The camera may be great in what it is designed to do. At first I thought the photo of the camera in this article was upside down. This camera is one of the ugliest bodies I have seen.

I hope that they make it look more appealing before it is released.

This is very exciting, although cost and size is definitely an obstacle. It will be interesting how the GFX 50S stacks up against the 645Z.

Is there a market for the a99 II since nearly all the promotion to date has focused on the A7Rii? What advantages does the a99 II have over the A7RII?

howardfuhrman: I am surprised that Ms. Highsmith only asked for $1B, perhaps her damages are far greater. I will be watching this case as it progresses through the courts. I do not suggest she begin planning an early retirement just in case the court reduces her damage award to some minimal amount.

Are you suggesting that if one of your or my photos that either of us copyrighted were sold by someone else for their own gain and we took that someone to court and won the lawsuit, the minimum damage award would be $36mm? I am certainly not familiar with court awards, but that does not make sense?

Roland - Yes I made my comments in jest. Assuming that Getty sold 10,000 of her images for $10 (just a WAG - I have no inside knowledge). If this case ever gets to trial which I do not believe it will, the Court may decide that Getty must reimburse Carol 100% of the sales proceeds or $100,000 and maybe penalty damages of double that amount. In that case, she would receive $300,000 that she would share with her attorney. The way I see it, the claim of $1B is merely for her to get some publicity. Likely Getty will settle for $10,000-25,000, or nothing. Carol will get nothing after attorney fees, except $1m of free publicity, which is probably all she wanted from her lawsuit. Just my 2 cents!

I am sad to hear of Michael's passing. The world of photography has lost a good one. My condolences to his family and friends.

The samples show it is one thing to have the capability of getting an image at 3.2mm ISO (marketing hype) and another thing to get an acceptable image at a far lower ISO.
