say what? are you maybe confusing this fine forum with FB or summat? I call BS.... POTN is far better than some (most) other "free" establishments. :lol:

say yes.

heaps of useless clutter and wasted space, animations that are pointless, many extra clicks to accomplish things that are just not worth even bothering.

I hate visiting this place now and do so only rarely now.

Obligitory new gear duck shot....

QUOTED IMAGE

Panasonic G85, 100-300 II F4.0-5.6 @ 300 (600 FF equiv.) ISO 200, f5.6 1/50s handheld. Probably should have increased the ISO, but the dual IS (body + lens) did a pretty good job. Actually I shot this one from waste height with the articulating screen. So despite doing just about everything possible to stuff up the shot it still looks pretty good. I must force myself to trust auto ISO....or at least get back into the habit of thinking about it more when shooting.

Who says M4/3 can't blur the background?

I like this pic, and yeah, tricks and tips I learnt way back in film and box camera times times still seem to apply, even in M4/3 ;)


Panasonic Lumix G9 and lenses from 7mm wide to 300mm long.

Sigma seems to be on fire at the moment with their new gear, and the test results are impressive ............ Still after a 500-600mm zoom and a new wide to below 17mm

yea I liked the 24-70 F2.8

I might look at getting that to replace the nice soft 24-105 F4. Shame tho I would be missing the 70-105 range so I might have to get a cheap zoom lens.

I'm trying life without the 24-105 F4, got the 16-35 f/4 and the 70-200 f/2.8, figuring I can cover the missing 35m with my feet, liking the results so far :)
