The more I shoot, the more I realize the camera is not too important. Preparation and knowing your gear well, will often yield very similar results. I sold the P7000 a few weeks and acquired the Ricoh GRD III and even though they are different cameras, I must say that the P7000 does have a lot of positive attributes (they were not for me though). In the end, the fast lens of the Ricoh won me over, I don’t regret it one bit.
A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.
