forpetessake: How is Sigma's "try before you buy" any better than buy and return for full refund if not satisfied most vendors offer? In fact it's worse, Sigma offers just one week, while most vendors allow 30 days of use.
Often those "buy and return" policies have certain shutter count limits attached. ie you can't take more than, say, 300 pictures without them refusing a return after that point.
aliquis: Can't I just get a camera which fill the following criteria:1) No mirror box.2) Built in image stabilization.3) APS-C or bigger sensor.4) Decent range of lenses / good lenses the few that exist.
Do 2 and 3 exist in any camera? Why not? Because they want to build them small? If they want to build up look and make it look like a DSLR then ..
Olympus make cameras I would really like if they wasn't four-thirds.
Mark me down as another person who won't buy a camera without in-body stabilization.
JohnnyWashngo: It's a website that is aimed at mobile photography and yet the layout is not responsive?
The layout is the same regardless of device it is being viewed on. This may have been a purposeful decision and if so then fair enough, but I would have imagined that the site would have been written to render in a more readable fashion on a mobile phone.
Surely you've heard of the phrase "mobile first" when it comes to websites?
I still don't understand what the new site is supposed to be. Is it a mobile phone/tablet photography blog?
TomFL: Does anybody actually use the Quick Develop module in Library view???? And why on earth are these still not sliders????
I can't believe this wasn't removed or revamped. I think I must be missing something here. I get that these are intended to be relative changes to a group of pictures instead of absolute, but I find them almost never useful and they have a prominent place in the GUI.
Better sensitivity in exposure slider is a big plus, this drove me crazy.
I've put through 10,000+ scanned slides in Lightroom 3 and have found it to be an enormously useful tool. 50 years of my family photographs.
Face recognition would have been useful but I see that most people don't require this, I was able to hack through Picasa face recognition into Lightroom to get about 80% of it done, but even these algorithms are still not really ready for prime time, you still have to go back and check almost every photo.
Maps is a nice addition, wish Canon would put a GPS in 5D MK3.
I use quick develop whenever I can. The only time I don't use it is when I need to look at a single photo's editing history, crop, or use spot adjustments / gradations.
capanikon: I like the controls on the Fujifilm X100 and X-1Pro more than the controls on this Canon. The exposure compensation dial on this Canon is weirdly enormous.
Try one, you'll like it. I had a Canon G10 which I used for a couple of years and I LOVED having that exposure compensation dial.
bmlsayshi: You mention the fill light option is being removed. What is it being changed to? Would I up the highlights instead?
I managed to find some info http://forums.adobe.com/message/4128170#4128170 and http://tv.adobe.com/watch/whats-new-in-lightroom-4-beta/develop-module-advancements/
Anyone? Please? This is important to me because its the feature I use the most in Lightroom...

tourtrophy: I am surprised Fuji X100 and X10 were not mentioned.
I understand the concern, but I still would have put the x100 in here, maybe under the others section. I know its not interchangeable, but I 100% guarantee its marketed at and being bought by the exact same audience as these cameras.
