  • Before this thread get locked down as I go down in flames :-D, I know this is a stupid hypothetical poll! I hope it is fun and doesn't get bogged down on whether something is or isn't possible. ...
  • I had to look up the Dunning-Krueger Effect.  It could be but I'm not sure.  I knew him when he was little, probably haven't seen him since he was about 10 or so but he doesn't strike me as a know ...
  • I wish I could say I did well and it's a sign of my success.  Even when times were good with my business, I don't know if I could have spent the money even if I was interested in Leica.  My mother ...
  • I don't think the red dot would have made any difference!
  • Created discussion thread Funny Leica story
    The Minister of our temple retired earlier this year. I shoot events for the newsletter, social media and archives so I wanted to shoot his retirement party. I got there a little late and was ...
  • Looking at this thread Oly and Panny have nothing to worry about, they should be able to market anything and it well sell and get traded!  What good fun! I started with an E-PL5 and then a GX8, ...
  • You can have a look at Fuji if you like but as far size, IQ and colors it's kind of splitting hairs. Fuji are nice color but so are Canon. Panasonic has a reputation of being weak in this ...
  • I shoot hockey in manual because there is a very large variation in white % in the frame (ice and jerseys) so I can't really speak to the metering.  The AF is a little slow compared to the ...
  • From what you are describing, I think you should get the one you feel most comfortable carrying on your person to the all of situations you describe. When you say you may shoot a little bit of ...
  • Replied in D-Lux 4 ...
    I'm never eager to pull shadows with a CCD.  Your choice but if you do want your flowers brighter and more colorful, I would suggest painting them with a flashlight since you are at 5s exposure.  ...
  • Yep, there's always something better but never without tradeoffs.  One of the things I like about Canon is I can buy cheap-and-cheerful and usually rent high-end at reasonable prices.  A nice ...
  • Christopher Frost reviews many Canon lenses. Here's a summary of 10 50's and there is a review to each linked: https://youtu.be/vAWX326Fy0E But as others have said, Sigma looks like a very ...
  • I agree the D2 is still a very nice camera. The Fuji looks good on Flickr but Leica's input color pallete seems special when the light is just right. I wish my Oly was a little wider sometimes, ...
  • One day I'm going to wear out or break my E-10 and I'm going to replace it with one of these.  They are just too similar to have both.  The Oly is just built too well, I'm afraid it will out last me!
  • I've never really gotten to know my M5.  Haven't really played with it or the settings much but right out of the box I found it worked well for my son's ball hockey.  I pretty much only use it for ...
  • Presuming you mean M mount lenses, yes I do.  Was just playing a little the other day trying do decide if I buy a 56mm Sigma (when it comes),  85mm EF Canon or a 75mm Leica, Voigtlander or TTartisans.
  • Nice!  Thanks for posting these!  I'm evaluating this and the 7Artisans 75mm and am hoping to see many samples from both in the next little while,
  • I see. I've never used PIX. You could try submitting an issue here: https://github.com/linuxmint/pix/issues Not a huge NHL guy but I looked up the post and see what you mean.  He does look pretty ...
  • I had to install ex-fat to read SD cards. I do it from the command line: apt install exfat-utils exfat-fuse If you are a mouse guy, I'm sure you can Google for a GUI install. Kev
  • Looking forward to seeing more images from this lens. Not sure I like the background at mid distances. In the pics of the shed and your daughter running from the slide, the upper corners are not to ...
