That's my thoughts on them as well :( I've been a BMW guy for almost 10 years now because I love the driving experience they offer, but I've driven a few of their newer cars and although they're undoubtedly faster, they feel so much less connected, they're losing their roots :/

For now it seems that it's up to the lower end cars to bring back that excitement... my Mini puts a smile on my face that none of my BMW's did before it. If I were going to buy a brand new car today though it'd be the new Miata, Fiesta ST, Focus RS or Lotus Elise depending on my budget :lol:

Agree on the lower end cars having a more rewarding driving experience these days. The higher end stuff these days might be faster in a straight line or even handle better on a track....but rarely will you get the opportunity to exploit their potential, and even when you do, much less connected to the car due to all of the electronics and most importantly, the rarity of manual transmissions these days.

If I didn't have to lug kids around all the time, I'd probably get an FR-S purely for the fun factor.

Edit...not sure if you've ever played the games, but your car shots remind me of Forza Horizon. Take that as a compliment hah. I really like the aesthetic of the game.

The FR-S/BR-Z is a pretty cool car, I'm not sure I'd buy one though. My good friend has a BR-Z, got it the year they came out. It's a fun car, but it lacks the excitement of some of the other cars in it's price range... I drove his car pretty hard when I still had my E46 and I thought the E46 was all around a more fun car. I wouldn't write off FWD cars (it seems you are ;) ), I did for a long time being a BMW guy, but talk on the forums convinced me to try out a Mini and all it took was one test drive to change my mind, it handles like nothing I've driven before it, word has it that the Fiesta ST is even better and has plenty of room for kiddos ;)

And yes, I'm very familiar with Forza Horizon :) Great games, thanks for the compliment. Maybe that's subconsciously what I was going for with the amount of hours I put into those games :lol:

Thanks everyone for the kind words.
Packing up quickly, time to head out. Hit a hotel last night (easier to back everything up).
Here is one using the Rii + FE 70-300mm, a big crop. Poof is loving this lens on the a6300. I like the lens
especially for its weight. I've been using the PZ 18-200 for video and really like it. When we get state-side we'll
put them all together for a YouTube. Well you can't come here and not get sheep, they are everywhere. Probably be
a week or more before I can get back on the net--will have a lot of catching up when we get home-

Very nice Vinz. It wouldn't take much to adjust the colors of the flowers and leaves on her outfit to match her background even more.

I have no problem at all with natural light AWB ON MY a7R II, but it is a different story with artificial lights. In that regard my 5DS R is vastly superior to any other camera I have used.

The reason AWB is so much better on the 5DS is because Canon added a new AWB mode that absolutely nails the WB with artificial light. Even the 5D III is horrible by comparison. The 1DX II has the same feature, and I expect all future Canon cameras to have it.

The pace of this thread is far too steep to keep track of anything.

I had another corporate event gig today where I kept using the A7rii and 5DIII side by side, both hanging with Holdfast. The office had large windows and outside was all nice and sunny. All I can say is that the A7rii's AWB was, again, off (too cold). This keeps bothering me more and more on events, weddings and other gigs where I have to shoot and edit a lot of photos, and would rather not spend any extra time in PP when I could have things right in camera. I love the A7rii for portraits and personal work. Bit I will stick to Canon for a lot of the paid work. For what it's worth, I also feel that the AF selection point system is far too slow for weddings and events.

I miss a few days and the thread kicks it up a few notches.

--Med Man starts posting awesome Iceland shots

--Lucas starts posting Skyline and Ferrari porn

--Carlo lets it slip that his brother works at one of my favorite spots in Vegas

Gonna have to catch my breath here for a second . . .

Edit: Oh snap, and those roses Vinz!

I feel so cheated by the lack luster and downright craptastic Escorts we got here in the States :( My first car was an Escort and it was awful, I love the Euro spec Escorts though.
