$8,000 for a camera that isn’t made for quick focusing, action photos, videos of anything that moves, high-ISO shots, or fiscally responsible human beings? Tack on another few grand for a lens? You’re paying more for them to remove the red dot? You’re insane, or maybe just a camera snob.
There’s this routine you go through when you review a camera. The first thing you do is take it out of the box and shoot whatever mundane object is directly in front of you. It’s a throwaway shot, a test to make sure the camera is operational and meets the minimum requirements for calling itself a camera. For this reason, many camera reviewers’ SD cards are half-full of pictures of laptop keyboards, pens, coins, coffee cups, and desk flair.
