    Regarding whether going pro, actually I am just trying to take photograhy as a hobby. One of my friends did mentioned this. He did mentioned that I might very fast "out-grown" my desire and wanted to upgrade. But with regards on going pro, i don't forsee that.
    don worry about Upgrades. The speed that Sony is coming out with new DSLRs, ur wallet will not be able to keep up definately

    And actually most of the time people will upgrade lenses more than upgrading cameras.

    How do you define a REAL pro or a pro? Someone who earns a living via photography or those photographers who are sponsored?

    If you define a pro as someone who earns a living thru photography, there are many using Sony, Pentax and Olympus too. Maybe you need to you need to go out more.

    I know a pro who uses Sony just because of the 135mm f1.8 lens. Have never personally tried it before, but it is definitely good stuff

    haha, you can diss me or whatever, but this is still the truth : your equipment might not matter, but canon and nikon still make the best cameras in the world and being where they are, no matter what you say, its very very hard for sony to catch up.

    being an ex olympus shooter, i can tell you this.

    and this isn't what i learnt from them - i gained inspiration through researching the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Garry Winogrand, Robert Frank, Zoriah Miller, etc. and i don't talk about half the technicalities everyone in this forum keeps talking about.

    Honestly speaking, I've hardly seen anyone in this forum talk about these artists...

    dude, your well on the way to getting this thread locked...
    thats basically a personal attack on krishna91.

    whether youre just defending sony for whatever its worth, or youre just jealous that krishna is at brooks taking photography for a bit more then a hobby, there is a clear cut line between healthy debate and personal attack... and mate you crossed it.

    I'm just glad that the mirror has never fallen out of my DSLR. Oh wait, that's what I would expect if I buy a "best camera in the world".


    Ok, so you're studying. Great. While you are studying, the rest of us are out earning money with our pictures.

    And most REAL PROs that I know are too busy shooting to teach. :P

    uhh , it really sucks that you compare yourself to someone who's barely 18 my friend. And yes, i've been shooting commercial work in my holidays for people who i meet in my travels - usually businessmen - just because you shoot fashion/studio/commercial doesn't make you a pro.

    UHHHHHHHH they are part time teachers, and if you're saying they're bad, go see riceball photography shop. Their books are sold there. Ralph Clevenger's iconic image of an iceberg grossed more than $1 million in STOCK ALONE. So get your facts right before you speak.

    And yet you think you can spout on about "best cameras"? Based on what? Marketing?

    We have experience. That counts a LOT more than sponsored marketing campaigns, or the "wisdom" of people who get their gear sponsored.

    You have much to learn about the real world my friend.
