When Doctors Disagree
I am never drawn to writers who cannot use the English language well - not that I decry their knowledge of photography for that. I realise that they may be wonderfully fluent in some other language and did I read that, I would be well informed. I don't, so I confine myself to those who can write what I can read.
I particularly look for people who own the gear and then use it to do what I do - passing by those who speculate on what they would like to own or what the manufacturer should do. I need facts and the people who have discovered these facts for themselves are in the best position to assist.
But what to do when two chaps both engage in the same business - paid wedding photography - and both have purchased the same camera and lenses - but have diametrically opposing views on the subject? Not just artistic views - they are both judging the gear and the way it works at the wedding. One loves it and one hates it. And they are both taking good pictures - you can see them on the net - and they are both right...
Well, nothing is perfect. The Patton tank is wonderful for crushing Volkswagens but woeful as a vacation tourer. We accept this a work around it.
I think that I, and you, who may well be struggling under similar confusions, will just have to come in and get the gear in hand and test it out ourselves. You can rent 'em and the lenses and make your own discoveries.
