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

jjlmoose: I'm not sure what all the fuss is... the way I read this is Apple will be incorporating an Aperture-like program called Photos in to Yosemite and you will be able to transfer all your Aperture libraries. Sounds like a win-win to me. Are people afraid that if you don't have to pay extra for it that'll be no good? With good RAW support, sounds to me like some Apple users will be less inclined to go with CC and more with frEE.

The fuss comes from experience. Did you see what Apple did with Pages? The new version was not an improvement but a step backwards.

AP Hovasse: I love my "old" RX100 and I'm really looking forward to buying this one. I was an early buyer of the 100 and have really put it through its paces. I love the files, the resolution is so sweet. It's so small it never ever leaves me. I will miss the reach of the 100mm which is itself pretty weak. I hope they've done something about the focus, which sucks for anything with movement. The EVF will be great. I won't have to put on my glasses every time I want to look to see what I'm shooting. I will be happy to give up my Eye-Fi card for quick wifi. I'm really really looking forward to more low-light shooting. I've been really hard on my camera, it's always on the go, I'm not too delicate with it, but these things are solid, so well built and such a fine fine little camera. My DSLRs are gathering dust.

I've found the Eye-fi card be faster than connecting to RX100II

I love the idea and definitely will buy this lens when comes out.

I am just intrigued by Fuji's strategy. X100s $1300, WCL (28mm equiv) $300, new 50mm equiv $300 Total $1900.00

Compare prices and lenses within Fuji cameras and the competition.

Very smart Fuji... very smart

Beautiful camera. Fuji just nailed it. But... is this an OM-D knock off?

This is so nice! Fuji is setting the bar too high in all respects, beautiful cameras with superb image quality and great software support. You got to love it!

A very ugly, expensive, and limited camera. I can't understand how Nikon thought that this camera would be appealing to customers and competitive in the current market.
This is certainly unbelievable.
I left nikon time ago and I don't see myself going back.

Collie Camp: NO FUJI X-PRO 1 or X-E1 !

I am really disappointed. Not to speak about the neverending wait for Aperture 4 looking at all the cool features of the "others" (lenscorrection anyone?). There has been a broad discussion about it on the net, even the fujiguys on twitter said, Apple has all the Info from Fuji needed - but still no support for X-Trans.

I like Aperture, used it for years, but I give up if they just don´t support the most interesting cameras since years...

Thank god that Capture One now has a good support, Silkypix has it, PhotoRAW, RPP and even LR4 (but not perfect, with the next update I guess).

Apple, here is my ULTIMATUM:

Aperture 4 with full X-Trans support till the end of march, or I will give up on Aperture. There you have it. Period.

Wow!! you just made Apple to tremble as a result of physical and emotional disturbance!!

Exciting lens! But we are seeing a trend here that is very unfair for Olympus customers. They practically are saying: -If you want it Black you have to pay more-. I love my camera, I just wish I had bought the silver EM-5 instead of the black version.

MargalitIL: I guess it is a photo of a work by Josiah McElheny - same as the 3rd place in this challenge. If so - the artist deservs the credit and his name shoulf be mentioned

I completely agree with you. I am posting a note! Sorry of the omission.
