I didn't even know that there was such a thing, and therefore had no way of knowing what you were talking about.
I wonder why abbreviations and shortcuts are all the rage these days. Is it really that hard to type a few more letters into one's post, to ensure that all who read it will understand it?
My thought is that it probably has to do with many of us getting used to texting and/or those of us who browse the forum mostly on mobile devices which aren’t so easy to type long responses on. The texting abbreviations took off back when we paid per message and could only use a certain number of characters in a text, so abbreviations let us get more for our money, and we’re much easier to type out on the old T9 system of 0-9 phone buttons. Now that we have progressed to full keyboards and browsers on our smartphones, they’ve just stayed around even though they’re not really needed.
If you’d like to see a place where abbreviations are rampant and really difficult to understand, come work in healthcare.
As to the topic at hand, overall the images both look pretty nice (without pixel peeping). I’m sure the output quality of the P&S would be more than adequate for most people’s use, and even acceptable as a small sized alternative for many enthusiasts who don’t want to carry around a bunch of equipment.
