Trued1: Well how good is ut compared to the Sony 135 mm f2,8 [T4,5] STF The BOKEH KING!

What is "much" here? Would be great to have numbers to make thoughts to facts. I have the Sony FE 85mm 1.4 as well and that is a great lens with a limited DOF but it does not have the same "creamy" bokeh. Sony has quite a few lenses now on the DXO TOP ten lenses. 4th 85mm GM 1.4, 5th 55mm 1.8 and 10th with the 90mm 2.8 MACRO. I am a happy owner of them all. But the STF is just one really great specialty lens that does marvels for me.

walker2000: If Huawei phones have security concerns, why do European let them in?

Chinese spies are the most active ones in Europe. The play a nasty game with annual "Questioning" of chinese people who resides here, they lay a gigantic puzzle and are patient. That is the big problem for western countries, we are way too shortsighted and have no senes for long time planning and strategies.

tkbslc: I was about to order one of these, actually, and this has given me pause.

I do get the concern, but why is Huawei singled out? Why not OnePlus, or Motorola (Lenovo)? Why not Alcatel? Aren't all iPhones made in China anyway? Couldn't the Chinese Govt infiltrate FoxConn?

Get a SONY they are engineered in Lund, Sweden with some of the best people from good old SONY-ERICSSON.

One should stay far away from HUAWEI. Here in Stockholm they have recruited tons of ERICSSON engineers teasing team with great salaries. Good idiots, not knowing who they work for. The US Government warnings is NO surprise for the Swedish government who has known about the issues surrounding the Huawei company for many years now. I am surprised that this comes as news in the US.

System failure. The responsibility of the other people in the scene, what did they do? I have been to numerous rally and racing activities both as a driver an spectator. Never EVER stand in the outer perimeter of a corner. Always sad when there are accidents. Hope the guy gets a good recovery and hopefully his poor judgment could serve as a reminder for people going to motorsport events in the future. If You are interested in snow rallies come to Sweden in 2 weeks to see the best FIA WRC Rally Sweden!

My a7rII makes pictures for a UHD 55” screen and P800 printer. No need for new houses. But most PicsArt are Aten with a RX1r... + My FZ1000 does it all and is still after 4 years on the podium.

Sorry Apple apology is NOT accepted. This is NOT acceptable business standard to fool loyal customers, This has to come to an end ASAP. Customer has to be compensated for the wrongdoing of Apple inc.

JonB1975: So, Apple - what are you doing in the rest of the world??? There's no discount on a replacement battery in the UK, for example....

The sh*t-storm has just started. Once the sht* hits the fan Apple will come to submission.

The most honest thing for Apple to do is to take a bite of the sour apple and offer customer worldwide a reasonable compensation.
a, a decent trade-in value lets say 50% of the initial price for the original buyer
b, a loyalty incentive with a 75% discount on the purchase of a new phone when returning the old.
This could "clean" up the market of bad phones and give Apple a better reputation.
Apple has the finances to take this, the management wight have been negligent in scenario planning. What has happened now was apparently not planned for, but nevertheless the company has a responsibility to be honest.

Shortened version of my letter to Tim Cook....
Dear Mr. CEO Tim Cook
Our relation has over the years been, I hope, of mutual value for both parties.
My latest iPhone 6 128GB has caused me a lot of concerns and recently the information on Apple´s deliberately ”slow-down” of the iPhones is troubling.
About a year ago I visited the AppleStore in Täby/Stockholm and complained over the battery. This when the iPhone 6 was 2 years old. I paid for a new battery but on my request of taking the old battery home and perform my own measurements was firmly denied. Becuse I had signed the work order and in the small fine print I ”apparently” waived my rights to the old battery. A month ago I visited the store again since the ”new” only one year old battery was showing the same signs as the original one.
I would like Apple to come up with a solution for me. Now it is time for Apple to show the same loyalty towards me as I have shown Apple over the years.
Best wishes / Jörgen Trued

In reply to:

Mateus1: The only problem with Sony FF mirrorless is they still do not offer 35/2 AF and 135/2 primes.
I am not interested in the monster 35/1.4 and in f2.8/35mm.
Lack of 135/2 prime is enough reason for no buy.

Do what I did. Get the worlds best camera the Sony RX1r with the outstanding Carl Zeiss 35mm f2. Case closed!

Trued1: Have the new STF been compared to the old A mount 135mm STF? This lens is an absolute favourite for me on the a7rII, but I need to go manual focus with the LAEA-3 adapter. Can it get any better optical wise then it already is? Guess Sony made a strategy for the 85-100mm fixed range now with 4 lenses WOW! Happy to have the 85GM and 90Macro two stellar lenses and now a NEW 100STF. Should I trade in the 135STF? Need to see proof that it is much better to make the shift.

AF in this kind of lens is NOT necessary. The pictures are mot often "slow" flowers etc taken with the camera on a tripod. STF will never be a run and gun type lens. So until I see PROOF it makes better "bokehlishiousness" compared to the old one I will just wait.....

I would like to see the same shot taken with the old A-Mount STF lens. I want to see if it is worth buying the new one. Has anyone seen pictures like that somewhere on the web?

On article DJI reportedly takes majority stake in Hasselblad (191 comments in total)

As a swede I was actually thinking about taking the step from a7rII to the ever so awesome X1D. But after this news that is NOT going to happen. Chinese Hasselblads NO way. Just like both Volvo and SAAB Cars taken over by chinese.........
Please find some SWEDISH investors for Hasselblad!

China is NOT a democracy it is a country who put opposition i labour camps and copies anything made and developed in the western world. last thing I saw was a copied Porsche Cayman. Apparently they have te guts and we should have the guts to refuse their products and apply pressure on "our" companies to pull out of the dictatorship.
I always look where a thing is made can I avoid any product from china I am pleased. Sony has some products still made in Japan and my MacPro is made in the US with pride.

Trued1: Time to clear things out....
I am swede having worked with military UAV/UGV/UUV systems for many years.
The court ruling comes with no surprise to anyone in the drone business. Only very stupid countryman/woman would have bought a camera drone. The ruling can NOT be taken to a higher court. It stands.
You are allowed to fly drones over your own property but you are not allowed to eavesdrop on your neighbors. But it also needs to be in a no-restricted zone. Most of Stockholm is for example already contolled airspace.
The rights for citizens NOT to come under surveillance of a droneoperator has been ruled of being of a higher value then the possibility to make aerial photowork.
The ruling means that you must be in "manual" control and physically present near your camear. It comes down to 50 cm or an armlength. 10m bluetooth might be illegal. This law has come parallell with the ruling for use of cameras mounted inside cars and on bicycles. You must be with your camera when You operate it.
It will be in principal impossible to obtain permits. The only drone flying will be by governmental agencies. A firemarshal or police who is in charge of the scene of an "operation" can grant a private drone operator to fly or even theoretically order a drone owner to fly if he/she is present. Just like he can order the demolition of a house at a fire.
I hope more countries follow the Swedish example strengthening the public freedom not to be Surveiled, reduced chances of catastrophic airplane incidents, less chance of junk falling on people.

@redseer I have a good sense for all diversified drone business civilian and military. The Swedish people have elected the politicians (+80% turnout) and this is what the people want. Sorry but a minute minority of the citizens who are involved in a drone photo can not set the standards. The overwhelming majority is for the ban and this will stand. I see that it is "suicide" to say the things I do especially being a photographer. But hey guys I can take a fair debate. I was on the Speech and debate team on my US High School way back in Gresham Oregon, Go Centennial Eagles!
