Okay. Let me be clear about one thing. I do agree that there are some incredibly talented photographers in this thread, and equally, some great personalities. If not, I wouldn't still be following this thread.
But I wasn't trying to say that everyone is better at the 5DIII thread. Rather this is something I picked up as I started to pay attention to the two rather active threads. I simply started to the pay attention to the fact that the overall input quality in the 5DIII is better, IN MY OPINION. So, there are some crazy talented guys in this thread but there seem to be more of those in the other one. Vice versa, there's a lot more GAS related to talk in this one, and considerably less in the other one.
It's an opinion, not an insult. Believe it or not, I'm very careful about not insulting individuals.
Anyways, my timezone tells me it's bed time. I'll be curious to see what sort of plot this developed into once I wake up. I'm more than delighted to keep on discussing, either in this thread or in PM if everyone feels that I'm side tracking this thread.
I think youre side tracking this thread. Before this thread became so big in terms of posters, we were a group out of 10 or so peeps. We talked about gear, posted shots and everything was very friendly. Nadim created this thread and named it "Lounge". To my understanding here can be discussed anything related to camera gear, preferably sony gear. We can post photos, we can talk about physics related to photography and optics, and last but not least about gear.
Since weeks Im seeing that more and more people seem to follow this thread and the more people get in here the more it gets harsh. I think most people dont know that the base group that we were, was a very mature, and polite community.
However, a few people here also post here when they dont find time to shoot, but still want to keep up to date with the photography world and even enjoy other pictures or discussions. I would like to end that topic and please do not judge the quality of the pictures in this thread. You are here like for a few weeks? The community when we started here is here for like 2 years (the thread before this combined) or so so please dont come here to judge the images when you not really now that not everything posted here is intended to be top work.
And just for you, a not professional shot i did during vacations last week
