goblin: A deliberate closure of what was supposed to be an open system:

- Olympus announces pro lenses that mirror Panasonic's existing offers (at least for the 45mm f:1.2)

- Panasonic coughs up a whole fully blown alter ego to the Oly OM-D E-M1mk2, just for the sake of giving owners of Panasonic lenses drooling over Oly's dual image stabilization a Panny body to attach their lenses to (as Dual IS works only within the same brand - Oly lens + Oly body or Panny lens + Panny body).

- Owners of the legacy (rare but excellent) Panaleica 4/3 lenses have only Olympus (E-M1 & E-M1ii)'s shoulder to cry on if they want decent AF performance with their lenses via adapter. Owners of other (read: Zuiko) 4/3 lenses are, of course, set to stay with the E-M1 (& E-M1ii) because Panny would implement anything short of Depth From Moon Craters AF, as long as it's not standard PDAF to handle legacy (and non Panasonic) lenses.

All of this instead of working on making both companies' dual IS cross compatible.

Bless you and your childlike naivety.

They are very much competing for the same customers.

Vote with your vallets. If enough of us do that and leave Adobe we can make sure that no other company will follow this model. As consumers we have every right to buy well defined products where we decide when it's time to upgrade.

Adobe makes no guarantees with regards to how often they'll update the app. There will come a time where they'll likely stop updating frequently or raise prices materially. That's the nature of chasing ever increasing profits.

cgarrard: I'll allow myself to pontificate Dale.... I'll quote:

"the camera that landed in our laps still felt rough around the edges and a bit, well... unfinished when it arrived."

That is one major reason Samsung isn't in the camera business any longer.

A piece of advice to stop yourself from looking like a fool. Read the entire piece. Not just a small quote...

ozturert: "Best ever" has become the norm in titles.

Agreed. But we both read the article. Why would DPR change their ways if they work?

Makes sense to me.
Tech improves over time - until it plateaus for a while.

Why is that so hard to grasp?

dan pv: Extremely post-processed images can't say nothing about the real character and IQ of the lens. Just look at the un-natural shines in the eyes of the the girls and the artificial colors of the first photo. I can only think that extrem PP was necessary to make the IQ of the lens look acceptable...
Trying to fool people this way is not a fair advertising.

*model on the right*

It could be fill flash.

And curse you. Now I cant stop thinking about how much the model on the left looks like a cross-eyed Gal Gadot (with the gorgeus-slider set to 50).

Sdaniella: bigger brother to 1"Sensor Sony RX0 ... 24mm ff.equiv fov f/4 (f/12.5)

wish RX1/10/100 series offered multiple exposure modes, too

wider 24mm ff.equiv fov lens for FF RX1R/II ... (not longish 35mm ... poor optically)

That's incredibly rude.
Just ignore and move on if not to your liking.

Would you do this at your work place?

Yup. The joy of being eternally known as the biggest joke on Earth.

A laughing stock for billions of intelligent, non-xenophobic people for many, many years to come.

We'll manage.

Did it burn a hole in Trumps brain?

Georgeee: Can they put the logo "Think Tank" under the lid? Look conspicuous

Gtvone. Sure.

My point was simply that the logo wasn't immediately visible. But a trained eye should be able to spot it - correct.

BTW - visited your website. Really great stuff. You really have nailed a certain look - your PP skills are very impressive. I mean that as big compliment.

When carrying the bag the logo is not visible. Im guessing that's how It's usually worn. At least that's how i wear mine

steelhead3: I'll wait for the Bergen model

Same as the Oslo model - with extra weather sealing.

In reply to:

Lars V: Is this double the Norway price, or double the U.S. price?

It's not only VAT. There is a "registration fee" of approx 150% on top of the VAT of 25%.

But close to double - correct.

samfan: Yes, it's nice. But if I want a small decent pocketable cam when I don't want to lug around this beast?

Or I just don't want to spend thousands, or lug around such beast in the first place, well Nikon has what?

Oh yea. Squat.

A nice upgrade for existing FX users for sure, at least for those that aren't tired with Nikon's constant QA problems. Also a nice new toy for those that always need the newest and greatest. Anyone else should think twice before investing in a Nikon system. They've burned their users way too many times already.

"They've burned their users way too many times already."

That "Sam" in samfan wouldn't be short for Samsung by chance? I guess Samsung only burned their users once.

Nikon does have lighter cameras already and are openly disclosing development of mirrorless cameras. Nikon for one have stayed loyal to their users by sticking to the F-mount.

The retrospective series have no visible logos.

SnapHappy32: Wait a minute.

The photo of the basketball player was in another article regarding flash photography. There was a speedlight behind his right leg. Another picture of him was taken from the front... about a week ago.. But I can't seem to find it now...

Can anyone confirm?

On another note. Now is the time to pickup a used d810. Im seeing them for much less than 2.000 EUR. Less than a d750.

That would have been a better way of stating it, yes.

The timeline. That samples taken with the camera were available at least a week ago - if I could find the photo I would be able check the EXIF data.

Simple isn't it? Guess not...
