    Spring is Springing

    Nice one, Mike. As we say in Ireland, Spring is a bit previous in your neck of the woods. We are still in Winter here. My cherry tree is as bare as my bank account haha.

    47MP Leica Q2 announced. Does this make my Leica Q obsolete? I smell GAS ......

    Aaaaaarrrrrrgggggggvhhhhhhhh

    Thankfully, as far as I am concerned, the smell of GAS has diminished. P.S. I have several Fujinon lenses if anyone is interested. The Leica Q is such a pleasure to shoot with that my Fuji XT-1 sees little use these days.

    Luc, I was joking. I like the photos I get with the Q - and it is a very nice and intuitive camera in the hand. I will take your advice. The Q Singular, as opposed to the Q Squared, is good enough for me.

    Aaaaaarrrrrrgggggggvhhhhhhhh

    Yes Mike, I must admit that I am tempted. I could unload my Q and a whole bunch of Fuji gear. and, as evert schoolboy knows, the next Firmware update from Leica will degrade the performance of the Q by 35 percent! No decision in haste. I will think on it some more.

    Changing Systems

    It didn't! That's why he swapped it for a vacuum cleaner!

    Changing Systems

    Mike, I learned my craft on a Canon AE-1. Manual focus, shutter priority or manual exposure only.

    Changing Systems

    Mike, Belated birthday congrats from me! For a moment, I was worried that you had surrendered to the dreaded GAS and were changing to a Canon system! Don't do it! P.S. I have the Nikon version of your mug.

    Mirrorless for Aviation Photography

    The same thing happens with Nikon DSLRs.

    Mirrorless for Aviation Photography

    Yes.

    What’s the occasion?

    I earnestly hope we are not inadvertently reigniting the 'mirrorless is better than DSLR" debate which almost destroyed this site.

    What’s the occasion?

    And Fuji have announced what is effectively 90 per cent of an XT-3 at less than half the price.

    Yes. A great illustration of the Fibonacci Sequence.

    Spouting Rhubarb

    I have not had a fizzy drink for about 20 years. I could not live without bread so I make my own.

    Spouting Rhubarb

    Rhubarb is wonderful. When I was a child it was growing in our garden, so we ate it frequently.

    Tagline Grammar?

    I see the site is now "The Recreational Photographer's Community". What? Just ons single photographer??? To include us all, it would need to be "The Recreational Photographers' Community".

    Tagline Grammar?

    The one that vexes me is the insertion of a superfluous apostrophe in plural nouns, e.g. "I bought two balaclava's".

    Tagline Grammar?

    Mike, do not despair. You are a good photographer.
  22. vivionm

    Tagline Grammar?

    Mike, it's not.

    More Sea Birds

    I never see gulls here, being so far from any coast. These are very good photos.

    Tagline Grammar?

    There is a public park in Dublin named Saint Stephen's Green. Many Dubliners write it as "Saint Stephens'es Green".

    Tagline Grammar?

    Correct, Mike.
