    I had one of those too, but when the F3 came out it stole my heart, then when they launched the F3P I knew I'd found my true love! I worked with them for almost a decade, but the F4 was such a poor...

    That's a long story Jerry, but in my distant nutshell view he's a petulant spoilt little brat who wanted more space on his car and suit for his private sponsors than his team would give him, so he...

    Great race, finally Lewis drove the way we always thought he should, it's a shame he'll be in a slower car next year.

    Any camera you buy today will be a dodo in five years, all today's cameras have a life cycle of a laptop or a cell phone. The only reason to buy a system is because you really want all the...

    I think Leica is also trapped by it's traditional rangefinder legacy, and that makes it hard to really innovate. They do get great reviews, but I wouldn't consider one at that price point.

    I'd suggest not far at all, and I'd also guess that it'll be Sony or Fuji who make it as they don't have a legacy SLR business to protect. The NEX system is really good, and rumor is they'll bring...

    Technically 50mm is the closet to the eye's sight, but 35mm is closer to the perceived width of vision, hence it is the lens that came on most fixed focal length cameras in the old days.

    If you asked me for a pick of just one lens it would be the 35mm f1.4, that is the best single do all lens, which is why it is the standard on so many old pre-zoom p&s cameras.

    I don't know that lens, but conventional wisdom is that a short range zoom will have much higher quality through out it's range, so I'd suggest something in the 28-135 range. I use the 24-70 for...
