On article The Leica Summaron 28mm F5.6 is old-fashioned fun (93 comments in total)

No matter how fun or nice a lens might be, you just can't justify the price (in this case).

D200_4me: I hope these people/scientists don't get paid to do this. What's the point? I think there is none.

It's the whole internet 'viral' thing that turns me off. Too many lemmings in this world today. I don't dismiss valid research in learning how the brain works, but I just get turned off by fads and so on. I suppose if they can extract something worthwhile from this, so be it...but being a fairly practical person, it just doesn't have much meaning to me. Different strokes for different folks as they say. And let's hope that I don't get labeled as a simpleton that just can't understand the value of certain things that are just too far above my head. We're all allowed to have a different opinion...I think ;-)

Great! That's the last little thing that annoyed me about my G85. Way too much IS hum like the original EM5 had before Oly tweaked it. Downloading....

I like their sensors. Cameras, not so much.

D200_4me: I've noticed some comments were deleted. Not offensive, rude or otherwise controversial comments..just a differing opinion. I guess that was enough. Hmmm. Anyway, it looks like some people are on the verge of a nervous breakdown. ;-)

Well, I just think that if you're going to allow comments to be posted and the content being commented on (the story) is well known to cause people from each side of an issue to post their own views, you have to be prepared for that and accept it. Otherwise, please disable comments altogether. No more commenting on posted stories or whatever you want to call them. That's the only fair way to do it. It's not right to single out an opposing view and remove it because you don't agree with it. You either allow free speech (respectable free speech) in the comment section, or you don't. I'd just assume commenting be disabled completely. Even on non-controversial topics about gear, too many people leave smarta** comments.

On article Apple selling more Plus models than ever (63 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: It's a little pricey to upgrade if you're paying for yourself. I am fortunate because my employer pays for mine. I still don't understand the lack of a lower capacity memory option than 128 GB. They go from 32 GB directly up to 128 GB. I don't really need anything more than 64 GB so if I'm paying quite a bit more for that extra memory, it's just a waste. I still prefer an expansion slot for a microSD card.

Understood. No problem. The iPhone is the only apple product I use. I have zero interest in a Mac. I love my super fast, reliable and reasonably priced windows 10 PC.

If I had to buy my own phone, I'm sure I'd go with a high end Android phone. I can get one at work too, but the iPhone works best for me for what I need it for.

On article Adobe Creative Suite 6 has been officially retired (351 comments in total)

Sorry if this is obvious from reading the story but I just wanted to make sure. I currently have the latest standalone version of lightroom 6 but does this announcement mean I will not be able to buy a standalone version of Lightroom 7 whenever that comes out?

On article Applying color theory to landscape photography (87 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: That first image/painting. Is that the valley the goobers in San Fran dammed up to create a reservoir? (Hetch Hetchy). If so, that's a shame. It's beautiful and would have been nice to see just like Yosemite valley.

Except for Half Dome and some of the other scenic bits of Yosemite Valley, the Hetch Hetchy valley before it was filled up might have actually been more pretty than Yosemite Valley. I was out there a few years ago. The water was near the top and it was super windy on the dam.

D200_4me: Just finished watching Philip Bloom talk about how disappointed he was with the 1.74x crop in 4K and that's unusable for him. I see his point. There's always 1080.

P.S.
nice video/story :-)

They should feel fortunate they didn't fall theough and be dissolved like that other guy in Yellowstone. Anyway, I'm sure they feel they were unfairly punished. It's very simple, obey the simple and logical rules and you won't be in trouble. A little common sense sense would help also.

On article Got focal range? Canon 24-105mm F4L II sample gallery (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: It could use an extra 15mm (like Nikon's version). I pretty much use the 24-120 f/4 all the time. It's a very useful range. Not sure why Canon can't get an extra 15mm in there....or better yet, the ultimate zoom lens that would be just about the only lens I'd ever need would be a 24-200 f/4. Wish they made one (for FF).

I do use other lenses, but I use the 24-120 most. I love the 85mm f/1.8 for example. Also have the very inexpensive but great Tamron 28-75 f/2.8.
24-120 gallery: http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Nikon-24-120mm-f4-Lens/

85mm gallery (not as many images since it's not as usual for me during travel so I normally leave it at home when traveling): http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Nikon-85mm-f18G-Lens/
