  • Considering the dramatic decline in camera sales and new camera announcements, it might make more sense to hold Photokina every three or four years, rather than opening it up for video game...

  • steve.... I think win39 was commenting about the honesty of first world airline baggage screeners and handlers, and not about third world trains or buses.

    And I'd say you are right. Nepal is...

  • Sony just doesn't have very many of them.... with nothing under 28mm and nothing over 100mm.
  • The term is normally used in a derogatory sense, and it is applied to people who view sample photos at extremely high magnification so they can decide on which camera or lens is "better." The ...
  • Pentax proves it, by weather sealing their kit lenses, and selling them for exactly the same price as their non weather sealed kit lenses. All that is really involved is installing some very cheap ...
  • I specifically said that driving under the influence of anything should be a serious crime, and prosecuted as such. Given your reply, can I assume you are for criminalizing alcohol use by adults ...
  • Replied in Absolutely
    My own personal belief is that all drugs should be legal for all adults. It is not a core function of government to protect us from our own bad decisions. This also means we would stop enabling ...
  • No real Libertarian would be so supportive of the nanny state. And none would be so enthralled with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. If you think you are a Libertarian, then it is only in your ...
  • I always boils down to the same thing. 100% of the time when a liberal either cannot or will not debate on issues, they launch an ad hominem attack. It is the lazy man's way out. Just call people ...
  • And the people on the far left want to restrict freedom of speech, your healthcare options, your right to eat, drink and smoke certain things, your right to wear fur,  and would send you to prison ...
  • Replied in Simply untrue.
    You are essentially saying "I knew Hillary was a crook, but I just assume Trump will be a bigger crook. So I prefer Hillary." You compare the actual things Hillary did to the things "Trump will ...
  • The full frame MILC sector is ripe for more competition. This is an upmarket niche that can be very profitable.. One that has zero competition from smartphones or anything else. Sony FE is sitting ...
  • I upgraded from the 12-50mm EZ lens that came with my EM5 to a 12-40mm f/2.8 lens that I am now using with my EM1. If you need the reach, then the Panasonic 12-60mm lens might be a better choice ...
  • Replied in I agree, but....
    The 9-18mm lens is overdue for a refresh. I said so in this post three months ago. And it would be great to have a weather sealed version as part of the revision. But would it be a cheap lens? ...
  • Replied in Your options
    There are six ways you can sell used gear that I can think of: (1) Sell it locally or to a friend - Like anything else you can undersell a dealer because you don't need to make a profit. So you could ...
  • And that can never happen as long as the Democrats continue their forced march to the far left fringe. Today the Democrats aren't anything like they were 40 years ago. They would not tolerate JFK, ...
  • To be perfectly clear about this Hillary Clinton was the worst possible choice for President in my lifetime. And I am 68 years old. I would have voted for anyone who opposed her. Hillary Clinton is ...
  • Those were all wonderful cameras. And they felt so solid and well built.

  • Those were actually APSC or full frame lenses that were modified by adding a 4/3 lens mount. There were fourteen of them. The Dpreview lens database says there are only six, but Andrej Wrotniak and the
