At straight exchange rate conversions:

Camera = $3350
EVF = $590
Lens Hood = $140
Handgrip = $155
Flash = $420

What a joke.

The icing on the cake here is the recycled garbage NEX 18-55 lens with "HASSELBLAD" laser etched on it.

It seems this is an effort by Canon to be exceedingly "green". They've been recycling/repurposing the same silicon for 4+ years now.

Juck: I'm a canon fan,, but really ,, a slight improvement in live view AF is no justification for launching a new model. DP should have given it a Bronze on principal.

Or maybe Lead or Pewter.

Didn't take too long to copy/paste the T4i review into this one I see! :)

On Nokia EOS rumors surge post (93 comments in total)

If the iPhone had the 41MP PureView camera on it with good software controls, nobody would even buy high-end Android devices.

I have a feeling the 32mm will not be a very good seller, but the 12mm likely will, despite it being the more expensive lens. The 32mm doesn't offer enough performance advantage over native lenses on either platform to justify its price, while the 12mm does.

On Is this the new Leica 'Mini M'? article (370 comments in total)
In reply to:

Raist3d: I am not sure what this camera is bringing to the market. I would have iked to think Leica would have used their lens expertise to come out with a nice set of high quality primes. Of course this is still a rumor but...

Its bringing a red dot and higher price. Very cutting-edge price!! :D

Leica has lost its mind. The X2 isn't selling worth squat at US$2,000 so they decide to make a zoom variant with an exceedingly slow lens for over US$3,000?? I can tell you right now, this thing won't sell hardly at all. If this was built like the old mini cm zoom (35-70, f/3.5-6.5) with a 35mm sensor and a partially collapsing lens, then yeah, it might have a chance at that price. But this thing is enormous and uses an aps-c sensor. If this is it and the lens is permanently fixed, then its a still-born baby.

I hope, for Leica's sake, this is a new SYSTEM camera. Still, that is one gawdawful slow lens even for a kit lens.

This is part 2? I must have missed part 1 altogether. Was it titled "How to justify renting photoshop and never owning it"???

It's "Jraphics Interchange Format". End of Story.

I'm still awaiting the V3 with the Sony 20MP sensor. C'mon, Nikon. Stop using these sub-par Aptina sensors already! Make one model that puts IQ ahead of ridiculous AF-tracking speed.

Is this a product of Malaysia or China too? I mean, I have no problem with that being the case, but it would further highlight the nonsense of the price. If you are gonna save $$$ on labor, then you can't turn around and charge US$900 and look like anything short of a jerk.

For US$900, they oughta throw in a V1 for free with every purchase! ;)

It's about f***ing time.

$900 US??? Holy overpriced lens, batman!!

In reply to:

AngryCorgi: Actually, GIMP is very powerful. The only reason I use PS CS is for the cleaner interface. It's not worth getting bent over a barrel on though. I can always use my old CS2 + GIMP + RPP combo and get what I need. It's not as efficient, but I use this software for my own pleasure, not for creation of revenue from the products. They ought to factor that into their logic. There are a boat-load of people that do not receive financial gain for the use of PS CS nor want to, but do want to (a) keep their skills up at home and (b) like the added flxibililty of PS over PSE. They appear to be ignoring that LARGE group of home users.

It's a shame. The deblur feature was about to get me to plop down another bunch of bills for a new PS too. Oh well.

I admit that! LOL The GIMP is not nearly as well "put together" in the GUI.
