I didn't mind the subscription model; that worked out ok price-wise for me, with access to PS also.

But I _very much_ do mind this move into the cloud, don't need it, don't want it and seriously don't want to pay for it. If LR Classic starts lagging behind LR CC, then I'll have to look for an alternative - much as I hate the idea.

Ivan Paganacci: Cheap bottle of red and everything looks like this.

Nah - that amount of softness needs at least two bottles...

HOW much?

PT Barnum was certainly right...

If DxO says people should look beyond the overall score...

... why on Earth do they publish it in the first place?

Roman_93: Do your homework Adobe - Nikon D850 integration in LR!
And change the ugly light grey bar at the top!

Chill - drink a beer. Support for new cameras normally comes within 1-2 months of launch.

And it wont be any faster just because you keep posting the same comment in every thread.

Mike CH: It seems to me that DxO will soon be running out of numbers...

Not that they mean anything.

It’s generally not a good idea to make assumptions about other people based solely on ones own behavior...

BaldCol: What a bunch of whining moaners there are on thie site. Why do people feel the need to be so miserably negative about so much? Lighten up people. If you don't like the concept just scroll on by.

For me, I like the idea of being able to edit with my image covering the full screen so I'll give it a try.

"... sometimes my irritation overtakes me" - human, isn't it?

At a guess, I'd hazard that at least some of the negative comments here derive from irritation at what DPR considers news ;-)

"If you don't like the concept just scroll on by" - you are aware, right, of the irony in your statement? ;-)

Just one question: Why?

Kurt Friis Hansen: In 1959 “An Evening (Wasted) With Tom Lehrer” was released. It contained the still valid quote:

“Life is like a sewer — what you get out of it depends on what you put into it.” - today most often abbreviated into “GIGO”.

How come, this thought crept up on me, while reading dpreview today?

Oh, another Tom Lehrer fan? I absolutely love his work; and it's as relevant today as it was back then...

Mike CH: And again - what do those numbers of DxO’s actually *mean*?

A bazillion-and-one on the Kauderwelsch-scale *still* doesn’t mean anything...

It must be nice, to be able to get people to swoon and moan over a n-point difference - when nobody actually knows what such a point means.

No, it’s not all bunk. Some reviewers publish quite clearly how they arrive at their numbers.

Oh, and I wouldn’t mind a subscription fee.

Yes, and perhaps it should have a few more? Instead of sponsored content...

So I guess the adds don’t contribute? Possible.

In reply to:

Najinsky: ...because who would want to look at a landmark, right?

Reminds me of that Swiss village no one had heard of that banned photography because the village was too photogenic.

Its the abbreviation of the Latin name for Switzerland - Confederatio Helvetica - also the ISO 2-character data code for Switzerland, yes.

And, no, I was not involved in that - rather stupid - stunt :-)
