Thanks so much for making my point.Um, er, only 50 some posts, I've drawn Neuro's ire already, oh my......
Because you seem to lack the ability to argue with facts, and so you argue with emotion. This will not get you far, except with the media.
So the F-150 and Mustang both have a 3.7L V6. Heck, the same 2.0T I4 is found in the Focus ST, the Fusion, and the Lincoln MKZ. Would you say they are the same car? Does the package surrounding the engine define the purpose of the car? Just because the sensor (motor) is the same, doesn't mean the package is the same.
In this automotive example, the 'heart' (I should have posted "heart" rather than "guts" above) is the same even though the vehicle and features differ. The 3.7 has the same combustion efficiency regardless of what vehicle it is installed in, ditto the 2.0T.
To further this Ford automotive analogy, The MKZ can be had with a 2.0T or a 3.7, same package with similar features, different heart.
A similar analogy works when comparing the Df and the D4, same heart, different features.
Comparing the Df with the D610 reveals similar fearures with a far different heart as in the MKZ analogy.
Am I arguing with emotion as you state? I think not.
to suggest falling back on manual focus as a routine practice makes about as much sense as recommending that everyone use an abacus to fill out their tax return.Gee, sorry for you that falling back to manual focus makes abacus sense to you. To me, and possibly to many others it makes perfect and practical sense.
Any time any machine fails to respond as and when I expect, I appreciate when said machine allows me to take control and achieve the end result I expect and desire.
Are you saying you'd prefer lens manufacturers reduce price by leaving off manual focus rings? If not, pray tell why the hostility regarding practice to the point of expertise of manual focusing skills?
.......it's kinda nice not to have to burn the rest of the roll, or rewind carefully to leave a tab exposed, when wanting to change ISO speed. ....I quite miss doing just that, I do not missing having to do that.
That ^ comment is unnecessary, un-called for and offensive.Um, er, only 50 some posts, I've drawn Neuro's ire already, oh my......
It's not the quantity, but rather, the quality...or more precisely, the lack thereof, that I find annoying.
Back on topic, I think the Df is absolutely gorgeous, the concept brilliant. Too bad it's a Nikon.
