Osa25: Anyone releasing these kind of products in 2015 should at least attempt for some sort of aesthetic appeal. Form and function and are not separate poles.

Well, some heavily-attempt with million spent at form and still come up with something like a SL (Type 601), so...

Gesture: Can't anyone figure out how to simplify the DSLR interface. Sadly, all OEMs are using comparable sub-subassemblies, locking them into archaic designs.

Sony E mount covers a lot of offers.
The A7-line cameras are as full of dials and as complicated as any DSLR and, still, they are a huge commercial success.

Yes, "a confirmed intended product" in 2014, "Coming in 2015", that will show up (?) in 2016.

As far as commercial deployment goes, it only beats the Honda Jet.

Myself, not being a Pentax user and having first heard of their FF proposal so long ago, I honestly thought this piece was about a SECOND model.

My original comment was "tongue-in-cheek", obviously, but, more seriously now:

That seems like a completely finished product. You guys should start questioning yourselves (...and good journalists should start questioning Pentax...) about the reason(s) for the consecutive delays.

No. A fresh one about the snail-slow deployment of this product.

Sure...If they still know what a DSLR is by then...

Ah, I get it...
Instead of improving DR on their cameras, Canon will just keep increasing the number of ink cartridges in their printers.
Smart move.

To those of you who, while loving actual photography (...not simply the gear...), say this is not worthy, I suggest:

Press "pause" in your photography-education personal device, wind-back to those points in your life where they should have paid attention and engaged to a deeper level, reevaluate and reabsorb those key-points in time and fast-forward back here.

You will then go: "Ah!...I see it now..."

On article Adobe issues Lightroom 6.2 apology and update (229 comments in total)

6.2.1 has not "solved the problem".

Actually, in my case, the problems started precisely with 6.2.1.

Everything is extremely sluggish and a simple export of a Tiff-16 bit file takes 50 seconds (!)

I can rollback to 6.1 but, then and since the installation is made from outside the app manager, the system, while still displaying the installed version as a CC one under "system info" , will act if it is a prepetual license copy (i.e. the Dehaze function will not be available)

What a mess...

Brandon,

This article and the associated comments are NOT Canon related. They are SONY related.

I will now cater for your so pressing need, so that you may sleep cozy-tight this coming night, head resting against your embroidered "SONY" pillow:

Canon has worse DR than Sony and, depending on circumstances, this can be as problematic as induced artifacts by Raw compression.

Now, are you satisfied with this statement? If you need a signed and certified statement, please PM me.

Mr Brendon,

I've SEEN IT !...are you implying DPR fabricated the so-simple-to-get sample?

Intelligent reasoning is:

1. It exists - because it has been shown, right here on DPR, and Sony is addressing it.

2. It may be detrimental to work flow - because, not knowing where it is and not clearly showing in regular viewing, it implies that any significant file with high-contrast content has to be inspected at 100%.

3. That it does not bother YOU and you claim be a professional is only indirectly relevant - because it only proves that you're willing to let pass to your clients a file that might contain a significant artifact, which might cause them problems later on.

...Free and intelligent enough, Mr. Brendon?

Firstly, your initially disguised but now full blatant attempts to turn a fact (...one that is even about to be corrected by the manufacturer, mind you...) into a brand confrontation is sadly tale-telling and certainly out of the scope of the kind of thing I am interested in: Free-thinking, intelligent reasoning.

Secondly, the DPR shot shows what might happen. A professional either checks for it on the work he is selling or he doesn't. Sloppiness exists in every trade.

Lastly, I would recommend you contact Sony on the subject and tell them to not do what they're about to do because the problem does not exist.

That you're failing to see how a professional or an advanced user might be forced to inspect every single commercial file containing high contrast border renderings says a lot about the type of usage you do but it does not curtail the problem.

That you and many others are failing to see how this announced firmware move by Sony is, all by itself, the absolute certified acknowledgment that this WAS a problem that had to be addressed is just an anthem to irrational thinking.

I don't know if your fallacy-play mixing a problem that, while existing, "does-not-show" vs a problem that, while also existing ,"does-show" is intentional or not.

...probably just the brand-fan-boyism in you struggling to get out under disguise.

In any case, again, I call your attention to the fact that, to show the potential problem of Sony's treatment of Raw, DPR only had to point a camera out of their offices windows, to the Seattle skyline, and include an high contrast item over a dark area (a crescent moon) and, immediately, they managed to illustrate it.

This was written by Jason Lanier, an Sony Artisan back in 2013, regarding shooting Raw:

"if you are not shooting for money, feel free to shoot in whatever mode you’d like, Raw or jpeg. If you are accepting money to shoot for a client, you have a responsibility to provide them with the best product possible."

Are you telling us that, now, he should forsake his responsibility to provide clients with the best product possible by not inspecting all his commercial files, searching for the kind of problems shown in that moon, on that late afternoon Space Needle shot, as shown in the DPR article?

Are you saying your requirements are the same as a paid professional?

Are you suggesting they should just let go and NOT inspect the files for artifacts?

Stop doing this.

The new Sony A7 cameras are excellent products that will now become even better with the firmware update and can stand on their own without the need to fan-burying of the few limitations they might have.

Tons o Glass 0 Class: Thanks for the band-aid, Sony. Here's to hoping this trickles down to models more in my price range. Soon.

...errr...as a metaphor the "band-aid" is not applicable.
It's more like the removal of a band-aid that had no injury under it in the first place.
