Speaking of pretend photographers, I may have done you a disservice
with the orange juice shot. You have never pretended that you knew a
damn thing about lighting, being an all natural goodness nature type
photographer of vast experience who can take any camera and produce
tremendously attractive images - but only in available light. That
makes sense. So, with that ability to judge the existing light and
get the shot when it is appropriate and your fine sense of
composition, let's see a good avialable light image out of you.

Since this is rec.photo.digital, I've posted some of my 'happy snaps'
for you Nothing special, just personal, recreational shots and only
one not natural light. I like B&W, so I included a few for the hell
of it. The bicyclist was shot with the popup flash and the guy in the
Civil War uniform was a grab shot. What you got, Sparky? Lieing's
not allowed. You do it so much better than me that it wouldn't be
fair.

actually they've done ok. not terrific, but not as bad as contax,
kodak, fuji and everyone's favourite poster-child of failure, sigma.
it's amazing how much sigma is pouring into that sinkhole.

No, I will wait for at least one year.

Olympus and Pentax may be doing OK, but Konica-Minolta doesn't exist as
a camera company anymore--their product lines will continue to exist as
long as Sony thinks that there's a hope of making a profit in that
market and not a moment longer.

that goes for you too, which means you haven't tested it either, so
your claims are also anecdotal and opinion.
