AbrasiveReducer: Not sure I see the need if the filters are in brass mounts. Aluminum does jam but that's because it's not brass. Still, this seems like a good idea, and if it catches on all filters will soon have knurled rings.
For what it's worth, I've scratched the good quality UV filter on my primary lens. Better the $80 filter than the $550 lens.... (I still don't know how that happened, though.)
Interesting review, clear sense of 'likes and dislikes'.
rb59020: Apple A7 Chip in iPhone 5S is Made by Samsung: Chipworks
Did Apple ever force through that 10 cent a day raise for their employees in China?
One more thought: I think the actual Samsung chip foundry for This Chip is in Austin, TX.
I sure wish this went down to 15mm. I used to have a Canon 17-85, and now have the 15-85. I find I shoot a lot at 17-22mm.
I've been using GraphicConverter on the Mac (now a complete photo/image manipulation program) for almost 20 years. (http://www.lemkesoft.de)
Min Focusing: 30 cm/11.8"
That's an unusual location... I like it, because you can't see anything of modern Rome. It looks like a location out in the country.
Mr Fartleberry: That's right, no longer works with the popular Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I for one am not turning my photo desktop into a phone so I'm glad I abandoned Aperture and switched to Lightroom when 3 came out.
Now that the 30" is gone, the 17" laptop looks dead, along with the Mac Pro you have to wonder if Apple are still in the graphics business.
I'm not going back to running PS and pallets on a 15" laptop screen no matter how many magnifying glasses you're going to need to see your work.
Actually, I prefer SL to Lion, but Lion has a must-have feature for me (full disk encryption.) I've learned to live with it. But I think overall Apple's moving in the wrong direction by trying to make everything look like an iOS device. Maybe it's because I've been using computers for 35 years, but I don't mind dealing with the file system as the primary focus of the computer.
Given what ACD did with Canvas (produced crappy/buggy updates, then ignored it, and finally killed it) for the Mac, I wouldn't trust them on any Mac product.
I guess '82mm is the new 77mm' (largest filter size...) :-)
What's the filter size? 77mm?
When it asks how much time "per week", this doesn't really recognize that at least for me, I take photos in bursts, most often when I'm on vacation. So over a year that might work out to a couple of hours per week, but for the last 2 weeks in India, for example, I spent 6-8 hours/day taking photos.
