"As I say, it'll never happen. But it'd be nice, wouldn't it?"

I think it already happened, Alpha 7/9 can be used with small primes, and are not that much bigger than X100 from Fuji.

A smaller system complementary to a DSLR, FF, can be had from Sony or Leica already, depending on budget and needs.

This is story telling and documenting at its best, congratulations. It reminded me of the work of Salgado and others of the same reputation.

Telling a story in photos, not easy... congratulations to the winners.

Arastoo Vaziri: One thing is certain, these demonstrations in Venezuela get some people fired up.

Arastoo - no, I am not stupid, you are. And sick too. Making jokes about human suffering is stupid and ignorant. Perhaps you should burn yourself, and laugh while you are at it. I have had enough of this, will not spend more time arguing with a low life human being as yourself.

Arastoo, I just don't like stupid people, that is all.

If the same thing happens to you, I will remember to make a joke about it too.

DtEW: What sort of "outdoor photographer" uses a single-strap messenger-style bag?

The kind walks <1 mile with his sub-8lb kit, with no need for support gear (read: backpacking equipment, technical equipment, etc.)

"What sort of "outdoor photographer" uses a single-strap messenger-style bag?"

I see lots of sports photogs and event photogs using their gear in the rain, and using this type of bags.

Bobthearch: And yet the main compartment doesn't zip or otherwise seal closed.
They just don't get it...

Well, I am glad it doesn't, just like Billingham bags. Makes it easier to get to the gear.

Spiraea: I have no idea how people can use shoulder bag for outdoor photography. Maybe if you do 3 miles hike behind your house, but doing 10 miles in the Canadian Rockies with this would be painful.

There are more outdoors than Nature.

NOWHITELENS: Maybe mirrorless is the future. Only time will tell.
But one thing I know for sure :
These tiny things Sony calls full frame cameras are not the future unless future humans are midgets with very spindly fingers!

"I guess you mean rubbish?"

Well, at least you got that right...

This must be the first 16-35 f4 zoom for FF cameras that hasan 82mm filter diameter.

cgarrard: It's neat to see camera makers scattering around trying to figure out the next market when they are the ones largely creating the demise of photography in the first place. :).

Trying to make cameras easier and easier to use over the years has only supported a lazy minded approach to using cameras. You reap, what you sew. :)

Gimme more still image cameras that have basic fundamental controls please. Teach buyers how to learn to photograph by producing cameras that give them no other choice but to learn. They will hooked once they feel that sense of achievement and pride for learning a skill. Anyone can set a camera to auto and get a decent snapshot. That's not photography.

cgarrard: that article confuses a lot of things, and fails to understand the basics of how the big two have been working for decades: they need to cater to a large segment of the market, so their innovation is more on the detail, and more on the fine tuning and finessing of an already well oiled and implemented ergonomy, menus, and system.

Ok, so lets go back to use MF, manual mode, and a hand held lightmeter. If someone uses a modern camera in a lazy way, it's not the cameras' fault.

Right... you know the A7 and A9 are about the same size of former Nikon, Pentax, Canon, Pentax, Minolta, Contax, etc, film SLRs? Just do a bit of search before writing rubish...

Good sharing of the experience. Of course your main conclusion is obvious: the Monochrome targets BW photographers. I like your BW image of the downhill street in Kyoto the most, it is a good composition and good light, with ambiance.

As with all types of photography, after all, BW requires good light and an interesting subject, and lots of visualization and learning about what works and what not works.

Very good article, thanks for it.

Nothing new, and lots of pros also do it.

Very good piece on photojournalism, on documenting an ongoing tragic business. Children should have options, other than entering prostitution. I would like to share a link to a foundation created by a Portuguese woman that tries to provide Bangladeshi children with proper life options and conditions, focusing on education:

SaltLakeGuy: I consider this reality like the easter bunny. No freakin way does this have ANY relationship to real world levels of performance evaluated by someone that actually has a clue about photography. Oh well. Like all the rest of the fake news we're used to so no surprise.

This has all to do with real world levels of performance, regardless of what you think. Unless you think Japan is not part of the real world....
