That's funny IC. I would have said something like oh I don't know, perhaps my Minolta XK or my 50 year old Zeiss. LOL! About the only people I dread talking to about equipment is the diehard Leicaholics. They will drive you insane. Of course I'm the guy who tormented an editor one time by showing up with "just" a Casio P&S for a fashion shoot. Everybody involved knew what I was up to and played along. I thought the poor bastard was going to have a heart attack. After he calmed down a bit I had my assistant get the Sony DSLR and we did the shoot. The editor was a diehard Canon fiend and everything else was junk in his mind. He never did bring up cameras again after that stunt. You already know my position. All you need is a camera that's capable of doing a good job with the task at hand. Equipment doesn't impress me. Someone who knows how to run what they have does.

Oh I agree I love gear but don't get so wrapped up in it, mainly I can't afford it and also because I just need a good prime and I can do most anything with that. This guy had a Leica bag too haha he was a real nice fellow otherwise, but he suggested I use their 7d instead of my nex-6 but the Sony does way better than the 7d in most respects lol

LOL! Sometimes you just let the results do all the talking. In the end that's what really matters or at least it should.

Yeah, the "boring" stuff as in the stuff that pays the bills? Oh and how come there's a board going through the head of the twin on the left? ROFL!

Crane, there was limited space the other side was way too distracting with little colored sculptures. That board was so massive it couldn't be moved. It is distracting but less so than anywhere else in the studio.

Giving you sh*t. LOL. Sometimes you take what you can get, call it good and move on. Sounds like photojournalism to me.

Those fish could be better lit and the background is rather messy.

Oh I know, we were suppose to have lights and that didn't work out, so we improvised to being in the most lit part of the room. I get to do a fashion shoot this month so that will make up for this shoot smile.gif

Lawrence, don't you just love the 20mm? I had one on my OM-d it was a great lens. Nice set of pictures you have as well!

the 20mm pancake is one of those perfect things paired with a 4/3rd camera... especially on vacation, on the street, or a party.
