Now, hush...The price of opportunistic offer has always been shapped by gullible demand.

miksto: For all the whiners around that complained "subscription removes incentive to innovate" we see throughout the last year some of the most significant product developments by Adobe proving the whiners wrong. And it does make sense. Incentive is in keeping your product relevant so that more people stay on subscription. Subscription or not the basic dynamics of being paid for staying relevant to your user base is still there. People come and people go based on relevance
Well done Adobe!

We see arrival of AI to the scene making things better and more is to come, performance improvements and great new features. It is not often that I find all new features useful FOR ME rather than not useful but with Adobe over the last year it is totally the case for me.

Recently, I have finally come to understand where all the whining about the subscription model comes from. Hint: It has nothing to do with the subscription model.

Bershatsky: Windows 10, 8700K, 1080 Ti, 64GB Ram, NVME, etc. and it's SLOW!!!

Neat features, but SLOW!!! Glitchy!

Tried it on my 2017 15" Macbook Pro - guess what? Slow also!

Capture one is indeed better, but slow to update and support new cameras, they are feuding with Fuji over the GFX, and their catalog sucks, but at least editing is better.

I will NOT be renewing my Adobe subscription (that is if Capture One will support my new camera or not by then).

I am on Windows 10, i7-6700K, GTX 1060 6GB, 32GB RAM and it glides smooth and fast, a pleasure to work with. There must be something seriously wrong with your system (bogus parts?).

Don't feel so special. I Always make that check. It is a question of sanitation.

My whole sanitation questionnaire to interact with another member is:

1. Does he/she has any photography to be seen anywhere? (relates to credibility).
2. Does he/she have a sense of humor, any sense of humor? (relates to intelligence).
3. Is he/she obnoxious? (relates to empathy and general decency).

Once an user gets "strike 3" on these, there's no point in further interactions.

You briefly seemed to get away with #2 in that list but it seems it was an ill perception on my part.

No more "Likes" for you, I am afraid. Be well.

Correct.

It is, however, proportional to his or her willingness to show anything, anywhere.

Have another "Like" for the continued entertainment value.

It is kind of a recent trend, the "haters"...I guess the more "gadgty" cameras become, the more the wrong crowd is attracted. Some times it is fun, sometimes it is just idiotic.

mrkalntms,

Since you belong to one of the strangest DPR user groups - those who frequent a photography site without a single photo to show for- I normally wouldn't find it worthwhile to interact with you.

However, for some reason, I find your comment extremely funny, so I pressed "Like".

Ah, the missing link!...a lens that renders gradation into OOF areas like a crude Photoshop job.

Now, when we see that funky look, we can play a new "was it a lens?, was it the PP?" game.

...and the saga will continue...People saying how "Meh!" Canon cameras are and Canon users enjoying what is so clearly depicted in this one more very explicit gallery.

Hiroshi 8: I still wonder why dpreview don’t invie a real photographer to test cameras and lenses. No offence but every time I see a photo taken by your staff it looks so amateurish and it doesn’t help seeing how good a camera or lens can be.

I also wonder why we take so serious words from reviewers that are no real skilled photographers.

What is said in your reviews here will have a huge impact worldwide and I’m finally starting to think that this website is scamming us since longtime ago.

I feel that DPR staff makes a damn good job at showing what a camera or lens can do.

Maybe you don't understand what they their self-imposed task is...?

They are not in the business of showing of their skills but rather making as congruent as possible small specific-tasks portfolios so those of us who know what to look for can see if "it is there" or "it isn't".

I, for one, am extremely grateful that, on several instances and on account of their continued efforts, I've been able to see things that fell under those 2 categories...many times contradicting, through their hardcore "to the point" samples, the "facts of the masses".

Got to love it when our cynical side is so wonderfully and majestically crushed.

Tical,

You mean things in the real world are not like it's so profusely commented on DPReview?

I'll be damned...

I don't know about you guys but, to me, this plays like a GIF in a single shot. I just can't stop my eyes wandering around it, creating a virtual movement scene. Extremely well done.

PhotoKhan: Let me get this straight: Sony prepares a setting for evaluation of the a7III by the media with all variables, including lighting, duly controlled, prepared cameras with hand-picked lenses and all that comes out is this contrast-flat, skin-tones-variation-bonanza output...Hmmm...

Wow...!...You don't even understand to what you're replying to, amidst your rants...amazing...

Ah, I knew it wasn't all as you tried to subliminate in the original reply...Thank you for playing!

(...although I love words, I much rather prefer actual pictures in this context. Perhaps you'll consider enlightning all of us about about what you're doing with your perferred colors set in future, instead of the "nothing to look at" currently featured?...If for nothing else, it would put this unease to rest about the possibility that you don't have a clue regarding what you're talking about...)
