On SanDisk introduces first CFast 2.0 memory card article (58 comments in total)

Long live CF!

While the State of the Art here certainly isn't affordable or needed by most users, the development of the media means its still a viable technology - a good thing for all current CF users.

When a technology becomes obsolete - the availability suffers & prices seriously increase.

Cheers.

On Sony QX100 preview (160 comments in total)

Ah, just noticed ... NO RAW (RAW+JPG) - (which, I just checked & the RX100 II does have) ... too bad!

Micro-SD is a bit of a shame too, though somewhat understandable given the package size ...

Cheers.

I'm seriously liking this concept.

Too bad though ... there's no SONY dealers nearby likely to offer these super flexible cameras ... & too bad too that SONY has their MSRP mindset.

Still ... I like the possibilities ...

Cheers.

This acquisition has REAL potential - I like it.

Hopefully MS can secure some truly Visionary Leadership at the top (Ford, Gates, Jobs, Ellison, etc) ... Capable of Executing on the first go-about.

Good time too, as Apple's "Play it Safe" & "CYA" approach to "leadership" (sic) - is definitely leaving room for them to be surpassed ...

Cheers.

I'm sure the decision makers (pulling-down the BIG $$$) are just trying too keep the ol' dog (& their FAT paydays) alive as long as possible ... LOL.

If you can't export the middle-class, non-management jobs to the 3rd world - where the oppressed work for near slave wages - Just shut um' down.

My sincerest condolences to the Pro-photojournalists who lost their livelihood.

Photojournalism is one of the MOST important components of a democratic & free society.

Freedom ... we hardly knew ye ...

lol.

I had a chance to use one & it's amazing.

If one can (1) afford it (I can't), & (2) isn't intimidated by using a camera system this expensive (I was), & (3) can appreciate what it offers (I do) - go for it.

Personally, I think it was a mistake for Leica to invest the resources they must have into a system this limited in it's appeal & affordability. Still, it is very, very impressive.

Tokina's sure getting a lot of mileage out of their original & excellent - 12-24mm f4.0 - DX sensor designed lens.

Good for them!

12mm f2.0 = a nice, fast WA lens.

Too bad that Oly requires a "kit lens" purchase with most of their 43 bodys.

That's so amature time.

uck.

On Olympus launches VF-3 and announces E-PL3 US pricing article (55 comments in total)

Why no "Body only" option?

Requiring that a kit lens be purchased, every time - with a removable lens system camera - is insane.

So, I'll pass.
