On article Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 (291 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They could make a body or hand grip (like Panasonic did for gh4, not necessarily bulky as the video grip) , which would suit 5100,5200,5300. And even maybe suitable for 3100,3200,3300 series, and built it many in numbers, would drop the costs and selling better etc etc.

Instead they made a whole new camera (or did they?) which has GPS (that others can track you!) and Wi-Fi (which would not work for my window phone anyway!).

End of the day; there is D810! Why would I spend a single cent for anything else from Nikon! (forgot to mentioned D4s, D750 are also cool stuff.. But man! That ovf and shutter voice... And off camera jpegs ! Amazing!)

Actually anyone can track anyone else; as far as gsm connectivity allows. For further tracking it required more advanced stuff.

But at the same time; " dude, why do you worry to be tracked? Are you in to bad things ?" Kinda question bugle minds...

Amazing, details are amazing, magnification is amazing; just wondering, how can you resist the coldness and work flawless in such conditions.

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: I would understand all the comprimises, if it woupd be an M mouth camera. No need to be full rame, but the pyscal size of the lens should be M size! It feels so fake to me (even the design looks better than ordinary)

That is also true :) as long as M has no autofocus mechanism, what is the difference between using it with/without adapter!

On article Have your say: Best Lens of 2014 (119 comments in total)

My free decision is; Leica 15mm F 1.7

Its also belong to this year. Lightning fast focusing, closest focus range is almost "macro" feeling. Very usefull angle (wide for landscape, sharp for portrait). Just "The Real Best" to me.

In reply to:

papa natas: You mean to tell me that you took this BEAUTIFUL image with a 250$-puny 1/1.7" sensor-amateur-dedicated-3 years old-camera?
Why, didn't you use the Olympus-OM-DE-M5?
Nor the Sony a7 II, nor any of its price winner sisters?
What about the Canon-EOS-7D-Mark II?
Aren't you aware that it takes at least a 5000$ photo gear in your bag to be creative?
What a sacrilege!!
Are you a Communist?
Don't you hold any respect for consumerism?
People like you ruins the economy, not to mention the normal flow and glow of our bonfire of vanities.
You, and your little camera should be banned for life from this prestigious temple of consumerism.

That is a compliment, I wished to heared of :)

Ben O Connor: I HATE ADD ON FLASHES !

So hard to make it built in ? At least you can make it wireless capable, That It would deserves t carry with it !

Both solutions occupy the hot-shue ! So where can EVF attached ? The IQ or Buck/bang ratio decreasing.

Anyway, I have a GM1 now and stres of "carry a flash in anywhere of me" (pocket etc.) has gone! And no evf but built in wifi keeps these two cameras eaqual in my evaluation.

After all , Its just my personal opinions.

Ben O Connor: İts like rolex watch. Surely there are multi functional army watches by far better priced from Casio
Or there are thousand other car brands. No need the drive Rolls-Royce ...

IT - IS - A -UNIQUE - LUXURY- ITEM !!!

I also don't see ANY logic to buy something exact same than Panasonic models. But this one is UNIQUE !

Hmmm so you are one of the few who buys Hasselblad stellar. Sure I have no idea what I'm talking about ;)

I am not rich. And as long as "exact same!" Why should I pay more ? LX100's leica sister is a bit better in this way. At least has different outlook and optional metal grip. Other than that....

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: EISA just annoucned, They have given the "Ugliest Add on Flash" award to Panasonic.

One good thing about LX100; its leica sister is just 50€ more expensive. Offers same specs and optional grip is more beautiful than one on Panasonic.

But still that dum-bass add on flash! I wish leica would give their own old brick looking flash with it.

Not my choice anyway. I wish the best to its owners.
