On Flickr launches image marketplace initiative post (33 comments in total)

I use to contribute to the Flickr collection with Getty.
Getty has recently kill that venture with Flickr and all the contributors of that venture were migrated to Getty Images Moment. so your info is wrong there is no ventures between Flickr and Getty anymore.
Here is the official letter Getty send me and it clearly explains that they are no longer working with Flickr.

Today we are announcing that we provided notice to terminate our existing agreement with Flickr. Our original agreement reached its end, and while we continue to be open to working with Yahoo!/Flickr, we have not agreed to a new agreement at this time.

peevee you sound like a commie, we all know Merica and the Ruskies took German scientist after the war and developed their tech from stolen intellect, yes the Chinese were intelligent people 500 years ago but under communist rule smart people were usually killed because dump people don't ask questions ;)

George Veltchev: Well .... I didn't noticed that the Germans lost the damn war ...

Who cares about the American taxpayer...LOL, they beat Nazi Germany but let the Russian rape pillage and destroy European culture and Democracy so if you ask me "MERICA" did not win at all, they half ass everything.

Russians and Chinese only know how to copy, the Zorki was made from stolen German equipment and intellect

SantaFeBill: What does the 'D.R.P.'under 'Leica' stand for?

It stands for Deutsches Reichspatent and was changed to D.B.R Deutsches Bundespatent..."Federal German Patent" after the fall of the Third Reich

On Sony SLT-A77 II First Impressions Review preview (610 comments in total)
In reply to:

Abuelo Paul: Having owned my A77 for 18months, and fired off almost 30000 frames, I won't be upgrading yet. There appear to be very few benefits in this markII version.
My main criticisms of the A77 are:
Poor high ISO results
Constant problems with sensor spots after changing lenses
Poor after sales service ( lost the rubber eyepiece and can't get a replacement)
But on the plus side:
Easy to use
superb results
EVF previews the shot
Minolta glass compatibility
All in all why change when I'm happy with what I've got. I had the EOS 500D before.

I'm sure if you contact Sony in EU and order the part they will be willing to help

On Sony a6000 Review preview (717 comments in total)
In reply to:

steelhead3: I guess the reviewer was not familiar with the Sony lens line up "(there's no real portrait prime"; what is the 50 1.8? The ZA Emont 55 1.8 is also available.

E-mount has the Sony 35mm F1.8 OSS = 52mm or the Zeiss 32mm F1.8 Touit = 48mm, they would work just fine as a portrait prime, IMO not to mention the Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS = 75mm or the new Zeiss 50mm F2.8 Touit =75mm

In reply to:

BigPhoto: Broken record... We don't like the clickless control wheel. So we're going to beat that drum over and over again and call it distancing and inert. The nature of highly subjective reviews.

If this camera had fixed the clickless control wheel then Richard would have liked two Sony Cameras this summer and we could not handle that ;) I was shocked when he said he enjoyed using the Sony a6000

Babka08: I imagine Canon GX team have an uncomfortable pit in their stomach right now. The fast lens is an amazing achievement. The slow long end of the MKI has always been a bane. And an evf... This is the perfect fit between a cell phone and a dslr.

viking79: Pop up viewfinder is nice, but how does one hold onto that camera? It looks like it has no comfortable way to hold it.

viking79, You are just jealous Samesong did not copy this... "well yet".
You can buy a stick on grip for the front, they have been available for the RX100 for years now.
