On US Judge rules for Eggleston in dispute with collector news story (300 comments in total)

I agree that it is somewhat dishonest (maybe outright dishonest?) to reprint the same image after having announced a limited edition. However, the original limited edition was a 'real' photographic process and the inkjet limited edition is a photo-mechanical process. Books are also photo-mechanical reproductions and having the same image reproduced many times in multiple editions of books does not dilute the value of the original limited edition, it increases it as far as I'm aware. If in this specific case only two inkjet prints were made and sold for that high amount, that would probably increase the value of the original limited edition. If they were to make 10 more limited editions in different media that would definitely decrease the value of the original limited edition.

JLRX: So the only thing that Nikon has to do is to market a couple of leaf shutter lenses that synch at 1/1500 or 1/2000 and the 'advantage" of the S2 is gone. I vote for a 28/35mm, 50mm or 85/105mm, for all I care they can be f/2.8 but very sharp at f/5.6.

Or even make an adapter that can take MF lenses and use their built in leaf shutters with AF (same as the S2).

On Pentax launches delayed 25mm F4 wide angle lens for 645D news story (31 comments in total)

Pentax should make a couple of leaf shutter lenses, like they had in the past.
A flash sync-speed of 1/125 seems very low compared with the competition, 1/800 for Hasselblad or Leica and 1/1600 for PhaseOne/Mamiya.
Apart from that... I think it's a great system.
