On article All about that lens: Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III review (421 comments in total)

Concerning the photo of the baseball field--

The right-hand edge isn't very sharp, whereas the left-hand edge is sharp. Could this be a decentering problem?

Prudent observation. Let it sink in.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Made by slave labor. Xixiang Town, ShenZhen, Guangdong, China.

Before the Civil War in this country, many people in the North would not purchase the products of slave labor. Maybe it's not as simple as that.

Sounds like communist propaganda to me.

You can surely understand how it could vex a person's conscience to buy products of slave labor -- or we could at least call it terribly exploited labor. Everybody knows how sweatshops are roundly denounced in this country. Why then should we draw the line for Red China? Does conscience count for nothing? I won't get into the story of the Chinese worker who came home from work to learn that the authorities had seized his wife and forcibly aborted his baby. It's hardly better in this country -- 60 million Americans aborted since 1973. You don't have to be a religion maniac to see something wrong about that. And shall we just forget about the Tien An Men Square Massacre? It would take a revolution to change a regime possessed of such malice as that. The wolf changes his skin, not his mind.

I suggest we get back to our topic -- lenses.

Falun Gong members appear every now and then in New York's Grand Central Station witnessing to government harassment. I saw them there last Wednesday.

And then there's the Tien An Men Square Massacre. The communists raked he square from midnight to 5 A.M., leaving 4,000 dead.

RolliPoli: With lenses there are three principal characteristics:
Sharp
Fast
Cheap
You can only have two of those three.
Which two would you prefer?

I know.

I'm eyeing that Samyang 135mm F2.0 ED UMC.

The Rokinon (Samyang ) 24mm f/1.4 is intriguing also.

@0MitchAG
>>I suppose Pat would just prefer if they were unemployed.

Not at all. I was thinking about employment when I said, "Maybe it's not as simple as that." It's a moral dilemma, don't you think?

But let's get back to out lenses and cameras....
