Adobe will join the ranks of the backstabbing bottom feeders like telecom service providers. Monthly charging systems are numbing, bloodsucking rackets that should be completely revamped or abolished completely.

This trend of 'publishing' how-to books (for nearly every micro-update) for digital photography is quite the scam. There's more than enough free or nearly free training and instruction online to dive into these applications. If you want serious in-depth training, use a video training series (as others have mentioned).

Sorry, my dog died this afternoon and I'm taking it out on the world.

On Nikon D4 overview article (844 comments in total)

I would very much like to see high quality examples of the dynamic range from this new sensor. ISO a zillion is fine, but what about the shadow and highlight situation, and ISO 50, talk to me. It would be nice to see a solid zone system type comparison between the D3's, D700, this one and the newest Canon - am I asking to much? For 6K Nikon should provide anything we want. Also sharpness, don't like the softness with most AA filters. Overall though, the specs are quite nice.

Hey, what happened to the D800?

Ugh, all that hype for a tiny sensor and oversized lenses.
What a waste of time, resources and energy.
They should have followed Fuji's X100 lead,
and pulled out an epic Nikon S-100 digital 'rangefinder'.

And by the way, D800 anytime this year?!
