    I firmly believe that providing a lens is of reasonable quality made by one major marque manufacturers, the most important thing is what the photographer points it at, and if photographers are going to agonise about anything it should be if their pictures actually mean anything.

    I 100% agree with that.

    Darn right. If 10% of the time spent discussing nuances of sharpness and contrast were used instead on actually shooting, practicing technique and gaining more experience we'd have way more better photographers in the world. It's amazing how the revered saints of photography from the 30's and 40's ever actually produced good photographs without today's computer-aided designed lenses and their ultra-modern multi-coatings. Then again we all enjoy a good circle-jerk, eh?

    idon'tknow rich,
    plenty of people back in those days ranted on about
    materials, and equipment &c. it started in the 1840s ...

    to be honest i think it would be better if it was edited
    and appeared in a bi monthly publication, too many people
    these days who haven't a clue hide behind a web-persona
    acting as if they are deities and demigods ...

    you're right tho, too much chat, not enough art

    Haha. This, I love.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
