  • Replied in Objectivity.
    Thanks, likewise.  It's always a pleasure.  It's no more interesting to always agree on everything than it is to insult one another.
  • Really excellent texture and tones in the reds.   Better than my 6D. Just a little pump action 12 gage   Come on down to Texas.   I’ll show you some serious fire power. Is that somehow worse than a ...
  • I only have one L prime, so I guess it's my favorite. The TSE 17mm F4 does exactly what I bought it for, corrects distortion of vertical lines or occasionally horizontal lines in a nice wide lens. ...
  • Replied in IS
    Interesting.   How much of a problem is this going to be? Is this just a standard mirror less compromise?
  • Replied in Objectivity.
    The urgency to do something in two or three seconds is not there with the phone like it is with the camera. I do.   I like to take a trip into the woods and shoot some wildlife once it a while.   I ...
  • I liked the EVFs years ago the first time I tried it.  I didn't think it was a game changer, but I saw some advantages to it, particularly the ability to point the camera at the sun without ...
  • Replied in Objectivity.
    Nah.   You can always check the caller ID and call back.   You don't have to be in a hurry with a phone like you do with a camera.  The right moment never comes again.   Another might, but you ...
  • Replied in Fv - Mode
    I'm wondering if it will do that if you half press the shutter button then change it.   Il'll check that out later.
  • Replied in Objectivity.
    Yeah, but you have plenty of time to take a glove off and answer the phone or text.  With a camera, you often have to be ready for hours at a game, out in the wild looking for birds, or at an ...
  • Replied in Fv - Mode
    My problem with it is that you have to go from auto on shutter speed all the way through the speeds from 30 seconds to a reasonable speed.   ISO is a similar problem if using high ISO.   Then you ...
  • I don't wear gloves that often, but when I do, I take them off, then dial or text, then put them back on.   That's perfectly practical with a phone.  A camera is a different story.  I use the ...
  • Since the post you responded to, I went into the camera store to get an eye cup and a lens cap that I lost again, and walked out with an R. I like to avoid flash too. It's a real buzz kill at a ...
  • I was trying that out today.  It seems cumbersome to use.   It takes too long to scroll through the shutter speeds, and sometimes the ISO.  It needs some preset buttons of its own.
  • Thanks guys.   I am humbled by your compliments.
  • Come on.  How much can a dial cost?  Even if one is cheaper than the other, it's not going to be a relevant amount. And don't tell me that every little bit counts.  I personally know that some bits ...
  • I am a luddite.  I was perfectly happy with the whole DSLR thing.  I saw some potential benefits to mirror less, but not enough to actually care.  Heck, I was still using a single center focus ...
  • Since my last post, I have either had lots of work or bad weather.  I have only made it out to pursue my new macro interest once.  It is certainly a target rich environment.   The light was ...
  • I got it.   I haven't really tested it, though.   It was well specced in every other area, and the vignetting is not such a big deal for that type of lens. my concern was that future wide angle ...
  • On my R, anyway, that depends on how low the contrast AND light are.   The line between my wall and ceiling in a dark corner at night requires a lot of tilt, just short of 45 degrees.  I guess I ...
  • I don't see why not, and think it's a good idea.  However, focus would not be uniform throughout the frame.  You would have to know where to focus how, like you do with a DSLR. That wouldn't bother ...
