    Just got this message on my flickr mail

    Your new mirrorless
    Looking at your pictures your d500 produces much better picture .
    The mirrorless pictures you recently posted look like iphone pictures :-(



    This is from someone i dont think i know, who obviously does not know me or he would know why i was using mirrorless, arrorgance. ignorance or just plain nasty not sure which it is, the smiley at the end does not improve it for me.

    Its easy to solve i just block him.

    Somebody really posted that to you?! How absolutely awful! What decent person would have the cheek to be that insensitive, not to mention just plain wrong. You're wrong about one thing also, Mike: the smiley at the end is not a smiley. This person posted a frown (downward turned parenthesis). You were right to block them. Good riddance to bad garbage.

    Don't take what this person said to heart. Your pictures are almost always showstoppers, mirror or no mirror. Shrug it off.

    Sheesh. People.

    Thanks, the trouble is i am on the downhill slide for various reasons but people like him will not stop me, i did look at his flickr page before blocking him, and i will say no more on that.

    The Z 50 is causing problems i need to overcome and i think i will, just not had the light to practice in.

    Got the subject and light for a short while this morning but this is a heavy crop.

    The fact that your Z can maintain that much sharpness and detail with a heavy crop is testamony to what a great bit of kit it is. That's no iPhone, pal. And the fact that you caught focus on a fast moving subject and composed it with a shallow DOF shows your skill as a photog. I'm guessing a certain amount of jealousy went into that cretin's comment.

    I'm sure you'll get the Z's problems sorted out. Your shots with it already look stunning. Onwards!

    The internet is the perfect place for nobody's like this clown to anonymously act in ways they would be afraid to act around people. Pay no attention to asshats like this, they are nothing.

    Thanks, I think one thing the "Gentleman" didn't look at was the high ISOs ime having to use a lot of the time at the moment just to be able to familiarize myself with the camera's workings.

    Makes me sad if someone can't say that he doesn't like the look of a pic or what he dislikes in a proper way.

    The internet is full of trolls. He's clearly one of them and therefore he's not worth your time. Especially when that one image you've posted here is probably better than anything he's ever shot.
