Ok you guys who have the Sony 24-70 I want to apologize for creating this thread in the first place.

No need to apologize. You figured out what the issue was and reported it…that's a Good Thing.  :)

I double clicked until it sounded like a castanet solo but no tools came up. I'm about to take it in for help with Yosemite, so no further reports for a couple days.

As a musician (trombone player in a swing band) I've found I've had a harder time adapting to how I find new music over concerns in changing tastes in music. I established my musical tastes starting way back as a teen and I have over 100 CD's to prove that now at 56.

With digital distribution channels and local brick & mortar records shops carrying fewer selections, I spend about as much time hunting for new music as I do listening to my CD collection.

Sometimes I get lucky like when I snagged a $5 Sony Special Markets CD on a collection of old swing band music and discover unknown recordings of old '30's orchestras with the most talented jazz riff artists I've ever heard. One of them is Glenn Gray's "Casa Loma Stomp". There are dozens of YouTube renditions of this song all with varying tempos and solo riffing styles, but that Sony SM CD has the best sounding version. Even though it sounds like the theme to a "Heckle & Jeckle" cartoon, the solos on this particular rare rendition just gives me chills. They're tight, melodically simple but with just the right amount of syncopation and super fast. It definitely gets my blood flowing in the morning.

It took me forever to find it but this one is the closest with regards to the solos...

When I find newer pop acts like Tame Impala and save to my Amazon wish list I start seeing them appear a couple of years later on talk shows like Stephen Colbert's Late Show where they performed last night. I didn't think that band would ever make it to prime time. They do have a borrowed retro sound similar to the Beatles though. Oh well...

Then I discover through remix searches like jjj's this unknown dude, Willie Bobo...

Thanks... we have a number of videos in the can and will be published over the coming weeks and one all about Yosemite.  Also have a number of new videos planned.

Yeah. I took one such break from the gear replacement merry-go-round, from late 2007 through early 2013. This was due in part to nerve issues with my right hand & shoulder that forced me to reduce my pic-taking activity, but mainly due to being happy, comfortable & confident with the stuff I had. Then I finally dealt with the nerve issue (via surgery) and have been experimenting with an array of new gizmos ever since. Think I've reached my limit again, though, and at a point where meaningful (to me) tech improvement seems to have plateaued. Now it's time to put some serious wear & tear on my favorite tools!

As for software…I've let my Adobe stuff lapse and am using standalone apps only. Except when printing I do all my post work on my iPad with Sandy's PhotoRaw and the LR-ish Photogene. These tools are unrefined compared to their desktop/laptop counterparts, but I don't mind working within their constraints.

We thought we had this fixed.  Give us a day or two to look into it.  Just about all the other things reported have been addressed.

As far as asking all those questions in the beginning when you open an account is to make sure you are not a robot or spammer.  You would not believe how often these nasty robots try to get in.  Answer the questions and we know you have been to the site.  Once you do it you are done.  It is one of the reasons we have a clean site without a lot of trolls and such.  You can post without any hassle after that.

I think everyone should take a look here to see how the new Import UI is faring with users:


Yes, and you can read here just how concerned and understanding the Lightroom manager is with all this 'feedback' ...

I would love to see just how large the pool of new users where Adobe reps actually did visit new users in their homes to determine their choice to revamp the Import dialog. I'd be curious just how many instances it took to initiate the action for this move.

Don't get me wrong, I am not opposed to updates and/or streamlining the process ... but those concerns should not supersede established and existing capabilities without justifying the process. The replacement/improvement should hold value for all users, not a select few that have yet  to invested anything in the process.

Based upon the participation and content of the feedback forum, it really indicates that Adobe management is tone deaf and out of touch with a pretty significant cross-section of their existing user base.

Impressive. Give us some idea of the hardware setup: drives, bus, videocard etc.
