On article Adobe Camera Raw 9.1.1 now available (32 comments in total)

Does this update fix the problem with version 9 and 9.1 where the thumbnails in Photo Downloader appear as a blue rectangle containing the graphic of a flower in my paid for and wholly owned version of CS6?

I am using a MacBook Pro and, after receiving no satisfactory answer to my problem both here and on the Adobe forum, went back to using the 8.8 version.

It would be rather nice to have the final Camera Raw update just for the sense of history. :-)

On article Sony Alpha a7 II Review (852 comments in total)

I think the weight of any review must be put into the context of who is doing the review. Do the reviewers have an award-winning international reputation? Are they respected within the field of photography? I think the fact that both reviewers work for DPReview answers both questions. What we have here is simply an opinion that is as flawed as they reckon the A7II is. I found it, at times, patronizing, irrational and not quite as objective as they seem to think it is.

For the record, I do not own any Sony cameras. I do have a tenuous link in that I shot with a Minolta XD-7 for more than 25 years. I was probably taking photographs before the parents of the reviewers had even met.

However, I may become the owner of a Sony A7 II tomorrow. I am in the position to choose any FF camera but I simply do not want to have to carry the weight of a Canon or Nikon DSLR. And what attracts me most of all to the A7 II is the chance to shoot with the Otus Lite -- the Zeiss FE 55mm f/1.8 lens.

Hearty congratulations Louis on winning first place. A superb shot that is stamped with your mastery of the D-Lux 4 and its successor.
