(unknown member): I knew the first thing I'd see in the comments is men whining about this.

So, one could say you had preconceived notions, and they were correct in this instance, thus proving the behavior of all men.

You know, like some preconceived notions others supposedly have against female photographers?

I can't get over the decision to call the glow in the dark lens "Blackstone" and the non-glowing "Firefly". Seems completely backwards.

Jason Haven: The negativity around here is insane.

A couple notes, since I have this lens:

- It's sharp enough wide open, unless your subject is pretty close.
- By f/4 it's sharp (pixel peeping sharp) across the frame
- Lens is absolutely silent, and incredibly fast.
- Build quality is top notch.

For my uses, it's a fantastic lens, since I don't intend to attempt much in the way of 'up close at f/2' photography with it.

I also own the 23mm f/1.4. The f/2 is a better all around lens. The f/1.4 is better for astro work, and portraits (if your goal is to blur the background). Both tools have their uses. :)

It's a company that made a product. The product costs money. Potential customers have every right to be critical if it doesn't look good to them. If you don't like a product, that's not "negativity", it's being a critical consumer. Why should we praise something we don't consider good?

bohdanz: I subscribed last month to CC, installed the new app updater - and don't see Lightroom 5 for downloading. Here we go, Adobe.

Just checked my Application manager and Lightroom 5.0 is downloadable, so it is included with CC.

It is, actually. Lightroom that is. Strange if they won't include LR5.
