  • Replied in Well...
    As someone who generally likes a wider FOV, I bought that lens (the PL 25mm) and I really like it. I bought it primarily for shooting bands and figured that the focal length and fast max aperture ...
  • Cool idea... I need to make a visit when I'm in DC.

  • I just rented this lens for a little thing that I'm doing (photographing a music fest) and after a bit of initial testing it appears to work just fine on my Oly body... but I can't get the barrel ...
  • I have that camera and the Panasonic versions of the two lenses that you bought it with (I started with a Panasonic GH2). I'm certainly not a pro but Id consider myself a serious photographer and ...
  • Replied in Seriously?
    I won't argue that nikon hasn't really taken mirrorless all that seriously, but it doesn't seem very likely that they would start by producing a DSLR style camera that's part of a best selling ...
  • I personally would find 35mmm rather limiting and if I were going to go back to film, I'd probably buy some old medium format gear to use. I shoot with a variety of different aesthetics in mind ...
  • ... that the gear doesn't make the photographer. What's more is that the technology has gotten so good that it isn't necessary to spend lots of money to get really nice image quality. Sometimes it ...
  • I think that it might have to do with the fact that the state of the art has gotten so good that there's less of a reason for folks to upgrade. Take my Olympus Em-10, it's an older model and if it ...
  • the photos look very nice, without  any visible sign of any kind of lens defect. I;d say that you got a great deal and as others have said, I wound't worry too much about having the latest and ...
  • If it were me, I'd want the GM5... it would seem to be the most flexible and best IQ of all mentioned, though even with the small kit zoom it might be a bit bulkier. A second compact lens though ...
  • I just found one of these in a free bin, in my neighborhood. I tend to look through boxes of free stuff whenever I walk by one and since I recognized this thing as photo related, I grabbed it. I ...
  • I totally agree with you... Often a singe work without any context will impress me. Very often though I feel that seeing a whole portfolio of work and/or knowing some background on it helps in my ...
  • Replied in Generally no...
    A good photo is a good photo to me, no matter what the photographer may have used to create it. Still every now and then I'm extra-impressed with a great image if I find that it was taken with ...
  • Replied in No idea...
    ... but I also live in Portland and that Newspace place is very cool. It isn't so far from where I live so I really need to get out there more to check out the work. There's also a place downtown ...
  • I feel like there was a lot of really great work done on 35mm.... though for the most part it was the kind of thing that didn't rely on a great deal of detail to get it's point across. I'm kind of ...
  • Robert Wyatt? I've been a fan of his for many, many years. Never heard this track though.... cool!
  • ...#s 2, 3 and 5 are variations on the same thing. And that particular thing really doesn't matter anyway as (at least in the US) Pentax doesn't seem to be marketing to the "casual customer." ...
  • I won't get into politics (though I certainly don't disagree with you) but the idea that DPR is strictly a 'gear forum" is a bit silly. The area that we're posting in is called "general" so that ...
  • No doubt... there's lots of folks on DPR that are very knowledgable about the medium and not just the gear. I was merely speaking about a certain subset of people on here (a lot of folks, I think) ...
  • On the attitudes that I see expressed so often on these forums and the fact that there's so much information available at everyone's finger tips. Everyone who's on DPR is also obvously on the web ...
