Re: Lr6 shipped.
Very Good! I actually wondered for a second if it could be true.
Any new gaudy Hasselblads, Leicas, or other "special edition" cameras?

And I wonder - the Phase One 80MP small camera for drone - that was a April Fool's Eve release. Real? Joke?

No doubt you have benefited from the (Tm) Olympic Grade 5 Minute Miracle Exercise Machine, operated 5 minutes a day from your TV couch, that has enabled you to do handheld bird-in-flight shots. After all, that lens has to weigh a LOT. Do you know if B&W, SinghRay, or Lee makes the 571mm diameter CPL? Naah, surely they must have a drop-in CPL for the lens.
