Edmond Leung: A right direction to lay off employees when a company cannot maintain its business and profitability. Employees, just like the shareholders, they are the stakeholders of the company and take responsibilities for the success and defeats of the company.

"You can trust me, I'm HR expert" -- I've been in the workforce for 40 years, and forgive me, but that phrase is a textbook oxymoron. The photos and the article in question is a proof of it. Detroit is a ruin for reasons wholly other than business mismanagement. Enjoy your day, I am done here.

"western managers can't manage", "western managers can afford to much cocaine " — As opposed to the superior China managers who have slave workers?

onlooker: DPR, how about an article "This is where G9 falls short of GH5 in the video department"? So far there are bits and pieces in your various articles, but a good summary would be nice.

Najinsky, I might even consider paying $500 more if it had all the goodies, G9 + GH5 rolled into one, plus something really special to make you know you bought a flagship, but there is no way I will buy two different cameras because that would be rewarding bad behavior, and we shouldn't do that.

Yes, and yet there are some still features not present in GH5. Seems like a weird marketing game. You want better video features, go to older (and more expensive) camera that's missing new still goodies Panasonic put in this one because they artificially crippled some video features in G9. Just make one flagship already, and stop playing those dumb games. That really puts me off.

onlooker: I think CBS has an idiot for a lawyer. This is not going to end well for CBS.

Yes to both Ron and cdembrey, but in this case fighting the case out of spite will damage the corporate image more than any imaginary monetary gains could be. Lawyers do not make such decisions on their own, so it means their CEO is a #@%&, too.

onlooker: Take underexposed photo, up the brightness and saturation. ETH Zürich must be a research powerhouse.

"has probably been picked up by DPR only because of ETH Zurich's significance in the world of engineering." -- Yes, I am sure DPR regularly follows universities according to their research ranking. You were kidding, right?

Looks really nice. Pity about the not fully articulating screen.

bergat: So it is impossible to bring apple iphone for litium battery?

You can bring it on board, just not in checked luggage. I never check in my electronics anyway -- I want them in one piece when I deplane.

Potentially nice, but the disadvantage is they are not weather-agnostic, while a backpack is.

MrBrightSide: When are you blokes going to stop fooling around with these little toys and add test shots from real cameras to your database—a Hasselblad shooting Provia, maybe or a Wista loaded with Ektar....Or are you afraid of what you'll discover?????

"a Hasselblad shooting Provia" — Try spelling out "DPR".

Can we please petition the French Academy of Correctness to regulate how many stops can a photo be pulled in the shadows? Can you imagine how many lives that could save unnecessarily lost in endless DPR flame wars?

Okapi001: Well, now everybody are checking his car on Craigslist. Mission accomplished.;-)

"Mission accomplished.;-)" -- I thought the mission was to sell, not to have million people look and laugh. I've seen that confusion at many companies as well.

Lexxie: Leica Camera AG has a bit over 1000 employees, about 350M turnover, it is a small company. and made serious losses around 2010, and about 30-50M profit lately. I expect that there are shares and preference shares and perhaps even super-preference shares. The block that is offered by Blackstone are just shares, an investment block, it does not really matter where they go. It is a so called "prestige" thing.

"Meaning, Blackstone not getting a return of their investment?" — Investment companies like Blackstone look for rapid appreciation or massive returns. They got that out of Leica already. Now they are moving on. Blackstone owns over $300 billion in equity. Leica has completed its turnaround, and is unlikely now to dazzle with growth, and even though they are profitable, they are relatively small for an investment company of that size.

Strange that no one mentions Panasonic as a natural investor.

onlooker: "famed Zenit camera brand" — Famed? You never used it, did you? ;) I did, and after fighting rusted spools, misaligned film plane, etc., I was soooo happy to switch to Praktica. The quality difference was not even funny.

@The Davinator -- Was your the export version? Mine was domestic market. Eastern block tended to pay a lot more attention to export production.
