photogeek: They should just have said they didn't have intent. Apparently this works it the FBI is involved.

Grapes! Oranges! I'm getting hungry. Mayne I could go down to the bodega in my pajamas.

DavidsfotosDotCom: Trespassing can be carefully done in some places & does not = Vandalism!
Graphite on rocks, trees & bathroom mirrors is real = Vandalism!
Real vandals ought to be chained to their crime so the public could spit on them!

Good, dispassionate analysis.

In other arenas the government might be properly screwed, or maybe just gently throttled, and those include rack-taxing, stifling regulations, runaway federal courts, rules concerning light bulbs, toilet tanks, dried lychees, imported chopsticks, etc. To be sure, their stranglehold on the national – read federal – parks needs to be broken and control returned to the states.

DavidsfotosDotCom: The park service is out of control, they should be there to inform & help not dictate, tote pistols, issue tickets for hiking without a permit! These public servants go on strike & lock us out of OUR parks by locking the gates. This is BS. The NPS also destroyed the oyster farm at Pt. Reys. Oyster are natural & filter the water improving the water quality. I think there are enough retired people to do the 90% of the rangers legitimate functions for 1/4 the cost, many do this now for free camping space!
Not enough info on the Grand Prismatic incident to comment on that specifically, damage foot prints in boiling mud or what?

HEY GUY, THE FEDERAL LEVIATHAN IS NOT THE PEOPLE. It is entrenched bureaucrats, berserking politicians, and autocratic magistrates. Fooey on 'em.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Seven years in the galleys for a loaf of bread.

Federal jurisprudence in this case is unjust because unbalanced and tyrannically rigid.

They need to apply the law hard on vandals, easy on artists.

I hate these federal bastids [sic].

After further thought, I feel the violators should be boiled in -- no, sauteed lightly in butter.

I agree - they should be punished.

But there needs to be an arrangement that could grant permits, so that people might enter restricted areas, maybe under supervision.

This is absolutely intolerable! The states should NEVER HAVE CEDED THE PEOPLE'S LAND TO THE FEDERAL MACHINE. Let's TAKE IT BACK.

J Parker: I went to a restaurant today and bought some soup -- but had to pay extra for the spoon....

Whether it's headphone jacks or SD cards, trust me, it's not about innovation. Like the airlines constantly creating new fees, Apple intends to maximize every square inch of their products to make them as profitable as possible. I can't imagine these types of stunts being pulled on such an extremely loyal fan base if Steve Jobs was still around.

What happened to this company that once seemed to be the only tech company that understood creatives -- and focused on making products for those who chose to march to a different drummer every once in a while?

>> went to a restaurant today and bought some soup -- but had to pay extra for the spoon....

Haw haw, good one!

Sam Santana: "You've got this thing sticking halfway out"

So is your nose and knob and I very much doubt you'll want to cut them off Phil!

"Then there are very fine and fast USB card readers"

So why not put a decent one in there rather than the slow sub-par reader you've been putting in earlier models (which at least had one)

I'll keep my MBP until it no longer works at a decent speed and unfortunately it seems a Windows based laptop is on the cards next.

>>now it's sticking ALL the way out

Haw haw!

Phil shill.

Sarge_: First they turned the Mac Pro into a suppository, then they abandoned their pro creative apps, then they stopped evolving the MBP for almost five years, then they made the iPhone into the iDongle, and now they've ensured pro photogs and other 'on-location' creatives will switch to PCs. Apple has nothing of value to offer us.

As a pro photographer, the last thing I need are dongles to leave at home, one more piece of gear to lose on the plane, in the car, etc, and/or more batteries to charge. I have no interest in 'dongle life'.

Pro creatives, willing to pay up for superior gear, created the Apple 'mystique'. Those people have been abandoned. Looking at Microsoft's recent announcements, they're more than ready to deliver, and Apple no longer is...

Dongles in A.D. 2016?!

Gevalt...

I see some pretty notable barrel distortion (photos no. 35 and 42).

elefteriadis alexandros: The sample is really good, of course with same purple fringing in the corners but not so much for such a ultra wide lens.

Ha ha, good shtik.

No, you're wrong. I'm leaving now for the Indies and will not be reviewing these pages.

Pat Cullinan Jr: "If you're an APS-C shooter the 36mm equivalent focal length with an equivalent aperture of F2.7."

Folks, you're buying a lens having a fast aperture of f/1.8.

>There is no expanse and nothing cancels out.

What?
