On article Hands-on with new Olympus PRO 8mm and 7-14mm lenses (296 comments in total)

" announced to new wideangle 'Pro' lenses"...good thing they didn't announce "for" new lenses, or especially "ate" new lenses...and this person gets paid to write these articles, but not to "right" them...

I hope it isn't ONLY for Mac OS 10.8 and 10.9. I'm happy with SL 10.6 on my iMac and Mac Book. The iMac can run 10.9 but the Mac Book is limited to 10.7 which I tried but didn't like (still no good for DPP if it only supports 10.8 and higher). I can't upgrade from Aperture 3.2.4 for the same reason, but it does what I need for now. I would like to get more into DPP, especially with the new look. Guess I will have to either run my two machines with different OS's, or just sit on the curb and clap as the parade goes by....

Roadtripper: And once again us Snow Leopard users are left high and dry....

I hope your computer will be compatible with Mavericks...Apple has a history with dropping support for older computers when they release a new OS (my Mac Book is not ML 10.8 compatible, but my iMac is). I will not run different OS'es on my computers.

Once again, the employer-employee relationship is a one-way street. If the employee quits, the employer screams "there's no employee loyalty!"...if the employer lays off/fires the employee it's for "cost savings"...where's the employer's loyalty?

Howard: Kudos to Nikon. As a long time Canon user (have had 3 EOS film bodies and 5 DSLRs over the years), I must say Canon has fallen behind in recent years. Still no 24MP APS-C body, and still no 30MP+ FF body (I know, I know, MP is not everything, but they can and should make high-res sensors with good performance).

Anyway, had I not heavily invested in Canon lenses, were I to start out today, Nikon surely looks very, very compelling.

Had I not been talked into a Canon EOS 10s over the Nikon 8008s I went in to buy in 1990, I really think I would be happier with an expanded Nikon system instead of Canon. But, we make our beds....

I realize that Apple's Aperture is Macintosh only, but it should be included in this "shoot-out" because it is a viable contender for those who use Macs, both on an amateur as well as professional level. It may not be a "leading contender" but it does draw Mac users away from the so-called leaders. I chose Aperture over Lightroom after trying both of their free trials. I not only preferred Aperture for it's ease of use, but also it's cost - $79 vs Lightroom's $149. There are professional photographers who use Aperture for their entire workflow... please don't slight them (as well as us amateurs) in your reviews.
Thank you for listening....

Apple is doing their best to force us into upgrading our OS to their "latest and greatest", and totally abandoning those of us who are happy with older Mac OS versions. I tried Lion when it came out and went right back to Snow Leopard (due to dropped internet connections). I can't upgrade to Aperture 3.4 unless I get Lion or Mountain Lion. Now I can't download Digital Camera RAW. Thanks, Apple, for leaving a lot of Mac and Aperture users out in the cold....

On article Apple releases Aperture v3.3 with iPhoto integration (41 comments in total)

I'm disappointed in Apple for making this update exclusive to OS 10.7.4. I like Snow Leopard, and yes, I DID try OS Lion for a while. I'm not a Lightroom 4 user, but I will check it out now. If Adobe stays compatible with older Apple OS's I may just switch.

I looked up my time zone.... Arizona is supposed to be able to download at 4:00 PM my time as Grablife stated, but if the download period is only for 12 hours, my window closes at 3:59 AM, not PM. I hope Uwe's server can adjust to handle the load! If it can't, I still want to thank Uwe for his generous offer of a free download!

Can we put our name on a list for a "rain check" of sorts? I can't log on either, and I would love to look at this book.

The article states the download is available for 12 hours only. I'm thinking your Saturday PM times are actually Sunday AM times (ie: Pacific should read Sunday 3 AM to Sunday 2:59 PM). But thanks for taking the time to look up the time conversions for us!
