  • I bought the 24mm EF-S about a month ago and immediately regretted it because of the size with an adapter. I sold it and switched to the 22mm EF-M and the size difference was more impactful than I ...
  • Sorry I replied first went back and read later and saw your clarification. Pardon my reply hair trigger.
  • This is like saying stop reading books because TV is more popular now. It’s one thing for a company to make a strategic decision based on market forces and other for someone to switch to a ...
  • I got the EF-M 22mm a couple of weeks ago. I won’t weigh in on sharpness or quality, but I did go from bringing my camera with me once or twice a week to bringing it every single day.
  • I'm primes-only mainly from being cheap, but it's nice to pretty confidently know what's going to be in frame. I'm sure seasoned photographers can do this with a zoom too, but as a beginner at ...
  • I forgot about Picasa! It was so fast! Everything has been slow since then.
  • Don't get me started on people taking pictures of pictures at museums! That's a different thread.
  • You quoted me saying this image is from the Brooklyn Museum's website. I took a few pictures of people yesterday. I don't take pictures of art in art museums. I was busy taking a different variety ...
  • He seems like an artist who's easy not to like. It's hard for me to say how much of the enjoyment for me was based on seeing such a wide selection of images of New York from a particular POV. The ...
  • It's funny that you called out the last line, because I did employ a questionable "etc" earlier in the post ;)
  • I’m an iMessage user, and an Apple user, and a shallow depth of field user. I even like the blue bubble! I’m also suspicious of bandwagons. Bokeh has a bandwagon going, and the fact that this ...
  • My argument is that shallow depth of field is overvalued, at the moment, in part because it's a marker of more expensive cameras and lenses. This isn't meant to judge the expensive equipment at all. ...
  • I don't think this follows at all from the text you quoted – I'm not arguing (at all) against expensive lenses. I was going to explain this, but the paragraph you quoted already says what I would say.
  • I agree on all counts. I often shoot wide open because I'm usually indoors. I also employ shallow depth of field regularly! My target here is more bokeh mania than using shallow depth of field per ...
  • They're all nice photos, and my point is definitely not to say never blur the background. Your examples are showing a nice spectrum of out of focus backgrounds. I don't think I'm exaggerating to ...
  • This seems really thoughtful and sensible. Engaging with depth of field as another tool in the toolkit makes sense. Notably, neither of the backgrounds in the two images you showed are blurred out ...
  • This distinction was complete news to me, thank you!
  • The photo I posted was taken by the Brooklyn Museum, not me. My camera was for practicing photography to become a better photographer, and camera phones are still much worse at that. You must have ...
  • I’ve found this other phenomenon recently where if a person lays out disclosures about the limits of their knowledge, some responders will engage with those disclosures as proof of the ...
  • And who defines "greatest result"?
