Vendor took my boss and me to lunch last Thursday. That's one thing I will miss about this job.

The corners of that kit lens suck. Otherwise it shares a similar sensor to the d3300 or d5300.

I had this same mentality when I used to go to all-you-can-eat buffets and just get loaded.
I also used to think McDonalds was an acceptable eatery for human beings.
At some point I realized I'd rather have 2 bites of something that blew my mind than 5 mediocre pies or some watered down ice cream. Or 1 shot of espresso vs 2 gallons of coca cola

^ This.

A really well-assembled tasting menu, by a good chef, is damn near a life changing experience. Not to mention that fifteen plates of 2-3 bites each is more filling than you might expect from looking at just one of them.

But when you have a half once of something amazing on your plate, well, you savor it deeply rather than just tossing forkfulls of it into your pie-hole, and you linger upon the experience after it is complete.



This isn't to say, of course, that you can't take a tiny amount of shitty food and present it all fancy-like on a big plate.

So go book your own dinner at the French Laundry, there's a reason Anthony Bourdain is quoted saying: [The French Laundry is] the best restaurant in the world, period
