Is it just me, or a lot of folks disappointed by Photokina announcements?
I can't recall this weak of a PK. Seems like PKs of past had the forum all a twitter.
Maybe our expectations are outrunning technology?
Meh, news from Leica. CMOS S but no boost in resolution, and they've uglified the M-E replacement for the type 006 (I suspect to suppress any design desire). A M camera with no LCD priced for the insane. A cosmetically enhanced silver 0.95 which is cool.
Hardly anything to talk about from Canon, who seems to need some newsy stuff. 1.6X cropped sensor camera that is already drawing criticism from Canonphiles. Hmm.
A few overdue lenses for the Sony A7 system, but nothing to replace the A99. Meh.
Nikon … ?
No new Phase One DSLR camera … again.
Oddly, last PK's punching bag, Hasselblad, had some decent offerings for their followers, but no new versions of some aging optics like they did with the 50mm. No 80 meg back.
New lights from Broncolor, but no answer to Profoto's B1.
Not that I'm complaining … my funds are tight right now so I'm glad there isn't some gasified bauble that makes me drool unending dollars.
