I have wished for a digital TLR for a long time, but I'm not sure that it's actually a practical form factor for that. But if they make it happen, I will be saving my pennies.

I understand why the Sigmas have fixed lenses—they're perfectly matched to the sensor, and they probably have much finer tolerances that way. But it feels like you'd start looking like Dennis Hopper in Apocalypse Now (https://cinephiliamedia.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/apocalypsenow.jpg) pretty quickly if you wanted more than one of them.

Oh dear. At least the Omega 120 was ugly in a functional (and confusing. and terrifying) way. This is just awful and gaudy and tasteless. And it does nothing (apart from parting customers and their money) better than the "plain" version.
I very much love the Fuji bodies and lens lineup, but as I like video nearly as much as still photography, M4/3 has such an enormous advantage. But, wow, that 56 f1.2 is one of the loveliest lenses out there right now.
When I saw the announcement, I thought this might be an ideal Mike camera. It's making me think hard about my next camera—the RX100III, the new Canon 1" camera, and this are all between $800 and $900, and all seem fantastic. I'm excited. What a time to love small form-factor, large-sensor cameras!

Simply terrible, considering Maloof seems to have done his due diligence on the matter. Hopefully the case is over quickly, and in his favor. A perverse copyright-related note: If she would have published some of these images before 1978 but not renewed copyright, they would be in the public domain. But because they were created before then, but not published until after 1978, they are under copyright for at least 70 years from the date of first publication.
I think part of the problem is that a lot of people wouldn't pay the price they pay for a nice cellphone (or a decent point and shoot) for something that didn't have crazy technology and "versatility," even if you'd actually get much better pictures out of it. [Well...sure. That's right. A lot of people wouldn't. I'm not saying simple cameras would be required to take over the whole camera market. I'm saying some people WOULD buy them, and it's a shame those people don't have that choice, that's all. --Mike]

Mike, I think you're exactly right re nutrition. The fad diets are exactly that--fads. The only thing that really works is eating less, eating better and exercising more, which is what Weightwatchers does a good job encouraging. Good luck
