So many choices, it's almost enough to drive me crazy. But wait, I'm already crazy.

RoccoGalatioto: What is the point of this, am I missing something. Just because an mage takes a long time to make is is worth making or is just an exercise in futility? This guy needs a life.

Dear Ninja, I at least have the courage to use my own name and photo. You can see into my eyes from my comment...interesting. It would be very healthy if you were to lighten up. I was making a comment, just an opinion. If you disagree then state your different point of view.

RoccoGalatioto: Iconic red dot?
The red dot is actually a recent addition and it became i in use after Minox bought Leitz. Am I old or the people ad DP review are a bunch of children?

But I got here, will you?
I got my first M-4 in followed by an M2R in 1972. I ended up with another M-2 and an M4-2. All without the silly red dot. With digital, Leica is too costly for me because it really is a limited camera. Even for street photography it has much competition at lower prices. In a world of selfies and cell phone photography, Leica finds itself in a smaller and smaller niche. Practically relegated to those who value a camera more that photography.

RoccoGalatioto: For forty years? I have been shooting color for much longer than that using slide film. Kodachrome came out a very long time ago. Color neg has been around for a shorter period of time. Perhaps the staff at DPR is made up of youngsters.

I began to shoot seriously in 1968, 46 yeras ago and at that time we had Kodacolor, Ektacokor, in neg. from Kodak along with a plethora of slide films. Anscochromes in 10, 200 1nd 500 ASA, We had color slides by Ferrania and 3M. There was Agfachrome and we had from Kodak Kodachrome II and X, Ektachrome 64, 100 and type B 160 ASA. Then there were a slew of Large format sheet films. Ib 120 we had Ektachromes and Agfachromes. I realize that your youth makes 40 yeras seem an eternity. For me is was not so long ago.

Painting and photography are totally different arts. If you must paint, learn how to put paint on a canvass. Photography is a totally different medium. It may look easy but getting superb images is very hard. Photographers should not waste time imitating panting they should use their imagination at capturing the instant and the very graphical images that the medium allows to capture. Although at first photography appears very naturalistic, it can be so, it has the potential to be the most surrealistic. My opinion. If you like an image who cares what or how it's made from. Life is too short. ENJOY

For a company that appeared to be on the ropes, they are coming out with nice stuff and are showing signs of life in a difficult marker niche.

It's only a matter of time. It's a great camera [the E-5] but I do nor think that it ever was or will ever be a very hot item. Unfortunately the company has has many problems recently. Too bad really, too bad.

Nikon007: My advice has always been "stay away from wide Gamut unless you know what your doing". For me it's not worth the hassle to see colors no one else can. You don't see it in print, your clients don't see it, on the web they can't be seen. So what good is it? It's great for a dedicated graphics station but for general use it causes many folks a lot of head aches. So if WG is your cup of tea go for it. If your not sure do your research first, there are lot of threads on this subject going back for years and nothing has really changed.

I agree. Most clients look at the photos on cheap office type monitors.

garyknrd: I have a cheap Dell laptop. And am amazed at the processing in Raw i get. I am going to buy the 27" just because of the excellent laptop. I am seriously getting into high quality bird photography. Do you guys think this is a good move? Can I expect much better processing with PS-5?

are you sure that the video card in your laptop can handle the new monitor?
