Rich Evans: FINALLY!!!!!

The camera that *ALL* sports photographers were waiting for. Time to ditch your nice L-glass boys and girls, forget about the amazing speed with better IQ of the A9 and D500. We finally got THE camera we were waiting for with a minuscule sensor size and passable DR.

Said no pro sports photographer ever....

"I don't have to proove anything to you or in here."
No, you don't. But you asked and I answered. Re. the other aspects of our exchange, you're contradicting yourself to such extend that makes the discussion pointless.

entoman: A page full of criticism for the Panasonic, which is....

"priced similarly to Nikon's APS-C flagship, the D500."

Enough said.

I don't think G9 even targets pros, all marketing brouhaha aside.
2+ bodies for a hobbyist... Doesn't make much sense for me. But it's for me. And I'm still waiting for E-M5.3... ;)

Q: Did you try out fullframe to see what you miss?
A: Actually yes. I don't hide my gear and I do put some shots into my gallery from time to time. I'm not a good photog, far from it. But at least unlike some high and mighty theoreticians I'm not too shy to show what I'm actually doing with my gear ;)

"If your hypothetical person was seriously interested in shooting sports or action, there are many cameras far more suitable..."
Oh, with this caveat I absolutely agree. But it's neither here nor there. I don't believe there are that many people who buy a separate camera for each use case they are interested in.

"The reason to exist of m43 is unknown"
I will enlighten you, my friend. The reason is that people buy the gear and enjoy using it.
"Because the bodies, lenses and prices are pretty much like full frame"
Yeah, especially lenses... You got to love theoreticians :)

entoman,
You made a blanket statement. There is a small problem with blanket statements: one can always find a case when the blanket statement is wrong.
For example for people invested in m4/3, G9 might well be better than D500. Capiche? :)

"Is it a case of calling pot calling the kettle black?"
Fair enough :) But I'm just curious, how long have you used m4/3 to become so disappointed in the system. I couldn't find any m4/3 gear in your gear list...

Conrad567: $1700? You have to really love taking mediocre shots to spend that kind of money on a 4/3 system.

"$1700? You have to really love taking mediocre shots to spend that kind of money on a 4/3 system."
Of course it's the camera. It's always the camera which makes mediocre shots. Noting to do with the person pressing the shutter button...

Or poor man's Canon. You can buy half a dozen perfectly functional YN560 IV flashguns for the price of a single Canon original.

"You can drive all your Yongnuo lenses around in your Landwind SUV." ... while calling from your iPhone...

There was a time when North American Big Three were laughing their heads off looking at cheapo Japanese "rice burners". Just sayin...

Hank Pi: Sometimes it’s necessary too read through the comments in forums such as this to appreciate the extent of misinformation there is about open-source software. There are reasons why Google, Facebook, Amazon, IBM, NASA, stock exchanges, bullet trains, the internet, Wikipedia, robotics and even Hollywood movies depend on open-source software.

Of the top 500 supercomputers in the world the breakdown by operating systems is:
Windows....0
Mac............0
Linux.....500

Oh, stop about phones and tablets, for gawd sake :) Android IS NOT Linux and Linux IS NOT Android.

When Blackberry stock hit a $100 mark on its way up I wanted to short it. I chickened out, unfortunately.

I'm still the same chicken with Apple... Guess some ppl aren't made to become filthy rich... :D

Give us breakdown for desktops, will ya?

Linux is an excellent platform for supercomputers and toasters. It's not a desktop OS and it will never be.

Ergo607: About time the Preview tests Adobe Lightroom alternatives. However, no slightest hint that dpr is planning such thing...

@ Dr_Jon
I'm not sure about crowd sourcing reviews (there is a big can of worms here). But there is a very good idea about voting. I would even simplify it. Just recently DPR had a ton of user polls, some of which mostly didn't make much sense at least for me.
But making a poll for LR alternatives would be really interesting.

john Clinch: Is it free as stand alone program Or are we tied into a free monthy subscription........

"GPL is not there to offer free code to everyone, it is there only to protect the users of the binary."

What a BS...

In reply to:

Focus Shift Shooting: I'm glad that DPReview embraces the hate we all feel for Adobe's subscription model. Even if I would have upgraded myself several times and it would have been the same or more by doing so, I Just don't like the fact that CC charges me continuously forever and if I fail to keep up then my software won't work until I do make a payment.

And $10 a month really isn't so much. But what if you also want their production premium suite for video? Oh, well that's $50 a month!

And that's $6,000 every decade. Assuming you start at 25 and stop at 75, that's $30,000 just to be able to edit your pictures and video.

That's why I hate Adobe's Creative Cloud.

"So you'll want your software you purchased in 2017 to be fully functional and work on whatever computer and camera you'll buy in 2027?"
No, but I don't want to pay until 2027 for support of my current camera and current computer. The support is already incorporated into the product and I'm not upgrading in foreseeable future.

"Do you think all this happens by magic or ground unicorn-horns?"
Nope. To make money business has to invest money. Nothing to do with magic or ground unicorn-horns. Just a simple capitalism.

"I pay property tax for life for the privilege of using my house."
Do you pay fridge tax as well?

"I pay health insurance for life for staying healthy."
Do you pay gym insurance too?

"I pay gas/electricity for life to continue using my car."
Do you lease your car?

"So please, tell me why this is so different?"
You perfectly well know why it is different. Just stop pretending.

turretless: Current version of Nik Collection works with PhotoLab just fine :)

Use "Export to application" and select a proper plugin. Don't forget to chose the right export method.
