yanisha: I am very glad Adobe decided to focus mostly on bug fixes for LR Classic CC this time. I have used LR since 4. Then 5. Then LR CC for the last 2.5+ years. Although many people during all that time were hit by LR bugs and horrible performance I was always rather lucky with LR working pretty well with acceptable (not great) performance. During those years I used LR on several different computers. That changed with LR 7.0 though. Several strange interface bugs were introduced. Also, in the Develop module the display would sometimes act strange and then after a few seconds go back to normal. Exactly same thing happened on both of my Win10CU computers (Dell and HP). 7.1 didn't fix the problems. 7.2 didn't fix the problems. 7.3 didn't fix the problems. 7.3.1 didn't fix the problems. Finally, it seems like 7.4 may have fixed them. I used LR 7.4 for about 1.5 hours last night and the strange problems that had been there since 7.0 seemed to be gone. Great!

Of course, I agree with you. The situation with Adobe is not good. I have spent time with 3 other programs: ACDsee Pro, Aftershot Pro, and darktable. All have many good points, but they also have negatives and bugs too. The single biggest issue though is now with about 105k photos in my LR catalog and about 45k of them have been edited I would lose the ability to go back and tweak earlier edits (which I do very often) if I drop LR CC. It is called lock in. Of course, ACDSee, ASP, darktable, are the same with regards to the non-destructive editing lock in.

Photo says "35mm film being loaded into the Pixl-latr."

That isn't 35mm film. Looks like 120 film.

Still not posted in news feed. New Gimp and Lightroom on news feed though.

Lightroom 7.3.1 was just a bug fix release, but it was posted on the front page. Darktable 2.4.3 had some small new features, new cameras supported, and also bug fixes.

I bought a new Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 in Canon mount in 2003 for about $290.

dpreview should put the new darktable release on their news feed also.

On article 2017 in review: a look back at August (6 comments in total)

Reviewing 2017 by month is too large a granularity. By the week would be better and by the day would be best.

There is a very good, informative, active, current thread about this release:

It's time for Santa to have a special camera designed just for him. :-)

Ramchi: If Leica wants to compete with Sony, Nikon, and Canon in the mainstream market, they need to adjust the strategy to be a strong contender.

Typically, Leica equipment lasts almost forever(and very very expensive) which forces the buyer NOT to make frequent purchases unlike Sony or other brands which are considerably cheaper and forces people to purchase their products frequently (unlike Leica cameras).

Hence, Leica to gain major push in the market must make their camera body lot-lot cheaper (possibly modular) and keep the cost of lenses at optimal levels(maybe one Prime Lens at affordable range and rest of the lenses at premium price points). Without a large number of people start using the product, the iconic company such as Leica would go down the drain sooner or later.

Leica could consider making good margin in After Sales, Support, Servi es, Accessories instead of trying to make HUGE HUGE margin in the Camera Body itself.

Old Leica film gear lasts a long time. Old Nikon, Minolta, etc. film gear does too. Digital Leica just like all the others doesn't last nearly as long.

yanisha: Leica is responding to the wonderful Olympus PEN-F with a me-too product. It is Leica, so, of course, very expensive with limited very expensive lenses. I am glad that people who can't get the PEN-F now have a substitute.

Chasing the PEN-F gestalt? Leica seems to be going after the great gestalt of the PEN-F.

Franz Weber: Why does nobody create a 12-120mm lens? That would be much more useful than the fifth or sixth 14-150mm or 14-140mm!

There is the Olympus 12-100mm f4.

Both version II and version I are wonderful lenses. I bought version I about 6 years ago and version II a couple of years ago.

Hypoxic: It was the powerful DAM features that brought me to Lightroom and it is only a new DAM that will lead me away (and I'd be happy to leave Adobe). I appreciate all of the editing options these companies are touting but it seems like none of the LR alternatives have realized that a lot of people care more about the DAM primarily and the editing options secondarily. Maybe I'm in the minority on this one, I'm not sure.

Digikam and Darktable are free. Adobe Bridge is also free.

The various companies that want to seriously compete with Lightroom need to work very hard to find a way to import a Lightroom catalog and come as close as possible to duplicating the results of all the non-destructive editing. Non-destructive editing is the true lock-in. The metadata (keywords, star ratings, etc.) can be transferred already to many programs, but the editing mostly cannot (Darktable and Capture One Pro can import a severe subset of it). I have 100k photos in my LR catalog and 40k that I have spent years editing. I regularly tweak the editing on photos I have already done. I am loath to lose years of work. If a company could get close (doesn't have to be exact) to the look of my edited photos then I would very seriously consider switching. It is difficult, no doubt, but not impossible to simulate the look of LR editing.

Q. Will Lightroom become a subscription only offering after Lightroom 5?

A. Future versions of Lightroom will be made available via traditional perpetual licenses indefinitely.
