I ran into a problem using various catalogs on LR. Even though pictures landed where they should have (and could be found in Finder) they had to be added manually later on. Multiple catalogs with smart previews would be a nice way to organize a decade of pictures if only it worked.
There is something weird going on at Adobe, a culture change or something. Still, despite all our complaints, their products remain market leaders. They should buy PhotoMechanic!

If this imaging technology is good enough for the surveillance drones that the US army is using it just might kick a considerable slice of ass way high up in the air. This camera could actually be a game changer if they pack enough processing power into it.

As I recall, the hospital mainframe work stations beeped at each letter but that was in the eighties. You could turn off the sound from the back.

What did we scratch before there were smartphones?

BobST: I like M6 shave and design. But I'll wait for M6 mk II. :)

Waiting for Godot...we have our quirks, all of us!
I handled the M6 and it felt a lot like a real camera, only smaller. Tempted!
But I had burned my budget buying a pair of anti-noise earphones so it has to wait.
BTW who would have thought that silence could be marketed as a product?

dcolak: Difference in resolution between a6000 and canon is startling.

What is mush on canon are fine lines on a6000.

Damn...

I would imagine the camera makers would look at the image quality of the lens-sensor combination and make the necessary adjustments to get the ideal result. From what I read, Sony's latest FF sensor behaves as if it was curved...how would you focus a generic lens on that one?

A small high-quality camera that actually works?
In chrome it is a real jewel, I almost bought it for the looks only.
Having wasted my time with the Sony A6000 I consider this one very seriously.
In fact, I hesitate between the SL-2 and the M6. The former would not even need any adapters...

My experience with the Sony A6000 is enough for me. It looks great on paper but it is quirky, hard to handle if you like. I gave it away, no regrets!

I have been waiting for this camera for quite a while. It will probably be under my Christmas tree with the EFS 24mm pancake lens attached.

Ken Rockwell had shot a seires of pictures for a real estate agent and the results were excellent. For once, he used a tripod and corrected for the slight distortion in PS.
I never learned to shoot this wide. One thousand dollars...no, not for me.
I'll probably get the EF 16-35 F/4 if I find a pile of money here somewhere. The Tokina 17mm f/3.5 only cost me 280 dollars...not as sharp as I'd like but OK value.

I am very happy with the 24-70 f/2.8 II.
In fact, I leave the primes home now that I got it.
Before, my favorite was the 35mm f/1.4 I.

On article Action-packed: Sony a6500 review (1164 comments in total)

I have been struggling with the A6000 until the zoom lense totally fell apart. It wasn't the camera, it was the Zony Zoom that gave me the hard time. It ceased to function totally. Now it shoud be fixed. here on my island, thee is no-one to fix it.
Once I put primes on the camera, it performed very well. I have the 12mm rokinon, the 20mm pancake, the35 and the 55 mm Sony lenses.
My original bad experiences were because of a faulty zoom lens.
Now I have learned (finally) to use the various focusing and wxposure modes and it really does about the same as my 5D3. Almost is an important word here.
I have learned to get the colors right, now I have the focusing, I figured out the PP work flow. I could now actually take this camera to any mission where long teles are not needed.

The 55mm is a jewel as is the rokinon 12. Canon EF 85L looks very good on the Sony if you focus it correctly. The metabones adapter...I will not say a bad word, but.

I have had both Samsung and Apple. Today Samsung has a better phone on the market. The wireless Samsung charger one cannot live without...
I do not like AppleStore or iTunes. Google Play restricts the selection of apps in where I live but that's why there is VPN. In the Apple system I am confined to the store where my ID is registered. Something about the Apple attitude bugs me.

gbdz: The decisive battles are fought elseqhere, between the Androids, the iOSs and some Windows cameras. More and more, people will notice that the fancy mirrorless or dslr is gathering dust in the closet because –let's face it– your smartphone is always with you and the pictures you are taking are mostly shared on social media or printed to post card size.

I got tired of my HTC's photo quality and finallly got myself an iPhoen 6 plus.
It became obvious that the Sony A6000 has nothing to do any longer. If I want to record everyday instances, iPhone is adequate. I I want to play the Grand Artist, the 5D III covers every need I may dream of. Like in photography.
though Iäd like some more...off something that the Sony sensors have but the Canons donät...and so forth.

It is the small mammals, the smartphones, who are killing the sauriens...

Actually world is visually polluted by people who just do not have the gift of beauty, any part of it. Cell phone cameras just spread their crap around, they do not make it.

On article The whole nine yards: Canon 35mm F1.4L II USM review (338 comments in total)

I finally got myself the Mk I second hand as this version was introduced.
But since I upgraded the 24-70 f/2.8 to Mk II I've noticed that the occasions to use the 35mm are less and less. Canon's version II lenses are quite amazing. We will probably see the 50mm f/1.2 MkII pretty soon and there will finally be used Mk Is in the market for a reasonable price. Not that I'd upgrade, loving the quirks.

BTW Cicala's dissections of newly introduced stuff are extremely informative. You get a very good idea about what you are paying for.
