"RE: D800 Lens choice - importance of quality"

For me, in the latest posts there is much to agree with, and little to disagree, even when they argue against each other. There are some valuable points, like: technical perfection is by no means everything, and anyway on a very high level. What matters is, I can say this for myself at least, the magic of the picture.

Certainly agreed, but when tilt-shift-lenses are considered, the point can be made that they are not so much made for street photography anyway, but for slow and dedicated work. They cost an arm and a leg, and are primarily used in such fields where, for most at least, resolution matters. And there is a question to be asked what it means for the contemporary practice of photography when these products are not taken care of, get sidelined in the technological workflow.

I am, I can only repeat myself, wary of influences of the industry which try, for marketing purposes, to push practitioners into certain directions. That is, I really do think one must not sink, not in a potentially creative medium like photography, just to the level of a consumer. Remember, there is no such thing as a "free consumer", whatever they tell you!
