Gregm61: If they gave me 5 of those white lenses and sent me for free, I still wouldn't want to go to Rio to take pictures of anything.

Cute....Rio hardly qualifies as "the real world", but for that PART of the world, I'll take my couch every day.

If Rio/Central America of today was the real world experience....I think most would pass.

D200_4me: I like Flickr, but honestly the Yahoo main page (search, news, etc) is horrible and seems geared to low information folks. Lots of sensationalized ads pointing you to other questionable web sites.

I like it too, except for the fool photographers who post images of Japanese models in every photo group possible, legitimate or not for the subject matter. It seems to be quite the wild west with no oversite,

Gregm61: The "travel" winner looks like the typical photoshop-baked creations I see a lot. Between sun rays that look a bit "too" perfect and images being HDR'd to death, I'm not sure which look worse, but none of them look good to me anymore and fall more into the digital art category than photographs.

I think it's more an indication of what today's Photoshop/edit abilities for any and everyone have evolved to.

cdembrey: iPhotographers are more interested in making photos—while Very Serious Photographers are more interested in test charts and DXO scores.

When was the last time you saw a shot of a test chart or a brick wall on a Social Media site??

Measurebaters and geeks are more interested in brick walls and DXO scores. Lord, how ever did we survive just enjoying photography before digital equipment and the internet?

The image should have been of fat-bottomed girls on bicycles...

Excellent shot!

On article Leica Q In-depth Review (1131 comments in total)

All of these cameras being discussed and compared will be yesterday's news sooner than the users care and I'll be glad I have my current lenses to use on new technology bodies.

Bought my last fixed-lens digital camera at any price level, long ago.

I have noticed my Wacom graphics pen works much smoother in ACR and Photoshop since updating.

Hard to see what tool you are using? Hmmm, OK. It seems pretty obvious to me as I make a selection, what tool it is I am selecting.

The Squire: How much longer can Canon keep 'protecting' their DSLR revenues by under-investing in ILCs? There wont be much revenue to protect soon...

Canon could easily be the next Kodak.

Kodak didn't die overnight. It took years of ignoring the trends. Canon is on their way. Whether they continue following the path with their heads buried in the sand, is the question.

bed bug: I must ask, with so many companies now having wireless flash, is there a place for PWs anymore? I sold off my PWs when Canon brought out their wireless system, which works fabulously well. Of cousre, Canon's gear is quite $$$$.

Stephen

The Olympus TTL wireless flash system is an optical, line-of-site system. This would be a vast improvement.

About *this* much more material, LOL...

Rather have a new M body.

ZeneticX: disregarding the specs..... that's a lot of moolah for a P&S

I may not "really" be a point & shoot, but it really is limited with just the one focal length. Even if cropping with a 42MP sensor is an option, if I'm paying that much money, I'd want every shot utilizing the full sensor. I rarely ever use the 35mm equivalent prime from my system because it too freakin' limiting.
