    Wa Si Pro!

    Own a Kyocera compact.
    It takes u to newer heights in photography.
    Learn to shoot without without manual control of exposure and focusing.
    Struggle against the elements of nature, conform to the camera one sided mind track.

    that sounds like a Canon lens lineup to me!
    not too sure about that 6/5.6 though


    Oh and last option is for Red Dawn, because Canon not doing very well in Poll I - 20/1.8
    i just wrote in to Canon requesting EF versions of the 20 f1.8

    Sorry Jed, I don't see "a pair of sharp eyes", "taste", "patience" and "good knowledge of exposure" in your list of selections

    Exclamation Ha!

    This poll is a nice joke. Still, I know of SOOO many people who think they will become superb photogs like HCB or AA if only they had that Leica M6/EOS-1V/whatever.

    I own an OM-2 and I'm extremely satisfied :P

    you are a professional if you own :

    AF 35mm f/1.4 G (minolta)
    AF 85mm f/1.4 G(D) (minolta)
    AF 200mm f/2.8 APO G (minolta)
    AF 300mm f/2.8 APO G (minolta)
    AF 300mm f/4 APO G (minolta)
    AF 400mm f/4.5 APO G (minolta)
    AF 600mm f/4 APO G (minolta)
    AF 200mm f/4 MACRO APO G (minolta)
    AF 17-35mm f/3.5 G (minolta)
    AF 28-70mm f/2.8 G (minolta)
    AF 80-200mm f/2.8 APO G (minolta)



    G-Series AF lenses stand out for the distinctive level of image quality and photographic performance they provide serious photographers. Circular aperture design, double-floating and floating focusing systems, AD (Anomalous Dispersion) glass, aspherical lens elements and a focus-hold button, are advanced G-Series design features that help produce a unique soft and natural defocusing effect, as well as enabling you to take truly high quality photos with the sharpness and vividness you expect.

    G-series lenses are Minolta's high-performance class optics. They have the best specifications, feature special advanced technology, and offer the best image quality of all Minolta lenses. G-series lenses are designed to meet the high expectations of the most demanding professional. The quality of the image they produce is among the finest in the industry.

    Each G-series lens incorporates one or more of the following features: circular aperture, double floating and floating-focusing systems, Internal focus, Anomalous Dispersion (AD) glass, aspheric elements, and focus-hold buttons.



    See, Minolta got so MANY pro lenes. This G is different from Nikon G. Canon Pro lens is called "L", Nikon pro lens is called ???.

    One look at the finishing and a peek thru the viewfinder wif the lens, u know is a pro lens. Incidently, Nikon pro lens seem to have a gold ring at the end of the lens barrel.

    The end result is to get a perfect shot. 2 approach...

    1. Best equipment + lousy photographer = quality shot OR

    2. No so Best equipment + Best Photographer = quality shot.

    2 ways to perfection. pick your choice.

    #1 will never happen. Give a lousy photographer a [insert your favourite top-end camera + lens combo here] and the results will still not be good. Yes, maybe it's super sharp, exposure is spot-on, etc but that does not make it a good photo.

    There is no best photographer in the world.

    One should strive as a goal to create contemporary mysterious
    or still-life images with aesthetic context with one
    of the choices given or even with a primitive camera gear.

    The tools that the photographer uses is a novelty to his
    image-making process especially in such areas like
    sports, photojournalism, candid, events and reportage.
    With better tools a thinking photographer can tell a more
    exciting and appealing story.

    Cartier would have done his work just as well if he was
    given a Yashic G, the range-finder with a 45mm f/1.7 lens.



    ______________________________________________
    There is no such thing as the best artist or photographer
    but only accomplished image makers who can bring with
    them a strong sense of what they are doing with the
    medium.

    Guys,

    It's alonely at the Top. And the constant fear of being replaced. Sooner or later, there's always be someone challenging the TOP to be no.1. I rather be no.2.... and in my opinion, there's no no.1... and I owned a Nikon D100.

    Cheers.
