Ribbit74: Here's my quick summary after playing around with LR6 for 20 minutes on my 13" rMBP. Mainly just looking at performance and not new features yet.

1) Switching between modules is MUCH quicker (Library/Develop)
2) OpenGL acceleration is used, though it's not clear when that's used
3) Exposure and other sliders seem to be as responsive as 5.7, but no faster
4) No noticeable difference in export speed vs. 5.7 (have not tried import yet)
5) Fuji X-Trans RAW rendering is identical to 5.7, still can't handle green detail
6) Presets still work (VSCO, etc), no difference in speed that I can tell
7) CPU usage is high after install... "address detection" is enabled by default and will spend time indexing your library. Face detection is NOT enabled by default. I paused all indexing though to do my performance testing.

"5) Fuji X-Trans RAW rendering is identical to 5.7, still can't handle green detail" :-(

On Fujifilm offers silver X-T1 and firmware update article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

MisterJohnnyT: The news release on the Fuji website: http://www.fujifilmusa.com/press/news/display_news?newsID=880649

...makes no mention of the increased shutter speed being a part of the Firmware update! Looks like the camera I bought ONE MONTH ago is already obsolete! Thanks Fuji !!!

Also, according to that release, the electronic shutter on the Silver edition is only compatible with 3 specific prime lenses.

http://www.fujifilm.com/news/n140910_02.html

*** This functionality will be installed via a firmware update planned for December, 2014, for both the X-T1 Black and the X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition.

In reply to:

crsantin: The ground glass focusing screen is what tipped it off, otherwise I would have believed this. I would buy this camera btw if it were real.

Even with the drop-in cartridges for extended ISO?... :-)

Very funny indeed! :-) As well as many of the comments down here. I just don't understand the lack of sense of humour some people demonstrate...

On Did Sigma design the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm F1.8? article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

goblin: I would have no problems whatsoever to know that Sigma designed my 75mm 1.8. I love Sigma.

Still:

- Olympus 75mm f1.8 lens: Officially announced on February 8, 2012. Prototypes in the works at least months prior to that. Rumored at least a month prior to the official announcement. Don't remember if there were photos leaked or not prior to the official announcement.

- Sigma patent: dated February 3, 2012.
So if the 75mm was their doing, they designed it, tested it, finalized it and ONLY AFTER thought about FILING a patent to protect their concept ?

I find this naive, at the least.

There is a long period of time between patent request and patent atribution... Is that the date of patent request?

cgarrard: All I can say is it helps to understand the joke before you make a comment :).

I almost found the comments from those who don't understand the joke as funny as the comic.

It's easy to understand, as long as you've heard about Google Glass and how it works. Fortunately for Mankind there are geniuses like you that know everything from the cradle...
