Loved the gallery of images. Hard to pick a favorite!

As a GR II owner, this is one I will be eager anticipating. My only concern will be with Snap focus (which I use almost exclusively with my GR II). The longer focal length will have shallower depth of field, so Snap focus will likely be more out of focus images (at least for me, I'm guessing). But excited about the 40mm focal length, prefer to 35mm.

Silat Shooter: Man, I just picked up the 35mm f1.8, and now wondering if I should return it for this one. Wanted something small and light when I didn't feel like using a 24-70 f2.8. This lens looks great wide open.

I have to say, I went and shot the 35mm f.18 this weekend and the results were very pleasing. Truly nothing to complain about. I have no doubt that the new f1.4 version is better but I saw an image of the two lenses sitting side by side and the f1.8 is soo much smaller than the new f1.4, and for me that clicks a very important user box. So I'm going to stay with the f1.8 version. I also realize that when I shoot portraits with me wider angles, I tend to stop down to give some sense of location, so the bokeh advantage at this focal length is minimized for me. At longer focal lengths, absolutely more important (again for my own shooting).

NexUser: I bought 4.0. I used DxO 4-5 years ago and didn't like it. This version is so good. Rendering, optical corrections, sharpening, colour adjustments, noise reduction are top notch and effects and adjustments are fast on my old i7 + 32GB Ram desktop.

I agree. I think it's really solid software. Haven't pulled the plug on my Adobe subscription yet but will see how I feel in 90 days after getting more hands on.

On article Sony a7C review: Compact size, big sensor image quality (2234 comments in total)

I had high hopes for this as a Sony shooter. But too many compromises in key user areas will make this a no-go for me. Also was hoping for a new sensor with a bit more crop-ability. Plenty of great street shooter cameras to draw inspiration from to make this one special but feels a bit lazy in execution (to me).

(unknown member): soccer mom and dad's dream. phone camera for wide angle plus this for tele. Will not break the bank. Nor your neck carrying it. Perfect.

That's a great point. Those folks have completely given up on a camera bag and gear. My nephew plays and you only see cell phones being used for imaging.

This sure feels like Sony trying to keep shooters from jumping ship to Canon's new cameras about to be announced. The ole 'let's keep 'em on the fence' tactic. This better be really special given the length of time.

Adobe Photoshop 2020 crashing when I click on Viveza or Dfine after update. Seems a fix is needed. Just an FYI

Do we really need another line of Cine Lenses? The market for Cine lenses can't be that big.

Looks like we'll be seeing more aggressive rebates this summer from Canon and Nikon..

I think this is more aimed at Cooke Cine Lenses. The Sigmas will come in a fraction of the Cooke's prices.

I like it, if they can create a family of compact high quality lenses like Pentax did to match up to this body, it could become a cult camera.

I knew immediately after looking at this list that there would be a TON of comments listing other cameras that didn't show up on this list. I'll add my favorite compact ever the Contax T and the T2, both amazing little gems. The Leica R6.2, the Pentax 67, the Olympus OM-4T, the Minolta XD-11, the Canon F1n, Contax RTS III, these were all lustful cameras that were a joy to use and own.

Looks really intriguing! I'd have to try it before committing $$$$. So used to a palm rest and track pad in the center when typing, wondering how comfortable it would b to use for non-photo editing work (Word, Excel, etc). But the thinking here is terrific for sure!

xPhoenix: Although I own a GR2, my main body is a DSLR, so I never left. ML has nothing to offer wildlife shooters.

Amazing focus tracking and no-blackout viewfinder so you can track your subjects, not to forget up to 20fps. DSLRs are great, but Mirrorless definitely has some valuable tools for wildlife shooting.

If I see that they have changed my charges from $10 to $20, I'm cancelling and finding an alternative. I can live without Adobe.

Maybe they will get 4k right in 2022.

Complete horsehyte, and this is from a canon fan. GTSOH

1000% AGREED! Tired of their nonsense and their statement on 8K is in the hope to keep more shooters from jumping ship.

I have one of the older cable Intuos and it works well. I'm actually in the market for a new laptop and considering one of the newer 2 in 1 with the pen functionality to basically have this built in.
