simpleshot: The DXO test comes out with the same result as the tests from SLR gear and Digital Picture. They all confirm that:1. The Sigma is sharper than the Otus, except in the corners.2. The Sigma has less vignetting than the Otus.3. The Sigma has less distortion than the Otus.For all of that, the Sigma only costs $950 as opposed to $4000 for the Otus.The Sigma has AF, which makes it a lot more practical.
@MssimoLet's see how it does on the D800/E. Never mind the 50+MP cameras.
Jogger: Its funny that people have no issue with $900 iPads (replaced annually of course), $700 phones, $100/month phone plans, $10 month XBL accounts, $5 daily cups of coffee, $1.5/L of gasoline...
But, paying $10 a month for a software that is part of their business (ie. allows you to make money) is somehow treasonous.
I have a smart phone (unlocked Nexus 5 <$400 after tax and $30/month TMO plan) and a laptop, never saw a need for a tablet. I brew my own coffee at ~50 cents/cup. I ride my bike or take the subway. And yes, paying anything in perpetuity is insulting; it's the point, not the cost.
I believe Corel PhotoPaint has more features than Corel PaintShop Pro.It's part of the Draw Suite, so you'll get an Illustrator alternative as well.I used it 15 years ago before I got Photoshop CS1, it was pretty powerful.
Will retailers be removing all their posters and shelf space for Adobe products since all the money will be going directly to Adobe? Will there be kickbacks to retailers for getting them hooked on the sub, like cell-phone providers?I started using Corel DRAW and Photo-Paint 15 years ago, but Adobe lapped them, here's hoping Corel can come back.
