Jogger: The 12-40 was shown to be all plastic inside with a thin metal casing... pretty sneaky if you ask me. The best built m43 lens so far is the Sigma made 75/1.8.. amazing internals.
Jogger, once a Micro forum troll, always a troll....
Jogger: This is the type of review that I would expect DigitalRev to put out.. the purposely, out of left field, hipster, trying too hard to be different approach to a non-review.. in order to mask lack of competence and indifference to the camera under review.
+2. Some things never change.
All THREE lenses of the system. Wow.....what a "committment" ;)
AbrasiveReducer: First, I look for a camera with a gold award. That doesn't narrow things down much so then I see what Ken Rockwell recommends and buy something else.
Great stuff. Problem is, what's he going to come up with 6 months from now, and will they get bored with the A7 as fast as they have the NEX system?
They start and drop camera systems faster than Johnny Carson and Richard Pryor did wives.
Docmartin: No doubt, the EM-1 is a great camera! However, for those (like me) who want to continue working with the gorgeous FT Pro lenses, the EM-1 will still no replacement for the outdated E-5. I truly believe that FT lenses cannot be used on ANY MFT body without serious IQ loss until a better adapter than the current MMF2/3 is available. The material/build-quality of the MMF3 will for sure cause misalignment, flex and movement. Just have a look at Roger Cicala's findings and their discussion here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3553373
Enjoy your E-5....forever, literally. You might want to buy 2-3 more.
StevenMajor: Why the square lens hood (on the camera on the DPR opening page)?
That not the E-M1. Look again.
l_d_allan: I got an official-looking warning email from mail.adobesystems.com, which seems suspicious. Phishing?
I would have expected that the email would have come from adobe.com
If you are affected, you'll get a real letter in the mail like i did.
Glad he liked the experience. I would not.
Don't use Facebook....ever. Why anyone would waste their life spilling their thoughts, lives and pictures on Facebook is a mystery to me.
David Dahlstrom: They still don't get it. I'm fine with a renting *option*; its actually a nice and cost-effective option to have; but I cannot rent. It has nothing to do with price. It has to do with the fact that this is a revokable license.
When I create images, I need to be able to edit them later. If at some point in the future I need to switch to another product (because Adobe went away, or another product now suits my needs better), I am bound to continue to pay Adobe for the continued right to edit my own images made while I was renting. This is because the moment I stop paying, my license to use the Photoshop version to create those images is revoked. And, of course, if Adobe goes away nobody gets to edit their images anymore--especially if your saved images include any proprietary features of the Photoshop version you created the images in. Pros beware--and don't say you weren't warned.
Wake up. Lightroom is in this new $9.99 model. You really think Lightroom 6 is going to remain stand alone? Going, going, gone.
So, I guess those of us who bit at CC as a standalone app for 12 months at $9.99 cannot take advantage of this and will be raised in price after a year?
Ask me if I really give a rat's rear who designed it....
It's a great lens.
You share everything else with Facebook. Might as well send them your photos too.
Camera maker that is primarily interested in selling DSLR's. This was never going to be a system they would fully dedicate themselves to, and the result is fairly predictable. Mirrorless is not what Nikon is, and making the sensor even smaller than the competition isn't exactly helping.
Where's the phone?.....
lbuclk=: Wait until the first CC outage occurs at a critical time when you need it, it may last 30min.,3hrs or longer, it will not happen often, but will they refund your money on a prorated basis for your loss of productivity time? nope.
Once you have Photoshop CC on your machine, as long as you have all your work on your computer the only power outage that'll keep you from getting at it would be at your own home, in which case you'll have more things to worry about than not having access to Photoshop....
Photoshop CC sits on your computer just like CS6.
jm67: So, there are three camps here. First are the pros who need photoshop and have no choice but to submit to the cloud and suck it up (the cost). Then there are the small pros who will use what they have and see what the future holds (continue using what they have, submit or find an alternative). Then there are the hobbyists who will likely say goodbye to Adobe. Only those in category one will keep Adobe in business and time will tell how many will join, how many will stay and whether or not they too will find alternatives in the future. Sadly I think there will be enough subscribers that Adobe will never do an about face.
Adobe are the only ones making software to the level of Photoshop. Having tried several others (purchased DxO Optics Pro 8 Standard) and reviewing the features of many more, I see nothing else being competitive with Photoshop, if you really need Photoshop and all it has to offer. There is no option I see that is a step up or better. Just different.
Nothing today, not even Photoshop CS6, will be all that viable a product in 10 years. XP? Nah.
Gregm61: Panasonic definitely needed to be doing something. Their sensors s....., well....they're not good.
The sensors they were giving to Olympus are more than just a little off the Sony sensors after comparing my E-P3 images to those from the E-M5.
Not even close is a better way of putting it.
