About me:

I take passport photo's for a living. I'm paid $20 as an hour. Does this mean I'm a paid professional photographer? My prints are going for $16 for four photo's. That's $4 a photo. That I've taken.

On SLR Magic to show four prototype lenses at Photokina article (114 comments in total)
In reply to:

magneto shot: Since my brief review of the prototype here, a series of first production models were bought by “testers” for around 60% of the retail price in exchange for feedback. And apparently, the lens has failed in its performance. I saw first hand a loose ring on Todd Hatekayama’s lens. And Facebook is now seeing many complaints regarding the len’s inability to focus at infinity in addition to loose rings.SLR MAGic has been blaming it on packaging in shipping, even when there was no shipping involved. Because of the commotion, Steve Huff, who raved unusually much about the lens and pushed for people to buy of check it out quite heavily on his site, placed an update asking people to hold off on buying.

Andrew... You can not be for realsies right?

Thanks for your 'personal' email address there.

How about incorperating a two week money back garuntee? Or a month. or something?! Get people to like your lenses. Instead of been a fool and finger pointing to lieca so your company doesn't look so bad. Poor marketing. Own up to past mistakes instead of complaining about other companies with no legit evidence.

King Penguin: Amazed by the predudice people have over a company name.... For instance the LG brand, quite well known and respected, stands for Lucky Goldstar and then there is the powerful Mitel Corp. (US), makes a lot of the insides of phones, well it started life as Mike and Terry's Lawmowers (Mike & Tel)
What about the sports car company TVR, that's the shortened first name of the founder, Trevor........need I go on?

It is a silly brand name as it is stating that the brand does SLR lenses when it does not. It does M43rd lenses. TVR etc.. perfectly acceptable names considering they arn't telling fibs on what their company actually does. They just don't tell us. Perhaps i will release a line of compact cameras and call them fullframePRO Magics? You don't see my point?

Slobodan Blagojevic: Has anyone tried to explain to the manufacturer that R in SLR stands for "reflex," i.e., mirror, thus making it just as ridiculous for mirrorless cameras as the whole name itself (otherwise more appropriate for, say, p3nis-enlargement pills)?

Just saying... completely different words brah. (sorry, I am a writer)

In other words...

Canon's brand name = highly thought out (given its simarlarity to the previous name, however two completley different meanings)

SLRMagic's brand name = Dumb. The R? Is a Roose. Why not call themselves Micro 4/3rd's Magic? Yeah? Yeah? I expect calls from their head office soon. :)

Silly Jan Kritzinger. The 'cannon' you are referring to has two 'n's' and was/is often found shooting out 'cannon' balls. The other 'Canon' with one 'n' is often mentioned when describing something of high importance, value or standard. As in, Twilight was not written by a canonical author. Or. SLRMagic will never hold a place in the photographic canon as the name is stupid. The 'R'? Mirrorless cameras don't have a mirror. Now i am just as confused as you to begin with. :/

bbjorkum: It's terrible. It's terrbile and unpredictable. And this crappy stuff causes Fuji to discontinue their excellent line of accurate, perfect instant films?

Well. Yes. Yes it could. I sell camera's at my workplace, and we sell Fuji Instant film and also the cameras. People come in ALL THE time asking for Polariod cameras, and seeings that its impossible (nearly) to get them into the store and are only available online, the customers, dissapointingly almost, always compinsantitly get the fuji as it is easier to get film and is available in stores. So in actual fact, Fuji will loose huge amounts of sales if Polariod was easier to get as Polariod is a much 'cooler' and 'trendier' brand for mass consumers, as bbjorkum suggested earlier.
