"ongoing monthly charge"? Is that sort of like forever and forever?

PC Wheeler: How are they planning to get it to the Moon? At that price it should defray part of the trip.

At least the grip appears to be real (endangered?) wood

I guarantee you won't see that junk lifted to the space station.

Rage Joe: Wunderbar! I finally get the camera I've always craved for. Only if I could get one covered with elephant's foreskin. That would be perfect now.

That's a bit gauche, try rich Corinthian leather. Dems rich people knows their luxuries. Just like Hasselblad know dems rich people.

JEROME NOLAS: Hasselblad will burn in a photographic hell, that's for sure.

The fire was lit when they dumped Zeiss for Fuji and announced coloured cameras.

Even better are the comments on the official Adobe videos telling them to go stuff it.

Abobe's well-known arrogance is astounding.

I just dumped my cable TV. Because every month I was paying and paying for an extra outlet. Year after year. And they had the gaul to jack up the price of the splitter and cable earlier this year. It was paid for in a few months but that was many years ago.

Lets hope the photo magazines smell the stink from the new Adobe outhouse and stop promoting their program in their magazines. Readers should let them know it's time to move on from promoting Adobe to photographers.

Henry M. Hertz: i noticed that on forums more and more adobe people are writing.... making good PR for adobe:

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=showposts;u=367787

"Yes it's official info - I'm an ACP, we speak to the user community on behalf of Adobe but we're not sales reps."

they seem to be pretty desperate to get this through and convince customers.

No kidding. A lot of people have do-do in their pants now, especially that rich NAPP guy.

I see one of the sites that shills for the high end camera industry and Adobe are already saying that it's you're fault, you're not professional enough! Besides what's $20 bucks a month out of the generous public pension I'm paying the site owner? Whatever happened to honesty?

I'm sure if you put a bunch of people together in a video singing Cumbaya Adobe, this will be made to look like the best thing that ever happened to the digital photography consumer for sure. Besides, as they put it, Elements will still be sold! See, you're just not professional enough LOL.

My biggest fear is they will pull this crp with Lightroom next. And I have a lot invested in my database to simply walk away from it like I can with Photoshop.

Why the QC concerns? You always get the best QC possible in the world when the military lets you shoot your bad workers.

What about their disco campaign? This is really old. Hasselbald went nuts when digital came out, they've still not recovered. Peddling red Ferrari cameras to arabs is still a bad sign.

Mr Fartleberry: Krockwell reports the lense is made in China. So why is it so damn expensive?

You're right - the reference to China is now gone. When I read it the page was half under construction and country of manufacture was listed as China. Now there is no country of manufacture, not even Japan.

Tharizdun: Its got super ED glass, which is normally reserved for expensve pro lenses. I guess that is what makes it cost a lot more than the predecessor....

I'll let you in on a secret: "Super-duper" glass does not have copious quantities of gold in them. Did they put a second gold band on the lense barrel?

WT21: Ooh, ooh! LR now supports the Lunar! Yeah!

Strange that Hasselblad are still going thru with the most joked about camera at Photokina. They sure aren't your father's Hasselblad. The solution would be to bring back Victor but that's not an option.
