    I can't remember its name. Additional to the inside seating there were tables each side of the door by the canal. Would have to check photos I took, but I'm away from home at the moment.

     

    If it was beside the canal then it wasn't the Blue Teapot. I couldn't think of a café actually by the canal but I don't often walk that stretch of canal.

    Yes, sometimes it is difficult to translate your thoughts from Russian to English, it is not possible to convey your thoughts.

     

     

    Tell me about it! I spent three years in Germany, not speaking a word of German when I arrived, and I sometimes found myself wanting to beat my head against the wall in frustration at not being able to convey my thoughts adequately. I think people often don't often take this into consideration when talking to foreigners. You can be the most accomplished conversationalist in the world but if you only have a very limited vocabulary it counts for nothing.

     

    Neli, you're doing fine so far.

    Intrigued by your conclusion, not tried either though I have an X-Pro1 and X-E1 so certainly familiar with the Fuji 16.3MP sensor, on paper the Nex-6 seems to be avery similar spec to the X-T1. Would that be build quality, dynamic range, AF? Just curious, as I say, haven't tried the Sony.

     

     

     

    Overall image quality.

    I love my Canon 24-105mm but the combination with the 5D MkII is so much bigger and heavier than the Fuji.

     

     

    Best combination I've ever owned. I've got other lenses but I reckon I do 95% of my work with this combo. I have a NEX6 and I've tried an X-T1 but they can't come near it for quality. I'm wondering whether more recent Sonys or Fujis have made significant leaps forward since then. But for now my shoulder can just about cope with a bag (with a flexible strap) full of FF DSLR kit. For how long though?

    Fight this 'til the end because if those pics are taken down, editorial photography as we know it will be gone...  In my opinion, of course.

     

     

    And mine. Most emphatically. There is NO WAY I would take these down. I would respond to the company saying that under UK law you have a perfectly legal right to take, displauy and license these photos and please could they explain why they feel they have a right to have them removed. We must not be bullied. As the Colonel says, it will be the end of street photography for all of us.

    Scuse me?? So I'm a posh vagabond and/or wannabe?? A campervan is a small converted van like a Toyota Hiace, Beetle, etc. Anything bigger like Winnebago type is a motorhome. It is a clear category on the vehicle registration. Size matters. And I would never hire a narrowboat...

     

    I said "Some people", Gen. And I was talking about how the terms are used by such people, not about the officially recognised definitions. I've been a part of the motorised camping fraternity in the past and I can assure you that in the UK the two terms are often used interchangeably, by users and especially by dealers who would like customers to think that a Hiace is a "home" rather than just a "van". I usually referred to my Renault Master conversion as a campervan but it was certainly sold to me as a motorhome. Maybe it's different in Oz ;)
