There’s something about resting by your master’s feet with your favourite bone just a whisker away. Life is good.
I should say I returned my Canon T2i. The story is too long to tell here but, in a nutshell, I had two cameras. A Panasonic Fz35 and the Canon T2i. I had to get rid of one so I took them out for some comparison shooting last night and this morning. The Canon owned the night but not by as much as you would think. The real surprise was the day shots. In good light, the Fz was every bit as good as the Canon T2i, sometimes, even better! I know, I know, on paper it’s no contest and in fairness to the Canon, I was using the “kit lens” Canon supplies. Still, the performance of the Panasonic was remarkable. To get fast lenses to let the Canon shoot to it’s potential would cost an extra two to three thousand. Lot’s of weight. Even more money! With this in mind I returned the Canon.
I confess I was feeling as blue as the dog. Then I happened on a site by Gary Denness. (click on the Fz35 tag – look for Fz35 gallery ) showing what can be done with the camera in the right hands. Wow! It seems I have a great deal more to learn. I need to reorder that Lx3 as well.
