    Ah yes, I read this yesterday. I'm happy to agree with him. Any excuse to "need" a Leica M something :)

    A breath of fresh air, if you keep the mix right

    Bill, I just finished reading this article. I think Randall Kelley's points are well taken. I don't want to give away to much - there are some great analogies that I'd love to quote here but don't want to spoil the read for anyone else.

    I'm going to leave it a that for now, though I am tempted to go on and on.:wink:

    So a big thank you, Bill, for bringing this linked article over here. :thumbup:

    I haven't been reading photography blogs lately, but have often enjoyed Steve Huff's, as well as Kirk Tuck's and others.

    Yes and thanks, I read it also. Steve's site is wonderful for me...he has a different approach
    to photography and he has just moved to Arizona! (Not that that means anything).

    Combined with this site and a few others....I'm content.

    The 37th frame...: Steve who!

    Thanks for sharing,
    Pete

    I like reading Steve Huff's reviews and blog. I've noticed in his reviews that he knows how to make a negative point sound 'ok', which isn't necessarily a good or bad thing, but nevertheless he's a good writer and communicator.

    About this article 'A Better Camera' I agree with it.

    My 2cents worth of opinion regarding using better equipment is that for me personally, knowing I have good equipment in my hands, it's a good thing to know that if I produce bad photos it's because of my lack of photography skills and not because of a limitation of the camera.

    Interested to read Huff's review of the Ricoh GRDIII where he writes: "NO CAMERA, no matter HOW expensive will make you a better photographer." (His emphasis).

    But the cheaper the camera, the better you have to be... at marketing, anyway: "No, I really wanted the subject to be out of focus!"
