sorry we didn't get to meet in any of my Dubai trips, but I promise we will next time... ;)
Indeed, this is the market, and this are the times in which we are today, and He/She whom does not adapt, then remains left behind.
One must always take advantages of new technologies, and new ways of expressing one self artistically, and also in conducting business.
Of course when talking about business, that depends what the business is, and most importantly whom the clients are, and what are their specific demands.
But, again to each is own, and this goes not only for the individual professional but also for the individual piece of gear.
I have been using Canon glass for as fa as I can remember and have used some that most of you guys never even seen come to market,
yet I have a place for Canon 35mm STILL glass, as I have a place for 645 STILL glass, and of course a place for the various Cinema glass... ;)
Even so there is the exception, and the few which like many of us here, experiment with one and the other, none will replace each other, NONE!!
