    You did the right thing for not blowing it out of context - for thats your wife best friend's brother.......very considerate of you.

    But having said that, if he ever send you the iphone photos, share them with us, I am 100% sure it can never beat the same photos taken by a DSLR. If that's true, then photographers can throw away all their gears and each uses an iphone 4, perhaps iphone 5, 6, 7, 8........will suffice!!!!

    What nonsense was he trying to make a claim about!!!

    Dont you agree there cannot be any comparisons between iphone and DSLR, they are totally different.

    Does the iPhone's lens use L glass?

    What about Nokia? They use CZ glass

    Nothing great. Way below the standard of Zeiss lenses in some Nokia models.

    L Lens - good to have.

    For photos in normal light, fixed 50mm F1.4 lens is not worse than 50mm L.
    May be better than a zoom-L.

    He obviously never heard of Leica, Zeiss, Schneider and Rodenstock. Just a frog in a well.
    Actually the idiot is kinda right. Largan is L lens what? Just that L is for lousy.

After eat finish, my wife ask me to use my camera to take pics of she and her best-friend (and 'her' brother). I'm using my 40D, a 50mm f1.4, and flash. After 2-3 takes, suddenly this brother says, "Actually I'll not using anything than L lenses. My iPhone can takes picture better than your lens." I'm a bit surprised, but decided to challenge him "Really? Than maybe we do with your iPhone?" (I'm not 'yet' an iPhone user). To my more surprise, he indeed replace me to take pictures using his iPhone. And he done this without any change in his face, as this is normal thing, or he doing the right thing. We take several pics, and ask the waiter to takes for us.
    And then after we sit down, he asks me mine or my wife email adress to send the picture. I'm still in confuse, and asks what camera he using. He said he is long time using Canon, and only use the L lens to takes picture. "Moment is very important, and cannot repeating. Be prepared by only using the best lens, than you ruin the moment itself by using just standard lens." he lectured me. At the end, before we say good bye, he again promised to email us the pics on his iPhone, and tell me "Sorry I left my camera at home, if I know we will need it tonight, I'll bring it. But I think iPhone also in good use tonight"
    Man, I'm still in surprise. And so surprised until I forgot he just need to transfer the pics via bluetooth to my Nokia phone
    i only shoot medium format. not good meh?

    I can only agree to a point.

    You commended TS for not blowing up because of the idiot being wife's best friend's brother.

    Then, what is TS? TS is wife's husband.

    Who is more important, husband or best friend's brother.

    Food for thought.

    Ignore him.

    My colleague attend a photo session and the trainer told her that Sony camera is not as good.

    But I use both Sony and Canon and I found both has it strength.

    Canon produces 'L' lens and Sony has 'G' lens.

    I like to try new gadget although Minolta/Konica was bought over by Sony!

    Weird people exist everywhere. You did the right thing not to challenge him. No point challenge such people. Waste of effort.

    I think it is a case of someone who thinks he is an elitist but in fact is mistaken or misinformed. Well. L lens is not everything...like what others commented... how about MF, RF, large format n the likes. It's like someone who thinks driving a KIA forte coupe is a big deal and looks down on someone with a picanto
