Zebadee69: What happens to the interest made from sitting on $34 million?

What interest? Taken a look at the interest rates lately?

JackM: Note to self: never try to innovate or invent anything. People will sue you.

So lying is perfectly ok? As long as it is done under the guise of innovation?

Hmm, modeled on this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SierpiƄski_arrowhead_curve perhaps?

The US - the only place in the world where a $2.2b lawsuit over a photograph is even conceivable...

Mike CH: So Sony introduces a macro lens with - ta-da - macro capability?

What's next? A camera that actually takes pictures?

:-) :-) :-) :-)

From what, exactly?

Mike CH: Lenses, lenses, lenses...?!?

I can't be the only thinking that a roundup of ILC - Interchangeable Lens Cameras - ought to at least mention lenses available for the different cameras 'rounded up' as well as possibilities/necessities such as adaptors?

Otherwise - what's the point of spending 2000+ on a body without even considering the other half of the equation?

Yes, I would actually like them to test the lenses.

I mean, they call themselves Digital Photography Review, and not Digital Camera Review, right?

Make sense?

If they can do that for the lenses, they can certainly search for the bodies, too.

Navmark77: Seems pretty common sense. I don't want your drone that's over my house having any legal protection.

And quite less likely to hang over your backyard...

IR1234: Guess they'll be renaming it later today after a chat with Canons lawyers.

Yeah, that's not really a good name to choose ;-)

Mike CH: Why do I get the feeling that neither DPR nor Time knows what meme actually means...

(Hint it does not mean 'a lot of re-tweets' :-) )

For something to turn into a meme, it needs to be recognisable by people; a shared idea, part of the shared culture. A witty remark, re-twittered, isn't there, yet. It may be, later. But it takes more than that.

Take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme for a better explanation than the wiktionary one...

Mike CH: Most annoying aspect of this review - using 'glass' instead of 'lens'. Please, using glass for lens is an affectation, and an annoying one, at that :-(

"You sound like a lens half empty kind of guy"

darngooddesign, I am sure you know what you mean - at least I hope, so - as I surely do not!?!?

At least for FF there is reason, albeit a stupid one. But I would scone the Ida about using sizes in mms.

Saying glass just makes you sound like a hipster wannabe.
