Who can know for sure the village actually is Berguen and that person is the mayor? ... and the mountains are not the Rockies?

PowerG9atBlackForest: So glad, I come from a longe range a painters; my father was a painter, my grandad was, surely my great grandad must have been.

This ban of photography fits well into another irrational Swiss related experience we had when once travelling the beautiful region of Grindelwald. At a rest in an alpine lodge, we mentioned to the owner how interesting it would be to have just a few signs on the way indicating the actual elevation. He immediately became excited and said "That's a good idea; we would then be able to make more money!"

What Swiss humor?

barrym1966: Either that horse has the neck of a giraffe or there's a ton of distortion

at Magnar et Manfred: Yes, I know, having that effect with horses is considered fun, ha! ha! Using a wide angle for convenience disgraces the horse.

The photographer in his wisdom just selected the wrong focal length. It happens so many times: Photographers know nothing about horses. You may teach them over and over again - they just take the wide angle and end up seemingly very happy with the results. Alas!

Here is what I always tell my son: You are not good enough to make a living from that.

montypieman: I'm loving these throwback cameras. Some look so familiar that I have to double check how long ago they were the current technology.

Yes, and there were magazines in those days that listed (and compared) every, every digital camera model available then. They were binge-read.

techjedi: Can someone explain the advantage of the upside down feature? Couldn't the rail accessory just be mounted to the top of the ball instead? It seems like the ball needs to be locked down tight regardless.

More exactly: ... at the location of the entrance pupil.
If known.

Will there be a Google plug-in for recognizing people? So, I could indentify, say, Mona Lisa as Mrs. Mona Lisa from Pisa?

justmeMN: That reminds me of the BBC comedy "Keeping Up Appearances". A snooty women wanted here last name to be pronounced Bouquet, but the actual spelling of the name was Bucket.

Oh, that sweet nostalgia! Feeling good now.

mario GTI: Cellphones kill camera industry, there is no doubt about it. Pretty soon only pros and enthusiasts will be using dedicated cameras, I'm pretty sure that the Olympus will be next.

In a couple of years the cellphones market will be saturated. People will then like to come back to serious cameras.

Never answer a question that starts with "if". Btw, a fast 75-85 mm (eq.), no doubts about that.

rialcnis: Will the m43 version be a 17.5mm with 35 equivalence? Or what? How long will it take to get one?

I am sure, the lens design (and focus length) will be the same for all mounts.
For my m43, I would prefer a 17mm lens, too.

And yes, a Trioplan 35 mm on a m43 camera would deliver the field-of-view of a 70 mm lens on a full-frame camera.

I think the same, and it wears off.
