Elliot H: did they discover oil?

Perhaps they are waiting for the price of oil to recover! :)

Kamox: The only lenses I have kept in my hand that felt like could be used forever, were those with manual focus (the two, older-than-my-father, lenses for my 4x5 Graflex, the Nikkor AI, Leica lenses).
AF lenses will become obsolete or unusable (like the new AF Nikon lenses without aperture ring) at some point.
Of course they are way more convenient.

Some of the Zeiss FF.2 and ZE lenses feel that way!

Favorable Exponynt: When I focus on bokeh it disappears.

Yup, here too. I hate it when that happens :D

Linz178: Have just stumbled on the D500 news - great, after all time! I haven't had time to read anything in detail, but I'm wondering about its multiple exposure capability. Can it combine 10 images (as in the D300) or is it restricted to three (as in more recent Nikon cameras)?

According to Nikon the answer is yes!

Totally agree but I don't know if the Hassy CEO is a visionary or not :)

Understood but corporate history is full of transformative stories of CEO's from another industry turning a company around. As long as the CEO surrounds him/herself with people that are experienced in the industry, a great symbiosis can be formed that can really move a company forward. Hopefully that is what is going on here but i do understand your concern.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. They probably opened the article, saw the picture of the stylized Sony camera and had to start typing without reading the article or even the headline.

On article Sony Alpha a7 II Review (848 comments in total)
In reply to:

E.J.: Very misleading size comparison. the REAL size difference without making one look much bigger by hanging a bigger lens off of it to mislead the viewer, is not so much of a difference at all. Once you put the same lens on them, which extend past the grip anyway, the difference is essentially insignificant.

Yes, larger due to the deeper grip which is in response to user requests for a deeper grip and user desire to move the shutter button. I wasn't contesting the weight. I was trying to say that the DPReview picture of the two is very misleading since they put a big lens on the A7II and a small one on the A7. If they wanted to cover it fairly, they should have attached the same lens on both.

On article Nikon releases ViewNX-i image browsing software (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

E.J.: Wow, it actually looks like they fixed the retina display MacBook Pro issue. Even though the version number is the same, there is a slight difference in the download size today compared to the initial offering a few days ago. Uninstalling the old and re-installing with a new download fixed the MBP spinning beachball issue.

Interesting, try using the uninstaller that comes with the install and is in the Applications > Nikon > View NXI folder. Then redownload and install again. Something definitely changed as I have several systems that beachballed and after doing that they all work.

The released version still crashes way too often on the Mac platform, especially when tuning Nikon bodies. Hopefully Version 2, when it eventually comes to Mac, will be more stable.

Confirmed to be nothing but spinning beachballs on any Mac Book Pro with Retina display that I can get my hands on (10 systems) - Mavericks or Yosemite - doesn't matter.

Jim Kaye: Hangs for minutes with spinning beach ball on my MacBook Pro, 8 GB RAM, running Yosemite 10.10.2. After force close, same problem on trying to reopen it. Uninstalled it and put NX2 back -- Nikon has to do better than this.

Yup, many of us on Macs with Yosemite having this problem. It installs fine but basically does not work and forces a process hang internally as per the crash diagnostics. Very repeatable on multiple machines.

Software loads, but then hangs with spinning beach ball.

Same here. See first part of a huge error log above.

Many believe this is Canon's entry into the 3D printer market.

Jason Haven: Basically they just made it clear that if you bring extra equipment and people for a commercial purpose, you need a permit. Individual making no more impact than any other visitor? No problem. This story is a whole lot of nothing.

The fundamental problem though is that the language is vague enough that different rangers will enforce it differently. This has been a problem in the US on other similar laws that were equally vague and has led to a lot of grief for some photographers when a ranger enforced a law that didn't even apply because of his/her lack of understanding of it.

Put a Sony 24mp APS-C Bayer sensor in that X-T1 Platinum and I'm all in on the system, hook line and sinker, lenses and all. For me and what I do, there is zero advantage to the X-trans and in some ways it is a disadvantage. The X-T1, to me, is the most photographer friendly digital camera ever built from a controls standpoint.
