steelhead3: The subscription service has made Adobe irrelevant.
So you use the software -but it's irrelevant? :)
teddoman: Don't know if databases are any better now, but I hated using photo databases because if I moved a file in Windows, the database had to be rebuilt. So I love the idea of a non-database RAW editor.
It's far clumsier moving files in Lightroom.
Eric Hensel: "world’s fastest, most flexible, and easiest-to-use RAW processor and photo editor on the market "A tall order, right out of the gate.I've used Lightroom for 4 years -it works well, but the interface and file-handling are beyond inscrutable for me. I'm trying Capture1 and having interface issues there, though it may be just lack of familiarity.Let's see how this new one looks.
I'm not that precious about my settings, and am not a pro. It's a consideration, but not a deal-breaker for me.

wri7913: I wonder how many of the Sonikon fanboys could shoot without "chimping" their screen every shot.
Back in the days of film, you had to know how to make a photograph using the fundamentals of Photography. You had to think through each shot and imagine how it would look or know how it would look based on your settings.
Today its pixel peepers galore, chasing after the largest megapixel (while either not printing or small prints under 11x14) while preening about their sonikon gear. LOL
I can't believe people think these "back in the day" pastiches pass for genuine arguments...as if Ansel Adams wouldn't have jumped on a modern Hasselblad with a nice rear screen. Pffft...
princecody: When is the Leica without a lens coming out? I'll Pay double ☺️
ps: Leica Free T-shirt hopefully included 😉
"Ya know for a hundred years most photos were shot without being able to preview the result as it was seen by the film?"In the 16th century they ground their own paints -which were very limited in color...because they had to.How far do you wish to take your false equivalence?
jhinkey: DPR - Unfortunately the image is of the A7R which I don't think is the target of the firmware . . .
Sure looks like the II to me...the RII isn't marked on the front. The control-wheel tells the tale.
Leonp: (About 8K prints, or stills) Of course, in real life this is not going to happen. If I stop my HD television signal, I don't see a sharp 1080x1920 pizel image. Really far from that. So I don't expect 4K of 8K video to be uncompressed. Should I?
New information for me -thanks to both of you...
Boissez: Most of those are remarkable, I especially find the Curse of Coal and the tibetan nomads interesting. All in all, a great selection.
Also, while some of these shots are troubling, reading some of the empathy-deficient posts in the comments is even more troubling...
Seems to me the world's big enough to handle both.
Debankur Mukherjee: MF always wins over AF...............
When you start a post with an insult -there's no point in finishing.
Terrific group of compelling shots.
trungtran: If only DSLRs had apps, this could be done easily in software to fine tune a lens to body.
The app could guide the process with prompts and save the settings directly into the camera.
It would work as simply racking through the different focal lengths in a zoom and having targets at different distances.
Start at the wide end, focus on minimum distance. Camera would be in phase detect, get focus. Switch over to sensor detect get focus, calculate difference. Save setting in camera database.
Next would be to move target further away, repeat the process until you get to infinity, then move to the next focal length. It would be a tedious process but if you wanted ultimate accuracy these settings need to be done.
Each zoom lens could have fine tuning for up to 5 focal lengths and 5 distances. 25 checks, can be possibly done in 1 to 2 hours.
Your camera has a computer in it -I'll be happy when it is better utilised
thxbb12: AF calibration: this is the very reason I switched to mirrorless about 3 years ago. I'm so glad I did.Eventhough Nikon's implementation is very useful, it's still suffering from many downsides. The real fix is to achieve AF on the sensor. There is really no way around it, no matter how much duct tape we put around it ;-)
Choice is good. "poor EVF experience in low light and contrasty light and poor battery life."Both complete non-issues in my experience."It's a predictable and sensible advancement"... It is a kludge.Carry on.
Frank C.: AF module....mirror.. over complicate cameras.. and are destined for the dust bin, as technology progresses sensors and EVFs will get so good they will provide the answers to everything, just look at how advanced cpus and gpus have gotten over time. So now we have Nikon trying to fix a limitation with what in reality is another limitation, they should try and concentrate on technology instead like Sony is doing
features are different from complications due to obsolete technology ;)I fully expect to see cameras, and software become less complicated, from a user standpoint. Artificial Intelligence will let them learn how you work, and adjust on the fly. User-interfaces are still in the stone-age.
You think Nikon created this kludge merely because "Mirrorless users love to overstate this problem"?
rsf3127: It seems that the factory had no IBIS.
"Some people are just too sensitive to be on the web."Walk a mile in their shoes.
I don't need this...so neither do you.
Retro1976: I don't know why there is so much hype over the Sony A series bodies and lenses. Look at these samples: The rich color, skin tones, contrast and detail - the images are lovely, superb. Sony doesn't come close to Canon in this regard, and yet time and time again people talk about the superiority of Sony sensors, yet my eyes don't see it.
photogecko: Did they fix the shadow banding? Or how about the price?
The lenses will hold value well, modern Leica cameras will become fancy doorstops.
