Slapstick Noir: I think it's going to be at Photokina. One year ahead announcement sounds like a suicide. September is the endpoint for me. Everything past that would be a fail, even if the camera itself is good.

What are you talking about? You even correctly quoted what I typed...."IF" it's good....but then ignored it. You wrongly attempt to bash me at my judgement of a camera that we know nothing about immediately after you judge a camera based on what its release date might be?? Come on now. I agree, brand slaves are pretty stupid, but stupid people are pretty stupid, too.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever read. If the camera is good, then it's worth a possible more 6 months to wait. Why are you drawing some stupid imaginary line in the sand at September?

W5JCK: That photo is crap anyway! I can't believe it would win any award. So a terrible photographer and blind judges as well.

I'm certain everyone appreciates your expert input. Thank you.

vscd: Hate to say I told you so! ;)

"told you so" logic:

Year 1: Yeah, you think it's cheap now, but they'll just raise the price next year!
Year 2: Don't get used to it, they'll raise the price soon!
Year 3: Mark my words, they're going to raise the price!
Year 4: As soon as they have you locked in, they're going to raise the price!
Year 5: Yeah, you like it now, but they'll raise the price, I guarantee it!
Price finally increases $3: Told you so!!! I'm so smart!!

Martin JC: The cost of renting Adobe editing software has gone up.

Do you really want locked into Adobe so much that it would be difficult to move to an alternative if photo editing prices move sharply upwards....

You can't get locked anymore into it in 12 months than you can right now. The pain of switching over now or months from now will be the same.

On article Why brand market share shouldn't matter to you (552 comments in total)
In reply to:

sts2: Do people seriously base their buying decisions on who's number 1 on some kind of chart?
Yeah, would be great for competition, innovation, and personality, to buy whatever everybody else has/wants...

I have done this before, it does have some merit in certain markets. I once bought a side-by-side UTV and didn't know much about the different brands, so I just went with the #1 in the market to ensure there was at least a semblance of quality and availability of parts.

Some people just want to take photos, they don't care which one is technically better, so they opt to go with the most popular.

melgross: The only thing I can tell from those images is that the lens seems to have a lot of vignetting. Otherwise, I’m not as deliberately as pessimistic as the Nikon fanboys here are.

The second of the three photographs shows little-to-no vignetting, so I'm not sure if it was added in post on pics 1 and 3 or removed on pic 2. Regardless, vignetting is almost at the bottom of the list of concerns since it's so easily fixed in post most of the time.

Peiasdf: Another Windows vs. Mac article by DL Cade this week. Is DP that desperate for clicks and ad revenue?

That his current machine, which was a Mac, wasn't doing what he wanted, so he built another. How can you get any idea of what he upgraded from for comparison if they don't tell you?

Juksu: When uncreative people are stuck with expensive gear that they have no idea what to do with, they flock to take the same photo over and over and over, so they can compare their cameras. Whatever happened to people using photography to document the reality of their world and the time they are living in. ..

Let people photograph what they want without judging them, you'll find your time will be freed up tremendously to do other things.

So because it was briefly mentioned that he used to use a Mac, this is automatically now a Windows vs Mac article?

Tim C.: It's a nice promo video for a drone but how about a foldable camera that can fit in the pant pocket? And yes, I am just blabbering nonsense other than expressing my little interest in drones.

I never understood comments like this. You have little interest in drones yet you still clicked this article and decided to comment? Makes no sense to me.

surlezi: I much preferred the times when DPReview was about Digital Photography Reviews.

Yeah, they should be focusing on the 8 cameras that got released last month and the 3 lenses a day that are being released right now.

cosinaphile: yikes .... the nanny state and overzealous regulators have murdered another american business ..... not completely yet .... give it time

Are you really blaming someone else other than GoPro for their recent business failures? GoPro became stagnant with their products and their attempt at expanding their business literally fell out of the air.

YES! Another Adobe post to up those comment counts on the site. These articles have to be the biggest traffic drivers on this site by far.

PaulSnowcat: Here is the chance to get 50-100 for everyone who was complaining about the price. It is THE LENS, truly, a masterpiece!

I have to agree with this. Damn it's amazing for portraits.

minh0204: Peak Design is like a video production company that happens to flip cheap bags and gears from China and Vietnam for profit at this point.

If truly the CEO of Peak Design, posting in a dpreview comment section is ballsy af.

Came for the comments and was not disappointed. One of these days all you blowhards will actually leave Adobe products behind like you say you will, but I don't think that day will be today.
