comment Nice cameras for B/W photography?
One note to add to this, is that the Sigma RAW processing software also has a dedicated Monochrome conversion path that is different than the color path - where you can use a color wheel to select the B&W mix you use between the different layers, rather than just using one output color channel after conversion. On the Leica M you cannot apply a digital color filter in post-processing since there was no color data to start with.

comment How do I find a point-and-shoot camera specifically for bokeh / a very shallow depth of field?
The top one is. All lenses with good bokeh have ranges where the bokeh is not so good, as in the second photo...

comment Besides several Pentax DSLRs, what cameras are rated for operation below 0 °C (32 °F)?
The same is true in Colorado, USA - which is why I answered the way I did, that pretty much any camera will work below freezing.

Sure, but in the end isn't it more useful to know what actually works rather than what the ratings say? Otherwise you are limiting what equipment you can buy based on an overly conservative estimate. Just because some camera makers do not test at lower temperatures does not mean it will not work - and there is no reason to think Pentax is doing anything in building lenses or cameras that much differently than any other camera maker.

comment How do Micro 4/3s cameras compare with DSLR cameras?
It's not just about the sensor though. A full frame camera gives you a shallower depth of field. FF have artistic advantages that are literally impossible physically for a smaller sensor to match (which is why medium format survives)

But he said he was buying it for the family, not himself. As such I felt like I had to give him the answer that was best for the family, not himself... or otherwise he will be the only one using the camera.

comment How to correct exposure locally with Apple Aperture?
I dislike this answer because there are in fact several simple ways to get this effect, see the other answers. It's fine to note that Lightroom can do this also but it is misleading to claim that Aperture cannot.

comment Why invest in high end large- and medium-format digital cameras?
There are smaller sensors that produce great micro-contrast. The Foveon sensor produces excellent micro-contrast in images, which has been a consistent point in many reviews of cameras like the Sigma DP-3M.
