  • I would guess the lens is just not a razor in the corners at f/4. I don't see how this is the fault of the adapter per se... older wides just lag behind newer ones. Also I think using legacy lenses ...
  • Huh! I had looked up the Sony RX10 series for this purpose, which is supposedly quite similar, but disliked the output (colors, and felt 'crunchy' or fake sharp to me). This camera actually looks ...
  • At least for me, I like the sharpness. It reminds me of medium format. I sometimes (though not often) even leave it default. But yeah, I get some may want to tone it down. And I see how a Q might ...
  • I'm an oddball here on settings but... In SPP I do the following: - Sharpening @ -2 usually - Fill light to balance the scene, but never more than -2 or +3 (I usually TRY to use 0 or 0.1) - white ...
  • For many of us it is preference in regards to flash. I just very much prefer to work with natural light, both because I like the look more (though I know people who are great with flash can mimic ...
  • Yes! I don't get why we aren't all really happy about this?!

    You can now generate garbage with NUMBERS on it! Our landfills will be more numeric than ever!

  • It is a pretty low number, though people are terrified of sharks too, which only average 6 deaths a year. In a similar time span (~7 years) sharks will, on average, kill 42 people.

    Selfies may be...

  • I agree completely. It's an amazing tool for what I use it for, landscapes. I'd love if it did more, but for the $400 I spent, it doing an incredible job of landscapes is enough. Every review I ...
  • So like, a camera and 4 lenses? :D

    Edit - damn, I was beaten to it. By days probably, but still.

  • Dpthoughts you are 100% right. Cell phones are the best. Technology NEVER borrows from each other, and large sensors, which have a massive physics advantage, will NEVER keep up.

    Heck I don't know...

  • If you do not get the difference in output between the output of APSC vs a teeny cell phone sensor, then why are you on a photography website, and not a website about phones?

    This is not meant as...

  • XF10 lens is... fairly bad, and IBIS is huge. Also the GR is noticably smaller. But I guess if you like larger, more difficult to shoot handheld cameras with worse output.

    Also I dislike the...

  • I'm not sure I understand the comparison. GM5 + 15/1.7 = 2.84" thick and 11.5oz GM5 + 20/1.7 = 2.42" thick, 10.5oz GR III = 1.3" thick, 9.1oz The point of the GR series is, at least in large part, ...
  • I like it too :D But I feel like a jerk saying so, because I'm not a street photography person. I just love it as a pocket travel camera with a prime (I dislike zooms, just a preference). The ...
  • I could be totally off-base here, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, I'm assuming the logic is this. Pulling up shadows (the traditional measure of dynamic range) means increasing shadow ...
  • Logically... Either lower noise (if the pixel pitch is lower), or more detail (if the pixel pitch is the same) at the same noise levels. Better depth of field play - true f/1.2, f/1.4, etc, which ...
  • Presumably, having IS on the sensor will also mean it has some sort of anti-dust shake system like most ILC cameras do.

    I'd still love weather sealing just 'cause :D But hopefully dust will be a...

  • Fair enough. You're right, we likely do see the differences we want to see. I will say the differences in print were far less than on screen. If I mostly printed, I'd care less about having my ...
  • Honestly, I appreciate all these links - thank you. I'm actually working on a paper about the energy use of internet, and it is a little terrifying so far. But seeing good things like this is a ...
  • Thanks, nice of you to say! I ended up moving to Fuji for a while and tried a number of new lenses, though none I really liked more than the Vivitar. Some as much, though. The one immediately ...
