What about the software and the interaction with the hardware? many people seem to be very happy about Final Cut and Photos on their Macs. It's the classic strength of Apple to run things smooth on their devices.

Vanitas Photo: I got tired of waiting and switched to Capture 1, the lack of optimization has been LR problem since day one.

Is LR a good idea? Sure it is a GREAT idea but poorly executed, call me dumb but when it has performance issues on an I7 with 16gb ram and a great nvidia card then it is a lost cause... And also call me crazy but when someone neglects their costumers as long as Adobe has, then pffffft I dont have any reason to put my money in their products.

They must be seeing subscriptions to LR declining amd now they are worried...

yeah sure, they became a multi billion $ corporation by lack of software engineering talent… rofl!

bug fixing is a whole different beast than performance tuning.

this is a dick move of photobucket but i kinda love how the internet "cleanse" itself every few years. it's like the burning of some ancient library hundreds of years ago. this pattern seems to follows mankind.

"…the Mark III ditched the friendly curves for sharper, more aggressively-sculpted edges. Shame"

wth? they look almost the same, the changes are very subtle.

Imagemaven: At one point the photographer for sporting events had a single shot Graflex and created great images by looking anticipating and being a trained photographer. I applaud technology but there is a point of diminishing return in cameras for the still photographer.

compared to the beautiful 70s and 80s soccer photography, today's pics look like crap. super sharp and high iso and what not but uninspired and boring.

dennis tennis: Must I state the obvious? These people were breaking the law, trespassing on private property. They are ILLEGALS and must be killed. People who break the laws in American are trampling on the Constitution, traitor to Freedom and Democracy, and must be shot till dead. Liberal fascists with their relativism, bull hockey. You break the law, you pay with your lives. The law is the law. Illegal immigrants, deported, trespassers, killed. Done and done.

@barbakane i think you missed the irony in mr. dennis tennis post. he is well known on this board for his (fake) trumpist-like outrage.

Contra Mundum: They should disqualify any propaganda 'art' from participating, otherwise it becomes just as ridiculous as a Nobel peace prize.

@dennis tennis by far the best comment here

nicolaiecostel: Nice and sharp but I'd invest in medium format if the sensor would be close to 6x45. This is glorified full frame.

glorified full frame is a nice description :)

rfsIII: Whoa...that night shot with the green streetlights—thanks to the Fuji's high resolution you can tell that the guy with the umbrella is hunting for replicants.
Beautiful work.

i agree! what a wonderful shot.

maxnimo: Photography is not as fun as it used to be - way too many great photographers out there have caused an oversaturation of greatness and excellence.

hmm, they have always been out there, just now you can see it because of the internet and mobile phones/social media.

StephanBG: Everyone here would sell his used gear for 20% more if possible, so shut up.

nobody needs your used equipment but everybody NEEDS Lightroom/Photoshop. if things shift from "want" to "need", then market rules don't apply anymore.
