These B&W photos look great.

rsjoberg: Are we ever going to see a real replacement for the LX7?

I do not think so. If they stop making compact cameras because the market is disappearing as more and more people use their smart phones, I cannot see we will ever see a replacement for the LX7.

When I first read the heading, I misread it. While Olympus just announced that it will no longer support 4/3, I was under the impression that they had withdrawn support for it long ago. I entered the m43 arena a number of years ago, and continue to pleased with my decision.

The pre-production photos of the X100F shown here are very good and much better than other photos that I saw posted elsewhere.

Wye Photography: I wonder, I prithee, what will follow the X100F? The X100?

They have used the S, T and now the F. There are still 23 more unused letters in the alphabet. Seriously, the 100F seems to be an appealing camera. But as KISAP indicates, there are some possible enhancements including faster lens, weather sealing, touch screen, 4k video, more mpx, tilt screen, and my addition: IBIS.

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.

Incredible shot.

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.
