Time this over-bureaucratic relic of the Obama administration was removed.

Didn't vote for Trump, not Republican, not American. Anything else you want to be wrong about?

Wubslin: As a non-owner of both I can say that the non-ownership experience is exceptional, with the minor caveat that my wallet is weighing me down quite a bit.

@SirSeth - guess how I became so averse to spending money

Wubslin: The best one I don't buy means more money for me... keep buying the shiny toys. My investments are counting on you.

I'm definitely thinking of not getting the Nikon D5 this year. It's really expensive so the savings will be huge.

Why isn't he grateful for the exposure?

Stigg: oh happy day! the cameras are going to ship out!

soon it will be un-boxing day celebrations.

immediately followed by "test" photo day celebrations and the many shots of random plastic objects.

next on the calendar will be "look at this shot!" day, a day of very ordinary photos.

and finally there will "complete and utter boredom with this camera" day, which will usher in the "demand for a new camera" day.

and so it is in the world of DP.

I have found a sure-fire way of avoiding this never-ending cycle of acquisition and misery. Send me $50 to learn the secret.

Well, now the question of what not to spend my money on has become *slightly* more dull while the fans have another bone to fight over...

Maybe if I spend my money on neither, and invest it instead... that would be much more sensible. Enjoy your debt.

Alantkh: Did he download sensitive information from Dji servers? If he did, it’s illegal and I think Dji has a case

@Alantkh You admitted in your OP that you have no evidence that he downloaded any of their data. Has that changed?

Too bad they went to radio silence then isn't it?

Is there any evidence that he downloaded it? The radio silence from them implies that he didn't, otherwise there'd be legal proceedings landing right now.

But it's much more fun to speculate without evidence isn't it?

Tee hee.

Thanks for the lazy generalisation. I don't have a dog in this fight.

This bit had me in stitches:

'Well, just look at it, for heaven's sake. It's such a good camera. I mean seriously, it's hard to imagine how much more advanced a DSLR could be. For all of the improvements that have been made in mirrorless cameras over the past few years, the D850 still offers a combination of power, image quality, and luxurious handling (including that gorgeous viewfinder) which is hard to argue with.'

Such love for a shiny plastic toy.

I enjoyed reading the bit where he said 'So I don't own one (even though I'd like to), and I've barely used it'.

I also don't own one. It's truly a magical non-ownership experience.

trungtran: Glad Nikon won something. They need all the help they can get. No good deals from Nikon entry level DSLRs this past black friday. Canon meanwhile are selling the T6 like hotcakes with its low prices.

Don't forget to let us all know how Nikon is on the verge of collapse and you're making a killing shorting their stock. Just like you do every year.

Gee, looks like Nikon have been on the ropes for ages now doesn't it? Why won't people appreciate your wisdom?
