Cameron R Hood: Wonder who they stole this design from?

They don't just steal from Apple, and I don't work for them. So far, they have stolen designs from a large number of companies; it's their main way of doing business; and I quote, from Fortune Magazine's website:
"According to various court records and people who have worked with Samsung, ignoring competitors' patents is not uncommon for the Korean company. And once it's caught it launches into the same sort of tactics used in the Apple case: countersue, delay, lose, delay, appeal, and then, when defeat is approaching, settle. "They never met a patent they didn't think they might like to use, no matter who it belongs to," says Sam Baxter, a patent lawyer who once handled a case for Samsung. "I represented [the Swedish telecommunications company] Ericsson, and they couldn't lie if their lives depended on it, and I represented Samsung and they couldn't tell the truth if their lives depended on it." -- Vanity Fair: The Great Smartphone War."

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (489 comments in total)

This would be a PHENOMENAL review if it wasn't of the movie mode...Pentax has to seriously address this. GREAT cameras, and their lenses have always been stellar.

Another BONEHEAD move by a company that has lost it's way...they are going to have to retract all this, or perish...loosing customers and loyal followers by the thousands every time they bring out something new.

Gorgeous. Can't wait to see some images from it. Probably the best zoom lens ever.

The rest of you: quit your WHINING!

They will sell about a dozen of these...maybe. Completely ridiculous, pretentious, and delusional.

It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that the V2 is the ugliest camera of all time...couldn't be that, no...must be market conditions...yeah, that's it...

Kodachrome200: This is why I love these new chinese lighting companies. i cant believe they want 200 bux for this. I just bought a similar thing for $25. I have been in photography for a long time and its great to buy 50 dollar soft boxes and the like

Yeah, copyright infringement and corporate theft are wonderful things...the Samsung corporation LIVES off it...imagine all the money they save on R&D when they can just STEAL stuff...it's fantastic...the 'American' way...let freedom reign, etc.

I hate to break it to you, Nikon, but it's not selling because IT'S THE UGLIEST CAMERA OF ALL TIME!

Oh, duh, the ad right above my post...$399.00.

On DPReview launches GearShop article (327 comments in total)

You carry Pentax cameras, sort of, but you are NOT listing their lenses in the 'Brand' section, but then 6 K mounts come up under 'list by type', then actually about 50 Sigma lenses show up, and only 1 actual Pentax lens, the 18-270, and it says out of stock.

I think your database is screwed.

Cheers,
Cameron

On Just posted: Our Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens review article (81 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: Gold award for the slow focusing f/2.8 non-stabilized fixed FL weighing as much as 50/1.8? It's small size would be useful on SL1, but its FL (64mm eq - neither normal nor portrait) is not. It's FL is not bad for FF, but heavy vignetting makes it f/3.5 and slower for half of the frame, and it is not tele for such heavy vignetting to be ignored. Fail.

The Pentax isn't stabilized either, but then we have stabilization built into the body, so we don't have to buy it with each lens.

Cameron

Wonder if THIS front element is held on with double-sided tape? I will NEVER buy anything from this company, and I won't let the photographic community forget the foundation on which they built this company.
