About time. I have neglected my smug mug page, too. Hard to use. Wasted money on it but couldn't figure out a way to save my work and move on.

One day a snob said to me that I thought I was a photographer because I carried a Leica. He said he wouldn't spend the money on the tool and then got back into his BMW and drove off. I never got to tell him that his BMW didn't make him a better driver.

I love my Q

In reply to:

Peter Bendheim: Some questions:
1. Why do so many people judge this camera (and most other cameras) negatively before it's even out in the stores and they have had a chance to use it? And when DPR obviously seem impressed having actually physically held it and briefly tried it (which I hardly think many people here have.
2. Why are the Sony people here en masse to knock everything, as they are when just about any other non-Sony product gets launched? Don't they have photographs to go take, or what?
3. What possible purpose could it serve for people to mark the "I had it" box before a camera comes out? Not just now, but always. DPR should take that whole thing out, it's meaningless.

Ok rant over. I like the look of the Canon. I think it will be my next travel camera.

Could be mine, too. But tough to get hands on it. Just feeling it in a store when it comes out may not do it.

DuckShots: So, should I give up a 5D Mark III for this? I am old and I travel.

I travel to cities and museums. Walk 3/4 miles a day. Shoot Street. 24mm seems wide enough for landscapes from the boat or lookouts. Just lose the ability to change lenses, not that I carry them. Shot a Leica Q during a trip to Cuba, but found the 27mm confining. Thanks for the thought.

You ask me to comment! I am overwhelmed. Went to a HCB show in NYC at Rubin. Wish I had seen this. Will look at part two and buy some of the books. Everyday I try to learn something new about photography and the art of seeing. This qualified and then some.

I'd buy it in a second if I could afford it.

Not sure what you mean, but I await the next competition that features "expresionate" women.

I want to tell all of you who entered and posted that I thought all the images were terrific. I wish we were all in the same room to talk about who we shot, where and why.

Thank you. It was an honor to see your work.

I have been photographed by Greg Heisler and would gladly do it again. But my first choice today would be Platon.

Am I limited in answering the question to photographers other than myself?

On article Canon EOS 5D IV: What you need to know (181 comments in total)

What does can't quite match resolving power mean in real terms? Not understanding this anti-alias filter, either. I own two 5D Mark III. Have had focusing issues with both. This is a primary concern of mine. Not sure wi-fi is state of the art either.
