About me:

My plan is to ever improve my trade, my hobbies, and my relationships with family, friends, and my God. My trade is teaching Math and Computers. My primary hobbies are lutherie (guitar building) and photography. My God is slow to anger and abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor His anger forever; He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us for our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth so great is His love for those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us. If you have questions or gripes about my God, I always enjoy talking with someone who is a seeker. Rock throwers are rarely convinced of anything spiritual and I can respect their desire to believe differently than myself.

SirSeth's recent activity

  • Ricoh has officially announced development of a FF camera. I think they also revealed it will have a crop mode for their less than FF coverage lenses. The newest lenses are certainly FF size and...

  • Nice blurb about DPR at the end. Are there really a lot of people interested in photography (and having an internet connection) that don't know about DPR?

    Anyhow, that was fun. I like hearing the...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Yes, if you only were to buy a body only and no lenses you have a point. Cameras are not much good without lenses. Oh, and if one were allowed only one camera then you also have a point. Oh, and if...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    I have the A7 and E-M1 that I traded out APS-C DSLRs for. Sensor size is an important thing in both directions depending on priorities. I don't have a problem with large and heavy lenses for my A7....

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    As I understand it, the rating is against cameras that are currently contenders in the target field. The good competition is the only reason the E-M5ii scores lower. You might say that APS-C DSLR...

  • A lot of it has to do with the quality/material of the zipper and how the lining is attached. My Lowe Pro has the zipper partially in a flap so there is no rubbing on the inside and no scraping...

  • That's why I think that a variety of products with targeted designs is nice. I prefer the zipper if done right. I've never had a scratch on any of my stuff, but of course we have different habits...

  • I have a front opening and rear opening backpack. I prefer my front opening. It does, however, open directly down the middle which is a little different than most.

    As far as flap style messenger...

  • I have a Sony A7 and E-M1. The size requirements I find to be nearly identical and can use the same size bag for each system. I have a different bag when I want to carry large lenses (300mm f2.8)....

  • Well done and informative video imo. It covers the features nicely and the bags look versatile, convenient, and comfortable. They are visually appealing and I do see the advantage of bags designed...

  • I also agree that the margins are higher on high end enthusiast products that have mass appeal. But it's a curve because high end stuff can also have fewer buyers and can be made in smaller...

  • Budget products are just really hard to make money with right now. Every company is trying to tap the higher end where the margins are better. They are also trying to raise the A7 line in the...

  • The new lenses look fantastic. They are expensive as are most new lenses from Canikon. I really would love that 90mm macro though and the 28mm with converter looks like an innovative idea.

  • How about the Canon FD 50mm f1.4 @ less than $75?
    Or the Rokkor 50mm f1.8? Or the Rollei 50mm f1.8? Or just about any other 50mm ever made.... ;) Totally agree though that Sony should produce a...

  • Sometimes we start out with an idea and a plan to make it happen and then things that are unforeseen pop up. How we handle these failures really matter. Leadership sometimes messes up, and sure...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7S Review preview

    My comment applies to the entire A-series of course. If video is a main priority, then the A7s would be optimum, if high res. landscape stills is then the A7r. A7 is a value leader imo, but all...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7S Review preview

    Part of the brilliance of this series for both stills and video is that nearly every legacy lens ever made for any mount can be used. I just purchased an A7 and find my OM Zuikos perform better...

  • I shoot FF and m4/3rds. I do enjoy an inexpensive 85mm f1.4 on FF and sometimes I stop down to achieve greater DOF. I could even get along with a compact 85mm f3.5 if the IQ was superb. But at...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview

    Not huge like the new lenses announced for Pentax FF coming soon. Those lenses look like logs on a brick. (Not that I don't want to get some of that action). I just got an A7 though to add to...

  • I agree with Linerider. Some people find it no problem to pack along a bunch of spares, but others find having to change batteries during a mission critical shoot a no go. Personally, I just find...
