zigi_S: I don't know what the majority of "photographers" on this site think. But I don't think a photographer has the right to publish a photo from an individual on the internet, without prior explicit permit. When a photo is on the internet, it can't be deleted. The right to a persons privacy ABSOLUTELY TRUMPS any copyright. Did the graduates permit the photographer to publish pictures of them on the internet? I don't think so. So the problem with the watermark is negligible in contrast to a serious trespass in a person's privacy.

Public and private sphere are different things. To graduate does not make you a public person. Holding a public office, does.

Better no laws than totalitarian ones.

They came to power after a catastrophic streak of leftists.

When it's about idiotic laws, I almost always hear about USA, UK or EU. Russia is mostly apart from the gay laws quite free.

oluv: wow 349$ = 399€ for the 14-42! shouldn't it be the other way round?

Just don't buy it. Olympus always overprices their products and later firesales them for nothing. A bunch of morons setting prices in olympus if you ask me. And all japanese companies sell in europe their products for more. And it's not taxes. It's just to offset the subsidizing the american customer.

Hans Bolte: Wonderful photographs by a true artist! I think most of the critics posting here have probably not taken one photo nearly as good as any of hers.

These photos are top notch. I have to figure how to get the same dreamy look.

The slt-a58 is recomended for high iso? All slt cameras are inferior in this compartment for losing a third of light. No matter how good the sensor behind is, it has to work with less light.

On article Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2013) (94 comments in total)

You can get an Olympus e-pl3 with kit lens for 249€ in Europe. A current model the E-PM2 with kit lens for 420€. A fuji x-m1 the most cheap you can get with a kit lens is 799€. I don't see how these cameras are comparable. The fuji just doesn't belong into this group. For that money you can get a canon 60d and a nikon d7000. Cameras certainly not belonging to entry class.

Marty4650: I think Adobe is willing to lose a lot of customers, in order to make a WHOLE LOT more money from their remaining customers.

They simply can't be stupid enough to switch to a a subscription service without running the numbers first. They KNOW they will end up with fewer customers, but they will end up making a whole lot more money by renting software, rather than by selling it.

Sure.... for the high end users, it will make little difference. Because they bought every upgrade, and it works out about the same as paying subscription fees. But I'd wager that MOST of Adobe's past customers would skip an upgrade or two, or three, or more. Because when you buy software, it still keeps working even if it lacks the new features.

With a subscription service EVERY customer must pay for every upgrade, whether they want it or not.

"Because you would be paying less if you bought the subscription for the next three versions worth? You don't like paying less?"

The thing is, he doesn't have to buy any more new versions and his copy will work for ever. Rent your software means that he can't use even old versions. With a bought copy, your software will work always. And it's not as if even CS2 is useless. There is hardly anything new in photoshop. That's why ADOBE tries this scam.

Is it now more clear to you?

The only way I see a subscription would work is if it's only for new features that become yours after a period of renting.

Per Inge Oestmoen: Why should we accept Software-as-a-Service?

If we accept to be tied to a software subscription in order to access and use our own data, soon both the operating system and applications will be entirely server-based and no longer installable locally. In such a scenario, the user will lose all use of the software as soon as the software company's subscription service is inaccesible or discontinues - or if the licensee failsl to pay for forever reason. In other words, in the subscription model the user is forever completely dependent on the software subscription in order to access his or her own data.

We have to demand from all software companies that they create software with perpetual licenses that can legally be used for an unlimited time on compatible hardware. We also have to demand that the software comes in the form of full and unrestricted installation versions that can be backed up and installed at any time and independent from its manufacturer.

Per Inge Oestmoen, Norway

OEM windows versions are similar to rent-a-software license. It can be installed only on a new PC and it dies with it.

Luckily, looks like EU courts don't enforce such practices, because every copy no matter if it's oem, dsp or retail is assumed to be the property of the buyer and can be used as he likes. Ofcourse fair use. This means, in EU oem windows versions are sold as retail versions.

Really nice camera. I wonder if it could get smaller in the size department with a pancake zoom or maybe with a fixed lens.

Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade .
wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.

i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..

Some just like to be "scre*ed" the nikon way. Cough D610.

zigi_S: For anyone making money on video, this sum is chump change. For all the others, you probably didn't fork out 5500$ for the body alone. So you should complain about Nikon Df, that lacks any video for a cool 3000$.

And this camera is more than you bought.

MGJA: This is silver, but Canon 70D is gold. Heh.

Really, I am ever more convinced that dpr just hands those out in order to maximize page reloads as irate fangurls battle it out in the comments. Fine, whatever puts food on their tables is a-ok with me.

"No kidding, these days Canon's APS-C cameras can't even keep up with the image quality of little MFT sensors."

No matter what a score says. My canon apsc camera takes better photos than a 43 and m43 ever did. IQ is not only about sensor noise. Bigger format captures also more detail and colour information.

There is a difference between fixing your product and upgrade.

The upgrade is much cheaper than getting a new camera. Canon has to be congratulated on this one. Not criticized.
