It seems the sample lens is softer on the right hand side of the frame, especially at the 12mm —25mm focal lengths. Good overall performance though.

Tizzio: I know its a prototype, but still...body design looks crude and butt ugly!

Looks like a serious tool to me.

aramgrg: Why in the world people pay these humongous premiums for 0.79 crop? I don't understand that. To tell the clients that the cameras are crazy expensive maybe?

I just purchased a used 645d for the feel. It feels different working with such a beast. It is demanding and helps you to focus on the picture you are going to take a a very different way 35 does. (but it still is more convenient than LF field cameras by far;)

Gio Magginni: Why can't they make a 6x9 digital rangefinder, the old brass ones were nice.

because focus accuracy and alignment of parts in 33x44 is already challenging. and then to get a sensor that size without defective pixels will be nearly impossible at a decent price point. Those digital beasts are far less generous and forgiving than film and film cameras were …

In reply to:

wildbild: The argument getty is presenting is roughly what I initially thought would be their position when I first heard about the case. It is this a very grey area of the legal arrangements around copyright and licensing, but I think getty will, at least for abig part, win the lawsuit.
What this all shows is, that giving away your right of ownership is vastly counterintuitive to the constitution of our western societies.

I am sorry to say this, but on the LOC.gov website the provided information for her photos is the following: "No known restrictions on publication."
When you download the photos no indication of her as the photographer nor any copyright information is provided in the EXIF. And this is, although on LOC.org information for every single image is very thoughtfully and in all detail provided.
Therefore I think that this lawsuit will most probably leave Carol Highsmith with nothing more than a devastatingly high bill from her lawers. Sadly.

digital iteration of the mju1 would be amazing!

Different Company. More contracts. More complexity. Sounds all highly legal to me. Not genuine nor morally right, but legal.

What isn't mentioned in the article and what would be interesting to know is, if getty and the library have a contract that allows getty to distribute the photos and therefore charge a service fee. Getty may be ruthless, but may not be stupid.

Retzius: sony sensor?

no. senser is manufactured by a new chinese venture in shenszen. They are suing sony for copying their invention at the moment. so selling these luxury cameras in the most importend market, in China, comes at the price of using this 3rd grade sensor tech...
