In reply to:

JstarImaging: The sample gallery is a waste of time. Only one image at f1.4.

yep, all lenses alike at f8 (and 5.6 is near enough). the sample gallery does not capture the unique image signature of this lens - which reveals itself at 1.4 especially.

Rishi Sanyal: I was just telling my wife last night in the grocery store how nice it'd be to have a video camera in the fridge so we could see if we'd run out of pickles. I just couldn't remember how many pickles we had left. And I just don't like hamburgers without pickles.

Thankfully, Samsung to the rescue.

need 4k to determine the # of pickles and their state of crispness
and not sure understand why a video as opposed to stills camera; if something is moving in there i don't want to know about it...

Pixel Pooper: People whining about no AF, this lens is not for you. A good MF shooter should be more accurate than any AF system.

mailman88: This is funny.....the monkey is more popular than the photographer and now, both are famous.
I'm going to the zoo to tomorrow to visit the primate exhibit. Hopefully I can get a primate to shoot a selfie of us together....I'll be famous too and RICH!

suggest gorilla exhibit. (trading places - just ask the US Senator from MN) let us know how it works out for you. you may need wi-fi.

PATaMAT: Imagine you go on holiday with your wife/GF.
You own the camera, you switch it on, and then you pass it to her.
Then she takes the picture.

Is it your picture or hers?
I think the answer is obvious.
PS : I am not suggesting my GF is a monkey in any way :)

are you trying to make a monkey out of my wife?

p.s. the patent county courts are a lowbudget approach to IP litigation with a single judge - appeal lies to the High Court.

the decision is notable for the lack of defense raised/evidence offered on what any member of these forums could easily identify as distinguishing marks of originality.

in the colonies (US) decisions of the trial court lack precedential value; let's hope this applies to the patent county courts.

now back to more important things.

like the D4 vs. D3s vs. D3x vs. D700 vs. D800 vs. D400

and working through the steps to manage my grieving (the 9'ers loss).

what american courts are dealing with at this very moment.

note, Brit law does not have "fair use" apparently.

i'm a lawyer and this will get reversed (though no expert in UK law). Clearly, the judge is not a photographer - or if s/he is, doesn't know anything about digital photography or post-processing. the bus is not unique and the buildings are public domain, and one could argue from the diff in perspective (foreground bus the focus in the second work; background/context the focus in the earlier work) that the symbolism/symbolic meaning is also materially different.

and i now have respect for the unconstitutional Montana (or was it North Dakota) law that pronounced can't rely on foreign law - Austrian law, OMG!

the anglo-american common law system nears all-time low.
