Add tethered support for cameras and it may be able to take some pros from Lightroom.

My god there are bunch of miseries commenting here.... This should be a place for constructively engaging encouraging not diminishing. I have looked at some of the photos belonging to some of those commenting and I would say that they should avoid throwing stones and examine their own glass houses. Someone that steps up to the plate in tricky circumstances should be encouraged not knocked down.

happypoppeye: Only giving photographers a bad name with a lawsuit like that ...and probably losing a lot of jobs for future photographers trying to work with large companies.

Sorry but there is no excuse for a company like P&G who have whole departments dealing with their digital assests to go beyond their license agreements without permission. If anything this improves the position of other professionals if the case is won as it acts as a deterrent to other companies who think they can ride roughshod over small photographers.

Marc Rogoff: Just ordered mine... I shoot professionally with Nikon but use my Old system for travel and some pro work when I don't want to carry a heavy system. This camera is a game changer particularly with the new 25mm.

Well if you go with the Oly then definitely buy the 75mm - great for portraits but means you stand a bit farther back as its equivalent to 150mm FF but probably my favourite lens.

Boy! lots of questions... Yes I do use Olympus for commercial work... I regularly use my comers for editorial type images on commercial fashion shoots. I have some experience of Fuji but not Sigma. Usability with Only cameras depends on how technical you are as Olympus are the most customisable cameras I have used but you need a degree to navigate the menu system. Hope that helps without starting a fanboy war...

No need to change systems IMHO for portraits... I have done a lot of portraits on the EM-5... If you want slim DOF then get the faster lenses...

Its good enough for any shoot - really depends on your needs... For studio stuff I use Nikon and Hasselblad purely for the pixel count. I have used my OMD in studio and it performs admirably so no restrictions that I have found except very extreme low light work.

Good to see a bit of competition for Adobe who seem to be getting very complacent. They have allowed Lightroom to diminish in performance and continue charging more for it than any other competitors. Corel need a little more development of this product but it is a pretty good first try and hopefully will get better....

Not impressed with this - very limited for photographers with many images inn their portfolio...

Barney Britton: Apologies for the dead link which was in place a short time ago - it should be fixed now.

The higher the iso's get the more preprocessing there is in RAW files...to combat noise, moire and fine details - the smudging also comes from lenses and lens profiles being applied to RAW files...either way there is a Smudgyness to the files compared with the olympus files as they come into lightroom with adobe's processing. I stand by my reasoning as to why I personally wouldn't buy this camera. For the same money you can get one of the cheaper Panasonic or Olympus models without much image quality compromise and be able to upgrade your lenses to some of the finest mirrorless lenses around.

Thanks - I just downloaded a few to compare and I am afraid my opinion is still the same...it doesn't come close to the OMD EM1 for instance...very smudgy at higher iso's

Check this review out - comparison of iso's - I will reserve judgement till I see the RAW's for myself... http://www.ephotozine.com/article/nikon-1-v3-full-review-24870

Looks to me that iso100-200 is comparable to Micro 43's but anything above is rather soft and smudgy... A step up from the previous iteration but still wouldn't persuade me to drop Micro 4/3's... and I shoot Nikon professionally.

Wow! Fantastic update...I can now use all my old 4/3 glass again. Probably as fast as it ever was... Very happy indeed...

This is not only a D600 problem but apparently the D800 has the same issue. In fact my D3X has terrible dust issues - very frustrating that Olympus seems to have solved the dust issue yet Nikon with all their R&D money cant sort this out...

On article Nikon announces development of three 1 Nikkor lenses (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

facedodge: According to this depth of field calculator,(http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html) the 32 f/1.2 will have a dof of .77 Feet.

This is equivalent to an 85mm lens on full frame set to f/3.2 which has a dof of .78 feet. (At f2.8 the dof is .7 feet)

This is still very good and should be produce excellent results... Especially in low light as the advantage of f/1.2 is maintained in terms of exposure/shutter speed.

Depends how well it shoots wide open...how sharp and how much drop off...?

It would be good if they reduced the overall effect of the the clarity slider back to what it was before - it is now pretty heavy handed and not only adjusts exposure but introduces saturation which it didn't before.

On article Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy (375 comments in total)

Not much love for Adobe - this is another example from Adobe on how not to make friends and retain customers....just wish there was another "game" in town to compete with them properly. They are an extraordinarily arrogant company. Just look at the cost differences of software for UK users despite complaints over the last 5 years.... If the software was priced better they would reduce the incentive to "steal" software. Most young Photographers use 'stolen" software as the cost is out of the ballpark for them.
