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.
Regards

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.

Ruy Penalva: These seem to be made of anodized aluminum alloy. The same color as some cheap Chinese lantern.

I think the same, and it wears off.

Of course, not. This is why you can't buy one.

But not an Oberwerth lens.

dialstatic: I'll never understand why people do this. I'm sure they'll claim it was a simple mistake, but that's nonsense - it's indicated quite clearly what you can and cannot do. True, you have to take the time to read a sign or two but c'mon.

When I was there, I felt like I was a guest in this park, and by extension a guest of the American people. And when you're a guest, you abide by the house rules even if you don't always agree with them. It's sad that more and more people seem to think this applies to others, not to them.

All signs of the ever decreasing responsibilty awareness, respect and humility

Strictly electronic, and tiltable is a must.

With numbers rising to heights as they did in the last ten years, diagrams with a logarithmic scale for the sales would have been appropriate. We all are very capable of dealing with that format, aren't we?

Stacey_K: I honestly don't care how good a lens is optically, when they have something like that thin aluminum plate in them that will bend and screw up the lens if you just bump it into something, I have ZERO interest in owning it. It's the reason I don't own the 24-70 F2.8G nikon, it has a design flaw where the zoom ring screws up if the lens is ever bumped. They need to understand these things are going to be used. You don't have to be able to drive nails with them but they do need to be able to survive a bump without needing a $1000 repair.

And the point goes to ... Stacey_K!
