Oh, well if he shoots nothing but Zeiss glass and is a friend of yours
Marc, then everything he writes must be fair and balanced, and 100
percent accurate.

By the way, you might be interested to know that professional
photographers are constantly seeking out the criticism of other
professional photographers not because they want their faces ripped off,
as you so charmingly put it, but because they know that they can be the
worst judges of their own work. ;-)

QWhoZeiss is a long-standing friend of mine.  He is a noted professional
who shoots only Leica and Zeiss glass (well, he does use some
Kilfitt/Zoomar gear, as well, as required) and has done quite well by
it. I spoke with him yesterday but he did not mention his intention to
post his, well, mischevious, note.  His position, though, is that the
photographic worth of a professional must be judged differently than the
work of an amatuer such as myself.

And the thought of professinal photographers judging each others' work
is a bit stimulating!  Imagine the fights -- think of the feeding frenzy
as those who were once close friends tear the skin of the faces of each
other ....
