Three Legged Thing is worth checking out - much better ergonomics than the Manfrotto 190 - but not a budget choice in respect of the higher end models. Excellent tripod though - both the pod itself...

If its a specifiic assignment, obviously I bring whatever is appropriate to the subject matter. If travelling abroad, I bring a 16-35 and a 105 or 180. That covers most eventualities. I rarely use...

I've used both and they each have limitations, but different limitations. I suspect you may be being offered the deal because the XT 1 is going to eclipse the X Pro 1. If you like using the Leica,...

This is a very good topic. I'm inclined to agree that calibration differences are less of an issue: certainly less of an issue than monitor resolution. I've tried to edit my images while travelling...

I think its not just overall size. I tried a Df in my local shop and thought it was very ungainly - especially in terms of width. In a similar vein, I started to get nostalgic for my M8 last year...

Interaction with the subject. Really great artists can bring out something in the person through the image and probably something of themselves as well. Portraiture is more about people than rules.
