M Lammerse: "...a popular editing console for Adobe Lightroom users..."

Are there other ones...and what is popular? The only time I saw it actually being used was during an exhibition.

Thanks for the detailed response. I'm very much looking forward to trying it out!

@skanter, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much would you recommend this product? I see from this board that all who've used it gush about it, so obviously it has something going for it. And as you pointed out, they've had regular updates and now a new product, so it can't be doing too bad.

Lassoni: People actually buy this stuff?

@pokesfan, I've never used this before and am quite interested. Are you saying this thing is a lot faster than working with mouse and keyboard for an experienced user? If so, I have to try one out. I routinely go through a thousand pictures a week and the process bores me to death. Any time-saving tool will be a great help. How long would you say the learning curve is?

I had the same question. Does "popular" mean they sold 100,000 or 1,000 units? Or does it mean it sold more than the next closest competitor? Among my admittedly limited number of friends, peers, colleagues and competitors (say around 25 people), I don't recall anyone using this. Just curious.

This is something that a lot of beginners can stand to benefit from and a trick that old-hands use to gorgeous effect. Even non-frame objects protruding into the foreground can make an image a lot more interesting and life-like.

dash2k8: The bodies already have the coolest tech in them, now Sony just needs to have lenses to cover the entire spectrum. Right now their offerings are fewer than Canon's and Sony's, let's not pretend that's not an issue. Unless Sony plans to reach the top by only targeting serious amateurs and pros, they need to fill the grandpas and grandmas' sector of the market with simpler fare. I'm all for competition because it will keep the other brands earnest. Can Sony close the gap with Canon in just two+ years? Let's wait and find out!

"Remove the number of non-stabilized lenses Canon offers, and then remove the number of Canon lenses that struggle to resolve above 24mp and you will find the gap isn't as large as you might think."

But the reality is, there still IS a gap. Sony doesn't have enough cheap items to satisfy the grandparents-shooting-grandchildren-at-the-picnic sector. And these are the same people who don't know that you can attach a third-party lens to a Sony body with a converter, nor do they care about 24MPs ("What's a megapixel?"). I am not hating on Sony, I love my a7s (1 and 2) and think their mid- to high-end stuff are great. I just don't think they can reach their goal of being #1 without cheaper stuff in their catalog.

I think it's similar to people thinking that they can just open up their aperture and get a blurred background... and don't understand why the back wall is perfectly clear when their subject is standing 1 foot away! LOL

I get what you're saying. My point was, as long as people understand what's going on and know how to control it, they can call it whatever they want.

This setup looks quite cumbersome and heavy!

I'm totally with you.

dash2k8: Looks like the zero-distortion is for real. Reminds me of the Canon 11-24 in its distortion control. Too bad they don't have a FF version, or else I'd definitely consider it.

Thanks for the heads-up! Will be checking them out!

melgross: I wish they’d make full frame versions, even though they’d cost at least 50% more. The samples in full size RAW look pretty good.

Not exotic in width, but the distortion free is amazing.

ttran88: THIS shows you how much Nikon is over charging for their D850.. Old tech for such a high price.

Even "if" Nikon is overcharging, enough people are willing to pay for it to result in tremendous profit. I'd say Nikon has struck a good balance.

And no, I don't think Nikon is overcharging. For such a monstrous camera, the price is definitely reasonable. Would I prefer it to be sold at $500? Definitely. But I disagree Nikon is overcharging.

madecov: But, but, but.... I thought Nikon was doomed. Just read all the comments on the forums. Nikon is doomed

Don't know about the a7r3, but the a7iii is sold out in most places.

Can't wait for the D950.

dash2k8: The mirrorless train is gaining steam, with Canon and Nikon set to join Sony. I'm highly interested to see what's coming.

I'm referring to the upcoming Canon FF mirrorless, not the EOS-M series. Good selling? I don't know about that. I guess good enough that it's not discontinued.
