Very sad.

oh and to put one of your silly arguments to rest: "The incessant claims that anything Leica makes is a cut above the rest do not hold much water when looking objectively at the facts" . . . I didn't see any Leica owner (the entire class of whom you maliciously slandered by accusing them of snobbery) in this thread made such a claim.

@Squid: seems you have it backwards. the first and worse insult was yours, proclaiming that Leica owners are by definition snobs simply for owning Leica gear. This isn't a question of defending Leica gear and if you think it's overrated and badly priced, fine, I respect although don't agree with your opinion. But, you don't know me, you don't know why and for what reasons I have Leica equipment, and the fact I choose to use a Q2 is frankly none of your business. In other words, you you have no way of knowing whether in fact I or all other Leica owners are snobs. Labeling people that seems either jealously or classic inferiority complex on your part. I expect you'll come back with some retort because you're one of those people who are incapable of looking inward critically and owning fault and apologizing for it. But if it makes you feel better about yourself calling people snobs, just go right ahead. I was serious before - therapy might help open up your eyes.

@Squid: brilliant. on the basis of "trying" the M - Typ 240 you've concluded that users of the Q/Q2 are snobs. Classic inferiority complex. Therapy might help.

mr squid: just responding to your concurrence with the article accusing Leica owners of snobbery. Perhaps you should try one instead of assuming they're just bling

typical have-not jealousy. Perhaps USN Squid should call 1-800-WAAA WAAA

irelandinpictures: While I can understand Nigel's reasoning I don't share his opinions. I have been using the GFX 50R for almost 2 months now and it is by far the best digital camera I have ever used. It's not only its built quality and the look of the images, the GFX 50R is just a joy to use. To me at least the whole camera, the button layout and menus just make sense. It's expensive compared to smaller formats, compared to other medium format cameras it's a bargain. I am not sure if links are allowed but here is one with my take on the GFX 50R: https://irelandinpictures.wordpress.com/2018/12/06/new-beginnings-the-fuji-gfx50r-week-1/

nice pics. And I also love the Time shutter setting, especially that as you dial in the amount of time (even with 13 stops of ND filters screwed onto the lens), the viewfinder in real time shows you what your image will look like at that amount of time.

not surprised at all. I'm simply responding to all the glowing comments about how sharp its images are when in fact they're nothing of the sort.

On challenge Beatles vs. Rolling Stones (9 comments in total)

the winning photo is clearly processed, and even looks HDR. I don't enter challenges that prohibit PP because I think all images can benefit from some degree of PP. But it's odd that ForestGump imposed but didn't enforce that rule.
