cosinaphile: see the original vs the bacteria file after a few generations

a perfect example of evolution and imperfect copying

fun stuff ......sorry to disappoint you buy withholding the 8 jokes i came up with ....lol

cosinaphile:
"degradation of information is evolution"

I like your statement. If degradation of information is your concept of "evolution", than I fully agree with you.

For example, our individual genomes "evolve" during our lifetimes by slow degradation of our genes - we call this proces aging. When the degradation of DNA in cells and tissues is large enough to block essential metabolic processes and inter cellular/tissue/organ communications, the organism is, according your statement, fully "evolved" (it is dead).
The same "evolution" occurs with different species. We "evolve" by slow cumulation od degradations inherited from our parents by imperfect transfer of genome from generation to generation. The gene pools of species are degrading = "evolving" according your statement. When the degradation of gene pool is large enough to block the speed and quality of breeding needed for species' survival , the species are fully "evolved" (they go extinct).

It is a perfect example of DEGRADATION of the information due to imperfect copying. An example of evolution would be a perfectly functional and sharp GIF of a galloping camel instead of horse's GIF after few generations... :)

panchorancho: Nikon is going to use Sony as toilet paper from here on out! Go Nikon!

BBQue wrote :"Hahaha - panchorancho that is so funny. Sony would simply stop selling sensors to Nikon. Good bye Nikon, it was nice to have you."

Why would Sony hurt itself? They can create a nice profit from selling their excellent and proven older sensors (most probably already produced with a very nice margin). And they still can differentiate themselves by the newest state-of-the-art sensors on their cameras. In this stage of market development it seems to be a comfortable win-win scenario for everybody... including the customer. The strategy now is to grow the market, instead of trying to kill each other.

Tibor1: I like those photos very much, except the one from the war zone. This collection shows that talented photographers can "freeze" the right moments and produce great pictures with iphone and most probably with any other phone and camera brand available today. The technology matures, brands are becoming less and less relevant.

There are two reasons I dislike the grand price picture.

1. I do not like the technical execution. To me, it is an ordinary snapshot not a great photography. There are probably millions of similar war-zone pictures on the web today - since it seems to be very "cool" (and, sometimes, probably even commercially profitable for the photographer) to take snapshots from war zones (VERY sad irony intended)
2. I do not like to see children in war zones. I do not need more and more and more and more .... photographically documented tragedies to form or deepen my negative attitudes toward wars and other evil things in this world. I understand however that many others need to see such pictures, for whatever reason. And their needs are very well satisfied by pros and amateurs nowadays (sad irony). Awarding these photos increases the interest to create more "cool" pictures. Everybody is happy... except those poor children-victims.

Well done Leica... Now please, connect this body with your Tri Elmar 28-35-50 and let another photographer's dream come true!

ogl: All announcements look like mockery - 90% of Pentaxian don't need such products.
Rebadged Tamron 18-270 - with bad SDM and weak optically.
High expensive 645 DFA90 for MF users and marginal DA560 for USD7000.
Pentax Q with the same tiny sensor and new dark zoom + adapter.
K-5II is old camera with old processor and sensor with minor tweaks.

You don't know whether to laugh or cry...

I do not know about other pentaxians, but I'm definitely happy with the new announcement. The K-5 was already a near perfect camera to me (great handling, solid & weather sealed body, optimal picture size, super low noise & high DR). The improved AF system means great companion to my limited lenses and hassle free shotting for me. Well done Pentax! :-)
