cdembrey: Absolutely no interest in a FF mirrorless Nikon, but I would have liked a PROFESSIONAL Nikon 1β€”you know a mirrorless 810 with a 1" sensor.

This looks like Adobe's fake focus correction a few years ago that only worked on photos they intentionally scrambled.

LightBug: Very nice lens. As a Pentax user, it's nice to know Ricoh/Pentax still can design a great lens given the small budget they probably have for research.

Ricoh, pentax is just a owned name now

Robbie Corrigan: Preordered. Looks like it will supplement my existing set of primes nicely.This is a Pentax statement lens like the Super Takumar 50/1.4 or FA*200/4 MACRO so I have not a single doubt that it will match or better any 5xmm within 2K of its price.

I'm always amazed at the amount of comments a Pentax / Ricoh announcement generates on DPR for such a niche brand, almost as if it causes fans of its competitors acute anxiety to still exist, following its own unique path delivering good quality equipment designed by lovers of photography for photographers while keeping to an optical philosophy of image rendering above pure measurement while every generation or so dropping a set of lens that all others have to be measured by :)

Ricoh lens

And Canon sells a 50/1.4 for $400. No wonder Ricoh is at the bottom!

Stephen McDonald: If a card with that capacity and cost is lost, damaged or malfunctions, the impact on the user will be great. I don't plan on using anything with more than 128 GB of storage, as I've had a couple of cards go bad on me. Unless you were shooting 8K video, uncompressed, how often would anyone really need more on one card?

People said the same about 1 GB cards too back in the day πŸ™„

SheepStar: At what point is one larger sensor better than 3 small ones? I mean, you're giving up the surface area anyway, and a larger sensor would/could gather more light. It won't have image stacking capabilities but 2 larger sensors could cover that. I am going to guess that manufactures won't go past 3 sensors now, at that point they will be better off with 2 larger sensors. Also I am basing this off absolutely nothing other then gut reactions and pixie dust.

Not at a point that a phone could handle a bigger image sensor. It's about longer focal lengths because people see the limitations of a fixed lens wide angle view

Trek of Joy: I'll still buy online - better selection (its Best Buy or nothing where I live), better return policy (no restocking fees), free shipping and so on. Since there will be no savings ordering out of state, makes used gear more appealing as well.

Best Buy has a 15 to 20% restocking fee, so they can sell the return for less as open box

No, generally sales taxes don't fund road repairs. That's gas taxes.

Marty4650: I suppose this had to happen. The amount of revenue states were losing was growing every year, as more retail was shifting to online vendors. So the Supreme Court made a pragmatic decision, rather than waiting for 100% of all retail to be online.

I believe the Court had it right the first time. After all, no state should have the power to tax commerce in another state. I realize they need the money, but a national tax would have been Constitutional, while having California tax transactions made in New York is definitely not.

Incidentally, this isn't without precedent. The Supreme Court has reversed itself before when it was necessary due to practical concerns. Believe it or not, the same Court once ruled that slaves were property and not people, and that segregation was legal.

No national sales tax. Leave it to the states

Cost isn't the issue, making it successful is. Just ask google , and all their failed tries.
