SR Henstra: I Olympus should consider to include Capture One in basic version as Sony does with a not too expensive full version upgrade. The raw conversion is so good! Aperture was very good as well but Apple stopped supporting it, works more or less on 10.12.1 but occasionally crashes and show misbehaviour.

Maybe you should repair the database, I still use Aperture and don't experience crashes.

Mateus1: Olympus M1 mkII versus others:

M1 mkII $2000 - Fuji X-T2 $1600
M1 mkII $2000 - Fuji X-Pro2 $1550
M1 mkII $2000 - Sony A6500 $1400
M1 mkII $2000 - Sony A7 II $1500
M1 mkII $2000 - Pentax K-1 $1950
M1 mkII $2000 - Pentax K-3 II $850
M1 mkII $2000 - Nikon D500 $1800
M1 mkII $2000 - Nikon D750 $1800
M1 mkII $2000 - Canon D6 $1500

For me it's clear, no m4/3 cam is worth in 2017 this mad $2000 price. Period. I do not take all these arguments about M1 mkII size benefit (give me a brake it's bigger and heavier than all APS-C, and same as a few FF, and Olys Pro lenses are huge, heavy & pricely too), WR (others are WR), 4K (others have it), IBIS (others have it), build (other are also bulid great). Most important thing is: M1mk2 offer the tiniest sensor in big body - it's 25% size of FF and almost 2 time smaller then APS-C (you know how it impact on IQ). All I can say is this: I would never pay in 2017 for best m4/3 more then $1300 if I have such amazing offer from APS-C and FF today.

Just 3:
Fuji X-T2 €1699
Sony a6500 €1699
Nikon D500 € 2149
So here things start a little different, although not cheap of course.

mujana: Is there anyone who can give Euro prices for this camera?

€ 1999, so cheaper than the D500 (€ 2149)

photoshack: I have it, have had Pro before, and don't know any actual Pros that use it. The uploader is annoying as it is trying to suck up any card or device it sees...not my style.

The uploader does not try to suck up any file, it just uploads new files in the (sub)directory it is monitoring

Jim Salvas: I mistakenly let that auto uploader take over and it uploaded thousand of template and system images. It's a pain to have to delete them and now my private photostream is clogged with lots of pics of patterns, blue skies, textures and such. I'd pay a little to get Flickr to autodelete them.

The uploadr makes sets with the name of the directory the file is in, so it should be easy to delete files from a specific directory

The autouploader worked well, I used it to automatically backup my jpg files, very convenient. Probably this made it too easy to upload a lot of files.

On article Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows (1391 comments in total)

TrapperJohn: Looks nice, but it also looks like a standard large, fat DSLR with a retro body. I'd love to dig my old F3 out and use it with a digital back (now there's an idea) but this doesn't really advance the state of the art any.

Is Nikon missing the point? The Oly EM5 wasn't successful because it looked like an OM1. It was successful because it was smaller, quite a bit smaller, and so are the lenses. It may look old, but it's packed with new ideas. And it's the new, interesting approach that makes it appealing, especially the lack of bulk that makes using it less of a chore and more, well, fun.

Look at the Canon 100D, it can be D7100 size

praktinafan: I still use the boxed version of Aperture (comes on a DVD) and so I can not upgrade to 3.5. This update only works with an AppStore license! Bummer

It is possible: change the language to English and restart. After that you can update.

It's too small. I would like to have space for a jacket/sweater and some food as well
