On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (425 comments in total)

I've used them both for years, Aperture for storage/organization and basic edits, and Lightroom for heavier RAW processing. I'm sad to see Aperture go, but the next Photos app should be enough to do the same for me.

My only concern is this gives more leverage to Adobe, who I really hope doesn't make Lightroom a BS subscription service like they're done Photoshop. If it goes that direction, I'll be done with Adobe all together.

Guess I'm also bummed that this probably means we won't ever get Raw support for my new EM-10 in Aperture either...

On Adobe Camera Raw 8.4 and Lightroom 5.4 now available article (70 comments in total)

I'm currently using Lightroom 4.4 with ACR 7.4. I just ordered an Olympus OMD EM10, so do I have to upgrade/purchase LR 5.4 now to be able to view/import the Oly's Raw files to work? Or is there another update to LR 4 that will work?

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (669 comments in total)
In reply to:

audiobomber: DPR needs to change their dynamic range measurements. The current system favours manufacturers who apply heavy tone curves to boost jpeg DR. You can't compare DPR measurements fairly between say an Olympus EM-1 or Canon 70D vs. a Nikon D7100 or Pentax K-5 II, because the first two manipulate the tone curve, and DPR measurements hide the manipulation.

DXOMark results are the only accurate measure of dynamic range, and DPR staff know it. What they are showing as DR on this site is deceiptful. At least report on both, especially since DXO is now affiliated, and proper (accurate) raw results are readily available.

I agree, and was surprised looking at DPR's charts showing the D7100 having wider Dynamic Range than my D600. Also seems to favor this 70D in the highlights. No way that's correct. I'll believe DxO's charts first. DPR's is oddly skewed, and by judging from many of the comments here, readers know it...

Why on earth would anyone pay almost $1300 more than the 50 1.4 for this lens? Seriously.
