Coming from a gentleman who surely knows a thing or two about yapping, I'll take it as a compliment. And to stay with canine metaphors, what would that make you: a mad dog
As previously mentioned, "you almost never sincerely try to stick to the actual topic, but instead you invariably take-up the stance of a yapping, sarcastic prick and just ramble-on about nothing."
All you do is repeatedly prove my point.
So, let me get this straight: if you do not address me directly, I am not allowed to comment on your threads? I thought this is a public forum, and that is what members do all the time: comment on each other's threads. Or that commenting on your general statements with a general statement of my own constitutes "coming to you yapping"?
There is nothing you "get straight" ... on the first try ... but, yes, you're now beginning to see and come to terms with the fact that (once again) you
originally addressed me
in this thread, and with a yet another
Oh, wait. You actually do not understand the meaning of the phrase "emperor has no clothes", do you? It was not directed at you personally... I did not call you "emperor" (God forbid)... I did not mean you have no clothes (eeew!).
So, here is the meaning: it applies to all situations in which someone claims certain things (i.e., emperor's new cloths) have certain qualities that are invisible to those stupid and incompetent. You see the trap? If you see and say that 'the emperor has no clothes", you automatically label yourself as stupid and incompetent, as per the fairy tale plot.
No genius, once again you invent things (and beliefs for other people) that never actually existed.
What is then the connection with Zeiss (or Leica, or whatever else some people claim to have "mythical" qualities)? Well, some people claim that certain Zeiss lenses have that "3D look", or "something special", "certain aura", "mystique", blah, blah... Like you did in the statement I addressed. Those people also do not bother to demonstrate the difference visually, claiming that if you do not see it, it must be because you are "stupid and incompetent". And that is the parallel with the "emperor has no clothes" tale.
Jesus H. Keeriiist ... you really do have a severe disorder where that really does cause you to ramble on about nothing.
Shake your head and clear-out your idiotic daydreams. For a moment.I merely made a statement about the Zeiss lens
I never claimed is was either mythical or magical.
I never digressed to any of the things you invented in your head just now.
All I claimed (with quite a bit of support) was that the Zeiss lens had superior qualities in certain respects, producing images than have what many people as having a "3D" look.
Please put the pipe down and stop with your rambling-on about nothing that was actually said.
And every time someone claims something similar, I will stand up against it. Why? Because I strongly believe statement like those are detrimental to becoming a better photographer. As long as someone believes that acquiring a lens with "mythical" qualities will give his own photography the same "mythical" status, they will not be stimulated to look for the real ways to improve their photography: learning to see, learning to feel, studying composition, classics, etc. Why all that hard work when they can simply buy a "mythical" lens?
And just in case you missed it in my earlier post: this comes from a guy who has more Zeiss lenses than you can dream of. I am also a Canon user for several decades, but I find your Canon fanboy-ism simply over the top.
I do not "dream" about Zeiss lenses. There are precisely 2 that I plan on getting in the future.
I care nothing for "you," what lenses you have, nor for your misguided tangents to which you repeatedly digress.
The only thing "over the top" are your perpetual and bizarre digressions into the world of fantasy, where simple statements about a lens' superiority somehow get transposed into "Emperors with no clothes" ... or "detriments to improving one's photography" ... while at the same time YOU YOURSELF hilariously bought the very same lens precisely because you too
thought it was better
Now then, do you have the strength not
to respond to me anymore?
