From Wikipedia: "Originally an extreme left newspaper, it has undergone a number of shifts during the 1980s and 1990s to take the social democrat position... Its editorial stance is currently of centre left."
What else to expect from a socialist newspaper?
forpetessake: What a bunch of hooey. Newspapers, magazines, other publications are BUSINESSES, they make (and should) decisions based on profits from their activities, not because they like or dislike photographers, cameras or iPhones. Oh, yes, I forget, it was a French newspaper. It's not about business, it's all about socialism, where bureaucracy, not the market rules, everybody will have a job, everybody will be told what to do and what not to do, everybody will be poor, except for the ruling bureaucratic class.
" Some journalists aren't in it for the money, they are in it because they believe in what they are doing."Then they are in the wrong place. Let them start a charity, start a party, run for Congress, or make a photography their hobby and earn money in some other way.

Retro in art, vogue, music isn't surprising, because all those areas are highly subjective and volatile. Retro in technology is absurd -- it's an attempt of resurrecting dead evolutionary solutions, which were once restricted by the state of the technology but long have been discarded.
Tis the day when many people are going to cancel their pre-orders.
Spectro: I returned a new (unopened) X-e1 a week and a half ago because I read about the X-e2 rumors with PDAF (the same ones on the x100s, which probably is the same base sony nex sensor with different filter layer). But I am now more interested in the Sony A7, but it is too expensive for me. Can't decide yet.
Sony A7 is worth every extra penny. You'll feel sorry if you go with much lower camera to save a few bucks.
M Jesper: "Improved EVF framerates in low light (60 fps vs 20 fps)"
Hell yes !
Not just 24fps Hollywood Movie smooth, not just 48fps The Hobbit smooth, but soap opera or home-video smooth ! ;)
The EVF on X-E1 was practically unusable in low light due to lag, it remains to be seen if they sufficiently improved it.
Two important things are still missing: a good grip and a tilting LCD.
The chart that shows equivalent apertures is a great comparison tool. It would be even better if it accounted for light loss in the lenses, showing t-stop lines in addition to f-stop.
M0P03: I wonder why Allison compares GM1 and Q7 & RX100? Direct rival is Sony NEX-5R (T) 16-50 kit.I wonder why Panasonic marketologs have cut a grip to make body more slim, if thickest part is a lens, not a grip.
Because an APS-C sensor is much larger and NEX-5R is in different category. It's like asking why didn't they compare it to an FF camera.The question for GM1 potential buyers is how much they lose compared to similar m4/3 systems.
Boerseuntjie: There is just two things that is keeping me from getting these camera's and it's big deal for me, no silent shutter mode and IBIS, I will praise Sony for their engineering and these cameras look amazing but I will stick with NEX-6 for now.If these cameras had IBIS they would have been killer.
Yeah? And NEX6 you stuck with, of course, has silent shutter and IBIS :-) If those (quite overrated) features are so important I would expect a person to jump to Olympus camp.
reginalddwight: With Sony's latest FF MILCs, we may be seeing the beginning of the end of DSLRs as products for mass consumption.
Nikon and Canon should take heed.
Sooner or later Canikon will have to abandon their DSLR cash cow. They might not be ready to do it just yet. I would expect them to come up with FF DSLRs in 100D body priced much lower than Sony.
Time to prepare for Newson's Leica fire sale. If Pentax is any indicator it takes a company about a year to realize nobody is going to buy that cr@ppy design and start selling it for pennies.
DSPographer: This AA method was discussed almost five years ago in the forums here:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/30005672
Yep, the idea in the public domain, nobody can patent it. But Ricoh may have patented something similar but distinctly different. And as it was mentioned before, the motion blur doesn't have the same characteristics as the AA filter.
It's pretty obvious that motion blur doesn't emulate low-pass filter. Here is a simple counter example: what would be the result of 2*Nyquist output from both?
Only extreme pixel peeping sets them apart and even then impossible to say which one is better.
That also means if they can grow (or etch) micro-fibers right on the silicon, they can create sensors corrected for curvature and also improve wide angle sensor performance.
If they do manage to make this system with millions fibers that would solve the curvature problem and redefine the way lenses are designed.
If that is a solution, then what is the problem?
DavidKennard: Not sure why you'd upload a RAW file to Gplus?
Even if people are uploading RAW files, surely extracting the embedded JPEG would be good enough for web size sharing, and give a result similar to an out of camera JPEG? Or do not all RAWs include embedded JPEGs?
Even if somebody wants to use Google simply for storage, there is nothing preventing people to store much smaller jpeg for viewing.
