Last night, while doing my daily rounds of photography Web blogs, I cruised over to the Thom Hogan's site to see what he was up to. When I checked in, I was literally shocked to see his latest post, in which he discussed the POSSIBILITY (and I emphasize it was presented as only a possibility, not the probability) of dumping all of his current gear and starting over completely fresh, not excluding the possibility of going entirely mirrorless. He wrote that he had decided nothing and was merely pondering the question, so what did his readers think? What would they do if they were starting anew?
Since I've been asking myself that same question for awhile (but have moved a bit closer than Hogan to an answer for myself, having disposed of my D800 and pre-ordered a Sony A7RII to add to my A6000 as yet one more experiment), today I went over to Thom's site to see if there was any follow-up. Lo and behold, his shocking post was no longer there. I assume he must have thought better about making his soul-searching column so public, where people might misunderstand what he wrote, and so he must have taken it down. Question is, Did any other NRF members see that column? I''m sure I didn't imagine it. It really was there, perhaps for just a short time before being yanked, honest, cross my heart.
