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

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.

edandgini: Couldn't you choose a more unflattering category?

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?

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.

In reply to:

avicenanw: Shame to have this turned into a political forum. This piece can be found elsewhere if anyone cares to read about it. DPR is not the place for it. What have this got to do with reviewing cameras and photography?

All art is political and photo j is as much of the scene as anything you shoot.
