On Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer article (628 comments in total)

Someone's going to get fired for not meeting their 4Q sales projections. And then there's that bit about burning bridges with your customers standing on them.

itchhh: I wish they would do a **serious** update to this program.

I think I just said that.

Like using System 7.5 on a Mac.

And many people deserve what Nikon hands down to them.

I'd rather you tell us how many Hasselblads there are aboard the ISS.

Don't worry, there'll be a lucky red and gold model down the road.

I'd rather they look to the future, not the past with these silly Hasselblad Lunar style boutique cameras.

Unfortunately, today images are worthless. Other than advertising, the black art of capitalism.

InTheMist: It's an amazing, thought-provoking candid portrait.

It would have been a shame if it hadn't been selected.

Nicholas Pitt: have always admired his work but I did a workshop with him a few years back and discovered a whole other side to the man... when he did eventually turn up he was simply a very little nasty man, reducing one participant to tears seemingly just for the fun of it... avoid his workshops at all costs!

So many dullards don't realize the truth behind these old endlessly promoted myths. .

montoniphotography: too much time with the same, McCurry is on the way to be a overrated photographer

The Banksy of the eighties?

It's not like it's not a good photo (you do know why it was used?) but the never-endless promotion makes me puke.

Let's move on, this didn't win the second world war. And there are far better photographers that those that worked for NG.

How many times has Amazon (aka DPR) plugged this old old shot this year?

Get real people.

On Another Hasselblad rebadge or Photoshopped hoax? article (187 comments in total)

Hasselblad lost it when they lost NASA, and Zeiss, and started producing colored cameras. And they're still lost.

Must be Nikon's "homage" to a modern DSLR LOL. Still have to wait several years for the D800 to be updated with GPS and wifi.

Mr Fartleberry: Homage to Noct? What marketing pig hooey. Maybe if it was 1.2 or 1.0. It's a 1.4 lense, nothing to see here.

But they sure are hooked on grabbing two thousand dollars for mid-range primes now. The Vampire is back as Hogan would say.

It's in the PR - I checked. It's also 8 times or more the price of a 50 1.8.

In reply to:

3systermuser: like Thom said it very well in his latest article, this is the most lame product introduction, and this shows us clearly Nikon lacks complete honesty and respect to its long time loyal customers.
I will not buy any more Nikon gear, I will just keep my current D800E but it is and will be my last Nikon, I am done with this fraud business.
I think this is very extremely insulting to us.

I'm not even going to bite on the D800, my D700 does what I need. Fed up buying expensive Nikon cameras every 2 years. Never again.

You all know what to buy for Christmas now don't you? And you expected a D4X, D400, or professional lenses. LOL. Order thru <Amazon>.

I want to believe ... but the fact is no one is abandoning their Canikony lense in any class to use the Sigma. Unless they're a shill like I've seen in the Canadian photo press.

Nothing against Sigma but your past history follows you around. It's just not a simple case of throwing your shittty underwear in the wash with a sheet of Bounce and think you'll come out smelling like .... mountain meadow.
