Interestingly, Professor Brian Cox, just the other day, suggested that the LHC proves that ghosts don't exist.  Google it, it's an interesting idea.

Really?

When did music get easy like a cellphone? I had a guitar from the age of eleven until I sold it in my very late teens. I never could tune the mother. How/where do I suddenly find the ability and download to play when I can't?

I was referring to Spotify  and Apple Music and the like. It's no longer necessary to own/store/curate any recorded music.  My wife just says to her iPad, "Play me Cosi Fan Tutti" and out it comes, through the stereo.

As for being an art for the elite - were that so there'd never have been a jazz/pop/rock/c&w industry at all. Hell's teeth, it was slaves wot started jazz, and poor miners in the mountains that fiddled and/or sang their way into fortune and fame. Even one of their daughters managed that.

Poorly worded by me. Sorry.  I meant that only the rich could afford recorded music or to employ live musicians.  You're absolutely right about jazz, etc. I was visualizing the courts of Europe.

I encourage you to try guitar again.  They are great companions.

George, though I appreciate your thoughtful support of my "guiding hand" vs coincidence observation in my OP, I don't take Bill's statement as smug and condescending, so there's no need to be so abrasive in your response to him.

I believe in science and logic. Science reveals greater odds according to the evidence when one considers the size and age of the Universe and a realization of the seemingly impossible likelihood it all started with the Big Bang and would lead to life we now have on this big rock called Earth.

I was even thinking about the question of how evolution knew to give mammals and humans ears since sound is a specific section of the wave spectrum that didn't seem to be needed. I can understand us evolving eyes for sight due to the spectrum of light. But sound? What were our primordial ancestors not hearing when they didn't have ears and then had to evolve to get them? All the other evolution of senses makes sense, but sound is a mystery on how and why it was developed.

Some 4116s have shipped through B&H and other dealers, but worldwide all of the X1Ds are still apparently very much back ordered despite the fact that Hasselblad has ramped up production in the last month or two.


Do you have any idea if any deal would be faster than the others? For example, Adorama vs B&H? Are they the only ones selling it in the US?

I pre-ordered an X1D 4116 edition on B&H. They initially said it'd ship in Feb, but now they no longer have an estimate for shipping. Has anyone heard when the 4116 edition will ship? Has any store actually shipped them yet?

I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but when a novel style is introduced some
copycat fool is bound to rush in. Anyway, here is my attempt in the style of a
Chinese hanging scroll.

nb: This is the only time this concoction will be let out of the house.

Regards,
Dale

you are basically limited to only the much older Nikkor glass with a manual ring, thus no G glass, and I assume the same is true for the M645 adapter.

Fortunately:
- the Otus have an aprture ring,
- there are quite a few lenses I use wide open most if the time (105mm f1.4, 70-200mm f2.8,...).

Cheers,
Bernard

I do not like negroes (see, I even use almost an N word on purpose)...

I can't believe I missed this (emphasis mine). WOW. Are you f'ing kidding me? While you are certainly entitled to your own opinions, you and others like you are exactly what is wrong with this world. Heaven help us.

Thanks for sharing your racism...If this forum had an ignore list you'd be on it.

My personal thought:

Photography.com = $$$$$

Photography.info =

most pro sites use .com. How many pro sites have you ever seen  .info?

As stated above, its worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
