PieterB: Knowing Apple fans, they will all buy this without any protests and dish out lots of money to buy the newest peripherals for more money to replace their not so old peripherals.
For the sole reason, that if Apple changes everything, you must follow.

Apple fans seem to swallow just about everything. Apple seems to be like God to them and can't be questioned. Some of my friends are Apple lovers and there really is no reasoning with them. They will buy whatever Apple offers at any price without any questions whatsoever. It doesn't matter how expensive it is, or how many alternatives there are. They will buy Apple. Period.

As a person who questions everything about anything, that is really remarkable.

I disagree—I figured that the introduction of the new macbook pro line-up was a strong signal to buy an older model without regret. Improvements in computing speed have been rather marginal over the last couple of years, and the latest os is also running on my 7yo white macbook. It's a good sign that computers last longer and won't be outdated too soon.
This being said I am still big fan of their OS and products.

They should have named it Fondle Bar.

sSlling the entry mbp with 2ghz and no touchy bar (which frankly, spec wise, looks like the mbair update people have been waiting for) for a whooping fortune is ridiculous. And the 13" can't be configured with a 4core—which has always been my reservation against it—makes the new lineup look like an anorexic overly expensive joke with some improvements in productivity. Oh dear!

Look at that lens hood!
So cool. I'm in love already!

They will most likely end up in a big cardboard box with other plastic camera junk on one of the flee markets in Berlin. Congrats to this one!

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.

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.
