Welcome to the Golden State. Even having placed everything in the trunk and completely hidden, someone broke into our rental car trunk with a crowbar and stole some all our stuff and trashed the car for fun in San Francisco.

Am I the only one tired of manufacturers not disclosing pricing when releasing new products, when each product was developed with a budget and a target price?

In reply to:

Chris Yates: Seriously, the 135mm lens needs in-lens optical stabilization to set it apart from similar offerings from Zeiss, Canon and Nikon. Otherwise, it begs to be adapted to a Sony A7 body.

@Badi, tell that to Canon

Most of the Lily footage was filmed with DJI drones. Lily was a scam from the start. If it's too good to be true, it probably is. Lily, like the evasive Canon FF Mirrorless.

Still thrilled with my archaic Dell 3007WFC. Got it new when IPS panels were a wonder.

Seriously, where I live, the trashy Digital Debbies have destroyed the photography culture and also our parks and recreational areas. They always have Canon equipment and the quintessential 70-200 white lens, park wherever they want and in handouts do refer to their equipment as Cannon.

Peter Del: The first three are wonderful.
I hope all the plastic is recycled!

Exactly my thoughts. I have to wash and clean thoroughly every bottle, can and container I recycle in my locality. It defeats the purpose. I rinse quickly. finished

Still waiting for a worthy Canon mirrorless I see and nothing to do in the meantime. Well, join the club.
